    The ultimate secret. The ultimate agent. The President's vampire. Zach Barrows is an ambitious young White House staffer whose career takes an unexpected turn when he's partnered with Nathaniel Cade, a secret agent sworn to protect the President. But Cade is no ordinary civil servant.

    Overall

    I was pleasantly surprised by how good this book was, although some of the side characters grated on my nerves. The action was well done and not frivolously bloody, and the main character is interesting.
    I hope that if there is another book, the author will flesh out the characters more and give a little more subtlety to the characters.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Story

    Warning! This is a ROMANCE story, whatever mystery or plot you may be looking for is secondary to a insipid, pathetic, ROMANCE.

    The beginning begins well enough, with the characters intelligently depicted with interesting personalities in a detailed setting. But then, it just degenerates into some fantasy vacation scenerio. I just had to stop listening after chapter 22.

    Its a well written book, and the narrator is great, but unless you like ROMANCE don't bother.

    If you could sum up Saints Astray in three words, what would they be?

    Boring, Lazy, and Predictable


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jacqueline Carey again?

    No


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Susan Ericksen is a great reader. I would have otherwise just put the book down halfway through, but because of her great voice, I at least listened to it as background noise while doing other things.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I never thought Jacqueline Carey was a great writer, but Santa Olivia was pretty good, and it should have ended with that story. Sadly this is another case of an authur trying to milk to death one decent idea.

    Gerald Dunwoody is a wizard. Just not a particularly good one. He's blown up a factory, lost his job, and there's a chance that he's not really a Third Grade wizard after all. So it's off to New Ottosland to be the new Court Wizard for King Lional. It's a shame that King Lional isn't the vain, self-centered young man he appeared to be. With a princess in danger, a talking bird who can't stay out of trouble, and a kingdom to save, Gerald soon suspects that he might be out of his depth.

    John Williams says: "A good start to a new series"
    "Wow, this is really bad."
    Overall

    It started off well enough, and the main character seems interesting at first, but then all the insipid dialog becomes a bit to much. One dimensional characters, a pansy villain, way to much dialog and not enough action... it all adds up into a really bad book. Perhaps it might get better later on but I am not wasting my time trying to finish it.
