There is a devil...

Five fifth grade boys attending Catholic school encounter an ancient evil. Evil that has moved through time, and walks freely. Their world of friendship, adventure and freedom is lost when a club initiation in an abandoned house goes horribly wrong. As they try to move on with their lives into adulthood, each of them has to live with the consequences of that night. They must each learn to face the truth, that for them, evil really does exist.

Braile House brings multiple story lines together in an epic clash of good and evil, of hate and love; a tale of supernatural terror.

Excerpts from reader reviews in Amazon and Goodreads.

  • "I highly recommend this book to all of you who wish to read something beyond what has become a ghost story by today’s standards. This book is frightening, exciting, and will keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s hard to put down..."

  • "Excellent book. Kind of combination of Steven King and Dean Koontz! Could not put it down. Lots of twists and turns,. Great character development. Great description of old Albuquerque. Shamans, kivas, Anasazi culture.
    Typical fears of young elementary school boys in the fifties combined with terror of old Indian legends/ fears of supernatural. Much better than Stand by Me!"

  • "Had a few nightmares with this book."

  • "Excellent novel. Greatest character development. Really enjoyed the Shaman/ Anasazi Indian development to the storyline! The author is brilliant and has a knack for character development and suspense!"

  • "The characters were very well developed...I became friends with each of the boys, and eventually, the men they became."

  • "Give this one a chance...Braile House is a very good story! Took me a little time to get into this one, but you will find yourself invested in the characters and story. Great villain in this one, as well!"

  • "This book is so worth your time!!! One of the best I have ever read and that speaks volumes. Download."

  • "Wow...this book keeps you on the edge of your seat. Very well written, with very disturbing plot. If you are a horror story book reader, then you have to read this!"

  • “Braile House is a seriously good horror story. Author James Wayne King...created a wonderfully scary story. He intertwined several characters story lines into one epic tale of supernatural terror. Of course the story is far from a one-dimensional horror story. King weaves in just the right amount of humor, action, adventure, romance, and yes, sex, to keep the reader engaged and not just stuck in the overall darkness of the story.
    Covering a span of some 20 years, Braile House shows evils intrusion into the lives of several otherwise disconnected people. The dark mood is carried and intensified throughout. Even in the "lighter" parts of the story, the reader knows the evil is not far away.
    The only down side for me is that, at times, the story is a little disjointed. Perhaps it is just me, but occasionally I had difficulty knowing which character was talking. I sometimes had to read several sentences to know whose story line I was in. This is a minor criticism as it didn't happen that often, but for me it did happen. This is the only reason I did not give the fifth star.
    I recommend Braile House to any lover of a good scary story. It held my interest and I'm guessing it will hold yours.”

  • "This really is one of the best books I've read this year. The pacing was great, characters were well developed, and scenes throughout were easy to visualize due to the great descriptions. The jumping around through time and different character viewpoints all leading up to the final battle at the end was also very well done.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a great horror mystery story!"
