Publisher's Summary

In Drawn, a mysterious little boy has begun appearing in the paintings of an artist who can't remember ever actually seeing him. A partially blind, disfigured agoraphobic who suffers crippling panic attacks if he even tries to leave his apartment is forced out by an unseen entity. A lonely widower begins to suffer terrifying nightmares that his long-missing, presumed-dead son is still alive and in mortal danger. A young runaway realizes that a man he thought was his traveling companion is actually his captor...and a predator. The lives of four very different people, driven by different but very powerful forces, crash together as they fight to solve their individual mysteries, to defeat a brutal enemy, and to save the life of an innocent boy.

Audible Editor Reviews

Boasting a cast of narrators including Golden Earphones recipient Gabrielle de Cuir and Golden Voice awardee Stefan Rudnicki, this unique audiobook features each narrator taking on a different character and performing chapters from their point of view. Listeners will be electrified by their performance of this story where a mysterious little boy who begins appearing in an artist's paintings, even though the artist has never actually seen him; a partially-blind agoraphobic is expelled from his apartment by a strange entity; a widower begins to have nightmares that his long-missing son is still alive and in danger; and a young runaway realizes his companion is actually a malevolent presence. The narrators keep up an urgent pace, and link these four stories together seamlessly to an unpredictable end.

Great narration, weak story

Would you listen to Drawn again? Why?

No, although the narration was compelling, the story itself was not worth another listen.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I love supernatural thrillers, but the mechanism that tied this one together was very far off, and didn't make any sense. Suspension of disbelief only goes so far.


What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

With maybe one exception, all of the narrators are top notch, embodied their individual characters well, and kept me listening.

So Worth a Credit!!!

I was not expecting to like this novel nearly as much as I did. As I have admitted before, I am an extremely picky reader and have to be engaged from the first page of a book until the last. "Drawn" kept me interested and creeped out from the beginning until the end. This paranormal listen has an original storyline that weaves in and out of four people's lives, and neatly comes together at the end. It reminds me of Koontz and King's earlier novels. The narration was outstanding with the one exception. The female character's narration had a voice that was a cross between whining and sexual frustration or something, ... I don't know what the hell was going on there. The other performances, fortunately, made up for it. Overall this book is definately worth a credit, and worth your time.
