My Opinion:
I had no idea this was a sequel.
Doesn't matter, it was still a decent audiobook.
There are parts in the story that are slightly disturbing so prepare yourself. I have to tell you though, I'm the type of thriller reader that loves the disturbing stuff. It's what scares you and keeps you reading. I've also learned not to do this kind of reading, home alone at night. Just sayin'.....
I felt bad for the main character in this story. His life, so tragic. I couldn't imagine how someone like that would feel if it was real life, and yet, I believe stuff like that happens too.
There were some very dramatic moments and I liked that. 
With it being an audiocopy, I'll tell you the narrator had a very hypnotic voice. Like one you would hear on the radio. Deep and nice. Very easy to listen to. Though I found myself drifting off in the very end. Maybe too dramatic at that point... 
Definitely an author I will look out for. Though maybe next time I'll start with the beginning of the series.... 

3/5

RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
