Publisher's Summary

It was only supposed to be a game.

In a boring suburb, three lonely men seeking distractions from their monotonous routines get together in an abandoned house to play a macabre game of show-and-tell.

Nothing is off-limits in their little circle - anything, no matter how depraved, is welcome...so long as it's frightening.

But when one member brings what sounds like an audio recording of an actual murder to a meeting, featuring the tortured screams and pleas of an anonymous woman, the jaded club members find themselves truly rattled.

From that moment, the horrific audio - and strange visions of the recorded victim - begin to seep into their daily lives. Agonized cries and sobs are heard in otherwise empty rooms. Shadowed figures lurk in unlit corners. Somehow, the mysterious victim is reaching out to them from beyond death.

Or is she? Digging deeper, they begin to suspect they're being led back to the abandoned house by something else - something that seeks to consume them, body and soul.

And if they aren't careful, it'll get its way.

Creepy as Hell! A Great Story!!!

Night Society is another Fantastic pairing of Ambrose Ibsen's writing and Joe Hempel's narration! These two are a powerhouse for the creepy and scary as hell psychological type of horror story that will stick with you for days after hearing the story. Once again Mr. Ibsen has written a great story about three men who on a lark go to an old abandon house and bring the scariest, creepiest, weirdest thing they each can find for the first meeting of the Night Society. Gee, what could go wrong? Keeping this review spoiler from I will just say that I was on the edge of my seat for the whole time and had to shut it off a few times to take a break from the story. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Joe Hempel provides some truly bone-chilling narration in this audio-book. The level of desperation he brings to the characters in the later chapters is just freaking scary, sad, and eerie all at the same time. This is one narrator that is the go-to man for horror. He brings it full force.

A high price to pay for a game.

This is a story of three guys who instead of playing cards on Friday night decide to play a game of “who can scare me more.” Each person must bring a photo, video, or story; as long as it will scare the pants off the others. One brings a downloaded recording off the web of a woman, crying and screaming until they believe she is ultimately murdered. This does scare the hell out of them and drives them to find out if the recording is real or not. Thus begins a tale of terror brought to each individual’s doorstep that heard those dreadful cries. It appears as if the murdered woman is calling out to each of them, drawing them to her for some unknown reason. Eventually the trail leads to an abandoned house with a horrific tale of its own. It is here that the truth becomes known and our players realize the price tag of their game.

A good creepy story

I am a fan of both Ibsen and Hempel. This story has more of a short story feel to it but it still an interesting story. I always like how Ibsen creates believable and realistic characters, people that can be like anyone you know and then throws a horrible situation at them and Hempel portrays them well!

Creepy

This is another great horror story by Ambrose Ibsen. Some friends get together at a haunted house and get more than thy bargained for.

The narrator is an excellent storyteller and really kept me entertained and even a little scared.

Well worth a listen to.

Very Creepy!

*** I was given this book for free for an honest review***

This is the second audiobook I have listened to that was written by Ambrose Ibsen and like his first audiobook (Asylum) I enjoyed listening to Night Society. Right from the very first chapter the creepiness commenced and it felt like the more I listened, the more the intensity grew.

The story was good, original and manages to hit all the right spots to get the terror pumping. It starts as a slow burn, the weird happenings going from something easily brushed off, only to escalate further and further. Ambrose Isben really does a great job at setting the scene of a chapter and bringing the horror to life.

Joe Hempel is a great narrator and he really captured the personality of each of the characters brilliantly.

I liked the characters, each had different personalities and so their reaction to the terrifying events were all so different. Mike was the level headed one, Jim the arrogant and mean one and bless Russel's heart, he was the timid one who just wanted to make some friends.


I really enjoyed listening to this book and freaking myself out. I recommend it!

Solid performace, but story comes up a bit short.

I'm a fan of both Ambrose Ibsen and Joe Hempel, and while Joe once again delivers a solid performance, this wasn't one of Ambrose's best stories. While it has his trademark creepiness, I never quite connected with the characters or the story in general. It's a fun horror story, but unlike many of Ambrose's other books, this one didn't really stick with me after I'd finished. Enjoyable, just not a homerun for me. This is one of those times where I wish audible allowed half stars because I'd definitely give the story and overall a score of 3.5, just can't bring myself to rate it higher.

Different Thriller

This is another good horror by author but enjoyed his Afterlife Series and Ulrich Files more. This is about 3 men who decide to do a show and tell game in abandon house (so it seems) to see who presents the best scariest thing. They get more than they bargained for. I felt sorry for all 3. It is a creepy thriller with great narration. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU!!
