Publisher's Summary

It's been said that monsters cry when a good man goes to war. But they should run screaming like little school girls when that man is secretly a wizard, and maybe not necessarily good.
Nate Temple's all-consuming quest to avenge his parents is temporarily put on hold when shape-shifting dragons invade St. Louis. And perhaps cow-tipping the Minotaur for answers might not have been Nate's smartest opening move, because now every flavor of supernatural thug from our childhood nightmares is gunning for him. Nate learns that the only way to save his city from these creatures is to murder his best friend.
Nate's choice will throw the world and his own conscience into cataclysmic chaos: avenge his parents or become a murderer to save his city. Because to do either, he's going to have to show the world that magic is very, very real, and that monsters are very, very hungry.
If you like Jim Butcher, Kevin Hearne, or Patrick Rothfuss, you will love the first installment of The Nate Temple Supernatural Thriller series.

Fantastic Story, Okay Narrator

What a fantastic, action packed story! Very much like The Dresden Files. A fun world filled with wizards, werewolves and dragons.

I really enjoyed listening to this story. It was fast paced and had multiple storylines that weave in and out of each other well. It leaves the ending to allow for a, hopefully, long series of books, but closes up the story itself nicely without a massive cliffhanger. Which, personally, I prefer.

There is romance, but the story is not overwhelmed by it and it adds to the all over world building instead of just hanging out on the side.

My only suggestion would be that the author reign in his love of cleavage. If I have to read about this girl or that having a nice rack one more time I'm going to scream.

The narrator is okay. Not great, but not so bad I couldn't listen to him. He speaks much too fast and you have to slow him down a click on the audio player. He also has a horrible habit of pausing in the middle of a sentence. I get that there's probably a comma there but holy cow!

"He watched her run." "From the corner ." instead of "He watched her run from the corner."

It just doesn't flow well and can pull you out of a perfectly good moment. Otherwise, though, his use of voices was good and I could tell who was speaking all the time. Why Nate's Norse werewolf BFF sounds like a surfer dude from California I don't know but ...okay, I can live with it.

Looking forward to the next in the series.
