The novel is amazing granted a few things, first the character set up is at least 35-40% of this story. The writer does a great job showing their development vs telling it via reflection, you can see the characters growing. Secondly, this book is intended to be one of several, because of that there seems to be a lot of minor loose ends. All of that aside, I think the novel was amazing. Very well thought out, structured and executed. Amazing character development and over all interesting. It kept my attention from the very beginning. Now for the narration, originally I thought Pete Bradbury was going to be too dry to endure. Surprisingly this novel suits him allowing him to show case his control over his voice. However, there are few times where knowing who is speaking can become problem. Overall, the novel is very pleasing and highly suggested.

I didn't think I was going to like this book as much as I now do. I'm a gamer, I download audiobooks to pass my time in games with a lil background entertainment. This book was so good, it made me stop gaming, log off and I just listen. It's not in the least bit scarey so I don't know what it's doing listed under horror. Reguardless, the story was Very entertaining. The narrator did a pretty good job with voices. He didn't do those high pitched, annoying sounding "female" voices. I related to all the characters, even the minor ones and I actually cared what happend to them. There's only one not believable part concerning the main female character in the woods. But other than that, I highly recommend this story. There's a sequil comming out that I will deffinitly buy. It's Very rare that I rave about a book, so trust me on this one. Get it.
