Publisher's Summary

Book 3 of the Demon Accords.

Partnered in an uneasy alliance with federal law enforcement, Chris Gordon has been hunting down the outlaw gang Loki's Spawn, who attacked his vampire girlfriend. But when he finds unexpected hostages who trigger his baser instincts, Chris is thrown into a search for answers to dark questions: how to control his inner demon, what do the Spawn want with children, and who is hunting him?

I Can't Get Enough Of This Series!!!!!!

What made the experience of listening to Brutal Asset the most enjoyable?

As much as I like the world I feel its the characters that make this an enjoyable series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Brutal Asset?

The death a certain character came close to making me cry.

Have you listened to any of James Patrick Cronin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He has voice the last two books of the series as well as the remain books currently available.and gives the characters a better voice than anything I could think of in my head.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!!!!!

Any additional comments?

This series only gets better with each book, any fan of urban fantasy should at the very least give this series a try.

Great characters

Any additional comments?

Most good books have a great main character and a few interesting secondary characters. I find most of the secondary characters just as interesting as the main. Only complaint, I felt the story stalled a few times, especially Chris at school. Overall though, great narration and a great listen!

Very Enjoyable Listen

This series is a great getaway series. Lots of action and humor. Easy to follow storyline, likeable characters and plenty of characters to hate. I like that you don't have to read (listen) to 3 books to get some closure. I almost gave up after book 2 thinking it might be a wee bit too violent for me, but bought book 3 and I am glad I did. I find myself laughing out loud in public places and getting strange looks, but can't help myself. Overall a very enjoyable series.

AN ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE

Brutal Asset is another great component of an excellent and fun series. I have read/listened to the first three books without a break and am downloading Duel Nature as soon as I complete this review. I recommend Brutal Asset and the series to anyone who enjoys fast action and suttle humor. The story line and character development are excellent. Although I would prefer one of my favorite narrators, Cronin does a very good job and his narration style fits the book.

Consistent and getting better.

Any additional comments?

Again! This is not literary award material and I don't think it's intended to be. If you are looking for mind bending edge of your seat literature there are lots of other tittles from other authors! This is my third listen of the series and I'm getting attached to some of the characters. Some books are meant for reading others for listening. Conroe falls in this last category, fast moving urban phantasy, lots of action, a bit of romance, a dab of funny, a drop of technology, a smidgeon of gunplay, but above all: an easy listen...

I'm So Cool that Even My Weaknesses are Awesome!

First book was good, second slipped, third book has just gone too far. I've seen stories done right with a superhuman person who grows gradually in power. That's not our hero. He goes from special to Superman in 2 books. His weaknesses are his Super hot Vamp GF and having to eat a ton? Seriously?

Really love this story

I really love this story. I can't seem to stop once I start as the action and story along with the characters draw me in from start to finish. Nonstop action and lovable characters with a hilarious MC that seems to not know he is make this one great. The narrator does a great job with the different characters male and female alike. Can't wait to see what happens next. Highly recommended.

Enjoyable series

The Demon Accords are an interesting series. This is the 3rd book and I enjoyed this one quite a lot. It isn't especially groundbreaking, but it is very solid and I enjoy the main characters. Chris Gordon was the first two books hero with this about 1/2 they add his choosen Tatiana and it is a good choice. Some messing around with the choosen bond they share and improvement. The main story here is Chris is tracking down the Loki's spawn from the last book. Making them good enemies and lying down dead or more than dead. I do like a lot of e byplay on the side stories. Overall I very much enjoy the series to date.

a bit of a twist

Great story that develops inthe telling.interesting take on the paranormal communities. Narration was good but the female voices need a touch more work.
Too often they secondary female characters sound similar making it hard to differentiate them.

Love this series

Loved this series. Its even better how the narrator gives a voice to each character and you really feel all emotions from his voices, joy, sadness, humor, this has lead me to by the rest of this series and lots more books the narrator does.
