    Meet Shaman Bond, aka Eddie Drood, scion of the ancient Drood family. He is devoted to protecting humanity from the forces of darkness. Protected by the secret weapon received at birth by all members of the Drood family - a magical gold torc (i.e., a neck ring) that turns into a suit of nearly impervious golden armor - Eddie faces arcane dangers with healthy doses of wry self-confidence and sarcasm. Then the family matriarch sends him on a mission that turns out to be a deadly setup.

    Any additional comments?

    It took a while for me to get used to the narrator's voice. I started and stopped listening to this book several times. However, at some point it clicked and I really enjoyed listening to this book. I previously read the hardback version.

    Story
    (541)

    In Unfamiliar Fishes, Sarah Vowell argues that 1898 might be a year just as crucial to our nation's identity, a year when, in an orgy of imperialism, the United States annexed Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Guam, and invaded Cuba and then the Philippines, becoming a meddling, self-serving, militaristic international superpower practically overnight. Of all the countries the United States invaded or colonized in 1898, Vowell considers the story of the Americanization of Hawaii to be the most intriguing.

    Kat says: "Sarah Vowell does it again!"
    "Terrible voice. Only one narrator."

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger. Disappointment. I thought there would be multiple narrators, but there appears to be only one. I HATE her voice. The content was interesting, but I had to stop listening. I wish I had listened to a preview.
