    "Very Prejudice Review"

    I love this writer team. I love the series. They call this book a spin off because it does not feature the main romantic couple from the other books, but for those who have read any of the books after book 1, these are characters who have constantly been there and have independent, unique, and non-flattened personalities. This book is simply another great example of the solid writing style I expect from this author.

    As for the reading, I enjoyed the entire performance. I love the consistency of having the same reader throughout the series. There is a wholeness, a consistency, with the performances that makes it easy to want to listen to the whole series everytime I think about listening to one of the books.

    I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!

    "Fun listen!"
    Any additional comments?

    Gunmetal Magic is a fun journey. Andrea Nash is hired to investigate some pack deaths. To investigate the murders, Nash must interact with Raphael. Some of the truly great characters in this series such as Barabas, Roman, and Aunt B also return. If you like other books by these writers, you will like this book, but I do not suggest starting the series with this book. You should read the Kate Daniel's series first to get full enjoyment out of this book. Renée Raudman is still great.

    "Doesn't standalone as well as some spin-off series"

    I bought this book because the premise sounded interesting.
    I read/listen to a lot of scifi/fantasy & I'm usually pretty quick about grasping the "rules." But Ilona Andrews assumes the reader is familiar with this world & doesn't give a lot of foundation, s/he just plunges into the story & tosses out a few breadcrumbs here & there. I haven't "read" any of the Kate Daniels stories this is spun off from, so I spent a fair amount of time trying to figure out how this universe worked - Boudas are hyena shapeshifters, but they don't have to completely shift, they can partially shift into a hybrid "warrior" form, but there are shapeshifters whose parents were animals that shifted to human & mated with a human and those Beastkins are lower class freaks....What?.
    I think I would have enjoyed it more, if I could have understood the rules & who the players were earlier in the story.
    As for the narrator, I'm not a fan. The voice she used for Andrea was irritating, both in her human & beastkin forms. A lot of the male characters sounded alike; which would be fine, except she was clearly trying to make each character different. And, at one point, she completely forgot how she had made two characters sound; so, later in the story, when a recording is played of a conversation, the voices were completely different from their previous appearance.
    I might try one of the Kate Daniels stories, but at this point, I'll probably go back to a tried & true author & narrator. (I highly recommend Wil Wheaton or Susan Erickson as narrators - both are excellent)

    "Keeps getting better, runs deep"

    The series keeps getting better and better. This Book has only entertaining value but also deeper themes. I love the way the series is continually developing characters and they grow in nuance and depth. Having a whole novel told from Andrea's point of view is delightful. Definitely one of my favorite books so far this year. The narrator continues to impress. I will definitely find more books narrated by her.

    "Missing free novella"
    What made the experience of listening to Gunmetal Magic the most enjoyable?

    This was a great book, but buy it through ITunes not through Audible as the Audible one is missing the free novella - Magic Gifts.

    So very good in every way. The voices are perfect and the story stands on its own with fantastic visuals.

    "BullsEye! Andrea's on target!"
    Would you listen to Gunmetal Magic again? Why?

    Ilona and Gordon Andrews are fantastic story tellers. I just reread every book they've written but had missed this one. What a great tale for Andrea and Raphael. I loved seeing the beast lord and Kate again and rally for the Bauda's kick azz attitudes. Shape shifters and magic combust in this tale but I could not put it down. Bravo!


    What other book might you compare Gunmetal Magic to and why?

    I don't like to compare books but love the premise of this reality of magic and tech. Andrea and Kate have great advantages with multiple skill sets, a must for their world.


    Have you listened to any of Renée Raudman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love her! She has a different voice for everyone of Ilona Andrews books that she narrated.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both. I am just way to vested in the characters Ilona Andrews creates and I adore Aunt Bea.

    "Vulgar"

    The storyline could've been really good but it was very vulgar, so was hard to get past the bad language. Also it was a little confusing.

    "Great story different perspective"

    The Kete Daniels series just gets better and better. This story is about Kate's best friend Andrea. I love how Ilona Andrews kept this story within the Kate series but separate as well. As the rest of the series, it is has it all - action, humor, romance and a great story line. I've already listened to it twice!
