The story was really good but the new narrator is bad, kept mixing character voices/accents and Nate sounds like a little girl quite a bit whereas the old narrator was a bit more gruff which is what I liked. However his accents for other character were on point and he does Mordrid really well. Apart from that a very enjoyable book.

Over a hundred years have passed since a group of violent killers went on the rampage, murdering innocent victims for fun. But even back then, sorcerer Nate Garrett, aka Hellequin, knew there was more to it than simple savage pleasure - souls were being stolen. Nate's discovery of the souls' use, and of those supporting the group's plan, made him question everything he believed.

His name is Nathan Garrett, but he’s also known as Hellequin. And murdering one of his friends and trying to blow him up is a good way to get this centuries-old sorcerer’s full attention… An old friend’s dead body, a cryptic note, and an explosion that almost costs him his own life propel Nate headfirst into a mystery involving a new threat from an old foe. Now he must piece together the connections between a grisly series of tattooed murder victims, an imprisoned madman, a mysterious alchemist, and a deranged plot to usurp the throne of the hidden realm of Shadow Falls, rival to the power of Avalon
