The chase is over. For Rebecca, Daniel, and the rest of the Forgottens of Second Salvations, there is only one choice: Get with the program or die. But there's a spy lurking somewhere within the cabins of Angel Island, someone with contacts in the outside world. Ruth Black is determined to find out who it is before the world learns the truth about her - and about the special punishment ministry of her husband, the Reverend Matthew. Rebecca and Daniel are not destined to remain forgotten very long.

I am a fan of Marcus Damanda and Jessica McEvoy (nosleeppodcast) and I listened to the first book of this series, it is original and interesting in its subject matter. But, the narration is a little too slow in speed, at least for an entire book.

This story is very good mystery, the twists keep coming. It would make a good movie.

I like how the main character isn't an idiot and thinks her way through her choices, like people actually would. Well, most people. All of the characters in the story do a good job of keeping you guessing as to 'who done it', who to trust and who not to trust. The ending/reveal seemed a little less than what I expected considering the buildup. I was expecting a seriously shocking revelation, but overall it was a good story.

The story and narration were good but the story wasn't really about surviving or dealing with an apocalyptic situation. It seemed more like a story of surviving a localized natural disaster; forest fire gone wild. The situation wasn't global, so it didn't seem apocalyptic. Otherwise, the story was good. I am familiar with Kevin Pierce's narrations and he did well. I will eventually check out the first book in the series.

Mark's always been a bit insecure as a father; his own childhood sucked. He's been terrified he will ruin his perfect daughters. So he buys them presents and hopes he won't screw them up. They certainly won't forget this dollhouse. He doesn't know how to stop it, and all he wanted to do was be a good father. He was worried they'd grow up to hate him; now he's worried they won't grow up at all.

Joe Hempel is a great ghost story narrator and I always jump on his books, but I couldn't get into this story. The premise of a cursed dollhouse was slightly interesting but the character decisions and dialogue seemed a little off or under done. I didn't finish the story, I got about 75% through it. I am still looking forward to Hempel's next narration.

Andy Crowl barely knew his recently deceased cousin, Craig Moore, so he’s especially surprised to be named as the sole beneficiary in Craig’s will. Not that there’s much to inherit: just an empty bank account and a run-down house. Once Andy arrives in the town of Mortom, however, he’s drawn into his puzzle-obsessed cousin’s true legacy: a twisted and ominous treasure hunt. Beckoned by macabre clues of dead rats and cemetery keys, Andy jumps into the game, hoping to discover untold wealth. But unsavory secrets - and unanswered questions about Craig’s untimely demise - arise at every turn....

I am familiar with Christopher Lane as a narrator and immediately liked him on another book. So when I saw this book was available with him as the narrator, I jumped on it.

I am new to Erik Therme's books and I like this story. It has a way of irritating you in a good way to want to know what's going on. The story is a good mystery.

Three such antiheroes are brought together by a billionaire for a unique search-and-retrieval mission. If they succeed, they'll walk away free and clear with a big fat payday. But if they fail...
