A unique allegorical tale in the spirit of C.S. Lewis, with the terrifying excitement and atmospheric chill of a dark thriller, Wickflicker is another amazing story by author Teric Darken that will take readers to the depths of darkness before bringing them up to the light.

Best friends Gat O’Malley and Caleb Jackson get taken on more of a wild ride than they bargained for when, seeking a fresh keg for a semester-end party in a friend’s dark cellar, they run into his strange “uncle” Nicklaus Scra

WICKFLICKER is a no-holds-barred allegory that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way. I was already a fan of Mr. Darken from his books K - I - L - L FM 100: Music to Die For and the sequel, U-TURN KiLLuR, but this one blows those great stories out of the water.

With a sketchy Satan character steaming up every scene he creeps into, and two feckless college kids looking for a good time, I don't think anyone will read this book and not be changed in some way. For me, it was an entertaining ye

I loved this book. Mr. Darken wove a wicked tale with an ending I never saw coming! Great message, great book. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a tale about good and evil, with a storyline that most anyone can relate to. Well Done!

Remember cuddling on the couch on Friday nights watching horror flicks with the one you love? Do you recall the thrill of the chase and the shivers of fear when the evil adversary had the good guy down, certain to end all hope forever? This is Wickflicker. If you have fond memories, long ago or recent, of this type of horrific thriller, you should read Wickflicker. It is the Friday Night Horror Flick, with a twist in perspective. As others have noted here, it is written from a biblical perspecti ...more

An Awesome thriller that is a must read. I wasn't a thriller fan but I am now. I am a definate fan of Teric Darken. Wickflicker is riveting and will keep you reading. You won't be able to put it down.
I love this storyline.....
In a style reminiscent of Charles Williams and old-fashioned Christian horror, author Teric Darken tells thoroughly modern stories of that thoroughly ancient battle for the human soul. A slightly formal, carefully reasoned, first-person narration gives the story immediacy and rapidly creates a very believable college-age protagonist. Rebelling against his father’s fame, taking risks with sex drugs and alcohol but never quite losing his way, young Caleb and his lifelong friend Gat go from experim ...more

Teric Darken has done it again! I have been a fan of his for a while now since Kill FM 100! With Wickflicker, Darken has done what few writers are able to ever do--TOP THEIR LAST offering!

Wickflicker is dark with a barely visible light out of the underground maze of darkness! It tells an awesome account of two young guys' struggle between choosing good and evil. As one discovers, the rewards for choosing evil are so tempting as they feed his fleshly id desires, but veil the harsh consequences th

I read it because I wanted to see why people liked it so much; lots of brainy words but I found it to be attention-grabbing horror…
Dave King
"The Devil and Tom Walker" is a great short story by Washington Irving, the writer who gave us the idea of the headless horseman in another great short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." As I read Wickflicker, I smiled as I remembered the story of Tom Walker and how he grabbed Ol' Scratch's offer to leave his humdrum life to live a life high-on-the-hog. Of course, the deal was he had that power to live a greedy, self-centered life only as long as Scratch allowed him to. Caleb Jackson, the son ...more
