The Possession Kindle Edition
A famed horror author is on the verge of his magnum opus—a labyrinthine cryptogram that details the end of days.
“As much as I like Dean Koontz and Stephen King, none of them build such nice twists and turns into their plots.” ~ William Greenleaf
“I honestly feel that you’re a gifted writer.” ~ Michael Garrett (Credited as Stephen King’s First Editor)
“A.K. Kuykendall blurs the lines between fact and fiction to conjure a true nightmare.” ~ Shane KP O’Neill, Author of “The Lucifer Agenda” Series
When Gregory Stillingsworth buys an antique doll in India, the bestselling horror novelist doesn’t haggle over the steep price. He simply must have the beautiful, enchanting doll. Only months later, when it is far too late, does he realize that he’s merely the latest in a long line of victims to become possessed by Christie, a pernicious tool of Satan.
As the battle lines between the angels of light and darkness are drawn, Gregory, his wife Jamie, and their unborn child become trapped in an ancient war that has no beginning and no end, a conflict that turns time inside out and reason on its head.
EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS a terrifying thriller that’s perfect for fans of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and any spine-chilling tales of horror. This first book kicks off the “Writer’s Block” trilogy, which explores the age-old War of Angels. Better leave a light on... or three or ten... for this one. [DRM-Free]

About the Author
SENIOR EDITOR: Lane Diamond has over 170 published books to his editing credit, including many multiple award-winners, across many genres and styles.
ASSISTANT EDITOR: EDITOR: Growing up I was the kid who would get into trouble for reading in class. My family was the one at the restaurant with noses buried in books. It was only natural that I would seek some way to make books a part of my career path. I read anything except for traditional westerns, and have a soft spot for historical fiction and YA. I tend to gravitate towards genre fiction (particularly science fiction, fantasy, horror, action/adventure and all of the implied subgenres) and am a huge fan of comics and graphic novels. When I'm not reading or writing, I'm probably playing video games with my friends online. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

"The Possession" by A.K. Kuykendall is the best horror story, and by extension, the best horror author I have ever read — hands down. Yes, that includes a long list of horror masters including Poe, Stoker, Koontz, Laymon, and the King.
I realize that's a huge assertion, but will prove defensible as I am not the first, nor will I be the last, to make that claim. This is not a run-of-the-mill, cut and slash smorgasbord of supernatural or physical violence. It is not merely the tale of a war between the religious characters God and Satan acted upon the pawns, Gregory and Jamie. No, "The Possession" is book one in a finely tuned, intricately plotted trilogy that encompasses the psychology of a mind possessed, the ages old stories of God and Satan, and the impacts both have on the lives of everyday humans. Kuykendall is a master storyteller. His writing style, unique perspectives, and belief defying imagination are superbly tuned to carry out what may be his chosen second career or perhaps fated?
"The Possession" details the humanity and the individual ordeals of characters trying to make sense of the bizarre actions surrounding an otherwise well respected, internationally acclaimed author, and loving husband. It describes the effects of superstition and religion on the psychological evolution of humanity while, in the tradition of great horror stories, makes you want to turn on the lights, lock the doors and windows, and huddle in a corner with a weapon and a crucifix (even if you're not religious). "The Possession" follows a short story I read and reviewed about the horrors and sexual abuse of young boys behind the doors of the Catholic Church ("The Confessional"). The combination of the two provided all I needed to put A.K. Kuykendall at the top of my favorite author list.
