Scott Nicholson's THE SKULL RING

Scott Nicholson's latest novel, The Skull Ring, is now available for Kindle and at Smashwords. Being a fan of Nicholson, I've anticipated this novel for a while. After the small publisher who was going to publish this book went defunct, it appeared this book would not see the light of day anytime soon. But lo and behold, Mr. Nicholson decided to dive into the waters of ebooks, and now this book is available. I've had the pleasure of reading it and here is a brief review:

Scott Nicholson changes things up a bit in his latest offering, THE SKULL RING. This novel is a suspense story set in the mountains of North Carolina about a young lady named Julia Stone. Julia is searching for clues to her past, who she is, what happened to her, and what happened to her dad. Julia lives in a near constant state of fear and finds it hard to trust others. The one person she does trust is her doctor, Dr. Forrest. As they delve deeper into Julia's past, the more "skeletons" come out of Julia's closet. The closer she comes to the truth, the less sure Julia is that she can handle it. It may come down to a matter of life or death for her.

Nicholson never relents as he takes the reader into Julia Stone's world. There are the feelings of fear, dread, and anxiety throughout this novel. Nicholson's masterly descriptive writing style creates a chilling tale set in a beautiful locale and pulls you into the story. You don't want to miss this one by Nicholson; he demonstrates his ability to branch out into other genres in a tremendous way with this book.

This is a really good read and a change of pace if you are familiar with Mr. Nicholson's horror. However, what is not missing is his high quality writing and ability to connect with the reader.
