I am just girl who loves my husband, dogs, shopping online and books!
This is a very interesting listen.
it definitely kept me entertained.its fast paced. I loved hearing about PSD. I know a lot of people have it, i liked hearing this writers View point of it. The characters in this book are definitely interesting and well written.
I was gratefully provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..
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
I am an author as well as a budding audio book lover.
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!
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.
"Poignant story complimented by the narration"
Sensitive, Poignant, Gripping
Kane - the depth of emotion and character was really rich and the narration reflected this well.
Not yet but I will be interested to look at other titles as I really enjoyed the tone and delivery - very respectful to the text.
Overall a great book and a great partnership between story and reader. I hope the reader gets to continue with this style as it was really enjoyable. A must-have for a long car journey!
"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.
I'd like to hear more audiobooks from Nigel Peever.
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.
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
They are all good, and lots of them.
Thrilling really as it nears the end it gets very exciting.
Well worth a credit. I'll keep my eye out for a sequel.
"It'd make a great movie"
The reader was excellent and really performed the story, It was like he was a one man radio drama.
The Mysterious Garden and it's inhabitants. It's all just a good exciting story with great characters and well constructed, It's well worth having a listen too. The fight in the factory, The creepy echoing caves etc etc
The climax of the story becomes very exciting and visual as the forces of darkness are unleashed. This audiobook even has numerous sound effects to enhance the Narration.
