Publisher's Summary

From book 1: Paul's been having a bad day, perhaps one of the worst days he's ever had. And now into the middle of all this, his instructor just got drafted by some mystical goddess to help save a world.

As for Paul? Well, he's really not supposed to be there, and if he thought he was having a bad day before all of this, it just got worse, a lot worse. He's now on a one way trip, forced to help a man who despises him while at the mercy of the world's biggest trickster.

From book 2: Coyote has a new task for Paul, one that involves him traveling north hundreds of miles over the post-apocalyptic landscape of California, the place that Paul once called home.

Thankfully, Sarah and Heather have both decided to go with him and between Heather's shooting skills and Sarah's magical ones; Paul thinks he might just live through whatever scheme Coyote has enlisted him in. If he can live through telling the girls just what Coyote's got him carrying in his pack now of course.

At least he's done with Riggs and hopefully won't have to deal with him ever again, nothing could be worse than that after all!

From book 3: Coyote has one final task for Paul, the one that is the whole reason Coyote shanghaied him here in the first place. But what can a single man, without the gifts and benefits of the gods, do against a creature that has ruled in the wastelands for hundreds of years? Besides, destroying Aybem is supposed to be Riggs' job! So just why does Coyote need him to go there too? While it's true that Riggs has finally earned Paul's grudging respect, Paul has no desire to suffer the pain that his nemesis' plans often cause him. And even if he is successful, is this really the last task that Coyote wants of Paul? Or could the trickster god have just a few more things that he needs to have done?

Awesome story!

Unlike most stories there is no long and drawn out sections. From the first sentence to the last, not a dull moment!

Great series at a great value

I was interested after reading the description but a bit iffy on buying into the series when I saw the first book was ~6 hours long, I usually prefer ~8h per credit. But when I saw the trilogy, I knew I had to give it a listen.
I do think the first book was probably the strongest of the series, as it had the most character development among all the characters, not just the protagonist. Additionally the third's pacing is a bit off as it essentially seems to end the series halfway through, with a wrap up mission taking another three hours. However overall I would absolutely recommend the series.

Another excellent series!

Why I put off getting another series by John Van Stry I really don’t know, I am fully invested in the two that are currently coming out on Audible! Anyway I really enjoyed this series and coming in an omnibus edition did spur me to get it right now because of money constraints! But it was more than worth the money, I found the story engrossing and I love the characters.

Its Good

A nicely laid out story. Using american indians for your story is nicely done and represented. Not often are they featured in novels outside of western genres. Though the world is laid out and properly explained, it kinda give me a cliche feel, like i get from similar story plots. Such as: a higher being has chosen someone to save the world and such. He gets the girl/s. Has to overcome adversity and so on. The narrator is ok, he reads it well and clear, but doesn't always deliver the character's emotions or intentions very well. At times, some of them sound robotic or paced like one.

Not bad but the author view of women is offensive

Glad that I was able to purchase as a pack. It was a fairly interesting story but many things require a temporary blindness to the improbability of things, and I can’t say how annoying the authors view on women is realized. Every female character was a nymphomaniac and was literally throwing themselves at the main character. It was disgusting and I can’t see any member of the fairer sex getting very far into these books before abandoning them before reaching the end. John Van Stry needs to get. Female proofreader!
