Justis Fearsson is a weremyste. He wields potent magic, but every month, on the full moon, he loses his mind. He's also a private detective who can't afford to take time off from his latest investigation while his sanity goes AWOL. A legion of dark sorcerers has descended on Phoenix, wreaking havoc in the blistering desert heat. With the next moon phasing approaching, Jay has to figure out what connects a billionaire financier and a vicious drug kingpin to an attempted terrorist attack, a spate of ritual killings, and the murder of a powerful runemyste.

Two books in to this series and I'm all in. Good stories, interesting characters and all the elements I enjoy in urban fantasy. Take a good foundation and then get Bronson Pinot to narrate and there's a guaranteed winner. Yes, I snagged book one because of Mr. Pinchot's talent but came back for book 2 and soon for book 3 because of the story. All around good stuff.

Well crafted interesting story, lots of good characters, horrible narrator. I hate to bad-mouth people but perhaps a job reading stock market reports or actuarial tables would be a better fit. I got this book because book 2 is narrated by James Marsters, and I wanted to start at the beginning of the series.

The story and character development are worth spending a credit. But if you occasionally read instead of listen, this would be the one to buy a hard copy.

I would happily spend a credit to listen to James Marsters read the back of cereal boxes. Having said that, this is also a good story with really interesting characters. The bad news is that you really need to read the first book in the series, and unfortunately it was NOT narrated by James Marsters. The story is good enough that it is worth suffering through the very poor narration. Maybe go for the written version?

At any rate, this is an enjoyable diversion. I guess it is YA but I would not have noticed other than some teen angst in the love interests. I enjoyed it very much.

Dina DeMille may run the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, but she caters to a very particular kind of guest...the kind that no one on Earth is supposed to know about. Guests like a former intergalactic tyrant with an impressive bounty on her head, the Lord Marshal of a powerful vampire clan, and a displaced-and-superhot werewolf; so don't stand too close, or you may be collateral damage.

This series started out a bit slow especially for one coming from this author and read by one of the best narrators ever. This is book three and I really enjoyed this one. Maybe you need all three to really get your arms around the complex world(s)? I say it is worth the slow start and I'm eagerly looking forward to the next installment.

Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

In AD 1119, a group of nine crusaders became known as the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon - a militant monastic order charged with protecting pilgrims and caravans traveling on the roads to and from the Holy Land. In time, the Knights Templar would grow in power and, ultimately, be laid low. But a small offshoot of the Templars endure and have returned to the order's original mission: to defend the roads of the world and guard those who travel on them.

What a great story! Love the characters, all unique and fully fleshed out, all interesting. Unknown if they would be quite as good without this narrator. Bronson Pinchot is hands-down the best narrator out there. Which is why I tried this author as I don't think he agrees to do boring books. Thank you for a very entertaining ride.

Have you ever seen a planet invaded by rampaging space mutants from another dimension or Nazi dinosaurs from the future? Don't let this happen to you! Rifts happen, so you should be ready when universes collide. A policy with Stranger & Stranger can cover all of your interdimensional insurance needs. Rated "Number One in Customer Satisfaction" for three years running, no claim is too big or too weird for Tom Stranger to handle.

Love this series, love the characters, love the narrator. As soon as this book was released I started at the beginning re-listening to the first three books before starting this one. I think poor Ben got short-changed. He didn't really make much of a ripple in the first three books and I don't feel we got to know him any better now. Sort of felt like the author never really knew him either, just wrote the book because obviously he had to have one.

So sorry Ben. But I'm glad you've had your happy ending. I hope Kylie Scott will keep the series going with other characters .... Sam & Martha? Vaughn? Or if she starts a different series I'll buy on her name alone, she's a good storyteller and I expect she'll have a long and fruitful career.

There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

This is a bit of a different genre than my usual. Bought because I was intrigued but It was sitting around in my library for quite a while. Finally picked it up and I'm kicking myself for waiting, it was a darn good story with a fun cast of characters. I wouldn't know how to really classify it doesn't really fit with urban fantasy or sci fi, a little of both. maybe some streampunk and some history too?

The narrator pulls off that most difficult job of reading a story with an ensemble cast and doing distinct and appropriate and consistent voices for each so you can get lost in the story knowing exactly who is saying what and getting all the emotion and interplay between characters not really noticing that you're being read to. Good job! Fun group of voices, he must have had fun coming up with them. Definitely worth a listen.
