Publisher's Summary

In the supernatural halls of power in the old, dusty forgotten substructures and mansions of Philadelphia there came a whisper one day. The whisper told of an artifact that could control the dead, be they vampire or spirit-kind. The two pillars of power, the vampiric House of Brittingham, and the self-proclaimed defenders of humanity, the Penumbra Brotherhood, acted with an immediacy almost unheard of for either faction. Both sects needed to find the item before the other because he who holds the shamanskin controls the army of the world's undead. The denizens of Hartshorn, PA, those that sleep above ground and those that do not, know nothing of the hell that is about to rain down on them like Heaven's ejected rebellion. It is a confrontation that will decide the fate of all humankind.

A strange story

So many twists and turns and subplots that the story was hard to figure out. The narrator did not help in that he paused so often that you missed some concepts while you wait on him to continue. He has not gotten control of his breathing. I enjoy a good paranormal story but this one left me wanting so much more. Sometimes I felt that I was wondering down the rabbit hole. There were so many battles and so many people it was hard to know who the good guys were. This was indeed a strange book. I don’t think I will read book 2 unless the narrator learned his craft more or the author made the story less confusing.

The story started a little sketchy and I was never a fan of the different perspectives in the same chapters with almost no break. About half way through, the story really started to take shape and pull me in. I gave the narrator 4 stars, I feel this was generous. He over enunciated, mispronounced, and at times had an awkward cadence. I can't blame it all on him as some of the dialogue really needed contractions, but his lack of flow created a somewhat disjointed story at times.

There was definitely a lot going on in this story, tons of action and lots of not so nice factions battling for supremacy.
All in all this was a decent listen, especially since it was free, and I will listen to the next installment
