Creepy and enticing

What an interesting story! This started a bit slow, but quickly wicked me in. It is reminiscent of Something Wicked This Way Comes. It is a story of a boy on the edge of becoming an adult, this allowing him to remember his missing brother and to go and find him and all of the other missing children.

Excellent Book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would definitely recommend this audiobook, it was a good book to listen to and the narrator read very well and was not just a boring voice. He made the characters come alive to me.

What did you like best about this story?

The ending was the best, the way the story turned out. Happy and sad

What does Arthur Slade bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Knowing that the Author is the narrator is great because he made me feel that the characters were real. Even the changing of his voice for each one was great.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I actually listen to my books when I need to calm down because I have an anxiety disorder but I very well could have listened to the whole thing, it was that good

Any additional comments?

Love Arthur Slade books!!!!!!
