The Emissary is a modern novel of fantasy and horror set in the mountains of North Carolina. From the author of The Flock comes his new novel The Emissary.

In the North Carolina mountains, the town of Jasperton has lost a fading enchantment that has protected it for almost one hundred years from an ancient curse. Martin and Amy Braun, separated and their marriage almost at an end over the death of their young son, suddenly find themselves reunited to care for a lost child who bears a striking resemblance to their deceased boy.

As the town begins to fall victim to the rising influence of an aged evil, they must decide if the child is an emissary for salvation or for the malignant forces gathering within the town.

Ok story

The story was OK. Not great but not bad either. I was hoping that it would be scarier.

The narration was really annoying, the country accents drawing out the pronunciation of each word made me lose focus on the story. I believe that I would have liked the story better if I had read it instead of listening to it. Overall entertaining and I plan on reading more from this author.
