    Story
    "Totally Entertained!"
    If you could sum up Heroes Wanted in three words, what would they be?

    Awesome, Entertaining, Well Written


    What other book might you compare Heroes Wanted to and why?

    Any children's fantasy and fable. It delivers.


    What does Linda Joy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Awesome, pleasant voice and expressions. A different kind of "sense of fun" in the verbal tale.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    In the realms of mythology and fantasy, Dragons and Gods, come meet the ordinary people.


    Any additional comments?

    I love heroes in myth and fantasy, so I was hooked by the title going in. The story is well written. Lively to listen to, I loved the reader’s voice, and the way she read it. Change can be very distressing, but the most unexpected opportunities develop, when everything falls apart in real life too. The story was surprisingly well told, with a very adult fear reflected in different point of view of fantasy and fable. The first story reminded me of my real life job in its essence. I enjoyed it immensely, definitely a five star story. The audible version was so much fun to listen to. It made me happy. I’m an avid reader, so I can be hard to please, and I was so entertained. I read the e-book too, which I also enjoy a lot. I am very into mythology. I loved that about this second story. It was wonderful. Again it was well written, well told, and even made me “tear up”. I loved the ending; it was smooth and totally believable. Real fears about war and losing loved ones, dealt with, and delivered in manner that leaves you smiling wanting more. I can’t wait to read and listen to more of this author.

    Story
    "stories that are accessible to children and adults"



    Two very clever stories, the first laden with mythological creatures as is wends through the fantastical with a twist of corporate red tape and a touch of science fiction, and the difficulties of maintaining a positive outlook when dealing with the customers of a hero.
    Linda Joy manages to present all of the character switches and emotional impact required, including that punch of dealing with customers and a horrible villian. Her voicing of Rose as the heroine, with her more than slightly stressful task is spot on and enjoyable, even as the story has many elements running in and out.

    The second story combines Germanic mythology with the Roman in an oddly conceived and cleverly plotted combination to build a new heroic creature. Again Linda Joy manages to perform the stories with pointed yet not over the top voices, adding in her clear enunciation and elements of emotional veracity to aid the building tension as the story comes to climax.

    Katharina Gerlach has written two very clever stories that are accessible to children and adults alike. There is action and fantasy to appeal to children, and several nuanced layers of the frustration and stress inherent in corporate or cooperative endeavors. A truly fun listen.

    I received an AudioBook copy of the title via AudioBook Jukebox. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
