Summary

An unlikely pair on a collision course with trouble.

Bounty Hunter John Smoke never liked the rules. As a result of his overly aggressive - and often illegal - arrest methods, he ended up behind bars. But the Bureau wont’ let him be. Placed in the able care of beautiful, no nonsense, Sidney Shaw, his new FBI handler, Smoke needs to alter his loose-cannon ways to remain a free man.

But there is an unchecked evil festering deep in the heart of the nation’s capital. A shadow conspiracy than won’t be defeated by conventional means. A vast, hidden network of criminals with the terrifying ability to shapeshift into monsters is spreading its supernatural sickness in the very fabric of human society.

No ordinary mortal can fight the evil. But, there is nothing ordinary about John Smoke. Sidney Shaw is about to discover for herself as she follows Smoke’s trail into the darkest, most secret corners of Washington, DC. Smoke and Sidney must fight the evil that will stop at nothing to tear them apart while destroying a nation as well.

If you like Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files and shows such as the X Files and Supernatural, then this dynamic pair is just for you!

This is a complete 10-book series! Nearly 50 hours of listening entertainment!

Great idea but...

I liked the story line. But the narrator was way over the top. She was good with voices and sound effects but her narration for the main character was overly intense.
Quite off putting.

A good listen

I really enjoyed listening to this series. There are a lot of plot improbabilities and it's never going to be a 'classic'. The characters are engaging, the pace is fast but it's a bit like watching an entertaining tv series that's guaranteed to please but will never fully stretch the mind. The character dynamics are fairly standard with a female protagonist who likes to stick to the rules, plan and keep her life under control falling for a male protagonist who is spontaneous, impulsive and breaks the rules without remorse or compunction. The good guys are 'good' and the bad guys are 'bad' and there are no big surprises.

It you want something light, entertaining and engaging then this is an excellent buy.

Fight The Good Fight!

OK. I'll make this simple. And trust me. it is simple. To sum it up- Smoke is John Wick, but add some charm and charisma. Sidney Shaw is as stiff as a log whose laser eyes will bore you through if you cross her...which also has a HUG trust issue (yet can't trust herself in trusting a handsome convict who's appetite comes with pancakes and milk shakes). Take those two, and throw them in a blend of the X-Files, two bounty hunters, and the Black List. And what do you have? PURE. AWESOMENESS!

Holly Adams. Well, I tell ya. You don't come by that many awesome narrators who will throw in Awesome voices, Engrosses you in not only the book, but you LIVE the character. Hands down. Awesome job Holly!

Also, there is a bit of strong swearing.

Other than that, better hope that you have extra PTO cause you may, in fact, become a deader...so beware!

Not a dull moment!

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection. I must admit that I fail to give many reviews because I am too excited to start my next book most of the time. That being said, I had to let everyone know how worthwhile I found this credit was spent. I am honestly bummed to be finished with the entire collection. What an adventure!

I kept trying - i wanted to like this

I really wanted to like this book. But I kept getting bored and the very slow pace of the narration - not every word requires a drawn slow pronounciation. Might be better if I sped up the pace.. but after 6 hours .. i just didn't care much anymore. I am sorry - because the first book was ok - the second just could not hold me.

Reads like a romance novel half the time

Not terrible, but if you want something with depth or don't enjoy sitcom level dialogue, look elsewhere.

Loved it

The storyline has just enough surprises not to be predictable. The narration sells it. The voices are great.

Hang in there it gets better!

OK Im just in book 3 so praying this gets better, but I honestly want to SMACK Sidney, the main character, already. She is an immature b$tch to Smoke, her "partner" in all things "Black Slate", the assignments they get regarding the supernatural. He's saved her life multiple times already, her internal dialogue tells us she likes him, and yet she talks to him in one word clipped aggravated answers EVERY time she speaks to him - actually anytime she speaks to ANYONE else, except her niece. It could be the narrator's take on SIdney, but Im not so sure. The narrator, Holly Adams, is good, "voices" are very distinct, but "Sidney's" voice is slilted and annoying when compared to other characters' voices, AND the base narration (which is Sidney's POV) itself. I really want to like this series, but maaaaaan I dont know.
**UPDATE** Ok it switched to Smoke's perspective in like book 3, 4 I cant remember and everything changed. Narration became much more smooth and Sidney became a little less snippy. Its worth the listen. I got to the point where I was listening while driving, at the store, cooking dinner etc so Id say it kept me engaged afterall :)

DNF

DNF after 2 hours.

The dialogue is so campy and unnatural. I kept expecting something supernatural to happen but it never did. Just really cringe worthy dialogue. The acting makes the characters seem even more unnatural than the words. At first I was torn between continuing or not because it's 48+ hours for 1 credit, but then I asked myself, "Do I really want to listen to 46 more hours of this?" The answer was heck no.
