Publisher's Summary

Dexter LeGrasse thought he was lucky to be alive. He was wrong. The only survivor of a plane crash over the Atlantic, he finds himself washed up on an uninhabited island. Dazed, dehydrated and desperate to escape, he will have to use all his wits just to stay alive in a strange and unforgiving environment. But when he discovers an ancient ruin, he unwittingly unleashes an unstoppable evil and his nightmare truly begins. Primal, merciless and fueled by a burning hatred, the creature has a hunger that must be appeased. It hunts Dexter wherever he goes, driving him to the edge of his own sanity, and with time running out and no place left to hide it's escape...or die. A heart-pounding chase across lethal terrain, Maldición splices the rush of a survival thriller with the twisted creations of HP Lovecraft to create a man versus monster tale unlike any other.

    Story
    "Garbage. The narrator is the only redeeming factor"

    Bought this book on a whim- what a waste of a credit. The story, character development, plot are tired and poorly developed. The "monster" was far fetched and described within a paragraph or two. Little backstory to the village or why there was an island pyramid.

    The narration was a treat though. Very well done, the only addition of suspense.

    Just don't.

    "Wow"

    This was fantastic, very well thought through short story. I was concerned about the sound effects at first but they were well placed and did good to enhance the story. My only complaint was that at a point or two the effect muffled a word or two. But this was superb :D

    "You're not alone."

    Maldicion by Daniel Marc Chant narrated by Nigel Peever

    Dexter LeGrasse thought he was lucky to be alive.
    He was wrong.
    The only survivor of a plane crash over the Atlantic, he finds himself washed up on an uninhabited island. Dazed, dehydrated and desperate to escape, he will have to use all his wits just to stay alive in a strange and unforgiving environment. But when he discovers an ancient ruin, he unwittingly unleashes an unstoppable evil and his nightmare truly begins.
    Primal, merciless and fuelled by a burning hatred, the creature has a hunger that must be appeased. It hunts Dexter wherever he goes, driving him to the edge of his own sanity, and with time running out and no place left to hide it's escape... ...or die.

    You find yourself marooned on an island after a devastating plane crash. Waiting for help to arrive, you decide to explore the island, finding a source of water and some sparse supplies of food. You might be able to survive until a rescue party finds you. Exploring deeper, you find evidence of primitive civilisation.
    You are alone.
    But you are not alone.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Maldicion. It’s a simple story of a man alone on an island facing off against an ancient evil that is much bigger and stronger than he, with nothing but the contents of a few suitcases and his wits to fight it with.
    At times, it feels like a choose your own survival adventure but without the choices (not a bad thing, because I used to love them) as it moves from dilemma to dilemma, although some of the discoveries feel a little convenient in order to advance the plot, the story is tight and keeps things interesting, which is ideal for the length.
    The narration by Nigel Peevers is fantastic and his dramatically rising tones are suited for this story pefectly
    Mixing up The Twilight Zone, parts of Robinson Crusoe, a dash of LOST, and a slice of Lovecraft mythos, Maldicion is a short read of creeping terror, that plunges the main character into a waking nightmare that they can’t wake up from.

    4/5
