First of all, this is not a book for children. It has some very gory scenes. I had to skip through scenes that felt like they were trying to be appall..Show More »ing. I get that some people like that, though.
It took me a while to get into it. It has a lot of simile, but when it started comparing bones breaking to cracking nutshells, I start thinking my car needed an oil change. Lucian kept doing things that threw me out of the story, like directly talking to the reader. I did like the writing and the story, and it had a great opening, but I wasn’t interested in the main character.
Lucian kept explaining his feelings and thoughts when it wasn’t necessary. For example, when he described the demon first taking over his body, it went on for many paragraphs, pretty much saying the same thing over and over. I couldn’t help but to think, everyone knows what it’s like to be possessed by a demon, so move on already. It did get better, but that was because I got used to it.
James Foster did a phenomenal job. The volume, the voices, the enthusiasm, and the tone were all spot on. He truly perfected the main character’s personality.
Overall, it was interesting enough to finish, but not one I would read over and over again. I would be willing to listen to more audiobooks by this author and narrator.
I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.
Great book!! I love this series. I love Lucien. Yes he is a whiner and butt head but he learns how to work with others. This book has it all. It i..Show More »s funny and full of action. This is just as good as the book 1 if not better. James Foster really brings the story to life. Cant till the next book. I received this book free for an honest review. However, it is worth a credit or the price of the book.. I do recommend. As i stated in my review of the last book. This book reminds me of the Dresden books. If you love them you'll love this series.
