Publisher's Summary

The Barner family relocates to Cold Hollow, a quaint town nestled in a Vermont mountain range. They find it to be quite charming, and the inhabitants endearing, except for a few residents. Odd laws are enforced, confrontations begin, and insanity reigns as a madman sits upon his imaginary throne, trying to keep the threads of his dream from unraveling. Will Sophia and Angus Barner be able to protect their children from the malevolence that lurks within the small township? This is the story of a place you'll never want to visit.

Creepily good!

This was such a creepy and engaging read! I started listening to it and had a tough time taking out the ear phones cause I needed to see what would happen next.

When The Barner family relocates to Cold Hollow, they think it's an idealistic little place to live but their attitudes soon change when they realise that not all is as it seems. While there may be a few odd people living there, it's the mayor of the town that really gives the town a weird feeling. What is going on in this town?

The plot of this is so creepy. I always find a book set in a tight knit small town creepy anyway but add in even shadier characters and you have the recipe for a great book. The author does this one justice. The settings is perfect but what makes it even better are the characters and the feeling you get that things are not at all what they seem. You just know that something is coming!!

The characters were all well written and developed. The Barner family are like any other family trying to settle into a small community. My heart went out to them when they were realising that something was happening.

The author isn't afraid to take a risk, and what a risk it was!! I didn't see that coming and my heart was in my mouth!!

In all, a nail bitter and edge of your seat read. I loved everything about it and will definitely be checking out more of this authors work.

J. Scott Bennett did a great job with the narration. I had no problem following who was talking at any given time. He was also well able to ramp up the tension when needed. I thoroughly enjoyed his performance and will be checking out other works read by him.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affects my thoughts.*

A gripping tale with great surprises

This is a gripping, creepy and unique audiobook. Cold Hollow on the surface appears to be just a normal rural town; promising the Barner family the safety and comfort that small town life usually brings, but all is not what it seems. Not only is that safety a façade, but the whole town seems to be riddle with secrets. This story has lots of twists and turns that you will not be able to guess at. Your heart will bleed for some of the characters and others you will want to shoot. The author and narrator draw you into the story and hold you tight in its grip to the very last page. The narrators voice fits the characters well, portraying the increasing tension and generally enhanced the story. This is a thrilling, fast paced story that you won’t be able to stop listening to, it is brutal, compelling and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I received the audiobook in exchange for my honest opinion.
