When the miserable excuse of a human, William Catch, brought a bound and gagged girl named Lucy Harker to the headquarters of Sara Faulk’s group called “The Oversight” with the intention of selling her, Sara could’ve never imagined this girl would be the key to either their resurrection or their defeat. It’s up to Sara, Lucy, Mr. Sharp, Cook, and the others to help find out Lucy’s connection to the once great policing agency that protected both the natural and supernatural and fight the darkness oozing out of the shadows hell-bent on wiping out the agency completely and permanently.

This is an addictive audio, narrated by Simon Prebble. The story is deep and complex --sometimes hard to follow if there are any distractions to break the listener’s concentration. Fortunately, it’s so mesmerizing it’d take quite a feat to distract anyone from the history, lore, and intense action being brought to life. It’s the kind of story that will appeal to a wide range of readers, from lovers of Victorian mysteries to the fans of twisted and thrilling fantasy. I recommend it to anyone looking for an exciting listen.
