Magically ensnaring story

The book captured me within the first chapter and kept me reeled in for hours on end. i finished the book with a day and a half.

Unbelievably bad accents from the narrator.

Firstly I'll say I love the Infernal Devices (and all the Shadowhunter stories) and have read them as Kindle books. This time I thought I'd try the audio. The only reason I haven't returned this one is that I've checked ahead and the next two books have different narrators.
According to Wikipedia this narrator, while born in the US, has a British mother, but I can hardly believe it. Her British accents are truly terrible. Henry is made so plummy sounding as to be a complete parody of a Victoria gentleman, and don't even get me started on Mortmain. I'm assuming she's attempting some kind of Yorkshire accent, although it veers from vague Yorkshire to sometime Scottish to just plain odd. Honestly, for a book where the majority of the characters are English, more effort could have been made to find a suitable narrator. While I recommend this story, I do not recommend this recording.
