Publisher's Summary

Being a necromancer is kinda cool until you wake up half dead in a dumpster.

Cisco Suarez is into something bad. Wanted by police, drenched in the stink of dark magic, and nether creatures coming out of the woodwork. Is resurrection overrated or what?

This box set contains the first three Black Magic Outlaw novels (Dead Man, Shadow Play, and Heart Strings) all at one special omnibus price.

Neil Hellegers is amazing narrater

I honestly don't know if these books would be as good as they are to my ear holes if it was not for Mr. Hellegers. His transition from character to character is just amazing. You can tell when he transitions into another character. The storyline is great. I couldn't predict what was coming next and that is always nice. His writing style is great and the universe he brings us into is unique. It brings mythology and fantasy into a very versatile plot line. 5 Stars all around.

Pretty good urban fantasy

Pros - Overall pretty good series with a unique magic system and interesting bad guys. The main character is strong without being over powered.

Cons - The main character has a lot of internal pity parties which while understandable happens too often. The story isnt boring but it doesnt reveal a lot

I hate the self loathing hero

The MC was supposed to be so badass assassin that has access to a bunch of different kinds of magic. I guess the got lazy cause he only really had one kind of magic shadow and the other magic like his shield was given to him by and enemy. So it's crazy to me that he keep saying he doesn't focuse just on one type and that is why he can be weaker then someone who only uses one type. He is like my friend when we were younger he would always say he had a PlayStation, a Nintendo, and a Saga Dreamcast but when I go to his house I only ever saw the Nintendo. Why cause he only had one the Nintendo.

I also hate the whole when you do something bad it ok but when I some bad to a lesser extent then I'm the worst ever. The MC was responsible for killing someones sister. That person was rightfully upset. but that same person was responsible for make in him kill his mother, father, and sister. also for killing him and getting him turned into a zombie and causing this whole mess the end ultimately with her sister being killed. Now who should be upset really if you said the MC then you won't like this book cause the author thinks it's the other way around.

There is also a whole lot of gun blaming with no resolution. You don't blame the gun for killing some one you blame the person pulling the trigger. The MC is like I was dead and a zombie being controlled I have no memory of it because I wasn't in my body. and their like so you still did I hate you for life.

Also I don't understand his reason for going after the corrupt politician because he's not the most upstanding citizen himself stealing cars and what not so how is he going to throw stones. like he's any better.

so in conclusion the book didn't make a whole lot of sense the character was weak and he has only enemies that he calls friends. oh yeah and everybody hates him. including me.

Could've been great, if only for the voice actor

What did you like best about Black Magic Outlaw, Books 1-3? What did you like least?

I like most the character's (and writer's) familiarity with Miami. I least like the voice actor, who failed to properly modulate his voice to convey emotion in stressful situations. Also, the main character's skillsets do not presipose him toward being a private eye. Yet somehow he can puzzle together unsolved crimes. I breaks the suspension of disbelief

What was one of the most memorable moments of Black Magic Outlaw, Books 1-3?

A vengeful poltergeist pursues the protagonist Cisco Suarez down Miami beach in a T-rex's body formed from nearby trash.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He didn't indicate emotion on the part of the narrator Cisco Suarez to the degree to make him believable.

Was Black Magic Outlaw, Books 1-3 worth the listening time?

No.

Any additional comments?

Give this one a pass. Yeah, it's three books for the price of one, but even then the price isn't worth it. I will be requesting a refund ASAP.

I just can't

This is a diary, not a narrative. I regret buying this with real money. It would've been more acceptable if I used monopoly money, but even then I'd request a refund. With it's "let me take 10 minutes to explain something on the first page" sense of direction and it's first-person injections at every opportunity, I would heavily recommend avoiding this book. It's advertised as "an adult Harry Potter," but it's more like his slower cousin who happened across the word necromancy and tried to use it in a sentence for the first time.
