    After a shootout claims the life of his partner in a condemned tenement building on Pearl Street, Detective John Tallow unwittingly stumbles across an apartment stacked high with guns. When examined, each weapon leads to a different, previously unsolved murder. Someone has been killing people for 20 years or more and storing the weapons together for some inexplicable purpose. Confronted with the sudden emergence of hundreds of unsolved homicides, Tallow soon discovers that he's walked into a veritable deal with the devil.

    Would you try another book from Warren Ellis and/or Reg E. Cathey?

    The book started out amazingly.Great hook, some tragedy. Solid character building. The second act brought in some wonderful supporting characters and plot twists that only dragged you deeper into the story. The third act took all of that and chucked it in the bin leaving you with a rehashed and somewhat cliched police procedural. Such a let down from an amazing build up. I can not recommend this book because of that third act.

    Tavi of Calderon, now recognized as Princeps Gaius Octavian and heir to the crown, has achieved a fragile alliance with Alera's oldest foes, the savage Canim. But when Tavi and his legions guide the Canim safely to their lands, his worst fears are realized. The dreaded Vord - the enemy of Aleran and Cane alike - have spent the last three years laying waste to the Canim homeland. And when the Alerans are cut off from their ships, they find themselves with no choice but to fight shoulder to shoulder if they are to survive.

    Christopher says: "Great Book. Fantastic Narrator. Engrossing Series."

    Would you listen to Princeps' Fury again? Why?

    Yes. The story is wonderful, as is the performance.


    Did Kate Reading do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Ms. Reading did wonderfully as always. Each character was easily recognizable.


    Any additional comments?

    Jim Butcher's story and Kate Reading's performance are both wonderful, as usual. However, this book's recording appears to have several instances where there may have been problems while editing. Words were cut off, breaks between sentences were non-existent, etc. These were not throughout the book, but occurred frequently enough to be distracting and to think that editing was rushed.
