    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 shapeshifters called skinwalkers.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Tricked to be better than the print version?

    I think both have equal strengths.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The beginning romance between Atticus and Granuaille. Plus Coyote's antics.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I found it hard to judge, after buying the first three books narrated by Luke Daniels a few years ago. While I think Chris' narration is probably very good, in my opinion Luke's is superior.


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

    The vampire battle.


    Any additional comments?

    As I stated above, if you already own 1-3 from their previous incarnation be prepared for an adjustment period.

    Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.

    What did you love best about Timeless?

    The development of characters from the previous novels and the combination of genres, there's romance, action, mystery and humour.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course Alexia is fabulous, but there is such a well-balanced ensemble of characters that it really is too hard to pick.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The fight scenes in the the Alexandria hive, or any with descriptions of Egypt.


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

    Something witty, I'm sure!


    Any additional comments?

    I'd love to see the earlier novels in this series recorded as audiobooks. I wouldn't recommend listening to them out of order.

    Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant. Can Alexia determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria?

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

    Humorous, light-hearted, well-read


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Heartless?

    The octomaton storming London, and the loss of the parasol!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Alexia's drawn out and chaotic labor.


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

    Alexia's devotion to the pack, and especially Biffy.


    Any additional comments?

    I would suggest you read the first three books before listening. (Hopefully they are recorded soon!) The characters, plot and world of the novel might not be very clear without this fore knowledge.
