Yes to Cat Adams, I will try to avoid Arika.
It is hard to tell thoughts from speech, and multiple character scenes become a muddle of who is speaking.
I almost gave up on the audiobook and switched to the book multiple times. If I didn't have a long commute, I would have.
I just listened to Evanovich's Not. 19 - and it really reduced my enjoyment of this story. The voices were not unique to this title - and hearing Adam's voice the same as Ranger's reduced my enjoyment. Additionally it was difficult to tell the vampires apart and the accent chosen was too Dracula.
Supernatural DryHumor Modern
It has the dry humor and less nonsense of Dresden, or Briggs.
The book is broken into episodes - rather than chapters - so waiting and listening to the next part seems to make it a bit better. The important bits are highlighted again in the next episode, so it is closer to an anthology of novellas.
Halfway in and I really didn't care to learn more about the characters. And the narrator was off-putting in the reading of the details. While reading characters she was fine, but the descriptive scenes had a burr to the voice...
That the character seemed to be in a world where she had no power and was resigned to it, only trying to keep her friends from being killed too.
She sounded condescending at times.
I kept thinking it would get better... Perhaps if the uber-supernaturals weren't "Angels" and "Archangels" that sound more like demons...
Issues with my player led to a return.
Male voices are too nasal. Pacing change near the second half.
