Sophomoric effort that desperately needs an editor. The reader is worse: pronunciation errors, poor choices for voices. Maybe if I read it it would be tolerable, but listening was just too painful. Cannot finish.

Would you try another book from Shayne Silvers and/or Marcio Catalano?
Since these have a money-back guarantee I MIGHT consider another from this author, but probably not.
Have you listened to any of Marcio Catalano’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
The narrator was very acceptable but the differences between character voices was mostly only by inflection. It occasionally is confusing who's speaking.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The story had some promise, especially if you like human-transformed dragons stories and Urban Fantasy settings. Also the slight merging of technology and magic was interestingly presented.
Any additional comments?
There was essentially some soft porn hidden as a demonstration of flirting techniques and how to behave at a "posh" gathering as a playboy's escort in the story.

Terry Pratchett did not get Disk world right in his first book. I think the books was very good, but hopefully the next few will be even better than this one. I am not sure about the narrator. some of the voices are rubbish. I will try the next book.

if you can get past the first few chapters, and allow the narrator to get into a flow, It does improve. the narrator becomes less annoying and develops a rhythm. The story is OK, it's no Harry Dresden but there is potential. As long as the main protagonist doesn't turn into a self centered ego centric prat. I'll give the 2nd book a go and hope for the best.
