This story starts off with a a great surprise thriller moment and then weaves the tension among the character development phase with skill and clever plot development. The history lessons are fun, the setting perrfect for a thriller, the characters all work and are developed well. I felt like I understood the motives of all the players and the story kept a tight feel even when building the background for the various players, it never got dull or hard to work through as some books can at that point. The ending works extremely well and actually is a bit of a surprise. I liked this book enough that it had me buying the next in the series as soon as it was over. If you like this genre then this is a highly recommended book.
I really liked the beautiful and accurate descriptions of the landscape, artifacts and tools in the story.
I like Nora of course. I really felt like I knew her.
So many good scenes!
An adventure into the world of evil spirits of the Southwest
The story line
The horse wrangler...but I can't recall his name...
Indiana Jones, watch out!
Better than I expected!
Listening to the captivating Preston/Childs stories is always a treat! I enjoy the twists and turns of the plot of this story.
IF there is one thing that almost made me stop listening to this book, it was the horrible sing-song style of this narrator. The story was compelling enough to force me to continue but unless one likes the sad and resigned style of speaking of Eeyore (a Winnie the Pooh fatalist character), then Scott Brick's "woe is me" kind of vocal inflection will grate on one's nerves and make this audio book less enjoyable!
love books,reading and audio..do yourself a favor and listen or read one ...it DOES make you smarter
.....enjoyed the book. Like other reviews it keeps you interested ....amazing tale of native american occult practices with good characters and gruesome,harrowing,and sometimes disturbing information...a GREAT horror novel.......
Did not read the print version.
The whole of it . It was spell binding
All. excellent .
I shall read it again . Thank you Audoi and the Author .
After spending 17-some hours with this book I wonder how I managed to finish it, given the narrator's breathless, dramatic delivery of every word in the book. The story was interesting enough to overcome the narration. Barely. Someone, please tell Scott Brick that the authors deliberately included mundane details to provide a release from anticipated tension. Books should be read with a variety of moods and a selection of dramatic inflections to give the listener a break.
Only heard the audio version. Scott Brick gave a great performance.
Saw it coming, but entertaining none the less.
A carasmatic performance which he aptly performed a multitude of characters. Bravo.
Great concept, but turning it into a horror novel ruined it for me. Not believeable, sorry.
Wow! Preston / Child / Scott Brick, pretty hard to mess up a book. An awesome story clearly read with a great finish. Must listen!
