Publisher's Summary

Kristy Duncan has a secret - a burning secret.
Eighteen-year-old Kristy has a happy life with her foster parents and close friends at school, but she is not safe from the horrors of her past. She can't remember her birth mother or receiving the severe burns across her chest, but as her nightmares grow worse, her trauma-induced amnesia begins to clear, and she slowly remembers the apocalyptic suicide cult deep in the Everglades. As Kristy's friends and acquaintances begin to meet strange and horrible deaths by fire, Kristy learns that the homicidal cult leader has returned - from beyond the grave - to claim his last remaining child.

Horrible narrator

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

The biggest thing that stood out about this audiobook was how absolutely horrible narrator is. 30 seconds and I was grimacing at the thought of having to listen to a whole two hours of that. His voice is grating and he enunciates words so emphatically it's distracting. I tried to pay attention to the audiobook itself, and the story did seem to be nice and creepy. But the narrator was so distracting it was very hard to pay attention. I think that this was probably a very good book. And one that I would have much preferred to have actually read rather than listen to. In the end I could not get past the narrator.

Burn Baby Burn!

Where does Cypress Creek rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is by far the best horror book I have listened to so far, and I am a big horror genre fan. This is well written with compelling characters, and it is scary. Very scary. I was hesitant to light candles for several weeks after reading this story.

What other book might you compare Cypress Creek to and why?

I don't think there is a book you can compare it to. It has supernatural, religious, and horror elements but in a unique mix. The scenes are graphic, gritty and realistic. You can smell the smoke. You can taste the fear.

What does Adam Zens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hearing a story is always more terrifying than reading it. Audio books bring back the lost art of story telling. Listening to this story is like sitting around the campfire listening to a master story teller tell a scary tale. Adam Zens' voice is a perfect match for the story. It feels like an authentic part of the story--the story in living color or rather sound.

Who was the most memorable character of Cypress Creek and why?

I'd say it is a toss up between the Pastor--a charismatic yet sinister zealot and Mr. Walker--a tortured brooding soul.

Any additional comments?

This is an exceptional book. It you enjoy the horror genre, you will love this book. Obviously, not for children. You'd scare them to death. Probably best for the older teen or adult.
