    Dark fantasy goes hardboiled in Book II of the hard-hitting Grimnoir Chronicles by the New York Times best-selling creator of Monster Hunter International. The Grimnoir Society’s mission is to protect people with magic, and they’ve done so—successfully and in secret—since the mysterious arrival of the Power in the 1850s, but when a magical assassin makes an attempt on the life of President Franklin Roosevelt, the crime is pinned on the Grimnoir.

    When the spirit of Lara's great-aunt Sadie - a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance - mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie's possession for more than 75 years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It did have its moments but all in all I could have missed this one.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sophie Kinsella before, how does this one compare?

    Below par.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene in public and she is talking to her Aunt Sadie and everyone thinks she is crazy. Smart to use the phone to cover up.


    Do you think Twenties Girl needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I just didn't love the characters.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has had a rough couple of weeks. As the only openly practicing professional wizard in the Chicago area, he has squared off against a multitude of supernatural bad guys. Harry has won the day against demons, poltergeists, sorcerers, trolls, vampires, werewolves, and even an evil faerie godmother. You might think nothing could spook him. You would be wrong.

    Where does Swan Song rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a long book. It was well written. The author took you on a trip similar to King`s The Stand. Only it wasn't disease but nuclear. Great characters. Definitely ranked high on my list for a good read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The diversity of the characters and the reality that good trumps evil.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Christopher Barnes says: "D*mn near flawless"

    Would you listen to NOS4A2 again? Why?

    Good chance. Enjoyed listening to this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story was original


    What about Kate Mulgrew’s performance did you like?

    I loved the performance. Charlie Manx`s voice was perfectly creepy. Lou`s was simple. Kate Mulgrew was superb.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book put you through an array of emotion. I liked Vic. Her anguish over Wayne & Lou were written & performed so well I found there were tears in my eyes. Altogether a good listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved finding a new author and I will definitely buy his books again.
