I, too, thought they picked the wrong guy to be the voice of Dante. Some people are far more sensitive to the narrator's voice than others (this means you, Gordon). But if you can just relax and pay attention to the words rather than how they are delivered, I think you will find this a powerful story.
This is the last book of a trilogy and it brings the story to a magnificent ending which I would never have suspected was awaiting us as I read the first book. I suppose it would be possible to understand and follow this book as a stand alone, but your experience and understanding will be very much richer if you read all three books in their proper order.
The main character through most of the book is Dante, a sorcerer. He is a very powerful magician with particularly bad control of his temper. In this third book of the trilogy, we finally learn about those parts of his past which contribute to his apparent hatred of everybody. But we also learn that he has a destiny which even he has never suspected which also drives his rages.
I find Dante not only the most interesting character in this trilogy but one of the more interesting and original characters in all the fantasy I have ever read.
I recommend this book.

If your player allows it, reset the speed for Dante's character to double speed. Not a perfect solution but it does help.

As many have commented, the narration can make or break an audiobook and in this case I feel that the voice of Dante really detracts from the story; so bad in fact, that I am having a job getting through it. The narration is stilted and the words are over-enunciated, rather than being smoothly read. Very odd.
I haven't got as far as the other narrators yet, so I hope it will improve
