I'm Cisco Suarez, and a week ago I was dead.
Cursed into serving a clandestine shadow group, I have a lot of blood on my hands. Good thing I also have a juvenile problem with authority. I'm not taking orders anymore, and the first thing on my bucket list is bringing them down.
If I'm good at anything, it's looking in dark places. But I've got shadows of my own. Horrific deeds coming back to haunt me, and not the metaphorical kind of haunting, either. I'm talking ghosts, mages, and that thing with the glowing red eyes.
Just goes to show you, it really is true what they say: What goes around comes around. I only hope to give more than I get.
Is resurrection overrated or what?

Jumps right in from where the last book ended. and I enjoyed the whole ride. A nice balance of Dresden and Sandman Slim in the best way possible. I love those series and love this one as well. I cant wait tobsee what happens next.
This is both the first Domino Finn and first Neil Hellegers book I’ve listened to. Even though it’s the second book of the series I didn’t have any problem getting into it and it filled in the back story enough that I never felt lost. This book is great as a standalone novel, but it leaves you wanting more at the end. The narrator did a great job and I really liked the voice he used for the main character. I felt that the deep voice he gave Cisco really brought the character to life. He nailed the smart aleck comments perfectly. Speaking of the main character, he definitely had a sarcastic in-your-face attitude which I really enjoyed. I’m pretty big on fantasy books, but the concept of magic in this book was something that I haven’t really seen before. The main character is a Voodoo magician who can use the shadows to his advantage in innumerable ways. There are also undead creatures like vampires, zombies, and ghosts, but there were also other magic creatures like elementals and other forms of magic, such as paper magicians. The whole book was an action packed adventure mixed with snarky comments from chapter one until the end and I definitely plan on listening to the rest of the books in the series.

If you enjoyed the first in the series then this is a worthwhile sequel. Interesting new layer to the story, good world building, sticks the ending.
Yes Yes Yes!!!
The plot is never ending and the twist are amazing. The action never stops and the dialogue is action packed as well. No superfluous dialogue and long speeches. Everything is PERFECT! Author and Narrator are a match made in heaven.
EVERYTHING! Inflection, emotion, mood, drama, tone, raspy voice, spanish, irish, australian, ITS ALL THERE!! He's my new favorite narrator. . . sorry Fred Berman. . .
Milena. . . Her pain at the realization that Cisco killed his family. This drama came immediately after they battled a poltergeist, leaving us with the illusion of their alliance being mutual and permanent. Her revelation takes her out of the next two books.
Keep it coming! Dont know how you can get better than best, but you did it here!
Since the first book laid the groundwork, this book took off with action very early. It also went further into what had happened to him during a 10 year period in which he had no memory. I also enjoyed the more in depth explanation of his ancient Taino powers that emanated from his ancestors in Cuba. The Cuban artifact that held similar power as he did came into play as well as a cross section of other worldly characters to include a vampire and a mange.
I would compare this book to the Dresden Files (which I consider to be the gold standard in this genre); however, it takes off in a very different direction and uses its own originality in the storyline as well as the character development.
He was just enjoyable to listen to.
The end of the book was a crescendo.
