Reviews of Dark Fiction

14 by Peter Clines, narrated by Ray Porter

Usually, I don’t like to know too much about a book going into it. In this case, I’m SUPER happy about my policy because 14 is chock full of surprises!

At first, I thought this was a haunted house/apartment story. The mystery factor was strong and sucked me in right away. Slowly, as the tale unfolded, more and more information was discovered and this story morphed into something else entirely. I love when that happens!

I’m not going to say any more about the plot, but I will say that Ray Porter narrated the hell out this story! I’m off to see what other books are in the Threshold series, because this one was so much fun!

Highly recommended, especially on audio!

I bought this audio with my hard earned cash.

Padlocked doors. Strange light fixtures. Mutant cockroaches.

There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s. Because every room in this old Los Angeles brownstone has a mystery or two. Mysteries that stretch back over a hundred years. Some of them are in plain sight. Some are behind locked doors. And all together these mysteries could mean the end of Nate and his friends. Or the end of everything....
