Review: Unleashed by Janae Mitchell


But it's just a game...

When Jailyn's best friend, Prestley, brought in a new game, Jailyn didn't want to play. However, after a little persuading, she gave in. Unbeknownst to the girls, they weren't playing a game. Instead, the game was playing them.

What happens when an evil is unleashed... and that evil has its sights set on the one who unleashed it?


Janae Mitchell has a way with words. I found this story interesting and eerie. I was drawn right in and found myself dreading what would happen next. I can feel many emotions while reading a book, but very few writers has been able creep me out like Janae did with this one. Ouija boards has always creeped me out, but even if they hadn’t before, I believe Janae would have just successfully succeeded. Unleashed is a fantastic and horrific story, equipped with possession and death, with a little bit of a love story mixed in. It has everything you could want in this kind of book and more.
Jailyn and Prestley are friends that one day make the horrible decision to try out an Ouija board. After that everything goes to hell with; mysterious sound, people missing, and Jailyn being stalked. Jailyn finally has to enlist help, but who should she trust and who will ultimately betray her? Will it ever be over? Or is it just the beginning?

Shannon Tyo has a great voice to listen to and she brings life to Unleased by reading with such great passion and emotion. I was so happy to find that she was NOT a monotone reader. A good book can be ruined with a bad narration and I believe Shannon’s narration enhanced the overall feel of Unleashed. She also read at a good speed, not too slow or too fast.

There is only one problem that I found. There is little to no voice differentiation for each character. Every character sounded the same, but aside from that her performance was spectacular. So if the voice not changing for each character is not a problem for you, you should love this narration. I would defiantly listen to more books narrated by her.

Janae is a fabulous writer and with Shannon’s narration this book is brought to life in living color. Congratulations on a job well done ladies.
