Narrator R.C. Bray delivers delicious doom in Skorkowsky’s series opener. For the knights of the Valducan order, holy weapons help them defeat demons on Earth. Enter Matt Hollis, a wendigo-attack survivor and wielder of the holy revolver called Damoren. Bray captures the suspicions that Matt’s arrival causes as well as the implacable resolve of the elite fighting group. As they fight to stop a demonic cult from rising, Matt and his new comrades slowly build trust. The book’s mostly male characters play to Bray’s strengths, and he uses various accents in dialogue. Exposition about the origins of weapons challenges the narrative drive, but Bray confidently guides listeners through the final battle. Bray’s distinctive voice complements Skorkowsky’s battle-hardened warriors. C.A. 2015 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2015]
