This mis-matched duo soon discover, not only do they have a mystery to uncover, but also they’re humanity’s only defense against malign ultra-terrestrials from a different dimension. With interfering locals, obstructive bosses and a fanatical cult getting in the way, and only Cassie’s best friend Amanda (Mandeep Dhillon) as reliable help, Cassie & Glen must figure out why this unique enemy is here and turn it back before it’s too late - for all of us.

    Cassie and Glen try to contain the fallout of their argument – with further arguments. Unsurprisingly, this plan proves less than effective and something terrifying gains a foothold in our world.

Fun to Listen to

I wasn't too sure about this audible, but I have to admit, it places it made me giggle a bit!
I loved how the narrators made this feel exciting and fun to listen to. If there was another book, as good as this, I would definitely listen to it.
This was the right length of time and didn't 'drag' on in any way. It helped me relax more and a good break away from other books/audibles, that are more of an intense read.
Very refreshing, it's worth listening to.

Great fun sci-fi horror comedy

I'll admit that I binged all 8 parts on my daily commute and my husband had to listen to the last half of the last episode with me because I couldn't wait till next week to hear it.
Great fun and I hope there will be a season 2. It reminded me of what the latest iteration of Doctor Who could have been like with a better writer. I'm hooked.

I enjoyed it very much

This was definitely on a par with several Radio 4 series, and I enjoyed it so much I hope there's going to be a second series. Amusing and engaging, with characters I could relate to. Very well-performed.

Good fun

I was surprised to enjoy this as much as I did. Good fun, and plenty of much needed silliness. Can we have a sequel please?

Thoroughly enjoyable, gets better and better!!!

This is really well done, very enjoyable, it moves along really quickly so it's not dull at any point, interesting story that made me laugh.
The way it’s been put together is excellent.
I'd have been very happy to pay for this.

I absolutely loved it, so so good, listened to the whole thing in one day, I know I've said it already but it is very well done, the script, the voices, everything, can't fault it at all.

We need more content like this.

This Podcast was such a pleasant surprise to discover. I don’t normally write reviews, but this was so good I wanted to let the Audible overlords know they have something special here. I would love to hear more. The cast are all so charming, the writing is witty, and the author appears to have a deep understanding of the paranormal. It’s a wonderful radio drama. Please make more!

Excellent listen

No plot give aways, just comments about the performances, which were spot on, and the author's skills and choosing podcasts for delivery was ideal. YAY Audible and thanks for introducing me to a new author and narrators.

Loved it!

This was my first Audible podcast, I really wasn't sure if I'd like it. I realized very quickly I was in love, I binged all of the episodes in about a day. Fast-paced, humorous, snarky, and just plain fun. X-Files, Doctor Who, and Action movie all in one. Great production quality and narration. Halfway thru the episodes, I was wishing this was a movie or tv series, I would definitely watch it! I really hope there are more episodes coming!

Well Done

Not quite what i expected from a story dabiling with the H.P. lovecraft universe. mix in some nonsense about the little know matters of our world and a english heroine and you get this delightful short story. with a great narrator cast.

Dry humor, fast dialogue, absolutely bananas plot

I stumbled on this while looking for something quick to listen to between books, and I'm so glad I found it. It took me about 10 minutes to get in to it but then I was hooked. The dialogue is so quick and funny - you can't help but root for Cassie. Now I'm on the hunt for other material by the author and I hope this becomes a series.

A Fun Ride Into High Strangeness

This was a fun romp with two groups of paranormal investigators who became involved in an alien invasion while a secret government agency tries to get things under control and save the universe. Fantastic cast. Very funny and heartwarming as well. Left open for further adventures which I hope they do. Cassie and Glen belong together. Loved this and hope Audible does more of them. Excellent production and great music too.
