Publisher's Summary

The Jonathan Shade series continues with books 4-6: The Complete Time Travel Trilogy  

Includes:

Anubis Nights (Book 4)  

Hunting a dead sorcerer in ancient Egypt

Sharon shows up with a time god named Chronos, and they send me back to ancient Egypt to stop a dead sorcerer named Henry Winslow from getting the Emerald Tablets of Thoth.

No big deal, right? If I can't stop him, the world I know will only be wiped from the sands of time.

For his murder....

Sunset Specters (Book 5)  

Magic and murder in the Barbary Coast

Chasing a sorcerer through time sucks. Kelly and I find ourselves in 1877 hunting Henry Winslow in San Francisco's Barbary Coast.

That place is crazy. It's filled with gangs, crimps, thieves, cutthroats, prostitutes, magic, and a supernatural threat.

One thing is certain, we're not getting out of here alive.

Wizard’s Nocturne (Book 6)  

A murder in layered time

I'm not a fan of time travel. Especially when it's of the slow variety.

So I find myself in New York City in the roaring 20s where flappers dance to jazz, you can't get a legal drink, and secret societies kill each other for magical dominance.

One cool thing is that I get to meet Esther as a living, breathing woman, but what's not so cool is that my presence could lead to her death.

I have to stop Henry Winslow, who is now at his most powerful, and I have two obstacles who just stepped out of the sands of time: Kelly Chan and her colleague, Jonathan Shade.

Loved it.

This series keeps getting better. These book ( #4-6 ) tell a connected story as Jonathan and his friends hunt a man through time. Yes, these 3 books have an overall time travel arc, and it's one heck of an entertaining tale. The book 4 takes us way back to ancient Egypt, book 5 pumps us forward quite a bit to Old West, and book 6 brings us to the roaring 20s, where we actually get to meet Esther before she became a ghost! It's incredibly entertaining and well worth the 17+ hours of listening time.

Joe Hempel does a fantastic job narrating these books, completely bringing Jonathan and his magical world to life.

Urban Thrillers Con’t

I really enjoy listening to this series (I think the narration helps). I really like some of the characters especially Esther, Jonathan, Kelly, and Rayna but hate Sharon. The book is full of action, violence, magic, demons, ghosts, time surfing etc. with at times humor. I think it would be wise to listen from the start as books carry over. 4th one they go to Egypt and meet with King Tut (Tutankhamun) and his wife (1/2 sister) Ankhesenamun. 5th one I love the scene in Chinatown as they search for Henry Winslow in 1877 enjoyed the ghost Douglas. 6th they continue to search for Winslow but in NYC in 1920s but thought Jonathan was never going to see Esther again and leave her behind. . Recommend this series if you enjoy a quirky urban fantasy and time travel or Dresden series. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you!!

Loved this series!

Do not read this series until you have read the first 3 books! And PAY ATTENTION!!. The last book is chock full of information you will understand only if you paid attention to the first 5 books. That being said this is a complete series I will definitely read again. Gary Jonas has a fantastic imagination that will keep the ready riveted to the book from the start. I love how the characters stay true to who they are and develop based on time and their experiences. I listened to the audio book and I really enjoyed Joe Hempel's narration. He has a fantastic voice that is easy to listen to and his character voices are spot on. I will definitely want to listen to more of his work.

Excellent!

This set of Jonathan Shade audios is every bit as good as the first set. Gary Jonas has created an award winning series.
Once I started listening I couldn't stop! I highly recommend these books, so get ready for a rollercoaster ride to take you beyond time and space in an adventure filled with absolutely everything you could ever want.

As always Joe Hempel does an amazing job narrating.

I received a copy of this audible free and am thrilled to leave my honest reveiw.

Excellent set of books

Let me start by saying I haven't listened to the first 3 books in this series. Even though I started at book four, I didn't feel as though I picked up in the middle of the series. This set was fun, interesting and well-written. They ran together and I would have felt like I was left hanging if I hadn't had all three of them. Jonathan is a bit of a smart ass. I liked that and his jokes made me chuckle several times. I enjoyed these books very much and the narration was fantastic! Now, I will have to get the first three so I find out what I missed.

Timey Wimey Tangles

The adventure continues with more action and heart break. In these three books the story becomes more complicated with timelines converging, twisting and breaking. The narration continues to be excellent though there were a few anomalies in the sound quality.

Great series

The best series are the ones that really pull you in to the story. They make you feel real emotion. They make you want to keep reading because you are so involved with the characters. This is one of books. Even if, at some moments, I thought they were doing something utterly stupid. However, in those moments, I could still understand why they made those choices. Just like the other three books, these are full of action and very enjoyable.

These last three books has the same narrator as the first three. He did a great job as usual. My only complaint would be with the audio only. It seems like its far away or something at certain points. These moments don't last long maybe a few sentences at most every now and the. I'm not sure if that was intentional or not. Either way, it doesn't really take away from the story. I would definitely recommend this series.

I was given this book for free at my request in return for my unbiased opinion.
