Ren Lewis, who has faced every danger known to man, is about to meet a challenge he's convinced has the power to undo him. When he discovers that his daughter, Adelaide, has been hiding a pregnancy he goes into hiding himself. Having a daughter was one catastrophe he struggled with. But now, being expected to welcome her baby into his home is not something Ren knows how to assimilate into his life. With a new ferocity he throws himself into his work in order to avoid family responsibility.
And there's enough work to keep him occupied with Vivian Bishop trying to infiltrate American homes, intent on controlling and manipulating their residents. Ren soon realizes that Vivian is his perfect enemy. She's strategic, brilliant, and stunningly beautiful.
In this third and final installment, the monster in Ren will have to do the unspeakable. He will have to evolve. Nothing in his life can be approached employing any of the strategies he's used before. The evolution of Ren might be his undoing, but it might also be the one thing that brings him real happiness.

This was the final installment in Sarah Noffke’s Ren series about my favorite sarcastic and obstinate British anti-hero. There will be spoilers if you have not yet read, or listened to, books 1 or 2, The Man behind the Monster and God’s Little Monster, which I would highly recommend as this trilogy is brilliant entertainment (and there is a boxed set now, so all three together for one Audible credit!).
This one starts off right after God’s Little Monster and is full to the brim with emotions as Ren struggles to come to term with the fact that not only is he a father but he is about to become a grandfather. His daughter, Adelaide, is so much like Ren it would be scary if it wasn’t so hilariously funny, and then there is the monster inside the monster, a screaming baby boy, who is causing havoc with Adelaide’s emotions and is bringing out the most altruistic version of Ren we have ever seen. On the work front, Ren makes some rather unconventional decisions in order to defeat Vivian and save humanity. How his girlfriend Dahlia puts up with him I really don’t know, the woman must be a saint.
This was a bittersweet ending as it was the last part of Ren’s story and I have completely fallen in love with these characters, above all Ren. I hope there will be more of him and his family in the future. I always tell myself I am going to savor these slowly, but then I end up listening to the entire story in one go. Every time.
The narration by Tim Campbell was faultless in my opinion. Tim is Ren. He perfectly embodies Ren’s persona and lends him just the right mocking and tenacious voice to bring Ren truly to life. There were no issues with the production.
Overall, a fantastic mix of humor, action, emotions, and intrigue within a paranormal fantasy setting.
