Most definitely! This series is one that I'll be pulling out periodically for a long time I suspect. I'm wish there were going to be more stories in this line. For now I am making due with the novellas, even though San Diego 2014: The Last Stand of the California Browncoats is only available in e-books. This series has the rare combination of interesting ideas, characters you can enjoy and care about, and excellent audio performances.
Unlike several comment here, I do like Westwick's voice a great deal. Due to the accent, it does seem an unusual choice and when he voices the American characters, they all have heavy pseudo-New York (?) accents. However, his voice is very pleasant in tone and that makes the narration easy to listen to. In contrast, I found the female narrator louder and shrill, and therefore much harder to enjoy. I'm not sure either narrator is the best fit for this story, but I would listen to Westwick narrate again.
I am going through all three books in this series and really enjoying them. They have several things in common with the Harry Dresden books: a mix of action, supernatural and humour. Both the reader and author of the HD books are better, but these were worth the price. If you are buying for a child, they are a bit more adult in some situations and language. They are good escapist fun.
I loved the first Anita Blake books. However, as the series went on the romantic/sexual portions of the book bogged down the narrative and made them a lot less fun. Now I only really perk up when Edward comes on the scene. Unlike a hardcopy where you can skim through the padded conflict scenes between Anita and just about any authority figure, with audio book it's a lot harder. I couldn't force myself through this book even after several attempts.
