Publisher's Summary

Investigative reporter Nora Hesper spends her nights cloaked in shadows. As Indigo she's become an urban myth, a brutal vigilante who can forge darkness into weapons and travel across the city by slipping from one patch of shadow to another. Her primary focus both as Nora and as Indigo has become a murderous criminal cult called the Children of Phonos. Children are being murdered in New York, and Nora is determined to make it stop, even if that means Indigo must eliminate every member. But in the aftermath of a bloody battle, a dying cultist makes claims that cause Indigo to question her own origin and memories. 

Nora's parents were killed when she was 19 years old. She took the life insurance money and went off to explore the world, leading to her becoming a student of meditation and strange magic in a mountaintop monastery in Nepal...a history that many would realize sounds suspiciously like the origins of several comic book characters. As Nora starts to pick apart her memory, it begins to unravel. Her parents are dead, but the rest is a series of lies. Where did she get the power inside her? 

In a brilliant collaboration, New York Times and critically acclaimed coauthors Charlaine Harris, Christopher Golden, Kelley Armstrong, Jonathan Maberry, Kat Richardson, Seanan McGuire, Tim Lebbon, Cherie Priest, James Moore, and Mark Morris join forces to bring you a crime-solving audiobook like you've never heard before.

I can't even make it through... :/

I love these authors but this book is just horrible. Bad story, hard to follow, boring and the narrator is ridiculous. I may not even get through it even forcing myself! Ugh

I couldn't finish it

I bought this book based on the strength of the authors who wrote it. I was curious if so many authors could successfully collaborate on one book. The jury is still out on that. I just couldn't get into it. I also thought the narrator's voice was too dramatic. I returned it.

Interesting book, exhausting to listen to

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Christina Delaine?

authors yes, voice actor no

Any additional comments?

I really liked the book, despite some repetitive writing it was definitely an interesting story. The reading however is terribly "overacted", even the chapter names are apparently super dramatic despite just being, y'know, "chapter 7" or whatever, and that makes listening really exhauting and frustrating..

Disappointing audio

I love many of the authors that contributed to this story, but it was a disappointung collaboration. The dialog was highschoolish and often trite. I enjoy this narrator, but the performance seemed too melodramatic. oh well..

Nope, really nope.

I really wanted to love this story. I enjoy all of the writers and the narrator has done good work on other material. However for whatever reason this one fails, badly.

I liked the premise, and some of the plot twists were great plays on the tropes.

However, the source material needed better editing to smooth the connections between sections of the narrative, especially when revealing changes in the direction of the story. The joy of collaborative novels is the authors twisting the story into new fascinating shapes.

The narration of the story is ponderous, it felt like even the lightest moment was weighed down by the presentation. Pacing and voice never felt to me like it was actually engaged. I admit though I was able to distinguish the characters by their presented voices. That last is always important in a complex story.

Like I said I wanted to love this. Maybe the mark II version of the story and narration will be better.
