Would you listen to Bad Games: Hellbent - A Dark Psychological Thriller again? Why?

Probably not. It was good, but it takes a lot for me to reread anything.

What did you like best about this story?

The narrator was amazing. He really brought the characters to life and made them all individuals.

If you could take any character from Bad Games: Hellbent - A Dark Psychological Thriller out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Domino. I wanna hear about his other adventures

Any additional comments?

The second book of the series was my favorite. This one was good, but there was a lot of torture porn in it and that gets old after a while.

In Autumn 2008 the Lambert family headed to Western Pennsylvania for a weekend getaway to the family cabin. They visited hell instead. The Fannelli brothers. Two psychopaths who believed themselves exceptional, put on this Earth for the soul purpose of tormenting others for their own amusement. To make people play their twisted games. Except the Lamberts managed the impossible. They played the game and survived. Showed the Fannelli brothers that they'd messed with the wrong family.

Welcome to Angel Hill, Missouri, a town that shot blood from the ground at its own groundbreaking. There are only two roads in or out of town, and everything within those borders is subject to the whims of reality. Those who grew up here are immune to the town's peculiarities. But Jack and Liz have just moved here, and for their young son, Joey, it's almost like coming home again.

What made the experience of listening to The Third Floor the most enjoyable?

The Third Floor is a prototypical haunted house story. Family moves to a new town with a local reputation for unexplainable phenomena. The house the family moves into tortures and haunts the family because of its sordid past. It's by no means a new story, but it's interesting and well told and since every story has been told before, all we can ask of our authors is to retell the story better and/or more interestingly than others who've come before and I think Moore does a really good job. Tiedemann does an excellent job of contributing to the creepy vibe of the story and infuses excellent vocalizations to the various characters you grow to identify with in the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Let the home buyer beware...of ghosts!
