Sometimes a character is so flawed they are no longer believable. Nate Temple is one such character. When he gets the upper hand fighting bad guys, he monologues until the bad guys get the upper hand again. The bad guys are not plausible either -- any one of them would have killed Nate the first time they met him. Perhaps while Nate was monologuing. He spends most of the story ignoring every tool which might allow him to prevail, including his magic. The book gets less interesting after enough "Jesus Christ! This guy is too stupid to live!" moments.

What can you say about a book with no character development and no plot? Main character gains unlimited power, but can hardly ever use it. Blunders through challenges with no rational planning. Always fails to more clever opponents, but manages to survive because his enemies, figuratively speaking, lay down and die to to accommodate him. Endless digressions and descriptions for no reason other than filler. The book is one constant downer with no victories and intelligence demonstrated by protagonist. The secondary characters are all shallow with no personality. Author plagiarizes bits and pieces from other urban fantasies and adds few,if any, twists of his own. The only saving grace is the narrator, Joel Richards, whose sonorous tenor and reasonably versatile variety of voices and accents makes a thoroughly boring narrative enjoyable to listen.
