Publisher's Summary

"The Oversight is most dangerous when most reduced. There are many dead and gone who did not remember that."

The Oversight of London has been sworn for millennia to prevent the natural and the supernatural worlds from preying on each other. Now, at its lowest ebb, with its headquarters destroyed and its last members scattered far and wide, this secret society will battle for survival and face the harshest foe it has ever met: itself.

Charlie Fletcher Quality.

Good quality ending; spot on narration as only the author could and the knowledge that I will look forward to reading the trilogy as a whole sometime in the future.

Gripping.

Absolutely loved it. The story from beginning to end kept me on the edge of my seat.
The narration was amazing and brought every character to life.

I hope we get to follow where the Oversight go to next

A excellent trilogy comes to an end.

This a the last book in the trilogy and it does not disappoint. It has the same quality as the first two books and does not feel like a final story.

I would like to here more of the overwatch but saying too much would would mean providing spoilers.

I recommend the books and to be honest when I started the series I had concerns when I saw the writer was doing narration I had my doubts as I have had books where the writer is not a narrator, but I found the narration both engaging and the character voices on the nose.

Ruined by author as narrator

Authors should never narrate their own work. Charlie Fletcher doesn't make too bad a go at it (pacing is off & he's rather too plummy, struggling to differentiate characters) but he could be worse. What really spoiled it for me is the amateurish mic technique and mastering by the studio. I can hear every tiny little bubble of saliva in his mouth pop and squish constantly, and it's pretty gross. The story I'm enjoying; not quite as much as the previous instalment, but if you enjoy the series it's definitely worth a go... if you can, though, I'd suggest the book rather than the audiobook.

Just wanted the ending to be a little brighter

I have loved this series. Charlie Fletcher created a wonderful cast of characters and I can imagine that reading this is somewhat better than listening, I wonder if listening takes away something very special.
My criticism of this final chapter (I'm sorry to say) was Charlie's narration.
The oversight was read by Simon Prebble and I became attached the voices he created. I often feel that a book is more expertly narrated by an author and perhaps Charlie should have done this from book one as I noticed the difference in the Paradox and the Remnant. Mostly I couldn't abide his American accent which was dreadful! And kept morphing into a weird Irish lilt and at one point I wasn't sure if Cat had morphed into an American!
I'll be honest it was bad enough to spoil it for me and I kind of sipped out of the room when the Americans were talking so probably missed some excellent parts but it was quite awful.
That said - I love this trilogy and recommend it. If you like me, need authentic accents then best to buy and read them traditionally, if you are a keen listener and don't mind the waver from the expected then go right ahead! I would love to hear more from the oversight in the future. But if not, I feel settled that it ended comfortably if not a little sadly and would read Charlie's work again. But please- no American accents!

This trilogy is now added to my favourites list

There are books it would hurt never to enjoy again. This is a prime example. Up there with dragonbone chair, shannara.,and the rivers of London. Series. Thank you Charlie.

Amazing

Total involvement in the story, the characters, the action. Happiness, sadness, hope and action, all thrown into a pot and stirred into a story of great delight! Listen to the trilogy, one of the best I've read or listened to. Such a shame it's come to an end.

Should have stayed witht he original narrator.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I loved the first book, the narrator was very good. I didn't enjoy the second book so much but only because the narrator was changed and the story was read by the author and he wasn't as good. Now on the third book, I'm sending it back. I can hear all the workings of his mouth, it sounds like his tongue is dry or something. I'll buy the paper version as I really enjoyed book 1 and I'd like to know the end.

What did you like best about this story?

I didn't finish it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He's a writer and not an actor. It didn't work for me.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Remnant?

Don't know, I gave up.

Any additional comments?

Writers should resist thinking of themselves as actors.
