Annoying narrator again but good story

Usual complaints regarding narration by Tristan James...

He pronounced Malachi ‘Mala-Key’. I’ve only ever heard it pronounced ‘Mala-Kai’.
So glad the author referred to him as Mal for most of the book otherwise it would’ve been impossible to listen to.

Also there were tons of weird pluralised versions of single words used very regularly. Examples include:
Servants’ = Servantses
Parents’ = Parentses

The story was very good, I liked the characters, and the romance was believable.

The dom/ sub content that some people have an issue with, and made a point of mentioning...
I think was quite minor and was described in a way that Mal clearly respected Owen and there was nothing offensive or off-putting about it... so he likes to be bossed around in the bedroom, so what ?! I thought it was all in a bit of fun and I was not bothered by this aspect of the relationship at all.

All in all I liked this one better then Hexbreaker. But the narrator is still not my cup of tea.
Saying that I’m still going to listen to the next one. Horse shifter... yes please!

3.5 stars

Good, but missing a spark for me. I love the SPECTR series by this author but this didn’t quite match up. This book has a K.J. Charles feel to it, so if you like their books you’ll probably enjoy this too. Still enjoyed listening to this though.

Skilled writing, read aloud equally skilfully

Tristan James' voice is a good match for the urban police-procedural basis for the story - he offers a range of voices and accents (a lot of them New York-Irish) and characters are easy to distinguish. Probably more rewarding to read the series in order but this one would still make sense without.
