Don't talk to strangers....

Faced with his parents' divorce, 11-year-old Lucas runs away from home in the hope that his family will get back together to find him. While walking through the empty streets, he is picked up by a mysterious woman who offers to take care of him and provide him with a loving family.

The boy then wakes up in shackles, confined to a bed in a decrepit house in the middle of nowhere and will have to face his deepest fears in order to survive in his new home.

Join Lucas in a desperate attempt to get back to his family in Madhouse, the first published audiobook from horror-thriller author Miguel Estrada.

Don't Run Away From Home

I have never wanted to run away from home. I have known people who have and while they seemed to have fun for a few days eventually they had to go back home and face the consequences. Have to say this reaffirms my decision to never do that.
The story is quick, but pedal down the whole way. Would say this follows the typical abduction story and since it is packed into a two hour story it engages you quick and keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way. As should be expected with such a short story there isn’t much for character development, but you do develop a relationship with Lucas quickly. There is a huge twist at the end that changes how you feel about everything you listened to.
Zak does a great job. Good character voices and made for a pleasant listen to a not so pleasant story.

No, Seriously, Don't Talk to Strangers!

Nothing like a good child abduction story to get the blood pumping! A quick listen, 'Madhouse' is an enthralling and cautionary tale that any horror fan would be silly to miss. Miguel Estrada surprised and delighted me; I'm thoroughly impressed by his ingenuity here. Zak Price absolutely nails the performance on this one, too. From top to bottom, this is just a really good one. I wouldn't miss it if I were you!

Delightfully twisted!

Miguel Estrada's Madhouse is a delightfully twisted short story that will keep you engaged from start to finish and can easily be listened to in a single sitting. Thoroughly enjoyable, I will definitely be looking out for more of his work in the future. Likewise, Zak Price's narration was excellent. His voice is perfectly suited for the tone of the piece, and I hope he narrates more horror stories in the future.

I was on the edge of my seat

Zak Price is an amazing narrator. His voice and the way he read this book had me so in to it I just set in my chair. This was my first book by Miguel Estrada but it will not be my last.

Great, but too short

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a short but intense horror story. It is well narrated and kept me riveted the whole time. I just wish it was a full length novel. I loved the plot twist ending, though. I really didn't see it coming. Definitely recommend!

Twisted enough for me!

Lucas runs away from his home to teach his parents a lesson. He soon meets a nice but strange lady who takes him home with her and soon he's steeped in her home of horrors. The sick and depraved situations this author thought to write into this story are very creative. i admire the talent and the twist at the end.

This is something of a cautionary tale but not for children to read. The story is a quick listen and flows well with a large helping of suspense at every turn. I cringed several times and had a hard time pulling myself away until the book ended. The narrator does a great job with pacing and tone. The characters are vibrant, although, not the kind you want to meet.

This is an swesome horror thriller for the reader who craves twists!

Didn't see that end coming at all!

Madhouse by Miguel Estrada was crazy. It was unexpected. It was twisted...and fun! Lucas is trying to save his parents marriage and decides to run away, hoping that focusing on his disappearance will bring them together again. He doesn't plan on really running away, just hiding out for a little bit. Well, he meets a strange lady and wakes up shackled in the titular Madhouse. The man and woman living in the madhouse are quite literally mad and Lucas has to do everything he can to escape and make it back home to his parents without getting killed. This was a fun, fast paced and horror filled short story with a twist that I didn't see coming at all.

Zak Price did a great job narrating this crazy tale. He made it easy to settle right into the story and I'd happily listen to more of his narrations in the future. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.
