    After their adventures on the high seas, Locke and Jean are brought back to earth with a thump. Jean is mourning the loss of his lover, and Locke must live with the fallout of crossing the all-powerful magical assassins the Bonds Magi. It is a fall-out that will pit both men against Locke's own long-lost love. Sabetha is Locke's childhood sweetheart, the love of Locke's life, and now it is time for them to meet again. Employed on different sides of a vicious dispute between factions of the Bonds, Sabetha has just one goal-to destroy Locke forever.

    Ex-cop turned private investigator Robert Hoskins always enjoyed the stories his grandmother had told him as a child, stories of the Dryad that lived in the tree, the Faeries in the garden, and the magical world that was created in his imagination. He always enjoyed them; he just never thought that they were true. Robert's childhood world of magic becomes real when a chance encounter with a local casino mob boss introduces him to the world he was born into, the world that was hidden from him, the world of the Fae.

    Would you listen to Return of the High Fae again? Why?

    Absolutely! Nothing is better than listening to a great book while driving to work or school. The Narrator, Andrew Troth, did a fantastic job. The story was enthralling and had a good mix of humor and action, and I want to see what happens next!You always miss a few things the first time through a book, so I will have to give this one another listen.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the parts when they go over the history of the war between the Lillen (sp? That is the problem with audio books!) and the Fae. But I have to say that the part that gave me the most pleasure was listening to Robert learn how to talk to his dog!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved how Tom Keller mixed in all of the fantasy elements and creatures into a different, almost True Blood worthy, version of how humanity and fantastical creatures coexist along side each other. I can't think of a mythical beast, or species, that wasn't worked into the story, in one form or another. This is the type of Urban Fantasy I like to read!

    Young Prince Gaborn of Mystarria is traveling in disguise on a journey to ask for the hand of the lovely Princess Iome of Sylvarresta. Armed with his gifts of strength and perception, the prince and his bodyguard stop at a local tavern, where they spot a pair of assassins who have their sights set on Princess Iome's father. As they race to warn the king, they realize that more than the royal family is at risk - the very fate of the Earth is in jeopardy.

    "Great start!"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Sum of All Men again? Why?

    Idealy, I feel that a first novel in a series should never be able to get more than 4 stars. When you begin a journey with a new story, you need time to get to know the characters. You need to see if the story has the potential to capture your imagination and have you wanting more. You have to know that the majority of the story has not been told before you get to the end, and that is what this book does for me. I don't feel I can rate it 5 stars because I do not yet know if all of the mysteries that have been spelled out, will be resolved in a satisfactory way so it gets 4 stars. All in all, I think this was a good start to a fantasy series and I am eager to make it through the next audio book!
