by Seth Skorkowsky | Read by R.C. Bray

Narrator R.C. Bray lends his expertise to this darker entry in the Valducan series, which features demon-hunting knights in New Orleans. Bray's deep voice and rich accent suit voodoo practitioner Malcolm exceptionally well. When a betrayal leads to Malcolm's possession by a werewolf demon, listeners directly experience the deepest horrors of the Valducan world. Bray's tempered reading helps assuage some of the story's gruesome scenes. As Malcolm struggles with his defilement and the loss of his holy machete, Hounancier, Order member Matt Romero (from Book 1, DAMOREN) arrives, determined to slay Malcolm and the demon within him. Tension builds steadily as the stakes increase and Bray keeps listeners on the edge of their seats. J.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2016 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
