Publisher's Summary

A monster has come to Maldus, Arkansas, and the residents of the small mountain town are too busy to notice. With the monster comes something even more terrifying and threatening than gnashing teeth or razor-sharp claws.

The monster has brought change.

The residents of the small mountain town are too busy to notice at first. Busy with things such as addiction, racism, work, or land deals. Unnoticed, the change the monster brings in its insidious wake spreads like wildfire. Unnoticed, the town of Maldus falls prey to an invasive species.

Werewolves in the Manner of King

First off, if you enjoy Stephen King, you will probably enjoy this book. The author is clearly a King fan and the influence is pretty obvious.
I found the ending to be unsatisfying (like some King books I've read), but I suppose it is the journey that matters in tales like these. It's not bad or great, but okay.
Did I enjoy it? No, not really. It is either not my cup of tea or something was lacking to make it enjoyable. Still, I give it 4 stars for the effort.

I received this audiobook for free, and my review is voluntary.

Excellent

The author describes in graffic detail how an entire town turns into warewolves. excellent writing with detailed description. If you have a weak stomach don't even start listening.

The performance by S. W. Salzman adds to the horror of the story. I did, however, have to slow the speed down to listen.

Well done

I really liked this story. Ive only read or listened to a few werewolf stories and I have to say this is one of the better ones. I believe the narration helped bring the characters to life. If you like creature feature type book and shows you will enjoy this story.

the worst narration I've heard in a long time

I'm struggling to get through the first 2 minutes of the first chapter. the plotline is intriguing but this guy sounds like he's reading from a bullet point list and has literally no inflections. some of the sentences seem like run-ons just because of how he's reading. imagine forest Gump reading off a recipe to you.

Could not get past the first five minutes!

The narrator reads as though he is listing ingredients form a cereal box. Almost no inflection and seems to not understand punctuation. Nearly a monotone voice that requires mental translation. I couldn’t even begin to evaluate the story because I had to concentrate on figuring out the narrative rather than listen to the story. Very disappointed.

Amazing Story!

At times the narrator wasn't the best but the story more than made up for it. I'd really recommend this newer horror author to any horror fan. My only complaint is it made me feel old. I'm not used to hearing references to Tim Burton or Leeeeeeeeroy Jennnnnnnkinnnnns in most the stories I listen too. but they were here. All and all its definitely worth a read / listen.
