    Orb is four years old when she first hears the wonderful music of the morning. Gifted with a magic that makes her songs irresistible anytime she sings, she spends her life seeking the source of the mystical music. Orb finally feels she's getting somewhere when she hooks up with the Livin' Sludge, a rock band that could use all the magic they can find. Unfortunately, there's still the pesky little matter of a prophecy to deal with - the prediction that Orb will someday marry Evil, the devil himself.

    "The narrator makes my ears bleed"
    Overall

    I'm only on chapter 2, but I was driving down the road and jumped at one point because her voice made my ears hurt. Her sprite and hemadriad voices are just horrible. I think my dogs head tilted as she hit a volume level that only my dog could hear. While I love all things Piers Anthony, this narrator was absolutely not meant for this job.

    Aahz falls for a literal pyramid scheme, selling it stone by stone as a burial site, while claiming the coveted pointed stone top for himself. But Skeeve wants to be know why the construction site is having so many accidents - before both he and Aahz end up in the afterlife before their time....

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

    I enjoyed this like all the rest. Always liking any of them that involve both Skeeve and Aahz interacting together.


    What was most disappointing about Robert Asprin and Jody Lynn Nye ’s story?

    Really annoyed by the constant "Author's note". Wow, shameless plug much? Found it to be really annoying, especially for those of us who have been reading these books from the start.

    After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave. Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief.

    What made the experience of listening to Trapped the most enjoyable?

    After the long wait, I got to finally hear the continuing story of Atticus and Graunuele, but mostly Oberon.


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

    Oberon, Oberon, Oberon, I totally love that dog. Reminds me of my dogs, if they could talk that is. My female is all about them belly rubs.


    Any additional comments?

    "Waxing poetically" is another term for running at the mouth for 20 minutes. I found the guys story to be quite long and boring. Sorry, bad with names but when you get to this part, you'll know exactly what I mean.

    Parry's promising life as a musician and apprentice in the arts of White Magic got thrown off track by the violent death of his beloved. Led down a path of depravity by a harlot demoness, Parry has lived a long, corrupt life that may finally be coming to an end - unless he can defeat Lucifer himself at the gates of Hell and become the new Incarnation of Evil.

    Overall

    For an agnostic man, Piers sure can get into some detail about God and Satan. Somewhere during the middle I noticed a bit of "Dante's inferno". After listening to the first 5 and really disliking Satan, my opinion of him changed when you get to see things from his point of view. Oh call me a heratic, but I find myself sympathizing with this poor character. As always, very well written. Still not crazy bout the narrator although she did a better job in this one than book 5. Maybe because she did not have to do any fairy or nymph voices in this one.

    After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own.... In a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they'll need the help of some familiar demigods.

    Matthew says: "Great Book, The Narrator Was Alright"
    "Agree bout the narrator but enjoyed the book"
    Overall

    The narrator's voices were so bad that at many times I had to rewind the audio because I would totally zone out and miss a section. I cringed every time he said "Kai Ron". Although I did like Leo's voice the rest sounded exactly the same. I did enjoy Jesse Bernstein except for when he did the Pegasi voice, oh that was very irritating. Next time hire someone with vocal range. Please. All in all I love Riordan's knowledge of Greek and Roman mythology. Many a times I would have to look his story back ground up on a search engine and he was spot on. I've learned more about Greek and Roman mythology from his books than I ever learned in school.
