Publisher's Summary

While an ugly war with its neighbouring realm continues to rage, the insulated members of Ruritania’s upper class laugh and dance their way through their superficial lives. Some people, increasingly disillusioned by the pointless conflict, start to consider how the king might be persuaded - or forced - to end it. Meanwhile, an increasing number of items of great value are going missing from those attending these high society gatherings. At whom will the finger of suspicion point? Who can be trusted? What is the reason behind the unexplained spate of deaths at the Zenda Hotel? Who are the mysterious figures who meet in secret in the nearby caves? And what is the real agenda of the sinister Lord Marek Richter? Discover the answers to these questions, and more, in Ruritanian Rogues.

Absolutely Loved It

I absolutely loved this trilogy! The tales have mystery, suspense, danger, and quite a bit of humor. There is an ongoing war, traitors, and enough political machinations to make your head spin. I couldn't feel too harshly toward the "gentleman thief" who nonetheless does the right things when it really counts and peoples' lives are on the line, and you can't help but feel for his put upon friend/manservant. The stories have plenty of surprising twists, and it was fun to try to figure out what was going on and who the villains were ahead of the reveal in the story. I am eager for the next book to see how the story continues on.

I love Jake Urry's narration! In fact, it was listening to the book sample and his voice that made me get the audiobook. He is fantastic at providing individual and varied voices, and perfectly hits the right notes to express the emotions, attitudes, and humor in the story.

I highly recommend this audiobook to everyone. I will certainly be listening to it again.

Amazing Trilogy.

Amazing Trilogy.
I loved the books very much, it took me a little longer to hear them and not because of the length of the books.
Each book in itself is not very long. But the stories were interesting and complex and I loved it very much.
The narrator did a good job.
A great story over all

Excellent

Lots of twists and turns. Intrigue, some humor, a little 'It takes a Thief', a little 'Sherlock Holmes'. and a lot of people who are not what they seem.
The narrator did an excellent job. His voice was pleasant and clear. His characters were so vivid you could just see them in your mind.
All and all a great listen. Will look forward to hearing the next release.

A Looming of Vultures

This was a really good story .There were twists and turns i would have never guessed.Not giving anything away.Loved it!“

A Nest of Vipers

This is exciting and suspenseful right up to the end.Storry writes great stories about the nobility of Ruritania.In this book the murders of a few people can actually undermine an end to war.Vipers indeed!Jake Urry may be my favorite narrator!He has such a pleasant voice.

A Shroud of Darkness
Another suspenseful adventure!The king is dying and a plot is afoot as to who will be next in line.Oh and there may be tiffin.lol As usual Jake Urrry was wonderful as narrator.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

I found the stories to be ho hum and mundane

I was a struggle to keep my attention. On the surface the stories would appear to be interesting, but there really wasn't much meat to them, and where the author tried to put in a few twists, there wasn't enough explanation for them to be fulfilling.

The narrator was fine, but the books were unexciting and didn't hold my interest.

I received a promotional copy of this book and leave this review voluntarily.

GREAT READ!

I really enjoyed this series! The stories are full of suspense, humor and lots of twists and turns. The narration was great and kept me entertained. The author did a great job with the characters and plot. I love that you get 3 stories all in one book! This was my first book by this author but definitely not my last. I look forward to reading more books in this series. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

AWESOME SERIES!!

FUN, EXCITING & SUSPENSUL TRILOGY!
This was such a fun listen, really enjoyed this entire series, really interesting!

What a world the author has created - dangerous, intriguing, and even comical on occasion. War can bring out the best and the worst in people....
When you push them to their limits, it can backfire.

Very well written, I was drawn in and listened to one after the other, until I was done.
Narration was awesome, really enjoyed it!

Of all the crackpot schemes...

Delicious in every way, this triple book of dirty deeds is gloriously written by Richard Storry, a visual and gastric delight providing a colourful background to an amusing story of thefts and double dealing. There is even a recipe for Wilhelm's delectable chocolate Tiffin
The first three titles are included:
- A Looming of Vultures
- A Nest of Vipers
- A Shroud of Darkness.
Set amongst the glitterati of Ruritania, it is so atmospheric it is almost possible to hear the medals clink and jowls tremble. The combining of of the pomposity of the high officials and the titled with humour, as well as the background horror as cloaked figures meet by lantern light to plot murder and mayhem is simply delicious.

If the story alone were not delicious enough, it is read by the superb Jake Urry, whose voice can be both warmly inclusive and simultaneously chilling. He is pace perfect, charismatic, and his portrayal of the various protagonists from the military men to the unhappy Willie are always individually suited. He lifts the story to even greater heights ( or should that be depths?). A superb melding of story and narrator.

A great book to cause both creepy tingles and smiles. My thanks to the rights holder for freely gifting me a complimentary copy, at my request, via Audiobook Boom.- just peep in, eavesdrop the nefarious intrigues - and enjoy.
