The New York Times best-selling author of the Nightside series, Simon R. Green has won widespread acclaim and an immense following for his Secret Histories novels featuring Eddie “Shaman Bond” Drood. In Green’s action-packed riff on everyone’s favorite superspy, Eddie once again finds himself at the center of supernatural intrigue. And even though protecting humanity from the forces of darkness is nothing new to Eddie, he now faces a threat that’s leaving him both shaken and stirred.

I liked this book. Having said that, the end is kind of a cop out. You can see what's coming fairly early on. It sets up the next few books in the series. The Regent is a pretty awesome character. Emery did his usual job. His Molly cracks me up.
I listened to this one straight through. The narration was outstanding. I liked this because it was more plot centric rather than non-stop random violence. Without giving anything away, Molly has become less edgy (more of a wuss) and didn't respond the way I would have expected based on a major revelation. Her sisters were also a bit more forgiving than I would have thought. I downgraded the story to a four because of that. I still enjoyed the whole experience and look forward to the next one.
I love the books that make me curse them for ending too soon and wishing for another right away. This...is one of those books.
Maybe if this is the last one of the series We hope Mr Green will keep up the good work
Not sure it has an interesting ending which will lead to a new series if we are lucky
We like Mr Gideon he does it right and we enjoy listening to him Keep up the professional work
Sorry we are a group of truck drivers who only get 4-5 hours max to listen, but we burn up good books like our trucks burn fuel
We hope Mr Green will continue his stories alot of us enjoy them with his varied charactors
Sorry about that chief!
I really enjoy listening to this series. I'm a fan of Mr. Green and I think this series is the best so far.
The banter between Molly and Eddie is enjoyable but sometimes its a little adolescent (one love and all that delusion).
Even though it gets kind of irritating, I would still buy the next audible book.
Thanks for making my evenings more enjoyable and light hearted!
Yes. It was one of the best of the series. I also enjoyed the narration of Gideon Emery. It was full of action.
I am torn between two parts the ending and molly in armor
I love the way he makes each character memorable. I love it when he does Eddie and Molly.
yes when the main characters show how much they care for each other.
I enjoyed how Mr. Green tied up some loose ends and left me wanting more with the ending. It was a great listen.
Gideon Emery narrating the last few books elevates what could be a fun, campy story into something a bit more, conveying the deep felt emotions Eddie feels for his family despite his as equally felt disappointments, fears, resentments and angers. Emery convey the mix of bantering humor and deadly seriousness that captures most of the book and definitely Eddie and Molly's relationship. And he's just so darn great to listen too. He's the main reason I keep splurging on the audiobooks, and probably the reason I think this series is pretty good instead of pretty silly. I wish the author would stick to a story line a bit more instead of showing off how many crazy creatures he can come up with and feature in every book without bothering to make them a part of the action. But I do enjoy this series more than the Nightside at this, it has more humor and forward momentum and less of the annoying tendency to treat the book like a museum of oddities.
I love SciFy and Fantasy Novels History is my second love especially the Dark ages through the Renaissance and The American Civil War
On the whole I enjoyed the book. It wasnt quite as good as the other books in the secret histories. I felt there were some gaps in the story but it was still well worth the listen and I am looking forward to Eddies New Job!
