Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered what made Crispin so wicked - why his heart is so black? What drives his hunger for total control, and his need to cause such horror and pain to others? Was he born this way, or did something horrific happen to him as a child? What goes on behind those dark, hauntingly beautiful, blue eyes?
Step into the mind of a killer. He is charming, cunning, and his velvet voice will enchant you. Is Crispin really as evil as he is portrayed, or is there more hidden beneath the skin? Now you can find out all about Crispin, and what makes him tick.
Warning: This audiobook is very addictive. It also has sexual content, bad language, violence, and the most malevolent man you will hate to love.

Great start!!

This is the first book in the series that I have listen to. It will definitely not be the last. Crispin, I can tell just from the backstory that he will be evil and all because of his evil father. This is definitely a story where nature versus nurture is obvious. It makes you realize how dearly people need their mother's love and their fathers approval and growing up without one and never getting the other, definitely plays a huge role in the person your going to be. I can only imagine what this series has in store. Sarah Puckett, the narrator did a fabulous job. She kept me engaged and the emotion and nuances in her voice were spot on. I hope they keep her on for the remainder of the series. I would recommend to grab this short story and get started on what is sure to be a great series.

Whoa

Well that certainly was different... and totally awesome! This tale, the beginning to a series it seems, while short really packs a punch. Crispin is a character you will want to follow, to understand and will love to hate. A victim of his own circumstances, Crispin is an example of nature v. nurture gone wrong. It's hard to say much more without giving away spoilers! Sarah Puckett did a fantastic job with narration of this story. I would recommend 'A Darkening of Magic' to any readers who enjoy an explicit and truly bizarre, short horror story!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
