As Nixie struggles to unite the water witches, the Fae king discovers a spy in his ranks. We're forced to split our focus and our powers between the unrest in Faerie and the rising tensions in Falias. When Nudd's latest gambit puts humanity’s most dangerous weapons into his hands, we can't let anything stand in our way. We'll need help from new contacts and trusted allies if we hope to stop the Fae king's madness.

There is something special when a great writer teams up with a great narrator. This already fantastic book with the huge, nail-biting, cliffhanger at then end really came to life even more for me hearing it for the first time in Damian's voice outside my head.
I've heard there is more to come and I absolutely cannot wait to see how this is concluded.

Everything was going fine for Quinn MacKenna…until she accidentally stole from Nate Temple. She knows how to drink, fight, and steal dangerous magical artifacts - but not for money. For favors. Because all her life she’s wanted only one thing - a secret so dangerous and well-guarded that no one will give it up. A ticket to the Land of the Fae so she can find her dad and finally get some answers about her past.

I really enjoy this branch of the Templeverse. I was a little nervous about how much I would enjoy the audio version since we all have our own idea what characters should sound like especially so when, like Quinn, it is so unique. I an very impressed by the range of the narrator and of course I'm always impressed by the quality of the stories produced by Team Temple.

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

I was delightfully surprised to find how great this book is. The geek culture is strong with this one, beyond just the video game nerds. Narration was spot on in so many nerdy ways and I often found myself giggling about references from my childhood.

Nate Temple has an appointment in Hell. One he can’t reschedule… After recent events, Nate took some much-deserved time off for a little rest and relaxation. But when he finally returns home to attend what should have been a celebration of love, he finds insidious fear infecting the streets of St. Louis. Paranoia. Chaos. Anarchy. It seems every supernatural family in town is sick and tired of Nate and wants to put him in his place. The worst part… all his friends seem to agree.

When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic, rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Yet despite Ludlow's tranquility, there's an undercurrent of danger that lingers...like the graveyard in the woods near the Creeds' home, where generations of children have buried their beloved pets.

Great story. Really nice narration. What got me was the aggressive editing throughout the story. Several times through each chapter words were simply chopped off where you can tell it had been edited. Otherwise I couldn't put it down everything was so good.

Fantastic narration. Fun story line. Love how the author does his own thing and doesn't care about the dolphins opinions, because really why would any of us? I hope there is more to come since this universe makes it so easy to enjoy a good satire.

There's a turning point in every war, but I didn't expect this one to be in my front yard. Allies of the Fae king have moved against the military stationed in Saint Charles. Our unsteady alliances are threatening to fracture, providing the water witches and vampires an opportunity to strike. With losses on both sides, things are far more dire than we realized, and the return of a long-forgotten enemy has made that clear. Thankfully, I know a very grumpy parrot.

It's almost Nate's birthday, so, he can cry if he wants to. That is, if he lives to see it.... Because a lot of people want him dead: his fiancée, his long-lost ancestor, the good wizards, the dark wizards, and.... Look, it's easier to list who doesn't want to kill him. To prevent a shifter-versus-wizard war, Nate steps in to draw a line in the sand, picking a fight with the deadliest magic slingers on the planet... and then he tries to rob them.

Much has been lost in the conflict with the Fae king and his allies, a conflict we hadn't known we were in until one of our own fell at his hand. And while a great Seal between realms may have been rebuilt, dark things slipped through in the chaos, creatures who would overrun this world. Our allies are many. Our enemies are terrible. And someone ate my last chimichanga despite the fact I had clearly marked it with a note that said it was mine.

Great story. Couldn't ask for a better narrator. He really makes every character come to life.
Asher always tells fantastic stories with a huge cast, only you never feel overwhelmed by everyone's stories because they are interwoven so well. Gods, vampires, fairies, and necromancers all fighting to save their little piece of the world.
