Publisher's Summary

Earphones Award Winner (AudioFile Magazine)

In the third in the "richly detailed and diverse" (io9) urban fantasy series, the time has come for the dead to rise up against the shady powers-that-be...The time has come for the dead to rise up...Trouble is brewing between the Council of the Dead and the ghostly, half-dead, spiritual, and supernatural community they claim to represent. One too many shady deals have gone down in New York City's streets, and those caught in the crossfire have had enough. It's time for the Council to be brought down - this time for good. Carlos Delacruz is used to being caught in the middle of things: both as an in-betweener, trapped somewhere between life and death, and as a double agent for the Council. But as his friends begin preparing for an unnatural war against the ghouls in charge, he realizes that more is on the line than ever before - not only for the people he cares about, but for every single soul in Brooklyn, alive or otherwise....

Critic Reviews

"It's clear that Older not only lives in the same vibrant neighborhood his characters inhabit but also that recent social and political events have informed his novel. "Tonight we rise as one and change the world!" A powerful conclusion to an excellent urban fantasy series." (AudioFile)

Entertaining!

This is one of my top ten audiobooks here on audible.

because this book was a part of a series, I loved that it was just as entertaining as the previous books, it wrapped everything up very nicely and it can stand on its own if you have not read the previous books

What does Daniel José Older bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings the essence of New York and the flavor of its characters.

Older is fantastic

Any additional comments?

Really great narration and good story make for another great listen from Older. If I had a complaint, it might have been better to let a female do the female voices. There were frequent and multiple character changes and a few times I had to backtrack so I knew which character was speaking. Older is so smooth though, I thoroughly enjoy listening to him wax poetic, especially from Carlos' perspective.
