A spooky, thrilling, jaunt through the paranormal

The Mayhem Children is a spooky, thrilling, jaunt through the paranormal. I loved the detailed descriptions and could just picture the horror. The narrator, Tom Jordan did a great job delivering a multitude of spine-tingling voices that made this book a real thrill. Five stars!

Worth the listen

While I did enjoy this book a lot, there wasnone question which seemed to be left unanswered to me. From the story I can guess at the answer, but I am the type of person who likes things to wrap up all neat and tidy. Still worth listening to.

Solid narration, wish the conclussion was more

I love a good horror book. I also love listening to a new (to me) author and narrator. I enjoyed the story. It was a bit creepy. I really liked the storyline and the paranormal level was strong in this story. It was a pretty fast-paced story. There was several characters but I never felt like it was too much to keep up with. I was a bit bummed out with the ending. I guess I had it built up in my head that it was going to be this demon vs human epic battle… it wasn’t. So I was a bit let down with the ending.

The narrator Tom Jordan did a good job with the story. He was able to excel with the demons voice but not really the children’s voices… however, I appreciate the narrator not approaching something he may not have felt like he could have pulled off. Jordan did a pretty great job with building up the tense feelings and making the listener see the unbelievable!

A solid ghost story

Now, if you like a good ghost story, try this book. The story is ok, perhaps not perfect, but good. What makes this audiobook great is the narration - it's live, vivid and vibrant, the voice is simply fantastic and it makes you wanting for more!

satanic panic!!

first of all, thank you so much to Tom Jordan for a copy of this audio book. Tom narrates it and does such a great job. This is the first thing I've ever listened to or read by Paul Seiple. i think it's safe to say he is a horror fan! From the character's names to details about people and places. First thing, as soon as you hit play- SATANIC PANIC!! and then the story just gets better. i don't want to spoil anything but you have satanist, black magic, curses, hauntings, and at the end!! African folklore is mentioned. if there is a book 2, i want it now!! Especially if it's about that said creature.

Such a great listen! Very well written, enough going on to keep you interested throughout, great characters and fantastically narrated by Tom who’s able to really express the mood and suspense with some great character voices! Really hope there’s more in the pipeline!
This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.
