Something old and deadly has awoken.
When two teenagers go missing from the small, rural town of Sallow Bend, the residents come together to search for them. Little do they suspect that finding the wayward girls will be the start of their problems. An old evil is rising, and only one man seems to realize that everyone is in danger and this is not the first time it’s happened. With the carnival in town, people want to have a good time, but for many, this will be the worst time of their lives.

“It’s happening again isn’t it?” Yep.
Two girls disappear in the woods of Sallow Bend sending the local townsfolk into a panic.
“It’s happening again isn’t it?”
I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook and was chomping at the bit to get to it since I have been meaning to read Alan’s work for a while. Dude did not disappoint.
Very well done storyline and expertly narrated by the one and only Joe Hempel. Who doesn’t love small town horror with a carnival and possessed children running amok throughout the town.

Another hit for Baxter!
Over the last few years I have quickly become a huge fan of Alan Baxter. The range in which he can write is incredible. Whether it’s a creature feature like The Roo, or a cosmic horror collection like The Gulp/Fall series, he’s nailed each trope. I was excited to see how he handled more of a slow burn in this small town folk horror. I was not disappointed! The dread and mystery builds with each page and all comes full circle in a satisfying conclusion. Joe Hempel did an amazing job narrating as usual, and it really brought this story to life. Highly recommended!

Missing kids and creepy carnies? Sign me up! This one was an almost instant hit with me. It not only had a great plot, but sympathetic and relatable characters, as well as a good bit of creepy, atmospheric ambiance. I couldn't help but relate to Caleb because I, too, am weird and solitary, and find other people exhausting. His character drew me in immediately and kept me entertained, constantly thinking "Same, Caleb." This was a first for me from this author but I will absolutely be back for more.
