Inga manages to escape from a house of terror where she was held as a sex slave along with other girls who were kidnapped. She is chased into the woods and runs onto the road, almost falling under the wheels of an approaching car. She thought, it would be better to die that way than to return to her captors. The driver of the car, to her surprise, saves her. He brings her to his house and introduces her to his family: his mother, his father, and his younger sister. He gives Inga a key to a separate room and brings her food. She appreciates his help and calls him her knight from the road. All she needs now is a phone to make a call to her mother. Her savior, Alman, says they don't have one in the house. He's also not in a hurry to take her from his house in the woods to the town of Quiet River where she can talk to police. And Inga began to doubt the noble intentions of her savior. After some time she starts to think this house is worse than the one she was imprisoned in before, if that was possible.

Horrifying and Totally Awesome
"The Voice of Waterfalls" was an incredibly pleasant surprise! As many other reviewers have noted, the book has a premise that has been done before (girl escapes evil, finds herself entrapped in a greater evil!). However, I completely disagree that this story was cliched. I think Salnikova hit on all the points we would expect, but did it in such a way that I found it satisfying, surprising and compelling. The villains in this tale are unimaginably twisted; I couldn't stop listening for I absolutely had to know how Inga was going to get out of that mess. The characters were believable despite their sinister behavior; the paranormal element was a unique and interesting plot point.
Michelle Marie, however, was the rockstar of this book for me. She pulled me in right from the beginning and made me feel pity for the characters even when I thought they were being stupid. Her voice performance was absolutely stellar - I intend to seek out more books narrated by her!
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
