Publisher's Summary

Robbie Cordwood went to jail for killing the three men who raped his wife. He expected to stay there and not get out. That was fine by him. Justice served. But one day the world changed, and THEY came from the stars. Then THEY started taking over peoples bodies, crawling in through the mouth. The prison doors were open, and no one knew what to do next....

Shut those traps!!!

A bug flying into your mouth will definitely take on new meaning after listening to this. lol. Kind of like Body Snatchers vs War of the Worlds. It also reminded me of the star trek episode where those slugs were being put in their ears and they were being controlled. I really enjoyed it. I don't want to spoil it for anyone so I'll just say it was well written and I love how it incorporated past events as well. I'm totally taken aback by the ending....but it's definitely reminiscent of syfy stories/movies so I wasn't surprised. It's a definite must listen for all you syfy lovers out there. Theo Holland just does an amazing job with the narration and character voices. I thoroughly enjoy listening to him and he just brings the story to life for you. I really loved the main characters. I mean how can you not love a man who does anything to protect his wife, and a wife who.....well I can't spoil it so you will just have to listen to find out. The first time he meets the preacher man is pretty cool too!!! It's not a long story....but it's a great story that will leave you with something to remember for sure.

Death to Squids!

Would you consider the audio edition of When They Come for You to be better than the print version?

Didn't read the print version, but I very much enjoyed how Theo Holland brought the various characters to life.

What other book might you compare When They Come for You to and why?

No book comes to mind, but it reminds me of the series "Falling Skies", only darker.

Have you listened to any of Theo Holland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Theo Holland is one of my favorite narrators--- he never disappoints.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was rocked by the ending.
