I am back again and I had a better time this go around. Still a 1890s gay romance, supernatural horror, lovecraftian story. This time the listening was a lot easier, two days instead of two weeks. I am not sure if I was in a better mood, or maybe Jordan’s universe just clicked into place easier this time.
This review won’t be as long. This time we see more of Griffon’s backstory. Get to meet an important person to him, and learn more about his childhood. Of course the story is still about Whyborne, so don’t worry there are plenty of awkward moments and explicit sex.
Once again, the only negative I had was the narrator didn’t stay in his lane. This time it wasn’t an Irish accent (except, maybe there was a sentence or so when the characters were joking, but quick and pretty painless). This time is was “professional” women. It wasn’t as cringeworthy as the Irish accent, but still enough to make me wince.
However, I wanted to note that the narrator does absolutely fine with Christine, so not sure why the difference.
As a follow up to Christine, she proves to be even more of a badass in a couple of moments then initially suspected. Already I would love a few books of her adventures when she goes to digs. I do know there are 6 more books to read that are already out, so maybe I will get my wish.
I definitely recommend this book to everyone.
