There were some parts in this book where I found myself letting out a huge breath which made me realize that I was holding my breath for a pretty long time! That doesn't happen very often when I'm listening to a book, so that's pretty high praise.
The only downside I have to mention is that there were some times when I wanted to reach into the book and slap a character on the back of the head. Like the person who wouldn't listen to a loved one near the start who warned them that it was too dangerous to go out in that weather and they idiotically disagreed. Even the most casual observer sees disaster now coming a million miles away, and I know the author could have done a better job setting up that disaster than making the person just an arrogant moron who wouldn't listen.
But that's my only nit-picky complaint. The rest of the story after the clumsy setup flowed well and had plenty of breath-holding moments that I won't spoil! Give it a listen and see if you agree. Narrator was awesome and didn't overdo it though it might have been tempting at times because the writing was tight and could have lead to over-dramatic leanings, but kudos to the narrator for her restraint and talent.
