Simon Kim is very much in love with Leith Haas, but Leith is a Warder. His job - hunting demons - is dangerous and important, and Simon doesn’t want to distract the man he loves more than life with the small stuff. But he doesn’t quite get that when a Warder takes a Hearth, the Warder gives his heart without reservation. When Leith claimed Simon, Leith bared his soul, leaving himself vulnerable before the only man he’s certain he’ll ever love. When Simon is sucked further into Leith’s perilous world - and into an alternate dimension - Simon realizes that the only strength he can give his Warder is the strength of his love. Can Simon sacrifice the control he has come to treasure for the man who already owns his soul?

Another narrator certainly, and perhaps better production?? Granted this is a short story, but the same care should be taken as in a longer story.
I have all of Mary Calmes books and really enjoy the stories and like her writing. However as you might know, the narrator makes it or breaks it....in this case....oh dear. Not only broke it but all the wheels fell off.
I will not be buying any more books with this narrator. Very disappointing.
Sorry, he needs WAYYYYYYY more practice. Reading (way) too fast, mumbling, slurring, mispronunciation, and very poor enunciation. Also maybe be some editing production problems, because it would fade out so low you couldn't hear what was said, then come back on (after you turned it up) and blast it out, making ears practically bleed, and then you have to turn it back down.
This one and His Hearth both read in the above manner.
This addition to the Warder series is intense. It delves the characters into a demon dimension....
I really enjoyed this story and the performance....I was hooked from the start.
Love concurs all!
I absolutely loved it, so I will listen to it over and over again. I have never read/listened to a story like this before and it was the best adventure to kind of be a part of.
I love Simon Kim and just how he dealt with things, he didn't freak out, he just kept asking questions and trying to move forward.
I know a lot of people have been complaining of his performance for this series, but I actually really enjoyed his performance and had no problem differentiating the characters from one another.
It would be Raphael. I love the snarky bastard and think he would be a very interesting character to try to have a character with. I know Simon kept getting frustrated trying to have a conversation with him, but in the end he likes Raphael too.
Well bravo to Mary Calmes for the world building in this one. I loved hearing about Hell and everything that goes on in it. I could easily listen to/read another story in this version of Hell.
I love everything by Mary Calmes and the narrator is very good. The audio was really difficult to hear at times and I had to put the narration on the slowest speed. I will listen to it again though.
