Publisher's Summary

Alex Hunter, code named Arcadian, wakes up with no knowledge of who he is, in the care of a woman he doesn't recognize, in a country not his own. But there is a calling deep within him, to return home to Black Mountain. Formed a billion years ago, the Appalachian's Black Mountain hosts a terrible legend. Only one elder remains to guard its long-forgotten, deadly secret and there is a fear that there is evil lurking again. Some hikers have gone missing, and the rescue team sent to search for them has not returned.
Meanwhile, in nearby Asheville, Professor Matt Kearns is drawn into the mystery of an ancient artifact recovered from the mountainside, and an image too grotesque to be real. A survivor is then found half-alive, covered in blood - blood revealed to be not quite human. Alex must confront an age-old enemy of man and discover the truth about his past, and confront the horror that stalks the frozen mountain, and also the one haunting his very soul.

Roller Coaster Ride

This is the 4th book in The Arcadian (Alex Hunter series) after reading and listening to the other audiobooks this one did not disappoint, it was a sit on the edge of you seat and enjoy the roller coaster ride. Full of action, suspense and surprises. I love listening to Sean Mangan he had a great style and never disappoints great narraton.

Best yet!

Would you consider the audio edition of Black Mountain to be better than the print version?

Comparing the audio to the print edition is akin to asking someone if they liked the movie or the book. It's all down to the performance, and the reader does a great job, so it's a great audio.

Have you listened to any of Sean Mangan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to other Greig Beck performances by Sean Mangan, and echoing my review title, this is the best yet.

Any additional comments?

I had read several reviews of this book that criticized the plot line where Alex is being pursued by several different agencies as detracting from the main story. I strongly disagree. One of the best parts for me was near the end of the book (I won't give out any spoilers, sorry) where Alex needs to act to save someone, and I found myself yelling "Save [that person], Alex, don't just stand there!!!" Luckily for me, I listen to the book in my car while driving to work so no one heard me making a fool of myself.

The main plot is great as well, would have liked more but then, I would have liked more of the whole book, too. If you have read any of the previous three and liked them, GET THIS BOOK! I can't wait for the next one.
