Haunting Jump-Worthy Moments!
The story of the Sinclair Resort Hotel, Lively and Minerva Deadmarsh, and Inspector John Harder continues to unfold. Lively and Minerva make some disconcerting discoveries and uncover answers that had eluded everyone until now. Inspector John Harder is not only searching for answers, his missing officers but now his wife. All these stories are unfolding together but separately. Is this a supernatural tale, a tale of dimensions, a tale of lost time, or something deadlier and eviler?
Katie Berry, the author, continues to weave the tale of the Sinclair Resort Hotel and create plot twists that are both fascinating and horrifying. Just when you think you know what’s going on, bam … she broadsides you with an expertly devised plot twist. Characters continue to evolve as their time in the hotel grows. Lively’s enthusiasm with meatloaf MRE’s is a bit terrifying. The dialog flows smoothly and authentically.
The narrator, Alex Knox gives another top-notch performance. His voices are consistent with the previous book and his ease at performing is obvious. I enjoy his use of unique voices and his cadence. He moves the story along smoothly and interjects the perfect amount and appropriate emotions. He is a joy to hear.
This is a series that I have enjoyed from the moment I started listening. It is through the work of Berry and Knox for the listener to lose themselves in the story. Like the first, this has some jump-worthy moments! I cannot wait to see where this story takes me.
