If you like Iron Druid, give this series a listen!
In a New York minute! Between the action-oriented plot, interesting set of characters, and fantastic narrator (Ian McEuen), this book has it all. Caution: To those who are new to the series, it may not be the best place to starting point. To best appreciate the series, I recommend beginning with book one: Imperium. In fact, after listening to the first chapter, I stopped myself and went back to listen to book 4 (“Fractures”) to refresh myself on recent events in the Caulborn universe. (Trust me, it wasn’t a hardship – Nicholas Olivo’s entire Caulborn series is a fantastic read and Ian McEuen’s voice performance is a pleasure to hear.)
This book is a game changer for Vincent Corinthos – the series is taking a decidedly darker, more serious tone with deadly prophecies brewing in the background. Vincent (the hero who narrates the series) has been maturing and growing through the series, but really takes a huge stride forward in this book in his character development--learning to look before he leaps and considering consequences of his actions.
What’s not to like about Ian McEuen’s performance! The energy and enthusiasm (complete with distinct character voices and accents) he brings to his performance reminds me of Luke Daniels, a favorite Audible narrator who is the voice of the Iron Druid series. Trust me, if you like Luke Daniels, you’ll love Ian McEuen.
Definitely. I liked it so much, that as soon as I finished it the first time, I replayed it a second time. With a couple exceptions (ex: Dresden Files, Iron Druid) there aren’t many audiobooks I am a repeat listener of, but the Caulborn series is one of them. The author and narrator combined are just THAT good.
I’ve fallen in love with the Caulborn series. Nicholas Olivo has managed to come up with an interesting take to the urban fantasy genre, which has become rather crowded and trite.
