The dead beckon and the girl obeys. Night after night, she answers the graveyard's call, though she dreads her encounters with the creature that dwells there.

But she'll soon come to learn that memories are much more dangerous than monsters....

A dark, mysterious tale.

This is such an incredible story, brought to life by the excellent narration. The book is beautifully written, Blues' dark life so cleverly described and the strange characters of Snail and Crow bringing another dimension to the sorry tale. If you like your stories with a twist, this is one for you !

A wonderful little morsel!

A great story that can easily be listened to in one sitting! The story flows nicely, and the narration is well done. I love when narrators voice each character, instead of just “reading” the book to you. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes paranormal stories. Wonderfully done!

A Fantastic Gothic Horror

This is a very good creepy story and it got itself a really, really good creepy audiobook version.

This story follows a ten year old girl named Blue, who is given a mission by a creature who claims to be an angel to save her mother and sister’s souls. She has to kill ten sinners. Our chapters count down from ten to one as the story progresses.

This story has some fantastic prose, and the world it describes so well is a gloomy one. This story isn’t scary, exactly, though it is quite dark. The character we know as Him is quite disturbing at times. Again, creepy. You’re starting to see here why I’ve never written a review of this little novelette despite liking it quite a lot when I read it the first time. I have a hard time putting words to my thoughts about it. I’m trying to do more than ‘it’s creepy and amazing so you should give it a listen’ but it is those things.

Now, this is a fantastic audiobook, and it's quick. It's only about 2 hours long. I recommend it in audio for a couple of reasons. First of all, the narrator, Nigel Peever does no less than perform the hell out of this story. There is so much emotion where there should be, the voice he gives to Him is just perfect, and his performance brought the prose to life in my head. Best of all, there are special effects and bits of music peppered in here that add a whole extra level of awesome. It made something already great even more great. I think that of a lot of audiobooks, but this one might be my new prime example.
