Critic Reviews

“With the combination of an ancient Celtic myth and the legend of the Headless Horseman, Blackwell's story is a leave-the-light-on kind of page turner... If you like suspenseful thrillers, check out A Soul to Steal." (Indie Reader - Featured on USA Today Books)

Brian Gill gives voice to a great story

While many would wait till the fall for a good ghost story, I bought the audio version of 'a soul to steal' to re-read a favorite this spring. I love the story an was most impressed with the voices and emotions Mr Gill gave the characters. This is a great performance of an interesting story.

Excellent story - not what one expects at first.

What did you like best about this story?

Highly engaging. The slow transition from a semi-typical serial killer to a highly unusual supernatural thriller (based on Irish mythology and early American goth horror) worked very will surprisingly. I would not have thought so had someone cursorily told me about it, yet it does.

Have you listened to any of Brian J. Gill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Gill is excellent in his performances of both of Backwell's novels. His accents are believable and he nails the nuanced vocal inflections that this text sometimes demands.

Who was the most memorable character of A Soul to Steal and why?

Quinn and Kate are both highly likable characters. Their goodness and edginess is a combination that works well for me.

Any additional comments?

Strongly recommended.

Enjoyable, keeps you guessing.

Where does A Soul to Steal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This ranks quite high in my listens. It's fairly original and well written. The characters are believable and all add to the story.

What did you like best about this story?

Trying to guess who Lord Halloween is, it becomes obvious just before you find out but there is plenty to put you off track earlier on.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The fortune teller science was one of the best scenes, and was things said fell into place as story progressed.

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

Possibly 2 or 3 for me. But that' probably says more about me than the book!

Any additional comments?

If you like an original story with a few twists then I suggest giving this a chance. I would gladly get another book by this author.

Very enjoyable find!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

For those who like “who done it” style crime books and horror, then this is the perfect combination of both genres. With great characters and pace, this story pulls you in from the start until the end.I listened to the book in two days. I only found this book after a two for one offer but am so please I chose to download. If I had to compare this to another author then Dean Koontz comes to mind......his better work!

What about Brian J. Gill’s performance did you like?

He did a fantastic job.....!! No silly female voices and his portrayal of the killer was creepy without going to over the top!
