best audio book I've listened to in a long time.... I loved that the story felt real life... a real family with real life struggles.... not some Harry Potter fantasy land but it also had such magical elements. I couldn't stop listening to this one... I didn't want it to end. MORE PLEASE! I need spoon benders part 1-100! 😆

I enjoyed this book a lot ... Although... The narrator seems very prim and proper and middle-aged so it sounded a bit funny when he talked about smoking fat nasty blunts haha but I really did enjoy this book it was very creepy and cut my attention the whole time. I would definitely read more from this author would and would definitely recommend!!

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....
