Publisher's Summary

Upon his beloved mentor’s death, a young seminary student begins a journey to prove that everything in which he once believed is nothing but a fraud. His travels take him to the mountains of Bulgaria, where he’s forced to seek shelter in the cabin of a wild-eyed old hermit who claims to be a member of a secret order of monks, charged with the task of guarding the crypt of a captured demon. He has no interest in the hermit’s account, until an intruder attacks.


Audible Editor Reviews

With backdrops of "knife wound valleys", wild rivers, the Hagia Sofia, and monasteries dating from the middle ages, D. B. Clifton’s mysterious adventure The Last Watcher rides along the elegant, warm voice of British actor Simon Prebble, and takes the listener on a personal, religious, and magical journey in a style situated somewhere between J. R. R. Tolkien and Dan Brown. Our hero is a religiously disillusioned young man forced to take shelter in the Bulgarian mountains with a secret group of monks who are tasked with guarding the crypt of a captured demon. The first in a quadrilogy, The Last Watcher spins a fantastic tale of a man fighting what he is unsure he even believes in.


What the Critics Say

"Simon Prebble is the perfect choice to narrate this short drama about a monastery in which a mad monk, “the last watcher,” guards something truly terrifying. Prebble’s crisp British accent is somewhat muted as he gives life to the frightened monk. You can hear the hysterical fear in the old monk’s voice and the desperate confusion in that of the young visitor, who fears what’s behind the door more than the howling monsters outside."
