Now it is the one man with his own secrets discovering many more about those around him along with facing a demon of unusual origins.
That’s all I’ll review of the story itself as I have written a review on the actual book. I did enjoy the story, but here I’ll review the audio aspects.
Let me start by saying that I’m new to liking audiobooks. The first ones I heard had me bashing them and vowing to never even try one. I found some that were narrated extremely well. Then I began to want to listen to more. Now on to this book….
I read the ebook version before I listened to the story. Why? Because I was nervous that if I didn’t like the audiobook that I wouldn’t give the story its due. I knew what was going to happen then as I listened. I was able to focus more on the presentation. And it was well done.
The narration was done by one person. There is nothing wrong with that, but it can limit my enjoyment of it. But that didn’t happen here. Instead of one narrator making horrible attempts at the various sounds of the character’s voices, this ones was done where I could distinguish them and enjoy them. I could enjoy that narrator again.
Like mystery, mythology, and adventure? Give this audiobook a try. I think you will enjoy every minute of it.
