THE ARBORIST by P.T. Phronk is a mix of sci-fi and horror, packed with suspense. Told through the POV of Wesley, a father obsessed with the appearance of a strange red tree, readers are sure to feel as frustrated as Wesley's wife and son.
I enjoyed the story until I reached the ending, and realized the author never explains anything about the tree. He uses his main to character to offer some lame excuse about unsolved mysteries, and, honestly, I can't believe Phronk copped out like this.
Not as bad as his short story, Chad, but not nearly as good as Phronk's Strangers at a Funeral.
