When best-selling horror author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween night in one of the country's most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he won't be alone; joining him are three other masters of the macabre, writers who have helped shape modern horror. But what begins as a simple publicity stunt will become a fight for survival. The entity they have awakened will follow them, torment them, threatening to make them a part of the bloody legacy of Kill Creek.

Like most of the reviews say, the first half is amazing and the second half is still great, but slows down a little. Love the ending though. If you are into psychological horror it's a fun ride.

Charlotte Rowe spent the first seven years of her life in the hands of the only parents she knew - a pair of serial killers who murdered her mother and tried to shape Charlotte in their own twisted image. If only the nightmare had ended when she was rescued. Instead, her real father exploited her tabloid-ready story for fame and profit - until Charlotte finally broke free from her ghoulish past and fled.

This is a great story with a good pacing and fun twists and turns. A realistic superhero tale. The secondary characters aren't bad, but feel a bit wooden and stereotypical (manly man, strong confident woman, evil bad guy). The main character does progress nicely through the story and by the end she is much more well rounded and likable. Fair warning to all listeners and readers, there are a lot and I mean a lot of references to abuse, especially rape and emotional abuse. Its seems to be brought up in some way about every half hour or so. Its important to the story, but the frequency that it gets talked about is jarring to say the least. As a primary reason for the character's actions it's a good plot device, however after awhile I just wanted them to get on with the story instead of trying to raise awareness about the altered mental states of abuse victims. With that in mind give it a read or a listen. It's an enjoyable journey most of the time.
