Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you won a dream holiday?  

For newly-weds Laurelyn and Elijah, it was a dream come true. They could finally have the honeymoon they could never have afforded on their own. Their excitement is tangible as they leave for Spain.  

With their arrival in Spain, they soon realize things aren’t as they should be.  

Instead of a hotel, they are taken to an isolated Asylum. They will be lucky to leave alive.

Book 3

Harvesting an organ in a very weird and gruesome way. Short and quick listen.

Hostel meets Taken

In my mind this played out like the movie Hostel. Different people and different situation, very much like the movie but with a few surprises. As this is only thirty minutes this comes out of the gate quick and to the point. No time to really explore the characters or to connect with them, something that makes it harder to sympathize with their plight. Definitely plays on the fear of watching your family members get hurt. In my mind that aspect was the horrific part, not the actual gore and violence. The lesson learned here is don’t travel internationally unless your father is Liam Neeson.

First time I have heard Smith and he did a good job. I enjoyed his narration voice and his character voices. He added the needed emotion to Elijah’s voice and had an excellent Galtero voice. Hope to come across more of his work

Short overall gory story A+

This was a fun little horror story that was narrated well! Feel like it could have been a longer story even, but I definitely enjoyed it! Will probably check out the other Dark Murmurings books.

Short sweet gory horror

A couple wins a trip too good to be true, which it is. Instead they are kidnapped and taken by a demon and human lackeys for organ harvesting on the black market. Would probably be a good longer story, but it was short and sweet and entertaining. Narrator does a nice job.

A fairly effective horror short

A too good to be true holiday vacation is won by some newlyweds who get a lot more than they bargained for. The horror book is the most effective when it captures something everyone fears in being taken or kidnapped and losing control. It turns to some other darker and more gruesome leanings deeper into the story. A fairly short story that had a few scenes that were fairly effective, but could have definitely used some expanding on elements to make us more than mere spectators to the whole affair.

The narration was decent, but some of the reading did get slightly monotone from time to time, but when people have emotions changing their inflections he is fairly effective, and some the voice for Galtero was quite good. With better production, he could do quite well.

A short story that might be better off in an omnibus of shorts, but all together still a decent short listen.

so short but loved it

This was a very short, but well done horror story. It is very fast, very brutal, and very entertaining. Assuming you are a fan of the horror genre. For what it is, it was great.

Not something I could recommend

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for my honest review, so I must be honest and say I did not find this a worthwhile listen. The premise itself was chilling in that way of myths and urban legends usually are. I found the "reveal" to be boring, and though somewhat imaginitive, also unplausible. Perhaps if a bit of background were given instead of having it all narrated by one of the bad guys, it would have flowed better.

The characters were bland, one-dimensional and barely believable. For as much time was spent showing us how loving of a couple the main characters were, they still came across as shallow imaginings of a love-struck pre-teen.

The narration was decent, though Smith seemed to be a bit one-note as well and tended to display odd inflections and pronunciations here and there. The spooky voice he used for Diablo was pretty good though.

It's a short listen, so normally I'd say "what the heck, go for it", but if you're anything like me, you'll come away feeling that 29 minutes could have been much better spent.

Harvest

Too short but good listen with a vacation of torture. Diablo/Galtero needs to get Elijah’s and Laurelyn’s livers and other organs. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

Decent Horror

This story is good and has some tension. The horror element is there and a bit creepy. The kidnapping is done well and seems plausible. That is definitely the scariest part for me.

Gary Leo Smith did a good job with the narration, but was not exceptional. The pace was a little too slow and some of the inflections seemed a bit too read. Most of the narration was solid, just a few trouble spots.

Such an enthusiastic and crazy story!

Harvest is a quick listen about a young couple who go on a long-awaited vacation only to realize they have been duped and may die. A bit tongue in cheek, but the narrator has an enthusiasm for the story that really brought out the creepiness of the story.

This was actually a lot of fun.

An enjoyable and gripping short story, starting off as a romantic tale, but finishing off with a very dark side and the narrator did an excellent job with several voices.
