Jonathan was wounded in that fateful battle and now suffers from PTSD. He wants to put the nightmare behind him, but when Ricky's ghost appears with cryptic warnings about Maggie's house, he begins to question his sanity.
Bobby Weeks is a homeless veteran struggling with a lycanthropic curse....
Afraid of bringing harm, Bobby stays far away from those he loves. But after a full moon, a mysterious woman approaches him and reveals a vision about a house with a sinister presence, and he realizes staying away might no longer be an option.
Minister Jake Williams lost his faith on the battlefield....
While Jake will do anything to reconnect with God, he turns to vices to fill the religious void. But a church elder urges him to take a sabbatical, and a ghost tells him to quit the ministry, and his life is more out of control than ever.
When Maggie wakes in a strange subterranean cavern, she can't deny her home harbors dark secrets. Desperate, she sends letters to her old friends to reunite in Jotham, and events conspire to draw them all to the house...unaware of the danger awaiting them.

Slow.

The basic idea of the story is about a group of friends that grow up together. All the guys go off to war and, of those that come back, they come back changed. Maggie, another of the group, is married to one of the friends, but he dies in the war. She is now a widow and is drawn to a weird old house she barely remembers seeing as a child. She wants all her childhood friends to reunite and so sends out an invitation. Thee house isn't as it seems though!!

This was a hard book to rate simply because, while I really enjoyed it, I just found it a little disjointed and a lot slow!! Parts of the book were gripping, when suddenly the story seemed to change character with no warning. I felt like as soon as I was starting to get to know a character, it would shift to another one, and another and then come back to the first. It was all over the place.

There is a lot if characters in this, and we get to know their backstory a bit, which I liked a lot. For me anyway, it's the characters that made the book readable. They all go to war and all come back irrevocably changed. They were all well written, but I did want a little more development with them.

This is the first in the series and as such, does have a lot of world building to do, so I can understand why the action took a while to take off. I do think I'll read the next just to see what happens!! In all, it's a good enough read!

Rick Gregory did a good job with this. He is clear and easy to follow, and his cadences and inflections were fine. I do think he needs to work on his character voices and distinguishing them a little more. Sometimes his tone stayed the same no matter which character was talking.

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Narrator is awful

The narrator is nearly monotone, cannot pronounce some words, pauses after reading 3-4 words inside a sentence, does not do characters well and has some weird echo thing he tries to do to indicate speaking over a distance. For me, this book is absolutely ruined by the horrible narration. This book is supposed to be creepy and mysterious but the narrator tells the story like he is explaining physics to someone.

Unseen unless seen and then it becomes apparent

Not so much the first of a series but the beginnings of a serial. Had the ending not occurred so abruptly without any resolution, and without forwarding, this reader would have ascribed a five star rating - so be warned.

Five childhood friends, Bobby, Jake, Jonathan, Ricky and Maggie are a very close group with the usual naughtiness and secrets of youth. And they call themselves The Suicide Squad after favourite comic book heroes. When war in Iraq comes, the four males join up. Maggie, by then married to Ricky, stays behind. What follows is both perfectly realistic - and very bizarre.

The earliest scenes in this book, with Jonathan and Ricky serving together, is probably one of the most fraught and mundane images of inside the mind of a soldier that this this reader has encountered. It felt so real. And very atmospheric. Indeed, that runs through the entire story, the 'after they come home' normalcy mixed with the horrors each of the gang, including Maggie, confronts. The pace is slow moving but the tension is always there, gripping and growing, puzzling and demanding to know what is going on? What happens next?

A fascinating story well performed by the narrator, Rick Gregory. I confess that, at the beginning, his reading seemed rather downbeat even though the character dialogue was excellent. But very soon it became apparent that his interpretation of the text was just right, mirroring the blankness of the protagonist's surroundings. An excellent performance meeting text and narration into one whole experience.

This is an horror story made all the more so by the ordinariness of the people and the plight of battle 'heroes' after they return. But nothing is normal for the gang. I was really fortunate in receiving a complimentary copy of Dwelling from the rights holder, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much. And I will certainly be looking out for the next book: I just have to know what happens.
