I've listened to all of the previous audiobooks in this series, enjoying them immensely! This book differs in that the new narrator says things a bit differently than the all previous books in the series. It takes some getting used to, but you eventually get accustomed to hearing "ley lines" pronounced as "lee lines," "Piscary" pronounced as "PISS-car-ee," and (my favorite/most-annoying) "Takata" pronounced as "TAH-ka-tah."
The narrator's unfamiliarity with how previous versions were pronounced seems more of a production issue than a narrator issue. The narrator is by no means "bad"... I find her quite easy to listen to, in fact. But the audiobook producers and Kim Harrison herself should have coordinated to make a consistent story.
By the way, the story is still top-notch and incredibly suspenseful!! A great Kim Harrison work!
