The mound, a quiet town gathering spot...until now. Now something undeniably evil is hiding beneath it. A powerful darkness, terror with unfathomable needs and desires, spreading its roots in secret, transforming all that the good townfolk love and cherish: Their past, their hopes, their souls.
Courageous physicist Brian Kelley and his beautiful, very pregnant wife, must confront the horror. They will band together with their neighbors to battle a power transcending their worst imaginings. And only an impossible gamble will give them a chance to survive The Forbidden Zone - master storyteller Whitley Strieber's breakneck journey beyond the cutting edge of terrifying suspense.

And the moral of the story is....
... don't associate with Brian because he's a total idiot!
What I liked most about Forbidden Zone is that it was not a cookie-cutter horror story. The overall story was good, but a few things detracted from it. (1) We've already established that Brian is an idiot who puts his wife, unborn child, and friends in danger with his thoughtlessness; (2) (SPOILER!) The fireflys that "rape" women adds nothing to the story and cheapens it. I almost stopped listening at that point; (3) the narrator is has an unpleasant and often gravely voice and reads too slowly (listen at 1.25 or 1.5x) He made Brian's petite sweet wife sound like demon.
I would recommend this book to read (not listen to). The audible book fell short because of the narrator and I would definitely try another book by Whitley Strieber if read by someone else.

A deep and moving horror story
Great narration. Creepy atmosphere. Good plot and pace. The place setting was interesting. Highly recommend this. Good price as well.
