Publisher's Summary

Someone, somewhere, has declared war on Kevin Kichida, and that someone has a long list of magical predators in their Rolodex. The good news is that Kevin lives in a town where Ted Cahill is the new sheriff and old ally of John Charming. The attacks on Kevin seem to be a pattern, and the more John and his new team follow that thread, the deeper they find themselves in a maze of supernatural threats, family secrets, and age-old betrayals. The more John learns, the more convinced he becomes that Kevin Kichida isn't just a victim - he's a sacrifice waiting to happen. And that thread John's following? It's really a fuse....

Good Series ...Great Narration

Any additional comments?

The story rolled right along and was worth the listen, but IMHO not quite as good as the previous installment. I thought the character development was more revealing, the humor not quite as good, and the story lines good, but not great. I really enjoy the narration and main character, the snarkier the better. Sig's character is really explored and I did find myself liking her better. Really good series, wish people would quit comparing everything in this genre to Dresden Files, one of my all time favorites and definitely a gold standard, but this series is good enough to stand on it's own.

WOW.WOW.WOW

Any additional comments?

These stories really do keep getting better and better. The story is unbelievably good and the narration is fabulous!! Books that I can't put down (or stop listening to) are farther in between, but this whole series is a hard to stop listening to. I can't wait for the next one. Thank You Elliott and Roger!

Absolutely Loved This Story!!!

Any additional comments?

There was just so much right with this story.

1. John and Sig finally have some insight on themselves as a couple, and surprisingly we've moved past John physical fixation on her to something that is real and a lot more less shallow.

2. The Japanese Legend twist to the story was unique for me and greatly appreciated.

3. I loved that the person to protect wasn't didn't turn out to be a female. It's usually about the damsel in distress so this was refreshing that it didn't turn out to be that at all.

4. I loved the different type of myths, legends, and shapeshifters that was integrated into the story. Honestly, the Jinn really had me interested and I wanted so much more about her but I truly loved the Japanese tale. Very creatively written and of course the narrator was amazing to bring it to life.

5. Roger Wayne! His narration, character for John in this story had me crushing on John. It was a mixture of his layer back personality that came through his voice that was appealing in this story.

6. For those not as physically attracted to women, you still have to put up with every other woman being described in great detail about how perfect, beautiful, hot every aspect of their body is and of course there are never any hot or attractive men, but it wasn't as annoying as it was in book 1 and 2.

7. An amazing and diverse cast of characters, shifters, and legends in this story truly brought the entertaining factor to an all time high. And, with an incredibly talented narrator like Roger Wayne (jeez, that name just reminds me of a cowboy!) whose outstanding performance brought the story to life for me, I'd say this audio is worth more than 5 stars on the entertainment scale!

I definitely recommend this!

Love this series!!!!

Another imaginative installment in the Charming Pax Arcana series. Some of the characters are developing deeper aspects. Some new players have been introduced.... and some died. It started a bit slower but then it got its momentum going. Enjoyed it.

Brilliant, Witty, and Real - Perfect Story!!!

After hanging out with these characters in the last 2 books, It was awesome to listen to them all come together. The story was unique and interesting, The action, plot, and movement was fast paced and dynamic. I loved how it was centered around Japanese legends and folklore, a departure from what we usually hear in urban fantasy. Never saw the ending coming the way it did and it was a flawless execution. You are truly transported to a different world right along with the characters. The best part, I laughed through the entire book. The comedy, the comedy, the comedy - Loved It!

ELLIOT JAMES HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!

Where does Fearless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The top 3. The impeccable writing style never changes and is inundated with robust amounts of humor as well as drama. It keeps getting better. . . this is as much the narrators praise as well as the author.

What did you like best about this story?

Wow!! Every scene!!! The genre of Japanese (Asian) monsters; the development of a family between Charming and his ragtag group; the simplistic way in which they killed the Djinn (seemed it would have been more elaborate, but so simplified, expressed the power of will and struggle to overcome great odds-this scene became so vivid it was like watching a movie.) But please note, I hated the death of the detective. . . would love more of him. . .

What does Roger Wayne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

EVERYTHING! He is so close to replacing my most favorite of narrators. . . dangerously close!! (on par with Fred Berman, Liam Owen, Chris Aiello, Luke Daniels, and Gildart Jackson, and James Langton (who should have read Hellequin Book 6)!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YESSSSSSSS!!! I TRIED!!!

Any additional comments?

KEEP IT COMING!!! PLEASE HURRY UP AND DOWNLOAD 0.5 and 0.9!

Charmingly delicious!

I love this series of novels by Elliott James!! They are extremely Whitt and entertaining reminding of the writings of Jim Butcher and Kevin Hearne. If you're a fan of either author, then you will love these pax arcana series.

I'm Hooked.

I'm not too much into werewolves and vampires; I mean, it's all been done so much so that I thought no new twist could make it (for lack of a better word) fresh. I'm excited to admit that I was wrong and that the Pax Arcana series has me hooked and looking for more, especially since they keep getting better with every installment.

Now to the narrator, Roger Wayne. He's a perfect fit and has brought all the characters to life for me - I just wish that he was given the correct Japanese pronunciations. Then again, I can't think of any other narrator that has gotten them correct so far, either.

The Charmed Life

This is a fun and entertaining series. I like the characters and the world created. I hate that I have to wait for the next in this series. But, it will be worth the wait.
