Book Review: Arcadia Falls by Author Ken Stark

 Although this story was written for teens and young adults, I enjoyed every scene. I think horror and suspense readers of all ages will enjoy Arcadia Falls. The author, Ken Stark, has a way of telling this story

that kept me reading to discover what would happen next. 

At the beginning of the novel, I actually forgot I was reading a horror. I was leisurely dropped into a high school where I met the students and one teacher, in particular, the history instructor. Without warning, I found myself in the middle of a horror story.

 Each character is fleshed out in the beginning, and then the landscape. The author did such a wonderful job with the characters and landscape that I felt as if I was watching a movie. At times, I felt as if I was actually in the middle of the scene, watching and experiencing everything. I love books where the author has the ability to invoke all the senses.  

As I read, I wondered many times how this story would resolve. Honestly, I had no clue. The author kept the suspense going, feeding the reader small morsels at a time and holding back the little and big reveals. The story is filled with camaraderie, teamwork, action, adventure, and yes, the quest. I truly enjoyed the history of Arcadia Falls and how it shaped the entire story. I recommend this book to horror and suspense lovers. It is definitely a five-star read.

Read This Before You Fly to Another Destination With Your Laptop


You may or may not know that I am a travel nurse in addition to writing novels. May 10th was stressful. I was headed to work in Boston. I pushed my driver's license through the scanner and pulled my mask down so the TSA employee could compare my license with my face. I moved to the next security checkpoint. I was told to place my computer and cellphone in a separate bin and push everything up to the automatic scanner belt. I did as told. I moved to the next security checkpoint. I stood inside the scanner with my hands above my head and my feet on the footprints. After I was scanned, I went to claim my valuables. My MacBook was gone, STOLEN off the SECURITY BELT after it left the scanner. The theft was captured on TSA video. They have the man's picture. The problem is no information is saved after you pass through the first security checkpoint to add your belongings to the scanner. The police took the picture and searched the airport for the man. They did not find him or my computer. The worst part of the whole ordeal was when the police and TSA said to me, "This happens all the time. People's wallets, purses, cellphones, and, laptops are stolen all the time." They said TSA is not responsible to replace stolen items. I filed a claim anyway. Although they can never replace what I lost on my laptop, I would like them to be held accountable for the loss of the Macbook. We are forced to place our items on these belts. I am sharing my horrible day so the next time you go through the security checkpoint you will never take your eyes off your valuables. Even when you are being scanned, watch the security belt. No one else is keeping your belongings safe. I have Locate my Mac engaged. The computer is offline, it won't locate until the computer is on WiFi. I don't believe I will ever get my Mac back. Share this with your family and friends so they will not lose something they value.
