Beyond the din and dancing lights of the Las Vegas strip, a young woman has mysteriously gone missing. All the facts point to something sinister - even paranormal. Quentin Draith, supernatural crime investigator, is hired to assist. However, the deeper Draith digs, the more otherworldly his assignment gets. Assassins, human and otherwise, put a target on Draith’s head and a ravenous alien beast starts rampaging through the city. The clues point Draith to Sin City’s infamous “Bone Triangle,” a neighborhood marked for its dark happenings and disappearances.

The story was very weak, even though I enjoyed the first book. The performance of the reader only made it worse. I really like BV Larson's books, but feel like he didn't really have this one in him

In a world full of super powers, Felix has a pretty crappy one. He has the ability to modify any item he owns. To upgrade anything. Sounds great on paper. Almost like a video game. Except that the amount of power it takes to actually change, modify, or upgrade anything worthwhile is beyond his abilities. With that in mind, Felix settled into a normal life. A normal job. His entire world changes when the city he lives in is taken over by a super villain. Becoming a country of one city. A city state.

I wasn't sure what to expect. The main story line was an interesting concept, but the characters make this book really fun. I've been on a 'superhero' book kick lately, and stumbled across this one. The performance really made the characters fun to imagine. This book will not be for everyone, but I, for one, really enjoyed it!

I hope, for your sake, that you have not chosen to listen to this recording because you are in the mood for a pleasant experience. If this is the case, I advise you to put down this audio instantaneously, because of all the audios describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, The Miserable Mill might be the unhappiest yet.

Throughout the book, the volume went from a very quite whisper to a loud screaming. We had to adjust the car radio volume constantly to keep from blowing is out of the car. It took away from the story and makes me wonder if we want to continue with the series.
