Publisher's Summary

Medium and clairvoyant Simon Kincaide owns a Myrtle Beach boardwalk shop where he runs ghost tours, holds seances, and offers private psychic readings, making a fresh start after his abilities cost him his lover and his job as a folklore professor. 

Jaded cop Vic D'Amato saw something supernatural he couldn't explain during a shootout several years ago in Pittsburgh and relocated to Myrtle Beach to leave the past behind, still skeptical about the paranormal. But when the search for a serial killer hits a dead end, Vic battles his skepticism to ask Simon for help. 

As the body count rises, Simon's involvement makes him a target and a suspect. But Simon can't say no, even if it costs him his life and heart.

Perfect for lonely gay commuters

Best thing I've ever played on my commute. HOT and tender. Narration was perfect, the sexy talk and character acting made it an immersive escape. It's nice to feel things. Thank you.

4.5 stars for this suspenseful journey

I had to marinate on this one for a bit and then go back and listen to parts of it again to make sure I could write this review correctly. I flip flopped between 4 and 4.5 stars, but in the end, decided to give it the higher rating because once I started listening, I didn't want to stop.

Story: 4.5 stars
Simon and Vic are attracted to each other, feelings are developing, but something could come between them. On top of that Vic has to find a killer and Simon is caught in the middle. The story is good and full of intrigue, especially with the psychic abilities thrown in. Add to that a cast of colorful characters, and you have a great story that pulls you in and you don't want to put down. At least I didn't.

Narration: 4 stars
I always think that the narration adds to the story, and it did in this case. However, there were a few times I got confused as to who was talking. I don't know if it was the way it was written (I've only listened and not read) or Kale Williams as the narrator. Usually, the voices were distinct and I could pick them out, but sometimes it would slip. That said, I enjoyed the narration and the spin Kale put on this story. He did make it his own. The intonations and inflections, plus the emotion he put into it, brought the story to live, and for the most part, I could hear Vic, Simon, and the other characters.

Overall: 4.5 stars
I'm giving Badlands by Morgan Brice, narrated by Kale Williams 4.5 stars and highly recommend you either listen to it or read it for yourself. The story is great and keeps you entertained and Kale will bring it to life. One click this one today.

Wonderful, fabulous

This book was truly awesome. The story was very interesting, exciting, thrilling, suspenseful. I listened to it while packing boxes for a move, a. VERY boring, dull experience, made almost enjoyable listening to this great story. Planning on buying another book by this author immediately.

Really good!

I've decided to listen to 1 'new to me' author once a month, and lucky me, I picked a good one to start!
The story was really interesting, I liked both Simon and Vic immediately, add in the secondary characters and the story, I was hooked.
The narration by Kale Williams kept me listening well into the wee hours. He is really good! I plan on looking for more audiobooks by either Morgan Brice or narrated by Kale Williams (both together would be an added bonus!👍)

Nice mystery

This is a mystery with little magic thrown in. The two main characters come from a palace of mistrust and skepticism of how they approach several murders and each other. I haven't read anything by this author but have now several books on my wishlist. Kale williams is a wonderful narrator, his voice is pleasant and there is enough variation to each character to tell them apart. This story takes place in Mrytle Beach SC. He doesn't try to layer on the accent which being from the south I appreciate. Some narrators miss the mark with southern accents so thick it sounds cartoonish or like a hick. Different states have their unique qualities and if you don't spend time with these people you may make someone from SC sound like a Texan. This is not the case with the native characters.

Magic and Mayhem

Great story, the characters are great, and the storyline just drags you in.
Vic is a no-nonsense cop, and Simon is not only a believer but also a practitioner in the paranormal. And when they meet its heat at first sight, but with Vic's doubts about Simon knowing things he shouldn't, and a serial killer on the loose, their relationship is rocky.
The Narrator's voice is soothing, lulls you into the story. Each character is portrayed with a different inflection, that just by the voice alone you know what character is speaking.

GOOD STORY

Enjoyable. The mystery and interactions between the two main characters are absolutely wonderful. Kale Williams narrated/performed beautifully and brings the story to life. Exciting and lots of tensed moments. Excellent. This is the first book of Morgan Brice for me and I love it.. I hope there will be more books for this series.
