Something is very wrong in Sallow Creek, Pennsylvania.  

Something is turning their neighbors and relatives into unstoppable monstrosities...monsters that are coming for them.

Horror and Comedy DO Mix!

Story 5/5 Narration - 5/5 "Within the Woods" by Tony Urban is one of the best coming-of-age tales I've read or listened to, and has to be in my top ten of the year. The narrator is very talented. As good as this story is, this is a case of must-listen-to if there ever was one! Highly Recommended

Enthralled!

If you love a book that sucks you in immediately and leaves you pondering the possibilities long after the epilogue is over, this is the book for you! Tony Urban has a knack for creating incredibly relatable characters that the reader can really connect to. The friendship between the characters transported me back to my own childhood and I felt like a participant in the group rather than an outside observer. The story was horrific, gory, gross, sad, nerve-wracking, frightening, and yet funny enough to have me laughing out loud many times. Reminiscent of Stranger Things, Within the Woods takes the reader along on a wild ride and leaves you hoping for a sequel when you’re finished!

Good characters but wished the story was longer.

As stated above I enjoyed the character interactions between the kids, but every other character felt kind of bland. Also the idea of a sluggish monster invading a small town but aside from its lethality & the dramatic discovery of its weakness I wished the creature could've been expanded upon. Also I wished the author didnt resort to so much crude language. Overall though it was an enjoyable listen, especially during Halloween.
