Publisher's Summary

Mike Auburn dangles above the city of Chicago from the beams of a half-built skyscraper. He is seconds from plummeting towards the circuit board of buildings and streetlights below, but oblivion is not what he seeks - it's the dead.
Obsessed with discovering evidence of the afterlife, Mike's death-defying stunts have brought him closer than ever to lifting the veil of reality, always just out of reach. However, his ventures to the edge have not gone unnoticed, and a mysterious organization by the name "O'Neill" seeks to recruit him to their own cause: preparing the city for impending Ragnarok, the end of the world as they know it.
Before long, a world ruled by scientific method and rational thinking is challenged by the supernatural - luring the dead, the damned, and the demons that have long awaited the return of magic, and they will stop at nothing to bring it back for good. Suddenly, Mike is at the center of a battle between the forces of reason, of good, of evil...and everything in between.

Of course I'm biased...

Where does The Seventh Age rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Well, I normally am not a big audiobook fan. But, as strange as this sounds, hearing someone else, in this case James, read your own work... is a great way for an author to hear the story as if it WAS by someone else! One hell of an engaging ride.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Seventh Age?

Hands down, Mike Auburn's sarcasm. It comes across SO well in the audio format. While all these crazy things are happening all around... Mike's quips are even better in audio format than in my own brain.

What does James Patrick Cronin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Pacing. Hands down. James brings an element of pacing to the novel that captures the mood and intent of the story and it enhances each chapter. If you were to just read each chapter, you might fly through them, or read slower than intended. James brings to life those tense moments.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

All the power of creation... and you humans use your divine gifts to track taco trucks.

Any additional comments?

If you are looking a brutal urban fantasy novel with a healthy dash of sarcasm... here you go. Of course, as stated above... I'm biased. I wrote the damn thing. :).

A dive into the shadows

What did you love best about The Seventh Age?

I loved that is is written for those of us who enjoy the supernatural creatures that are not fluffy and diluted for teenage consumption. That still have their dark and gritty sides.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mike. Can't explain without giving too much away.

Would you listen to another book narrated by James Patrick Cronin?

I would give him a second chance his accents change for a few characters through out the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
