Publisher's Summary

Orphaned twins Isabelle and Beatrice Thorn live a glamorous 1920s Hollywood life. They are the wards of Mr. Cecil, a mysterious and influential director, who insists on controlling every aspect of their lives. He made beautiful Isabelle a star and is about to release a horror flick that will showcase her famous scream. Disfigured Beatrice has been commanded to spend her days hidden on the Cecil estate, away from prying eyes and photographers, scarves covering her birthmarks and baldness.

But clever Beatrice's curiosity about the death of her parents, the appearance of scorpion hornets and the unsettling fate of a newspaper man is getting the better of her. She's starting to realize the director has truly dark designs.

Flickers is horror at its finest. A mixture of suspense, heartwarming love and gut-churning fear.

Lights, Camera, and oh yeah, ACTION!

Well folks, this is not your typical Hollywood drama. I loved this story! To me it had a bit of a Hitchcock feel to it but with a humorous flare. The narrators delivery was spot on for the era and pulls you along on a path with twists where you become attached to the characters (for me it was at the start I became enamored with them) Arthur Slade has a knack for pulling me into other dimensions with his writing like the twister taking Dorothy to Oz.( and no, I'm not comparing myself to a teenage girl from Kansas ;-) ) Funny, emotional and a little scary at times, Flickers hits on all cylinders!

An entertaining and unique super natural tale about twins and their ability to survive. Great character development and unfolding of the story.

A fun mystery that hooked me!

This book was really fun for me to listen to. I love Beatrice and her curiosity throughout the book. This book is full of suspense that kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next. The end and answers to the mystery is not so good. Seemed a bit rushed at that point, with too much going on. Overall good. I'm not disappointed that I listened to it because I did enjoy the journey, just not the outcome.

Interesting but breathy

What did you like best about this story?

The story was quite interesting. I love alternate universes intersecting.

Would you be willing to try another one of Edgar Lloyd’s performances?

Doubtful. I swear the man went to the "William Shatner school of acting". It was very breathy, weird pauses.... While the story was good, the performance - especially when he does different character voices- was really horrible

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The story would be something I would like in one setting, but not this narration.

Any additional comments?

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

A strange but fascinating listen

This book was a strange but fascinating listen. I found the narrator a little off-putting, especially at first, but otherwise it was well-written with interesting characters (including the great Beatrice, who I totally related to). I definitely recommend this book to people who like their horror not too scary but a little unusual, or for people who're just looking for something a little different. I'll definitely be listening to/reading more books by this author in future.
