Narrator almost ruined this book

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes. Good story. They might not mine the narration


What didn’t you like about John H Fehskens’s performance?

I can't quite put my finger on it. I think the pacing was off.


Any additional comments?

I liked the story. I would be interested in seeing where this series would go. I received this audiobook for free from the author for my unbiased review.

Fun but not Amazing or Terrifying

Any additional comments?

This is a series that, in my opinion, isn't taking itself too seriously - almost to a fault perhaps! It felt a bit like a soap opera or sit-com at times with the danger not being that dangerous and the dialogue feeling forced. I also despise having the same phrases repeated over and over again. In this one "the former priest" was used maybe 50 times too frequently. The writing and the story itself could have been more creative.

That said, I don't get the sense that this was supposed to be a "scary" horror story. It's a silly/fun story about a demon killing babies. I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a ridiculous, short demon story but doesn't require actual scares.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
