I highly recommend this read to any true crime lover!

The POV from the killer is SHOCKING and makes it creepy and cringe-worthy.

I couldn't stop listening and have made sure to lock my doors at night lol.

I'm so bummed that I couldn't finish the book because the content is amazing but the narration completely ruins it for me. I really tried to stick to it, because again the content is top-notch and very thrilling but since it is being told in such a non-pleasing way, you just can't stick with it.

It isn't often you get to read an alien abduction story from the point of view of the aliens and I found it highly enjoyable!

Very realistic and great characterization and the story kept you enthralled at ever turn.

Sometimes you just need a light romance, and this one definitely delivers a sweet and fun romance.

I have sisters and totally related to the sister-bonding/relationships and enjoyed that part of the story immensely.

It was fun to see the story unfold between Jackson and Millie.

I really enjoyed this one. My only complaint really is that it wasn't longer, I wanted more background about the house - just seemed a little too quick to me, but overall a great spooky read!

I'm not even the hugest fan of fantasy novels, though I was when I was younger, but this one DRAWS you in. I found the narrator very compelling and the story by the author incredible so it was a beautiful combination. You can't stop listening!

I love Pride and Prejudice and was so eager for this story, but the narrator just completely ruined it for me, to the degree that I only got about 20 minutes in. When she does voices, it's great, but the majority of the narration is not voices and is TERRIBLE as she does this sing-songy cadence over and over in the same exact manner, no matter what she is saying. Honestly each sentence is said in that same exact tone. It's horrid and sad because the story could be amazing.

Loved this trilogy.
I still love the narrator in the first book but that is probably a personal preference.
For the third I was a tiny bit disappointed how some things were talked over rather quickly in order to achieve resolution but overall an amazing series!
The narrator in the 2nd and 3rd feels a little too monotone to me.
