Jason Mott - And three free prequels to his debut novel The Returned, now a TV series.

So here is my review of all three, I listened to them audio as you will see..

As I said, I first saw the TV series then found these three books for free on audible and I was delighted.  These are short stories, each depicting the return of one person and the impact it has.

The narrator is very cool and calm in his story telling method which adds to the over all chilling effect of the stories.

That said, I found these stories to be very dark and for now, although I think this is a brilliant way to promote the full length novel, I will wait a bit before I buy the novel.

The TV series, although dark enough does not really convey the start reality of what it is like to have a loved one return from the dead, in that aspect these books should get a 5* rating for in these stories that reality is all too clear.  Unfortunately the narrator is so good at his job that these stories, although I did not listen to them one after the other left me drained.

If dark and gloomy is your thing, then you will adore this.  If not, why not give these a try in anyway they are free after all.


Here is a link to AMAZON where two of the three short prequels are free and you can link up to Audible from there so you can get your free audible copy if you would so choose.

  1. I didn't realize they were books. I will have to look into them. Now I have been watching Resurrection and it seems to be a decent show, I do wonder why they are returning but they haven't given the answer just yet. Awesome review.
