Narrator Max Bellmore rides herd on Showalter’s epic paranormal romance to excellent effect. He clearly portrays Showalter’s huge cast of immortals, each with individually crafted personas, while simultaneously building sympathy for Kane and Josephina’s star-crossed romance. In particular, he captures Kane’s frustration as he tries to free Josephina from Fae enslavement. Listeners experience firsthand the perils of Josephina’s life in the Fae realm through the indifferent or downright nasty tones Bellmore gives to them. Segmenting an extended plot into meaningful episodes, he alternates moments of high drama with well-inflected description. His commanding voice reflects the mood of Showalter’s action-packed story, filled with both fight scenes and Kane and Josephina’s stolen intimate moments. Bellmore ensures that Showalter’s immortal-length saga doesn't drag for its mortal listeners. C.A.
