Summary

Seventy years ago, Briarwych Church was sealed for the second time. The great wooden door has remained shut and locked ever since. But now, in the present day, evil is stirring once more. 

Sent to live with new foster parents in Briarwych, Kerry and Mark soon set about exploring the village. When they're warned to stay away from the church, they naturally decide to go and take a closer look. And when the long-sealed door mysteriously swings open, they're drawn inside to meet a terrible fate. 

After 70 years, a policy of containment is no longer enough. A priest is sent to Briarwych, with the sole task of defeating the evil once and for all. But what really lurks in the shadows of Briarwych Church? Why did Judith Prendergast turn to evil? And by attempting to banish the ghost forever, is Father Liam Dermott walking straight into an ancient and deadly trap?

Still creepy!!

Once again, the tale of Briarwych Church is as creepy and scary as the first insta!ment!. This time it's two foster children who have to battle against the ghost in the church!. Don't want to give anything away as it's too good for that to happen,you'll have to listen to it yourselves listening to it is fantastic!. Once again it comes to life thanks to the narrators, different this time as they are the voices of the children plus other characters. I loved this story with one more in the trilogy to listen too but Amy Cross has surpassed herself once again!! You have to read if this genre is your thing!!

Not as scary as the first book

Reads like a Disney Channel special. I was let down by the lack of scariness and now realize this was probably for a target audience in their teens. Maybe it was the age of the main characters in this 2nd book along with the excellent portrayal by the narrator, but I felt it was too casual for me. I am hesitant to listen to the next book but I have a hard time with not finishing a series even if I really don't care too much for it.

Absolutely Splendid. 👍👍👍

This Story is absolutely splendid. I cant express how much I'm enjoying this series. Amy Cross has truly been blessed with the talent of writing and storytelling. The characters and storyline, magnificent. It gives you everything your looking for in a creepy, spooky, horror, ghost story. Now, regarding the narrator's, Matthew Houston and Jodie Hollie-Anne did a superb job in their narrations. They too have been blessed with a talent. They gave and brought each character to life excellently. I definitely look forward in listening to more of A.C. work, and the narration from these two voice actors. If your looking for an extremely good horror, spooky/ghost series, I highly recommend you start with this series.🤗
