    Accountant turned professional monster hunter, Owen Zastava Pitt, managed to stop the nefarious Old Ones' invasion plans last year, but as a result made an enemy out of one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Now an evil death cult known as the Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition wants to capture Owen in order to gain the favor of the great Old Ones.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this was a fantastic story. Great action and character interaction. It even made me laugh outloud a few times. It was a real pleasure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Plot & execution


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator is terribly slow. I actually listened to both books on 2x speed. He was quite enjoyable then. I don't think I could have listened to the books on 1x speed. That would have been a shame. I recommend these books to anyone who has the ability to speed up their player.

    No one's tried to kill Harry Dresden for almost an entire year, and his life finally seems to be calming down. For once, the future looks fairly bright. But the past casts one hell of a long shadow.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I can't give a high enough recommendation for The Dresden Files series. They are among my top 3 of all time. If you haven't read them all, I would recommend starting at the beginning, just because each story builds on what came before. They are each enjoyable on their own, however. Jim Butcher is a master storyteller who has created characters that the reader cares about. The stories are complex and fascinating and include almost nonstop action. Small Favor is no exception. The separate storylines come together cleverly and there is no shortage of new villains/antagonists along with some old ones. Everyone I have recommended this series to has absolutely loved it.
    Happy reading.

    Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This story began the continuing storyline after Return of the Jedi, and did it very well. Mr. Zahn was able to seamlessly pick up after the movies and continue an interesting and exciting storyline with characters I already loved.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Marc Thompson's narration is brilliant! He is able to capture all the characters individually in a way few narrators are able. He is a step above many that I respect and love to listen to. He's just that good.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was already in audio format before the 20th Anniversary Edition and was read by an excellent narrator. This revamp, however, is miles above anything that came before.
