He helplessly watches as a Clouded One kidnaps Hannah, his first true love, and as he struggles to save her, he discovers the terrifying truth: She's not the one they really wanted.
The story takes place in the community of Belmont Shore in Long Beach, CA, where October is drawn into a world of surprising discoveries and disturbing answers about his cursed sight - discoveries and answers that may lead to the end of October's life.

Better Than Expected
I was pleasantly surprised by October's November. From the initial description I didn't know how much I would enjoy it, but honestly, I loved it. Listening to James Loram's performance, I was instantly hooked.
The book itself is very much a fully immersive experience, and James Loram has done an incredible job of placing the listener into the mind of a madman, the psyche of a victim, and the desperate struggle of a protagonist to break out of the darkness. His references to classic music, as well as several of his own original compositions make for an engrossing tale interwoven with culture and art.
My one criticism is the fact that many scenes were confusing in their execution and I found myself having to rewind and listen over and over in order to fully comprehend what was happening. Outside of those few hiccups, I absolutely did not want to stop listening to October's November until I reached the end.
A modern tale of the supernatural and the strength inside every human being to rise up and become a hero, October's November is a complex and enjoyable story.
