The humor employed throughout the book with most characters keeps me coming back for more. The Irish cursing helps too!
This is my biggest critique of the book. The expansion of characters, expecially the new hound. I feel as if Hearne is stretching the story with too much of the other characters perspective. A few chapters here and there is ok, but going through all the different characters should have been a novella or two.
Hearne has a fantastic niche with Atticus and the style he employs and this books fits right in with the series.
If you have not read any of the MHI series, don't start here. The previous books were better and you will be lost if you start here. If you have read/listened to the others......well, you kind of have to get this one.
The ending was ok, not any real surprises...sorry!
Frankenstien vs. Wolfman - that scene kicked major ass!
Took me 3 evenings to get it all in.
Love the series, the narrator, and the author. This was however, my least favorite in the series. Franks is one of my least favorite characters in the books, so that played a big part in my Eh!? feelings toward this installment. It did tie in more of the plot leading toward the big Good vs. Evil showdown and I did "like" the book, just not as well.
Yes. Love the series and listen to them all atleast once a year.
Not gonna be a spoiler, but family issues were very touching
This is one of my favorites in recent years. Lots of action, deception, crazy fairies, and cool gods. Butcher, in my opinion, has given Harry some of his swagger back.
This is one of the better fantasy books I've listen to in the past year. This story is about so much more than just two fantasy figures and supernatural powers.
I really enjoyed this audiobook. The only minor complaint is some of the story telling was a little long and drawn out. The author, in conjuction with Guidall's performance, is a stellar work of art. Bringing together all the storys' elements from several different perspectives without losing the core values being presented.
For me the best aspect of the story is the twist on the lore. The least interesting aspect is the way Bill kinda BS's his way through much of the story.
None, as I would probably be on the menu.
Fun book. Not the best new vampire story, Bill is too mediocre in personality, but better than most the romance novels disquised as fantasy out now.
No. There were a few bright spots, such as Shawn Speakman, for whom the book was put together.
This was such a dissappointment for me personally. I'm a big fan of many of the authors, but there were sooooo many boooring stories. I hope Shawn was helped by sales for his condition, as his story was the best of the lot for me.
For a second installment there is very little character building or plot twist. After a few minutes in, the story becomes very predictable. IMHO the narration was mediocre at best.
I really enjoyed all the stories. Listening to some of my favorite characters, such as the Iron Druid series, in a different voice was strange but the stories made up for it. The Cold Girl and Painted Love were my personal favorites.
Really liked this series and loved Bronson Pinchot's narration. The only part I did not like was the ending. I'm not going to spoil anything, but would have prefered something in a little different direction. Having said that, this was a good book and a great listen!
