    It's 1942. A Marine aviator, an Army paratrooper and demolitions expert, and a non-com radio man are on an impossible mission for the OSS - sabotaging the resupply of German ships and submarines - by any means necessary!

    Robert E. Scarcelle says: "Worth the listen"
    "A good example of what I call "historical fiction""

    If you could sum up Honor Bound in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, creative, and meticulous.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I found the father, Jorge Gallermo Frade, to be my favorite (I hope I didn't butcher the spelling). The author tempers his latin machismo, honor, and paternal love very well.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    The loyal manservant, Enrico.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Argentina - another front of WWII


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to listening to the second installment.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Nicholas says: "Hooked in an Instant"
    "The Iron Druid continues to impress"

    What did you love best about Tricked?

    Tricked is a great story. I have fallen in love with this series and the last installment is as good as the earlier ones. The whole series is a perfect choice to listen to while you walk or do whatever it is you do to decompress from a stressful day.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The strength of this story, and the series as a whole, is the interplay and chemistry among the characters.


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

    Oberon...hands down. He is a great tool to add some levity and spark to the story. It makes me wish I could talk to my dog.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    At times the book is laugh out loud funny; which can be emberrasing if you are listening at your local coffee shop. Not that it happened to me (blushing)...


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoyed Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, or anything of the genre, this series is a great next choice, and a good find.
