This was seriously awesome!! For me, it was the scariest of this authors books, that I've read! I've never liked those porcelain dolls anyway, they creeped me out, but after reading this... well, let's just say that I will never ever own one!! EVER.
Stefan Korzh grew up with his parents focused on buying haunted items. All their attention was focused on their passion and so Stefan was left unattended. Growing up in a house with ghosts made Stefan the way he is!! Now that both his parents have died, Stefan is intent on exacting revenge on people like his parents, people that actively seek out haunted items. So he starts selling off his parents items, all the while gleefully watching the ramifications unfold.
Victor Daniels is at a conference when he gets a call to say his wife committed suicide. Only thing is, his wife was happy and wasn't depressed. In fact, she had only just purchased a lovely old teddy off the internet. Victor is devastated and determined to get answers. What he finds though is a whole nother world!!
I started reading this at night and had to put it aside till the morning because it was creeping me out!!! I don't know if people actually do buy things simply because they think they're haunted, but let me tell you something, it wouldn't be me!!! Nuh uh!! I had nightmares of those nasty dolls turning their faces as I passed, it was horrible!! Anyway, the plot was fast paced and extremely scary. We have a teddy bear, a doll and a teapot. What do these all have in common? Well they are all haunted by homicidal ghosts. These ghosts are some of the worst that were in Stefan's parents collection. It was seriously creepy!!
I loved the characters. Jeremy was intriguing. I need to know more about his story. Victor is awesome. He is intriguing too and I'm really looking forward to learning more about him and his ancestors in future books. I also loved seeing and hearing the lore when they visited NOLA. Let's have more from there!!!
Anyway, this was such a great read. It's perfect for Halloween and is really scary. I can not wait for the next edition to this series!!!
Thom Bowers read this extremely well!! His tones and cadences really brought the story to life, and he gave me chills when he was the toys. Highly recommend.
I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

I was given an ARC for a honest review.
I LOVED this audiobook. Absolutely could not stop listening! All of the characters are engaging and you will find yourself fully invested in their stories. It was great to have a story which focused on the secret society so to speak of haunted collectors. Most times stories are primarily about the haunted objects themselves and very rarely do you get to be inside the heads of those who actively seek out these artifacts. I thoroughly enjoyed this point of view!
I was a little disappointed with the abrupt ending because I just HAVE to know what happens next but I will just have to anxiously await the next installment!
