I don't know that the audio is better than the print. I always liked inventing how characters sound in my head for the print version. The performer (Reader?) does a very good job "acting" each individual character.
Once the story gets past the premise, it doesn't stop. That takes about the first 1/3rd of the book and then it's non-stop. I never got the chance to say, "What's next?" because the book becomes a roller-coaster ride through a twisted set of events whose backdrop is a mysterious nemesis, the back story of a previous mysterious character, overall history of the series, and reader gratification of past novels. HA! NO SPOILERS!
Book one is pretty much setup. This book begins the real story of Owen.
There's no point that really moved me. This book is an action novel, put your emotions on hold while stuff gets blown up.
This book felt less awkward that the first book in the series, and the author just had plain fun. The book can stand on it's own. The story recap and character backgrounds are on fast-forward. I'm pretty sure the first novel only took about few minutes to explain in this book. It's just enough to remind the reader of the first novel or get past difficult questions for the new reader.
Like any mystery, the magic happens on the first read (listen). I wouldn't listen to 14 a second time.
It has to be Velma, not Daphne.
Jinkees! The best way to describe 14 is an homage to Scooby Doo with fate of the universe overtones. You have to pardon the author for spending so much time "in the mystery", but it's that and the quirky characters which make the story enjoyable.
