I liked the first book so much that I got this straight away and binge listened. The team are still investigating inexplicable crime and trying to understand how they can fight it. We learn more about each character and what motivates them. They aren't always particularly sympathetic but that's fine too. I really liked the idea of this book's main villain; their motivations and actions are only too believable.
There's a major cameo from a real person. I hadn't been spoiled by knowledge of it and at first the person is just described and I just thought it was just going to be one for the fans but then they take a bigger and utterly unexpected role. I'm glad I didn't know in advance as it certainly added to my pleasure in the book.
Usual caveat - this is the second book in a series. Read the first one first as that is how book series work best (except for Narnia obviously)
Damian Lynch continues to be excellent.

Where does The Severed Streets rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It is a good book and if you like mystery and super-natural, this is a book for you. I am a fan of Monster Hunter International, Iron Druid and the like. This was a great surprise it was dark and kept me engaged. Plus I love the English accents.
What did you like best about this story?
The character building and the development of the story. And I hate to say the Cat was funny in a creepy way
Which scene was your favorite?
Didn't have one. the story couldn't be broken like that. you need it all to enjoy it.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The moment when they all excepted what they had and are gonna be.
Any additional comments?
It is a book that surprised me and I wouldn't have pickled it up if some of my other series was available. Can't wait to get into the next book.

I really enjoyed this. The reader was good - my only gripe (as with London Falling) Is that while he has a good voice for it and he does a nice job with accents, he does not change tone or pitch for different characters. in an audio book with five main characters this sometimes makes me briefly lose track of who is speaking. Not that I want the narrator changed, or that this will keep me from reading the next book (which I just bought with a credit on Audible).
