Seven years after the events in Hunters Unlucky, Sauny is leading her own small herd of ferryshaft with Valla as her second in command. When a creasia from Treace's old clutter carries away a live foal, Sauny and Valla chase after him through the arid wastes and slot canyons of the southern mountains. Their task seems relatively straightforward. However, dark secrets lurk in those hills, and the price of rescuing one foal may be higher than anyone imagined.

This is interesting story about a kidnapped young person. I really enjoyed the way the author includes character development and complex relationship dynamics about major life decisions as a side story during the course of trying to get out of a tough spot.

This is a surprisingly pleasant collection of stories for young children. 8+ I would liken this set of stories to the writings of Neil Gaiman.

Cleaver, witty characters who’s bond of friendship sees them through their journeys.

I recommend this as a car ride audiobook or to children for bedtime listening.

When Jessica volunteered as tribute to a sorcerer's court, she knew that sex would be part of her job. However, she did not expect Lord Azrael to “feed” her to his pet incubus on her first day at work. She’s shocked that the incubus - a shape-shifting panther - can take the form of a man. She’s shocked that they have an audience. She’s even more shocked that she likes it. When the show is over, Jessica is sent off to new adventures, but she can’t stop thinking about him.

This was my first adventure into erotic fantasy. It was lovely.

I did not know what to expect, and I ended up loving the intrigue and the plot twists as much as the sex scenes.

Thank you Mistress Lee for your novel. I’m looking forward to the rest…

What a riveting tale of adventure, intrigue and politics. This book takes place as two distinct stories, yet they weave together perfectly.

The first part is suspended in the air in a flying ship, the second a political jostle for power.

I did not see it coming, and now I can't wait to see where it ends...

Thank you Abigail Hilton for another fabulous novel!

In this collection of short stories from the world of Panamindorah, Silveo meets Basil, Silas meets Percy, Anaroo meets Gwain, Gus meets Silas, and Gerard prepares to meet Thessalyn. Dakar and Theseus are tiny children, caught up in the machinations of others; Glossy makes impossibly difficult decisions for herself and her child; and Marlie struggles with the ghosts of her past and present. All of them will find their places in the world, often far from where they started. For the moment, however, they are doing everything for the first time.

Would you listen to Secret Things again? Why?

I have listened to this set of stories several times, and once again today. This is a set of stories from The Guild of the Cowry Catchers series. If you are a fan of the series, it is like hanging out with friends and talking about their histories. Even reliving it through the sounds and music.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Secret Things?

One of the characters is blind. listening from her point of view, you feel equally encumbered. It is a neat sensation that you don't get much in a book. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Which character – as performed by Abigail Hilton – was your favorite?

Probably Gwain was my favorite in this collection, with his booky antics and his curiosity of learning... It was nice to relive his memories from his journal writings.

If you could rename Secret Things, what would you call it?

Perhaps "Learning the Secrets About Wyverns"

Even villains need a hero. Gerard lost his birthright in his small island kingdom when he married the court minstrel. He fled to the only place that offered protection from his father and his vengeful local deity - the service of the High Priestess. Unfortunately, his superior officer, Silveo, takes an instant disliking to Gerard. Silveo has a reputation for cruelty, cunning, and a biting wit. He's a minority species, and rumors claim that he was once an assassin, who clawed his way to power from a childhood of poverty and abuse.

Would you listen to The Guild of the Cowry Catchers again? Why?

This compelling story was exciting, sad and still very interesting and complex. It opens up issues like the nature of love and the desires for control.

What other book might you compare The Guild of the Cowry Catchers to and why?

I would compare this epic with the The Realm of the Elderlings books by Robin Hobb. They both have intrigue and elements of mystery, mixed with lots of action.

What does Abigail Hilton and Full Cast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Each character came to life with their own distinct personalities. I feel my own imagination probably could not imagine the complexity of emotions set up in the tones reached by this production. It felt like a movie running through my mind.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Even the best epic stories have a dark side.
