Summary

It was supposed to be an easy article about Cain Archer.

Never did I think it would lead me straight into the arms of a serial killer.

When the magazine I worked for sent me to write a piece on The Elysian, and the recluse architect who created it, I didn’t know what to expect.

It certainly wasn’t him.

He was supposed to be cold and cruel, but to me, he was Intoxicating. Magnetic. And impossible to quit. The deeper I fell, the harder it became to ignore a voice inside my head telling me that death followed Cain.

I wanted to be wrong. Maybe it was all in my head. But I needed to find the answers.

I became entangled in a dangerous web when the police found the brutally murdered body of a woman he knew. I couldn’t help but follow the leads, no matter where they took me.

Nothing prepared me for what I found….

What if the person you took into your bed isn’t at all what he seemed? What if he’s the monster you’ve been searching for?

Wow!!

This book you’ll need to block a day off to listen to, as once you start you won’t be able to stop!

Great story that kept me gripped, I only wish there was a bit more of the murder mystery included as it felt a little rushed towards the end. The epilogue ending was *chef’s kiss*.

Narration by Sebastian York and Ava Erickson was fantastic as usual.

Definitely worth a credit.

I WAS TOTALLY HOOKED.. & LOVED THE RIDE

Ava Harrison has written an addictive, enjoyable age-gap romance with a sinister prologue that puts you on high alert for more to come from The Compass Killer. When twenty-five year old ambitious Investigative Journalist Layla goes to interview thirty-five year old Cain Archer there’s an instant connection between her and the innovative, handsome Billionaire Architect. However, the brilliant visionary has a reputation for being cold, emotionless, detached and never has (or wants) relationships.. and yet, with one look between them, sparks fly and chemistry quickly builds. Like a moth to flame, during Layla’s five day visit to his unique, innovative, nearly finished new community, they’ll both be powerfully and irresistibly drawn to the other despite the hurdles in their way. And both will find tenderness, beauty and love.. but both will get burned too. There’s a sense of mystery and mental finger pointing running through their blossoming romance where you question “is he..?” Then, 70% in, all the secrets get pieced together and twists and chilling truths are uncovered by Layla.. but she would've been safer keeping them dead and buried. The Elysian is Cain’s vision of a perfect world.. but will it be when The Compass Killer strikes again? Both narrators were great but (sadly) there was only about 10% of Sebastian 🥲 with Caine’s POV.. and Ava skilfully read the rest.

Worth a credit? Yes, an enjoyable and entertaining mystery wrapped around a sweet sexy.. but very tricky, insta romance.

A slow build

It takes several chapters to really get into this story and then the real action/mystery doesn’t happen until the last few chapters. I would still recommend this book but just know it is a slow build.

What?

Wow, that was interesting. very good book, the ending leaves so so many open questions. I did not like the way it ended without a definite finish. Yes, it did end however I didn't see it End! More of an ending, conclusion, finish. It just left so much .... what if this or what if that? So other than a less than spectacular end, I enjoyed the Book very much

🧭 🧭 Hold until the end, so you find the way! 🧭🧭

Brilliant! Harrison never disappointed plus the stellar performances by A Erickson and S York, my favorite narrators. I wished more of York's character, Despite of loving A Erickson's sweet skild voice, I prefer when it is 50%/50% between the characters' narration. The plot started very slow, and you must hold on until is unfolded. Be patient, and you will be not disappointed with the story, which is about second chance, forgiveness, and overcoming trauma. The end was interesting and the Author left it a little open on the end, who knows this is the beginning of a new serie???? This story doesn’t rely on another book. I enjoyed from the beginning to the end. Bravo!👏🏼🙌🏼 Happy listening!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great narration, slow start.

The story had a slow start but picked up with a surprising end! The female lead was repetitive/whiny throughout the story.

Just so-so.

Here Lies North is almost 9 hours long, and is very slow-moving until the last 1.5 hours. I even thought--momentarily--that the book was just going to have to end with a big cliffhanger b/c nothing noteworthy happened for so long of the story. But Ava Harrison was able to get it all wrapped up. Like I said: very slow moving. Very little understanding of the two main's connection, other than Cain was just not as messed up as he was describing himself to the reader. Additionally, his assistant's assertions about him were awkward and unexplained.

The last hour and a half moved fairly quickly to bring the story to a close. And the characters became very melodramatic, which I felt detracted from the events and the reveals. It was a bit silly. Overall, not mind blowingly great, but okay.

Narrators were fine. York is generally good, and Erickson was good in this as well, if a bit drawled from time to time.

No Chemistry, Just Rambling.

I rarely write reviews, but this book was a waste for me. No chemistry between the main character and the mystery itself, while fun. Could have bee. about an hour long instead of the whole book. The entire thing is just back and forth ramblings I’m the characters’ heads, poorly written plot teases and bad communication between two people in an unhealthy relationship. The dialogue is so stilted. The author doesn’t use contractions! Who on earth talks like that?! I hate to be critical, but I had to force myself to finish this one. Not a fan.

Nice, but too many loose ends

Nice quick read. Cain was great and had an interesting back story. The story did have some gaps that didn't make sense. The serial killer part of the story was so rushed. We never understood why Stone became that serial killer. Did something happen to him in his younger life or was it just the bipolar disorder. Also, the people Stone killed was strange, like how did he select them if they never interacted with North/Cain. What really made me starch my head was the last thing Cain says. Did he actual kill the other women or get his PI to do it and cover it up. If so, that is a major flaw in this book. I would rather never get invested in a love story were someone turns out to be a cold-blooded murderer. Self-defense, yes or during a fight or accident but never just cold blooded murder to shut someone up. To many loose ends in this story. Ava Harrison is so much better than this. The concept of the story is great, but there are so many gaps and unfinished.
