For many of us, our love of horror takes us beyond the silver screen to other outlets that aim just as hard to haunt our dreams. For some, it’s video games and the macabre worlds they build one horrific pixel at a time. For others, it’s the inked world of comic books and the surreal art that seemingly defies logic. For others still, it is in horror novels that they turn their gaze. It’s where imaginations can run rampant, free from the shackles of predetermined visuals, allowing the reader to conjure up their own unique visions of terror.
Such is the opportunity for Brady Goldsmith’s latest novel The Darkest Hour: Forsaken, which recently came out. Featuring cover art by Christopher Shy, the story is a horror western that follows two lifelong friends, Patrick and William, who commit crimes of opportunity only for one mission to end horribly wrong. After making a deal with a demon to save his life, Patrick is then betrayed by William and a game of cat-and-mouse begins that can only end with deadly consequences.
“One last job. A hit on a locomotive will bring Patrick and William their golden payday. At least, that’s what they hoped for.”
The Darkest Hour: Forsaken is currently on sale for $.99 (Kindle version) on Amazon
