When someone kidnaps the last surviving descendant of the Grandmaster of the Knights Templar, it's bad news. When the baby is the key to the tenuous alliance between a large werewolf pack and the knights, it's even worse news. They're at each other's throats before they've even begun to look for baby Constance.
But whoever kidnapped Constance didn't count on one thing: She's also the goddaughter of John Charming, modern-day descendant of a long line of famous dragon slayers, witch finders, and wrong righters. John may not have any experience being a parent, but someone is about to find out that he can be one mean mother.

"Fans of the works of Jim Butcher and Kevin Herne should find this an appealing addition to their bookshelves." (Library Journal)
I'm a big fan of Elliot James' writing. The snappy dialog, supernatural characters and high octane fighting of his stories is very entertaining. So far not one of the novels or short stories has disappointed. The characters are not stereotypical or stagnant like in some series. They grow, learn and you get to find out some back story too. Just enough to be intrigued.
In Shining Armor continues where the previous novel left off and to say this latest adventure is fast paced is an understatement. Turbo charged is more like it.
As to the narration, it's hard to pinpoint what makes one narrator more enjoyable to listen to than another, but IMHO, Roger Wayne is a perfect fit for John Charming's dry wit and sarcasm. His timing is superb, adding zing to a comment, that more than once had me laughing out loud.
ISA (as with the others in the series) is a keeper for me, to be relistened to with pleasure again and again. And I dearly hope that some time soon Elliot James' short stories (narrated by Roger Wayne) will become available too.
The narration is superb, with such a natural yet lively style. The book is great too, with just the right flow to keep me in the story, and looking forward to more. Excellent combination!
