Good story, okay narrator

I enjoyed these books. I liked the characters and the pace was a nice mix of action and non-action. I like characters that suffer and suffer and suffer some more but still manage to win the final battle. The main character suffers a lot physically and emotionally thereby making it difficult for me to stop listening.

The only issue was the narrator's incredibly slow drawn out speaking style. I had to increase the speed to 1.25 and that improved the pace that I ended up enjoying the narrator. I thought she did accents and female voices very well. The men were sometimes a little to gravelly but acceptable. Her habit of over pronouncing the last letter of the last word in almost every sentence made it impossible to listen at regular speed but at the faster speed, it was barely noticeable.

All in all a good listen if you like these kind of worlds with demons and angels.

Stories had a good pace; narrator no so much

I'm a big fan of this series and Preternatural Affairs (there is some overlap). The narrator's pace is too slow for me, but I sped it up to 1.15, and that sounded normal.
