Welcome to Askergan County, where the last murder was committed more than a decade ago.
Tucked away in northeastern Vermont, picturesque Askergan County is the perfect place for a winter vacation - for the lucky few who know about it. Askergan is so peaceful, crime so nonexistent, that they don't even have a full-time police force, just a Sheriff and two deputies who spend most of their time dishing out parking tickets and breaking up the occasional bar fight.
But that was before the storm.
A blizzard suddenly descends on the county, trapping Cody Lawrence and his young family inside their home. At first their only concerns are to stay inside and keep warm. But Cody soon finds out that there is more to fear than just snow and ice. Something has been unleashed by the storm, something ancient, something evil. Something with primal needs.
When the power goes out and they lose cell phone service, Cody realizes that his family's only chance of survival is to team up with the dysfunctional sheriff's department and head out into the snow to face the very thing that so desperately needs their skin.
Welcome to Askergan County, where the last murder was committed yesterday, today, an hour ago, a minute ago.

On the bright side, I loved listening to your scary story. On the bad side, the narrator was so monotone, I thought it was a computer. Please use someone who acts out the characters and doesn't just read the words.
I love a good scare. I especially love when a book delivers and keeps me thinking about the story for days. Excellent job by the author Patrick Logan to flesh out (pun intended) characters that we realistic. The icing on the cake were the voices and sound effects by Michael Pauley. His ability to give each character their own style that reflect their own personality heightened the enjoyment!
The narrator used sound effects which were fun and made the story more lively. However, many people raved about this book and I had big expectations which alas weren't met.... It wasn't bad and was entertaining but I guess I expected it to be scarier and more elaborate. That said, the writing is good, the characters well developed and I believe the author is talented.... so I'll check out more of his work.
unsure, I'm really not that creative :)
They all had their respective charm... well maybe except for Cody's wife, she just annoyed me :)
Yes, I think so as i'm curious how the "creature" would be depicted.
Story was okay. Writing was not bad. Narration was a little mechanical but I did enjoy the background sound. It really helped portray the cold. As these type stories go it was probably a 4 but I'm not usually a fan of these type monster stories.
The narrator was a bit monotone and mechanical for my taste but this is the first horror sci-fi book that has held my rapt attention throughout the book. A journey among both mental and physical demons that are described in what I can only imagine is first hand experience clarity. This author has the best/worst imagination since Stephen King.
