Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator, Stefan Rudnicki. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Stefan Rudnicki….add[s] a compelling edge to the suspense.” (AudioFile)

From best-selling storyteller Orson Scott Card comes a gripping story of terror within a small town.
Step Fletcher, his pregnant wife DeAnne, and their three children move to Steuben, North Carolina, with high hopes. But Step’s new job with a software company turns out to be a snake pit, and eight-year-old Stevie’s school is worse. As Stevie retreats into himself, focusing more and more on a mysterious computer game and a growing troop of imaginary friends, the Fletchers’ concern turns to terror. Young boys, whose names match a list of Stevie’s nonexistent friends, have mysteriously vanished from Steuben. And as evil strikes out from the most trusted corners, it’s suddenly clear that Stevie is next on the list.
