    Alison Wescot inherited the antique store the day her mother died. It was nothing she wanted, but she couldn't part with it. The antiques inside were all she had left of her mother. She thought she knew every piece in the store, until one day she discovered a box with a key inside, along with a letter from her mother. A key to a door she never knew existed.

    Thought the narration was really good, she did a good job with the male characters as well as giving a strong sense of who main character is. This is kinda not my typical fantasy listen, but was OK. Story was pretty typical and straight froward, no real twist or turns. Main character was likable, the rest of the cast was fair.

    New York Times best-selling author Kevin Hearne returns with the finale to his wildly popular action-adventure series, The Iron Druid Chronicles. Two-thousand-year-old Druid Atticus O'Sullivan travels to Asgard and faces off against the Norse gods to try to prevent Ragnarok in the final battle for the fate of mankind.

    Story

    This is a top 3 favorite series for me, so the end of Atticus' story is bittersweet to say the least. SPOILER ALERT***************Defeating Loki and stopping Ragnarök didn't really seam that difficult. Was definitely not a fan of the Norse pantheon in this one. They hid in cloud, let everyone fight the good fight, then gang up on Atticus and lop off his arm, all the while everyone else merely lets it all play out. Owens story plays out nicely and I enjoyed his part. To be honest, I was fine with most of the book with the exception of piling on Atticus, other than Granuaile leaving him (a good thing, nobody needs the PC police around). He started the series with a 3 vs. 1 faeries, it ended with him and Oberon, a man and his dog.

    For the first time in millennia, the all-consuming Darkness has been pushed back. Thanks to Arthur and his ragtag army of women, there's finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Or there would have been if Mammon, Princess of Greed hadn't awakened. Powerful enough to level a town with the blink of an eye and ally to no one, Mammon has one goal and one goal only. To own everything in Hell, starting with Arthur and his friends. And if he can't stop her from taking over while fending off attacks from Hell's ruling class, well, let's just say that his chance to stop the Darkness will slip from slim to none.

    It seems to me that Tufo and Runnette are in very rare company. This combination of author and narrator is simply amazing. This is the 14-15th book with them and I'm still in awe! Can't wait till I get the next one.

    Teri and Phil had never needed their own personal god. But when Phil is passed up for a promotion - again - it's time to take matters into their own hands. And look online. Choosing a god isn't as simple as you would think. There are too many choices; and they often have very hefty prices for their eternal devotion: blood, money, sacrifices, and vows of chastity. But then they find Luka, raccoon god of prosperity. All he wants is a small cut of their good fortune. Oh - and to crash on their couch for a few days.

    Arthur Curie never expected to wind up in Hell. At least, not because he found an ancient sword in a pawnshop. To make matters worse, Hell isn't as he thought. It's a desolate wasteland under siege by an all-consuming void known as the Darkness.

    This book is definitely written from a strong male perspective. Kinda like Nerds meet Heavy Metal. Dude finds sword, goes to hell, which is ironically filled with only hot amazing women. Dude uses sword (PUN intended) to build women into a fighting force who are there to fight and protect him. Narration is really good, story is OK, a good listen overall.

    Sword fights and romance, miracles and mystery, treachery and sly humor.... A god summons a curious assortment of witnesses to his temple to testify on what they know about a jewel that was lost 1,000 years ago. At least one of them is guilty. Others are lying.... Dave Duncan at his devious best.

    Not a bad story overall, but I was not a fan of the story set up. Was a story told within a story. Multiple characters telling their fitting pieces to the story puzzle. Narration was OK, not a lot of emotion, but not bad either.

    In book three, The Agreement: A Tale of the Rapture, the gang reunites and strikes a bargain with Gabriel to travel to Hades to retrieve his fallen angel. All this must occur before the trumpets blare or the Agreement is considered null and void. It makes sense after all, the Rapture is the end.
