Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Will be haunted by that voice for days"

    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!

    "Skip to the end!"

    A huge disappointment. I have listened to 5 hours of the 9 hours and 12 minutes. There are 5 different sets of people. They have been introduced and something critical has happen where they must go out in the snow. There is a sinister moan, where everyone hears something different within the moan. The moan is preceded by an eerie silence or dear and other animals stampeding.

    A character will encounter a sinister situation and them we are off to others. The sheriff was put in a sinister situation in chapter 9. I am in chapter 33 (out of 77 chapters) and still waiting to see what happen to him.

    This has taken too long to get to any action. Even with my cozy mysteries have something happens quickly. I need some action or witty repartee to hold my interest. The little snap shots of the characters do not give enough time to invest in any character.

    Everyone has heard the moan and I am tired of being bored. Good luck to you if you finish it.

    I did skip to the end and was not impressed with that either.

    "Engaging story with fantastic narration"

    The combination of narration and story made this novel terrifying. Fantastic work and a must for horror fans.

    "Good Terror"

    I love horror books. This book had gore, violence and suspenseful terror. I have both kindle edition and audiobook but enjoyed listening to the narrator as he made it seem real, good thing I was not listening to it when we lost power for 3days and 2 ft. of snow a couple of years back. Loved the characters especially Cody, Oxford, and Alice, hated Marley. Also recommend his series (The Haunted) to anyone who enjoys horror and ghosts.

    Story
    "Good, but not great"
    What did you like best about Skin? What did you like least?

    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.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    unsure, I'm really not that creative :)


    Which character – as performed by Michael Pauley – was your favorite?

    They all had their respective charm... well maybe except for Cody's wife, she just annoyed me :)


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, I think so as i'm curious how the "creature" would be depicted.

    "Great book."

    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.

    Very good book. A bit overly descriptive but really enjoyable horror. Needs a better narrator.

    Story
    "Was expecting more"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who likes that trapped with the family feeling and is not looking for a lot of horror.
    Also does not mind hearing the word "Come" a lot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patrick Logan again?

    Not in this series but probably would give him another chance.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Michael Pauley?

    He did an okay job but they manipulated audio like when they were on the cell phone so it was hard to hear.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyed mostly and disappointed. The book started to really lose me in chapter one but I kept with it and thought at the start I liked several of the characters that quickly faded and when we finally met Alice I could care less and when we finally got back to the monster it was disappointing. And there was really surprise in it like when they introduced the case I knew what it was going to be used for. And each time the creature kept calling out "Come" which is a lot I became more annoyed with the book.


    Any additional comments?

    The part I liked best was when the author spoke a bit at the end and I wished I could have given him a better review. Heck the description sounded chilling but in the I was disappointed and found the plot too weak to support the story. I think he has the talent to be a good author just not with this series.
