Publisher's Summary

Over one million readers have taken the journey to the world's scariest places. Now it's your turn.

From USA Today and number one Amazon best-selling author Jeremy Bates comes a bone-chilling descent into the tunnels beneath Paris where an unknown evil awaits. AHWA winner for horror. For fans of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

Paris, France, is known as the City of Lights, a metropolis renowned for romance and beauty. Beneath the bustling streets and cafés, however, exists the Catacombs, a labyrinth of crumbling tunnels filled with six million dead.

When a video camera containing mysterious footage is discovered deep within their depths, a group of friends venture into the tunnels to investigate. But what starts out as a lighthearted adventure takes a turn for the worse when they reach their destination - and stumble upon the evil lurking there.

Although in a series, this is a stand-alone novel. For fans of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Richard Laymon, and Bentley Little, as well as other horror and mystery authors such as Dan Simmons, Jack Ketchum, Robert McCammon, Brian Keene, Darcy Coates, Amy Cross, Jeff Strand, Ambrose Ibsen, Jeremy Robinson, Nick Cutter, Blake Crouch, Joe Hill, Iain Rob Wright, Jeff Menapace, Matt Shaw, Heather Graham, Jack Kilborn, and James Herbert. We hope you enjoy!

Just OK

The story was a little long, not a lot of action. I frequently found my mind wandering and had to rewind to see if I missed anything. The narrator isn't bad, but he mispronounced words (nuclear, escape, deus ex machina, etc.), which annoyed me.

Bad narrator

Couldn't listen for more than 3 minutes. Narrator is awful. He gets high pitched at the end of every sentence.

Couldn’t get over narration

Horrible . The worst narration Iv heard from audibles of elsewhere , with the exception of my Mac , the voice of “Alex” ( reading pdf ‘s to me. )

All I heard was da ...da da da da da da..da da da . His emphasis and inflection made him sound like a child learning to read .

Good

Overall a book that held my interest. I did not find it scary or really even that suspenseful, but it was good. Narrator did a great job.

Wow

Loved this book! Mystery, intrigue, gore, coupling up, fantastical wonder.
Definitely a book that I would recommend. It took a little time to get going but still draws you in fully and immerses you in the Catacombs with them.
