    Eli Monpress is brilliant. He's incorrigible. And he's a thief. He’s also still at large, which drives Miranda Lyonette crazy. While she’s been kicked out of the Spirit Court, Eli’s had plenty of time to plan his next adventure. But now the tables have turned, because Miranda has a new job - and an opportunity to capture a certain thief. Things are about to get exciting for Eli.

    Story

    This is not Game of Thrones, hyper-realistic "gritty" fantasy here. This is a cartoon. It does not suffer from cartoon logic, it embraces it.

    Example the magic system animates EVERYTHING. You will see bank vault doors rolling around and throwing themselves at people. Once you understand this, the series is awesome!

    Eli's Father made the whole book enjoyable. The first book wasn't anything special, but this second book had A Great Villain, a Great Supporting Cast (Eli's Father :)

    Eli is great as always.

    Great Narrator!!!

    Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day.… Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful. He doesn’t know the half of it… Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains - led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone - to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.

    This book both feel unique from the rest of the series while delivering everything you love about the series.

    This is book 15. You must read previous books to enjoy this one. You could jump into the series as late as Book 9... but most consider book 4 the best starting point.

    After a brutal battle with the underworld that nearly destroyed him, Locke Lamora and his trusted sidekick, Jean, fled the island city of their birth and landed on the exotic shores of Tal Verrar to nurse their wounds. But even at this westernmost edge of civilization, they can't rest for long - and they are soon back doing what they do best: stealing from the undeserving rich and pocketing the proceeds for themselves.

    An orphan's life is harsh---and often short---in the island city of Camorr, built on the ruins of a mysterious alien race. But born with a quick wit and a gift for thieving, Locke Lamora has dodged both death and slavery, only to fall into the hands of an eyeless priest known as Chains---a man who is neither blind nor a priest. A con artist of extraordinary talent, Chains passes his skills on to his carefully selected "family" of orphans---a group known as the Gentlemen Bastards.

    The story of thieves builds over time to create a vivid setting and lovable characters. The narrator is also top notch giving life to the book.

    This is an amazing read for any fantasy fan.

    Bartimaeus, everyones favorite (wise-cracking) djinni, is back in book four of this best-selling series. As alluded to in the footnotes throughout the series, Bartimaeus has served hundreds of magicians during his 5,010 year career. Now, for the first time, fans will go back in time with the djinni, to Jerusalem and the court of King Solomon in 950s BC. Only in this adventure, it seems the great Bartimaeus has finally met his match.

    Continues the humor and fun of the series. Of course, the only returning character is Bart, but the book is just as good as the others.

    Mayhem. You won't find this story on television. Hollywood gets more than it bargained for when television's hottest star arrives at the Miami Police Department and develops an intense, professional interest in a camera-shy blood spatter analyst named Dexter Morgan. Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research", Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth for doughnuts and a seemingly average life.

    I was all but done with the series, but the second half of this book is awesome. I'll admit the book has some flaws and weird choices, that has always been true with the book series... But this book shakes things up near the end and makes me look forward to the next book.

    Read this one!

    Five hundred years ago, Johannes Gutenberg discovered the art of libriomancy, allowing him to reach into books to create things from their pages. Libriomancer Isaac Vainio is part of Die Zwelf Portenre, better known as the Porters, the organization founded by Gutenberg to protect the world from magical threats. Isaac is called in to investigate the killing of a wendigo, along with Porter psychiatrist Nidhi Shah and their dryad bodyguard and lover, Lena Greenwood. But their plan could unleash a far darker evil....

    If you have ever enjoyed reading a book, you will enjoy this book. The series is a celebration of books.

    The sequel has all the light fun of the first. What starts of as everyday "I'm goin' to solve a murder" Quickly transforms into a wholly unique scenario that challenges the characters on multiple levels.

    This novel is light entertainment, but well executed. After reading this book, Libriomancer is a book I recommend to EVERYONE.

    The narrator carries this book. The segments with Ram Oden are the best part. The sound of this guys voice is worth money.

    A lot of the book is medieval fantasy peasants arguing about the rules of time travel, which is both annoying and enjoyably bizarre, the oddness of it.

    The ending sets up this AMAZING idea for a sequel. You will know what that is when you get to the end! (However Book 2 "Rift" doesn't even get us to this point, maybe Book 3 will fulfill this promise.

    Admittedly, this would be more fun for a middle-grade student, However I enjoyed it a lot as a 24 year old. This would be my favorite series if I had read it as a child.

    These books are fun, no matter how old you are. It takes a good idea and explores it in a unique way. Well executed. Recommend Highly.

    More fun than an adult reading Harry Potter, in my opinion. This book is better at capturing the imagination of adults better than the Potter books. And is still tame enough for middle-grade students.

    The magic and history of the setting is expanded upon, building on details from earlier in the series. The twist in the magic system is surprising, inevitable, and Refreshing.
