Firesong: the secret room

(2 customer reviews)


Life’s gone crazy in East Goodland, New York.

When Gus’s country church is hit by a rogue tornado, the bones of a missing parishioner are revealed in a field, shocking the parish and devastating the dead man’s family. Days later, heroin is found in their beloved minister’s bloodstream, throwing the congregation into chaos.

Strange panel vans roar through the countryside at weird hours of the night. The local salt mine collapses due to illegal mining practices. Gas fires burn in water wells. Watering holes turn to brine. Crops are dying. Tempers are short. Forest fires threaten. To top it off, the new mine lies directly over ancient Indian burial grounds, bringing anguish to local tribes and inciting riots at the mine site.

Join Gus as he’s lured into a bizarre network of underground tunnels to expose the most shocking discovery ever to rock the Genesee Valley.

  1. Uvi Poznansky

    FireSong is told from Music professor Gus LeGarde’s point of view, which allows his warmth and love for his wife, Camille, and for his family to shine as he is protecting them from devastating events. The story opens with church service Sunday morning, when a tornado is expected to hit. From there, suspense builds on with unseemly revelation of the skeleton of a long missing parishioner, then the drugs found in the bloodstream of the well-respected minister.

    The storm leads us into a whirlwind of events, painting nature’s fury in artistic detail as only nature-loving author Aaron Paul Lazar can muster. “Heavy-headed stalks waved in the breeze, creating great expanses of undulating patterns. A hint of green whispered beneath the golden-pink surf that rippled over the fields.”

    The audiobook narrator, Pete Milan, has a radiophonic style of delivery, but also offers a variety of voice renditions for each of the characters, making each one a unique one by refining them through their appropriate accents and ages.

    Five stars.

    This book stays true to the excitement and adventure of all the others that I’ve listened to in this series. I love Mr. Lazar’s writing and after I finish this series I plan to listen to and/or read his other books. Right now I am moving on to follow Gus in his next adventure.

    I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.
