Alone and friendless, the Wanderers, servants of Fate, maintain the balance between the supernatural world and mankind's. For millennia the Wanderers protected that balance - but now a renegade Wanderer arises to open the doors between the earth and our greatest nightmares. Years ago Fate scavenged Rafe from the battlefields of Vietnam, handing him over to a mentor he barely knew before the rogue Wanderer slaughtered him. Skilled but only half trained, Rafe tracks down a warning from a naiad in Alabama only to find a coven of witches probing deeper into dark magics than they ever intended. Rafe must stop the witches from destroying the already fragile balance...but can he do it before the lovely young witch helping Rafe gets sacrificed for the greater good?

A good telling of a pretty good story
The best thing about the story was the some of the flashback parts.
The most interesting aspect was the backstory and some of the mythical characters. Some of the dialog was a little cringe-worthy though.
I enjoyed Mack's overall performance and thought he especially did a good job on the voices.
I didn't have any extreme reaction to this book. I laughed in parts but never connected enough with the characters to feel deeply one way or the other.
When I first started listening to this story, I wondered if maybe I had missed the first book. It kind of throws you in without really knowing anything about anything, I hope a prequel is made. Some of the stories hinted at in this book could be really entertaining!
YES! Firstly, I LOVED this story. It's an imagination-run-wild sort of tale. There's so, so much to it, and the author really deftly intertwined and utilized his skil to propel the narrative forward. The narrator though, took it over the top. Honestly, one of the best audiobooks I've listened to in a while (and my standards are pretty high)
His voice is full and rich. Bodied, I guess is a good word. He differentiates between speakers superbly.
There were several, but I don't want to ruin the listen for folks who haven't read the book.
Can't wait to listen to the next book when it's out on audio!
