    Being immortal is not all it once was. Yes, the 12 Greek gods of Olympus are alive and well in the 21st century, but they are crammed together in a London town house: and are none too happy about it. Even more disturbing, their powers are waning.

    Mike From Mesa says: "Delightful fantasy"
    "Plain and simply enjoyable"
    Overall

    Nothing deep, nothing earth-shattering, just plain enjoyable. I listened to this one straight through, many times laughing-out-loud to the dismay of my co-workers. If you like Robert Asprin, Spider Robinson or Terry Pratchett you will like this book.

    When Anna Marshall is transported from her boring and frustrating life in Ames, Iowa, to the very different world of Erde, she's angry and confused. But she soon finds out that for the first time in her life she's uniquely powerful. In Iowa, Anna was a music teacher and small-time opera singer, but on Erde, her musical ability makes her a big-time sorceress-potentially. First, though, she must figure out how to use her ability before the rulers kill her.

    Story

    I was hesitant to purchase this book. It follows a plot that has been done many times by many authors. The mix of today and another world and time. Very few authors have done the storyline credit, Modesitt Jr is now one of them. I pre-ordered the sequel before I was half-way through and am eagerly anticipating its arrival on my phone.

    Decades after the fall of Cyador, its survivors have reestablished themselves in Cigoerne, a fertile country coveted by hostile neighbors in less hospitable lands. Young Lerial, the second son of Duke Kiedron, lives in the shadow of his older brother Lephi, the heir to their father's realm. Lerial's future seems preordained: He will one day command his brother's forces in defense of Cigoerne, serving at his older sibling's pleasure and no more.

    Just when I was beginning to have my doubts about the longevity of this series, the author reinvigorates the series. The performance was as usual excellent, and I can't wait to hear more from this line.

    Well done conclusion and wrap up of the primary story lines. Kudos to a very good epilogue as many books fail on that front. The performance was well done and I will look in the future to books narrated by Mr Perkins.
