Loved it! Lots of action, funny, and well-written. I can't wait for the next one!

I found the start a bit slow but I am glad I persevered with the story. Possibly though a one time listen.
This is my second Rain Oxford audiobook, also narrated by Todd Menesses, and I enjoyed this one even MORE than the first! The writing is so clever and Todd Menesses does an amazing job bringing Rain's imagination to life! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I've been taking a chance on more fantasy and paranormal type audiobooks and, so far, Rain Oxford is definitely my favorite.
Dark Waters tells the story of a detective who finds himself caught up in a world he really has no interest in, but discovers he thrives in quite well. I was an avid True Blood watcher and it was fun listening to descriptions of shape shifters and Fairies and vampires and such. Don't get me wrong, this has nothing to do with True Blood, but if you enjoyed that, you'll DEFINITELY love Dark Waters. Lots of good stuff about magic.
The writing is so vividly descriptive and the pacing is phenomenal. It made me wish I'd been listening to audiobooks for much longer than I have!!! Great job, Rain! This is definitely film quality work. Very well done.

This is the first time I've ever read anything by this author, and I am very impressed! Her storytelling lies somewhere between Harry Potter and the Dresden Files. Since I just finished Dresden, I was looking for something similar to share on long car rides with my son. We are both looking forward to delving deeper into this series. The voice actor has a deep, basso, voiceover-type voice that adds a level of drama, and sometimes snark, that can only add to the story. I was gifted this book, by the author, in a Facebook group, and was not required to review. I was just so lucky to get a chance to "discover" this author, and I want everyone to know.
A brief synopsis: Devon is a private investigator who unintentionally gets drafted to solve a case at a school for magic, thereby discovering he has a "bit" of magic himself.
I am looking forward to more in this series!
