Would you listen to Riley V again? Why?

Yes. I've listened to series several times and will listen several more times. And I am NOT a repeat book listener!

Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Only mark Tufo books. He's remarkable!

As a traditional psychotherapist, Dr. Brian Weiss was astonished and skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. His skepticism was eroded, however, when she began to channel messages from the "space between lives", which contained remarkable revelations about Dr. Weiss' family and his dead son. Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career.

When Laurie was a little girl, she was forbidden to enter the room at the top of the stairs. It was one of many rules imposed by her cold, distant father. Now, in a final act of desperation, her father has exorcised his demons. But when Laurie returns to claim the estate with her husband and 10-year-old daughter, it's as if the past refuses to die. She feels it lurking in the broken moldings, sees it staring from an empty picture frame, hears it laughing in the moldy greenhouse deep in the woods.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I honestly think that the last few chapters have to be missing! There is no way a book can end so abruptly ALMOST mid sentence!

What do you think your next listen will be?

It won't be one of this authors books! Have some respect for your readers time!

What three words best describe Cassandra Campbell’s voice?

Breathy and a bit too focused on trying to create tension

Any additional comments?

There was NO reason at all to include the 11 year old getting a period. It made no sense to even bring this up!

I have 455 books in my audible library. This book is in my top 5. This book puts you inside this girl. It was beautifully written and in all honesty, I don't believe this book should be listed as teen. The subject, while never graphic is a bit mature for teen. I LOVED this book.

2019. Six years after the Jakarta Pandemic “decimated” the world's population; life is back to normal for the Fletchers and most Americans. The United States stands at the brink of a complete domestic and international resurgence, with stories of confidence and prosperity dominating the headlines. Appearances can be deceiving. An undercurrent of paranoia and fear still runs strong below the surface; the collective angst spawned by 28 million American deaths forever stamped into population's psyche.

Narration is fantastic!
The story took too long to get going and I almost gave up. I tired of the early experience quickly but once Dave comes in ( over half way), the second personality really moved the story along WONDERFULLY! The relationship between the main character and Dave is just fantastic. I immediately downloaded the second book! Hang in there because it gets GOOD!
