    Searching for her missing brother, Grace Carlyle never dreamed she would discover a secret world populated by mythological monsters - or find herself facing a sword-wielding being whose looks put mortal men to shame. But there he was, Darius en Kragin, one of a race of shape-shifting warriors bound to guard the gates of Atlantis, and kill all travelers who strayed within its borders.

    IF I WANTED PORN I WOULD GO TO AN ADULT BOOK STORE!

    I love epic fantasy. I enjoy magic and mystery.
    I got this book for that reason. I made it through the first two cd's hoping for a change; but all I'm really hearing is sex, lust, and a lot of references to the human body. Don't get me wrong. My libido is as healthy as any woman's and I'm no prude. But I didn't sign up for the x rated language or lurid details of how the main characters turn each other on when I made the decision to buy this book. It's actually "x" enough that I wouldn't want my grand kids to hear it.

    I'm not going to bother with the rest of the book.
    I couldn't be more disappointed.

    Nathaniel is eleven-years-old and a magician's apprentice, learning the traditional art of magic. All is well until he has a life-changing encounter with Simon Lovelace, a magician of unrivaled ruthlessness and ambition. When Lovelace brutally humiliates Nathaniel in public, Nathaniel decides to speed up his education, teaching himself spells far beyond his years. With revenge on his mind, he masters one of the toughest spells of all and summons Bartimaeus, a five-thousand-year-old djinni, to assist him.

    Randy says: "Terrific Trilogy"
    "Very much enjoyed"
    Overall

    Even a woman of 50 such as myself will enjoy this book if
    you're one of those people who enjoy Harry Potter, Lord of the
    Rings, and books of this nature.
