Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best-seller!

There may only be one killer, but no one is innocent in this new young adult thriller from Natasha Preston, author of The Cellar, a New York Times best-seller, and Awake.

They think they're invincible.

They think they can do and say whatever they want.

They think there are no consequences.

They've left me no choice.

It's time for them to pay for their sins.

A weekend partying at a remote cabin is just what Mackenzie needs. She can't wait to let loose with her friends. But a crazy night of fun leaves two of them dead-murdered.

With no signs of a forced entry or struggle, suspicion turns to the five survivors. Someone isn't telling the truth. And Mackenzie's first mistake? Assuming the killing is over....

If I could give 0 stars I would

The dialogue was repetitive. You knew who the killers within the 1st hr. The ending was pointlessly dull, predictable. This book was for teenagers. I liked The Cellar but I'm seeing a trend. These books are for young adults as in 16-21 range.

Good Murder Mystery

Any additional comments?

The Cabin had me hooked from the very beginning and the plot twists kept me guessing. Mackenzie and her friends go to a cabin for a weekend of partying and people start dying. Who will survive? Who is the killer? You'll have to find out for yourself! This audiobook had a little of everything to keep my interest. I was a bit surprised at the sexual content, considering that these were high school students. Overall The Cabin was very entertaining, the narration well done and I would recommend this.

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.

Holy Smokes! Almost Didn't See It Coming

Where does The Cabin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Great mystery. I'd listen to it again.

What about Morag Sims’s performance did you like?

Overall Ms. Sims did a nice job. I enjoyed her portrayal of the various main characters (Kenzie &n Blake)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Ms. Preston creates a really intriguing story. Lots of twists and turns. Great characters. I couldn't wait to listen to more of the story every moment I had free.

I won't add any more to the description of the main story than what the author offered. I would be afraid it would ruin the numerous surprises.

Definitely for the 17 and older crowd due to sexual situations and mature dialog. The characters are Seniors in High School. That's where I'd start as far as an audience.

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy via audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review. Thank you.

Kept me guessing!

I really enjoyed this book from all the way up until the ending. Do I still recommend this book to other? YES! I was hooked throughout the whole book up until maybe the last chapter where it started to feel sped up. This book really does have it all (murder, mystery, romance, action, twists and turns). This is the first book I've listened to by Natasha Preston and I will definitely listen to more by this author. Narrator was perfect for the characters in this book and easy to listen to.

Great Book

Any additional comments?

The Cabin by Natasha Preston was a great book. Mackenzie was going for a weekend away with her friends at a cabin. Her and her friends are trying to let loose when two of them come up dead. This was a great book of just how far someone will go to get payback. I can't wait to read more by Natasha Preston.

YA Murder Mystery

Would you consider the audio edition of The Cabin to be better than the print version?

Hmm...maybe? I actually have "read" both and I did really like the narration of this version.

Any additional comments?

I'm a fan of Natasha Preston and particularly like Young Adult-Murder Mysteries. I had actually already read some of this book on Wattpad a while back but thought I'd give the audiobook a listen since a free copy was offered. Definitely worth the listen if this is a genre that you enjoy!

wowzer!

ok, so I was a little skeptical at first about listening to this one. only cause of the reviews. but I took a chance and got it to listen to while I'm at work. and to my surprise, I actually liked it. most reviews says they already knew who the murderer was within the first hour or so but I didnt. I was guessing the whole time. also, it turned out to be someone who i never even thought of and also if im correct, was barely in the book. anyways, I really liked the 2 lead character and I love Blake's flirtiness as well as his teases. anyways, hope u enjoy it too if you chooses to listen to it.

Really fun to read, had a twisting turn at the end, make sure not to skip it.

If you like to read mystery then this book is GREAT for you, make sure cotilleen under 10 or 12 don’t read it cause there is some parts that are might be inappropriate for them.

Brilliant until the end

I LOVE Natasha's writing. From Silence onwards. The Cabin is no exception, but the end was very unsatisfying. Natasha, if you ever read these reviews. Please don't ever leave such an ending again. 😩😟😒😱

Had the suspect figured out way too fast.

I found this book when I was looking for books in the horror/thriller category, which I hadn't read yet. I thought it was going to be one of those where they're trapped in the cabin once they get there, and people die. What I got was a surprise, but I still kept reading. I understand they are teens, and there's a lot of teen language and thoughts in this book, as well as actions, and there were times I was really frustrated with McKenzie. Way too trusting, and in my view, foolish. Not sure about the romance plot in with a murder mystery though. I hung on to one suspect all the way through the book, and I did feel a little smug when I was proved right. No matter what false trail Preston through at me, I stayed with my convictions, and they paid off. I've read a lot of this style of book, and I've always learned that in 99 cases out of 100, what the author lets us see, is never the right answer to the twist. I wouldn't read it again, but it was certainly something different from what I was expecting. Narration was very good as well.
