Publisher's Summary

Traveler, cleric, witch. The villagers in the sleepy hamlet of Lychford are divided. A supermarket wants to build a major branch on their border. Some welcome the employment opportunities while some object to the modernization of the local environment.
Judith Mawson (local crank) knows the truth - that Lychford lies on the boundary between two worlds and that the destruction of the border will open wide the gateways to malevolent beings beyond imagination. But if she is to have her voice heard, she's going to need the assistance of some unlikely allies....

Superb story and narration

This Novella is a relatively short listen but is well done in every aspect. The narrator is perfect for the story. If you like a good mystery where the protagonists discover that there is a world beside ours with occasional people crossing over in both directions you will enjoy this tale.

Disappointing

I bought this book because of all the great reviews. I liked it so much after listening for a while that I went and bought another book by the author. However, SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT SPOILERS TO FOLLOW
just at the very moment I was thinking to myself "one of the many things that makes this book so great is that the author didn't feel the need to pointlessly torture some member of the animal kingdom" the author decided to do just that. I have had it with this sort of behavior from magical authors. There is no need for it, it's disgusting and pointless. A two star rating is probably harsh, because the story has many good points. It's well written, the characters are well defined and unique, and it posses great atmosphere. None of that matters to me because now I'm furious at the author for betraying my trust.
Also, there's a surprise at the end that I absolutely did not see coming and that depressed me quite a bit. It's possible that there's going to be a sequel and that the author plans to deal with these issues then, because there are many loose ends at the end of the story that don't get tied up.
The reader is perfect for this story and does a wonderful job.
