The title is misleading. The Grigori is only in chapter 1 and chapter 10. The story is about 5 peoples lives that seem to be separate, but end up intertwined.
This is not a story you can listen to while doing other intellectual tasks, it will take all your concentration to understand the plot twist. A backstory that should have been an aside or stated memory is brought about at the beginning of the 2nd chapter, creating confusion, and there are other secondary characters we learn a lot about for no apparent reason. Numerous "huh?"s and the need to back up a bit on occasion, but it all comes together nicely in the end.
I went back and listen to the story again, immediately after the first listen, the "huh?" parts were no longer confusing, but it could have been written better.
Not a great story, not a terrible story, but an interesting story.
P.S. The narrator has a meltdown approx. 27m into chapter 6 that was not edited out - it's rather hilarious. Otherwise the narrator did a good job. I would listen to him again.
