My Review
**I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.**
First Contact is a horror novel about a paranormal real estate agent named Sloane who is determined to make contact with her dead fiance. Unfortunately for her, when she goes to a supposed haunted house for sale in Wisconsin, she gets way more than she ever could have bargained for.

Now, I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't say anything else about what, exactly, happens. I will say that I did like Sloane, even though she was a bit...frustrating at times. I get her determination and desire to explore and discover all the secrets, but sometimes you gotta learn to take a step back and just wait. Wait for someone else so you don't get yourself into some crazy predicament, or killed by ghosts, or something. 

In terms of other characters, I would have liked to have had Jonah fleshed out a little more. I liked him, but I wanted more from him. That would have been nice.

Story-wise, I really liked it. It was intense and flowed really well. It was paced nicely, not too quick and not too slow. It kept me intrigued and curious. 

The narrator, Kate Tyler, did a really nice job with the story. She brought Sloane to life and made her seem like someone you might know in real life. She also did a good job with the other characters. The old man, Alvin, sounded like a...well, I won't spoil anything about his character, but he's not very likeable. I will say that. And Kate made him sound like someone you wanted to push down a hill into oncoming traffic. 

It was definitely easy to follow along with the story, and which character was which. Kate gave them all their own voice, and it was nice to hear the variety and range. Some narrators make all of the characters sound very similar, but Kate made them all stand out in their own way.

I didn't notice anything strange or out of place with the story or the narration. It all flowed together nicely, and it kept me hooked. No weird or long pauses, no stuttering or stumbling, no reading too fast, etc. 

Kat Green wrote a really spooky haunted house story, and Kate Tyler brought it to life. I felt like I could have been there with Sloane at times.

Overall, I quite liked the audio book version of First Contact, and I'd recommend it to fans of haunted house stories/ghost stories.

Four stars from me!
Author Bio
Kat Green is the alias of authors KAT de Falla and Rachel GREEN.

Rachel Green has always believed in ghosts but saw her first full body apparition while working at an old movie theater in college. When she met Kat de Falla at a writer’s workshop, she knew she’d met a kindred spirit – one who was also sensitive to the hereafter. And after bonding on a few ghost adventures, Kat Green was born.

Kat de Falla lived in a haunted house for too long. 
When things really heated up, she had several paranormal teams investigate, 
but things only got worse. 
When her mother suggested they contact a shaman, she agreed to come, saying she had been waiting for Kat's call. The home was cleansed and sold. When she paired up with Rachel Green, the idea of co-writing a book with a paranormal real estate agent seemed perfect.

Book One is First Contact and book two, Second Sight releases on June 28th, 2017. Fans of Ghost Adventures, The Dead Files, Ghosthunters, and the movie Ghost will love this series!
