I enjoyed the Icewind Dale Trilogy, a story of the earliest days of Drizzt's existence above ground. I enjoyed watching the Companions develop their relationships. The story is fast paced, plenty of action. Victor Bevine did a good job of narrating.
I first learned of C.E. Murphy when she joined forces with Faith Hunter and the Jane Yellow Rock series (my favorite all-time series). I enjoyed listening to the story, so I started listening to the Walker series. This series I rate as a pretty solid 4-5. It has a pretty solid story line and well developed characters, plenty of action.
I very much enjoyed this trilogy. In fact, I wish the author had not ended the trilogy, but had gone on to tell more stories about the Nephilim. I think there was at least one more story there. If you like stories about shape changers, demon hunters, vampires, werewolves, etc., you will enjoy this trilogy, set in Old England. The characters are well developed. The way I judge a series is this: if I think about it when I am not reading it, and wonder what the characters are going to do next, and review the battle they were just in with my mind, I know it is a good series. This one had me doing that.
I was very much enjoying this book, right up until the point in the story that a juvenile female is being systematically beaten and tortured - repeatedly. It turned my stomach, and the revulsion stayed with me for days. I cannot finish the story, and never will. I really was shocked to discover this brutality in Terry Brooks' series. I am so disappointed.
I have been an avid listener of the Jane Yellow Rock series, but after listening to this combination of supernatural crimefighters, I have bought the C.E. Murphy series, too, and I am looking forward to getting to know JoAnne better. Thanks, Faith Hunter and C.E. Murphy, for doing this combination story. And the narrators did a great job of bringing the characters together. The only reason I subtracted a star is for the audio, which was bad. Khristine Hvam was much louder than Gabra Zackman, and it made for difficult listening, as one was always either too quiet or too loud.
This story kept me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails through the entire story! Faith Hunter pulled out all the stops in this gripping addition to the Jane Yellow Rock series. Wow! And Khristine Hvam did her usual awesome job of bringing the characters to life, giving them incredible personality and emotion in her narration. If you love vampire stories, and you have never listened to the Jane Yellow Rock series, you have no idea what you are missing out on!!! But I highly recommend that you buy Skinwalker, the first story in the series, and get started today!!!
I just love the Iron Druid series. It is witty, and keeps me laughing, especially Oberon's comments. Luke Daniels really brings him to life. I love the interplay with the pantheons, and I appreciate Atticus' views of religion. Overall, it is a really enjoyable series. Luke Daniels does an excellent job in the narration department.
I enjoyed this story. Lots of magic and action. Harry has too many guilt trips for me, though, and I could choke Murphy for always wanting to arrest everyone and drag them downtown behind bars for questioning. James Marsters does a good job of narration, but his quick inhalations hurt my ears sometimes. Still, I now own the next three audiobooks in this series, and I am looking forward to listening to them.
I really enjoyed listening to this story. It has a lot of awesome action, lots of the ancient gods come to life, and the dog kept me in stitches!!! I want another sausage, after that!!! I just downloaded the next two books in the series, and I am looking forward to many more hours of excellent entertainment. Luke Daniels did a great job of narration, too.
I so very much enjoyed listening to these stories. Many of them have been hinted of in other full-length stories, but some of them were little surprise side trips. All of them were awesome. And I loved hearing Faith Hunter's actual voice for the first time. And I would add my thanks to Khristine Hvam for bringing Jane, Bruiser, Leo, and all of the other characters to life.
