The budding relationship between two main characters and the established relationship of the older couple.
Really can't compare it to anything...quite unusual and quite imaginative.
Didn't overdo it...just enough change in voice to make it clear who was talking but not so much as to distract from the story.
Flawed hero, Jack, - very likable guy, conscious of his limitations, but works to improve...and understand the situation..and gets the job done.
Glad to see this is a series..already started the second one.."Journey."
This first book in a series which features a Private Investigator called Jack Carter and explains how he comes to be offered the opportunity of becoming a ‘Chaser’.
What is a chaser, I hear you ask? Well, a Chaser is someone who is chosen by the Lord to chase those who run from the light when they die, or Runners as they are known.
Soon inspired, Jack, decides to follow his heart and take on the job, but first he has to undergo training, and then in this medium length audiobook we follow him on his first few cases.
This story is enjoyable to listen to and the narrator James Killavey has a very powerful ‘Wrath of God’ type voice which is really great for this book. I am pleased that the author has chosen the same narrator for the other two audiobooks released so far in this series
Didn't read the print version.
When it went from normal detective story to WTF???
Great job...really brought it to life.
A bit of both.
Seemed like a normal good detective story until the "big reveal." If you can handle that...great story from then on. Glad to see this is just the first part of a series. Will be getting the next one ..soon.
Cool story idea but way to preachy. I was looking for a fun fantasy (like Dresden Files) and felt like I was trapped in a Christian church sermon. Also the narrator has an annoying accent and reads the story on a slow, irritating cadence. Didn't finish and it was the first book I've ever returned to audible.
-Narrators inflections made him sound like a robot
-novel had racist and religiously discriminatory undertones
-sentence structure and word choice sounded amateur and juvenile
-unbelievable and shallow characterization
