Horror, weird tales, quiet stories of the supernatural... call them what you will, these six stories serve as a following to the first three dark offerings of Pray Lied Eve. This second installment is longer and delves more deeply into realms perhaps best left undisturbed. Sadness, thoughts of revenge, scenes of torture; many people find themselves exploring these things alone so Pray Lied Eve will offer to be your guide.
Have your mirror image ruined, and all sense of safety in your home with The Ringer. Explore the madness of the carnival after dark with Jack and the Box. Halloween Hopscotch sounds fun, but when everyone knows what you've done... or simply ignore the atrocities of the past and visit Midway Park. Witness nightmares come alive during the Widow’s Wake, and then leave it all As Is, Where Is.
Pray Lied Eve 2, Further Tales of the Untoward written by Lydia Peever. The narration is provided by D. Michael Hope. The total running time on this collection of short horror stories is 2 hours and 2 minutes. In the second collection of the authors work the listener is treated to 6 short stories. The Ringer, Jack and the Box, Hopscotch Halloween, Midway Park, As Is, Where Is, and Widow’s Wake. There is a short section that follows from the author that tells a bit about where some of the stories came from and a bit of her writing process. As a reviewer I enjoy these little things getting to know what helped create the story.
The entire collection was a fun scary listen. Ms. Peever really seemed to take the creepy level from the last collection of stories and distill them down in size but up in potency. The last collection had 3 stories with near the same running time we now get 6 stories. The one story that really stuck with me was Jack and the Box. Jack and the Box are the authors take on exploring the madness of the carnival after dark. Jack in a 12 years boy who looks 15 at least. He goes to the carnival during the day with his older friend and they find the Freaks and Geeks tent. Jack and his friend get a special invitation to come back at night for the special show after dark. Only Jack goes to the show. At a young age seeing some things will change a young man.
The entire collection of stories in Pray Eve Lied 2 does an excellent job of holding the listener’s attention during the 6 stories. The stories all have a great ability to hold the listener attention through some of the stories going on a weird, creepy, uncomfortable journey. An example would for this listener while hearing a Widow’s Wake. These stories may not take a listener where they would think they would go but the listening journey will be interesting and worth the trip.
The narration by D. Michael Hope was again a truly enjoyable audio performance. The narrator turned in another memorable cast of characters in this production. Mr. Hope performed Ms. Peevers work with style and flourishes and gave these characters life. Each character was given unique voices that were memorable and often times horribly creepy. The production quality of this audiobook is also the highest quality. I heard no problems during the entire performance. There were not any detectable flaws that I was able to hear during the entire performance such as loops, breaks, or buzzing. The production was crisp and clear. Lydia Peever Publishing delivered an excellent audiobook production.
