Publisher's Summary

Benton Bertrand is a banshee, cursed with the ability to sense death. Every time he sleeps, he becomes a trapped passenger within a murderer’s skin: able to hear, see, and feel every part of their kill. No matter how hard he tries, it always ends the same way - with death.

This collection contains all six books from Sara Clancy’s best-selling Banshee series:

Midnight Screams (Book 1): After 10 years of constantly relocating, Benton’s family decides to settle in Fort Wayward, Alberta. But things change when he discovers why death follows him, why monsters draw close, and why he always wakes up screaming....

Whispering Graves (Book 2): Benton’s world unravels again when he encounters a new monster that kills by whispering its victim’s name. He needs to save the residents of Fort Wayward while preventing this evil from whispering him straight to his grave.

Shattered Dreams (Book 3): Benton travels to a sleep center in a desperate attempt to organize his thoughts. But a violent storm of demonic forces forms, with its eyes set on Fort Wayward. Benton needs to warn the unsuspecting town before demons claim every single soul.

Rotting Souls (Book 4): Recovering from their last ordeal, Benton and Nicole discover that ghosts from their past are stalking a young girl. As they struggle to save the girl’s life, Nicole confronts her lack of remorse for having been responsible for the death of one of the vengeful spirits.

Weeping Moon (Book 5): Benton and Nicole travel to the Fort Wayward tribal festival to seek help regarding his terrifying abilities. They soon discover a monster that uses the cries of an infant to lure its victim. And amid this horror, another devastating nightmare looms.

Death Veil (Book 6): A vicious spirit attacks Benton’s family, and they flee to the Siksika reservation for protection. Here, they are forced to face the past to keep evil from permanently crossing over to the land of the living.

Creepy!!

This series has quickly become one of my favourite. Each book has been action packed and each one seems to get creepier and creepier. Here's a bit of what I wrote in some of my reviews for the individual books.....

Book 1: This was such a great read. Once I started listening, I couldn't stop because so much happens and it was impossible to pause because I always wanted to see what happened next. It never let up!!

The plot was well developed and extremely creepy. I was thoroughly intrigued with Benton and his abilities. There isn't much given away about what he is till near the end, but it wasn't hard to guess either because of what the series is called. I can't wait to find out more about Benton in future books though!!!

I felt for Benton. He is going through so much but no one believes him. I just wanted to grab him and give him a hug. I was so glad when he met Nicole because she is someone he can trust. I loved seeing their friendship grow. Both of the characters were well written and developed and were easy to like, even if Nicole was too happy at times ;)

In all, this was a creepy, intense and fast page read. It's a short enough book, but it packs a lot into it so feels longer. I can't wait to see what book 2 brings.

Book 2: I loved book 1 and eagerly dived into this one when I got it. This starts with a bang and doesn't let up till the end. It's darker and scarier than the first and I loved it!! The plot is tighter than the last and is incredibly fast paced. I listened to this in one day because I couldn't put it aside.

Benton and Nicole have come a long way since the first book and have become stronger characters. Nicole isn't as annoying as she was in book 1 and Benton is learning to live with what he is. They are facing something sinister and I loved seeing them work together.

In all, book 2 is even better than the first. It's fast paced, scary and gripping and I definitely need the next book ASAP. Hopefully it will come to audio soon.

Book 3: This was a lot darker and more intense than the last two. Benton is struggling to understand his powers and with the fact that his dreams have become fractured, I felt for him a lot more than I did before. All I wanted to do was wrap him up in a hug because he is hurting!!

The plot was slow starting off, but it was incredibly creepy and spooky. The authors descriptive writing was able to pull me in easily and I could picture the long lonely road, the raging storm and the scary aspects of the spirits!! I had a hard time putting this down because I was enjoying the atmosphere so much.

I love that I'm not really able to see where the author is going with the story! Benton is certainly growing as a character but I can't see where he'll end up, and that's a good thing!! It makes me extra eager for the next installment. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next evil entity will be and how our intrepid heroes will handle it!!

I could keep going for the next few books but I echo my earlier sentiments in each of them. The series as a whole is amazing and one I highly recommend.

Jake Urry is one of my favourite narrators. He has such a distinctive voice and one that can bring a horror novel, or any novel for that matter, alive. He has plenty of tones and voices for the characters and he is able to bring a story to life with his cadences and inflections. He read this brilliantly and I highly recommend you check him out.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Benton and Nicole for the win!

I love this series. I had read a couple of the books before listening to all six and even hearing the stories again was enjoyable. I love the energy that Sara gives these two. On top of the in-depth plot, their character development and on going banter really make the story for me. With the climatic ending of the last book, I can’t wait to see how everything evolves with all this new knowledge for the characters. And what boogie man will visit Fort Wayward next!?

Would absolutely recommend the series to anyone interested in the supernatural and/or folklore. And when you’re finished with this series, check out the other Scarestreet authors!
