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...
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.
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.
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.
All the power of creation... and you humans use your divine gifts to track taco trucks.
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
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.
Mike. Can't explain without giving too much away.
I would give him a second chance his accents change for a few characters through out the book.
