The nightmare home. We thought we'd found our haven, a cottage deep in the heart of the forest. Quaint, charming, maybe a little run-down, but so peaceful. The woodland animals and birds couldn't have been more neighbourly. That was the first part of the Magic. Midge's painting and my music soared to new heights of creativity. That was another part of the Magic. Our sensing, our feelings, our love for each other - well, that became the supreme Magic. But the cottage had an alternative side. The Bad Magic.

I must admit to being a big James Herbert Fan, I have read almost every book he wrote, also i have most of his audio books but on Cassette or CD including this one (Narrated by Robert Powell), so i joined Audible to update my collection..... This is in my opinion one of the worst Narrators I have heard and spoiled an otherwise very good book.... Very disappointed
