Publisher's Summary

Emerging from the winter storm, it appeared to be a sanctuary, shelter from the freezing blizzard and the ravages of a desperate, final battle. But instead, the beckoning gates of the mysterious abbey are the entrance to a different kind of hell. The frightening shadows and maze of confusing hallways and rooms conceal things much more terrifying than the enemy beyond the walls. Sergeant Muller and his German Army platoon have witnessed countless horrors since the start of the war, but they still don't believe in ghosts or the dead returning from the grave. That's all about to change.

    Any additional comments?

    I greatly enjoyed this book even though it was quite slow at the start. G.M. Hague explains in a forward to this book that he isn't going to affect any accents in his narration for the German soldiers. His explanation made perfect sense. That said, I found it very distracting to try and remember that I was hearing a story about German men and French women while listening to a (very strong) British accent tell it. As a film maker/story teller, I think it just would have been a better choice to hire a different narrator.

    Once I got used to the weirdness of the narration accent, I thought this was a really interesting story. Hague takes a common trope (people not leaving when things get scary) and turns it on it's head by making it impossible for them to leave. I love who turns out to be the villains (no spoilers!) and how it ends. This is a period piece horror story that I would recommend to anyone who doesn't mind the wrong accent narrating the tale and who enjoys historical horror!

    "Great read"

    Footprints in the Snow by G.M. Hague was a good read. This is a horror story that is set in 1944 during the war. The German soldiers seek refuge in a church, but the men of the patrol start to die. This was a good read.

    "Horror Story 3"

    This is a good, not great read.A typical 'people are stranded and need to take shelter then people die' type of horror book.Nazis are caught in a snowstorm and take shelter in a convent that doesn't show up on maps.A lot of questions arise before the truth is known.Mr Hague is a fine narrator.“I was given this free review copy audiobook and have voluntarily left this review."

    "Slow burn"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story is very slow. The first two thirds of the book doesn't have anything significant happening. It's a slow build-up for the last part of the story. The climax has some meat in it, but by then I'm already tired. I wish there were some more action in the book.


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

    The narrator's voice was clear and each character had distinct voice.

    "WWII Ghost Story... creepy and interesting"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    I would definitely call this book more of a paranormal historical fiction book, rather than a horror story. It was definitely creepy at times and I thought it was interesting to hear the author read his own book. I also found myself having a difficult time relating to Sgt. Muller and his platoon of Nazis. I mean, considering the atrocities the Nazis did during WWII, there was no relate-ability to me. I think it would have been more impactful if they were Allied soldiers.

    It took awhile for me to get into the story. I wish the story focused more on the last third of the book. I understand the build up. I just think it took too long. The author did a good job with the narration. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

    "Good paranormal historical fiction"

    I have listened to other books by G.M. Hague and remember really enjoying hearing him read his own book as he is intimate with the story and that comes through as he tells it. This one was the same. I think the story was definitely better being read by him. I also really enjoy his accent and since his voice is calm and soothing I could listen to him read most of the books I listen to.
    I wouldn’t call this story horror. It is more like a historical fiction with a slight paranormal twist. That doesn’t mean that it is a bad story, just don’t come looking for a full on horror story. I did enjoy the book but thought it was a bit slow to get to what I would call the horror aspects of it. Like the other books in the series this is a stand alone story so no need to listen to the previous volumes to understand what is going on.

    "Pretty good ghostly story."

    A platoon of WWII German soldiers seeks solace from the winter cold in a French Abbey. Little did they realize that the terror inside the Abbey was worse than the terror of war outside. Will any of them make it back to their lines? A pretty good ghostly story. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

    "Pretty good."

    This book was pretty good. It is a WWII historical fiction ghost story. A German unit gets stranded in enemy territory and takes shelter at a church. Strange nuns run the place and strange things begin to happen. It was a little slow but enjoyable and the ending was very good. My only problem was the narration, kind of. The author is Australian I believe, and I am so unused to hearing that kind of accent on a horror it threw me a little. The production was good and he added in some creepy music between chapters which was nice. There is a blurb in the beginning explaining he wasn't going to do a German accent because the would be speaking German anyway and his is to be similar to a translation. Overall if you are in to historical fiction go for it. I would listen to his work again. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

    Story
    "Supernatural tale in an old Abbey"
    If you could sum up Horror Story: Volume III in three words, what would they be?

    Claustrophobic. Horror. Doom.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Meuller. The badass seargent of the Wehrmacht unit. He was portray well; not just the usual ultra evil streotype (though he was that too!) but his character was well developed and the reader could understand the "logic" behind his decisions against the backdrop of the Ardennes offensive.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end... Don't want to spoilt it, but the end of the book was great.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    In this Abbey... Pray for death.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a rather large short story, definitely a novella. It was a little slow in parts, but that helped develop the characters well. It was a genuinely unsettling story. I really enjoyed listening to it.
