Summary

When I was four years old, my inept biological parents decided they wanted to summon a demon.
They planned to summon one and control him so they could gain riches. However, they didn't realize you can't control a demon, you can only enter into an agreement with them, and so their demon was able to walk out of the summoning circle that they didn't close properly.
They intended to summon a lesser demon, what they got was Abaddon the Destroyer, the angel of the abyss, king of the plagues, and all that evil stuff.
He took me back to hell with him and handed me over to Lucifer, who trained me to be a demon hunter.
I didn't have the swing set in the back yard, the toy box in the corner full of toys, a bicycle, or skateboard. I had daggers, knives, and books that list all demons and their powers, lessons to create pentagrams, sigils and wards, instructions on sending demons back to hell and maintaining a mind link with Lucifer.
They say a second war is coming. Most call it the second coming of our Father.
My name is Kastor Blackwood. I've been chosen to prevent that war.

Familiar Urban Fantasy Premise done well

This book served as a somewhat brief, but still entertaining introduction to Kastor Blackwood and the world he encounters due to being a demon hunter who had been raised in hell from an early. The overall story was an entertaining one even if Kastor was in many ways your stereotypical urban fantasy novel lead character and I would be interested in reading more in this series, but the ending did feel like it was a little abrupt.

I found the performance from the narrator gave a suitably distinctive feel to all the main characters and his tone was clear and pleasant enough throughout the rest of his narration too.

Overall, an entertaining chapter from the life of Kastor Blackwood and I will definitely consider reading more from this author in the future.

Wanted more....

A pretty decent story and well read (although I did feel it sounded better at X1.25 speed) but I did feel it was more of an intro to explain everything and then just as the real adventure is about to begin, it ends... as it was only 3 hours or so, I would have preferred it to be longer and have had a proper conclusion to the story... looking forward to reading the rest though! :)

Revelation

Any additional comments?

The writing was OK and engaging for me. It is short enough that I would finish it in one sitting.

A Different Kind of Hell Boy

This has a great plot and great character potential, although neither of those quite grabbed me the way I wanted them to. The story line itself was quite good and the main character was quite unique. How everything played out was where I lost interest. I wanted to like the main character but his dialogue just didn’t work for me. I wanted to like Grayson but he was a stoner based off the narration and that just didn’t fit the story. I just couldn’t get into either of them and since they are the main characters it made for a tough listen.
I really wanted this story to come through as a big good versus evil story. Instead it came off as a bit of a low budget science fiction film. Since this story really setup the background and introduced the characters it really needed to be stronger in that aspect to really build excitement for the next chapter. I am glad that I listened to the story and I hope that things really come together in the next stories.
This is a quick story and only the beginning and actually ends right as the action is about to really start. Big cliff hanger so be prepared to get the next book to find out how things go.
The narrator took me a bit to get into but he did a great job with the character voices and really brought the story to life. The only voice that didn’t work was Grayson’s. The demon voices were excellent.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
