A song of mourning...and warning.
From the depths of Briarsnare Marsh, the Yunwi Tsunsdi - the Little People - sing their dirge when death approaches to claim a soul. Sometimes though, even death can be fooled.
The residents of Boone Creek are shocked by the grisly discovery of seven mutilated corpses - their sons and daughters, brothers and sisters - but an even bigger surprise awaits them when the grave gives up its victims.
This miraculous resurrection has not gone unnoticed. The Leechers--thirteen men, doomed to walk for all eternity in the shadowland between life and death, bound by a curse to hunt those who would use uncanny power--unleash their judgment on anyone with a connection to those who have returned.
Now it's up to Ezekiel Crane, the enigmatic seventh son of a seventh son, to thwart the Leechers' grisly mission and discover who has sent them to wreak vengeance on the sleepy Appalachian hamlet he is sworn to protect.
The dirge is being sung. Death is coming to the Dark Hollows...with a vengeance.

Can't make that call, haven't read the print version yet.
Yes. It was fast paced with a lot of close calls for the heroes.
He was very good at creating dramatic tension.
Asherah Richardson, and her mysterious relationship with Ezekiel Crane.
A rollicking ride through backwoods Kentucky!
I cannot believe I put off reading the Dark Hollows series for so long. I am hooked. I just love J.Kent Holloway's writing, his characters are so fun and interesting. This book gives a nod to Devil's Child which I thought was nicely done and it was great seeing a character you know in a very different light. The last couple of chapters really grab you and I couldn't help but shed a tear or two. If a book can create that sort of emotion you know it's a keeper. Andrew B. Wehrlen does a great job bringing the characters and scenes to life.
It has been a while since I listened to the first book in the Dark Hollows series, but it did not take me long to fall right back under its spell. Many of the characters are back, and the supernatural story had me listening long after I got out of the car. The characters were well formed and the story was fast paced. The setting was intriguing. It was easy to picture the woods and other places where the story took place, especially Briarsnare Marsh. Now the only problem is how long it will be before we are treated to another installment of all that is Ezekiel Crane!
