This series reminds me a whole lot of the Sookie Stackhouse books, and the fact that it's narrated by Johanna Parker (narrator for the Sookie series) made the similarity even more pronounced. That could be a criticism in that maybe it's a little too related, or maybe a little too stereotypical of the genre, but I really liked it. I would say that it's also better writing, but I feel like it's harder to judge that in audio. Of Jacqueline Carey's other books, I've only read Kusheil's Dart (and loved it), but if I hadn't known I wouldn't have guessed that they were written by the same person. This series is a lot lighter in tone, and so far, a lot less sexy. Both Dark Currents and Autumn Bones were really fun listens, and I'm looking forward to continuing the series when the next book is released.

I just haven't come across a book by Jacqueline Carey that I didn't like. This series is excellent and I loved this book. It helped immensely that Johanna Parker is one of my favorite narrators. There's nothing profound about the story; its just a good entertaining read. The characters are well realized and the narrator does a great job bringing them to life. I hope to see more for this series. Who would have thought Ghouls could be so interesting!
