This last audiobook in the REN series does not disappoint, the evolution of the characters, the humour, heartbreak, intrigue and suspense will not let you put this captivating audiobook down. Not only does Ren have to navigates the turbulent waters of becoming both a father and a grandfather, but he must also discover the mole within the Lucidite Institute and defeat the brilliant Vivian before her plans, for both him and the middlings, come to fruition. The excellent narrator breaths life into these amazing characters and he hits the accents, nuances and emotions just right. This is a heart wrenching, hair pulling, breath taking, beautiful end to the series. The twists and turns in the the plot, the growth and change in the characters, and the roller coaster of emotions the author and narrator takes us on is simply amazing. From Ren himself, to Adelaide, Dalia and even Vivian, the maturation and depth of character shown is excellent and yet the author and narrator still managed to keep their individual quirks and personalities intact throughout the evolution. I loved how characters from her other books were interweaved in the story, not only enhancing the story but also adding depth to the Dream Traveller world as a whole and helping the reader form a cohesive timeline between the various books. I am sad that this is the final REN book, as I have truly enjoyed this amazing character. His caustic wit, arrogance, dry sarcastic comments, brilliant mind and flawed personality has kept us laughing, made us want to strangle him, but has also caused our hearts to bleed. Tim Campbell did an amazing job with Ren's accent and portrayal of his abrasive, yet appealing personality. The amount of emotion that this character has been able to elicit from readers is a testament to how well written these books are and how fully developed this character is. We will mourn that we will no longer hear that snarky British accent as we get to listen to Sarah's words. This audiobook was provided to me at no cost in exchange for an honest review.

Ren's new found daughter Adelaide is with child, HOLY COW! Still working on how his daughter will fit into his life, Ren is blindly slapped with the news that his accident is having an accident. Good Lord help us all!
Ren and Dahlia had just gotten back together when Adelaide showed up to throw a monkey in the mix. Having a mini me wasn't working for Ren at all, but she grew on him, like an unwanted goiter. Just as the happy father/daughter duo started relaxing into their new relationship, Ren finds out from Trent that she is pregnant. All the while, Ren is still hunting down the notorious Vivian, this weeks villain. I have to say, just when I thought Ren was beat, by both his daughter and Vivian, he goes and has hindsight! The plot twist was brilliant, and I loved every minute of it! The drama Adelaide served with her newborn was very intense, and unpredictable. I really appreciated how the story stayed true to the real world in regards to Adelaide's postpartum depression. Adelaide felt abandoned by Ren and her mother, so it is natural that she not have any maternal instincts for her own child, or even know how to raise him on her own. The entire family dynamic is really screwed up, but their hearts for one another are there, just buried under a lot of negative memories.
In the end, I was brought to tears, whether sad or happy I will not say. You will have to find out how their story ends for yourself. I highly recommend the Ren series because it has been the most insightful and real book to date...for a fictional story that is, and he says a lot of bad words, right up my alley!
Tim Campbell returns to narrate for Sarah Noffke, yay! We almost lost him back on book 2 production, but with the help of her fans and friends, we were able to beat Tim into submission. Tim performs on a 5 star quality level with every performance! His hard edged brilliant tone for Ren is spot on, and he is just such a great story teller. I love Tim's British accent, (I have no idea if he's British) and I could listen to him all day! Great job Tim!
