I really enjoyed this listen. The narrator was perfect for this quirky action/adventure mm romance. He is the same narrator from Foxe Tails and this listen had a lot of the same elements. The basic story is a 5000 year old Egyptian king is cursed by one of the Egyptians gods. Our hero Logan inadvertently frees him and love and adventure ensues. There is a lot of witty humor as Seti adjusts to the 21st century. The dialogue among the gods is pretty funny too. There is a merry Scooby gang which tries to help the couple when they are pursued by the “evil” scientist. I only have two minor nits. First, it wasn’t long enough and thus felt a little rushed in the story; not enough to take away the enjoyment, but there is not a lot of character building. Second, a minor character dies and I don’t understand why that was necessary as it really didn’t bring much to the story except make me sad. I think it was used as a plot device to incite the other characters to act, but I didn’t like it. Other than that, worth a credit as a unique, fun listen.
This was a really amazing read. It is a funny witty romance/murder mystery. It has a great cast of characters, with Skylar Fox as the main protagonist. He has a BFF that is a Jewish female cop, and a gang of ex-hook up boyfriends who decided being friends with Fox was better than hooking up. There is a budding romance that is not fully realized in this book, but I believe will be prominent in sequels. There is a murder that Fox becomes involved in and he does some really stupid stuff that kind of stretches the boundaries of believability. But he is charming and engaging enough that it really doesn't matter. I look forward to the next installment. It has great dialogue; that is what I loved the most. There is a lot of bantering between the characters, but there is a darker aspect of the story as well. The narrator is just off the charts fantastic; a true vocal actor. He really brings all these characters to life.
This was really a pleasure to listen to. It is one of those stories where you have a smile on your face most of the time you are listening to their story. The narrator did a wonderful job of bringing Walter and Kelly to life. This is a very sweet story that is a little darker than you expect. It starts off as the openly gay college playboy meets the super shy, gay freshman that has massive allergies and loves Disney movies. The slow build up and angst of their romance is just right. We learn that even though Walter appears in control, he has demons to fight, a la his messed up family life. And although Kelly's Disney princess view of the world seems unrealistic, he has some steel in his spine when it comes to Walter. No real drama, just a sweet story. Definitely worth a credit.
