I'm quite the fan of Greg Bare, having been introduced to him through his Star Wars novel Rogue Planet. I wasn't initially impressed with Timothy Dadabo's narration, but he grew on me over time and did fit the book well.
Without giving anything away, the ending is a real shocker and a cliffhanger as well.

At first, I wasn't sure how to feel about the book. This is one of those books that you can't judge until you've read the entire story. Unlike his first book in this series, Cryptum, the story doesn't make much sense until you reach the end and it all clicks into place.
In chapter 34, there are a lot of audio artifacts. I recognize them specifically as jitter from an improperly ripped cd. I've reported this to Audible and, according to them, they are not the ones who convert the discs but get the content directly from audiobook publishers. That being the case, I have to wonder why the publishers are giving Audible rips of their own discs rather than providing digital masters. I will be pursuing this with McMillan Audio, as I'm intrigued as to why Audible was provided with a bad rip when a rip is not even necessary. Audible themselves were understanding about the issue, and it's not their fault.
