Publisher's Summary

Its roots are old...and twisted!

The blood of the tree is its sap. It has sustained Scott Belvedere's family for generations. It's the secret ingredient behind the family's intoxicating ale and bourbon, among other elixirs. But only when Scott inherits The Family Tree Inn, deep in the hills of Virginia, does he learn anything about his family, its symbiotic history, or the mammoth, ancient tree around which the inn is literally built. And after he stumbles upon the bony secrets hidden in its roots, while in the welcoming arms of the innkeeper's daughter, he realizes that not only is blood thicker than water - it's the only thing that might save him from the hideous fate of his ancestors...

    I am an avid reader and listener of horror and thrillers with the occasional SciFi and crime noir.

    "Great story. Too fast narration."

    I read this one a few years ago and really dug it so jumped on the chance to listen to the audio when John offered up a review copy. I rarely if ever re-read (listen) to a work. If you saw my tbr you would know why.

    This was a fast listen. Literally. It sounded like it was running at 1.25x. It was really kind of distracting. It was too fast. When I slowed it down to .75x, it was too slow. Weird. I have never ran across narration that was spoken this quickly and it was hard to keep up.

    If you like "fast talkers" and can keep up, then this may be your huckleberry. If not, then I would stick to the print version.

    *I received a complimentary audiobook of this title from the author in exchange for an honest review.
