I'm loving the story but can't quite get over the American narrator doing UK accents. Her Welsh sounds like an Irish leprechaun.
What did you love best about Demon Magic?
Now, this book feels more Del than a Cass remake. Sure, there are similar patterns with the guy, learning her new magic, and soul stealing. We even meet a new character - Horatio - who reminds me much of Professor that Cass talks to for help. But the events around all that are very different and very Del like. I like the death magic associated with Del. It's different yet very believable system. Roarke even has his own system of contacts to call when things are needed.
Have you listened to any of Laurel Schroeder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I've grown accustom to listening to Laurel voice this world. I enjoy the voices she gives the men, and all characters. But the men with accents, yes ma'am. lol. There are accents needed for secondary characters as well, and Laurel voices them to give us a feel as we are traveling in those areas of the world.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I very much enjoyed this story as we learn about Del and her parents. Though we haven't met them we get a feel for how she grew up. This is interesting and I'm curious to learn more about them, and who they are. I really think they are special.

*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
We learn a secret of Roarke's when Del finally shares her big secret. Yes, the one about his brother. Though, it's a big thing for him and makes him who he is, it didn't feel that weighted as it was told to us. It is a terrible feeling he carries with him though and something that affects his thinking on their potential relationship. Roarke is a wonderful companion for Del. He feels to fit her well with the darkness of the Underworld in him, and Del.
This book leads us to something (or someone) that will be who Del has to fight. There is a reason for the curse on her, yet no one knows it. This book leaves the hints of a possible next adventure for Del to learn about why the curse from who cursed her. And maybe a big battle with that person.
Any additional comments?
The first 2 of the series are ending in hour long excerpts of the next book, so 7 hours is really 6 hours plus an hour of the next book. Kind of makes me feel cheated when i realize that i have heard that much of the following installment. I hope this trend doesn't continue.
