Publisher's Summary

Joseph Lake doesn’t know who he is or where he came from, but he’s beginning to think that the answer might be the death of him.

By day, Joseph scrubs toilets and fixes broken light fittings, by night he looks into weird stuff: Local hauntings, unexplained disappearances, satanic cabals dancing naked around ancient stone circles.

The usual.

The uncanny calls to him like a beacon, and he follows its signal wherever it leads, hoping that one day it will shine a light on who he really is.

Can Joseph put the pieces together and figure out his identity? And if he does, will he be able to live with who he really is?

Mystery, scares, and fast-paced action collide in this thrilling urban fantasy. Dark Lakes: A Three-Book Collection, combines the first three books in the Dark Lakes series:

  • Magic Eater
  • Blood Stones
  • Past Sins

3 Audible books in One

The MC Joseph Lake is a gentle, unassuming, simple man who just wants to know his past.
Eva Familiar is a Familiar that has a filthy mouth, nothing good to say about Joseph, and a alcoholic. These two together are trying to protect the Lake area and fight the good fight.
I have listened to several other Uncanny Kingdom books and this collection is OK, but not one of the better ones. Narrator does a good job with the characters voices and the entire storyline.

Entertaining Urban Fantasy

It's not often that books are laugh out loud funny but this trilogy achieves the snorts, sniggers and guffaws in droves. By following the antics of the likeable protagonist and his foul mouthed sidekick we are treated to to three thoroughly enjoyable tales of magical mayhem all set against the background of England's Lake District. The humour is very much British so may not appeal to everyone but I personally couldn't get enough of it. Hopefully there will be another trilogy featuring Joseph Lake in the near future.

The narration by Dave Jones was superb. His character voices and delivery was spot on bringing genuine warmth, humour and pathos as needed. The sound quality is crystal clear and the editing is flawless.

All in all, if you need a laugh, you cannot go wrong listening to this trilogy

enjoyed

I loved the narration of Dave Jones.

This is a great listen. Joseph Lake. Joe’s woken up near a lake 10 years ago with no memory of who he is and he’s still trying to find clues and piece things together. We have hauntings, unexplained disappearances, satanic dancing naked around stone circles. A handyman who does not know he is a warlock.


Really enjoyed
