I chose this novel based on the synopsis and the sample of the narrator. I was unfamiliar with the series and the author. And I've been delightfully surprised. I very much enjoyed the story arc. The characters are well developed and intriguing. I was curious enough to look up the author's web page and found more interesting background information and - Joy! - more novels in the series. I like to follow series characters and as long as Kevin Hearne continues to offer adventures and challenges of Atticus O'Sullivan's life, I will be a dedicated follower. If you enjoy wizardry, fantasy, good vs evil and epics about ancient gods, mixed in with a bit modern dry wit, you will most likely enjoy this story. I feel the narrator did a great job with Atticus's personality. I will be enjoying this story and those to follow many times. And perhaps more importantly to the author, I'll be yakking to all who will listen about the latest great book I've found.
I also wanted to chime in on the narrator. He is obviously talented, but as others have pointed out, just not quite the same as what we've come to recognize in the characters voices with James Marsters.
Also, I agree that Mr. Glover’s inflection and tone made Harry sound older.
This distressing difference won't keep me from purchasing another book if read by Mr. Glover. But if it is another installment of "The Dresden Files," then, yes, I'll skip the audio.
We're only human. We can't help that we become accustomed to certain voices in our audio library.
Take heed persons who make these decisions. Read the reviews and note that the fans have spoken!
Admittedly, I found this series because I was following the trail of the narrator, Lorelei King. But now I am hooked! I have listened to all three novels in the series, gobbling them up as quickly as I could. I'm eager to get my hands on the fourth installment and a little disappointed that there is an in-between novella only offered in E-book format.
The heroine is quirky, clumsy, and hard headed. She is also loyal, smart, intuitive, and resourceful. All of this plus, she’s the Grim Reaper.
I’ve enjoyed the delivery and inflection Ms King gives to the characters. I’ve fallen so hard for Charley Davidson that I’m buying the books, and twittering away for all to rush out and buy the stories. I especially like the way each chapter begins with a quote. I want T-shirts of all of them!
