Publisher's Summary

YOU SENSE HIM

Some refer to it as the Colony. To others, it’s a cult. But few locals in the Oregon coastal hamlet of Deception Bay have ever been invited to the inner sanctum of Siren Song. Even the sisters who live here, far from strangers who might recoil at their unnerving psychic abilities, don’t know all the terrors buried within its walls…

YOU FEAR HIM

Eight months into a surrogate pregnancy for her sister, Kristina, Detective Savannah Dunbar just wants to wrap up paperwork before taking medical leave. But her department’s investigation into a brutal double homicide has suddenly become much more complex — and personal. And now there are disturbing rumors about the Colony, its matriarch, and a long history of bitter secrets...

BUT YOU CAN NEVER STOP HIM

Death has come to Siren Song before. But this time there will be no refuge and no remorse. For everything born in wickedness must die that way — and a killer will not rest until he has claimed them all…

Ouch!

This book must have been written in all caps with a dozen exclamation marks after each sentence. Why else would the narrator read (scream) it that way? I doubt that Marines in boot camp are yelled at that much.

The back story was interesting but the main story, about a crazed serial killer, was "eh"

The narrator ruined the audiobook!

Something Wicked does not include a lot of mystery or suspense, but it is a worthwhile listen EXCEPT Susan Ericksen narrates the book as if excited. I am normally an Ericksen fan, but she was horrid reading this book.

Fantastic book! I didn't want to stop listening!

Would you listen to Something Wicked again? Why?

I generally don't read or listen to a book a 2nd time but with this one I may have to... Because audible doesn't have books 2 or 3 of this great listen! :/ By the time they have those books I may have to reacquaint myself with the story in order to remember this 1st book of series.

Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

Savy!

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

Yes!

Any additional comments?

I don't understand how audible/Amazon can have only partial books for a complete series!? Again, this book is amazing and I want to know what happens to Savy & Hale and what happens to good time Charlie! So many unanswered questions because the 2nd & 3rd installments/books are not made available on audible. May have to go back to the old fashioned way and buy those books & read them just so I can get all the answers left unanswered. Had I known that this was one of many I am now seeing, series that are incomplete here on audible, I would not have paid for it.. I would've bought the hard Cover books and read them. I've already sent requests for other incomplete series.. Will be sending this one into audible too. Otherwise this is a fantastic book!

Interesting story but terrible narrator

I continue with the series because I like the storyline but it's very hard to listen to the narrator. She overdoes it and overemphasizes almost everything so that what should be emphasized becomes lost. If I don't finish the series it will be because she I can't stand listening to her anymore

My Thoughts

Love this series ❤
I can't stop reading/ listening to it.
After I write this review I'm going to jump
into the next book in this series.
It's so wonderfully creepy and unpredictable.
I've been caught off guard several times already!
And the men! I've fallen for all of them!

reality

I enjoyed the book. My only problem, which bugged me, was not being accurate regarding a woman's body after child birth. You don't fit into regular clothes the day after and you don't wear regular underwear. That's the only fault with the book.

The narrator was AWFUL!!!

I listened to only three hours of this book. I couldn't take anymore!! The narrator's voice was like nails on a chalkboard. If you're thinking of buying this recording, PLEASE listen to a sample of it first. The narrator makes everyone (all the time) sound like their screeching / annoyed / irritable / nasty. It may have been a good story but I'll never know. I did myself a favor by turning it off.

Great story

The story was good, I enjoyed every bit of it
The reader was VERY annoying for about the first 8 hours I eventually did get use to her
I just didn't care for her voice on the characters
If you aren't picky on the readers a great book
If you do have issues with the readers put it aside and you will enjoy the book
