Publisher's Summary

In a sleepy steel-mill town, the ultimate battle between Good and Evil is about to begin....

Sinnissippi Park, in Hopewell, Illinois, has long hidden a mysterious evil, locked away from humankind by powers greater than most could even imagine. But now the malevolent creatures that normally skulk in the shadows of the park grow bolder, and old secrets hint at a violent explosion. 

The brewing conflict draws John Ross to Hopewell. A Knight of the Word, Ross is plagued by nightmares that tell him someone evil is coming to unleash an ancient horror upon the world. Caught between them is 14-year-old Nest Freemark, who senses that something is terribly wrong but has not yet learned to wield the budding power that sets her apart from her friends. 

Now the future of humanity depends upon a man haunted by his dreams and a gifted young girl - two souls who will discover what survives when hope and innocence are shattered forever....

really superb piece of writing

This is really enjoyable portrayal of small town USA beautifully crafted in which fantasy and magic is so carefully woven as to make it real. it has none of the otherworldliness of off world fantasy but more the realm that lies fleeting in the corner of your eye, things that go bump in the night or that feeling that makes your hackles rise. if you love the gentle cadence of books like to kill a mocking bird then you will love this. finally there is a nostalgia for a saner time than we have now and a reflection that the demons are perhaps on the ascendancy and we have lost our way.

Boring and depressing

A missed opportunity to write another “pilgrims progress” poke yourself in the eye and you’ll know the pain of listening or reading this depressing book. I love most of the terry books books.

A nice distraction.

It starts a little slow, to fill in the needed background, but picks up nicely.

Narration is terrible

I loved reading this book (and everything else by Terry Brooks) but the narration on this is bad enough that I wish I could return it. After experiencing so many wonderful narrators through this app, I didn’t really think I would run into this problem, but it was practically unlistenable. I couldn’t even get through 30 minutes of it. Don’t waste your money. Just read the book yourself. Or have Alexa or Siri read it to you from your kindle app. That’s still better.

Easy listening

At first the voice actor doing different voices for the different characters was a bit annoying, but later it really helped to identify people speaking when the author didn't specifically state who was speaking.

very hard to get into it

I didn't like the narrator and the story dragged on and on at first and most of the story I felt was more like a teen read
