It can be hard to let go of a favourite storyline that has absorbed and entertained you, and my first reaction this new world from the pen of Kevin Hearn's was at first disturbed by its complete lack of resemblance to the Iron Druid style or story line. The discordance was perhaps exacerbated by the narration by Luke Daniels, as his voice is familiar in the roles of all those wonderful characters. However as the new characters and their stories developed my ear became accustomed to the new voices Daniels so expertly brings to life, and the new world they populate took on shape and depth. By the end I was sad to leave them, and now eagerly await the next instalment in the Plague of Giants series

I find the woman performer almost impossible to understand, and keep missing what she says. Her pronunciation of consonants is just not clear enough. In combination with the accent used and speed of delivery it just becomes a drone. Became too frustrated and abandoned this book.
Couldn’t really judge story because of this
I couldn't stand it after 4 chapters, I had to give up and return the book. I have every Iron Druid book and short story Kevin Hearne has written and rate him very highly. But I can not believe that he has written this mind numbing and boring piece. was it written before his other books or is someone else using his name.
I can't believe that I pre-ordered this book.
Will NOT be buying any of his books again without checking them out first.

As others have said the narrative hops around all over the place. Gave up after a few chapters.

Extremely likable characters with a well developed story told in an interesting way, with great narrators doing a good job of differentiating between characters. I would highly recommend although it takes a little bit to get used to the style of the book.
Enjoyed this, but not gripping like his iron Druid chronicles, as you keep skipping between characters, you don’t get as engrossed in the action.
