    Story
    (763)

    After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris, the City of Lights. Home of Nicholas Flamel. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz and Paris is teeming with enemies. Niccolò Machiavelli, immortal author and art collector, is after them, and time is running. For every day spent without the Book of Abraham the Mage, they age one year, their magic becoming weaker and their bodies more frail. For Flamel, the Prophecy is becoming more and more clear.

    Robert says: "recommended though narrator was switched"
    "The Nicholas Flamel series continues"

    What made the experience of listening to The Magician the most enjoyable?

    The way the narrator, Eric Singer, used different accents and timbres in his voice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    St. Germaine


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The voice of Mars Alto. He didn't terrify me or make me think of scary, all-powerful Elders.

    Story
    (1111)

    Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid. When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical? But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic.

    Jessica says: "Another great paranormal series!"
    "Succubus is a winner"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Succubus Blues to be better than the print version?

    No, not really. I always say the book is better than the movie, so I guess in this case, it would be better than the audio version. You can go back and re-read the book. The reader spoke in such an emotionally dark way, I didn't quite connect with her.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was pretty original, compared to all the other PNR books that are out today. Succubus and Incubus legends aren't often explored in PNR. I also liked the mystery.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Georgina ended up taking Seth to Crystal Stars for the first time. Yes, Georgina was being a bit childish, but she was right; a lot of frauds are out there.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment where she kissed Seth and got to see his love for her.


    Any additional comments?

    Georgina is definitely a flawed character. I like her a lot, but she does have her moments when she's not at her best.
