  • "Alysha's Gran is still lurking."

    Story

    This is the second book in what I hope will be a lengthy series. The plot in this book follows Charlie, who was a lesser character in "The Enchantment Emporium." I really like the idea that she works much of her magic through her music. The other character who takes a step forward in this book is Jack. I really liked him in "Enchantment" so I was glad to see him get more time onstage in this story. Many of the other characters from the previous book are back again too. The Aunties are busy making pies and annoying phone calls again. Even the magic mirror is back, handing out its usual enigmatic hints. And Alysha's Gran is once again lurking in the background, trying to manipulate everyone (for their own good, of course).

    I'm happy to say that I liked Erin Moon's narration better than the narrator for "Enchantment". She made no attempt at Irish or Chinese accents, but she did a much better job with everything else.

    If you like urban fantasy, I think you'll enjoy this one. A lot.

    Story

    This is a great book. I've been wishing for a long time that Audible would get it. I've read it over and over again through the years, and I'm happy to say that now I'll be able to listen to it over and over again because Bronson Pinchot does a wonderful job with the characters' voices.

    I'm not sure that this is really a fantasy. It has swords and seems to have sorcery, but the magic gets explained in such a way that it seems to (almost) be advanced science. But it has the feel of fantasy. If Heinlein wrote this book today, the publisher would have insisted on a 20-book series, and I truly think our hero Oscar Gordon could have provided it to us.

    Heinlein was born more than a hundred years ago, and attitudes toward male/female relations were different then. But just as we do not hold Shakespeare or Homer to 21st Century societal norms, so we must give Heinlein a pass here as well. He was trying.

    I think that any young man who likes science fiction or fantasy will like this adventure story. And I think that women who can release their grip on modern feminism for the space of a few hours will like it as well.

    Get this book.

One ad in particular leapt out at him: "Are you a coward? This is not for you. We badly need a brave man. He must be 23 to 25 years old, in perfect health, at least six feet tall, weigh about 190 pounds, fluent English with some French, proficient with all weapons, some knowledge of engineering and mathematics essential...."

    Story

    Robin McKinley's protagonists are usually young women. In this book the main character is a teenage boy. That boy is telling his story in the first person, and it is a story which he finds hard to tell. So in the beginning the story seems rough, clumsily written. This is not a sign that Robin McKinley is a poor writer. It's an indicator that she is a masterful writer, and she is telling the story not in her own voice, but in the voice of that inexperienced young man.

    And it is a wonderful story.

    In much science fiction and fantasy, the aliens or talking creatures simply seem like humans in funny looking costumes. But the dragons in this story truly seem alien in their being. Their thoughts and attitudes are not human. Their point of view is not human. And they don't find it any easier to understand humans than humans can understand them.

    If you have read her most popular books (The Hero and the Crown, The Blue Sword, Beauty, etc.), please don't go into this one expecting more of the same or you may be disappointed. This book is fairly different from most of her books. It needs to be taken on its own. But if you can leave all your preconceptions at the door, I think you will find this a story well worth reading.

    A word about the narrator. I think his voice fits the main character admirably. He did a good job.

    I listened to this book from star to finish, I just couldn't bear to stop listening. It was fun, interesting, well written and performed, action-packed with wonderful characters. Wayne Farrell did an outstanding job bringing the characters to life, I laughed, cried and even had a gasp or two. J.Kent Holloway sure knows how to grab a readers attention and he doesn't let go until the final word. Everyone should give his books a shot, I can pretty much guarantee you'll enjoy it.

    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Bray does a fantastic job, at some points it was quite freaky and that just made it even more enjoyable. I utilised the whispersync for voice for the first time with this book and you really notice the difference between reading and listening.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was interesting, fun and at times a little freaky. Which let's face it, is what Jeremy Robinson does best. I didn't really know what to expect from this book but having heard a lot of positive things about it thought it was high time I gave it a go. I can see why the book got so many positive comments and why so many people consider it to be one of Robinson's best work to date. It really grabs your attention and doesn't let go until the final page.

    Excellent writing, really captures the readers attention and imagination. Solomon is a strong character who you feel for and want him to succeed. I am looking forward to the next one. I think this series is probably one of the most character driven series Robinson has written. R.C.Bray did such an amazing job with the narration, if I hadn't known from the start that he was narrating I wouldn't have believed it, it is that good.

  • "Absolutely Brilliant Fantasy!"

    6 of 6 helpful votes

    Listening to this book is the most fun I've had in a long, long time! I was a little worried when it started out with two 19 year old school girls at an academy, but it quickly veered off from there and took on a very different aspect. To say I was up all night listening is not, I repeat, NOT an exaggeration!

    There are great reviews at Amazon that give the gist of the plot, but I don't want to spoil a second of this book. If you love fantasy you will love this.

    The best part is the rest of the trilogy is already written (and I'm assuming being prepared for audio right now), and a sequel set of books is already available on Amazon, so, yippee!

    I'm now a fan of Kate Elliott's. A big one.

    P.S. I'm not a big fan of YA (with very, very few exceptions), but I had been assured by the reviews at Amazon that this was not YA -- but even if it is, it's still the best book I've listened to this year!

    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    For reasons that remain recondite, the second issue of The Octopus was retitled The Scorpion. And the sinister supervillain was renamed. Otherwise, the magazine was a direct continuation of the previous incarnation, with the new leader of the Purple Eyes Cult attempting to force New York to knuckle under his iron rule through terror and intimidation. Only the Skull Killer could stand up to him.
