The drama is no longer interrupted with musical interludes. So much better to listen to. The narrator continues to bring the story to life. Straight on to the next book for me!
These are not separate stand alone stories, rather it's one, long, continuing tale - feels a little like Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time in that regard. Fortunately, not much time is wasted rehashing what has gone before in order to bring a new listener up to speed (this is a series you don't want to start midway through), which makes it a pleasure to listen to book by book in quick succession.
I had a moment of concern near the beginning of this instalment that we might be venturing into "padding it out" territory - fortunately that feeling was short-lived, and it picks back up to it's normal furious pace.
We finally reach the "big reveal" (even if the previous clues had long since given it away) but there are a few new threads of interest introduced (I think - not sure where it all might lead though) . Yes, it's following a typical formula of "hero finds himself in a bit of pickle, but still manages to save the day"; and although the outcome is predictable, the way he gets there is not...........keeps it entertaining, and the pace means you can't nod off else you'll miss something.
Perfect entertainment for those long commutes - and for once I'm not overly bothered when those trains are delayed yet again and I get a little longer to escape to another world where good eventually overcomes bad.

A fantastic read! I could not put this book down. Definitely a must read for any fansty fan.
Especially when tavi came out and duelled. Good work Jimmy. I loved the Dresden files and now this!!
