Publisher's Summary

2015 Readers Choice Award Winner in Paranomal Fiction
In 1989 Karl Blaine and his wife Fiona traveled to Nepal to climb Mt. Everest with their college friend Zachary. Only Zachary came back alive. Two decades later, in 2009, a French climbing expedition discovers Karl's frozen remains. Of the five man party who finds Karl, only the Sherpa guide makes it down alive. He brings with him a whooper of a ghost story no one can believe.
When a much older Zachary is notified of this discovery, it sets off a dangerous chain of events that puts Zachary and Karl and Fiona's son, Derrick, on a collision course. What did Karl have in his possession when he disappeared? What really happened in 89? Can what the Sherpa guide reported really be true? And one other question.... Is Fiona Blaine still entombed at the top of the world?

Good Story, Terrible Narration

The plot/story is really interesting, filled with action and good characters but the narration just does not fit. It's slow, boring, and hard to differentiate between characters, especially female characters. The novel is written in first person point of view so that makes the narration even more difficult to listen to - if it was told in a different way, the narration might work but unfortunately it really takes away from the story. I found myself having to stop and go back more than once because I was lost.

I would absolutely recommend the print version of this book but I'd advise to stay away from the audiobook.

Great story but excruciatingly boring narration.

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The book is actually fairly well written and is full of interesting mythos and exciting adventure. The narrator was SO dull to listen to. It really just sounded like someone reading aloud. He had barely any inflection, all characters sounded the same because the narrator didn't appear to even attempt different voices. Had the story not been interesting, there is no way I would have finished this one. As it was, I almost didn't until the action began. I'd recommend sticking to print on this one.
