Audiobook Review: Dusk Avenger (Flirting with Monsters, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dusk Avenger by Eva Chase

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A little pyromania can go a long way…

The Company of Light had already made my shit list before they kidnapped one of my monstrous lovers. Now? I’m ready to send the whole lot of them up in flames. Especially when it turns out they may have damaged my demon sweetheart beyond repair.

Trouble is, those flames aren’t playing nice. After its taste of freedom, my inner fire seems intent on having a full-on scorch party, and that includes burning me up while I’m burning down the baddies.

If I’m going to get a handle on the dangerous power within me, I need to understand where it—and I—came from. But finding the answers I’m searching for could be worse than staying in the dark.

My enemies are multiplying by the minute, and the worst of them… might be standing right beside me.

The heroine: Sorsha – she is getting closer to all of the men she is working with to take down “The Company”, a para-military group that is bent on torturing, killing and experimenting on shadow monsters in the hopes of taking their powers away. Sorsha still doesn‘ t know exactly what she is, but she grew up thinking she was a human and now that she has powers, she is working at getting a handle on them so she can use them to defend herself and her men.

The Heroes: Ruse, Snap, Thorn and Omen – Ruse is the incubus who is afraid of falling for Sorsha because the one time he fell for a someone, the woman only wanted him for one thing. Snap is a devourer and he recently had to use his main power and fears that it could be dangerous to Sorsha and the others. Thorn is a warrior angel and lives to fight and protect everyone working with them, especially Sorsha. Omen is a shapeshifter and is the leader of the group who has been working with Sorsha to harness her powers.

The Story: One of the guys has disappeared and the group is even more determined to take down The Company of Light. Sorsha is starting to like Omen a bit more as well. They had a very contentious relationship from the start but she recently found that he does actually care more about those in his charge than she originally thought.

I love all the characters in this series. There are many and they are all fun and the shadow creatures have some awesome powers. From the four Heroes, to the troll, the centaur shifter, unicorn shifter, basilisk, vampire, imp, and especially Sorsha’s miniature dragon named Pickle whom she freed from a collector who had clipped his wings.

This book, like the first two was told in multiple points of view and narrated by Aiden Snow and Vanessa Moyen. I enjoyed the narration and this was a great series to listen to. I really like both of their voices and that really makes a difference in an audiobook. I can’t tell you how many books I have put back on the shelf because there is only one narrator or the narrators have voices that I just can’t listen to.

I also really liked how Sorsha relayed a great summary of the previous books at the beginning of this book and it was integrated into the story very well. I personally didn’t need it because I am binging the series over a weekend. However, I know how often I don’t get to read all the books in a series at the same time and wish there would be a good summary like this one had. So many authors take for granted that the readers have a much better memory than I do and just start each book in a series without any background.
