It takes a while to get used to the narrator but once you do the story and the narration are magical.

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, Malorie has long dreamed of fleeing to a place where her family might be safe. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: 20 miles downriver in a rowboat blindfolded with nothing to rely on but Malorie's wits and the children's trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them....

Very suspenseful. I listen in my car and at times, I just wanted to stay and listen. I didn't like the narrator at first but then slowed her voice and enjoyed it more.
