Would you try another book from Erin M. Evans and/or Dina Pearlman?
Of course. The first Brimstone Angles book was fantastic, and the author as well as the narrator do a great job through and through. This particular book, however, will test your patience with the AUDIOBOOK format.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Tam. He's finally got a chance to shine in this novel and gives a better understanding of life as a cleric, harper, and as a troubled man. His moments are my favorite for the first half of the book.
What three words best describe Dina Pearlman’s performance?
"I really tried." The issue, and the point of me WRITING a review, is that this book is completely smothered in flashbacks, cross scenes (where two separate scenes are happening at the same time, flipping between them both). Pearlman does a great job with her character voices, in my opinion, but most of these flashback scenes and illusory details end up sounding like a paragraph with no punctuation - no way of telling what she's talking about or why.
I would have preferred if there was a tonal difference between the present and flashbacks as well as a pause between scenes and flashbacks.
[Example]"A hand reached out and rested on her shoulder why hadn't Tam come to check on Dahl's progress?"
Did Brimstone Angels: Lesser Evils inspire you to do anything?
Buy the next two books - which is all an author can hope for!
Any additional comments?
Please please please please realize there will be scenes in this book that will not make sense at all unless you're paying close attention. Whenever something sounds confusing to you - i suggest you back the audobook up a fair amount and re-listen more closely. Take a breath, don't get mad, and realize that it's SUPPOSED to be disjointed and off-putting in those particular parts. As readers, most of us would re-read those lines 2 or 3 times before moving on, you don't get that option listening to the audio. Just bear with it.

sometimes it was hard to distinguish characters but overall well-read good serous jumping to the next book
