Either you like Laurell K Hamilton or you don't - I happen to like her books, though I agree with many that she's lost her way with this particular series. However, this is an audiobook review, and what I find most helpful for audiobook reviews is commentary on the narration. For reasons that escape me, Laurell K Hamilton has abysmal luck with her narrators. I hadn't thought that narration could get much worse than Laurell Merlington reading Hamilton's Merry Gentry series (you haven't known pain until you've heard a professional reader pronounce the name Siobhan "Sigh-Oh-Ban"), but I was wrong. The narrator of Blood Noir is so bad, this book is unlistenable. And I mean, quite literally, that I could not listen to the book. Cynthia Holloway's narration is plodding and wooden - with one character indistinguishable from the next. Read the book or perhaps check and see if it had a different reader in the UK. Avoid this version at all costs!
