I generally enjoyed this work, but the vocal presentation of Serge left something to be desired. Wyman pitched his voice to make Serge sound like the Chairman of the Lollipop Guild. It wasn't until halfway through that I realized Serge was average sized adult. The croaky, nasal voice made this less enjoyable that it could have been. Next time, make Serge sound a bit more resonant and a lot less Donald Duck.
The story had promise - a computer geek who battles the forces of evil using his technology expertise.
Unfortunately, the author's attempt to meld science and the supernatural fell flat. Much of the dialogue consisted of inscrutable acronyms and quasi-digital gobbledigook punctuated by phrases like "and this will prevent zombies from eating our brains" or "because if we don't upgrade the capacitor to 7 ohms, the demons from the planet Zoob will destroy earth." That schtick might work as the frosting on a well-conceived story, but it cannot stand on its own... and certainly not in such large quantities. [By the way, I have worked in the tech field for 20 years. I understood a good deal of the tech stuff -- but a lot of it was made up.]
