The horror continues..

We follow Kane, who suffers from PTSD and drinks a lot of alcohol. He meets Poppy who he's determined to help and she also reminds him of his missing sister. Once again we're in a supernatural world of horrors.

It was hard for me to keep my focus on this story and it jumped around a lot with me drifting in and out of my mind while listening to this audiobook. If I should continue this series, I'd prefer to read it.

The narrator Nigel Peever was ok. I liked that he was British, as it is a British story, but he couldn't keep my attention for long. He didn't always sound as he knew what was coming and shifted a lot in his pace. Furthermore, he didn't really have the voice I imagined for a character like Kane.

Narrator was great, but jumpy narrative dinged it

Note: In exchange for an unbiased review, the author, publisher, and/or narrator were kind enough to provide an audio version of this book at no charge via AudiobookBoom.

The narrator did a great job on this. As a new narrator myself, I'm always listening out for how others perform their craft in the hopes that I can pick up something to help me better myself as well. No real complaints here with regard to the narration.

The writing, however, bothered me a little. The story jumped around too much - with the shifts in time jarring to the point that it affected the overall enjoyment of the book. Also, sometimes it was confusing as to what was happening or where it was happening. And the characters didn't feel very fleshed out or even compelling. I understand this was the second book in a series, but I think it was more of a standalone. If I'm mistaken, then perhaps this could partially explain some of the issues I had with the book. But not all of them.

At any rate, the premise was interesting and it certainly had some elements I generally like in a story. But unfortunately, it didn't do an effective job of bringing all those elements together for me.
