    "Narrator was great, but jumpy narrative dinged it"

    Note: In exchange for an unbiased review, the author, publisher, and/or narrator were kind enough to provide an audio version of this book at no charge via AudiobookBoom.

    The narrator did a great job on this. As a new narrator myself, I'm always listening out for how others perform their craft in the hopes that I can pick up something to help me better myself as well. No real complaints here with regard to the narration.

    The writing, however, bothered me a little. The story jumped around too much - with the shifts in time jarring to the point that it affected the overall enjoyment of the book. Also, sometimes it was confusing as to what was happening or where it was happening. And the characters didn't feel very fleshed out or even compelling. I understand this was the second book in a series, but I think it was more of a standalone. If I'm mistaken, then perhaps this could partially explain some of the issues I had with the book. But not all of them.

    At any rate, the premise was interesting and it certainly had some elements I generally like in a story. But unfortunately, it didn't do an effective job of bringing all those elements together for me.

    Story
    "Great Follow-Up to Adam's Cross"

    E.M.G. Wixley provides an excellent follow-up to Adam's Cross. The author continues to provide many twists and turns as well as plot changes that keep you on the edge of your seat. As in book 1, Adam's Cross, the characters are very well written and developed. E.M.G. Wixley keeps the horror coming and manages to create an excellent story line.

    Nigel Peever did an great job with his performance of this book. I love his British Accent which made it that much more enjoyable for me. He performs each character brilliantly and provides great tone, pace, inflection and emotion that keep you engaged throughout the entire book.

    Story
    "Wickedly Weird!"

    In this book the reader/listener meets Kane an ex-military man. He meets a young lady Poppy whom he helps. She reminds him of his sister who disappeared. He and Poppy grow close. Kane suffers from delusions and occasionally gets violent. Poppy sticks with him and they are an interesting couple between his PTSD and her own secrets. Neither one of them is really fit to work and face society.
    Like the first book in the series there’s plenty of material to twist the mind and the plot takes many turns. Strange happenings and action are woven into the story taking this volume to the next level. I listened to book 1 first but the way this book is written it’s not necessary to read it first, although, I advise it because Adam’s story is revealed and he’s important in book 2 as well. This story is for readers/listeners who enjoy horror and can stomach gory scenes. It’s difficult to find an author who can balance gore and great story. E.M.G Wixley is a pro at it.
    Nigel Peever narrates this volume. It took me some time to get used to his voice, mostly because of the British accent. Accents always take me awhile and I prefer listening without them. That said I enjoyed the sounds effects he adds to intensify the story and his pacing is excellent. It’s not often a narrator adds all the extras he did. Well done!

    Story
    "The horror continues.."

    We follow Kane, who suffers from PTSD and drinks a lot of alcohol. He meets Poppy who he's determined to help and she also reminds him of his missing sister. Once again we're in a supernatural world of horrors.

    It was hard for me to keep my focus on this story and it jumped around a lot with me drifting in and out of my mind while listening to this audiobook. If I should continue this series, I'd prefer to read it.

    The narrator Nigel Peever was ok. I liked that he was British, as it is a British story, but he couldn't keep my attention for long. He didn't always sound as he knew what was coming and shifted a lot in his pace. Furthermore, he didn't really have the voice I imagined for a character like Kane.

    *This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.

    "Interesting story"

    My review.

    First I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
    When I got the book I misunderstood the genre. I thought it was a military book it turn out to be about witches from another world and people protecting them and people trying to wipe them out.

    So even though this was not my usual type of book I listened. The writing was very good. Clear descriptions of the places and the situations the people found themselves in.
    There were three different groups which ended up crossing paths and a battle was won but the war continues.

    I think that if you are interested in this type of book, you would enjoy it immensely. Good strong characters, good world building, and an interest in reading the next one. Thank you for the book

    "Deep"
    What made the experience of listening to Kane's Cross the most enjoyable?

    This is a fairly decent somewhat deep story with great characters, Kane, Poppy and Oliver. The story is based on PTSD, good witch and the church really good last quarter of the book. The narration was exceptional. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. Thank you.

    "Another book brought to life by Nigel"

    Nigel Peever once again brings a story to life with his engaging reading. The characters are vivid in the listener's mind through his interpretation, and his calm and measured narration keeps the listener reassured.

    "Fantastic!"
    What did you like most about Kane's Cross?

    I won this title in a twitter competition,This book is just alive! the reader really has pulled out all the stops with some great material. There are some assorted sound effects that really illustrate the audio if that makes sense.


    What other book might you compare Kane's Cross to, and why?

    It's a good adventure that will appeal to a wide variety of ages from teenage upwards but it's very Twilight with witches and so on


    Which character – as performed by Nigel Peever – was your favourite?

    They are all good, and lots of them.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Thrilling really as it nears the end it gets very exciting.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth a credit. I'll keep my eye out for a sequel.
