A fun beginning to an exciting new series
I've been a fan of Dean's work ever since I stumbled across his Coilhunters series. This book is the start to another great series that I can't wait to see progress forward (in audiobook format, since that is the way I enjoy my books). You could say I am a fan of stories involving vampires and vampire lore, so this one naturally fits that bill. I loved the scene-setting at the beginning of the story with the descriptions of the walk into and out of town after a string of bad luck. From there, it was fun to watch James progress toward his destiny of becoming a Blood Warden. This is another solid 5/5 work from Dean. The narrator was a great addition to the story and I loved his vocalization of some of the more esoteric creatures.

A fast gripping start, mild middle and slow end.
The beginning grabbed me so quickly, I was so excited. The story moved and maintained my interest until it started building to the finish. Then the unique parts of the story faded away and it became a bore. This may have been more to do with the narrator not reading with more urgency during the heart racing scenes than the story itself. A couple of characters were introduced in the beginning and not really fleshed out, although they would have been more interesting than standard vampires.
