Another well written, thrilling novel from the tremendously talented Raymond Khoury. While I agree that the narrator wouldn't be my first choice, the plot, characters, action and rich backstory made me forget everything else. In fact, I almost got a ticket from CHP because I was listening to the Capadocian fight scene (won't say more to avoid spoilers) and totally forgot how fast I was driving. Fortunately for me, the officer let me go with a warning. My only regret is that it feels as if the Templar story line is finished, but I'd like to keep following the adventures of Reilly and Tess.
Stick with this book for a richly nuanced world with compelling characters framed against a fantastic, alternate world. When the characters started frustrating me because of who they were, I realized how deeply under my skin the author had gotten. Bravo! Also, have to say that Tamara Marston is an outstanding narrator. Although I've only listened to a couple of dozen audiobooks so far, she really stands out for her outstanding ability to differentiate between voices without feeling forced or artificial. Can't wait to hear her other work and hope they bring her back for the sequel.
