What the Critics Say

"Set in present-day Birmingham, Ala., the novel centers on Chance Matthews, a promising young paleontologist left bereft by the recent deaths of friends and family. Chance and ex-boyfriend Deke Silvey, a loser with latent psychic powers, wallow in self-destructive angst until they're sought out by Dancy Flammarion, a strange teenage girl who claims to be pursued by monsters....A finale that veers unexpectedly from a seemingly inevitable display of supernatural fireworks to a subtly disarming denouement only underscores the intelligence behind this carefully crafted tale of awe-inspired nightmare."

Boring. Don't waste 12 hours on this.

I only bought this book because of the character Dancy Flammarion, having read her Dark Horse comic stories. Without spoiling anything, she barely makes a presence in the book and the story drags on with the other 3 main characters. The narrator did a fantastic job using different tones to show a wide range of voice talent but the slow, boring and seemingly uncompleted story kills any further interest in this series, I'll stick to the comics.

Yikes

I was trapped in the car with this mess of a story for a week with little to do but listen as it droned on. The narrator was awesome, no worries there, and the author really does do a good job of describing the scenes and all, but the story... yikes!

Hours and hours spent listening to conversations that go absolutely nowhere. Then the big climactic ending (which plays out in about 4 min) reminded me of that episode of Dallas that had everyone so ticked off.

If the phrase "What did you see in the tunnel Deke?" repeated ad nauseam is your idea of great story telling, then by all means give this one a listen. Otherwise, give it a pass.
