Publisher's Summary

In Mayfield, Delaware, the carnival is in town. Seventeen-year-old Lexi Cartwright, daughter of the local deputy sheriff and leading lady of her high school drama club, expects nothing more from her weekend than a few hours of fun, and perhaps a kiss from Eddie Ross.
But for Lexi - and for the rest of the 11th Hour Players - the real monsters aren't in the Pavilion of the Unusuals, and the real terror isn't on the Ferris wheel. It's lurking in the Funhouse. Meet the family. Casper's family.
On Friday night, they will disobey their orders. They will incur the wrath of the Cabal, and they will be destroyed...unless, before the sun rises on Sunday morning, they can turn Lexi Cartwright into one of them. Before the night is over, Lexi will have to make a choice: die, or kill forever.
Let The Forever Show begin.

Why is this not a series already?

I mention this word in all of my reviews of Marcus Damanda's work, but damn this book is dark. Damanda is surprisingly good at evoking the feel of a camp 80's horror film at first, but then weaving in some discordant notes. I kept thinking I was about to see the hero rally and montage start. And then NOPE. More horror.

It's a great take on a horror classic, which I think it thoroughly lampshades by mentioning it near the end. At you'll still be guessing, still trying to see the way out almost to the last minute of the recording.

Again I have nothing but praise for Jessica McEvoy's narration. You've got to have a female narrator for a tale like this and she's got the just right low and smokey tones to pull you in, an amazing ability to turn on and off a wracked, almost tear choked voice that could make you wonder if she's actually crying to get it right.

Now sadly, I've finished all of Marcus Damanda's books on Audible and I'll have to wait for more. And I will be waiting. These books were awesome.

I just wrote a whole review and it's gone

Would you listen to The Forever Show again? Why?

No. It was very good but fairly long with strong emotional impact.

What other book might you compare The Forever Show to and why?

Something like the "Final Destination " movies.

What three words best describe Jessica McEvoy’s performance?

Undifferentiated, clear and plain.

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

No, too many emotional wallops.

Any additional comments?

When I switched to Notes to copy the disclaimer, when I came back to paste it in the page refreshed and wiped out the entire review I spent 15 minutes writing.The sources of evil in this book are supernatural but the violent horror is real and very satisfyingly massive.This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast.
