Enjoyable Paranormal Thriller
I consume a whole ton of this kind of content and 'Ghosts of Eden' had a fairly unique take on the genre, which is always a pleasant and wonderful surprise. I would characterize this tale as more of the paranormal variety, than of the thriller variety but the genres are close enough I guess!
Narration by Talmadge Ragan was spot on, giving one of the two protagonists, young orphaned Kayla, a courageous tone despite the tragedies and confusion she faces. Deininger weaves a tale about mysterious happenings, chance meetings, fate and learning who to trust and who is lying to you. This story wasn't my favorite ever, but it held my attention throughout. I would recommend this one to any friends who enjoy a paranormal mystery/thriller!

It Would Probably Work Better as a Book
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I was intrigued by this book, but it fell a little short of what I was expecting. Part of the problem was the quality of the recording that kept fading in and out. I thought that the problem was with my device, but after listening to other audiobooks, I realized that the recording was at fault. It is also a very hard book to follow as an audio recording because of the complexity of the plot and the different characters' background stories that precede the actual plot. I'm guessing that if I had read the book, I would have been able to enjoy it much better as I would have had less visual distractions. I've actually listened to the entire book twice just to make sure that my initial impression was the correct one. The second time around it made more sense, maybe because at that point I was already somewhat familiar with the plot and it was easier to follow. I would recommend the printed version of the book for the paranormal enthusiasts as the writing was pleasant.
