    Everyone knows the story-how Arthur pulled the sword from the stone, how Camelot came to be, and about the power struggles that ultimately destroyed Arthur's dreams. But what of the time before Arthur and the forces that created him?

    Story
    What did you like best about The Skystone? What did you like least?

    I could only complete half of the book. While I liked the story, I could not listen to this narrator any further.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked the historical aspect as I have not seen anyone write about this time period of British history before.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I have listened to many, many books since I joined Audible and I knew I would run across a book that I wanted to like, but whose narration would prevent it. This is that book. The narrator's timing is choppy at best, just plain off at worst. He seems to be trying so hard to enunciate each word that, to me, it sounds as if an elementary school child is giving a speech. I tried to continue, hoping that perhaps I could get used to the rhythm and cadence but I just could not. If I want to continue this series I'll have to read it. I can not listen to this narrator any further.


    Was The Skystone worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    Adam says: "Authenticity, Humor and Brilliant Writing"

    Story
    What did you love best about Hexed?

    I loved this writer's style. The banter between characters (especially his dog) is Laugh Out Loud funny. In addition he portrays the druidic faith quite accurately (for a work of fiction).


    What did you like best about this story?

    Too hard to pin down what I liked


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Luke gives each character it's own voice....especially the dog. I would have never


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

    Hexed - What witches do. Vexed - What a very old Druid becomes. Perplexed - What the rest of us experiences.
