Did the audiobook have a message or theme? The theme of good vs. evil is an old one, but in this audiobook, the bad guys are readily recognizable, and we get to watch the evil topple, while cheering on the good guys as they win the day.

What did you like or dislike? I liked how the story moved forward rapidly and kept me in suspense. However, I disliked the overuse of vulgarity throughout the story. In my opinion, the vulgarity detracted from the story and hindered character development.

Would you recommend?: I would recommend this audiobook to my friends. The story is very entertaining and gives the listener a chance to cheer for the good guys, while gaining the satisfaction that the bad guys all get what is coming to them. Because the story has action, mystery, suspense and romance, both male and female listeners can enjoy the story.

Narrator’s style: The narrator Sonya Walger did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. Her English accent seems to add to the suspense and is very pleasant to the listener’s ear.

How would you grade the book? I would rate this audiobook as a B- and definitely a PG-13 due to the vulgarity and the explicit descriptions of violence.
