Publisher's Summary

WELCOME TO SAFE HAVEN, POPULATION 907...

Nestled in the woods of Wisconsin, Safe Haven is miles from everything. With one road in and out, this is a town so peaceful it has never needed a full-time police force. Until now...

A helicopter has crashed on the outskirts of town and something terrible has been unleashed. A classified secret weapon programmed to kill anything that stands in its way. Now it's headed for the nearest lights to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate.

Soon all phone lines are dead and the road is blocked. Safe Haven's only chance for survival rests on the shoulders of an aging county sheriff. And as the body count rises, the sheriff realizes something even more terrifying—maybe death hasn't come to his little town by accident...

WELCOME TO SAFE HAVEN, POPULATION 907... 906... 905...

    "Afraid"
    Any additional comments?

    Not one of my favorites but good enough not to be bad. The military lose a group of chemically enhanced killers, who terrorize a small town in Wisconsin.

    Story
    "Dull and Unoriginal"

    The narrative is stilted, characters, particularly the antagonists, uninteresting and the lukewarm plot leaves much to be desired.
    Coupled with an overly dramatic narrator what you got here is an incredibly regretful purchase.

    "Not a bad read"

    Interesting read/listen I enjoyed the story line and the characters with the follow thru of what they did and where they ended up at the end of the book. The military side of it was most interesting and the killers themselves were interesting as well. The who's and why's proved to be capturing and I'd recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a government conspiracy type story.

    Story
    "Torture and Mass Murder"

    I'm torn somewhat about this book. It consists of mostly graphic depictions of torture and mass murder, but like a train wreck it's hard to look away. I found all of it distasteful, but the story did keep moving and the narration was perfect. I suppose my only other complaint is that it had a few places where it could have broken away from the tired old formulas they use to write stories that make each one identical to the last, and try something new. Instead they went with the old "our government is secretly evil" story.

    "GREAT BOOK"
    What made the experience of listening to Afraid the most enjoyable?

    It kept me riveted. The story line is plausable when you hear bits and pieces of information the government has kept hidden for "national security"


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Afraid?

    The final round up od escape.


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No But I will

    I enjoy all kinds of books, but most recently I have been listening to thrillers, horror, history and documentary titles. Audible is a great way to get to 'read' books when you don't have the time to actually sit down with a paper book and it offers an affordable alternative (especially in NZ where books are an extremely expensive luxury) to discover new writers.

    Story
    "A Well Narrated and Fast Paced Novel"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend the book to horror fans, although others might find the graphic violence gratuitous and excessive, especially at the beginning. So be warned. I found the book to be addictive listening and was disappointed when I finally got to the end. At the start, the series of gruesome events was a bit depressing. However the well developed characters and fast paced events quickly take over to draw the reader in and keep you listening. Some unexpected twists in the plot add to the interest.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Afraid?

    What happens to the couple at the beginning of the book is memorable because it is so graphic and brutal.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where one of the women fights off one of the bad guys and gets away, when it looks certain that she will be killed. This is because it marks the start of people fighting back rather than just being slaughtered.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. The scene with the dog and the monkey.


    Any additional comments?

    A great narrator who definitely kept the fast pace of the novel going. I have already bought another title by this author and am looking forward to listening to it.

    "Fast paced."

    This book moves along at a cracking pace. Never a dull moment, grips you every chapter.

    Phil Gigante has done an excellent narration combined with sounds and voices.

    If you loved the Jack Daniel's book as I did you will really enjoy this.
