Sebastian Orwell did the only thing a smart wizard could do when he stumbled upon the wounded Crown Prince: He healed him and dumped him in a tavern where he could continue not being Sebastian's problem. Unfortunately, the prince isn't content with being alive, and he hunts Sebastian down to thank him personally. Not only is Sebastian stuck with the prince's unwanted affections, but he's also confronted by growing evidence linking the assassination attempt to someone from his father's past.

I have now listened to this boom three times. I love each and every one of the characters. Sebastian's reluctance for adventures and generally grumpiness at being dragged into them always makes me laugh.
The story is well written and complex but lighthearted enough to read over and over again. It has become my go-to story whenever I need a pick me up.

Valya, a young elven mage recently recruited into the Wardens, has been tasked with studying the historical record of previous Blights in order to gain insight into newly reported and disturbing darkspawn phenomena. Her research into the Fourth Blight leads her to an encoded reference scrawled in the margins of an ancient map and to the hidden diary of Issenya, one of the last of the fabled griffon riders. As the dark secrets buried in Isseyna's story unfold, Valya begins to question everything she thought she knew about the heroic Grey Wardens.

A heart wrenching but great story. Always wondered what the Grey Wardens were like with their Griffins and 'Last Flight' gave me the chance to see them in action.

Sorcerer Percival Endicott Whyborne and his husband, Griffin Flaherty, have enjoyed an unprecedented stretch of peace and quiet. Unfortunately, the calm is shattered by the arrival of a package from Griffin's brother, Jack, who has uncovered a strange artifact while digging for gold in Alaska. The discovery of a previously unknown civilization could revive the career of their friend, Dr. Christine Putnam, or it might kill them all if the hints of dark sorcery surrounding the find are true.

As usual this has been a truly enjoyable experience; from the story to the narration.
Jumping from Griffin to Whyborne was at first tricky to keep up with but it was worth the effort to get a glimpse into each of their thoughts.
Looking forward to the next one.

There have been noticeable improvements in the story, narration, and quality of the audio sin e the first in this series, Widdershins. I'm very pleased that I chose to stick with it, despite the rough start with the audio quality in the first book. I've only grown to love the characters more and more and I truly enjoy the enthusiasm Julian G. Simmons brings to the story.

Absolutely loved getting to know Royce and Hadrian. They have quickly become two of my favorite characters. The story itself was well paced and I was never bored listening to it.
