My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Narration: Was very good and enjoyable.
Story: An interesting take on the celestial war (angels vs demons) that weaves in a few parts of near east mythology. The basic plot starts with a powerful demonic spell going awry that sets up a traditional fugitive trope. The world building includes a multi-dimensional/world aspect that roughly seems to line up with heaven, earth and hell. Stir in a pinch of techno-magic and power stones (aka crystals) and it starts to resemble a familiar superhero story (with more personal drama that I care for). perhaps the biggest issue I have would be how it uses the soul; I can't figure out if it is really anything other that a plot device since it doesn't seem to do anything other than identify what world you are aligned to (it certainly doesn't seem to effect any concept of self). That said, in the end, nothing really stands out; it was a good story that was light enough to be fun with characters that appeared fairly simple and predictable. I think the narration from the audiobook does make it more entertaining and enjoyable, but if you have Kindle unlimited, you pick it up there too.
