I have listened to, in my opinion, a lot of different books. I have a criteria for "good books" this one fits them all, action adventure emotions, the works. Above all though, if I can imagine them as a Dungeons and Dragons game where I'm listening to the dungeon master (the player that guides the story for those who don't know) portray the images associated stories, it's one good book. This is one of those books.
Well done Steven Harper
And well done P. J. Ochlan
The first book in this series was an interesting read, with a well crafted world and mythos. Sadly, the second of this series did not live up to the promise the first book showed. Very quickly the emotional baggage one character needed to deal with, turn very quickly into an emo pity party. I had to pause this book repeatedly as I would reach my tolerance, but still wanted to see if it would improve. If you liked vampires that sparkle in the sun you might like this.
I've always hated strong characters with such pity weakness. Could have been better but not horrible and easy to listen and it does not have a lot of filler in it.
