    At exactly 7:30 p.m., Walter Pettibone arrived home to over 100 friends and family shouting, "surprise!" It was his birthday. Although he had known about the planned event for weeks, the real surprise was yet to come. At 8:45 p.m., a woman with emerald eyes and red hair handed him a glass of champagne. One sip of birthday bubbly, and he was dead.

    Overall

    I love the series and find J.D. Robb's vision of the future both fun and interesting. I was a little disappointed in the fact the narrator changed many of the voices in these last two books but in particular Peabody's. I agree with the last comment that it is difficult to differentiate between the female voices.

    One of the things I enjoy the most is the relationship between Dallas and Summerset. It's both agitating and heartwarming and easy to see how much these two have in common in their love for one man, Roarke. Love the series!

    He's not just any thief. He’s the greatest thief of the age - and he’s also a wizard. And with the help of his partners - a swordsman with the most powerful magic sword in the world but no magical ability of his own, and a demonseed who can step through shadows and punch through walls - he’s going to put his plan into effect. The first step is to increase the size of the bounty on his head, so he’ll need to steal some big things. But he’ll start with somethingsmall. Something like a king....

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Spirit Thief?

    When Miranda stood up to the Ancient wizard at her own peril


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    What's not to like about Luke Daniels! He really brings the characters to life.


    Any additional comments?

    While I love the coolness of Eli's character my favorite is Gin.

    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.

    Would you listen to Hexed again? Why?

    I would listen to Hexed again in fact I'd listen to the entire series all over again. The story telling is fascinating especially since I am not familiar with Celtic mythology and I was drawn to the history of it. Most of all there was a great deal of humor and I found myself laughing out loud a lot.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oberron. I love dogs and hearing Kevin Hearne's interpretation of what dogs think through his conversations with Atticus kept me in stitches.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Atticus by far.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Perry was killed.

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Mike Naka says: "jack bauer + spawn = sandman slim"
    "Humorous and intriguing"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the entertainment of listening to this story unfold and have already downloaded the next book. I think I recalled another viewer comparing this to Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series, but I would add that it's more like the later releases of the Dresden files, pumped up a little. Either way, if you liked Harry Dresden, you can't help but enjoy Sandman Slim.
