    What made the experience of listening to Knight of Shadows the most enjoyable?

    I have a dilema. Does one rush through each book to find out how it all ends or does one slow down & saviour the experience? I will be so sad to listen to the last book - I am saving it for a rainy day


    What did you like best about this story?

    The bringing together of various 'loose' ends & a couple of twists in the tale - Luke getting married for one!


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

    When Wil Weaton started on his first of the chronicles i was a bit disapointed because I loved Alessandro so much but I have grown to love Will's reading too & he has brought an element of humour to the reading

    Dark fantasy goes hardboiled in Book II of the hard-hitting Grimnoir Chronicles by the New York Times best-selling creator of Monster Hunter International. The Grimnoir Society’s mission is to protect people with magic, and they’ve done so—successfully and in secret—since the mysterious arrival of the Power in the 1850s, but when a magical assassin makes an attempt on the life of President Franklin Roosevelt, the crime is pinned on the Grimnoir.

    Story
    (3009)

    Only a handful of people in the world know that mankind's magic comes from a living creature, and it is a refugee from another universe. The Power showed up here in the 1850s because it was running from something. Now it is 1933, and the Power's hiding place has been discovered by a killer. It is a predator that eats magic and leaves destroyed worlds in its wake. Earth is next. Former private eye Jake Sullivan knows the score. The problem is, hardly anyone believes him.

    Would you listen to Warbound again? Why?

    I will wait a while befor I listen to this lot again - it makes anything else I have listened to recently a little insipid


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake Sullivan is the man - sort of Mike Hammer meets Vin Diesel meets Indiana Jones


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Fay was in Berlin


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

    When lady Ori made Jake a duck

    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

    Story
    What did you love best about Scoundrels: Star Wars?

    Where does one start? The story, the new characters, the voices of our most loved 'old' characters? The plot itself would be stellar without the added incentive of the old friends & scoundrels like Han Solo, Chewie & Lando. The spectacular story that leads one into the Star Wars space/time & allows one to abandon rational thinking for some good old fashioned fun.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Scoundrels: Star Wars?

    The rescue of Lando from the warehouse. The precisely detailed, hughly elaborate plan is exactly in keeping with Solo's schemes with the normal nail-biting margin for error.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Has to be Han Solo. in some of the sceens i could imagine every facial expression. Bink - what a gal! and Chewie is his normal inimitable self.


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

    Star Wars Soundrels - the rag-tag reunion


    Any additional comments?

    Cannot wait for more. I believe that this 'book' would not have been half as exciting in print. I received this as a gift which makes it doubly special.
