Publisher's Summary

I've got two choices. Join the Undercover Protectorate. Or die.
 

In a world of controlled magic, I’m an Unknown. Deadly power, little control. I’m only alive because I pay a Blood Sorcerer to keep me hidden. But when he comes to collect on the debt I can’t pay, one of his goons slams me with a deadly curse. Suddenly, I’m out of options and out of time.
 

When I’m given a rare chance to join the elite Undercover Protectorate and train at their academy to become an investigator, I have a way to hunt the cure for the curse. They have resources I don’t. Easy, since I’m broke.
 

Seems like a good plan, right? At least, until they tell me Cade will be joining me on my hunt for the Blood Sorcerer. He's an actual Celtic war god - and the hottest guy I’ve ever seen. The catch? I can’t let him know that I’m an Unknown, or I’m out on my ass and deader than Hades.
 

The Valkyrie boxed set contains all five audiobooks in the series full of non-stop action, adventure, magic, and romance. Titles include Undercover Magic, Academy of Magic, Pursuit of Magic, Attack by Magic, and Master of Magic.

"Please press 1 now" - Story Good. Narration meh

I tried. I really really tried. Every.Single.Sentence. that does not have a character speaking has the Same. Exact. Inflection. I listened as much as I could. Then my brain started adding "Please press 1 now" after each sentence. The narrator *does* do a pretty good job with the different voices though I'm not a frequent reviewer (I know, shame shame shame) but I have super high hopes someone who is more important than me can get this re-recorded. Can even be the same narrator...as long as each sentence ending doesn't sound like it was spoken by an automaton.

Not up to par with Hall’s other books

This series was my least favorite of Lindsey Hall’s books. Thankful for her other releases though, they are great.

Enjoyed the fresh adventures

Great magic and adventure. Sometimes there this too many repeating of the same things throughout don’t need repeating.

telegram style reading is off-putting

The story is bundled, so you get a long ride of 5 books back to back, containing magic, realm jumping, chasing for a lost sister and becoming a "god" of some sort.... yeah okay, it's not like there aren't other stories likes this, so I thought I give it a shot as an audiobook. The storyteller, or reader, seems to be used to be either dictating in front of a class or reading a telegram. You constantly get : A. a breathy ending in the sentence, as if to give a sensual note to it... B. a distinct change of tone of the last word in the line, followed by a silence at the end, as if that would be the moment to make the remark "period"or "break" - pronounced word separation, as. it . was. indeed. dictated. to. be .a . telegram. period. break. next.line. this goes on through the entire story in a kind of A-B, A-B reading cadence. It distracts from the content in a very bad way. I'm not trying to be mean here, I know it takes time and effort to do this, but I'm sorry, this story I think would benefit from a different reading style. The story itself isn't a fantastic gem either. I seen better, I seen worse. It's okay, but doesn't standout in a particular point or subject. It could be that I need to read other titles first, in order to know where the characters come from and what their background is, but as it is, I don't feel like the mc changed all that much during the story. Ok so she learned something about herself; about who she is and she developed new and more powers, but that's about it. Oh yeah...and a love interest, which she absolutely does not want, or have time for, so you know she will end up with exactly that/ him/ it. that last thing gives you a nice insight in what to expect; it is all a little bit too predictable. Saving her lost sister, sure, but please don't succeed in book 1 already, ok? We need to go through another 4! Again, not trying to be mean, but the way the end is setup in a couple of the books here, it is just too obvious that the mc will fail and needs to get stronger first before succeeding. The fact you see it coming takes away the excitement you feel or should be building. It's like, "hey, she's gonna fail, he's going to escape in the last second, so why cheer her on?"... better call it quits now, go back to the training and come back with a new plan, eh? the ghost dogs are a nice treat, those drew a couple laughs, but sadly not enough to save the story...
