Madeleine Maby narrates a slick urban fantasy set in New York City. The malevolent House of Shadows was defeated when Sydney brought down the corrupt powers of the Unseen World. But now someone is trying to reestablish the House and must be stopped. Maby populates the magical world with many glossy individuals, but while she keeps the plot moving briskly, she does not endow the shallowly sketched characters with emotional depth. Her portrayals are often inconsistent and difficult to distinguish, which will frustrate listeners. That said, the character of Sydney is clearly and consistently depicted; Maby gives her a fierce focus and a single-minded dedication to her task.
