    "Great narration."

    Best thing about the book, for me anyway was the narration! S.W. Salzman did a great job with this, and because of the amount of different characters and the fact he made each one sound different, was really impressive. His narration was the only reason I plowed through this book because otherwise it would have been a DNF.

    This book was a hard one to rate because while there was a few things I liked, I didn't like the book overall. I found the writing to be very repetitive and I really didn't connect to any of the characters! The main thing I liked about it was how Vampires and Werewolves came about. It was a unique take on the lore, I just wished it was executed a little different. I don't like giving a negative review so all I'll say is, I mightn't have liked it, but give it a go anyway, you may love it :)

    *I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

    "Damn great listen"

    Mike Evans has nailed it out of the park.
    I usually listen to books at night before i sleep. i was up for four hours the first night. I couldn't turn it off because I needed to know what was coming next. I loved it.

    "Almost the best of his books!"

    I got this for free, and all I say is my thoughts! I am always honest!

    So Mike Evans are a really good author, and I really like his style of writing. This is a fun way to start your relationship with Mike. S. W.Salzman really reads this like a pro! His voice fits the book, and it's a 4 out of the 5 is a high score! Enjoy the book.

    "Different take on common story"

    I received a copy of this audiobook from the author in return for an honest review.

    The story is an interesting variant from the common storyline. I found it interesting to see the direction it took.

    The narrator has an awesome voice but his narration could have served to draw the listener in more completely if it had been less formal and more relaxed. Unfortunately this detracts from the overall presentation. Hopefully that can be improved for book two in the series.

    "Good versus Evil"

    I would have given the book a 5 but really do not like the time period (Kings and Queens). I enjoyed the concept involving the werewolves and vampires, good and evil. The narrator saved the day for me. Really liked the Orphans by Mike Evans. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com. Thank you!

    "Mixed bag"
    Would you try another book from Mike Evans and/or S.W. Salzman?

    Yes


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Was Deal with the Devil worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    For the most part, I liked the book. There were times were the narrator's sounded like he had something in his throat. It did get a bit repetitive with how the author wrote the conversation parts (Anton said ..., Joseph said ...). This audio book was provided to me for free through Audiobook Blast for my unbiased review.
