    Would you listen to Speaks the Nightbird again? Why?

    There's no way I'd listen to it again...Ballerini does an adequate job with the voicing and accents, but his delivery is dreadfully slow and exceptionally inconsistent in its volume.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Solid mystery with interesting historical context.


    What three words best describe Edoardo Ballerini’s voice?

    Quiet, slow, dynamic


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You can't hang evil.


    Any additional comments?

    I finished the story in book format, as I simply couldn't wait any longer.

    Venice, a really long time ago: Three prominent Venetians await their most loathsome and foul dinner guest, the erstwhile envoy from Britain who also happens to be a favorite of the Doge: The rascal-Fool Pocket. This trio of cunning plotters have lured Pocket to a dark dungeon, promising a spirited evening. Their invitation is, of course, bogus. These scoundrels have something far less amusing planned for the man who has consistently foiled their quest for power and wealth. But this Fool is no fool.…

    What did you love best about The Serpent of Venice?

    The story is witty. Clever even.

    But the narrator...goodness me. He's an absolute rockstar. Hysterical. I have never been more impressed by the delivery, variation and general entertainment of a narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The very, very clever writing is nonstop hilarity.


    Which character – as performed by Euan Morton – was your favorite?

    Definitely Pocket.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Would you listen to Tricked again? Why?

    Great story, flawless performance...why not?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tricked?

    After the skin walkers are finally toast, the moment Atticus spent with Frank...truly awesome.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    His cadence, inflection, pronunciation...this guy owns the character. He is Atticus. Without question, Luke Daniels is the best reader on Audible. He's PERFECT for this character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You don't get to be 3,000 years old by accident.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone will love this audiobook. It's a guarantee; whether you love fantasy or not, you'll love this audiobook.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hounded to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but given how excellent the performance was, I can't imagine it being better.


    What other book might you compare Hounded to and why?

    Dresden Chronicles - as it's fantasy that's set in modern times.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not that I know of.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh, and it was gripping. Beautiful delivery of a magnificent tale.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a winner. It might be the best audiobook I've heard.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    McCullough has a fantastic voice, and his delivery is brilliant. There's no way the print version is as good as this.

    John Adams
