This is another welcomed book from Evans, after almost a year since The Stranger came out on audio, and another warning it is probably no one you want to listing to late at night, by yourself, especially in a older creakier house. Narrator SW Salzman makes it creepy enough with the voices he uses, you won't want anything else to freak you out, as this book is not for those faint at heart. But both author and narrator do such a awesome job that you just can't stop once you get started, so I am warning you now, last time, really no turning back.

To say that this book has non stop action is not enough to do it justice, the action really never ends in this book and the suspense at times you can cut with a knife. I had the audio narrated by Fred Wolinsky and he sucks you in to the world and brings you along as part of the team, and at times you really wish you could help them in their quest. Mr. Wolinsky's voices for each of the character is awesome and you will come to love each and every one of them as friends they will become.

This was a great story mixing modern with ancient lore, with a lot of action, suspense and there are a few twists and turns that will keep you on your toes, but all and all it is a book that captures your interest and you wont want to put it down. I really hope we get to see more of Genie and Quentin soon.

This book is full of action, suspense and more that a few twists and turns. It also has some nice Native American folk lore added in that lends itself nicely to the book. This is a awesome book for many age groups and shows great diversity, it will also appeal to reluctant readers as well as children growing up in many different circumstances.
This is a very entertaining graphic novel especially for me since I was a big fan of the Lost Boys as a movie when I was kid (UGH dating myself there), I could still hear the sound track playing in the background as I read this graphic novel. But it was a blast from the past and I really liked it. The illustrations were awesome, as was the story line!!! It was really so cool, and I hope to actually be able to own these some day (public librarians do not actually make enough to own every book they want and live), but these actually rank really high on my list, sorry Ironman.
This story is not for the faint of heart, but if you like good old fashion horror with a updated twist, than Falls Breath is the town for you. This little beach, touristy town is now a lawless everything for itself spot on the map, what they don't know is if it is this way everywhere else in the USA. With all the communication and most of the transportation knocked out it doesn't look like they will find out either. It leaves every person for themselves and that gets messy.
This action packed, suspenseful book will leave you surprised more than once, and that will keep you on your toes, no figuring out the ending in this book, so just read and enjoy. It is a lot of fun, I wonder if there will be more to see what happens later, or if this was it, either or it was still awesome.

This was a bitter sweet book for me, it was just as action packed, suspense filled, and had all the twists and turns I have come to love, but I was sad that this was the last of the series, I don't think I was prepared to let Kara, Braeden, Stone, and First Vagabond go yet, they where such awesome strong characters, that I have grown to love. Listening to the series with Kara Kovacich Stewart narrating and giving each of the character a voice I have each of them, and the whole land of Ourea, pictured in mind just through her awesome descriptions. Between the authors words and the narrators voice talent I was there fighting for Ourea, and it was awesome, and I will miss it tremendously.
