When an overworked team of government physicists unwittingly invites something catastrophic into the world, rising young New York lawyer Cal Griffin is forced into a strange new role in a world of nightmare and wonder. A spinster schoolteacher, a lonely miner, a refugee doctor, a visionary street person, and a brooding Secret Service agent all share a staggering responsibility with the young attorney to make sense of the surreal chaos and to follow an awesome destiny, for they are to be soldiers in a titanic battle between darkness and light. And its raging hell fires will affect the most astonishing transformation of all, turning a young man of pure heart into that rarest of creatures: a hero. More

Surprisingly disappointing

I have been a great fan of Barbara Hambly in the past so I was looking forward to listening to this book. Sadly I found it confusing, fragmented and really rather derivative in the end.
Armin Shimmerman is an excellent actor, but I found his reading of this book really poor, and his accent grated rather. Each time he did a different character he used a strong southern accent which was not only rather odd, but made telling the difference between the large number of seeming unrelated characters even more difficult.
I wasn't able to finish this book, which was a great pity as some parts (like the spectral bison at the start) were really interesting.
