They came after the Diseray. Some were terrors ripped from our collective imaginations, remnants of every mythology across the world. And some were like nothing anyone had ever dreamed up, even in their worst nightmares. Now, the luckiest Cits live in enclosed communities, behind walls that keep them safe from the hideous monsters fighting to break through.

Very well read, very easy to know which character is being voiced.
Use of history and legends meld well into a story of modern adventure. Adding human emotions and desires to the motivations of the legendary characters makes them seem more real/plausible.
The next book can not down load fast enough.

Have not finished chapter 2 and want to return it.
The artist reading is so one toned, there is barely any separation between characters, nor does he seem to notice full stops or commas, it was like listening to, one long runon sentence. We had to to start the opening paragraphs twice.
I will be returning this purchase.
If a new artist with more flare reads this the we might purchase the story again.
