Black House is the second of two novels by Stephen King & Peter Straub. As far as I know, there are no others in this series. I was afraid it would either be too scary or somehow boring – I seem to have read a lot of Stephen King books over the years and thought I might be getting to the point where they all started to be somewhat the same.

Black House Paperback by King Stephen Straub Peter. Black House-Fitting Title. This book was very disappointing. It has been a long time since I have bought a recent book by . So I decided to try the sequel.

Twenty years ago, a boy named Jack Sawyer travelled to a parallel universe called The Territories to save his mother and her Territories "twinner" from a premature and agonizing death that would have brought cataclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly nonexistent hamlet of Tamarack, WI. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories and was compelled to leave the police force when an odd, happenstance event threatened to awaken those memories.When a series of gruesome murders occur in western Wisconsin that are reminiscent of those committed several decades earlier by a real-life madman named Albert Fish, the killer is dubbed "The Fisherman" and Jack's buddy, the local chief of police, begs Jack to help his inexperienced force find him. But is this merely the work of a disturbed individual, or has a mysterious and malignant force been unleashed in this quiet town? What causes Jack's inexplicable waking dreams, if that is what they are, of robins' eggs and red feathers? It's almost as if someone is trying to tell him something. As that message becomes increasingly impossible to ignore, Jack is drawn back to the Territories and to his own hidden past, where he may find the soul-strength to enter a terrifying house at the end of a deserted track of forest, there to encounter the obscene and ferocious evils sheltered within it.

I read the Talisman years ago and re-read it prior to reading this. As with other readers of Black House, I found the first several pages difficult, at times painful to get through. I would actually close my Kindle cover, squeeze my eyes shut, painfully re-open them, knock on the Kindle and say, "Story, you can come out now. I know you're in there somewhere. Please stop torturing me with the mindless tour and bizarre narration." It finally did. I skimmed through the first part and was rewarded. The majority of the book was great and worth getting through the mindless tour and bizarre narration at the beginning.

Black House is the second of two novels by Stephen King & Peter Straub. As far as I know, there are no others in this series. I was afraid it would either be too scary or somehow boring – I seem to have read a lot of Stephen King books over the years and thought I might be getting to the point where they all started to be somewhat the same. But even though there were some unpleasant aspects to it, it was a very interesting story.

For understanding this book, I’m sure it helps if you have read the first book, The Talisman, but if you haven’t, it won’t keep you from enjoying this one. The book refers back to the earlier one several times, but the story stands well on its own. It also references places and events from Stephen King's Dark Tower series and having read those also helps to understand this one. But again, it is not necessary.

The story begins with an overview of the little town of French Landing, Wisconsin. One of the things we find out during our tour of the town is that it has been plagued by a string of murders of children. The police are already working on the first two cases, and there is a third they are not yet sure of. And the murderer is planning the abduction of a fourth child.

Jack Sawyer, the hero of The Talisman, has retired from the LAPD and come to live in French Landing. He is good friends with Dale Gilbertson, the police chief and with Gilbertson’s uncle Henry, a blind man who has several DJ personalities for various radio stations in the area. With these helpers and some others, including a motorcycle gang, one of whose members is the father of the first of the murder victims, Jack must find the murderer and rescue the last little boy to disappear. This journey involves a mysterious Black House that belongs to the murderer and a trip to the mysterious lands that Jack thinks of as The Territories – places that will be familiar to those who have read the Dark Tower series.

The Black House is the sequel to Steven King and Peter Straub's epic masterpiece, "The Talisman." The way these stories are written, the reader can feel the banter band camaraderie between King and Straub jumping off the in the way of descriptions and character building.

Black House is not just the continuation "travelling Jack's journey in The Talisman. It is also a look into the evil that can permeate a small town and the unlikely heroes that emerge from such chaos. This a theme that makes Steven King and Peter Straub such wonderful story teller. Both are master of character development and their utilization of small and, seemingly, bucolic towns as the backdrop for the battle of good and evil is what gives gravitas to this story.

The ingenuity of this book is that this time around there is no quest nor is it just about the now-grown up Jack Sawyer. Black House is as much a story of a small town entrenched in a crisis, the resolution that extends out like the branches of a tree that extends into Steven King's Dark Tower series. Once again, the characters are so well-fleshed out that I could feel deep emotions for each of them and the mysterious Tower that looms in the shadows that leaves a terrifying imagine in the readers imagination. The ending of Black House is both satisfying and tragic, leaving me to want to know what happens next.

An excellent follow-up to "The Talisman." The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that the beginning is very slow. It takes you through the town, introducing you to all the characters, some major and some minor, but because you're not invested in these characters yet, it can be a little confusing. If you stick with it, you'll come upon Jack Sawyer, our protagonist, all grown up and tired of homicide detecting. However, he has one more case to solve....

Well inspiring might not be the right word but "Black House" is an old fashioned story of a quest and good against evil. Good does prevail in the end but only after many losses are endured and wounds inflicted. The characters are wonderful - bigger than life as they say. There is a lot to like about "Black House" and I recommend it with one caveat. Anyone with a low tolerance for blood and gore should probably read the Lord of the Rings trilogy instead.

I have read just about all of Steven King's books, some of them twice (The Stand was my favorite). I read The Talisman when it first came out and really enjoyed it and it did help with understanding some of the references in Black House. I had a hard time getting into this one - the narrator (tour guide?) - in the beginning was distracting and did not really add to the story. While I enjoyed the plot of the story, I found myself skipping over parts that seemed to bog down the reading. And reading through that "German" accent of one of the characters was painful at times. Would also have liked more time back in the Territories. All in all, I did enjoy the read, but not as much as some others.
