I like well-written horror and Into the Drowning Deep is a great example. I started this book on Audio, narrated by Christine Lakin, and finished on eBook. The audio performance is great, but I read faster than I can listen. Remember those Disney read-along records from the 70’s? I wish they’d bundle the eBook with […]

He protects us against the Wood, and we’re grateful, but not that grateful.”
