Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Science Fiction, 2013

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....

I enjoyed this audio book very much.

I enjoyed the story very much the narrator did an exceptional job bringing the story alive.
I rescheduled a social engagement so I could listen to the final 5 chapters of the book.

Fun, engaging and speckles of hilarity!

Wasn't sure what I was getting myself into but the reviews seemed good so I went ahead with it. Absolutely no regrets, this book is well performed, engaging and the characters although a bit cliche, are well developed. Highly recommended!

Amazing

Loved it! This is exactly what I was looking for. It had hints of JDITE by David Wong which I really enjoyed. The narrator was perfect and the characters had me feeling apart of their crazy gang.

my favorite narrator

the plotline was definitely very creepy but enjoyable. The narrator, as always, was fantastic. I very much enjoyed this book and recommend it

Interesting and Entertaining

It has a very slow start, but then little by little strange things begin to happen, and finally the novel takes you deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the Kavach Building. Well worth listening to. I'm looking forward to the next novels in the series.

A Wild Ride

This is a great story with wonderful narration that unravels mystery after mystery through twists and unexpected turns. You will scratch your head, hold your breath, and expand your understanding of physical reality and the things you have always accepted as normal.’

Terrible

Started out great, then jumped off the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down, once down, preceded to fall the stupid tree on ones self. If that sounds like your idea of a good book then enjoy.

My review matches the stupidity of this book.

Original & Amazing!

Wow, this story came out of nowhere and grew in to something amazing! Characters were rich and believable and story creation was enthralling. Once again Ray Porter delivers an AMAZING performance, I will read anything he narrates, truly he brings a book to life!
