Whilst the first book in this series was good - this one is excellent, probably because the scene setting was all done in book 1 this one just kicks off and you are hooked from page 1
Renee Raudmans narration is perfect and I would give it 6 stars if possible
My only moan is the rest of the series is all recorded - for example I can buy book 3 on Audio CD from Amazon UK for £25.00! but its not on Audible - in fact none of the rest of this series is on Audible UK (though all but books 3 and 4 are on the US site) so having to resort to Kindle for the rest which is fine when I have time to sit and read but not so good when I want to listen whilst doing other things.
Also the Narrator is one of those rare ones whose performance is actually better than just reading the book so its a bit annoying.
I wouldn't let it put you off the series though as long as you dont mind reading rather than listening
Action, drama, romance, magic, gratuitous violence, shapeshifters, witches and monsters... What else do you need? Oh there’s heroes and heroines too! This series rocks! Excellent delivery by the narrator.

Overall, this is a solid paranormal romance series. In this second installment, we continue to see character growth in our female protagonist, Kate, as well as come to know some of the supporting characters better. The fantasy world created by the writing duo of Ilona Andrews continues to be intriguing, especially with the twist of a magic flare in this book, and I enjoy the many references to various mythological creatures that make their way into these books. The tension between Kate and Curran brings some heat to the plot that doesn't disappoint either.
Once again, Renee Raudman struggles with very specific things, so I can't give her more than an average rating. She's fine with pacing and overall variation of her voice (she's not monotone), but she makes occasional silly mistakes with pronunciation, and her interpretation of characters isn't always great. She's also a bit too heavy with intensity during more poignant material, which is distracting for me as a listener.
I recommend this to fans of paranormal romance, the authors, and the series. People who like paranormal books will probably like it as well if they don't mind a little flare of romance.
