Publisher's Summary

Kristy Duncan has a secret - a burning secret.

Eighteen-year-old Kristy has a happy life with her foster parents and close friends at school, but she is not safe from the horrors of her past. She can't remember her birth mother or receiving the severe burns across her chest, but as her nightmares grow worse, her trauma-induced amnesia begins to clear, and she slowly remembers the apocalyptic suicide cult deep in the Everglades. As Kristy's friends and acquaintances begin to meet strange and horrible deaths by fire, Kristy learns that the homicidal cult leader has returned - from beyond the grave - to claim his last remaining child.

    "Horrible narrator"

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

    The biggest thing that stood out about this audiobook was how absolutely horrible narrator is. 30 seconds and I was grimacing at the thought of having to listen to a whole two hours of that. His voice is grating and he enunciates words so emphatically it's distracting. I tried to pay attention to the audiobook itself, and the story did seem to be nice and creepy. But the narrator was so distracting it was very hard to pay attention. I think that this was probably a very good book. And one that I would have much preferred to have actually read rather than listen to. In the end I could not get past the narrator.

    Story
    "Burn Baby Burn!"
    Where does Cypress Creek rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is by far the best horror book I have listened to so far, and I am a big horror genre fan. This is well written with compelling characters, and it is scary. Very scary. I was hesitant to light candles for several weeks after reading this story.


    What other book might you compare Cypress Creek to and why?

    I don't think there is a book you can compare it to. It has supernatural, religious, and horror elements but in a unique mix. The scenes are graphic, gritty and realistic. You can smell the smoke. You can taste the fear.


    What does Adam Zens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing a story is always more terrifying than reading it. Audio books bring back the lost art of story telling. Listening to this story is like sitting around the campfire listening to a master story teller tell a scary tale. Adam Zens' voice is a perfect match for the story. It feels like an authentic part of the story--the story in living color or rather sound.


    Who was the most memorable character of Cypress Creek and why?

    I'd say it is a toss up between the Pastor--a charismatic yet sinister zealot and Mr. Walker--a tortured brooding soul.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an exceptional book. It you enjoy the horror genre, you will love this book. Obviously, not for children. You'd scare them to death. Probably best for the older teen or adult.

    "Cypress Creek"

    This may have been an ok story,but the narrator ruined it with run on sentences,chapters and non appropriate inflections for the situation.The story itself is interesting,yet not well enough explained.
    I was gifted this book free for an honest review.

    "the performance blew this for me, it was awful"

    Cypress Creek.

    I really wanted to like this book, but sadly I did not.
    Arg, the narrator was awful. I mean awful. he was very monotone. and he reminded me of a robot. Or when you have your Mac read to you. Just awful. He was a slow reader. He made it VERY hard to get into and listen to. I sped up the voice a little bit, and it made it a little bit better. ( i have never had to do that before)

    As for the story: it seemed very predictable, and just flat. the idea of the story was great. i feel it really could of been better and deeper and not so flat. It jumps around a lot and was even a little confusing at some points. them boom people started dying. like when her parents died “There was a flame.” thats all it would say, it didn’t even say anything about her mom seeing the flame… them boom you find out in the next chapter that the flame killed her parents.. no details, no nothing! what the heck? I need my imagination fed, details, a painted picture, somewhere for my mind to go and be able to feel what is happening. This book did not do that.

    Maybe it was just the poor narrator that made me feel this way. I am not sure. so I gave the story 3 stars.


    I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast or Audio Boom..

    "Not a good narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. The story was well-written and to the point. The plot was interesting and not too easy to guess.


    What didn’t you like about Adam Zens’s performance?

    The narrator sounds like a 2nd grader sounding out words and being sure to enunciate clearly, but the words do not flow and sound like a story. Very choppy and annoying. It was very distracting from a good story. If it had been longer, I would not have been able to finish it. As it was, I had to try to handle it to stick it out.

    Story
    "Early 80's horror flick style"

    The premise was good. The background was good. The characters were good. The flow was horrible, there were no transitions. I don't know if it's the way it was written or the way it was read. The narrator just drones on with no pauses going from scene to seen past to present. Very monotone. Barely any difference to the voices of the characters. It was a painful
    Listen. I really liked the concept but the delivery was lacking. Random sex scenes just tossed in as if there was a recipe checklist going ok sex scene check. There is a good spark there. I would really have liked to see it developed and a narrator that could lend the depth needed for the character development. Will try the author again if the story has a different narrator. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Needed a different narrator"
    What disappointed you about Cypress Creek?

    The narrator


    Would you be willing to try another one of Adam Zens’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    To be honest, I really didn't pay too much attention to the book. The narrator was monotone. It made it difficult for me to get into the story. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
