Kim Harrison's series is terrific and this one does not disappoint. The new narrator made this a difficult listen though. She does an awful job with the story. The mispronounced words, high pitched childish use of a voice for Jenks, making Rachel come off as a squealing high school girl and missing Ivy completely really disappointed me. I'll never understand why a company has one narrator for a series of books then suddenly changes. I know each narrator has their own style but you'd think they or the company would do a better job of matching them up.

How disappointing. I was a fan of the first 5 books narrarated by Marguerite Gavin. You become attached to the narrator, and although it can be a challange to adjust to a new narrator, it was not even a possibility to enjoy the story with the new narrator. Her voice is an irritating cross between Sarah Vowell and Ellen Degeneres. The pixies voices are like nails on a chalk board, but worse than that is the mis-pronounciation of words that we became familiar with in the previous books, "ley lines" "Piscary" and "Takata" are all wrong, wrong, wrong. I wish it didn't make such a difference to my enjoyment of Kim Harrison's work, but it does. I wish I had read the reviews before hand, I would have opted for the paperback.

I have been following the series in print, and was delighted when I saw the audio.Reasonable but not fantastic narration- the demon's British accent never quite achieves sinister and it would be hard for any narrator to live up to the dangerous sexyness of Ivy's 'grey silk' voice. Still, it was clear, easy to follow, not annoying and I'm sure it's one I'll listen to several times with pleasure.

This book is as enjoyable as the others but is hard to enjoy as the narrator is different then the other books, she is a good narrator but after hearing the characters one way it is very difficult to hear them a different way. Maybe you should read this one to avoid the confusion and download the others.
