Publisher's summary

"You should not have answered its call...."

Professor Stephen Barlow is no longer a skeptic. Having faced the horrors of Chaythe Asylum, he turns his attention to the man responsible for the Third Ward Incident - the enigmatic Dr. Corvine - in the hopes of finding answers to his many questions.

But some things, he soon learns, are better left lost to history.

Traveling to a remote cabin in Michigan in search of the doctor and his research, Stephen finds himself descending deeper into a world of terror and madness. He and his students uncover the frightful truth about Corvine's experiments and realize that they may have unleashed something terrible in their meddling.

Forest is the second novel in the Afterlife Investigations trilogy.

Can you hear them?

Forest is another wonderful Ambrose Ibsen book narrated by Joe Hempel. This one is the second book in The Afterlife Investigations and is part of a trilogy. I would definitely recommend reading the first book in the series, Asylum, before reading this one, as there is a really good backstory to the trilogy and, well, I think it just really completes the story for the reader more. This time around, Prof. Barlow and Jake are on the hunt to find/save Elizabeth and learn more about what really happened to Dr. Corvine and the whole story behind Chaythe Asylum.

I have become a HUGE fan of Ambrose Ibsen's work as well as Joe Hempel's narration. I know that they are a consistent duo that will be worth the price or credit every time. Mr. Ibsen continues to create, fun, creepy, totally unique stories that I listen to pretty much nonstop until I finish them. Pairing Joe Hempel's narration, well, it pretty much makes listening such an easy thing to do that I can almost see the movie playing as Joe narrates. Only thing that drive me nuts in this book was the hand full of times that Mackinac was pronounced completely wrong. It was pronounced 'Mack-eh-knack,' when it should be pronounced 'Mack-eh-naw.' But hey, if that is the only negative, then they still rate 5 stars for this audiobook.

I cannot wait for the third book in the series to come out on Audible, The Occupant. Ambrose, if I can make one suggestion?? Please make your books longer. You're such a creative writer in a genre where there are so few truly new ideas, and, well, I wish they lasted longer!
