Summary

Ollie Wit is the strongest Shadow Walker born in decades, but it's a gift with a steep price. Walking in the Shadowlands can bring untold powers and spells, and even greater risks. Every step into that other world brings her closer to the monsters that have haunted her since a child, destroyed her family and wreaked havoc all around her. Kane knows Ollie is the key to getting the spell he needs and he's the answer to ending her torment. But it's a bargain that brings her closer to her own destruction. Even if she succeeds, will she be able to walk away from the newfound power that comes with walking in the Shadowlands?

Narrator was awful

The narrator really distracted from the story. Her voices for all of the characters were very cartoonish. Her voice while narrating Ollie's first person POV was a cross between sultry and surfer dude, but when Ollie spoke it was a totally different voice, making her sound like a strident, petulant, bratty 16 year old. The two very different voices for the same character really took me out of the story. Plus, none of the other characters' voices sounded like real people. Very childish and buffoonish. Can only recommend the print version of this book, not the audio version.

Narration

I love the story, but this narrator is awful. I already returned Donna's audible books "The Wilds" which were narrated by this same lady. Too bad I didn't realize it was the same narrator when I bought this series. Way to ruin a good story.

an amazing read/listen

I have read and listened to this series 3 or 4 times. It never gets old. The character development is amazing and plot keeps you turning the page through the whole series.

A Step in the Dark is ok but I felt like the story had gaping holes. Olivia's abilities were never completely explained and she was kept in the dark throughout the book. This kept her from making more intelligent decisions which made the story difficult sometimes.

Great story

I enjoyed the story and was entertained throughout the book. Only complaint is I didn’t like some of the narrators choices for some of the characters. But overall a great listen. I was given a free copy for an honest review.

I might quit book club because of this

This book was not great. When combined with the painful narration it only got worse. Would have been a DNF if it wasn’t a book club selection.

Not your typical magic wielding story

They cast spells, they do magic, but not the way we usually expect. It's a good story full of sexual tension, cliff hangers, humor, and good old fashioned explosions. I received this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review.
