Unfortunately for him, the paranormal community does have an interest in him, or at least in his secret. Devon is exceptional in solving cases using his uncanny intuition.
When Devon uncovers a violent murder, he knows it is not a natural crime. In order to solve this case and expose the murderer, he will have to go undercover as a wizard in the paranormal university, Quintessence. He soon discovers that his talent has more to do with supernatural forces than he ever knew.

Such a GREAT Listen!!!

This is my second Rain Oxford audiobook, also narrated by Todd Menesses, and I enjoyed this one even MORE than the first! The writing is so clever and Todd Menesses does an amazing job bringing Rain's imagination to life! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I've been taking a chance on more fantasy and paranormal type audiobooks and, so far, Rain Oxford is definitely my favorite.

Dark Waters tells the story of a detective who finds himself caught up in a world he really has no interest in, but discovers he thrives in quite well. I was an avid True Blood watcher and it was fun listening to descriptions of shape shifters and Fairies and vampires and such. Don't get me wrong, this has nothing to do with True Blood, but if you enjoyed that, you'll DEFINITELY love Dark Waters. Lots of good stuff about magic.

The writing is so vividly descriptive and the pacing is phenomenal. It made me wish I'd been listening to audiobooks for much longer than I have!!! Great job, Rain! This is definitely film quality work. Very well done.

Great stroy and narration

What made the experience of listening to Dark Waters the most enjoyable?

The narrator did a great job. I could tell all of the characters apart easily.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I loved the Guardian books and I love that this is much darker. It's definitely for an older audience, but with the same descriptive writing style. There's death without it being too gory, romance without being chick-lit and adult language without being vulgar. It has a lot of suspense, magic and action.

Which character – as performed by Todd Menesses – was your favorite?

Devon is my favorite because he's smart and sarcastic. Darwin is a close second because he's adorable and his accent is cool. I read the books in this series so I know the characters get fleshed out. I didn't like Henry in this one and I really thought he was going to turn out differently, but now I think he's awesome.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A fast paced suspenseful paranormal mystery.

Any additional comments?

Well written and narrated. It wasn't a very long book, but I can't think of anything to add. Great pacing. I can't wait to listen to the next one.
