Publisher's Summary

New Berwick, Illinois, is different from any community in the world. One-fourth is human, with three-fourths struggling to conceal their supernatural powers, plus a curse that has plagued men for several generations

When a sheriff and his deputies discover half-eaten farm animals, a headless teenage girl, and the sudden disappearance of a 10-year-old boy who then mysteriously reappears happy, healthy, and with no memory of his ordeal, dangerous secrets are about to unfold.

The Berwick Witches, Werewolves, Vampires and more

It took me a little bit to get through this book because there is a lot going on and from time to time I would get lost. The over arching story is easy to follow but some of the side plots with the different creatures would sometimes distract from the overall story. That being said, I really enjoyed the overall story. There is a lot of story here to enjoy and it was quite unique.

The overall plot was interesting; however, my favorite story line was with Matthew. There is a scene in the woods where he and his girlfriend, Kayla, encounter a bear. It was a really exciting point in that story line. The other story line I really enjoyed was with the succubus, completely unnecessary to the storyline but great nonetheless There are a lot of little great pieces in this story that make the overall story a lot of fun to listen to. The story is full of action and the ending was the best part and while it is a slow crescendo it peaks quite high. I quite enjoyed how the setting seemed to be rural America in present time.

There are quite a few characters and it is easy to get lost with who is who and what their role and ability is. The story is also told over a period of time so while you would expect to get a lot of development of the characters I think they remain fairly static as I feel this was more plot driven and the characters were there to tell the story. You definitely get close to a few and become sympathetic with their fight.

The narrator did a good job. I would have liked to hear a bit more difference for the character’s voices, but he did have a good tone and his inflection was timed perfectly for the situations. I have heard him tell stories before and he is definitely a narrator you want to listen to.

Dark Covenant

I enjoyed this book.There was so much going on! Aaron Sinn was an ok narrator.He seemed more like a news anchor than a storyteller though. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Pretty Good but a little hard to follow

I think the author wrote a relatively interesting spin on the traditional shifter story with other paranormal beings (witches, etc.) and how they are connected. It was little confusing in some spots, but nothing a second listen wouldn't clear up. The plot advanced at a reasonable pace but the characters could have been a little more relatable.

The narrator did a decent job, however I think there could have been a good deal more differentiation between the character voices, in general. I found myself trying to figure who was speaking or being spoken about for a good bit of this listen. I actually think if the narrator had been able to do a better job of voice differentiation in this performance, it would have made the characters more relatable and would have made this an easier listen.

Overall, pretty interesting listen.

Great book!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I really thought this was an engaging and excellent listen. I liked the spooky town (and its inhabitants) the author describes in this book. There is a lot of great paranormal content that really draws you in. The narration is well done and really brings the story to life. There is so much for fans of both paranormal and horror to enjoy. I would definitely recommend this book for fans of either genre.

Awesome

First I want to say how cool and creepy this book is :) Second, the words just capture your attention from start to end and keep you interested the entire time. The narrator was great and I personally thought he did a great job bringing to life the book and would only reccomend that the books in the future are recorded with less audio interference in the background because that definitely takes away from the overall enjoyment of the audiobook but regardless I still loved this book and it rrven had my ultimate favorite which is VAMPIRE'S!
SO YES I RECCOMEND THIS BOOK TO OTHERS.

A Chilling Paranormal Battle

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Demons, Werewolves and Witches, oh my! This book is not a light hearted romp through the paranormal -- there are gory murders, spell casting, transformations, and curses. It is a well written story which weaves humans into the paranormal world and the chaos that ensues. Ultimately, it is a battle of good v. evil - with a few twists thrown in. I loved how in the midst of all the mayhem, the characters still had everyday mundane concerns about their kids, homework, romance etc. The story is tied up nicely until the very last paragraph or so... which then leaves room for a possible series.

The narrator, Aaron Sinn [as an aside, what a great last name to narrate this book] did a great job -- especially with the creepy factor of this story.

Dark and chilling paranormal thriller............

Dark Covenant definitely has the action part of the thriller genre handled, but, with it's dark and violent tone, I would describe it more as part of the horror genre. The story essentially boils down to the fight between good and evil, but the author uses werewolves, witches, demons, vampires and plain old humans on all sides of the fight. Randall does an amazing job of weaving many seemingly separate side-plots into a final battle. In the end, the side of goodness prevails...or does it? The ending was perfect - the author ties up all the loose ends until she opens it all up again in the very last paragraph.

Aaron Sinn's narration was perfect for this horror story. His delivery was smooth and clear, never overly emotional, yet he infused the story with just the right touch of creepiness. I would definitely listen to another book read by him in the future.
