The reader was good, he just had way too much copy, much of it really bad. I would be more generous with this title, if the book were sold to the juvenile market, the themes and action are tame enough for younger audiences -- but they wouldn't endure the really bad repetition of simplistic politics and a lame romance.
A good editor could save this book by cutting about a third of it and burning the cut text so it could never be recovered. It might make a good graphic novel, which would require most of the prose to be cut.
It's not a horrible book. It's not a complete waste of time. There are some good passages, there's just a lot here, most of it the juvenile politics and lame romance, that could have been cut.
This book cries out for an abridged version. Pass it by and get "The Last Werewolf" by Glen Duncan, you won't regret it.
The reader performance is first rate. The book is first rate.
This is a book for grownups. If you love a good horror novel, written by a talented author, this is your book. If you're uncomfortable with the horror genre, move along. This book is not about asexual vampires, in love with teenage girls. It doesn't have non-threatening homo erotic themes. This is about monsters, werewolves and vampires who eat people and the terror of that idea. It's about a character who makes peace with, and embraces the horror of his nature.
Yes, there is sex (really hot, steamy sex). Yes, there is gore (really hot, steamy gore). I only wish Audible had more titles by this author.
