    A warning from a stranger. "Nothing you know is real. Your name isn't Shawn Jaffe, you're not an investment broker, and you're not from Ohio." But the stranger is murdered before he can explain. Now Shawn isn't sure who he can trust. Even his own memories are suspect. Someone is watching him, controlling him, using him. To survive, he'll need to find out who and why. But the stakes are much higher than one man. Our humanity is on the line, and on the eighth day, it could be the beginning of the end.

    Story

    This was a truly intriguing and captivating read.

    Shawn Jaffe is an average bloke, or so he thinks anyway! He is in a cafe one morning when someone walks up to him and says “Nothing you know is real. Your name isn't Shawn Jaffe, you're not an investment broker, and you're not from Ohio." Shawn doesn't know what to think and makes to go after him, but the man is murdered in front of him. Shawn is shocked and appalled. Was what he said true? Why is there a niggling doubt in his mind that the man may be right? When Detective Harrison is called upon to solve the murder, Shawn thinks he may have an ally but before they can investigate fully, something happens that will change Shawns perception of life fully!!

    This book was like being on a rollercoaster as there are twists and turns and you never know which way the book will turn next! You are on the edge of your seat the whole way through and left gasping when the next turn does come. I had no idea what the author was going to do next, nor where the book was ultimately going!! It's a book full of suspense, surprises and thrills. I absolutely devoured it.

    Shawn is an interesting character. He struggles to find out whats real and what's being forced on him. He lives a life but which is his true one?? I found myself becoming invested in his journey and anticipating what would happen him!

    In all this was a unique and addicting read. I has such a tough time taking out the ear buds because I didn't want to miss what was happening. It's a fast paced, exciting and gripping read and I so hope we see more of this world.

    I had no issues with James Romick's narration. He read the book well and portrayed the tenseness fine. He knows how to read a suspenseful read and how to keep the reader entertained.

    It's business as usual for Stefan Korzh as he continues to send haunted antiques onto unsuspecting buyers. Despite going into hiding, his desire to punish the universe for his own misfortune remains unchecked. Victor Daniels, now more than ever, is focused on grabbing Korzh by the neck and making him feel the full extent of his pain and suffering. But plans change when a suave ghost from the 1940s leaves a trail of dead bodies in his wake. Hank, a sly and charming specter, uses a mahogany-colored radio to reach his victims....

    Story

    Stefan Korzh has gone into hiding and is trying to stay below the radar, but that doesn't stop him from sending out more haunted items! This time it's a radio that is inhabited by Hank. His choice of victims are lonely, elderly ladies. His seductive voice draws them to him and he viciously kills them. But Stefan makes a mistake, and someone is on his tail! Is this the end?

    I devoured this edition of the series!! It was more action packed and dare I say, even a little darker than the rest. We almost have 3 separate stories tying this all together. First is Stefan and Bontoc. Bontoc is hired by Ariana and her father to find Stefan and kill him. He eventually tracks Stefan down and sees that he has encased himself in an impenetrable fortress, but to Bontoc it's a mild inconvenience. He is one tough cookie and I can't wait to see more from him!!

    Then we have Victor, who is also intent on tracking Stefan down, but before he does, he has to deal with the items Korzh is sending out. His focus is on the radio and he has to call in Shane Ryan to help. I'm always happy to see Shane back and here is no different!! I love that the author crosses over his series. My heart goes out to Victor. He just wants revenge but Stefan keeps sending out things and people are still dying, so he knows his first thing to do, is to stop innocent people from getting hurt, then he can set his sights on taking Stefan down. You can feel the tension is at breaking point with Victor and I'm nervous to see what the author does next!!

    Last but not least, we have Tom. Victor has told him to stay safe while he goes and deals with Hank, but Tom gets information and a picture of Stefan and decides to follow a lead. This could just lead to his death because one of the items Victor and Jeremy had dealt with. is back in play and comes into contact with Tom!!

    So ya, this book was brilliant! I was on the edge of my seat throughout and felt like my heart would break out of my chest! Each of the books in this series feel like they are leading to an spic and explosive end, and I for one, can't wait to see where the author takes it. I've grown to love these characters and grown to love the world the author has created. This author knows how too give the reader chills and this one chilled me to the bone. Mr Ripley can't write fast enough in my opinion.

    Thom Bowers did his best work yet here. If I'm not mistaken, he actually uses a lot more accents in this one! His voice for Ivan Korzh was great and he brought the menacing feeling of the ghosts to life. I felt like he really stepped up his performance here, and it showed!

    Forced to flee The Academy after killing another student, Azerick sets sail to start a new life and a new home from where he can continue to grow in power so that he may avenge his father's murder. However, the fates have not finished with the young sorcerer.

    Story

    After leaving the Academy, Azerick has no choice but to go on the run. He seeks a ship to take him away, but things don't go smoothly at sea and Azerick and the crew are kidnapped and taken to a strange island. There they are forced to either be slaves or fight in an arena. Azerick can fight, but his opponents are getting tougher as it progresses. He doesn't want to kill people, but how can he escape something that can control every aspect of his mind?

    Having enjoyed book 1, I was eager to see what was in store for Azerick, well the author didn't disappoint with this edition! It was a lot darker and more action packed than the first. I flew through this one!!

    The plot was pretty much non stop. Azerick finds a captain that knew his father and allows him to come aboard his ship, but he must pay his way by working. So he helps by using his magic when he can. But the crew are attacked by Minotaurs and taken prisoners. From that moment, the action is non stop.

    Character wise, Azerick has really grown up during this book. His character development was awesome!! He goes through a lot of and it seems that each event leads to him becoming more of what I hoped he would be. I loved that this one was focused on Azerick more than the first. We get to connect with him more and become invested in his story. There are plenty of other characters but Azerick is still my favourite.

    In all, a great second book. I loved everything about it and am really looking forward to the next one!

    As with the first, William Turbett read this well. He is clear and easy to listen to and his tones and cadences were good, but I still found his voices for certain characters too similar to truly identify who was talking at any given time.

    Once upon a time, waiting for the mail was filled with warm anticipation. But the suicide of the local mailman has left the residents of this tiny Arizona town shell-shocked. Nothing this bad has ever happened here. And now, there's a new mail carrier in town, one who's delivering lethal letters stuffed with icy fear. Nothing - not even the most outstanding citizens or the most secret weaknesses - is safe from the sinister power of this malicious mailman....

    Story

    For one small American town, news that their mailman has committed suicide comes as a massive shock! Everyone knew him and loved him. The position of mailman doesn't stay vacant for long though, as a man mysteriously takes up the post. But this mailman seems....weird, he gives everyone the creeps and just seems off. One family in particular find him strange and with little pieces of the puzzle falling into place, Doug finds himself sure that this mailman isn't what he seems.

    This book was very slow to get going, yet it wasn't boring. Personally, I do think that some of the book could have been cut and it would have speeded things up, but I also feel like it was all necessary to create the atmosphere needed for the story!! The tension is building and building with each page until you eventually get to the end, which is what I liked.

    I loved the idea behind the story. We all need a mailman, maybe not as much as we used to, but they are still needed. The mailman might be privy to certain things, but what if the mailman knew everything? What if he used that to pit everyone against each other and fed on the fear and hatred? What if even the sound of the mailmans car had you in fear? Well, this is what the author did. He brought to life, the creepiest mailman ever!!

    In all, this was a good read, though I did find the ending a little disappointing! Not what I was hoping. Still though, I enjoyed the read and loved the old school horror feel to the book. I will check out more from the author, though I need to be in the mood for a book with a lot of details!

    David Stifel read this really well. His tone and cadences brought the characters to life and he captured the evil mailman perfectly.

A serious car accident leaves Charlie comatose, and when he comes to, he suffers from visions of unspeakable horror that keep him awake at night. He soon discovers that when he touches people, he can sense their evil and see their greatest evils. Some crimes are too terrible to describe. Some crimes are too terrible to go unanswered.

    Story

    When Charlie was driving home one icy night, he lost control and crashed. 2 months later he wakes to find that not only did he lose 2 months, but he seems to have acquired a new....skill. When he touches someone he can see and feel the evil inside of them. If they have sinned, or are planning on sinning, he is forced to stop them. His first taste of it is from his nurse, when he touched her, he saw her killing patients. He feels like God is telling him to stop the evil before it's too late.

    This book was so good! My heart broke for Charlie. He is a nice boy but when he has his accident, he is turned into a killer. But it doesn't feel like it's his fault. He thinks it's God that is telling him what to do and he feels like he has no choice but to stop the evil before they take an innocent life. The book may be short, but it was a powerful story and held my attention till the end.

    This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last. It's a relatively short book, but it was so well written that it didn't feel short, and the fact that the author made me feel so many emotions while reading it just proved to me that I need to read more by him.

    I've listened to a lot of books narrated by Rick Gregory and he always does a great job. I thoroughly enjoyed his performance here and he brought the atmosphere to life. I only had one complaint here and that's that he messed up on one or two of the male characters during the story. One man started out with an accent during a scene and by the end of it had lost it. Now it was subtle and didn't really take away from the overall narration, but I did notice it!

    In the rural town of Colby, Connecticut, a freak snowstorm happens in May. That in itself is weird enough, but when you add in what seems to be ritualistic killings and other.....things happening, it's put Jack Glazier on edge. Along with his other officer Reece Teagan, they call in an occult expert Kathy Ryan to help with the investigations.

    This book was so much better than I hoped!! I had read some great and not so great reviews on it, and went in with no expectations at all, and I devoured it!! The absolute best thing about this is the creepy atmosphere the whole way through. I felt on edge while reading, and that to me is the sign of a great thriller/horror read!

    The plot wasn't really fast paced, but it held steady and ramped up the tension with each chapter. I was drawn in right from the start and it held my attention till the end. I loved the fact that it's set during a blizzard because that always adds tension, but this author added in some weird ass flesh eating monsters, and it made for awesome reading.

    The characters weren't as fleshed out as I like, but I actually didn't mind. They were charismatic enough to make it easy to like all of them. I usually can easily pick a favourite character when I read a book, but not here, I liked them all!!!

    In all, this book was seriously good. I started the book too late and didn't want to put it down, but my eyes were starting to close so I had to! I picked it up the next day and devoured it. I will definitely have to check out more from this author.

    Chris Abell was easy to listen to and had plenty of tones and voices for the characters, and I do have to say that his Irish accent was really good, the problem I had with him was that he didn't bring the atmosphere to life completely. I wanted more tenseness from him, especially when the creatures were involved! Other than that it was an awesome performance.

    When Sabrina stumbles upon a dead body in the alley beside her shop, her life is turned upside down. She feels like the case could go cold and she is determined that the town won't have another unsolved case. Her sister went missing 10 years ago and it remains unsolved, and so Sabrina tries to find out who the killer is.

    I very very rarely give a book 1 star, I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've rated a book so low, but this book was really bad. I wanted to put it aside numerous times, but because it was a review book, and relatively short, I kept going. I kept hoping it would get better, but unfortunately it didn't!!

    I didn't like Sabrina, at all. She had no redeemable qualities in my eyes!! She was extremely pushy and rude and I thought the way she handled things was awful. She had no respect for anyones privacy, and I don't care if they were "suspects" in her mind, people were trying to grieve and she kept pushing.

    I found the plot to be a tad ridiculous! I'm sorry, but her "boyfriend" (the author way overused this term) is a detective and was frustrated that the case was going cold after only a day or two. I get that investigating cases if frustrating, but I really don't think a detective would be that dejected after such a short time!! It felt unrealistic and silly. Plus, would he really tell his girlfriend so much about an active case??

    In all, this was definitely not for me. I enjoy a good cozy mystery, but this one was pretty bad! I won't be continuing with the series.

    Lainie Pahos seems to be a fairly new narrator and it definitely showed. She messed up on the characters voices sometimes and didn't really have the right inflections at the right times. Plus there were two pretty bad mistakes made during the recording. She cleared her throat and repeated herself during the performance! Both glaring mistakes and both of which should have been caught and fixed before production!

    Story

    When Jack Amato, a newly graduated reporter who writes the obituaries for his local paper, witnesses a meteor falling to earth, he thinks no more about it. That is until he realises that he hasn't had to write a single obituary since that night, not one! Thinking this is strange, he digs deeper and calls hospitals in the vicinity. He narrows it down to about a 10 mile radius that had no natural death occur since that night. He puts two and two together and gets meteor!! The meteor in question was moved and Jack finds that the route the meteor took, no natural death occurred in those places either. This is Jack's big chance and he breaks the story. It changes everyone's life forever!!!

    I was drawn to this book because of the cover and the description, and I eagerly dived in when I got my copy. I have to say that I'm so bummed it didn't live up to my hopes!! I did enjoy it for the most part, but I just felt it was bogged down by some unnecessary things.

    I loved the idea of the plot. A meteor falls to earth and all natural death stops. I just felt that the author didn't give us enough information on the how. The science was missing and I think if we had had more of a sense of what the meteor actually did, it would have been so much better. I also felt like the execution of the plot was lacking. I mean, once the story breaks, everyone wants exposure to the meteor and the government comply. That didn't work for me, because in my mind, I feel like the meteor would have been squirreled away by the government for testing and the public wouldn't have seen it again, or not as easy anyway.

    Plus, Jack "breaks" the news that now that natural death has stopped, overpopulation is a real concern. Well, I mean, ya!! That goes without saying. There is also so much more I want to say about parts of the plot that annoyed me a little, but I can't because they are pretty big spoilers!! Suffice it to say, things happen about three quarters of the way through and people have to turn to doing something huge to survive, and there was no uproar about it at all!! There were a lot of things that the government did that got little to no reaction and it just felt unrealistic.

    Now, it's not all negative, I did enjoy parts of it!! I liked that the author forwarded the time line of the story, I liked that we get to see 10 years after the meteor hit. I found the overall story compelling in a weird way, because even though I wanted to put this aside plenty of times, I was intrigued enough to keep reading!!

    In all, an ok read. Very much hit or miss and I think most people will either like it or hate it!

    This seems to be Joseph Kidawskis first book as a narrator and it showed. He did have a few tones and voices for the characters, but the overall enthusiasm for the book was lacking. He didn't capture the atmosphere of the story enough to truly bring it to life. I also found the quality of the production wasn't as clear as it should be.

    Story

    After losing their son in an accident two years ago, Peter Martell and his wife Sylvia are devastated to learn that they might never be able to have another child. Peter has been having strange dreams and remembers the name Gilchrist from them. Out driving one day, he sees a sign for a place called Gilchrist and goes to investigate. Whilst there, he decides that a nice stay in a lake house will hopefully help his marriage and rents a cabin. Once there strange things start happening and Peters life is about to change forever!

    This was a slow burner. We start off by getting to know Peter and Sylvia, which I really liked because it made them easier to like and connect with. Then we see some of the characters of Gilchrist and get to know them too. We get to see that this place isn't what we thought it was and that something evil is in town! I liked that the characters are all fleshed out and we get a sense of who they are.

    The plot was slow to start too, but right from the start, we get a sense that something is coming and it makes the anticipation climb. There are some twists and turns that I enjoyed too. I also enjoyed the setting of the small town and that it was set in the 60's, it made it feel like the old school horror books.

    In all, this was a good read. At nearly 17 hours, it's quite long, but it didn't feel it. It took me three days to listen to, though I wanted to listen to it quicker because I wanted to see what was happening. An enjoyable listen and I'll have to check out more from this author.

    Kevin Clay did a great job with this. He was clear and concise and had tones for each of the characters, the only reason it wasn't a five start from me was because I felt like he needed to work a bit on his inflections and cadences to bring the creepy atmosphere to life fully!!

    Story

    The blurb pretty much sums this up better than I could!!..."Myers is a Relic. Cast out of society by a computer program that's far more efficient at managing and regulating human life than any human ever could be.

    The System is running everyone's life. It's quickly becoming smarter than humans, and it no longer has any need for leaders like Myers. There's a technological singularity coming, and only Myers knows how to stop it.

    The problem? He doesn't remember anything from the past fifteen years.

    And now he's being hunted..."

    This book surprised the heck out of me. I love a good techno thriller but when you add in a post apoc setting, I didn't think it would work, but it does!! I flew through this and absolutely loved it!

    The plot was equal parts fascinating as it was extremely scary! Could you imagine a world where an A.I becomes smarter than humans and holds all the power?? This is the world at the moment, and boy was it terrifying. You can't hide from the all seeing eye ;)

    Myers is a great character. He wakes up with no memories. He is being hunted and has no clue why. Slowly things start to break through his mind and he starts to realise some important things...like he is probably the only human alive that can stop what is happening. He had a hand in creating this AI, but with his memories gone, how can he? Seeing Myers struggle to remember who he was and slowly learning about him and his life was thrilling. We slowly see the pieces start to come together and it was awesome!!

    In all, this was such a great read. It was entertaining, unique and engaging. I loved the world the author created and was so happy I gave this book a chance. There was so much happening throughout the story that I found it hard to put down. It's over 15hrs long but I listened to it in just a few days!!

    David S. Dear read this well. He had plenty and tones and voices for the different characters and gave a good performance. I felt like he needed to work on his inflections more though to truly bring this to life.

    Following his successful experiment of extracting DNA to clone the image upon the Shroud of Turin, Dr. Marcus Leon faces a world torn asunder. The clone takes the name Devante and assumes a role of great power. His presence and deception bring about biblical-like destruction upon the Earth. While Devante seems unstoppable, only one person, his creator, Marcus Leon, holds the key to ending it all. But can Marcus survive not only the forces of nature, but the forces of Devante and build the army needed before it’s too late?

    Story

    Having loved book 1, I eagerly dived into this when I got it. Moving on from book 1 and the birth of the Antichrist, Devante, things are really starting to heat up. People are flocking to believe Devante and after he shows some of his power, they have no choice but to comply with him or die! Meanwhile Marcus and Reggie have their own hands full when they get a present from God.

    As I said, I loved book 1 and couldn't wait to start this one, and boy was I happy with it!! The plot is really starting to come together. Things are about to come to a head and there seems to only be a handful of people who can stop it, namely Marcus, since he created Devante, and Reggie, who is about to become a kick ass warrior! Devante is making his army and any one who opposes him is dead!! The plot was fast paced and intense.

    In all, this was a great second book. I felt my anticipation rising as the plot progressed and I know that the final book will be epic. I can't wait to see what happens next.

    Rick Gregory read this really well. His tones and cadences were great and helped create the atmosphere needed for this book. He gave each of the characters their own personality and was able to bring them to life. I really like his portrayal of Devante!!

    I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts
