I can't say enough good things about this series. The characters are all wonderfully, believably flawed and you fall in love with each in turn. the plot moves at a brisk pace with surprises. High fantasy meets ensemble heist. it is just glorious.

Who would have thought a book of naughty poems by elves could mean the difference between war and peace? But if stealing the precious volume will keep the Republic and the Empire from tearing out each other's throats, rogue soldier Isafesira de Lochenville - "Loch" to friends and foes alike - is willing to do the dishonest honors.

Every book in this series has been delightful with the perfect narrator to bring the characters and the story to life. I have savored every minute of these audiobooks.

I will say the plot mechanations gelt a little too twisty in this book, but they all made sense in the end. The effortless mix of high fantasy elements with wise cracking heist team is just so fun.

After fighting Soul Stealers in Detroit, Khara hoped to return home to find answers in her father's realm. But the land of the dead offers little information, and far too much tragedy. Now cut off from her brothers, and left only with her dark and unreliable companion Oz, Khara must navigate the centuries-old webs of deceit and betrayal, all while eluding the Underworld's most depraved inhabitant. But she soon finds an unexpected ally in her adopted sister Persephone. Together, they endeavor to right a terrible wrong.

The protagonist Cara, is described as being flat and unemotional, which I guess the author carried off successfully. She was completely flat. There was nothing to relate to. she passively progressed through a muddy plot without much reaction. The rest of the characters were similarly two dimensional with no spark. I made it through two books now and I can't tell what the point of the plot was.

If there is anything more dangerous than the Plague itself, it is the journey that awaits those sworn to stop it. Tyrus, the renegade magic-wielder exiled from Kenatos, knows this firsthand. His original mission through the Scourgelands met a tragic end, leaving him as the sole survivor.

I really enjoyed the way the author incorporated religious lore we know into a new and fantastic idealogy. the crusaders and knights and medieval notions of chivalry take on a vibrant feeling when combined with a palpable magic.

Thanks to his relationship with the ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan, Oberon the Irish wolfhound knows trouble when he smells it - and furthermore, he knows he can handle it. When he discovers that a prizewinning poodle has been abducted in Eugene, Oregon, he learns that it's part of a rash of hound abductions all over the Pacific Northwest. Since the police aren't too worried about dogs they assume have run away, Oberon knows it's up to him to track down those hounds and reunite them with their humans. For justice! And gravy!

Luke Daniels is an amazing narrator in his own right, but the way he joyfully goes all in voicing Kevin Hearne's ridiculous fictional dog Oberon is pretty much my favorite thing in audiobook ever.
