    Story
    "Impressed with this crossover"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Very much so. I am not a big follower of the Joann Walker series, although I've listened to approximately three of the books. I have listened to all the Jane Yellowrock series and together they made a really good team in this story. I know I'll listen to again....


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the two women found each other and recognized the power that each had. How they knew how to work together so beautifully even though they had never seen or heard of each other before that day.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the beginning of the book where Jane and Jo come across a daemon, and Jane turns to her Beast and kills it. Jo finds that she can talk to Beast in her mind and to Jane. They come to an understanding that at some points are quite amusing.


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

    Jane and Jo meet a god


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to see more like this, short novellas that have a beginning and an end. Not making it a series, but knowing the characters and what who they are and not sure how they would interact was really enjoyable.

    "Yellowrock & Walkingstick in NOLA"

    I've listened to the Walker Paper series and the Jane Yellowrock series and this was a fun crossover. I loved seeing our strong butt-kicking heroines' impressions of and interactions with each other, the mix of magics was intriguing, and I enjoyed hearing each character's voice. For future crossovers of this sort, narrator collaboration on people and place names would make for a better listen; the mismatched pronunciations of the oft said "Amaury" were a distraction. All in all, worth a listen, though, especially if you're already a fan.

    "Needs Better Editing"

    Only because I've very much enjoyed Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series and because I also very much like the narrator who's voice IS Jane Yellowrock, I listened to the whole 3+ hrs of this audio book. While, yeah, I liked the storyline, the editing wasn't very good. You could tell where the voices were dubbed in and Gabra Zackman is not the same caliber as Kristine Hvam, which made the dubbing more obvious. But hey, it was only 3hrs of listening while I worked and still a good story.

    Story
    "What an awesome combination!"

    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.

    Story
    "My Kingdom for a Good Sound Mix"

    I must confess: I am a Jane Yellowrock junkie. I was super excited to have a new short story to give me a fix until Faith Hunter finishes the next book. I was even a bit intrigued, (and hopeful!) to find a new series (Walker Papers) to latch onto.

    The story is... well.... okay, it's okay. Not a lot of intrigue or twists to wrap your ears around. You go from point A to point B without much in-between. Khristine Hvam makes Gabra Zackman sound absolutely monotone in comparison and it doesn't help that 1) the mix isn't balanced. Jane is super loud and Joanne, hard to hear and 2) both narrators pronounce the name of the villain different. These stories are produced and directed, are they not? How hard is it to get a pronunciation consistent?

    If you are a fan of either of these authors, I definitely recommend this as a fun listen. If you are new to either, I would probably suggest you start with a book one. I'm not sure I'll look into the Walker Papers, but maaaaay-beeee.

    Paw. Paw. Paw.

    Story
    "Disappointed with this crossover novel"
    Would you try another book written by Faith Hunter and C. E. Murphy or narrated by Khristine Hvam and Gabra Zackman ?

    I am not sure


    What other book might you compare Easy Pickings to, and why?

    I have listened to all the jane yellorock books and loved them


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The 2 narrators sounded like they had never met and recorded their pieces in different countries. I just didn't find their delivery comfortable or convincing. The other Jane Yellowrock books the narration was nearly as impressive as the writing and plots


    Did Easy Pickings inspire you to do anything?

    No

    Story
    "Jane Yellowrock fans, don't miss out."

    My friends on Audible.com have been telling me to get this for ages, so I was really pleased when I at last found it in this weeks new releases. This is, as the title says a Jane Yellowrock/Walker Papers Crossover, set in an alternate universe closer to Jane's New Orleans but still startlingly different. Jane soon finds herself in a magical power struggle that could never happen in her own world. I can't say much without spoiling this short story but you do need to have read up to at least book three in the Jane Yellowrock series, to avoid major spoilers for that book.
    Unfortunately Audible UK doesn't have C.E. Murphy's series at the time of writing my review but it has been recommended to me by other Faith Hunter fans in the States and after reading this book I can understand why. I'd definitely listen to this again and will be putting in a content request for C.E. Murphy's series.
    The narrators are two of my favorites Khristine Hvam is very well known, having narrated all the Jane Yellowrock series and The Chronicles Of Elantra, which is another favorite of mine. Her acting is impeccable and she will always be in my top five. Gabra Zackerman did a great job with Mercedes Lackey's tales of the 500 kingdoms. While she doesn't quite have the presence of Hvam, she has a really pleasant way of telling a tale and is able to bring to life the soul of her characters.
    My only complaint is that not knowing the Walker Papers, it took me a little while to get into the story and because of this I would have liked it to be a bit longer. If I'd read the Walker Papers and didn't need to play catch up with the character, I expect I would have given it a 5 and the reviews on Audible.com are similarly positive.
