Publisher's Summary

Alone. Frightened. Captive. If you hear someone approaching, RUN. She is not there to help you.
There is an ancient evil in the Back Country, dormant for centuries but now hungry and lurking. When it sets its sights on an unsuspecting mother one routine morning along an isolated stretch of highway, a quiet farming family is suddenly thrust into a world of unspeakable terror, and a young girl must learn to be a hero.

Dark and sinister

This is a very dark and sinister take on the story of Hansel and Gretel. Though it is loosely based on that tale, it is very different from anything you would know. There are some quite gruesome scenes, definitely not for the faint-hearted. I liked Gretel as the main character and was engaged through the story, wanting to know what would happen to her. The old woman's point of view actually made me slightly sympathetic to her at some parts. It finished quite abruptly and I feel like something was missing as it jumped suddenly to the end without explanation. I guess the next book will explain more.
The reading was ok, but the narrator seemed to struggle on some of the words and the volume changes throughout the book. Sometimes it goes so quiet that the volume has to be turned right up.

Audio quality was HORRIBLE

The worst part about this book was the audio and the narrator. The volume would go in and out and, at times, was extremely difficult to hear. I would have to turn my volume all the way up and then, when the volume suddenly went back to normal, it would be so loud I was afraid my car speakers would blow out. The narrator was not able to pronounce several words and she didn’t follow punctuation cues very well. The story line itself was okay. The audio is what made me give this one such a poor rating.

Badly recorded

Unfortunately this sounds like it was recorded in someone’s front room. The sound fades in and out, with an echo in the background, and changing in volume.
The story is enjoyable enough but have chosen to read the remainder as I could not stand the quality of the performance.
