A group of boyhood friends in the summer of 1977. An annual rite of passage in a dark and alluring Pennsylvania wood. The channeling of a malevolent Presence.

And a childhood game about to go terribly wrong....

Two brothers in the summer of 1995, reunited by the unspeakable nightmare of their past. A bewitching tavern proprietress and psychic intuitive from New Orleans. The revelation of an apocryphal prophesy.

A message to the author…

Stop trying to show the world how smart you are by stringing together as many $10 words as you can in one sentence. It’s so obnoxious that I quit listening after an out and am demanding my money back.

Well done A.G. Mock

Superb tale by A.G. Mock!
It has been a very long time since I found
myself allocating every free moment to a book.
Do yourself a favor, acquire this book - you won’t be sorry and you will find yourself grasping for more!

struggled

Struggled to follow all the time hopping with some sections seeming unnecessary to the story.

Horror Fan

I really enjoyed this listen. It reminded me of some of the great Stephen King books. I saw some stand by me in it as well as thought of the novel “It”. It creeped me out in some spots and made me laugh in other areas. Worth it for me. The narrator was spot on as well.

Interesting Story

The story was interesting. I think the author vacilllated between extreme descriptive language and then informal slang. There was a lot of sexual descriptions which didn't work for me. The end of the story had an unexpected twist.

It’s alright

Ok story line but it flipped back and forth so much it was confusing at times.
I feel like it was a strange take on “IT”.
For the me the storyline jumped around so much and didn’t finish at all. There were times I was really thinking oh it’s getting good, then it would fall flat again.

Unexpected Storyline

I really loved this book and can't wait for part 2. There are a lot of different reviews regarding how the author jumps from different time lines and how it's hard to follow but it really plays off the present and past timelines very well In my opinion. So the story line is not straightforward so you do have to have patience and pay attention, but it is well worth it, especially when they bring in the the spiritual woman from New Orleans and from there it gets really good. This is definitely one of the books that makes you want to jump right into the 2nd book because the plot is not obvious and the villain is not obvious so I'm definitely looking forward for book 2.

And of course Joe Hemple is a master at narrating.

A little boring

Several uses of the same descriptions. A little long and drawn out. Got a little boring mid way through as too drawn out.
