©1996 Owl Goingback; (P)2004 Books in Motion
From the first few minutes I was hooked and I listened through to the very end (until 3.20am!). Great audio book, definitely worth getting.
The whole story keeps you in suspence. Mr. Goingback's imagination is incredible...
Yes, with all the mystery and killing. It was unpredictable.
Yes, I loved his voice very clear, pleasant and sexy too.
I wouldn't dare.
I wish that Mr. Goingback would write more books like this one. I have all of his books. I enjoyed each and one of them.
"Well written story that belongs in the Horror Genr"
Great story!!! This was the first of Mr Goingback's books I read. All '5'? of his works are great. Now Mr. Goingback, it's time for you to start writing again! Your readers are waiting!!
This is a good scary monster book. It is fast paced and is really enjoyable. The cops getting handled had me a little tense at one point. This is a good book for anyone that enjoys man vs monster stories. Its well written and the narrator did a good job as well. Would recommend.
I've been a horror fan for 25 years (my mom took me to see my first horror movie, jaws, at age 6). This is the first book, in a long time, that had me scared in the first chapter. Thank you! Owl Goingback, for a fabulous listen!
"Try this you want something dark and different"
I really enjoyed this one and was scared at several points ... enough that the soles of my feet broke out in a sweat. For me, this was a new and original retelling of the age old struggles of good against evil. Owl Goingback is a capable storyteller. Clearly he deserved winning the Bram Stoker Award for this one. It is not a perfect story but the best ones rarely are. Gotta go ... time to purchase the others books by Owl Goingback and maybe a really nice hardcover edition of this one.
"crota - it's okay"
I am not going to say that this is a hidden gem or anyting - far from it.
When I read this one other review here, I must admit that one pushed me over the edge. You know, the girl that says she's been into the horror-genre for 25 years and this one finally scared here.
As expected, nothing here scared me, but I don't know about you: do you ever really get scared, literally?
Having said that, considering the many terrible reviews the book got at amazon (among some good ones), this was decent. Nothing special. But not bad, either. If I was to truly recommend someting, though, I'd say "the killer's wife", which I finished today.
"Dean Koontz meets Tony Hillerman"
The literary elite might find faults with this work but I found it to be a very good story. It is an intersting combination of Native American lore and modern day mystery. If you enjoy either Koontz or Hillerman you will enjoy this one. I look forward to more of this authors work.
This was a pretty good monster tail. I really enjoyed it. It was fast pace and well thought out.
Not the best out there but if you like horror, more like B horror films, then this is for you.
