Excellent book

James Patrick Cronin does a fantastic job narrating this whole series. It is easily the best paranormal adventure romance series available. I own all of the series and to date of my review is 20. The books have strong characters with love adventure romance and worthy villains. All types of my favourite types of paranormals are here. It is a smorgasbord of awesome. I know there are lots of books in the series and not one is a dud. They are all long enough to really give you everything you want in a book. I can't recommend them enough.

Executable

Enjoyable narrative which appears to stand alone In the series to date - but there is a link with previous characters which foreshadows future connections.
Great voice / narration for a fun & enjoyable supernatural tale.

If You Skip This - You Will Regret Your Decision

Usually when an author completely changes protagonists in the middle of a series the decision is a poor choice. Not so with this book. It's a nice change of pace.

This book explores the lives of the 2 kids that were locked in those cells at the end of book 5. There's a bit of crossover in the middle of the book when Chris comes to save his goddaughter.

The writing and story are solid as always. In fact, I'd say this book is on par with the first couple of books of the series.

DO NOT SKIP THIS BOOK BASED UPON OTHER REVIEWS

Back to High School!

I've enjoyed the previous books in this series. This one, however, was not the same at all. It follows High School students in their life, peer struggles, with some supernatural thrown in. There was, eventually, a little interaction with characters in the other books. I struggled to get through it even though I could see where it would intersect with the story line, but, I was very disappointed overall. I hope the next book goes back to the main plot and people.

Just too much to overlook - had to turn it off

Even with the understanding that the audience for this is probably "tween", there are only so many times a reader/listener can realistically be expected to ignore an obvious plot hole or character personality-lapse just for the (lazy) convenience of pushing a plot beyond a natural point of termination. The whole thing started to feel so contrived. It is rare that I turn off a book (especially this far into a series).
Adding to that is the bad performance by James Patrick Cronin (in the series). He ends many dialogue lines (especially for the protagonist) with an octave increase as if it were a question - making the characters seem either dumb or confused. There is a big difference in a scene where a character is supposed to be coming across as a force-to-be-reckoned-with making a statement like, " I am," versus how it is performed like, "I am?". Because this is an audio book it adds to the confusion when the author ends a sentence with "..he said", but it is performed as a question - leaving me wondering if the dialogue ended with a period or a question mark (and should, therefore, have been "..he asked"), or if it is the performance that got it wrong.

I hope this stops.

What would have made Executable better?

I may be in a minority but I do not like shifts in focus like this. I skipped 4.5 for this very reason. I enjoy how Chris handles each situation and his relationship with Tanya.

Any additional comments?

If you want to learn more about supporting characters or periphery then read 4.5 and this book. If you just want to continue Chris's story move on to the next book.

Great so far

I was a little confused with this book, I don't know why I thought this was about Chris for at least a quarter of the way through the book. It was entertaining but it wasn't matching up with what I knew.

I should have read some of the comments before starting this book so I could put it into context. So yah! This is about Declan and Caeco which were the two kids Chris saved in the last book during Toni's rescue.

You could see a LOT of parallels between Declan and Chris, both were trying to hide themselves stay out of the spot light, both extremely powerful. Not on Chris's level yet but still lots of potential.

Very entertaining.

I enjoyed this story, but...

I prefer a straight story, so this segue into a different story was not appreciated, at the time. However, as I got into the story, I enjoyed it, especially the ending.

Not sure why the author decided to go this way, maybe he lost some ideas. One thing I didn't care for was the author starting to place more emphasis on sex. Adds nothing to the story.

The narrator wasn't as good changing his voice between Chris and Declan!

Gets better...

The beginning of the book is slow and, sorry to say, I found it irritating. I never really enjoy high school life in books. I honestly would rate that part 3 stars at most. I had a hard time getting through it. Fortunately from the middle on it is much better. I'd rate it 4 stars from that point. I wrestled with what to rate it and I guess. It is enough improved at the end to push it up to 4 stars overall. I liked it as an addition to the series. Declan is a good character, and some of the other teens also were worth reading. Others not so much. I was very glad when Chris and Tanya returned. Tony was a breath of fresh air, and Awasos! So, wrapping it up, definitely recommend reading this. In fact the series up to this point is recommended.

A great spinoff!

What made the experience of listening to Executable the most enjoyable?

Same universe, but different characters. I like the overlap and the fresh perspective that this book gives of the world, but it still feels like the other novels.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Declan was the kind of character that I can relate to. He is a total techie.

What about James Patrick Cronin’s performance did you like?

Sometimes I had to remind myself that it is a dude who is narrating the Irish girls' accents.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I got the "Marathoner" badge on this book because every few minutes game me a question that I needed answered.

Any additional comments?

It was great the second time through as well!

Dreadful Irish accents

I love this series. Unfortunately this book is oversupplied with that dubious Irish accent that only Americans seem to use. At one stage the 19 year old Galway girl's accent seem to drift towards England and London. Kind of ruined for me. Since I'm actually Irish that crappy pseudo accent always annoys me.

What accent is that meant to be?

having read the books in the Demon Accord series, I was wary of how the narrator would do. previous books in the series were OK but boy did he come a cropper in this one! Some of the characters are Irish but the accent - at points - flips over to pure Essex (for those not familiar with UK regional 'dialects', think of it as a poor man's cockney). When the narrator did this for the first time, I choked on my coffee it was that jarring.

Okay once it gets going but not half as smoothly written or read as the rest of the series

It takes a lot of work to get going. Plus its a bit of a surprise that it isn't an obvious follow on. Could have used a paragraph to orientate it within the series for the reader. I looked up to confirm it really was part of the series before persevering. I was thinking, 'Where are the usual characters?' You do reach them eventually. Feels like the start of a teen off shoot series. On a side, I hated the narrator's Irish accents, painful, and as for the young Irish girl who slips from Irish to cockney on a whim - made me shudder.
But it was okay.

Loved this series

Loved this series. Its even better how the narrator gives a voice to each character and you really feel all emotions from his voices, joy, sadness, humor, this has lead me to by the rest of this series and lots more books the narrator does.

Good story, but patronising towards the Irish

The story is pretty good, but the Irish characters speak in a dialogue last seen in 1970s clichéd American Irish cop dramas. Only falling a little short of shouting "Begorrah!".

The narrator also has some issues with the Irish accent, ranging from a phoney American Oirish accent to something so god awful it verges on Dick Van Dykes fake Cockney accent in Mary Poppins. Cockney is a London East End dialect, so has no relation to Irish.

Overall, these things work to distract from what is otherwise an enjoyable enough introduction to some new characters.

Cockney isn't Irish!

Why did the accent for the 4 Irish sisters keep drifting into an awful Dick Van Dyke mockney accent? I don't think you can be more offensive to Irish people if you tried.

Can be skipped, side-storyish

So it isn't really about the main characters from the story but rather a background story of the boy and the girl in the last books prison. It's funny and does flesh out the Witches part of the world with gather dark backgrounds.

Appalling accents

Like other reviewers, I love this series but it was very difficult to tolerate the (allegedly) Irish accents in this one. I’m not a huge fan of American narrators, especially female ones, but have found J P Cronin easy on the ear…until now. The Irish characters sound like a combination of Irish, English, American and Scottish. Aunt Aisling reminds me of Mrs Doubtfire and I didn’t like his/her Scottish approximations either! The story is good and introduces new characters for future stories. On to the next one!

Love the series- hopefully no more Irish characters

Loved all the books so far and the performance to date but, sorry, I really hope the Irish characters are limited in future stories. Lovely people with a lovely accent which is massacred here.

But, didn't you just write yourself into a corner?

There was no possible way to continue the series after the previous book's ending. Absolutely none. Zero. Yet, here are my five stars, only because I'm not allowed to give more.
