    In 1925, earthquakes and a rising sea level left Lower Manhattan submerged under more than 30 feet of water, so that its residents began to call it the Drowning City. Those unwilling to abandon their homes created a new life on streets turned to canals and in buildings whose first three stories were underwater. Fifty years have passed since then, and the Drowning City is full of scavengers and water rats, poor people trying to eke out an existence, and those too proud or stubborn to be defeated by circumstance.

    Story

    Written by the author who brought Hell Boy to life, Joe Golem is a great steampunk-ish novel about a golem, who happens to be a detective.
    It's not War and Peace, but a YA story with engaging characters. Easy listening.
    Give it a try!!

    In a small Arizona town, a man counts his blessings: a loving wife, two teenage daughters, and a job that allows him to work at home. Then "The Store" announces plans to open a local outlet, which will surely finish off the small downtown shops. His concerns grow when "The Store's" builders ignore all the town's zoning laws during its construction. Then dead animals are found on "The Store's" grounds. Inside, customers are hounded by obnoxious sales people, and strange products appear on the shelves.

    Well developed characters, excellent pace, a nice overall Horror Story from start to finish. There were times where I had to turn audible's off because I felt so much dread for the town of juniper and the characters. when a story can impact you that much, that is a sign of a successful story.
    Well done! I can't wait to read another one of his books :)

    In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: They become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place.... The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease.

    Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life. But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow's best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday.

    After a bizarre and disturbing incident at the funeral of matriarch Marian Savage, the McCray and Savage families look forward to a restful and relaxing summer at Beldame, on Alabama's Gulf Coast, where three Victorian houses loom over the shimmering beach. Two of the houses are habitable, while the third is slowly and mysteriously being buried beneath an enormous dune of blindingly white sand. But though long uninhabited, the third house is not empty. Inside, something deadly lies in wait.

To her parents' despair, the doctors are unable to stop Marjorie's descent into madness.

Father Wanderly suggests an exorcism; he believes the vulnerable teenager is the victim of demonic possession.

    Story

    One of the best psychological stories that I've so far this year! !

    Told from the Viewpoint of a 23 your old woman who flashes back to when she was 8 years old. 8yr old Merry's beloved older sister Marjorie begins to act strangely. her mother is convinced she's has had a psychological break, but her father's convinced that she's possessed. The author does an excellent job at alluding to both so you as a reader we'll never know for sure what really happened to Marjorie. it scared the hell out of me! according to reviews even Stephen King said this books scared him !

    unlike so many other stories that feel the need to spoon-feed everything to the reader, this right or trust the reader's intelligence and lets the story truly unfold. excellent narration. it's the first offer I've loved since King and Straub. Well done!

Now, he's trapped in his own personal hell, his mind and body inhabited by the soul of Cucuy, a fearsome, 500-year-old Aztec priest and major crime kingpin determined to bring about hell on earth. Estranged from his daughter, Sherry, and now his own body, Galvan's every moment is a battle to keep the evil priest at bay.

    All the stories in this collection from Stephen King are related to the Vietnam War. King fans will recognize echoes of The Dark Tower series in the collection's first story, "Low Men in Yellow Coats." As the characters develop over the next four stories, King's version of the Vietnam War becomes one of his most frightening tales ever.

    Story

    Not the typical King supernatural story but it gives a nod to the Dark Tower series and that was great. This story is a tapestry that surrounds 3 characters from age 10-50. William Hurt is an amazing narrator. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5, is because of the annoying music. Every time I really got into the story, I'd be interrupted by blasting music. GET RID OF IT!!! It doesn't enhance the story at all.
