Fantastic audio production!

What a fantastically done audio! It's rare when I get the pleasure of listening to an audio that is a full production and I must say I love it! There was so much that I enjoyed, the voices, the extra production noises added in, it was marvelous. I feel that all of this added so much to the story. Like for instance when they are in the mine you can hear their voices start to have that echo like quality. When people are walking or riding horses or on a carriage all those extra noises are added. It made the audio so much more enjoyable for me!

As for the story it was also quite fun. The characters are believable and I just adore Sam. He seems like the type of person that you definitely want in your corner because he is just so willing to fight for his friends. Clara was my all time favorite and seemed the most believable of them all. Although Sam is a really close second. And Edwin was also really fun to listen to. His obsession with rock candy mirrors my own! Now I'm craving it!

A blur of western and horror that had me on edge.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Phantom Canyon is honestly one finest horror masterpieces I've had the pleasure of experiencing. The story flows perfectly into the format of an audio drama, allowing your imagination to create the perfect mixture of fascination and apprehension. Geoffrey Thorne, Jeffrey Bridges and Susan Bridges come together to weave a story of love, loss, danger and suspense, that has never been seen in Horror or Western before.

After the local mine collapses, Blacksmith Sam (Pete Milan) returns home to Crooked Creek, Colorado at the behest of his childhood sweetheart, Rebecca (Darian Lindle). The town has become overrun with an affliction, turning warm, friendly folk into cruel, cold monsters. With Rebecca's blind daughter Clara (Barbra Dillon) and Sam's fool apprentice Edwin (Phil Dawson) in tow, they set out to find a way out of the Phantom Canyon.

The actors truly bring their best to the words, sounding as if they've stepped out of 19th century Colorado. For not recording in the same space, they have an amazing chemistry between them; Lindle and Dillon even sound like an actual mother and daughter. As their characters go through the gauntlet of emotions, they rise to the challenge.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Clara, played by Barbara Dillon, is someone who could have easily been a weak, pathetic character. Instead she's capable, intuitive and while she occasionally feels afraid, she still acts in spite of that fear.


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

The actors, sound effects, and music all work together to evoke emotions from you as you listen to it. Several times I found myself actually caring about the character, and worrying about what they were experiencing.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wound up listening to it in one sitting, I honestly wanted to find out what happened next.


Any additional comments?

My favorite line: "God's cold hand done touched them all."
