Another foolishly wonderful book by Hobb

As ever Hobb caught my attention and imagination with the start of a new trilogy. The story is rich, the characters are complex and diverse and all have been given a proper life and thoughts of their own. And you always feel as if you're reading on at your own peril, as no-one is ever safe, befitting the day and age the story takes place in. I also thoroughly enjoyed Taylor's performance, with the only possible note that his timbre sometimes gives women and felines a older and harsher feel than befits them. Yet, is have given the performance 4.5 stars of I could have!

the story reminded me much of Partials, by Dan Wells. Same theme with humans and not-so-humans trying to survive in a distopian future. But this was much heavier on the romance and that's not my thing. The writing is ok but some of the critical elements were glossed over a bit. the voice acting is good and I'll be looking for more of Hvam.

Cops and the occult nicely combined

Nice combination of detective combined with the occult. King reads well, although sometimes somewhat slow.

I loved the story and although it was well read, it was not a style that suited me. Sorry.
