    Inhaltsangabe

    When the gods come calling, you don’t get to say no.

    Patrick Collins is three years into a career as a special agent for the Supernatural Operations Agency when the gods come calling to collect a soul debt he owes them. An immortal has gone missing in New York City and bodies are showing up in the wake of demon-led ritual killings that Patrick recognizes all too easily from his nightmares.

    Unable to walk away, Patrick finds himself once again facing off against mercenary magic users belonging to the Dominion Sect. Standing his ground alone has never been a winning option in Patrick’s experience, but it’s been years since he’s had a partner he could trust.

    Looking for allies in all the wrong places, Patrick discovers the Dominion Sect’s next target is the same werewolf the Fates themselves have thrown into his path. Patrick has been inexplicably attracted to the man from their first meeting, but desire has no place in war. That doesn’t stop Patrick from wanting what he shouldn’t have. Jonothon de Vere is gorgeous, dangerous, and nothing but trouble - to the case, to the fight against every hell, and ultimately, to Patrick’s heart and soul.

    In the end, all debts must be paid, and Patrick can only do what he does best - cheat death.

    Fun!

    An interesting take on magic. The world building reminded me a bit of the Iron Druid Chronicles, but it's much more than that. The whole soul wound business promises to be very exciting indeed, as well as the the twist on soulmates.
    I liked both Jono and Patrick a lot, plus the side characters are all people and have a bit of a journey to go through. There's hints of character development there.
    The narrator does an AMAZING job on Jono's accent, but some of the characters other than Patrick fall a bit flat. I didn't think it was too bad. The steamier scenes could have profited from a less clinical approach, but that's just my opinion.
    All in all I'm looking forward to book 2 of the series!

    ...

    Ich finde die Geschichte hat durchaus Potential, leider ist sie partiell seeehr langatmig. Und wenn ich bedenke wie ausführlich manch unnötiges Detail beschrieben wird, finde ich es umso bedauerlicher, wie wenig Raum die Beziehung der Hauptcharakter im Gegensatz dazu einnimmt.

    Zum Sprecher: Hier bin ich ebenfalls etwas ambivalent. An manchen Stellen kann ich mir keine bessere Stimme vorstellen, aber an anderer Stelle (möglicherweise bei den laaangen Details) klingt es ziemlich monoton. Das hat es mir teilweise wirklich schwer gemacht, die Konzentration bei der Story zu halten.

    Aufregend spannend und Leidenschaftlich

    Dieses Buch hat mich direkt mit seiner intensiven Story abgeholt. Die mitreißenden Szenen und die wunderschön beschriebenen Interaktionen sind wundervoll.
    Der Sprecher hat eine angenehm warme Stimme und hat die richtige Energie beim Lesen.
    Ich kann das Buch allen empfehlen, die eine intensive Romanze erleben möchten in einer Parallelwelt, in der alle Legenden wahr sind.

    Jono is great, but the rest...

    I bought this audio book because I've read that Jon's voice and accent were done well, and that is absolutely true!
    I was pretty much looking forward to his next line all the time. Which is not a good thing because the reason was only partly the great accent.
    Almost every line other than dialogue was very monotone. Even in the sample, it is obvious that most of the lines have the same inflection.
    Because of the good reviews and my curiosity of Jono's accent, I bought the audio book nevertheless, and was disappointed that it can't compete with my favorites.

    But perhaps Chris Patton and Sean Bean are simply too high a bar.

    Loved it!

    The Balance between an interesting Wold and a good Love Story is perfect. I was invested from start to finish. The characters are very likeable and I wanted to know more about them.
