Publisher's Summary

Scarlett Lattimore arrives at Lilith House, an abandoned mansion built in 1876, that later housed a reform school for troubled girls, to start a new life with her seven-year-old daughter.

But between the nearby town with the strange, disconcerting feel, the deputy sheriff who is equal parts intriguing and suspicious, and the discovery that their new home holds a dark and violent past, Scarlett soon begins to question her rash decision.

She is shaken and afraid by the screams that echo in the walls and the drumbeat that arises from the surrounding woods where the ghost of an indigenous man is said to roam, seeking vengeance. Her fear is also personal, because Scarlett knew one of the girls who attended the school, a friend who escaped into those woods and was never seen again. They all thought she was a rebellious runaway who later encountered foul play, but perhaps the truth is far more sinister.

As Scarlett’s extraordinary daughter Haddie becomes consumed by the eerie figure who weaves and beckons through the forest fog, and a legacy of secrets reveal themselves, it becomes clear both Scarlett and Haddie are in grave danger. When the past intersects with the present, they will come face to face with the true evil of Lilith House. An evil that has lasted for more than a century.

So beautiful

This is such a beautiful story. I loved Alexander’s narration however I cringed every time maya read her part. She was really bad. However the story was so good I overlooked the bad narration on her end. This was as n incredible story. Thank you AGAIN Mia Sheridan for another incredible story. It was so worth the credit I spent.

Narration problem

I love Mia Sheridans storytelling. I cringed at the male narration. like a voice over for an action movie promotion. Or a NBA game introduction. too much. however, I'm moving on to another book by Ms Sheridan but not if this guy is narrating.

The narrators really ruined this one for me

I found the story to be a bit boring and the MC’s bland and hard to relate too. But the narrators was the final straw for me. I couldn’t continue with the story because of it.

If you have time to read only one book this year,

Reel is a love story beautifully written about Canon and Neevah. I absolutely loved every single word starting from the day they met to the 1st time they made love to the last word printed and don't let me get started on that beautiful book cover.

Canon's struggle to resist his attraction for Neevah is beautiful. He is drawn to her innocent honesty and yes her beauty but what he wants most is to satisfy his need to be close to her and know her deeper than anyone else ever had. Everyday they work together is a challenge in temptation. He is the director in a movie he is responsible for her staring in. It would only ruin her if they got involved. Keep your distance and leave her alone. That's what the angel on his shoulder is telling him while the devil on the other shoulder is telling him to taste the beauty he yearns for.


"I shoot down the image of Neevah, her smile equal parts sweet and seduction. I got too much shit to do. The last thing I need to think about is the actress starring in the biggest movie of my career. I’m not screwing this up. The only thing that derails a movie faster than ego is feelings and fucking, and I suspect with Neevah, you don’t get one without the other."

Such a strong build-up of emotions between Canon and Neevah while they try to resist the strong pull between them. So when love finally does happen you feel the relief along with them. But when life threatening medical issues find their way into their path the story takes a turn that makes your stomach lurch. At this point, you can't put the book down.

Great characters with a winning plot. REEL has so many layers and each are excellently written. I would read this book again and look forward to the next book in the series.

another excellent Mia Sheridan novel

I didn't read or listen to this book right away because it sounded so different from Mia Sheridan's normal novels. However, I'm so glad I finally listened to it. It is excellent. It is not her normal romance novel but still the same excellent writing style.

This is an especially good book if you're getting bored with the same old types of stories.

Had Potential

The storyline was original & well done. I loved the characters & how they were developed, making it easy to like the likeable & want to know more.

Sadly though, the narrator just wasn't right for this story. Her voice acting is just to children book sounding. She made it way to hard to get the emotions to relate to the story. The scary parts or creepy parts were way to high pitched & did NOT fit at all. It's as if she's reading the book to a bunch or 3rd graders, NOT adults!

Many can say, when it comes to audible books no matter how good the story is the narrator can make it break the story. They can even make ppl not even finished a book or stop a person from even purchasing the book. The narrator for this story should do children books, her reading style & voice is more fitting for that gene.

The book aka storyline had great potential to be scary in parts, but I couldn't even get lost in it like most books I listen to. I suggest reading the book & NOT getting this version with this narrator.

I recommend the book, bit I do NOT recommend the narrator at all. (not for this genre at least)

Mia Sheridan’ s Fallen

Wonderful book! Convoluted plot, full range of imagery —from beautiful details of mother-daughter relationship, to suspense, supernatural forces, frank evil, and resilience — the narrators were excellent. I was hooked.

Not a fan of male narrator

I did not care for the male narrator. He sounded very old and his female voice sounded like he was talking through his nose. I did however, enjoy the story which is why I kept listening.

Not my favorite from this author

Mia Sheridan is one of my favorite authors. I absolutely loved Where The Blame Lies and Where the Truth Lives. This book, however, was underwhelming. It took forever for the story to get going even though it was pretty obvious what was happening. I really didn't like the narrators. Overall, I liked the concept of the book but it felt a little unpolished. I don't regret purchasing this book but if you're trying to decide which one to buy, go with Where the Blame Lies and then Where the Truth Lives. Those two are infinitely better.

Great book but…

This book was awesome. I’m a huge fan of Mia Sheridan’s. I have nearly every book of hers’s on audible. I read Fallen first and was excited for audio version. Unfortunately, I was so disappointed in the female narrator that I was more distracted by her unemotional presentation than actually enjoying the story.
I would suggest reading it rather than listening to it.
