Publisher's Summary

A sci-fi horror book in development to be a feature film....

In 1988, Lydia Conner was taken from her cabin near Specter Lake, Minnesota, while her husband lay in bed, temporarily paralyzed. She screamed at him for help as she floated up to the ceiling in a blinding flash of light...and then she was gone.

In 2009, four film school students journeyed to the Specter Lake cabin where the abduction of Lydia Conner took place. They hoped to capture proof of an alien visitation on film; they hoped to re-create events from the abduction; they hoped to use themselves as bait...but they encountered much more than they ever could've imagined.

Contains strong language and some graphic violence.

    "Aliens!"

    On reading the blurb, I initially thought that it would be one of those books, you know the ones that are done to death!! 4 friends head to a cabin miles from anywhere in the hopes of proof of what happened there, nothing new there, been there done that! But when I say that it was narrated by Teri Schnaubelt, I knew I had to listen. I always enjoy her narration and find that she can bring any story to life. Well, this is no different. She nails the performance, and I think helped me enjoy this a lot more that if I read it!

    The plot doesn't really have anything new. Though I did love the "Alien" they had guarding the door of the cabin! ;) It's a fairly fast paced read and there is plenty tension throughout that will keep your attention. It was predictable at times, but it didn't really take away anything from the overall feel of the book. It's a solid abduction book, with a few small twists thrown in.

    In all, a quick and exciting read. It wasn't ground breaking, but it did entertain me, and that's good enough for me.

    *I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affects my thoughts.*

    "Not your usual alien abduction"

    Was a totally different alien story. First time I've ever read about one based in the Northwoods of Minnesota. Teri did a great job of making the characters realistic.

    "What a pleasant surprise"

    I usually don't like alien abduction books but this one really surprised me. So much so that I've purchased a totally different book from the same author.....bad reviews on it or not I like this guy! John is working on his thesis. He recruits his girlfriend Veronica, his best friend Drew and the star of his movie about alien abductions......Fran. years ago Fran's father was paralyzed in bed while her mother was dragged & abducted by a blinding blue light at their cabin. The same cabin John has brought everyone to. Fran tells her story. Her mom disappears & returns.......pregnant. She's never really the same even though she doesn't remember anything about the two days she was missing. Is Fran's father's story bogus? Did her mother simply abandon them. Better yet is Fran 1/2 alien? Almost immediately strange things start to happy. Bats commit suicide, mutilated animals....the only animals they really see or hear, footsteps on the porch of the cabin, camera's don't work etc. Did John set it up to make his film more sensational. Awesome narrator, great plot, characters seem real. great all around book.........go for it!

    Story
    "UFO's Sightings"
    If you could sum up Sightings in three words, what would they be?

    Blair Witch Project.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John, because he was so dedicated to his project.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the car would not start and Drew was so sure John did something to it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Drew is in the light and could not move, sad.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was made so good because of the narrator, Teri Schnaubelt. She is one of the best narrator's. I love listening to her books. She makes the characters come alive as you are listening.
