Publisher's Summary

An experiment in terror pushed him to his limits, but now Subject B is fighting back. His name is Marcus Holt. He is a fighter, a survivor, and a decorated combat veteran. But to the sadistic professor Abel Worthe, Marcus is known merely as "Subject B" - a pawn in the scientist’s inhumane experiments. Worthe is an expert in the study of death and fear. And he intends to push Marcus to the limits of human endurance.

Trapped in the shadowy streets of a haunted village, Marcus and his young friend Alex must deal with a new threat: the ghost of a vicious murderer who kills with a bloody mason’s hammer. Their task is made even harder when two new subjects, a bickering couple, are added to their group, drawing the wrathful spirit right to them. 

As Marcus and the others struggle against this supernatural horror, Professor Worthe observes the psychological effects of their extreme terror. But Marcus Holt is a soldier. And he’s not going down without a fight. 

Professor Worthe is about to learn that a caged animal is the most dangerous subject of all....

Amazing!!

I listened to this ages ago but forgot to review it....(well i thought I had but obviously not!!!) Anyway, book 2 sees the overall plot starting to get darker and it's even better than the first.

The haunted town has two new inhabitants in the form of a husband and wife duo who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. They are being kept in a container till the house they will enter is ready and Marcus is determined to help them if he can. As I said, the plot of this is darker and things happen that made me shudder because it shows that humans can be just as nasty as anything out there. Also the ghost in this case likes to kill with a hammer, need I say more!!

As with all of Ron Ripley's books, this was amazing. It's fast paced, creepy and intense. Able Worthe is a psycho and I don't think I could hate him anymore than I already do!! I'm loving that we are seeing more of the people who work for him too. Those characters are hard to figure out but it's nice to see an insight into some of them. I'm also loving Marcus and his friendship with Alex.

In all, this series is starting to become a favourite of mine. I'm intrigued to see where it's going and can't wait to read more.

Thom Bowers is as amazing as always. I remember listening to him way back when ;) and listening to him now shows how much he has grown as a narrator. He has such an amazing array of voices for the characters and always brings the atmosphere to life.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Great

Excellent narration and well written stories. Scare Street horror stories are great and the Ron Ripley ones are the best.

Another Awesome Addition to a New Favorite Series!

So far there isn't a book written by Ron Ripley (or the other Scare Street Authors) that hasn't been added to my Favorite Reads collection. This new series has fast become a favorite and I especially loved seeing a Favorite character (Shane Ryan) from his Berkeley Street series making a cameo in this book. Enough bird walking and on to my actual review: The storyline was well thought out, the characters fleshed out with enough detail so you can form an attachment with them (so you either in a Love or Hate them. As I currently own an Audible copy I can't review pacing, typos, or sentence structure because Audible copies are based on the orators interpretation, one still connects to a character as events unfold. Based on the emotional attachments the storyline creates, I was definitely rooting for loved characters while wishing death and dismemberment upon the unlikable ones. Highly Recommended.

On a Personal Note, while I originally Purchased this title in Audible format, for favorite reads I often purchase the Hard & Ebook copies too (all in support of a favorite author/book), this installment and series definitely fits that category.

A great scary story

This is the 2nd book in the Haunted Village series. It focuses on another house the Able Worthe (a psycho) adds to his collection. The storyline is starting to get darker. The main characters are a husband and wife who are kept in a container until the house is ready. You have a ghost that likes to kill with a hammer. This book has enough blood and gore along with scary ghosts to keep you on the edge of your seat. This book leaves you wanting more yet it is not a cliffhanger. Thom Bowers does a great job with narration. I recommend this book.

Bonus Chapters!!

It really needs a bonus chapter, much like his other books, where we learn more about the ghosts life, and death. Hoping book 3 has this most favourite aspect!

Thumbs up

Done done it again wow great read and Abel is really starting to get on my last nerve though I am learning a little bit more about him and seeing what makes him tick. I was happy to see Shane though and was glad to see a bond between Marcos and Alex and an glad Elaine is still around as well check out the series you won't be sorry you did.

Great and creepy book!

Ever hear the phrase it takes a village to raise a child? Well, not this village! It’s full of violent ghosts and is owned and run by a physically ill psychopath who thought nothing of kidnapping a child and killing his family in the previous book. now, Marcus has to keep little Alex safe from the ghosts, but Alex is learning to hold his own against them. this was a great book, and I’ve already started on the next.

Thrilling

One of the things I most enjoy about Ron Ripley’s books is he has characters you love to hate. Slimy, despicable people who also often have a nasty habit of having valid points or feeling reasonable emotions for their fate. The ghost was awesome, and I thoroughly enjoyed our introduction to Subjects E and F.
