Synopsis
The village of Krume is plagued by a haunted wood and a hungry witch. It’s been that way for as long as Hans and Greta can remember, though they have never seen the witch themselves; no one has.

When men start to disappear once again in the cover of night - their bloody hearts turning up on doorsteps - the village falls into frenzied madness.

Hans and Greta, two outcast orphans, find themselves facing accusations of witchcraft and are met with an ultimatum: burn at the stake, or leave the village forever.

With nowhere else to go, they abandon their only home.

As they venture into the strange forest, their path is fraught with horrific creatures, wild and vivid hallucinations, and a mysterious man tied to the witch's past.

The Shrike is watching, just beyond the deep darkness of the woods.

Narrator Bio

Ryan Haugen tried to write for a long time. He has nothing to show for it - in fact this is the first time he’s sat down to write since college.

Actually, he isn’t even sitting right now. He’s standing, and coming to grips with how writing has always caused him to deceive himself. So, that honest work tied to fiction would ever materialize shocks even him.

As a narrator, Ryan has no formal qualifications or training.

As a producer, he has an above-average grasp of Windows 10 and Audacity.

As a purveyor of twist endings, he would have you know he quit his day job to pursue narration full time in his home studio after 7 months of part-time narration, and 15 books narrated.

Ever engaged, passionate, and consumptive of all forms of media, Ryan floats in bewildered contentment at the notion anyone would want to listen to him speak for dozens of hours, but hopes you enjoy his youthful performances in the tales he tells, and that by now, you truly believe he is a better storyteller than he is writer."

Casting our characters was actually something A.M Wright and I did together, right from the very beginning. I think we’re both very visual people, and it’s easier to write about characters that we can see, and bring to life! So as we were creating our story, and developing our characters - we set out to give them faces with famous actors and actresses. You’ll notice that the Shrike doesn’t have an actress (as the Shrike doesn’t necessarily ever have a face the reader sees.) 

As you listen to the audiobook, or read the book on your own - take a moment and imagine these faces as the characters you’re reading!
