This audiobook is very good. It has an immersive plot, fun characters, lots of action and adventure. The protagonist Asher is quirky, fun, and a little bit weird. If you crave a grand adventure chock full of sarcasm, action, adventure, magic and just the right hint of romance, I urge you to pick up this audiobook.

Immortals, witches, weres, fey, and other things populate this book. The main character is a young man who is immortal. I think there was a prequel I missed when he realizes this because there were several references to past events.
I did enjoy this but there were several things that prevent me from giving it 5 stars across the board. There were a few errors in either pronunciation or grammar that I noticed and distracted me. In addition to the regular blood and guts fight scenes (which I could handle), there was a torture scene which was too much for my tastes. Also, the ultimate bad guy that they ended up fighting was almost cartoonish - I liked the earlier, more believable bad guys. The book ends in an obvious "there is a sequel" coming way with some loose ends still out there. So, with those caveats in mind, I do recommend it.

I absolutely loved this book! There was just the right amount of everything in this book to make you want to read the next from the author! This is an awesome read and it leaves you wanting more !! There is never a dull moment in this book. The story plot, character, writing style and narration is outstanding. From start to finish it is thrilling and the passion in it I would definitely suggest this book to anyone as a great. I cant wait for more books from Author.
Derek Edgington crafts a world base on the real one but filled with all sorts of supernaturals hidden from most people in the same vein as other books like the Dresden files. It feels like there is a whole lot of history in this world that I would be interesting to delve into if we get a chance in other books. I would happily listen to another book that they have written.
As the main character has limited knowledge to start with we get to learn along with them. This leads to a sold journey of discovery and development it is interesting as the character often knows they don't have a clue what will happen next The writing style fits the character well and as it is grounded in their point of view it keeps it tense and engaging as you can really get inside their head. If you get on with the main character and their sense of humor you will like this book. The book is well paced and keeps you listing to find out what happens next.
I love the bar in this book, I only wish it was my local.
The narrator Nik Magill has a great range and does a wonderful job narrating.each character is given an unique voice that suits them. The characters come across as haveing real emotion and motivations. I would happily listen to another book narrated by them.
This book started strong and ended well, if there were more hours in the day I would have finished listing to this far sooner defiantly was well worth a listen, I am very happy with the time I spent listing to this book and am looking forward to listing to the next one.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary honest review.
