Annette Marie (and now Rob Jacobsen) is/are proving adept at building intriguing characters, book by book, layer by layer. Rather than rushing to throw out a myriad of troubles in a single book to cheaply hold reader interest like some authors do ("Climax! Another climax! And yet another climax!"), they allow suspense to build with hints and teasing glimpses. Watching Kit slowly evolve is tremendously entertaining.
Side note: As a reader, I prefer reading print for my fiction and absorbing non-fiction through a dual combo of audio with a print version beside me to highlight notes. That being said, audio books are safer when driving so I've now listened to several audio versions of the Codex series' and I have to say - the "Warped" series gains something through the audio version.
I'm unsure if it's the voice actor himself that adds the additional dimension of humor or if hearing the tone/inflection in the reading just brought it out more for me; either way, I may have quietly smiled at a couple jokes in the book but I laughed aloud at hearing those same jokes in the audio versions. I'll likely just go straight to audio for the third in the series.
