Publisher's Summary

Buried deep in a ravine in the picturesque Smoky Mountains is a very dark secret. David Hobbs, vacationing with his wife Miriam, inadvertently stumbles upon a small cloth "keepsake" bag and a broken tooth. A human tooth. Miriam begs David to hand the bag and tooth over to park officials, but he ignores his wife's pleas and secretly keeps the "harmless" items. The action opens a doorway that had been closed for nearly a hundred years and unleashes hell on earth - or at least hell in the lives of David and Miriam.
Following the brutal murder of his best friend in Denver, and an aborted attack on his oldest son, David desperately seeks to understand why a mysterious teenage girl has chosen to terrorize him and the males closest to him. To prevent further devastation to his family and end the wanton bloodshed, he returns to the enchanted hills of eastern Tennessee, where a terrible truth awaits discovery... one that forces him to face the consequences for the unpaid sins of his ancestors.

Just didn't work for me

While the narrator did a fine job...for a guy with an Australian/New Zealand accent, he wasn't at all convincing as a character from Tennessee. The accent and pronunciation of common, everyday words was just off-putting. And the story was amateurish and shallow. I decided on this book on a recommendation of a friend who had read it. Maybe it translates better in the written format, but it just didn't work for me as an audible offering.

A new appreciation for good audio performances.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A professional reader.

Would you be willing to try another book from Aiden James? Why or why not?

Maybe, who's reading?

How could the performance have been better?

How could it not? Not bouncing in and out of American English and British English and accents. Not stopping at the end of a line if it's not the end of a sentence. Performing instead of reading. To name a few.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Story was OK

Any additional comments?

I have read in excess of 500 audio books and I have only stopped reading and put away
2 books that I could not stand. I did not quit on this book only because of my own experiences at Cade's Cove. ( Not of the Supernatural kind )

With the 2 books that I didn't finish the problem was the story itself. With this book I had to fight myself to continue because of the reader. I honestly cringed hundreds of times listening to him.
