Publisher's Summary

When a cruel sorcerer appears in Tropolis, murdering and kidnapping its citizens, how far is private investigator JB Lucerne prepared to go to rid his city of this evildoer? And will that be far enough?

JB’s private-detective agency is successful, even if he can’t say the same for his love life, but when two elven princes turn up and demand he fulfill a blood bond by finding a missing princess, he has no choice but to take the case. 

Heading up an alliance with others provoked by a vindictive sorcerer’s murderous deeds, JB tracks the princess to the blighted Wraithlands. The allies face exploding portals and monstrous shape-shifters, but can they rescue the kidnapped princess in time to prevent her death, which would release havoc on an unsuspecting world?

If you like gripping mysteries interwoven with generous doses of magic and humor, then you’ll love Teagan Kearney’s urban fantasy novella Sorcerous Deeds, the second title in the Adept Solutions series.

COOL PI/URBAN/PARANORMAL FANTASY

This is the first in the series, and by author and narrator, that I've listened to, and it was awesome! There's all kinds of crazy characters, some good and some bad. This sorta reminds me of the show Angel (Buffy spinoff), which I loved! Love the PI/paranormal combo, think it works well. Endless possibilities. Thought the book was well-written and enjoyed the narration also, think it's definitely worth the read/listen/credit!

An Enjoyable Listen

After listening to book 1, I was hoping this one would be better and it was. I enjoyed hearing the continued adventures of JB and his crew. It was a bit longer than the first book and that is a good thing. I also enjoyed that you could listen to this one without having heard or read the first book in this series. The narrator still needs a bit of work when not voicing characters, she still comes across a bit flat but better than in book one. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and have recommended this series to my friends.

Solid PI urban fantasy

Sorcerous Deeds is a solid urban fantasy, focused on a private investigator. He has supernatural powers and investigates supernatural mysteries. The story is good, focusing on a missing daughter who seems to be caught up in a 'romeo and juliet' type situation. There are some of the tropes of the PI genre here but nothing too generic. Not overly gripping, and no major twists and turns in the story, it's a good tale, well told.

A good entry into the genre.

Sorcerous Deeds is the second book in the series, but can be read without any knowledge of the first book (which is how I came to it). The abilities of the characters are explained, and enough background information is given out, without being there just for exposition, to ensure that the relationships between characters are well established. The story is also tied up in this, so it standalone. You don't have to get the books before or after... although I'm sure the author would like you to.

Narration by Elisabeth Lagelee is good. Well paced, easy to follow. she does enough character work to keep everything clean and clear.

Urban Fantasy

Sorcerous Deeds is a well-written urban fantasy about a private investigator with supernatural powers who solves cases within a community of supernatural characters like vampires, werewolves, demons, fairies, elves, etc. It reminds me a of the HBO Series, “True Blood”, in that it has similar supernatural characters living and experiencing situations amidst one another.

The characters are introduced a few at a time, and we learn the details of their situations and supernatural abilities. At first, I had a hard time keeping track of all the characters, but soon I was able to keep track of everyone and follow the storyline without too much effort. The book was well-written, the storyline was coherent and the writing is full of powerful imagery.

I didn’t care much for the narrator-she sounded robotic at times, particularly with certain characters.

Overall, I found this to be an entertaining audiobook. It was an easy and fun listen for anyone craving a bit of harmless fantasy.

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

good, decent narrator, but short

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

As with the first book, this was a pretty solid urban fantasy, PI story. The story and characters were just as engaging but the narration continues to be kind of monotone. This book, too, is quite short. With the dry narration, it felt like by the time I got fully into the story it was over. All in all, it was still entertaining, and I'd be open to the next book in the series.

Easy, uncomplicated listen

The publisher’s summary is good so I won’t elaborate. This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author. Having not read the first book was not an issue. I enjoyed the story. It is an easy listen. I found the story was simple, I would not say the mystery was “gripping”, and the plot and conclusion was uncomplicated. There were no long, drawn out conflicts and no cliffhangers, and it’s easy to see how there will be future books.

This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator and i think Elizabeth Lagelee did a pretty good job with all the characters and the action of the story.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

I found this story to be creative and an easy listen. I had not listened to the first book in the series prior to this one but I did not have a difficult time keeping up with the story.

Good Story

I got this ARC via audiobook boom nd this is my voluntary review. This is book 2 of the series but you are able to understand the concept and know that there is another book coming. There are no cliffhangers. Surprise that an author can write a series and not have those. The story involved incidents from the first book which I had not listened to but could tell that is where they came from and still enjoy this story. This agency is filled with other world creatures and humans working together to solve crimes or apprehend villains. Loved the dynamics between the characters and the secondary characters really made the story. The humor was done very well. The narration was great and kept the suspense and story moving along well. All in all a very good story. Would love to listen to book 1 and am waiting on book 3.

Ridiculous awesome book series

These books are ridiculous in a good way. It’s crazy how fast you can be swept away in these books with JB and his now successful agency. Having love life issues but being called to fill a blood bond promise JB and his team have to find a missing princess. Although not all is perfect on his team with one of his members missing. Will they find the princess? Will they find Jason. Buckle in and enjoy another action packed book.

Sorcerous Deeds
Adept Solutions, Book 2
By: Teagan Kearney
Narrated by: Elisabeth Lagelee
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
If you like vampires, elves, suspense, shape-shifting monsters, and great fantasy then this is for you. It is a small book and just right for a book before bed, when you get that brief time of quiet, or on the beach, or on the plane. I read book one but I think you could read this without reading book one but I think you would enjoy it more by reading book one first.
The narrator was good at performing several voices.

Series progressing nicely

The second instalment in this series builds on the promising introduction of the first book with the author having more time for the plot and overall character development as all the introductions for the main cast were out of the way in the first book. One slight downside is that some of the developments have tend towards the soap opera a little too much, but the more supporting members of the main cast generally got more time spent on them this time so it is building towards a solid ensemble rather than one or two headliners plus others.

The narrator came across as being more comfortable with the style and characters than in the first book, continuing to have a suitably distinctive range of tones for the cast and nicely enhancing the story.

Overall, this is another enjoyable episode in this series, that is a nice quick listen too if you are looking for a change after something longer.

Private Detectives with a few extra powers

I have not read the first in the series but it did not make any difference to my enjoyment of this book and enjoy it I did.

Its short so I listened to it all in one go and loved every character - the author, for me, made them so real that I could imagine them in my head and I was totally drawn into the story so I really felt part of it. It might be short but it has a start middle and ending that are complete in themselves

When I personally look for fiction I want a book I can lose myself in and no have to do any hard work. Everything was there from start to finish.

The narrator was perfect, I could listen to her voice all day - which is so very important in an audiobook - the wrong narrator can totally ruin a book for me.

I was given this book free and asked if I would write an honest review and this is what I have done - if I had found fault I would say so.

I plan to buy the first book in the series now and am grateful to the author for giving me this chance to listen to her work for free - she has made a fan of me, for this series anyway and I see audible have another book of hers available so I will also be buying that one as well.

I honestly and truthfully recommend this book as a relaxing escape.
