The first story in the acclaimed Heavenfield series.
Hailed as a "modern-day classic of science fiction", The Heavenfield is a dark science-fiction thriller set within a British experimental research facility, involving clandestine government agencies, supernatural forces, and alternate realities.
When Dr. Grace Palmer and her team of research scientists discover a way into a mysterious world they name the "Heavenfield", they trigger a devastating chain of events. Bizarre, unexplained murders, and attacks on the project leave scientists trapped in the field with no way to return. As their air supplies run low and their equipment begins to fail, their nightmares begin to play out before them....
Part spy novel, part sci-fi thriller with ominous and mysterious undercurrents, The Heavenfield has been described as "thought-provoking, a compelling story with strong elements of allegory, beautiful, and mesmerizing".
"Some of the finest audio-fiction I've ever listened to.” (Evo Terra, Founder of Podiobooks)
Contains: Violence, horror, mild drug reference, strong language.

Author narrated offering a winner!
OK, so the title of this review says a lot. Generally, authors should not performers ( and, perhaps, vice versa ! ). This is most definitely not the case here. A fantastic performance by IG Hulme ( who clearly has career potential ahead of him as a performer if he so chooses ).
That said, what about the content? Creative, sometimes violent, very "out of the norm" and most definitely cross-genre. Horror? Tick? Supernatural? Tick. Scifi? TIck? Where do I stop? This is a sprawling, sometimes too much so, book which could likely benefit from some sharp editing and focussing.
That all said, this is an amazing book ( esp for fans of the 3 genres I noted ) and I highly recommend it.

Simply put, I love it
Whether it’s in the form of a podcast or an audiobook I love The Heavenfield by I G Hulme.
I first heard this on iTunes Podcast oh so long ago. I downloaded it, fell in love with the story and never stopped listening to it. It’s one of my favorites so much so that I every so often I look it up on Audible and tonight, to my delight here it was. And imagine my surprise when I saw there’s a another book, a prelude to the entire ordeal. But since this is my introduction to
the Heavenfield universe this is where I shall begin again. Listening to and reliving the journey. Oh and the narration is sublime, just another reason to listen to Hulme again and again.
