A series review, rather than individual ones.
The Order of the Black Sun series, basically, harkens back to the old pulp novels of investigators/scientists vs horrifying cults/evil baddies/Nazis, with a bit of a modern twist. They are generally fun reads, a little light on scientific accuracy in places, featuring a trio of protagonists who hail from Edinburgh: a modern historian, a Pulitzer winning reporter and a millionaire/billionaire (the books can't quite keep it straight which is the case) tech inventor.
Now the bad part: American narrators, yes, plural, across the series.
Any Brit listening to these is going to be constantly on edge waiting for the horrendous mispronunciations and accents. Some examples:
The narrator of the first two stories kept on referring to MI6 as M16.
The accents of the three protagonists jump about, at first I thought the reporter was meant to be Irish but when their abode was confirmed I realised he was meant to be Scots, but its strength comes and goes across the series; the other two protagonists have zero Scots accents, the historian can kind of be explained as she spent time in other universities, but the inventor often ends up sounding like a brash American businessman.
Place names, oh god, after 13 books I think I've only heard Edinburgh correctly pronounced once, but I suspect it was an accident on the part of the narrator; mostly it's a mix of Edinborough, Edinbruh (yes, the "r" before the "u"), and Edinburg (hard "g"). Then there's the one book that's predominantly set in Lyon, except, for the first two thirds of the book, where the narrator calls it Lion, even when being pronounced by a French taxi driver; I can only presume someone with a bit of knowledge walked in and asked why they kept talking about lions...
Despite all this, however, they are fun and should be enjoyed in a light-hearted manner.
