Sorry, I can't write a review for the first book in the series. I listened to it on my daughters account and it won't let me review. Obviously I liked it or we wouldn't have this review.
This is the second book in the BSI series. This is a really fun book with lots of action, a well-definied world and interesting likeable characters. Some folks said this wasn't as good as the first book, but I actually liked this one better myself. Basically this is a story about an agent in what is the equivalent of the monster control bureau in the Monster Hunter International series. It's the supernatural equivalent of the FBI.
The characters are all dialed up to 11, but they still have their own flaws. I also, like that the author has no qualms about killing off major characters. The job these folks do is very dangerous and the high mortality rate is reflected in the stories.
If like action packed urban fantasy this is a good series to follow. MHI fans will love this one.

Who was your favorite character and why?
Kal Hakala......but there are some other pretty cool characters
What does Damon Abdallah bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I think he does an outstanding job. Perfect voice for the main character, very passable for the others. Most authors have difficulty switching characters without using the same phrases and semantics of the main characters. This does happen in, but can't blame the reader.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Do you feel lucky, punk? Too damn bad!
Any additional comments?
This is fast becoming a favorite series for me. The main character is flawed like a good character should be, he battles internally as well as externally. This book took on new perspectives without losing the main character and most importantly, without straying away from the heart of the story. Kudos to Stone, he's creating a MHI type series with a Dresden persona main character.

While he could be forgiven the mispronunciation of Vosges, not knowing how to say simple French names and parts of the body goes to show how little preparation he made before narrating the book
This story goes places that book one or MHI or Dresden Files has never been. Well worth a listen.
