Publisher's Summary

Fiery lights are seen in the the small town of Oxrun Station. A series of strange murders, a group of odd, apparently possessed children terrorizing the adults of the town, all serve to make things interesting in the Chinese sense for toy-store-owner Dale and her beau, Vic, who find themselves drawn into a web of ancient intrigue, pitted against powers that were old when the New World was a big, empty garden. A wonderful sequel to The Oxrun Dead, and a perfect example of the quiet horror master storyteller Charles L. Grant was famous for.

Good story with not great narration

I received a free copy of this audiobook and am leaving an honest review in return.

I wanted to like this more than I did. I've listened to audiobooks with worse narrators, but I can probably count them on one hand. It's not that the narrator is a "bad" reader. His voice is pleasant to listen to, possibly to a fault. His narration style isn't quite monotone, but it's close enough that I found myself zoning out pretty often and rewinding to relisten to large sections of the book. This would be a perfectly pleasant book to listen to while drifting off to sleep.

I don't feel like I wasted my time with this book, but I think I'd feel differently if I'd used a credit to buy it. Some books/audiobooks work for some readers, and others don't. For me, this one didn't quite hit the mark.
