When a powerful daemon warlord is murdered in modern-day England, all signs point in the same direction: to Tehru, his nemesis throughout the dynastic war on Araunt. But Tehru knows that someone else has access to her power: Quills, a back-alley magic dealer and tattooist who once received a sample of Tehru's essence as payment for her services. Now the murdered daemon's followers are coming after Tehru for retribution, and Quills has to track down the real killer and clear her client's name. If Quills doesn't solve the murder in time, she'll be the one to take the fall.
Contains mature themes.
I'm the author of this book, so my review is biased, but I'm reviewing it for the audio production quality. I had no say in the audio production, but I couldn't be happier with it. Angela Dawe is amazing and her performance totally brings my words to life.
Really enjoyable read. Very well written and with a great main character (Quills). The story was very satisfying -- though I'm curious how all the Hellmaw stories will tie together eventually.
The performance was good, not great - but I'm being picky. I would've liked a little more differentiation between the characters but the emotion, tone, etc was very good. Most definitely worth the listen however.
