YOU SENSE HIM
Some refer to it as the Colony. To others, it’s a cult. But few locals in the Oregon coastal hamlet of Deception Bay have ever been invited to the inner sanctum of Siren Song. Even the sisters who live here, far from strangers who might recoil at their unnerving psychic abilities, don’t know all the terrors buried within its walls…
YOU FEAR HIM
Eight months into a surrogate pregnancy for her sister, Kristina, Detective Savannah Dunbar just wants to wrap up paperwork before taking medical leave. But her department’s investigation into a brutal double homicide has suddenly become much more complex — and personal. And now there are disturbing rumors about the Colony, its matriarch, and a long history of bitter secrets...
BUT YOU CAN NEVER STOP HIM
Death has come to Siren Song before. But this time there will be no refuge and no remorse. For everything born in wickedness must die that way — and a killer will not rest until he has claimed them all…

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Something Wicked does not include a lot of mystery or suspense, but it is a worthwhile listen EXCEPT Susan Ericksen narrates the book as if excited. I am normally an Ericksen fan, but she was horrid reading this book.
This book must have been written in all caps with a dozen exclamation marks after each sentence. Why else would the narrator read (scream) it that way? I doubt that Marines in boot camp are yelled at that much.
The back story was interesting but the main story, about a crazed serial killer, was "eh"
Loved it! This was a great listen. I really loved the series and this book was a great addition to it. I wish I had re-listened to the first two books in the series as it's been years since I listened to them but you can read this without having the prior knowledge of the first two books but it's a great series and even though they bring you up-to-date I always love having all the details.
Each book has it's own great story-line they all have something to do with Siren Song or the group of women who live at Siren Song. Siren Song is a Colony of sorts. It's a family owned lodge/house filled with half sisters and ran by their aunt. Living with little to no contact to the outside world and each having some kind of supernatural power.
I LOVED it. It had me interested from start to finish. Great plot, great character building, great characters and very well written.
The narration was excellent and very fitting for the story. Susan Ericksen did a great job on this book and the whole series.
I generally don't read or listen to a book a 2nd time but with this one I may have to... Because audible doesn't have books 2 or 3 of this great listen! :/ By the time they have those books I may have to reacquaint myself with the story in order to remember this 1st book of series.
I don't understand how audible/Amazon can have only partial books for a complete series!? Again, this book is amazing and I want to know what happens to Savy & Hale and what happens to good time Charlie! So many unanswered questions because the 2nd & 3rd installments/books are not made available on audible. May have to go back to the old fashioned way and buy those books & read them just so I can get all the answers left unanswered. Had I known that this was one of many I am now seeing, series that are incomplete here on audible, I would not have paid for it.. I would've bought the hard Cover books and read them. I've already sent requests for other incomplete series.. Will be sending this one into audible too. Otherwise this is a fantastic book!
i love listening to stories in my car!
The story was good, I enjoyed every bit of it
The reader was VERY annoying for about the first 8 hours I eventually did get use to her
I just didn't care for her voice on the characters
If you aren't picky on the readers a great book
If you do have issues with the readers put it aside and you will enjoy the book
This story line was all over the place, didn't help that the narrator didn't have any pauses when switching from characters/scenes. Half the time I didn't realize it was a different scene w/different characters til a minute or 2 after hearing it. On top of that she screamed everything & everyone sounded angry at all times. It was incredibly hard to get into this book. By the end I just wanted it to hurry up and be over. I'm not even sure who the "murderer" they were talking about throughout the whole book was when they finally had the reveal, that's how indifferent I had become.
Complete disappointment in this book.
I really enjoy a good 'Mystery/Thriller' but the narrator can cause me, at times, to not listen to what might have been a really good story.
I listened to this book while on a very long drive. It really helped the time pass quickly, but, at one point I got so engrossed in the story I discovered that my speed had dropped to 55 so be careful! Narration was good as was the storyline. Only question is, will there be a sequel to this book? The ending just kind of left me 'hanging'.
