It is a supernatural jaunt through trust, learning, and growth. But, things are not as they seem…to find out why, read Rise Of The Darkness.
C. A. Milson has crafted a story that bridges both the mysterious and the horror in a supernatural thriller. On a scale of 1 to 5, I give it a 4.8”. Cynthia Lea Clark - Psychologist, Author, Actor and Book Review Contributor.
“Seventy percent horror and thirty percent paranormal, The Chosen will appeal to Stephan King fans who love a little bit more supernatural. Well written, this novel is very dark, deep and even disgusting at times, but full of details to keep the storyline on track and worth reading”. Amber Katze - Book Reviewer.
