The story is about Alan whose sister disappeared when they were young. Alan has come back to the town where it happened to try to find out what happen..Show More »ed to her. A lot of children have disappeared over the years and he wants to know why. What happened to them all? I liked that it was more spooky than just out and out violent. I like the way the author wrote it with Alan in present day and a journal from 1826. The author did an excellent job with blending the two time periods. The characters were connected through generations so you really get the full impact of how long the horror has gone on. I enjoyed the narrator, Jake Urry. He has a good voice and puts emotions into his reading. At times I forgot it was just one narrator. If you are reading the book yourself you may find the beginning slow going as the author builds the story. It does quickly pick up though. I think this was better in the audio version. It is more like someone is telling you a story they know. I stayed with it better. If you like spooky, atmospheric stories you may like this one. If you are looking for violent, gory stuff you probably won't.
This story is a great continuation in the Slaughter Series by A.I. Nasser. Learning more about the sacrifices made by "The Council", though n..Show More »one from their own families, unveils more of the corruption that has existed in this town for years.
While Alan has been in a coma, new members of the council step up to fill vacant positions and continue with the cover up and sacrifices to keep Copper at bay. But the families of those sacrificed have had enough and are determined to fight back and unravel everything. Alan Carter however, is not the same after he wakes up...something still has a hold on him...or is he losing his mind?
Jake Urry's narration is superbly executed throughout the book and his somewhat hypnotic voice helps to keep you enthralled. Well Done!
Looking forward to the final book in this series.
I received this audiobook for free in return for my honest review.
