    Booted from one exclusive school to the next since his foster mom's death three years ago, 16-year-old Seph McCauley knows he's different. But he doesn't understand why he can summon menacing ravens, freeze summer ponds, and torch all he touches. And then Seph makes the mistake of trusting his new headmaster. If you like Harry Potter, you'll love Seph McCauley.

    Story

    Dreadful - whoever edited this work did not actually LISTEN to the narrator. He smacks his lips and inhales audibly for EVERY breath. It is so distracting. I've struggled through the first part and have debated several times to stop listening and just re-read the actual novel (which I probably will). I wish she could have gotten Rebecca Monder (Seven Realms) or maybe Luke Daniels to read this lovely series. Read the book...it's much better in your head than listening to this narrator...too bad.

    The Winter Queen of Faerie has manipulated Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

    Story

    I love this series but the narrator is so annoying it makes it almost impossible to listen. He does clever voices but he's a constant lip smacker. I tried to tell myself it was just a fizzy coke by the Mic but it never stopped. Why didn't the producer catch this? Will NOT be listening to the rest of the series.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    Story

    This story continues to pull me in with its own planetary gravity. Luke Daniels pumps pure life into this book and the entire series! Kevin Hearne tells a fabulous tale, but Luke Daniels is it's heartbeat. I've listened to it twice (the entire series so far) and it doesn't disappoint nor become stagnant. Kevin Hearne has inspired me to brush up on my Norse mythology. You wont be disappointed - even if you've never had the fish and chips at Rula Bula :)

    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 story is addictive! What a clever tale. The accents and voices were fantastic too. When I do read it in print, I will forever hear Luke Daniels visual painting of my favorite characters, Oberon and the widow. I laughed out loud on several occasions just because of Oberon alone. I know for certain that I would have stumbled over and over again had I tried to read this book in the traditional sense - strange names of gods and celtic references. With an engaging narrator like Luke Daniels I couldn't put it down. Kevin Hearne spins a wonderful yarn and he found (or someone did) the perfect narrator for this work. Can't wait to listen to his next books. Being set in Tempe and other parts of Arizona that I know quite well made it even more entertaining for me. You will love this story and it's delivery!

    Story

    It seemed like forever to get to this part of the story, but it was worth it. I almost gave up on the series a couple times when the narrators detracted from the story and at times the story itself got a little lengthy. I was disheartened so many times when victory was yanked out of our heroes hands but in the end, "truth" prevails. Nice epic. I will probably relisten to the entire series at least 2 more times :)

    The dangerous, fanatical Imperial Order, under the leadership of the power-mad Emperor Jagang and his multitude of demonic underlings, unleashes a deadly plague. To find a cure, Richard Cypher and his beloved Kahlan Amnell must seek out the legendary Temple of the Winds, a fortress of evil sealed away for three thousand years. But the path of the Seeker of Truth is never an easy one - even if he can reach the Temple at all, there is no guarantee he'll ever return.

    Danielle says: "Good book, poor narration"
    "Book Great - Narration Not So Much"
    Overall

    This is a great series and being the 4th book, the 4th narrator obviously has not listened to any of the previous 3 recordings nor seen the take-off show on Sci-Fi (Legend of the Seeker). My goodness! Where was the editor's head when reviewing this work? It took me 20-30 minutes into the story to realize that he was referring to Kahlan (KAY-Lynn), not COLLIN, a new character. I'm sure he's an excellent narrator and he does fabulous voices but they are so out of sync with the 1st 3 narrators it's a distraction. The voice of "Zed" sounds like an old fool woman instead of a wizard, the Mord Sith have an A-geal instead of an a-geal. Attie is auddie and so on....If I weren't so engrossed in the actually story I would have deleted it but there are more books in the series and I just can't. Dick Hill you are not at fault, someone should have directed your narration better, but it is mind-boggling the distraction it causes when listening to this story.
