Entertaining - improves along the way?

I'm getting book 2 because the writing and narration improved along the way. I was almost ready to bail on this book due to the annoying "Valley Girl" manner of speech with the rising tone at the end of the sentences. Thankfully, the narrator brought that down mid way through the book, but not totally? :)

This was not the most sophisticated book I've ever read, and is probably just a notch above Young Adult? The Iron Druid series is a better presentation of dialogue and rich details from research. But, while I'm waiting for the next Iron Druid book (author Kevin Hearne) . . . and, for the next Peter Grant book (author Ben Aaronovitch) . . . this will fill the time?

Given that the book got better near the end, I'm hoping that the series will too. Hope the narrator drops the Valley Speak. Book 2 could be awesome?

Action, Yay! Relationship, Boo!

The character is interesting right from the start. Conroe does a great job slowly building the story. We get a real sense of his abilities and how they affect his life, and his non-supernatural talents feel developed and cultivated throughout his life. As we get to know Chris, his character seems more and more real. It's too bad I can't say the same about Tanya. She's so two-dimensional, which is made doubly obvious and irritating by the proximity to our lead. Their relationship moved so fast, I got whiplash. That said, the moment they exchanged gifts late in the book is more than a little touching.

Cronin's narration is excellent. Each character has their own voice and you can always tell who's speaking. He is at least as responsible as the author for the depth of Chris, giving him an every man voice without it becoming too bland.

All in all, a great (if not amazing) listen that has me hooked on the series.
