Publisher's Summary

Siler House has stood silent beneath Savannah’s moss-draped oaks for decades. Notoriously haunted, it has remained empty until college-bound Jess Perry and three of her peers gather to take part in a month-long study on the paranormal. Able to talk to ghosts, Jess quickly bonds with her fellow test subjects, who have their own “gifts.” One is possessed. Another just wants to forget. The third is a guy who knows how to turn up the August heat, not to mention Jess’s heart rate…when he’s not resurrecting the dead. The study soon turns into something far more sinister when they discover that Siler House and the dark forces within are determined to keep them forever. To escape, Jess and the others must open themselves up to the true horror of Siler House and channel the very evil that seeks to hold them in.

    "Entertaining and spooky"

    From the blurb this seems like a standard story we've seen a lot of. However, it has its own path that I found original and interesting. There are some spooky moments and it builds to the end. I found the ending a little abrupt, but not a disappointment. The narration is good and engaging.

    Story
    "Hormonal teenagers - not for me"
    Would you try another book written by Michelle Muto or narrated by Tavia Gilbert?

    The narration was fine, but the book was just not very good. Implausible plot devices, over-emotional teenagers and a very weak sense of logic as to thy certain things happened just left me cold, and irritated. I forced myself to listen to the end, just in case, but I really wish I hadn't bothered.

    "One of my favorite YA reads of ALL time!"
    If you could sum up The Haunting Season in three words, what would they be?

    Addictive, creepy, fun!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gage. He is a wonderful combination of snarkiness, intelligence, and bravery (and okay, the fact that he s gorgeous doesn't hurt either! Lol;)


    Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not.


    If you could rename The Haunting Season, what would you call it?

    Anything I can think of might give something away, so I will have to pass rather than include potential spoliers. Sorry!


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely love this book! I bought it in print first and, since it's one I kept with the intention of reading again, I thought it would be fun to have it on audio as well. Although this is technically a YA book, fans of horror will enjoy it as well. I am not a horror fan in general, however this is a very well crafted book that has a perfect combination of mystery, creepiness, snarky humor, and romance. It kept me riveted (and had me downright scared in parts!) It is very descriptive with well developed characters, a solid plotline (devoid of cliches and "eye-rolling moments" I am happy to say!;) and a creepy ambiance that was just spooky enough to be enjoyably scary, and did not cause me to throw the book across the room and need to sleep with the light on for a week!

    The author delivers a thrilling adventure ride with plenty of twists and turns that kept me guessing and in suspense (without resorting to gorey shock-fests or worn out formulas.)
    The book ended perfectly with a satisfying conclusion that was both shocking and appropriate. I found myself completely immersed in the story and could visualize it in my head as if it was a movie ( and it would make a great one!:) I can't think of anything I didn't like except that it left me wanting more, not because it lacked closure, but it was a such a fun, thrilling ride of a book that I didn't want to end. If you love creepy, paranormal reads, give this one a try. I highly recommend it.:)

    Story
    "Horror - No... Young Adult - Maybe"

    It is seldom that I give a book only 2 stars but this one was so cliché. It did have a few creepy moments. The young adult crowd may enjoy this book. At the age of 38 and having read/listened to my share of haunted house stories, I found it predictable and too filled with too much nonsense and gooey puppy love for my taste.

    If you could sum up The Haunting Season in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting ghost story.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I thought the story was good however although the narrator had a wonderful range of voices, it grated on me, however this is just a personal opinion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book over several sittings and enjoyed the story.

    "Great story, disturbing"
    Where does The Haunting Season rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not bad, interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the way the characters interacted to the house in their own way.


    Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but this book was pretty good. I liked her southern inflection to the voice of each character.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Haunting Season and why?

    Jess because she was very "real" in the story. Her story came to life.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought Allison's voice was too intense and sounded like she was on the verge of panic with every sentence. Her character would have annoyed me had this been a movie.

    This was a well written book very good but just as important.. the reader was amazing! She is able to change her voice to which character she was representing and she did a phenomenal job. It was a great book I highly recommend it for paranormal fans! Tavia Gilbert just amazed me the way her acting talent came out in her reading!

    The Haunting Season
    Written by: Michelle Muto
    Narrated by: Tavia Gilbert
    This was one scary story. It was an audible book and the narrator was awesome at keeping the panic level high! My nerves were shot by the end of it. She did the many voices great.
    The plot and characters were so realistic in the story. This was creepier than the movie, The Haunted, the black and white version or the new version. This was not a hack-and-slash like some horror stories. This was mostly all paranormal and just creepy. The kind I like! This really should be a movie. The bad thing about a scary book, you have to turn the page, or in this case, keep listen to know what is going to happen. No pillow to hide behind to avoid the screen, there is NO SCREEN! The screen is in your head. I have too good of an imagination anyway and this author is very good about making you feel like you are there. Great world building, or in this case, house building. Twists, turns, and screams...no, the screams were mine, sorry! Good book!

    "Familiar story held together with good performance"

    If you've seen the Haunting of Hill House you can anticipate the story, with few changes. Didn't realize that young people were the primary characters, and could have lived without the romance and heavy breathing. Probably suited for young adults, but too predictable for adult ghost story fans. Excellent performance and entertaining but not in the "scare the heck out of you" category.

    "Finished it."

    It's ok probably won't be one I relisten though. There were chapters one or two that I did skip over which contained two very thirsty teens/new young adults were a bit much to listen to for me personally at least. I was here more for the ghosts then the romance aspect but it was enjoyable and sometimes creepy in the good way.
