The narrator for this story was perfectly fit. The character voices brought the feeling of dread, fear, trust and disharmony to life. The novel itself is beautifully written and when you close your eyes, you can see the Spook's world as told by the author. This is a series I read when I was a teen and now listening to it as an adult is fantastic. An absolute recommended novel and series.
