Simon Lewis is having some trouble adjusting to his new life as a vampire, especially now that he hardly sees his best friend Clary, who is caught up in training to be a Shadowhunter - and spending time with her new boyfriend, Jace. Simon decides he needs a break and heads out of the city - only to discover that sinister events are following him. Realising that the war they thought they’d won might not yet be over, Simon has to call on his Shadowhunter friends to save the day - if they can put their own splintering relationships on hold long enough to rise to the challenge….

I love the books and the previous narrators haven't been so bad. But this is awful and really spoiled it for me. The voice of Simon is British and not a Brooklyn accent which doesn't make sense, I can just about put up with that but Clarys voice is the worst! Compared to the other narrated versions this Molly girl sounds so whiney and feeble. Does not match the character at all. I can't listen to anymore of this. Just purchased book No 5 to listen to so let's hope it's better.

Please can we have one set of narrators per series and not change them each book. It's very annoying and doesn't make the books flow.
