    "Taylor is the name. John Taylor...My card says I'm a detective, but what I really am is an expert on finding things. It's part of the Gift I was born with as a child of the Nightside - the hidden heart of London where it's always three a.m., where inhuman creatures and otherworldly gods walk side-by-side in the endless darkness of the soul. Assignment: Joanna Barrett hires me to track down her teenage daughter, who decided to forgo the circus and run away to the Nightside."

    Overall

    The first installment is pretty good. It is true that the author says "The Nightside" at least once every 30 seconds but the story was entertaining enough that it did not bother me. My review though, is not so much for the book but of the narration. The one thing I absolutely loved about this audiobook is the use of narrator Marc Vietor. I loved his deadpan delivery for the books. For me, his voice is the embodiment of John Taylor. He has made the series and as an avid reader I refuse to purchase the novels but will instead listen to the audio. It's worth checking out especially if you are looking to be entertained during a car trip or even a daily commute.

  • In the Tall Grass

    In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they've lost one another. The boy's cries are more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.

    Gabe says: "Absolutly disgusting. Emotion provoking. Brilliant"

    What disappointed you about In the Tall Grass?

    I understand it's a short story but I felt the ending was just unsatisfying. It felt rushed and incomplete.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I might check out S.K.'s other short story ... "A Face In the Crowd."


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    He was ok. I had no problem with his performance.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Primarily disappointment, some disgust at the vulgarity. I felt it did not enhance the story or even help the reader experience the horror of the character's circumstances.


    Any additional comments?

    Save you credit/money. This was not worth the $4+ I paid.

    Holly Cavanaugh has one chance to prove to the travel show Weekend Getaway that her struggling B&B is a perfect destination. So she decks the halls, winds the garland, hangs the mistletoe, unwraps the Christmas tree and - finds a body. At that moment, a reporter arrives. And it's none other than her ex, Zach Weldon, looking sexier than ever. Thinking he's with the travel show, she's forced to distract Zach by any means necessary while her maid and grandparents hide the body.

    Cute little story for the holiday season. Nothing spectacular regarding the narration.
