I don't often listen to audiobooks because the narrators can sometimes ruin the feel of a book. That was not the case with this book.

First things first, the story... Blu is such a complex character. I was completely entranced in his backstory and am excited about the possibility of learning more about him. Maxine is an equally complex character with strong motivations and a relentless drive to go after what she wants. The two of them together … FIRE

Please keep in mind that this is a short. It was just enough to get me hooked and ready for a full length novel. I really want to be able to spend more time with the characters and see where the story takes us.

The narrators did a good job with the pace and tone and didn't distract me from what was going on with the book.

The only criticism I have is that foreign accents aren't for everyone. When the narrator tried to do the Spooky (Irish) character's voice she sounded more like a mix of Jamaican and something else. Overall though it was a great performance and I look forward to listening to the rest of the series.
