    "One of My Favorite Books"

    It's quite exciting and enthralling. I can't wait till audible gets the next book. When there's not excitment, there's always something interesting.

    "Fun and Satisfying"

    I've seen this title on the shelves for years, but I always had so many others to read. In looking for an audible (sometimes I want someone else to read to me), I stumbled across the Children of the Lamp series again. I downloaded this first one and was delighted. It had just enough adventure, history, mystery, and fantasy to satisfy my literary appetite. Ron Keith did an awesome job of narrating. He has a whimsical style to his reading that made even the most mundane sentences fun to hear. I look forward to listening to the next book of the series.

    "Wonderful!"

    My children and I listened to this as well as the other two books on a long road trip. We couldn't wait to get started each day to hear more of the book. "Can we turn on John and Phillipa yet?!" is what I would hear every time we returned to the car. Some of the references were over the head of my 8 year old, but he still greatly enjoyed them and has actually asked to start them all over again right away. My 12 yo and I laughed hysterically over many of the references to customs and legends that "mundanes" have misinterpretted from Djinn. Plenty of humor even for adults. Some 'scary' parts, but not too long or too intense.
