    "Sad,funny and scary"

    This novella is sad, funny and scary all at the same time. It is a continuation of Death Knocks series expanding the story of Marcus, an ex-stoner turned Black-Eyed-Kid by a secret government organization. You can not help but like Marcus' character, he is funny and appealing but your heart breaks for his losses and the life that has been forced on him. It gives us I site into his thought, back story on what happened to him and also hints of what the gang might face in the future from Level 6. This audiobook has the same excellent narrator as Death Knocks and he once again does a great job of bringing the book to life and infusing personality into the characters. It is a fast entertaining novella but you will get more from it if you read the first book in the series first

    "BEK's never disappoint"

    This is a awesome novella on the back story of Marcus and what happened during that blank time when he became a BEK (black eyed kid), even though his turning did not exactly go as planned, and now he still doesn't want to be BEK and is resisting. Despite the urges Marcus, with Astid there to help, isn't going to bend to Level Six's will and be what he knows he is not. But he will use some of his new found abilities for good, like scaring his little brother and his friends into not using drugs.

    This was a really good back story, and you got to learn a lot about Marcus, his dreams and what he was really like, not just what he portrayed on the outside and that was special. Jeff Simpson the audiobook narrator does a awesome Marcus and that made this book the much special. This novella still had the action and suspense that you are used to from this series so no worries, the BEK's never disappoint.

    "Great Read"
    Any additional comments?

    Marcus by Miranda Hardy and Jay Noel is a great book in the Death knocks series. Marcus' life has drastically changed after he is turned into a black eyed kid. He can never return home to his family or friends. This story follows him as he tries to make sense of everything. I can't wait to read the rest of this series. This is an author I highly recommend and I can't wait to read more by her.

    "Deeper look into Marcus"

    Marcus comes across in the first book as a drug using loser who is not very bright. This book gives more insight into him. Marcus is not as dumb as he acts, nor as carefree. He actually has a moral code. Marcus also provides a look into level 6 what they did to him and the other dangerous thing they created.

    "Great listen!"
    Which character – as performed by Jeff Simpson – was your favorite?

    Marcus. Mr. Simpson gives Marcus a surfer attitude and voice. Love it!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, Marcus' first kill.


    Any additional comments?

    Marcus takes up about 2/3 the way through book 1 of Death Knocks, a TA/YA urban legend fantasy. I really like Marcus's character. He is required to learn to deal with his new life as a dark eyed kid (DEK) including feeding. Marcus has a recreational drug use past, loves using the word shiitake, and has a strong protection streak for his family and friends. Marcus is a short novelette great for an hour commute ! Mr. Simpson did an excellent job narrating.
