Not my usual, but so entertaining

I have never listened to or read a book like this. I wanted to step outside my usual genre and try something very different. I'm so glad I did. Jiraiya Addams voice makes the experience of listening to this book intense. He has a wide range and wow can he make the creepy parts even creepier. This book had a lot of characters and he somehow had them all sounding uniquely different. I'm going to look for the next books in this series in audiobook format to keep the experience going. As I stated this is not my usual genre, but Adam Lance Garcia is great at creating imagery and character building. I even learned the history to the term pulp fiction.

Classic Pulp-Hero Vs. Cthulhoid Pulp-Horros

I first discovered the Green Lama through another audio-book 'Green Lama: Mystic Warrior', a collection of shorter stories by various authors, and with the same narrator. I liked it well enough to follow it to 'Scions', and I'm glad I did! Garcia's version of the classic characters is simultaneously true to the 'feel' of the old pulp novels of the 30s,but with some interesting twists and expansions that will engage modern readers,such as lightly touching on social issues like racism and persecution of LGBTQ people.). Fans of H.P. Lovecraft will be pleased by the inclusion of content from his famous Cthulhu Mythos, which I gather continues throughout the series. Once the action gets started (which doesn't take too long) it never stops, and the combination of derring-do, cliffhangers, and gory/horrific imagery kept me up listening past my bedtime. The bad-guys are REALLY bad, and how they pursue their awful goals will likely creep you out. The sound quality is pretty good,and the narrator's voice-acting is excellent : the various characters are distinct with unique voices, and the more intense emotional scenes are handled with vividness without being too over-the-top. My favorite character-portrayals were Caraway (the tough-guy detective), Jean (the actress turned daredevil adventuress), and of course the Lama himself (with a fierce passion for justice simmering under the serene calmness). I plan to listen to the rest of the series as it comes out.
