Thought at first this would be a "Dexter" style of book. Didn't anticipate the supernatural bent. I'd purchased it in one of those $4.95 sales- wouldn't have ever bought it at full price. It was an ok read - probably a little pulpy for my tastes.
Suspenseful, Entertaining, Riveting
No one moment stands out. The entire book held my attention from beginning to end! Can't wait for more.

Disturbing, exciting, psychopathology

Yes, couldn't put it down
Read the first one years ago and had no idea about the twist, now in the second things are more fully explored and John knows what he is up against both within himself and in his town. I'll be jumping on book three as soon as I get my next Audible credit!
Avid reader turned listener.
For the most part, I like this series. I guess what bothers me the most is the element of science-fiction, or whatever you would call the "demons" in the stories. I also feel like John needs to chill out. Obviously you haven't killed any one yet and you're doing a pretty good job of keeping it together. The consistent lament about this is kind of annoying and overdone. As far as the reader, it's pretty good. I would recommend this audiobook to fans of the series. I read the 1st book in print and this book can go both ways easily.
This series was my first audiobook experience. I absolutely loved it. Although it is a YA series, I wish they would have been able to add some mild profanity. But the detail of the gore was good.
I can't wait for more. I really hope this can be adapted into an AMC series or similar. I'd love to see this on TV.
