Publisher's Summary

Every autumn, when the weather turned and the wind came off the marsh, the dark waters of Wickers Bog gave up its ghosts and reawakened the old yarns.
Julene Ella Haddan is about to be drawn into one of them.
It was a grey, joyless day, when young Julene heard the song of the siren and followed its melody into the enchanted swamp...a journey which led her into a tale of murder and deceit. It's only the fated who hear the siren. Yet Julene's fate now seems bound to the fabled Lady of Lisenby, the spectral gatekeeper of the Bog, queen of the haunted deep. However, is it justice the Lady seeks or is Julene the siren's next victim?
Myth and mystery collide in this tale of southern gothic horror.

Toe-Curler!

I loved this story and have already listened to it a second time since buying it. The story is set in the south. I loved the speech patterns and sayings that are very distinct and gave so much character to the story.

The story begins with Julene wandering into Wicker's Bog when she hears a beautiful voice singing. She finds there the dead body of a young woman who disappeared some time ago. I won't give anymore because the story is short and I hate to give anything away.

Set in the deep south the descriptions of the area and Wicker's Bog remind me of almost any swampy area. There are so many hidden areas that could be such a place. There's a story behind the bog. In this one a plantation house was swallowed by water. The curious characters who lived there died when the water so quickly overtook the place and the lady of the house is said to remain there.

The authentic descriptions and colorful language really make the story. The sound quality in parts wasn't great but the narrator was fabulous! At some point I'll be listening to this again a third time and probably more!

OMG! Best ghost story ever

Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I am Southern and thus have heard many good old ghost tales but I have to say this one is right up there with the best ever. Many of my elder relatives have great ones and this could be one they told me on a scary stormy night. Along with a superb story, the narrator adds volumes to the authenticity of the story.
