Thirty-five-year-old introvert Todd Bryan hasn't really done much with his life, and he's okay with that. Until, at a painfully bad film festival, he meets Amy Husk. She's attractive. She's funny. She's quirky. And...she has an inoperable brain aneurysm and not much time to live. She may not even make it to the long-awaited final episode of Exit Red, the greatest show ever. She convinces him that they should do something crazy and frivolous.

Got this book through Kindle Unlimited and decided to buy the audiobook at a discount price. This was absolutely brilliant.
Jeff Strand is a teller of great tales.
I always feel in a good mood from the moment they start.
Excellent narrator too. Really helped bring this story to life.
Congrats to both.
Jeff Strand has yet to let me down.

Lei Duncan has it all: the ideal life, the perfect career, and a loving husband. What more could someone ask for? Belinda Walsh has lost it all: her home, her husband, and her mind. She thought she knew Dan, but one phone call changed all that. Now, everything she’s known to be true is a lie. When the lives of two strangers intersect, something will be born of the connection. For one of these two souls, the truth of the world will shift and morph into something powerful and dangerous - a darkness of the mind, a tear in sanity.

Another brilliant story by Edward Lorn and even better on audible.
I thoroughly enjoyed Bay's End and Fog Warning and if you haven't read those then go and do so now. Yiu won't regret it.
Highly recommended.

George and Lou used to be thugs for hire. Now they're living in a shack in Costa Rica, hiding from the crime lord who wants them dead. Their last job, to deliver him a werewolf in a cage, went...badly. But they can't hide out forever, and when they're finally captured, it seems as if George and Lou's ultimate fate will involve being doused in gasoline and set aflame. Instead, they're given a second chance. There's another werewolf out there. This time, it's Ally, a 14-year-old girl.

I didn't think this book could live up to the original Will Hunt, but I was wrong. This is a terrific sequel.
The narration is top notch.
I have yet to be disappointed in anything Jeff Strand brings out.
And I have read a fair few now.
Highly recommended.

So, the thing is, I come from the world we were supposed to have. That means nothing to you, obviously, because you live here, in the crappy world we do have. But it never should've turned out like this. And it's all my fault - well, me and, to a lesser extent, my father. And, yeah, I guess a little bit Penelope. In both worlds she's the love of my life. But only a single version of her can exist. I have one impossible chance to fix history's greatest mistake and save this broken world.

Meet Westlake Soul, a 23-year-old former surfing champion. A loving son and brother. But if you think he’s just a regular dude, think again; Westlake is in a permanent vegetative state. He can’t move, has no response to stimuli, and can only communicate with Hub, the faithful family dog. And like all superheroes, Westlake has an archenemy: Dr. Quietusa, nightmarish embodiment of Death itself. Westlake dreams of a normal life of surfing and loving again. But time is running out; Dr. Quietus is getting closer, and stronger....

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent, and while they sleep they go to another place....

I own the book and like to listen to the audio in between, sometimes with.
Marin's reading on this is excellent.
Completely engrossing experience.
The story is a masterpiece. Would you expect any less?
Hopefully this opens up more doors to the talent that is Owen King.
Do yourself a favour and go buy this epic tale.
