Publisher's Summary

Seven hundred years ago the Anasazi people built massive cities in what is now the Southwestern United States... and then they vanished.
Stella, an archaeologist specializing in Anasazi culture, and David, a mysterious Navajo boy, are on the run from something terrifying. As they flee up into the snowy mountains of Colorado, they are carjacked by criminals. Caught in a blizzard, they must take refuge in what they believe is an abandoned cabin. It's at this cabin that they will face horrors beyond their imagination.

Chilling tale but bad editing!

Any additional comments?

This book could of been 5 stars, and it should of been, if it had a good editor!!! The story itself was chilling and engrossing but I found it hard to listen to because of the writing. Eg. When Stella is in the cabin and she is on about her purse, she uses the word purse about 10 times in the same paragraph!! It was so annoying. That happened quite a lot which dampened my whole enjoyment of the book!! Other than that, I loved this book!!

The plot of this was fast paced and intense!! We get swept away with the action right from the get go, and it's a non stop, edge of your seat, shiver inducing read. I mean, when you have a creepy secluded cabin, a snow storm, something killing off people, well we already have a recipe for a winner!

The characters were all well developed. I loved Stella and her sense of right and wrong. She protected David no matter what, and I admired that. Now David was kind of creepy with his "he's out there" but it was so much more frightening coming from a kids mouth.

In all this was a creepy and chilling read and one I hope gets a bit more editing done to!! If it did, it would be incredible. I thoroughly enjoyed the suspense and intrigue and the moments that had shivering and will definitely check out more by this author.

Teri Schnaubelt was fantastic. She gave the right amount of tenseness when needed and had me biting my nails in anticipation! She gave each character their own uniqueness and brought the story to life! I need to check out more by her and she is on my narrator to watch list.

yes definately


Any additional comments?

Suprisingly different audiobook.
This is a rather scary tale, that slowly builds up ,keeps you wondering where it is going and gradually sucks you into a crescendo of creepiness.
This is a book you could easily imagine as a film, the story telling was very visual. I found myself seeing the the scenes as I was listening.
Really good narration by Teri Schnaubelt.
Thumbs up all involved.
