Publisher's Summary

No guts, no glory.  

Being one of the four horsemen sucks. The hours are long, the pay is crap, and every god or monster you meet wants to kill you.  

For Lazarus Kerrigan, professional necromancer, even helping the police search for some missing internal organs is a welcome relief. That is, until his ex-girlfriend shows up in the employ of an ancient Egyptian deity, and a faerie queen makes him an offer he can't refuse.  

When Laz finds himself pulled into a criminal underworld where human souls are traded like currency, things just go from bad to worse. Unfortunately, his soul might just be worth its weight in gold.

Love the fantasy, wit, and characters!

Organ Grind by E.A. Copen and narrated by Travis Baldree is book two in the series but I am already so invested emotionally in this series. I absolutely love the characters, the interplay between the characters, the unpredictable plot, the fantastic fantasy, and great action and emotions! This is full of witty dialogue, humor, suspense, and unique creatures.
Travis Baldree is super brilliant making sure the characters all have voices that match their personalities. He is awesome! I can't wait for the next book!

An awesome journey into what lurks in the shadows

- Josh here

Another journey into the world of Lazarus and The Shadow Court. Man, what a fun ride this series is. Once again, the depth put forth for each character really drew me in. Of particular interest in this entry, Darius and The Baron continue to be favorite characters of mine and I am anxious to see what the future has in store for Darius as he tries to go legit.

All of that said, how can anyone say that sausage is better than bacon? Bacon is the perfect food. But hey, as Liz said when I posted to her author page, the characters views do not necessarily represent her own. Plus, Lazarus is an otherwise awesome character so I can forgive that one viewpoint, haha. Also, listening to the description of Jolene and her smile as she was waiting for hot dogs, BAM! Right in the feels.

Travis Baldree did a fantastic job with narration as he did with Death Rites. Needless to say, I cannot wait for the next book to be released.

-------

This is still a pretty good series. It probably doesn’t help that I went from Quincy Harker book 3 to this one given there are a lot of similarities between the two series’. I love the narrator from that series and he always makes me think of Travis Baldree from this one.

I really love Travis Baldree; he’s definitely a natural when it comes to narrating. Some of his accents are out of this world. Because of his accents, it makes it easier (in my mind) to imagine what the character looks like…think of the Baron. He sounds like a cool, interesting-looking guy. If you’ve seen American Horror, I think it was the witch season, the voodoo guy is how I imagine the Baron looking. The suit maker was also an interesting character, both with how he was described as well as his voice/accent. I loved him.

One thing I’ve noticed is that the day/night before Lazarus is confronted with a case or big issue, he’s unable to sleep, so a good majority of the story is him talking about not having slept in so long and being really tired.

On to book 3

Denial ain't just a river in Egypt

After losing his girlfriend and becoming the pale horseman Laz went on a bender and when he surfaced New Orleans was under siege. It will take all he's got to put the town back together. Great series. Laz is like Dresden with worse luck.

INTERESTING STORYLINE

Enjoyable. The problems faced by the protagonist is challenging though interesting. The flows smoothly throughout and keeps me entertained. Travis Baldree is an excellent narrator and he brings the characters to life. Well written by E A Cohen and I am looking forward to the next book.

Protagonist leaves a lot to be desired

This may be my own preference but I just can't stand the protagonist in this series. He comes off as an arrogant jerk with absolutely nothing to back it up. He says himself early in the series that he is pretty much garbage in a fight and then runs around constantly getting into fights he almost universally loses and then has to be saved by the slightly more competent people around him. And rather than learn from any of this he just charges in, fails, gets rescued by the people around him, then acts like a complete jerk about the whole thing. He has the attention span of a mentally handicapped gnat. Somehow repeatedly forgetting he is in a life or death situation only to space out at a critical juncture. Then he gets a one trick pony superpower that would be kinda cool but it requires the person using it to be worth more than a damp rag in a fight to be even sort of useful. I ended up rooting for the bad guys as they came off as far more likable than the main protagonist.
