    A small Maine city has turned into a killing ground. Is it a serial killer, someone with a penchant for the macabre and a need to destroy? Or is it a darker force, an ancient legend from a mysterious Island come ashore to wreak havoc upon the unsuspecting? Amid the backdrop of Portland’s burgeoning night scene, Police Lieutenant Rick Jennings discovers that no one is safe, and that evil has many faces.

    Story

    The idea of the story is very good but the dialogue between characters in the book seems a little stilted. I just can't imagine people in the real world talking to each other like that. Also, there seems to be some production quality issues early on in the recording. I swear I can hear some background noises like pages being turned in the first hour.

    Despite all that this was a very enjoyable listen. While listening I kept imagining this book as a movie like The Crow. I look forward to listening to some other Mark Edward Hall books.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Story

    This was a truly enjoyable urban fantasy. All of the elements that make for a great listen are there. The narrator did a great job with pacing and differentiating the characters. There is just the right amount of mythos, action, and humor to make the time fly by.

    The last thing teenager Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing over the summer was meeting Ren, a mysterious white tiger and cursed Indian prince! When she learns she alone can break the Tiger's curse, Kelsey's life is turned upside-down. The unlikely duo journeys halfway around the world to piece together an Indian prophecy, find a way to free the man trapped by a centuries-old spell, and discover the path to their true destiny.

    Story

    The parts for a truly great story are there: an ancient curse, an interesting heroine, and and exotic venue. The problem for me was when things got too lovey dovey and the solid steel spine of the heroine turned in to a noodle that couldn't be even be called "Al Dente".

    I can see where this type of story would be very appealing to a YA female audience and this review would be quite different if I was a 14 year old girl.
