A horrifying mixture of The Mist and Slenderman, 314 kept me scared until I'd finished the book. I couldn't bring myself to look out of my window because of the unexplainable fear that A.R. Wise had created. I fought chills, goosebumps, and hair raising on the back of my neck while reading this book, unable to put it down.
The characters were well envisioned, natural in their fears and convictions. Their interactions only added to the horror of what was happening in the plot.
With the book switching between present time and flashbacks to the terrifying history of Widowsfield, I found myself asking questions that I can only really know if I continue on in the series.
As a lover of all genres, I recommend this book to anyone that loves a good scare. Up there with Stephen King, this Author definitely deserves a place in any bookshelf.
Alma Harper has been trying to forget what happened in Widowsfield 16 years ago. She has a good life as a music teacher now, and might rekindle her relationship with her one true love. However, the number 314 haunts her, and threatens to bring her back to the day that her brother disappeared. When a reporter shows up, just days before March 14th, Alma realizes that her past is coming back to haunt her. What happened on March 14th, at 3:14, 16 years ago? No one but The Skeleton Man can remember.
