Hillary Huber's narration rescues MacAlister's complicated demon universe, achieving excellence with self-aware humor and empathy for MacAlister's motley characters. Ronnie James, a teacher and would-be writer, struggles with OCD and a fear of germs. So she's definitely out of her comfort zone with the dragon hunter powers and urgent mission bequeathed to her by her sister. Ronnie's hilarious asides about hand sanitizer and her personal boundary issues are perfectly delivered. Huber makes believable Ronnie's relationship with fellow hunter Ian, portraying him with a gravelly voice that is sometimes determined, sometimes resigned to Ronnie's outlandish ideas. Secondary characters like Ronnie's friend Teresita and members of an obscure demonic religion are equally madcap. Huber's full-bodied rendition makes this story an "audio only" pleasure. C.A.
