this is where the writer lost his characters.

so up untill this point the books have been great. Unfortunately the writer took the story on a convoluted joy ride. The main character is in limbo so he is writing from the perspective of other charators. Ignoring his characters barely fleshed out motivations, he makes his "dolls" (because they are not fleshed out characters) follow his crazy maze of terrible logic...

Meh

I enjoyed the first set of books narrated by William.
Unfortunate that he was unable to continue the rest of the series. The new narrator did a very good job. For myself, I struggle to be captivated in the story with many female narrators. I will be listening to the book and realize scenes and conversations had changed while my mind had drifted onto thoughts in my head rather than what was happening in the story. It may just be me. William did a great job with voices and when that changed it was hard for me to feel like it was still the same story. After finishing books of the dead parts one through six, I’m not sure if I want to struggle through just to find out how the next book goes.

New voice, different characters

I love the finality of these books. Brings closure to many untied threads that developed in the Vesik world. The one distraction is that the reader has changed and with it, the portrayal of the characters. I couldn't help but miss the original reader, bringing the voice of characters like Leviticus, Euphemia, and Mike the Demon. The characters in this set sound different and with different intonations bringing about new character representing old characters.
EDIT: just opened Dreams of the Forgotten Dead, RIP Mr. Dufris.
