Fantastic :-))

Would you consider the audio edition of The Poison Study Short Story Collection to be better than the print version?

I have no idea whether the printed version is better, as I wasn't aware that these brilliant stories were available in print

What other book might you compare The Poison Study Short Story Collection to, and why?

Poison Study, Magic Study and Fire Study, along with the Avry of Kazan novels and also The Black Magician trilogy by Trudi Canavan. The stories all share a mix of wonderful story lines, exciting plot twists and brilliant characters.

Which character – as performed by Gabra Zackman – was your favourite?

While I like Ms Zackman's performance of Yelena, my all time favorite character is definitely Valek. Why she chose to give him a British accent I can't imagine, but it works brilliantly

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

All of it.

Any additional comments?

WHY WHY WHY aren't the other books in this series available. I know that they were at one point, as a friend of mine has the first book in the trilogy Poison Study. She intended to get the other two books, but couldn't find them anywhere. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE reinstate these fantastic books. I for one would definitely buy them, and I can't believe I'm the only one. Given that the new series is being made available, it makes no sense not to release the other books to complete this awesome series.
