I thought the book sounded interested and from the snippet I got, it is. The issue is that the narrator sounds too old, too cold and too formal for the young female protagonist and the gory descriptions within the book. This disconnect makes it hard to engage. I quit when the narrator made an eldrich abomination sound like it was talking through a mouth full of food. The No Sleep Podcast has plenty of similar stories told by believable and talented female narrators. I think they should have gotten one of them. Since they didn't, I recommend listening to that podcast over this. In a weird way, even male narrator McCloud Andrews would have been better because he can convey emotion, youth and horror well in his narration and female characters.

The plot is non-existent, the characters are lacking in depth and complexity, and the vilian(s) are mutilated forms of Lovecraft's antagonists. Reads like a teenagers fantasy of how they would be accepted into the rank and file of the Cthulhu mythos.
