    There are things in the darkness, things much worse than the tracks and abandoned pieces of equipment that trip the children up and gash at their feet and legs, things that brush silently past them, touching their faces before disappearing again....

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. Right from the beginning it was interesting. I think the book did a good job of expressing emotions and feelings we all have felt. The narrator did a really good job and I was particularly impressed with his laughter, something a lot of narrators don't do, but in real life we do laugh while we talk sometimes. I thought it brought a little more depth to some of the dialogue.

    Hovern Bog. People live in terror of it - especially the residents of Fenchurch St. Jude, the little village located at its edge. They think of it as a living being. When 2,000-year-old bodies are recovered from the bog, perfectly preserved, it is the discovery of a lifetime for archaeologist David Macauley. But close examination of the corpses reveals a curious fact: all were cruelly, mysteriously murdered, gnawed to death by some unimaginable creature.

    The narrator was great and it was easy to differentiate between which character was speaking. But I thought the characters themselves we're rather irksome. I felt like they dragged the story down a lot.

    Paul Gallo saw the report on the news: a mass murderer leading police to his victims' graves in remote Dread's Hand, Alaska. It's not even a town; more like the bad memory of a town. The same bit of wilderness where his twin brother went missing a year ago. As the bodies are exhumed, Paul travels to Alaska to get closure and put his grief to rest. But the mystery is only beginning. What Paul finds are superstitious locals who talk of the devil stealing souls, and a line of wooden crosses to keep what's in the woods from coming out.

    Story

    I didn't particularly care for any of the characters but I thought the story was good and all of my initial assumptions ended up being wrong. I thought the close of the book came a little quickly and I wish it had ended differently but over all the story made me think and it kept me interested.

    Young Jude Brighton has been missing for three days, and while the search for him is in full swing in the small town of Deer Valley, Oregon, the locals are starting to lose hope. They're well aware that the first 48 hours are critical and after that, the odds usually point to a worst-case scenario. And despite Stevie Clark's youth, he knows that, too; he's seen the cop shows. He knows what each ticking moment may mean for Jude, his cousin and best friend.

    Story

    I finished listening to this book because I like to know how things end. But the entire story left me frustrated, the ending no better. I will say I think the author did a good job of demonstrating how certain mental illnesses can be debilitating or lead to problematic thought processes. Overall I really didn't enjoy the story and there wasn't one enjoyable character.

    Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life. Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for 10 years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood.

    I really liked the story. I think it would make a good movie too. The narrator was not my favorite. She reads with an odd cadence that didn't feel smooth. But the story was interesting enough to stick with despite the narrator.

    Ex-Delta Force Davis Holland, now an agent for Customs and Border Protection, has seen it all. But nothing in his experience has prepared him for what he and the local sheriff find one freezing night in the Minnesota woods. Investigating reports of an illegal border crossing, the two men stumble across a blood-drenched scene of mass murder, barely escaping with their lives... and a single clue to the mayhem: a small wooden chest placed at the heart of the massacre.

    This was actually one of the best books I've listened to in a while. I'm eager to listen to more from this author and narrator. I loved the Native lore brought into present day. The tragedy in true heroism. It was never slow or awkward. And well done for a book that switches from one characters narration to the next, not disorienting at all. Two thumbs up.

    East Antarctica: the coldest, most desolate location on earth. Two-and-a-half miles below the ice cap is Vostok, a 6,000 square mile liquid lake, over 1,000 feet deep, left untouched for more than 15 million years. Now, marine biologist Zachary Wallace and two other scientists aboard a submersible tethered to a laser will journey 13,000 feet beneath the ice into this unexplored realm to discover Mesozoic life-forms long believed extinct - and an object of immense power responsible for the evolution of modern man.

    Story

    I loved the first book in this series. I loved the science and history woven into the story. This book isn't short on science... but it gets way to deep into other theories. It took a surprising turn towards the wild side. I lost interest but persevered, and forced myself to finish the last several chapters. The epilogue was more satisfying than the rest of the story. Not sure if I'll bother with the last book when it comes out.

    Loch Ness holds secrets, ancient and deadly. Does a monster inhabit its depths, or is it just myth? Why, after thousands of reported sightings and dozens of expeditions, is there still no hard evidence? Marine biologist Zachary Wallace knows, but the shock of his near-drowning as a child on Loch Ness have buried all memories of the incident. Now, a near-death experience suffered while on expedition in the Sargasso Sea has caused these long-forgotten memories to resurface.

    Story

    This is a wonderful blend of fact and fiction. Quick to lure me in and held my attention the whole way. The story beautifully incorporates a concise history of Scotland and geology and biology facts. Overall it was as educational as entertaining. It was also well narrated, and was easy for me to discern which character was speaking due in part to the well performed accents.

    I was actually disappointed in this book. I thought it made the characters and ideas of human emotions two dimensional. there seemed to be a lack of depth. it's well written and well performed but seemed to be missing something. however like all this authors works, I had to see it through and know how it ends.
