    Great story, great narration.

    Audiobook review. Performance 5 Story 5 Overall 5 Great story, great narration. I'm a newcomer to Morgan Brice's writing. In all honesty, I didn't really think I would care for urban fantasy/paranormal stories. But earlier this summer I was offered the chance to review a copy of another book of hers (Treasure Trail) and I loved it. So, when a review copy of the audiobook of The Rising was offered, I was happy to agree to listen to and review it. But The Rising is book two in the series and I wanted to read or listen to the other books first. So, over the last few days I've binge listened to The Badlands series - #1 Badlands, #1.5 Lucky Town and #2 The Rising. All I can say is I'm really glad to have listened to all of them. Kale Williams performance of the stories was great; these are the first audiobooks of his that I've listened to. Morgan Brice's writing style flowed well for me. The stories each grabbed me right from the beginning and didn't want to let go. All three of these books are about the same couple, Simon Kincaide (a psychic medium) and his boyfriend, Vic D'Amato (a homicide cop). Book one is about the beginning of their relationship and a pretty rocky beginning it was. Books 1.5 and 2 focus on cases that they end up getting involved in. While I love reading/listening to series in order I think I would have been OK if I had just jumped in at book 2 because Ms. Brice does a great job of giving you information from the previous books that is pertinent to the story. It was kind of fitting that I listened to The Rising during the first week of September. The story has Myrtle Beach waiting for a big storm and the effect that it has on ghosts in the area. I live in SW Florida and we were on pins and needles for a bit to know whether or not hurricane Dorian was going to affect us (fortunately we were spared). There is a lot going on in this story and the blurb does a much better job of describing things than I can. I was totally captivated by Kale Williams performance of the story and I'm looking forward to listening to more books performed by him. There are a couple of short stories in the series that I haven't read yet but I'll be doing that soon. I don't know if there are more books planned for this series or not but I'd sure like to read more adventures with Simon and Vic. A copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

    Entertaining paranormal suspense

    I discovered this author and series this fall via a freebie collection of Halloween short and quickly added the first book to my to-be-read list. Of course my TBR being what it is means I haven’t gotten round to reading the first in the Badlands series yet, but The Rising reads just find as a standalone with the author giving sufficient background on the characters and their relationship to follow along. The Rising was one of those entertaining mystery/suspense novels that kept me engaged from start to finish. Not only are the characters likable, but also the unique storyline kept me guessing and was a lot of fun to read. When I first discovered the Badlands series, I was drawn by the smooth writing style and good action scenes, but it was the lively dialogue that really caught my attention. That was especially apparent in The Rising. The author weaves the narrative and dialogue together easily, managing to bring the characters to life and quickly hook me as a reader. And though the paranormal suspense trope starring a character who can see/interact with ghosts isn’t all that unique, this one never felt predictable with unique scenarios and resolutions I hadn’t predicted. I also really liked Simon and Vic together. They’re still finding their stride as a long-term couple, but the chemistry is palpable while leaving room for their connection to develop and deepen as the series continues. If you enjoy paranormal suspense, I’d definitely recommend the Badlands series. I’m very happy I discovered it and even happier I didn’t wait to dive right in and read The Rising, even if it was out of order. *eARC received via LesCourt Author Services.
