"Great but with some annoying mispronunciation"
I thought the narrator a great job with most of the voices and all the various accents. He really differentiated the characters. Unfortunately, the weakest voice was that of Owen, the main character. Although he was an uptight, repressed character he did not have to sound like a robot. But the thing that really drove me crazy was the way he pronounced plural possessives. Servants' was pronounced servantses, parents' became parentses, friends' was friendses. It pulled me out of the story every time.
"Another fantastic Hexworld book"
I love Jordan L. Hawk's books and Tristan James does a fantastic job narrating them.
I did find in this one, his voices for Owen & Nathan when they were talking to one another kind of flowed together wherein a couple times to figure out who was talking I had to think context - but considering they are brothers, that isn't as much of a problem. But each of the other voices was vibrant and recognizable. From the bear Bertie to our fox Mal, to his witch Owen. I loved the voice for Peter's nurse. James does a fantastic job with Irish women's voices. They sound like women... instead of a man reading a woman's voice.
If there is one thing missing from Hexmaker, for me, it is the pure depth that was in the first book, Hexbreaker. It was the first novel in the series and it left me feeling as though I was living in that world. Hexmaker was fantastic, but didn't leave me as much in depth.
That said, it is still a fantastic read and a must have book. Well, all of Hawk's books are.
However, if you haven't read the first book, you'll still be caught up in the alternative 1890s New York where Hexes are a part of life and familiars (shape shifters) and their witches must figure out who the bad guys are that are after them before they end up dead.
Say hello to the MWP - Metropolitan Witch Police.
I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could.
"There is no ending beg"
Jordan L. Hawk put so much into this wonderfulness that there was no way to tie up all the loose ends. Still Hexmaker and it's companion book in this two book series are are among the best books ever written in the genre. Magnificent.
"Just as good as the first"
I sincerely hope this series goes on forever.
Malachi and Owen were a great pairing. I'm ready to read Nick's story. Can that be next please?
