🎧 Daemon Scourge (Clash of the Demigods #2) by Stacey Brutger @TantorAudio #2022AudiobookChallenge

Hello, fellow audiobook addicts. Today, I’d like to share my thoughts about Daemon Scourge written by Stacey Brutger and narrated by Eva Wilhelm. The second audiobook in Stacey’s urban fantasy series, Clash of the Demigods.

My thanks to the publisher, Tantor Media, for the audiobook in exchange for a candid review.

A Gripping Adventure – I didn’t want to stop listening!

Stacey Brutger is a new-to-me author, however, her stories tick every box for me. An intelligent writing style that’s easy to read. ✅ Check. Protagonists with depth and credibility together with personality traits that draw me in. ✅ Check. A great wealth of characters in the supporting cast. ✅ Check. Believable background story and setting with a plot that has a balanced mix of relationship, tension, action, humour and mystery. ✅Check, ✅check and ✅check.

I’m loving this urban fantasy series more than I originally thought I would.

Our protagonist, Octavia exhibits all the personality traits that I love. She’s intelligent, resilient, self-reliant and has oodles of gumption. Her elite team of daemon mates – Warrick, Keegan, Nikos, and Atticus – are lethal warriors, each male sworn to protect Octavia and each having different characteristics, strengths and hidden insecurities. 😘 I loved reading about Octavia’s fight for survival and seeing how she dealt with the challenges that sprung to confront her.

Eva Wilhelm is a new-to-me narrator.

I really enjoy the pace at which Eva reads these stories. The emotions and inflexions she used for the different scenes feel natural and brings them to life. Eva has created different voices for our main characters which match their personalities perfectly. This also helps during the dialogue, meaning that I never feel lost during the multiple-character conversations.

Clash of the Demigods is taking me out of my comfort zone.

If Tantor Media hadn’t have sent me the first audiobook (Daemon Grudge), I never would have bought it myself. The world we’re introduced to in Clash of the Demigods has a dystopian feel. Dystopian settings depress me and rub my sensibilities up the wrong way; I don’t like stories about brutality, survival of the fittest, injustices or prejudices. I also tend to stay clear of reverse harem and polyamorous tales – multiple partners (lovers) at the same time are not my thing. However, Stacey deals with both themes in a way that I can accept and actually end up enjoying. 😉

Daemon Scourge is a fantastic audiobook, and I really loved the adventure.

It’s a great example of a character-led urban fantasy story. Plus, there’s no life-or-death perilous cliffhanger at the end! WoopWoop! I’ll be waiting with bated breath for the next and final audiobook. I need to find out how Octavia and the guys deal with the impending daemon-demigod war.
