Narration is just plain awful!!!
Let me first say, that I love the Anita Blake series as a whole. Though this book is not my favorite book in the series, it's still a really good read. It is, however, the worst audiobook in the series so far.
I completely dislike the narrator change(I can't come up with stronge enough words). She sounds way to macho to be the sexy necromancer, we've always known. She completely ruins Jean Claude's accent. I'm not sure if I want to laugh or cry, because she has ruined something that I hold dear to me.
There also is this awful menacing music that plays randomly through out some scenes. It's really annoying and distracting.
I was happy when I found out that they were releasing the early Anita books in audio format, but this has been a massive let down. I'm pretty sure this will be my last Anita Blake audiobook purchase with this narrator change. Save your credits, but buy the book. You'll be happy you did!

Book 1 in the Anita Blake series
I so like Kimberly Alexis narrtion better than Cynthia Hollway in the later books, but oh well, a good series, 18 in all, it starts off slow, but ends with a bang...keep listening, their worth it...
