    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed KMM's non-Fever books. What compelled me to purchase this last book in the Fever series after the others had been so disappointing I can't explain other than I needed closure before writing this author off for good. The over the top narration at least provided me with a few chuckles but not even worth the 1 star rating I gave.

    Story

    London, 1759. After a high-society electric-eel party leads to a duel that ends badly, Lord John Grey feels the need to lie low for a while. Conveniently, before starting his new commission in His Majesty’s army, Lord John receives an urgent summons. An old friend from the military, Charlie Carruthers, is facing court-martial in Canada, and has called upon Lord John to serve as his character witness.

    Grey voyages to the New World,a land rife with savages (many of them on his own side) and cleft by war.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narrator


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Difficult to say as I didn't finish it


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator portrays the main character as an incredibly effeminate homosexual. Difficult to get past this characterization which is almost comical at times.


    What character would you cut from The Custom of the Army?

    the narrator
