Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Charlisa Wahtomy-Alba

I don’t know how a lot of people like to start their day, but I decided that the start of my 8 hour shift at 6am was a good time to start this book. As I was standing at my cart getting medicine ready for a resident I thought that this book would get off to a bit of a slow start, but NO! It started out with something that I never expected. I had to stop what I was doing and just listen to the first few paragraphs thinking oh my gosh, she really did that? It was a good listen and I will most likely actually read the book at some point. I know all of us mothers out there would do anything to protect our children and the main character in this story was no exception. I highly recommend you read the book or at the very least give it a listen.

Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Nina Maes

This was a great listen. I am not very big fan of zombies or apocalypse. I have to say this was a gripping experiences I loved the fast paced story. This one will grab you and keep you to the very end. I seen this story not so much as zombies, but of a mother’s true love for her child. The lengths a mother will go through to protect what is part of her. This is a story of love, determination and strength beyond anything else. I highly recommend this book.

Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Laura Jones

Necrosis takes place in a world where a virus has taken over, leaving those who are infected as strong zombie creatures who wreak havoc on the living. Amy is determined to keep her daughter Lilah safe through the aftermath, which proves to be a difficult feat. During a very close call, the mother and daughter find a group of survivors who rescue them from a hoarde of zombies who almost overcome the pair. They are able to find a little bit of beauty amongst the devastation of this new world when they’re brought into the shelter of this new group, and Amy is pleasantly surprised to reunite with an old childhood friend. This short story shows the lengths a mother will go to in order to protect her child. It was very well written and the performance kept my attention throughout. I look forward to more from this author!

Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Callie Luna

Necrosis is the short story about a mother and daughter trying to stay alive during a zombie apocalypse. It is a fast-paced story that keeps the tension on survival. It shows how much any mother would do to help their children survive. The descriptions are perfect and help to build the world all the way to the last scene. C. L. Schneider is a master at creating intense combat and making you root for the characters.

The narrator Jess Jacob does a great job bringing the tension of the story to life. I can hear the anguish, despair, and desperation in her voice. I highly recommend Necrosis as the audio book due to how much the story came to life with these fantastic elements.

Necrosis by C.L. Schneider

Narrated by Jess Jacob

 

This author is one of my favorites. This book starts off fast paced and continues that way through the whole story. If you are a Zombie fan, this is the story for you.  This story is packed with action and the ending will blow you away.

This book is narrated by Jess Jacob. She has an amazing voice and really brought this story to life. I’m looking forward to listening to more stories narrated by her.

Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Deb Robinson

A mother’s love is like no other on earth no matter the species.  In desperate times this love will conquer what is needed to survive.

 

As children we look up to our mother’s or guidance and perhaps sacrifice.  

 

This is a story of that ultimate sacrifice from Amy to her daughter Lyla.  In a world of the unknown with deadly viruses at play, they struggle to survive second by second.  

 

This is a book about zombies but with a very heartfelt story of a mother’s love in the face of deadly choices.  The narrator was excellent and kept you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole book.  Her intonation brought the struggle and heartbreak alive.  Excellent story and narration.  

Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Shelly Kittell

5 out of 5 stars

This is not your usual zombie apocalypse book. It’s also a story of redemption and mother/daughter love. There is no stronger love than sacrificing yourself to rescue your daughter from a buried subway and possible zombies. I found the story so intriguing that I had to keep listening. The action, drama and romance is wonderful in this story. Such a well-written story, this the best zombie story I have read in a long time. The characters are well-developed and well-thought out. The ending throws me for a loop but soo, soo very good. You have to read this book. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Cindy Mayberry

A mother will do all she can to protect her children. In this story the mother is my hero. It did not matter how scary things got, this mother did all she could to protect her daughter. This story is intense and fast paced. The author  has a great imagination, one that will convince you to follow her. I don’t normally read stories about zombies, but this story caught my interest. I am glad I did. The story is non-stop action. The ending is one you won’t want to miss out on. Besides, the author has written many books and has never let me down.

Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Amanda Glaspie

This was powerfully and beautifully written. The details and descriptions were incredibly vivid and made me a little squeamish at times. The emotions felt in each sentence were strong. The narrator did a wonderful job with her vocal inflections and telling the story.

Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Bobbi Wagner

This is not my first audio book by this author but it is one of my favorites. I enjoyed listening to this book. I enjoyed the narrator and their tone of voice. I enjoyed how they changed tones for characters which made them engaging. The characters are unique and creative. This is a shorter story that certainly packs a punch with adventure and had me coming back for more. This is an easy and entertaining story to listen to. I enjoyed this audiobook and I highly recommend it.

Necrosis Audiobook by C.L. Schneider – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟   5 Stars
This was a fantastic audiobook. This story gave me apocalypse survival, love, fight and sacrifice.
A deadly disease hits hard everywhere. The only way to survive was to fight the infected undead. Amy and her daughter are trying to survive and fight back the deadly virus that has infected, loved ones and most of human mankind. With the infected closing in with Amy protect  her daughter at all costs?
This is a fantastic story, and I highly recommend listening to this book. It’s not all about zombies. It is a story of survival of the fittest and the love you to protect the ones you care about the most.

The Misery House (The House on the Hill Book 1) by David Kummer – Review by Felicia Bates

The Misery House (The House on the Hill #1)The Misery House by David Duane Kummer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was really excited to give The Misery House a try based solo on the synopsis as I had never heard of this author before. This was one of those stories that had me absolutely hooked from the very first sentence and captivated to the very end. I liked that the chapters varied in perspective, really allowing the reader the “big picture”. This novel left me craving more by the end and gave me a new author to keep an eye on!

The Misery House (The House on the Hill #1)The Misery House by David Duane Kummer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Misery House is the first book in the House on the Hill series, and told from multiple POV. The book takes place is the quaint little town of New Haven, where everyone knows everyone, and nothing interesting ever happens. Growing up in a town just like this one, I immediately felt comfortable and familiar with the setting. That is, until things start happening. A local grocery store burns down, and two bodies are found inside. Then, someone goes missing. Are they connected? And if so, who, or what, is to blame? Could it be the new family in town? It soon becomes apparent that the creepy old house on the hill at the edge of town might be the connection. The locals call the house The Misery House, and nothing good is said about it. From multiple perspectives, you learn that everyone mutually fears the house, possibly for good reason. How is the house connected or involved? Where did it all start, and why? The Misery House reels you in and keeps you guessing and wondering. Unfortunately not ALL the questions are answered, as the book ends on a cliffhanger. I do like how the book kept me engaged enough to want to pick up the next one and see where this will end up, and the story itself was interesting and immersive. Job well done to the author for skillfully bringing all the perspectives full circle, and I will be happy to read more from him.

This was an entertaining and spooky read! This is not my typical genre, but I enjoyed the story overall. The author introduced and told the story from multiple points of view which helped me engage with the story. I did find myself wanting a little more out of the character development, however, I did enjoy plot, setting, and development of the story. It gives you all the spooky feels of a haunted house story with an underlying mystery at hand! For reasons which will become obvious upon reading I can’t wait to see the rest unfold in a future installment!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In “The Misery House,” skillfully crafted by David Kummer, a gripping and chilling tale unfolds as part of “The House on the Hill” series, with this volume just beginning an exciting journey. As a devoted fan of David Kummer’s work, I eagerly anticipate whatever captivating stories this imaginative author has in store for the future.
Set in the quaint rural town of New Haven, the narrative unravels with disturbing events centered around the ominous Misery House. This foreboding structure conceals more than mere secrets within its haunting walls. Amidst the unsettling atmosphere, the Woods family and their dwelling on the hill become central figures, entangled in the web of danger that lurks at every turn.
From the outset, the book enthralls readers with its spine-chilling allure, leaving them unable to resist its gripping pull. Death looms around each corner, infusing the story with an eerie intensity. The journey that unfolds is nothing short of exceptional, capturing attention from start to finish.
“The Misery House” is a masterful blend of thrill and intrigue, keeping readers on the edge until the final page. You are left with unanswered questions since it is part of a series. As much as I dislike this, I look forward to the next book! Its unpredictability makes it the best story, captivating readers with every twist and turn. Once immersed in its pages, it becomes nearly impossible to put the book down.

This book is a well written thriller. Told from multiple POV, it builds the suspense as you are going through and it keeps the page turning. There are so many elements to the story, all of which point to the Misery House. I couldn’t wait to see how things would play out.

The Misery House (The House on the Hill #1)The Misery House by David Duane Kummer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book number one of this thrilling series and it does not disappoint.

The small town atmosphere created within this story is quaint, close knit and felt safe enough to leave their doors unlocked at night. Very unassuming and typical of an old fashioned lifestyle that is the appeal of living in such conditions.

The small town was shaken at the core after a suspicious fire took the lives of two individuals, one of which is a child. To make matters worse, a newlywed couple has gone missing. For a community so used to being supportive and open with each other, they find themselves questioning the latest events, and the possibility of not feeling safe again.

The community struggles to make sense of things, the lack of clues and the thought of hidden secrets belonging to an individual or group of folks who are less than upstanding and downright dangerous.

This thriller has all of the makings of a great introduction into The House On The Hill series. In true great horror story fashion, it brings to mind that the plot could be easily adapted into a stirring movie or series.

I cannot wait to see what happens next after the electrifying cliff hanger.

I give this story 4 out of 5 stars.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book sucked me in right from the start. I typically don’t read soft horror or paranormal psychological thrillers, but I could not put this damn book down! It’s so good! It’s told from the perspective of the Woods family in split POVs, with a couple third person chapters thrown in there too. I’ve never read anything by this author before, but he’s definitely one of my new go-tos. The only thing about this book that upset me was the ending, since it ends in a cliffhanger because it’s part of a trilogy. However, the writing style is immaculate. It’s a very quick and easy read: Under 300 pages. Y’all, do not wait on this book. It’s absolutely fantastic and 100% worth the read. And for the author, thank you. And hurry up with book 2!!

Rise of the Hunter (Blood Prophecy Series) by Barb Jones – Review by Kirsten Berkebile

This is the fourth book in the Blood Prophecy series and it is the first book of the new trilogy for the Tall Dark Man. While I love a good book, I will be honest with y’all. I had a hard time following along, from the different perspectives to the action packed parts of the story. This is the only book from Blood Prophecy that I have read, so maybe I need to read the other three books first. There is always going to be a good vs evil fight but I really see that in this book.

This is book one in The House on the Hill series and what a start. The author does a great job of creating the atmosphere, keeping the reader guessing and describing scenes in a way that makes it feel like you are actually there. The only downside for me was the story didn’t flow as smoothly as I would have liked. Telling the story from different points of view was interesting as you got to read different people’s perspectives and their fears but parts felt a bit stilted which made parts hard for me to read. However overall i enjoyed the story and I can’t wait to see where we are taken next.

This story is about a small town called New Haven. It’s a quiet little place, nothing really happens so when strange things start to happen it causes people in the town to worry. Are the strange happening because of a house that is abandoned on the hill? Is something evil lurking within its walls?
And when the evidance starts to point to a local family the Woods can they solve the mystery and prove their innocence or is the evil that’s lurking going to be aiming towards them? Can they protect each other and the town?
I can’t wait to read the rest of the series and find out what happens

Blood Prophecy 4: Rise of the Hunter by Barb Jones – Review by Roxsanne Lesieur.

Rise of the HunterRise of the Hunter by Barb Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The world is split between good and evil, dark and light and there is a constant battle between the two which most people don’t see, or hear about and it is this battle which is part of the two Prophecies, a person filled with dark magic with try and kill the Queen and her followers and one of these battles has already taken place. The one representing the darkness was thrown into a deep, dark pit by the Queen and her followers, but while they all thought this person was dead, they were actually stealing the life forces of those thrown in with them and using these powers to build a secret demon army, they were employing dark witches to carry out their demands and see to their every need, meanwhile, the Queen was carrying on with her peace, completely unaware of the danger building beneath her feet.

As the months pass and the darkness begins to take hold, the demon army is growing stronger and more numerous and plans are falling into place, but there is a third prophecy which the Queen is unaware of and this is the one which is the darkest and most destructive of all, one where the representative of evil separates the Queen from her followers one by one until all fall under the power of the darkness and serve it unconditionally. A prophecy where a wolf, a witch and an angel are the keys and a hunter, a demon army and dark witches are the locks, it is not an easy path, but one the bringer of darkness is all too happy to follow in order to seek their revenge against the Queen and all that she stands for.

Will the darkness rise along with the hunter, or will good again triumph over evil? This is a twisted tale of the battle between light and darkness, as their representative forces work to either keep the balance, or destroy it. As the supernatural forces in the world decide which side they belong to, secrets, lies, bargains and mysteries mix to create a world where nothing is as it seems and the twists and turns will leave you reeling in this enigmatic story.

The fact that this one dives in a little deeper about the gods and the prophecy’s first expression and being written deepen the story realm by a lot. The history is so much fun to hear.
