    "Drake's on the case again in a fast moving story"
    What did you love best about Darkness Unbound?

    It's a page turner - Once again Glenn Porzig movies you from scene to scene. In a nostalgic vein (no pun intended) this is a modern day Kolchak:Night Stalker series to a baby boomer like myself.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alexander Drake. The therapy/evaluation scene opens us up to Drake's imperfections and impatience, but also his desire to go on living.


    What does Brinke Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The whole series has been given a coat of gravitas by having actor Brinke Stevens guide us through. Her slightest nuances place her from male to female characters. Voice artistry is a given with Stevens unique vocal touch and she provides a smooth yet exciting ride through Drake's adventures.

    Story
    "Keeps getting better!"

    In the third installment of the Darkness Unbound series, the author's voice and method of storytelling have improved even more, and the narrator's tones and characterizations have improved as well. While I was still taken out of the story by certain pronunciations (like "approociate" for appreciate), it's clear that Stevens reads ahead before recording, which is something all good narrators should do, lest they speak a character's line in the wrong voice. She handled this switching back and forth well, and again tackled accents with ease. I still appreciate her way of yelling without yelling, as well. Thanks for not deafening me. 😉

    The characters in this third installment were, dare I say, even more fleshed out and memorable than in the other books, and I especially loved the fact that one of the characters was an author. It's fun when authors write about authors, because, even when they aren't the main character, I can see little pieces of the author in them - their dreams, their struggles, their accomplishments - and being an author myself, I can't help but relate to them. I also loved the return of a certain ghost hunting group (and the mention of PRS!) - and all the wonderful jabs that brings. These books are dark, but they certainly are not devoid of humor!

    By the time I reached the end (with a smile on my face, thanks to a certain guest appearance or two), I was sad that it was over. But my smile returned when the preview for book 4 started. I was worried Porzig would stop at 3 books, but apparently the saga will continue. I can't wait to see what happens next. This series keeps getting better!

    "The series continues strong"

    Glenn Porzig’s story telling continues to evolve in his 3rd novel in the Darkness Unbound series, Shadow of Death. From a shootout to a ghost hunt gone wrong, the action never stops up to the book’s startling conclusion. Brinke Stevens continues to impress in bringing the characters to life.

    Story
    "It really kept my interest. A must read story."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was the first of his three books I've listened to and I enjoyed it. I love stories that keeps you guessing and this one delivered. I also loved Brinke Stevens as she read you through this very interesting book. I'm planning on getting the other two books soon when I have some extra time. I'm looking forward to listening to Brinke Stevens tell the next tale. I would definitely tell my friends about this book and I have.


    What does Brinke Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brinke has the type of voice that engages you deep into the story. She has feeling when telling the story and keeps you interested and wanting to hear more.


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to get the other two books and sit back and enjoy the story Brinke Stevens will read to me.
