Publisher's Summary

Maggie Olsen had a pretty ordinary childhood - swimming and sleepovers, movie nights and dad jokes. But then there were the other things...the darker things...the shadow that followed her home from the cemetery and settled into the corners of her home, refusing to let her grow up in peace.

Now, after three years of being away from the place she's convinced she inadvertently haunted, and after yet another family tragedy strikes, Maggie is forced to return to the sweltering heat of a Savannah summer to come to terms with her past. All along, she's been telling herself it was just in your head, and she'd nearly convinced herself that she'd imagined it all. But the moment Maggie steps into the foyer of her family home, she knows. The darkness is still there. And it's been waiting for Maggie's return....

Great if you're in the 8th grade!

I usually really enjoy Ania Ahlborn and i have read the majority of her books. They are creepy and unsettling. Pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. However, I thought this book was terrible. Everything about it. It was impossible to get past the monotone narration. I kept listening thinking the book itself would redeem the narrator. It never did. She spoke in blocks of words. It was impossible for me to like the character, because of it. Having said that, the book was incredibly predictable and reminded me of something I would have read in the 8th grade that would have scared me. I feel awful writing such a bad review. Honestly though, don't waste your time or your credit on this one.

Worth the read

I loved the performance and I thought this book was chilling and disturbing in a good way! There are few books I have listened to that I like more than this one!!! Definitely a favorite

Loved the book, not the reader.

I love all of Ania’s works but the reader on this one wasn’t it for me. Very little depth in the way she reads it started to feel almost monotone. Loved the experience and the story but I was a little put off by the tone of the narrator.

My last book from this author

It took so long for this book to get interesting about seven or eight chapters and just when I thought it was gonna get interesting it didn’t. This is probably my fourth book from this author I know a lot of people like her it’s just not for me every time I’ve listened to one of her books it’s the same thing very slow and then doesn’t amount in my expectations and she has awful narrators every time except for RC Bray. Sorry just not for me

Mono tone

I enjoyed the story but the narrator almost made me not listen to the whole story. When performing the dialogue, the narrator is very good. The story telling is mono tone. Great story though.

Creepy and Delicious

It’s a slow burn . It makes you doubt what you think . It makes you believe Maggie for a bit . It confuses and befuddles . It’s tense and stressful. It’s a tasty morsel of an audible book that is creepy and well written as well as wonderful to hear.

would have preferred to read

i enjoyed the story as any Ahlborn I've read but the narrator took away the slow burning creepiness I get when I read her tales.

i call upon thee!

4.5

i loved this book! I could relate so much to Brynn, well during my teenage years at least. i guess i should apologize to my little sister for always trying to scare her and making her watch scary movies (she doesn't like them now). All the characters were great in their own way. The story was great and i really loved the ending. if your looking for something scary to read for Halloween, this is IT!
the only reason i didn't give this a 5 star rating is that i felt near the end, things got a little messy. maybe i zoned out for a minute or something, i don't know.

Great story but...

For some reason when the author mispronounced common words, it distracted me from the story.

What happened, Ania?

I love Ania Ahlborn's books, but this is a solid thumbs down.
It sounds like something she wrote in high school. I really expected better.

All over the place

This is the first Ania Ahlborn book I've listened to and disappointed to say that I didn't love it. The story was all over the place, felt rushed in places and dragged out in others. I can't believe that this book has so many high reviews, it got very messy towards the ending and it was a chore to keep listening.

I was hoping for a scary read but this failed to hit the mark. Unlikely I would listen to another book by Ahlborn.
