Publisher's Summary

They thought the harvest was over. But a darker evil is about to be revealed....

It has been more than a year since the offspring of Black River’s oldest families made their final stand against the evil Bell Witch. Their victory took a heavy toll and left the survivors scarred and estranged from their blood lines. But now, as they return home to their small, quiet town, they are shocked to discover a new evil, festering among the shadowy trees....

Without the threat of the Witch’s bloody harvest, the family elders have fallen into chaos. Internal squabbling has left them blind to this new enemy in their midst. Local legends have barely begun to fade when a group of tourists go missing. Some say the Witch has returned. But Basheba, Mina, and the others believe it could be something even worse.

As the survivors dig deeper, they discover that one of their own may have been corrupted by an ancient evil - a power greater than anything they have faced before. But is the Bell Witch behind all this? Has she returned once again to wreck vengeance on the families she cursed centuries ago?

Or does someone else lurk in the shadows, plotting to seize power for themselves?

what happened??

Series started good, but.... This feels like the most rushed of the series. There are way too many unexplored plot threads and storylines go unfinished. The book ends without any resolution or answers to the overall plot. The reading is as good as the previous 3 books in the series - that's the best I can say.

Should have quite while ahead.

This book is sadly a continuation of a series that frankly feels like it should have ended with the last book. After a fairly heroic and satisfactory grim ending to the last book this seeks to undermine the characters hard work. From here on out the horror aspects are sadly lacking, instead replaced by a more survival, action horror feeling as monsters become little more then video game enemies to be mowed down. While it is true that keeping the same characters throughout a long running horror series poses challenges, there are better ways to handle it. While you can expect characters to become accustomed and desensitized to the monsters and horrors it makes the times that they are scared of an old trick seem forced. Over all this is the book were the author pivots from decent horror to something more akin to an urban fantasy, but fails to embrace the change.

Not bad...

Not bad.. kind of anticlimactic though. I guess I was looking for an awesome finish. Im a little disappointed. This book seems like a filler peice, like it hsd the potential to really dig deeper into the characters. I was really getting unto the characters but this one doesn't really have much of a story to it. and definitely not a scary book by any means. Im really hoping that the next book will get back to a really good story that has u excited to see what cones next

Amazing Work

This book carries the torch the box set of 1-3 put in front of us. Racing forward nothing is what it seems and blam, upper-cut to knock you on your butt! A great listen!

First book is easily the best

I’m really just finishing this out, the characters are all very well written but the plot only seems to get wilder and wilder as we go on in a “True Blood” kind of way...In a kitchen sink kind of way. I do want to know how it ends however so that says something.

Excellent!

After the events of the last book, the gang has to once again enter their home town cause things are happening that point to the witch being back, but Basheba thinks that it isn't her. Things feel different! This started slow but once it got going it was non stop. So much happens to each of them that I had to stop listening to just try to comprehend what was going on. The plot was fast paced and exciting and I can't wait to see how everything wraps up. The best thing about this series is the characters. Basheba and Cadwyn are my favourite. While their relationship is unusual, it's also awesome. They really care about each other. I'm not sure how many more books are left in the series but I'm looking forward to reading them. I have my suspicions about certain characters and I need to see if I'm right!! Once again the narrator was awesome. He reads this so well and I'm impressed with his tones and voices.

Captivating

I really have come to love the main 4 characters "including Buck of course 🙂" I fine myself rooting for their survival. They make me laugh, especially Cadwin, Bahshiba and Buck 😂 its a race against evil. Will they make it, I'd suggest listning to all five books to find out. I have the last one "The lathiathin" in my wish list! Best series I have heard in a long time.

Brilliant

another fantastic journey though a story I am so hooked on, amazing storyline and characters i feel for each of their self sacrifice and gutsy grit I am now due to listen to the last book and I feel sad before I have I do hope all get through this purgatory they have gone through together. Narrator as said previously brilliant bringing each character to life and the story.
