Publisher's Summary

How did Everson Croft discover his powers?

Let's go back to the night I turned 13, the night Grandpa filleted my finger with his cane sword.

I can't say what terrified me more, the cold anger in his eyes or the crazy things in his locked study. A talking trunk. Squirming coats. A bookshelf whose titles shifted before my eyes. And one chilling title in particular: Book of Souls.

Ten years later I'm on my way to a Romanian monastery, in search of that lost book. But I'm not the only one. Three others have beaten me to the local village: two researchers and...

Well, I'm not sure who Flor is other than Spanish, secretive, and sexier than a summer dress.

Can I trust her - or any of them? I don't know, but we've got werewolves on our scent, not to mention an ancient curse hanging over the remote ruins.

Getting there and back is going to require serious cooperation. Or serious magic.

Book of Souls is a short prequel that can be listened to before or after Demon Moon (Prof Croft, Book 1).

    "Don't miss this!"

    urban-fantasy, mage, magic, action-adventure, wizard, werewolves

    What fun! I've read Demon Moon, and loved it. This comes before he completes his PhD and becomes a professor. In this one, he learns more about his grandfather and the mysteries surrounding him. He travels to an abandoned monastery in Europe to find the Book of Souls, and then the adventures begin! Don't miss this one!
    I got the audio on the cheap, and James Patrick Cronin is excellent as Prof Croft and all the others!

    "Introduction to the Everson Croft Series"

    I had downloaded Blood Deal when I noticed this book was a prequel to the story and an introduction to the character of Everson Croft. I love the unusual name and really enjoyed this too short introduction. There were twists and turns I didn't expect and Everson is a great down to earth guy with a fun sense of humor. There were some tantalizing tidbits of his family background and I am curious to learn more. Fun, enjoyable book with excellent narration by James Patrick Cronin. He really nailed Croft's easy going tone. His character voices were excellent as well.

    "Love it"

    Read this before you read Demon Moon. I am a person that like things to be in sequence. As soon as I read Demon Moon, the first question I had was how did he get a Demon inside of him? Demon Moon does not give back information the present circumstances of Croft. Croft was immature and very trusting. We see the events that jaded him to people. We learn how he was initiated in the order and what the relationship based upon. It is very informative and yes there is action.

    This is like a young Indiana Jones story.

    "A good background"

    from the first story. This was a fun read, though I recommend reading it after the first one.

    My only gripe is how obvious the plot twist was. Otherwise it was really on point.

    "A great prequel for the series."

    I liked finding the backstory to how th his magical wizard ends up with a crazy slightly demonic rider that I am certain will get Professor Croft into trouble in the future. I enjoyed this book and especially enjoyed the narration adding another dimension to the personality of the characters.

    "I can't decide"

    I definitely didn't struggle to finish this short prequel but I can't decide if I really enjoyed it or if it was just okay. I'll have to mull over it, perhaps listen to the first full book in the series and make my decision after trying a bit more of the series.

    I would suggest trying the first book prior to listening to this prequel, then if you enjoyed it come back to this to get the details of how Prof Croft started his adventures. If you like the main book, I believe you'll enjoy the story here.

    The narrator was quite good, so I can't see any complaints on that part. I just don't think there's enough story here to grab you for the series. More of a background info bite for fans of the series.

    "A perfect prequel for this series."

    Loved it. Loved it. A must for fans of magic and mayhem. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

    Story
    "Too short, even though a prequel"

    James Cronin has a distinctive voice. I though I had accidentally selected a book from the Demon Accord series.

    I think the book was too short, even for a teaser.

    Story
    "An entertaining reinvention of the wheel"

    Listening felt like reading a Dresden novel. I really enjoy those books so I was entertained, but the story, as well as parts of the character were derivative of books I have already read. I would likely buy next books if I caught them on sale for times when my attention is divided.
