I enjoyed the first 2 books in this series and I love Scott Sigler so I gave the narrator a chance after listening to his introduction explaining the need for a more mature voice to show Em has aged and that he was pleased with the job Kovacs did reading this book. I can not believe that he truly feels this way! She is the worst narrator I have ever come across and I am including Google text to voice in that. Her male voices are appalling it really destroyed the story for me. I persisted but the narration was so awful I missed a lot. I don't like to criticise or post negative reviews of things people have created but this is very very disappointing

It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he'd already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed. Then there was that video: 40 seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet it was posted from his own YouTube account. Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed - until now.

When horror author Thad McAlister began his latest novel, a tale rooted in the witch trials of centuries past, the words flowed effortlessly. The story poured forth, filling page after page with the most frightening character ever to crawl from his imagination. It was his greatest work, one that would guarantee him a position among the legends of the craft.

I love this book. The story is really engrossing the reader is awesome and I never guessed what was going to happen next. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because many times the story refers to the sweet scent of bougainvillea flowers but they are papery flowers with no scent. It bugged me ...maybe its petty

Set adrift by his wife's suicide and struggling to keep some sort of grasp on reality, Bunny Munro drives off in his yellow Fiat Punto, Bunny Jr. in tow. To his son, waiting patiently in the car while he peddles beauty wares and quickies to lonely housewives in the south of England, Bunny is a hero, larger than life. But Bunny himself seems to have only a dim awareness of his son's existence, viewing his needs as a distraction from the relentless pursuit of sex, alcohol, and drugs.

I don't even know how to go about explaining this story except it is what I expected from a master storyteller such as Nick Cave. It is dark , amusing , sad and unpredictable. It is a beautiful story and an awful story at the same time. The main thing is it really affected me which is what I love in a good book. Well worth the money!!

I was pleasantly surprised by a whole bunch of original aspects of this story. First and foremost the main character Luna is approx 35 years old, a little chubby and far from perfect. She has no idea what she is getting into but she bumbles her way through to save her brothers baby. I loved it. It is a bit girly while still being gritty and full of guts.Mercedes Yardley is witty and at times downright funny. Can't wait for the next book. Well worth your money and time. Well done!!

Whispering Pines is a classic, quiet, private American subdivision on the edge of Asheville, NC, set in the pristine Blue Ridge Mountains. Which is good since the zombie apocalypse has come to Western North Carolina and really put suburban living to the test! Surrounded by a sea of the undead, the residents of Whispering Pines have adapted their bucolic life of block parties to scavenging parties, common area groundskeeping to immediate area warfare, neighborhood beautification to neighborhood fortification.

Looking for evil is one thing... finding it is another. When Patricia White revisits her backwoods home, an atrocious secret from her past isn't the only thing that begins to haunt her. Creepy, erotic, and relentless, The Backwoods delivers up a new kind of horror in a foreboding terrain of reclusive hillfolk, demented murder mysteries, and soul-searing horror. Has the town Patricia calls home really been cursed? No, it's been blessed. By an unspeakable evil older than sin.

He’s back. Once a Roman officer rejected as a lover by Jesus of Nazareth, now a vampire still haunted by Jesus after two millennia of grisly revenge in monasteries around the world, Victor Decimus returns to his hometown, the Eternal City of Rome. At the Monastery of San Benedetto, 'Brother Victor' continues his campaign of defiance against the Christian God, while remaining near his first love, whose apparitions have never ceased.
