Now Don must foil Lucifer’s plan to complete Trixie's fall and save her soul whilst preventing the Burned Man from breaking free from captivity and wreaking havoc on the entire world.

Not sure at first

Where does Drake rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Close to the top of this particular subgenre (urban fantasy)


What other book might you compare Drake to, and why?

Hellblazer (graphic novel)


What about Mark Meadows’s performance did you like?

All the characters were distinct and convincing


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No


Any additional comments?

I was really not sure about this at first, the main character comes across as a sleazier version (if that's possible) of John Constantine (Hellblazer) but he does mature as the story progresses and I'm hoping he becomes more likeable over the course of the next few books.

Headlong rush into trouble.
