Fantastic story as usual. Loved to hear more of Chris and Co but it is great to have Declans story and powers unfolding. Have to say that the Australian accent was pretty rubbish ;) but that was my only nitpick!
The plot was completely fascinating and very unpredictable
the makeshift blacksmith shop and the tow friends working with talents to make something unique
I cried, laughed and got angry and loved every minute
Top notch writing and a superb series.
look 4ward to the next book.
No spoilers, just read the darn book why don't ya. Better yet, start on the first book, you won't be disappointed.
"Wonderful book. Series is unstoppable."
This is a great urban fantasy series. This one in particular does something that few books can, it divides the storyline between two characters without disrupting the flow of the story. They are two stories, but they are masterfully interwoven. I will admit that the narrator deserves a great amount of credit for that as well. Perfectly narrated with many characters that are so well performed you wonder why they left the "said Tanya" "said Dekland". Really dig into it. Start with the first. You'll devour them.
"Still a fan"
The story is good. The series is fantastic. Few gripes. The relationship between D and his werewolf is seriously slow to develop. The fact that Chris and Tanya brought Declan on as an intern allegedly as a special part of their inner circle; however, he continued to get flack from all of Chris other staff got irritating. It seemed like Chris and Tanya where a bit less intelligent in this book. It challenged my ability to suspend disbelief when the intern is called to his bosses room; however, the intern can't get past an overzealous door man. Either Chris and Tanya are not capable of putting better staff at their door or they can't keep their staff informed of their expectations of the intern's pending arrival or they are not bright enough to realize second and third order effects of their administrative decisions. Of course, none of the explanations are consistent with their characters. That's the problem. The author is needlessly lowering the IQ of his two strongest characters whenever he writes a story focused on Declan. It's almost... almost a deal breaker.
"Each book gets better"
This book was worth the wait. Chris is an great character, but Deklin is an awesome character and together.... Wow. I'm actually upset the book is over.
"When is the next one coming out"
I love this series. I am left wanting to know what happens next.... And having to wait to find out... Which I hate. Chris and Dec have similar voices (narrator) so you have to remember who is talking sometimes. This story fully integrates the story lines. Just a good listen
I generally like the series...
The storyline of this book, however, feels rushed and not very well planned (frankly, it's an utter disappointment). Especially infuriating are the unbending walking stereotypes that the author keeps using to represent antagonists, who are always portrayed as vicious, obsessed and dumb bullies who strive on openly challenging and threatening the protagonists. That, and the sudden noticeable drop in all of the recurring characters' IQ...
Listening to a book of this genre should at the very minimum be a fun and, overall, relaxing experience. However, I find myself really struggling to keep listening through the whole thing (I guess, I'm too stubborn, or too naïve, to just give up, especially on the last book of a long series).
"God Hammer narrative"
This is part of a terrific series which have been really well read - until now. James Patrick Cronin is an excellent narrator, but, in College Arcane and this book his Irish accent has, at times, been more Cockney, while his Australian accent is truly embarrassing. Please, please visit Australia and listen to people's speech!!
"Did you like The Dresden Files? The try this"
This series of stories seem to be about a younger Harry Dresden type, but he is not a wizard , he is a witch just as disrespectful and mouthy as Harry. Harry had a skull with a resident spirit in the book God Hammer the spirit lives with in the witch.
Modern day story dealing once again with corrupt and greedy government types and mixing the spirit world with computers and software
Try it it's kind of a fun listen
the best book yet, the characters were awesome ,the plot was bigger and better then All the books and I love the rest of the series
"Just keeps getting better."
One of the best ones yet , liked the break up in story between Chris and Deccan . I wasn't sold on the relationship shift with warlock and wolf girl but as the story progressed it differently has grown on me.
"Very enjoyable and makes you want to listen"
The whole series is good. Yes, you need to listen in order; that's the fun part. I'm looking forward to more "episodes" of this series.
I don't have a favorite per se. I like the way James "reads" and gives flavor to the experience. Really enjoyed it.
