A great ending to a richy dark but fun series!

Wonderfully narrated with plenty of larger than life.characters! Very fun banter and full of witty lines!

The unique setting of a demon encroached world, where the populace drown their sorrow by ingesting narcotics bugs was a hoot to be in too.

And although over for now, I do hope for more...

Promise Unfulfilled

Books one and two in this series were laugh out loud fun to listen to. I had to rewind several times just to hear parts I missed, as I was laughing so much at the antics of some of the wonderful characters. Unfortunately in the third book, things went from bad to stupid. Angele Masters did a brilliant job of narrating this series, and in the first two books it was her delivery that made it such a joy to listen. But even the best narrator can't do much with poor material. A very disappointing end to what had promised to be a fantastic series
