Black magic gets a bad rap. Trust me. When people see me, they don't see Cisco Suarez, they see a rogue. A shadow charmer. A black magic outlaw. Maybe they're right. Maybe everything I touch withers and dies. But that doesn't give the SWAT team a right to come in with guns blazing.

On the brink of finally breaking the dwarven smuggler ring in Atlanta, Tallow Jones, Wizard of Mysteries, discovers a far more gruesome monster let loose on the streets. Was this killer brought to our world by the dwarves, or is it a homegrown terror? People are being killed by magic, and Tallow finds himself one step behind.

I went into this scared! I have read most of Trevor's books but I have listened to all of them! A new narrator is like Weird Al chosen to do voice work for Darth Vader!

That being said it was like a new pair of boots, put it on at first it was hard to move and rubbed me the wrong way but a few chapters in they were comfy as a second skin (is that comfortable, not sure but sound good like TJ Clark's voice).

I beleive this is second book surpasses the first Tallow Jones book. Now that the characters are developed it opened up a great world for them to roam and cover people in awakenings! It's a very fun read and we have a few new characters to round out the world!

You should definitely give this a listen if for no other reason then to loose your self in a fun tale of manic murder and the wizard of mysteries!

When Charles "Shake" Bouchon, professional wheel man, walks out of prison after a three-year stretch for grand theft auto, he's got only two problems: he's too nice a guy for the life he's led and not nice enough for any other. So he says yes when he's asked to run a simple errand for his former boss and lover, Alexandra Ilandryan, the formidable pakhan of the Armenian mob in Los Angeles.

One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from best-selling and acclaimed author Holly Black.

really cool book reminded me of the an old Anne Rice book, without the the over don adjectives, lengthy descriptions of table settings and over the top sex.

Nice story good twrist and great characters.

Now if they didn't add music to parts of the narration it would have been much better!

I will be honest, I don't like Tahara in this book. She is is so brash, cocky yet whiny. She evolves over time as all characters in Trevor's books do.

This being the second time I have listened to this particular book, I enjoyed it much more knowing what is to come. Who people become in those books, makes it much more palatable.

Don't get me wrong this is a cool book, just probably #14 on my favorite books from Trevor (yep he has put out 14 books as a whole).

James Stark is back from Hell, trailing more trouble in his wake. To return to LA, he had to make a deal with the evil power brokers, Wormwood - an arrangement that came with a catch. While he may be home, Stark isn’t quite himself...because he’s only partially alive. There’s a time limit on his reanimated body, and unless Stark can find the people targeting Wormwood, he will die again - and this time there will be no coming back. Stark knows he can’t find Wormwood’s enemies alone. To succeed, he’s got to enlist the help of new friends.

Stark is back in the land of the living, which all those who stand in his way know DIEING AIN'T MUCH OF.....

Kadrey's slow methodical evolution of Stark continues with rather introspective moments as he enters his own self discovery.... But fear not Sandman Slim fans he still kicks ass and takes names and bleeds a lot.... on everything and nearly every were, he is still rough on clothes.

Another fun ride!

The Landers gang is back for their senior year. Drew has made a marvelous world and well rounded characters that feel so familiar.

we have heard their growth and development though out the series and lost a few along the way. Who will make it to graduation? And what about Globe?

It is all there! If you have heard the first three you know you have to finish, if you haven't grab Year One and enjoy yourself!

After this it's the fina book, the stakes are raised and friends are gone (if you want to wax intellectual and place ones own head firmly in your posterior, it's almost an aligory for life) new lives old flames.... So much to cover in so little time.

It feels like a life time from freshman year at Landers and an eternity till Sr. year but one thing hasn't changed Drew and Kyle have me under a spell and I can't pause I need to devour this storey!!
