Superb Series of Books

I am writing this review having finished reading the entire Demon Accord series about three weeks ago. Having only recently discovered my liking for supernatural fiction I came across God Touched and decided to give it ago. I finished it in double quick time. It left me wanting more, and I soon devoured the rest of the series. Great characters all properly drawn 3D people with all their faults and weaknesses, set in a supernatural world that doesn't confuse the reader with too many changes to the laws of physics.
What can I say. Read this first book and I would be very surprised if you don't want to read the rest.

Good

I really enjoyed this book. The story is well written and funny, and the characters are great. The narrator is okay, he has a nice voice, although his accents can be a little cringe worthy. Well worth a credit.

Hard to stop listening to this series

Where does God Touched rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I found the world of demons, vampires and werewolves fascinating.
The main character escalates in power through the series, which worries those that would like to control him.
I found the narrator very good, I tried to limit my listening to commuting but I found it hard to stop listening.

good series...

the idea of a low in the ranks cop, who realises he has an ability and becomes more than anyone expects him to be, is a basic story line. However this one by his likeability, manages to pull other supernatural characters to him. He grows in power and acquires "talented" friends to allow him/them to fight even more powerful foes. I disagree with the person who suggested that when Declan O'Carroll came on to the scene, the books lost something... the story goes onto different characters and we find out more about them and then they interact with our main protagonist in the next book, whats the problem with that?

Great read

This book has something different. Not predictable. Kept me unable to stop listening until the end of the book, and made me look for authors next book.

Reads kinda like a teenage boys fantasy

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I guess I'd say it's alright if you want something fairly trashy. Especially if they were a guy.

Would you recommend God Touched to your friends? Why or why not?

I don't think I would. The love story in it is a bit... I dunno predictable. I kept waiting for the main character to put on a fedora and say m'lady.

What does James Patrick Cronin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Clear reading, good pronunciation, very listenable voice

Did God Touched inspire you to do anything?

I dunno maybe read the next one in the series. It's trashy but could definitely be a guilty pleasure

Any additional comments?

I kinda felt like, the story could have been better.

Loser guy becomes super cop, and also super hot, and also gets a super obsessed girlfriend who is also super strong but ultra loving and cutesy. Has to eat tons of greasy food and do nothing to keep in shape.

My eyes did roll a few times. Generally enjoyable though.
