Publisher's Summary

A cruise ship crashes suddenly on Liberty Island. All onboard are dead by

their own murderous hands. All but one. What secrets does the lone

survivor harbor within her very soul? And what horrors does she bring?

These are questions only the Green Lama can answer!

Reintroducing the most unique pulp hero ever! In reality, The Green

Lama is Jethro Dumont, a millionaire playboy who spent 10 years in Tibet

and now uses his Buddhist training to pursue justice for those denied it!

Can even the Green Lama, with his mastery of the supernatural and his

radioactive salts, be enough to prevent the coming of...scions?

    "Classic Pulp-Hero Vs. Cthulhoid Pulp-Horros"

    I first discovered the Green Lama through another audio-book 'Green Lama: Mystic Warrior', a collection of shorter stories by various authors, and with the same narrator. I liked it well enough to follow it to 'Scions', and I'm glad I did! Garcia's version of the classic characters is simultaneously true to the 'feel' of the old pulp novels of the 30s,but with some interesting twists and expansions that will engage modern readers,such as lightly touching on social issues like racism and persecution of LGBTQ people.). Fans of H.P. Lovecraft will be pleased by the inclusion of content from his famous Cthulhu Mythos, which I gather continues throughout the series. Once the action gets started (which doesn't take too long) it never stops, and the combination of derring-do, cliffhangers, and gory/horrific imagery kept me up listening past my bedtime. The bad-guys are REALLY bad, and how they pursue their awful goals will likely creep you out. The sound quality is pretty good,and the narrator's voice-acting is excellent : the various characters are distinct with unique voices, and the more intense emotional scenes are handled with vividness without being too over-the-top. My favorite character-portrayals were Caraway (the tough-guy detective), Jean (the actress turned daredevil adventuress), and of course the Lama himself (with a fierce passion for justice simmering under the serene calmness). I plan to listen to the rest of the series as it comes out.
