This book was very suspenseful. I love reading about serial killers, and this author really did his research to make the book realistic. The plot was unusual with a paranormal element that worked well. The twist in the middle came as a complete surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed this book
Well paced with interesting characters and excellent narration. Very professionally done compared to some audio books I've listened to lately.
Her voice was nuanced and nice to listen to.
One of the best books I've listened to in a long time. I thoroughly enjoyed it...even though it kept me up at night.
This is one of the best mystery-thriller books I've ever read. It's hard to describe this book because it's an interesting blend of suspense, mystery, thriller, paranormal elements, and real-life serial killers as characters. There's some spine-tingling horror, but it never becomes overly gory or gratuitous. Overall, it's a book that keeps you guessing about the mystery behind the circus, and why these teens start to behave differently after their shows. I became engrossed in the intrigue of this book and was unable to stop listening until it was finished, that's how good it was. It was very suspenseful! Luckily, I was on a long road trip and was able to fully indulge myself in this book. If you like intriguing story lines with well-developed characters, a good dose of humor, lots of suspense and plenty to keep you guessing, then this is the book for you. I know you'll enjoy it. I sure did!
The "reveal" scene where we find out the mystery of the Circus. SO GOOD!
The narrator did an excellent job of making the story suspenseful and intriguing.
I became fascinated with the serial killers depicted in the book. I looked a lot of them up and found that the author really did her homework. Very interesting angle.
I can't wait for the sequel!
Suspenseful Unexpected Voyage
The story was engaging, unpredictable and kept you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
As horror/suspense books go, not one scene over another is meant to be a "favorite". Having said that, my favorite part about the book was the way it engaged you in the story at the beginning and you never felt any of the twists had a predictable outcome. Every plot curve is undeniably unexpected and the ending even more unexpected. Well worth the journey.
Extreme reactions to the book couldn't put it down, sometimes because of suspense, sometimes because of the horror aspect. It definitely had me completely engaged. At times i smiled, at times i was horrified, then terrified and at other times i felt the emotion of a character as though they were real. Well written.
It takes a special kind of writer to successfully write across genres. Riley J Ford is one of those writers that i believe could write anything.
