Publisher's Summary

A thrilling new Victorian-era urban fantasy for fans of Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid Chronicles, the Showtime series Penny Dreadful, and the Sherlock Holmes movies featuring Robert Downey, Jr.
They are the realm's last, best defense against supernatural evil. But they're going to need a lot more silver.
As fog descends, obscuring the gas lamps of Victorian London, werewolves prowl the shadows of back alleys. But they have infiltrated the inner circles of upper-crust society as well. Only a handful of specially gifted practitioners are equipped to battle the beasts. Among them are the roguish Simon Archer, who conceals his powers as a spell-casting scribe behind the smooth veneer of a dashing playboy; his layabout mentor Nick Barker, who prefers a good pub to thrilling heroics; and the self-possessed alchemist Kate Anstruther, who is equally at home in a ballroom as she is on a battlefield.
After a lycanthrope targets Kate's vulnerable younger sister, the three join forces with fierce Scottish monster-hunter Malcolm MacFarlane - but quickly discover they're dealing with a threat far greater than anything they ever imagined.

What would have made The Shadow Revolution better?

A plot or what's called a "story line" would have made this book better.

Would you ever listen to anything by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith again?

Probably not, at least not for a while.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Nicholas Guy Smith?

Sure, the reader wan't bad.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

...lots of action. The book sort of jumps from action scene to action scene. If that's what your looking for this would work I guess. That said I like a lot of action but it needs a story..some kind of context.

Any additional comments?

louder and funnier

It SHOULD have been good... Victorian setting? check. Supernatural elements? check. Some attempts to add science? check. Interesting people? check. But there was no sense of FUN. No witty comments, no repartee, no tongue in cheek. No thank you.
