In this thrilling conclusion to the Numbers Game Saga, it's been 10 weeks since Treena returned to NORA. The council has rejected her war preparations at every turn, and Dresden is backpedaling on his promises. When he tells everyone the danger has passed and denies there was ever a threat, Treena's secret followers push her to unseat Dresden and take control - something she can't bear to consider now with NORA on the brink of war.

Where does Numbers Raging: Numbers Game Saga, Volume 3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed this series. The characters and world building are so easy to understand and relate to. The world and circumstances are unique. I like it when there are new spins on dystopian stories.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Ruby the most. Her experience, wisdom, and nature were an important part of the story.

Which character – as performed by Stacey Glemboski – was your favorite?

Stacey made each characters voice and manner unique. I love it when I find a narrator that can distinguish so many characters so well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to the first two books in the series again before I started on this one to refresh my memory. I spent a lot of time with these books this week.

Any additional comments?

Thank you, Rebecca and Stacey, for giving me a much-needed escape this week.

Any additional comments?

I loved the Watchers Trilogy and the first two books in this series but I can't even finish this last book as I have completely lost interest. I feel like maybe there wasn't much storyline for this one and all of the annoying matches were just thrown in there as filler? Super disappointing. I really wanted to finish but I am so sick of the constant repetition of Jess and Mason getting matches I'm not willing to wait through anymore of that to see what happens in the end. I hate to give one of my favorite authors this rating but I have to be honest.

Last summer, with the help of demon-killer Stephen Tapper, Raven Smith faced Hell on Earth to stop the demon-apocalypse (or more like, put it on hold). Raven made a deal with the Grand Marquis of Hell: he would not open the gates of hell if she promised not to fall in love with anyone until he returned for her.

You guys! Why would you switch narrators on me like that?

The characters attitudes and attributes were completely changed! I have to go back and listen again after I get the first books narration out of my mind. I looooved the first book. Couldn't wait to start this one. And when I did, the tone, pace and inflections were just completely different. Ughhhh...In the beginning I was over here like "Who the heck is Steven? What did I miss? Why does Andras sound like he has some kind of funky laryngitis? " I am not knocking the narration. I am saying that switching narrators in a series is a terrible thing to do to a listener! I couldn't finish. Will update my review when I start listening again in a week or so.

My name is Landon Hamilton. Once upon a time I was a twenty-three year old security guard, trying to regain my life after spending a year in prison for stealing people's credit card numbers. Now, I'm dead. Okay, I was supposed to be dead. I got killed after all; but a funny thing happened after I had turned the mortal coil...

I enjoy post apocalyptic series (when they don't suck) and this one is really good. I finished the book and was pleasantly surprised to have a teaser for the next book in the series included at the end. After it finished I was all excited to continue where it left off. I went to Audible to purchase the next book but it isn't here. :( I am dying to find out what is happening with Dean, Ryan, and the others! I hope it will be available soon!

What made the experience of listening to A Witch's Path the most enjoyable?

I enjoy the main character and it's fun to carry on with the paranormal creatures.

What did you like best about this story?

Ilike Michelles sassiness.

Have you listened to any of Jeff Hays’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I purchased the first book in this series so I would be up to speed when I started this one. That was my first experience listening to Jeff's narration. I listened to the audio sample and liked the narration and went from there. When I saw a males name as the narrator I thought maybe there was more than one option and I picked a different version to sample. I mean, the sample I listened to was clearly a chics voice... I started the book and was pleasantly pleased to find out it really was a male narrator and he performed Michelles voice really really good! The masculine characters were also clearly masculine. I am rather particular about listening to stories that have female characters performed by females. I don't like to hear a story with a female lead character ruined with a deep male voice that goes all high pitched as if women really sound like that and overuse inflection when we talk. This is probably the first time (and I have over 500 audiobooks) that I have enjoyed a female character narrated by a man. He's awesome.
