Audible Editor Reviews

Graham Masterton has been thrilling and terrifying his readers since 1976, when his best-selling novel The Manitou was published. Since then he has published almost 40 books of horror, which his fans devour voraciously. In the supernatural thriller Descendant, a vampire legend of the Romanian strigoi turns out to be a reality. This suspenseful novel about undying predators is performed by Garrick Hagon, whose voice - though perhaps not his Transylvanian accent - many listeners might recognize from Star Wars: A New Hope and Batman. Hagon reads frequently for the BBC and even operates his own audiobook production company, so he knows his way around a strong dramatic recording.

    "Hard going..."
    If you’ve listened to books by Graham Masterton before, how does this one compare?

    First book I have listened too by this author - not entirely sure I would do another.


    What didn’t you like about Garrick Hagon’s performance?

    Arrggh. He was way to sing-songy for my liking. He had a strange accent and I didnt much care for his reading.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Possible - it wasn't a bad tale - in fact, I auite enjoyed it, but there are better books out there!
    If it was a movie, it would likely be in the B category!

    "Excellent!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great story from GM. Strigoi vampires in Europe and London! The reader does a good job with the various accents. Definitely worth listening to.

    What would have made Descendant better?

    The Narrator is the most annoying American I have ever heard he has learnt his characterisations by watching Mary Poppins or Dick Van Dyke. Masterson clearly has a dislike of all things British and takes every opportunity to poke. To think I used to enjoy this author in the 80's.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Graham Masterton again?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He couldn't detract from this heap of rubbish


    What character would you cut from Descendant?

    All of them.....except the dog.
    Bullet, (the dog) was one voice the Narrator actually carried off


    Any additional comments?

    I would strongly avoid this and use your credits elsewhere
