This review will be primarily focused on the audiobook version.

I’ve made it clear in my other reviews that I’m a (new) fan of this literary universe. I think Nicky is a badass and incredible protagonist. I like that we as readers get to catch up with some of our flavorite characters from other books and series in the universe.

The narration really did it for me with this book. The narrator really is excellent. The combat scenes had my blood pounding. I was hanging onto every word and could not wait to know what was going to happen next.

The two issues I have with the book are relatively minor. The first one is more of a personal problem. There were too many characters with names that begin with D. I have a really hard time with names. I’m 5 or 6 books into this literary universe and I know 3 characters’ names. Nicky, Cain, and Mercy Brown. When characters who all had a name that began with D were talking or being mentioned, I couldn’t follow along due to that problem for me.

The second issue is at the start of chapter 2, the audio is noticeably different. it sounded like a completely different person to me. (Names aren’t the only thing I struggle with. Voices are included among them.) The audio sounded deeper or lower in quality. It’s difficult to describe.

I’m extremely excited to continue with this series. If you enjoyed book 1, you’ll enjoy book 2. If you enjoyed the other series set in this world, this is more of the same.
