Bonus material! Includes the prologue and first chapter of The Drafter, the first novel in Kim Harrison's new series!
Don't miss this thrilling first look into the elite world of Peri Reed, government agency operative extraordinaire, and catch more of her character in The Drafter, the first book in the all-new suspense trilogy from number-one New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison, out September 1.
Every hero, even the accidental ones, has a beginning. Silas' radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti's research has enough clout not to care until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it. Love can't alter time, and sometimes even being able to rub out a single mistake isn't enough....

Hammy Narrator Spoils Recording
I've always enjoyed Kim Harrison's work and had no reason to anticipate otherwise with this new series, but the narrator makes it almost unbearable.
A good narrator pulls you into the story and allows you to ride the current without drawing attention to herself. Not this one. She is so busy ee-nun-cee-ate-ing and emoting, she imbues every trivial observation (i.e. "He picked up the pencil.") with a gravitas more appropriate to the report of a plane crash. Everything she says sounds affected and phony; we're not supposed to hear the (bad) acting, but it permeates every word.
I don't think I can make it through the series with this narrator and I'm annoyed that I've wasted my money. I'll have to check the books out at the library.
Adored The Hollows. Not so much this one.
