Very entertaining story focusing on Warlocks who get their powers from Devils and the inner workings of the Forgotten Realms' Hells.
Reader does well to have separate modes of speech for each character and stays consistent. However, it is hard to realize when there is a shift of perspective. Most jarring when it occurs mid-chapter especially when focusing on the devils.
My only issue with the story are a couple of moments when characters meet in contrived ways that seem impossible. The city that is in the story is relatively the size of New York yet three main characters bump into each other very easily with no one seeking the others out.
Overall a 5 because it's a good listen. 4's because of a few moments that took me out of the story.

Amazing story, and I am so glad it was pointed to in the D&D 5e player's handbook in the entry for Tieflings. Provides some amazing insight into the nature of tieflings and warlocks.
The narration was excellent. I was slightly disappointed with the voice for Asmodeus in the epilogue, as I would have expected a deep menacing almost omnipotent threat, but such a voice would be difficult to achieve without heavy audio effects, which obviously was not the style of this simple narrated recording. The voices through the rest of the book were great.

This is a strong story, with excellent characters, and I look forward to reading the other books. Unfortunately, the narrator really spoils most aspects of this version, most especially in the character and tone of the dialogue which misrepresents the main characters completely. Frustrating!
