Publisher's Summary

True Detective meets H.P. Lovecraft in this chilling novel of murder, mystery, and slow-mounting dread from acclaimed author Mary SanGiovanni....
It begins with a freak snowstorm in May. Hit hardest is the rural town of Colby, Connecticut. Schools and businesses are closed, powerlines are down, and police detective Jack Glazier has found a body in the snow. It appears to be the victim of a bizarre ritual murder. It won't be the last.
As the snow piles up, so do the sacrifices. Cut off from the rest of the world, Glazier teams up with an occult crime specialist to uncover a secret society hiding in their midst.
The gods they worship are unthinkable. The powers they summon are unstoppable. And the things they will do to the good people of Colby are utterly, horribly unspeakable....

Better than I hoped.

In the rural town of Colby, Connecticut, a freak snowstorm happens in May. That in itself is weird enough, but when you add in what seems to be ritualistic killings and other.....things happening, it's put Jack Glazier on edge. Along with his other officer Reece Teagan, they call in an occult expert Kathy Ryan to help with the investigations.

This book was so much better than I hoped!! I had read some great and not so great reviews on it, and went in with no expectations at all, and I devoured it!! The absolute best thing about this is the creepy atmosphere the whole way through. I felt on edge while reading, and that to me is the sign of a great thriller/horror read!

The plot wasn't really fast paced, but it held steady and ramped up the tension with each chapter. I was drawn in right from the start and it held my attention till the end. I loved the fact that it's set during a blizzard because that always adds tension, but this author added in some weird ass flesh eating monsters, and it made for awesome reading.

The characters weren't as fleshed out as I like, but I actually didn't mind. They were charismatic enough to make it easy to like all of them. I usually can easily pick a favourite character when I read a book, but not here, I liked them all!!!

In all, this book was seriously good. I started the book too late and didn't want to put it down, but my eyes were starting to close so I had to! I picked it up the next day and devoured it. I will definitely have to check out more from this author.

Chris Abell was easy to listen to and had plenty of tones and voices for the characters, and I do have to say that his Irish accent was really good, the problem I had with him was that he didn't bring the atmosphere to life completely. I wanted more tenseness from him, especially when the creatures were involved! Other than that it was an awesome performance.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts

Under the Ice-Dome

I started out really liking the book. Enjoyed the tension, the mystery, the crazy creatures, and the story line. Seemed to kinda fizzle for me at the end. I just felt like the buildup was so magnificent and the finale didn't deliver the way the story wanted it to. Wanted more of the creature feature than occultists standing around in a circle chanting to old gods.
I enjoyed Mary's writing style and I am looking forward to seeing more from her. She clearly has a great imagination and tells stories well.

Chris did a fantastic job. Enjoyed his character voices, his attempt at an Irish accent - reminded me of Fat Bastard, and the Gaelic reading. He definitely made this story better.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
