A stolen artifact. An imminent deadline. A tenacious investigator.  

JB runs a private detective agency, but if business doesn’t pick up soon, he’ll have to close the doors for good. When someone steals Hekate’s chalice, JB and his maverick team jump at the chance to track down the supernatural object. They’re resourceful and determined, but can they outsmart wizards, witches, and daemons before the client’s deadline expires?

Hekate's Chalice

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started listening to this book but the characters pulled me right in. JB takes over the business for his dad and everyone that works there has something "special" about them. I loved the characters, they are humorous and it has a great plot. If all of the books are like this one...the series is going to be a great read!

Easy listen, fun story

This is the second book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I would listen to another. These books each have a complete mystery with a conclusion, but the overall characters and background story are what link the books as a series. Therefore, each can be read as a stand alone but are better rounded together. Nice, easy entertainment.

JB has taken on his father’s detective agency. JB is part elf on his mother’s side, demon on his father’s side and uses that to his advantage to try and return Hekate’s stolen chalice (she is the leader of a local coven of witches). He doesn’t work alone...among his coworkers are a sister and brother pair, and fairy who is working for him as part of her punishment. Their friendly animosity is entertaining.

This is the second book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Elisabeth Lagelee). She narrates with a slower cadence so I found I had to increase the speed to make it regular speaking speed. Despite this, she does very well narrating. She uses different voices for all the characters and adds personality to each one.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

Fantasy mystery story

The story itself was great I really enjoyed it, the narrator on the other hand drove me nuts at times. I just didn't care for her for the most part. At times I felt like this was a children's book.

JB owns a failing investigators office. He is looking to prove his worth and also to make a name for himself that does involve the family. When someone steals Hekate's Chalice he is hired to find it.

The story involves Fairies, Demons, and magic. Hekate’s Chalice is the first volume of the Adept Solutions series. I would love to her more of this series but can't gt past the narrator. A different narrator would be awesome. I may have to read the rest of the series.

Victoria Palmer's Review

Though a story involving demons is not my usual forte, Hekate's Chalice was imaginative and well done. Charmingly narrated by Elisabeth Lagelee. J.B. is a great main character supported by a cast of characters that linger on your mind like old friends. Magically imaginative and well done.

A Good Story Worth Listening To

This is a paranormal PI story. The characters are easy to get to know and like. The story has a good plot and decent buildup. I would have liked it a bit longer but it is overall a good listen. The narrator does well with the character voices but her voice is on the flat side when reading every thing else. I would definitely give a listen to the next book in this series.

short but decent story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a great urban fantasy, PI-type story. The characters were engaging and the story was well paced and entertaining. The narration is pretty decent. She did an ok job giving the various characters their own voice. She was a little monotone, but not so much as to be a problem. Honestly, my biggest complaint is that the book is far too short. At only 3 hours, I just didn't feel like it was enough. I would have liked to have had more time to get into the world Teagan Kearney is building. In summery, it's good, decently narrated, but really short. So, keep that in mind when considering the book.

Good intro to a series.

I have received this book for an honest review because I requested it and I can do that sort of thing.

JB AKA Jean Baptiste Junior has been tasked to search for a chalice that was stolen right under a powerful witch's nose. On top of that he is working cases without his dad headache someone has taken him out.

This case is a case that will make or break his business. JB tries his hardest to figure out who stole the chalice and why. As the story progressed it seemed as though everything that he has been working on, his father's accident and the case seems to start to intertwine with one another.

This book has intrigued and playful at times. There were moments where I wanted to see JB embrace his quarter demon side but he seems to be afraid of it. I don't know what or why he is afraid but I would like that explored in the next book since this is book one of a series. I would also love to see JB interact with his father's side of the family. I think getting to know his demon side is going to be really interesting.

The narrator was great sometimes but then flat at others. When it came to the characters she did a fantastic job but when it just came to narrating the story it fell flat for me.

Good introduction to a new series

Another Urban Fantasy novel centred around the role of Private Investigator would seem to be fairly unoriginal, but it mostly works due to the varied cast which isn't focused on the more usual supernatural creatures. The story is entertaining enough and serves to introduce this cast of characters very well, thus providing a good foundation for future books in the series.

The narrator's tone seemed a little too subdued and probably didn't enhance the overall story as much as possible, but she did do a good job with making the characters distinctive enough.

Overall, a quick and entertaining listen that makes me interested in subsequent books in the series.
