Publisher's summary

Get ready for a hilarious fantasy adventure crafted by master storyteller Felicia Day. This epic and captivating audio experience is performed by an incredible ensemble cast including Felicia herself, Wil Wheaton, Sean Astin, LilyPichu, London Hughes, and the incomparable Neil Gaiman as The Narrator.

Once upon a time, in the magical land of San Francisco, there lived a not-so-ordinary girl named Laurel Pettigrew. She was supposed to be the Chosen One. The plan was simple: She would vanquish the great evil Tybus in an epic battle. But destiny had other ideas, and Laurel's performance in the whole heroics department was a colossal flop.

Now, instead of being a legendary hero, Laurel's the resident pariah of the magic realm. And what’s worse, the dark wizard Tybus swooped in, took over the realm, and forced all supernatural creatures to live under his tyrannical rule. He’s even stripped away the magical powers of those who refused to join his wicked cause. Yeah, everyone hates her. Well, everyone except her two roomies—Sybil, the sassiest diva of a fairy, who could throw shade with the flick of a wing. And Frank, the vampire who rocks a bald spot and a serious paunch. They are the real MVPs, the ride-or-die buddies who have her back, no matter how many colossal fails she racks up.

And it’s all about to get even weirder. Along comes Kate, a Normie who somehow knows more about Laurel than Laurel knows about herself. Turns out, she's got some secrets up her sleeve that might just give Laurel a shot at redemption and a chance to rewrite her destiny.

Third Eye is a side-splitting adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Laurel and her ragtag team of misfits must embark on a wild journey to take down Tybus. It's a treacherous path, but they'll have to put their differences aside and work together. Get ready to laugh, gasp, and cheer as they stumble their way toward an epic showdown.

The full cast includes Felicia Day, Neil Gaiman, Christopher Judge, Carolyn Seymour, Laraine Newman, Wil Wheaton, Danny Pudi, Sean Astin, LilyPichu, London Hughes, Alan Tudyk, Nyima Funk, Hudson Yang, Amir Talai, Sean Giambrone, Jade Hykush, Janet Varney, Lila Sage Bromley, Amy Okuda, Phil LaMarr, Steve Agee, Kate Miccuci, Jeff Lewis, Troy Baker, Harvey Guillen, Weird Al Yankovic, Kristian Nairn, and Jonah Ray Rodrigues.

About the Performer

Wil Wheaton loves to tell stories. He’s been doing it his whole life.
By age ten, he had already been acting for three years. In 1986, at age 12, he earned critical acclaim as Gordie Lachance in Rob Reiner’s Stand By Me; at 14, he began his four-year turn as Wesley Crusher on the hit TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation, which led to his portrayal of a fictionalized version of himself on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory.
He currently hosts The Ready Room, the official online hub for all things Star Trek Universe.
An accomplished voice actor, Wil has lent his talents to animated series, including Family Guy, Teen Titans, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Batman: The Brave and the Bold. His video game credits include four installments each of the Grand Theft Auto and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon series, as well as Fallout: New Vegas, DC Universe Online, Broken Age, and I Expect You To Die 2.
His audiobook narration of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list and was one of Goodreads’ 10 Best Narrator and Audiobook Pairings of All Time. He has also lent his voice to titles by John Scalzi, Randall Monroe, Joe Hill, and Bill Gates. Wil’s narrations regularly appear on Audible’s bestseller list.
He has contributed columns to Salon.com, The A.V. Club, The Wall Street Journal, LA Weekly, Playboy, The Washington Post, and the Suicide Girls Newswire.
In his New York Times bestselling Still Just a Geek, an older, somewhat wiser Wil revisited 2004’s Just a Geek with all-new reflections that show just how far he’s come. In this vulnerable, honest memoir about trying and failing and trying again, Wil opens up about love, trauma, tragedy, and confronting the worst parts of himself. Equal parts funny and poignant, Still Just a Geek weighs the folly of youth against the pain of experience—and celebrates all the strange, awful, beautiful adventures in between.
In recent years, Wil has opened up about his CPTSD from surviving childhood abuser and exploitation. He has earned recognition as an outspoken mental health advocate, chronicling his own journey in his blog and as a public speaker for NAMI. His powerful, candid essay about his struggle with chronic depression and anxiety garnered national attention.
Though he keeps trying to retire from on-camera acting, his cameo as The Traveler in Star Trek: Picard’s second season delighted fans, sparking speculation about his character making appearances elsewhere in the Star Trek Universe. Wil was a finalist in the 2023 Celebrity Jeopardy Tournament, where he won 250,000 dollars for the National Women’s Law Center.
Wil lives in Los Angeles with his badass, irrepressible wife Anne, their rescued dog and cat, and five arcade cabinets.

This has to be good, right?! Right?? Right......?

The problem with this book is that it is not a book. Its labeled as an 'audiobook' so that is what I thought it was and definitely what I was expecting. Sadly, it is not a book. It's an audio performance. What does that mean?

It means, that instead of this being a book, it's really like a sitcom television script. So imagine that instead of listening to someone read a book, you just listened to a TV show with your eyes closed. That's what "Third Eye" is all about.

The next biggest issue is that the story is not all that great. They took 'subvert your expectations' to the Nth degree because apparently they thought it was funny. The 'hero' has no self confidence and fails at everything. The sidekicks are generally terrible people that actively thwart the hero and make living with her more miserable, and the whole story just kind of bumbles along. At least it did for a couple of hours. That's as far as I could make it before I found myself actively rooting for the bad guys to show-up and end it all.

I am guessing the overwhelming good reviews are from the fan club.

Oh, and apparently they forgot to edit out the advertisement for the kickstarter or whatever that happens after the first chapter. So if you are not sure if this 'book' is for you, you can presumably find the first chapter floating around online for free.

Over-the-top Fun That Totally Makes Sense

This is so much fun! The whole cast is obviously enjoying the story and narrating it. As a listener, I also enjoy it very much.

The story (and story-telling) has a laugh-out-loud sense of humor. Although the performance is on the high-energy side, and some of the characters are a bit hyper, it works for the story, and the calm and charming narrator, Neil Gaiman, balances it well. The occasional soundtrack is excellent, too.

It's perfect as a long weekend entertainment and/or to go along with a drink.

If you like this book, check out "Good Omens, A Full Cast Production" by Neil Gaiman's, which is also a fun fantasy story with extraordinary performers. If you like the full cast format and the fantasy theme but want something more epic story-wise, check out Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman".

Cutesy and dumb.

I frequently have problems with ensemble performances. One or more voice being extremely annoying. That's tolerable if they're infrequent. This time they were main characters. This was probably because the story was being cutesy and dumb. The combination made be stop before listening to much of the book: I gave the story the benefit of the doubt and gave it 3 instead of 2 stars.

Bottom line was I wouldn't want to be around these characters in real life and the story seemed to be dumb pompous people doing dumb pompous things.

Excellent! Huge heart, many laughs, urban fantasy at its best!

Just what we all need🔥 hilarious, charming, goofy, and ironically heartwarming. Young girl, washed up failed chosen one, cast of great characters, amazing voice acting - like firefly, Buffy the vampire slayer, the guild, Janet evanovich novels, and every favorite urban fantasy rolled up with some Felicia day magic…time to light it up!

10/10 for me. Fun story!

I really enjoyed the story, and I don't normally fall into the fantasy genre, but when I saw it was by Felicia Day. I had to check it out. The story is really fun, Comedic and a bit cheesy at times ( in a good way, of course), but it also has it's serious, heart-felt moments In the story, making it a good balance of the two. The cast performance is what really did it for me. They definitely made it that much more enjoyable, and I was also pleased to find out that Troy Baker, Christopher Judge, and Lily Pichu were a few names I also recognized as casting members. overall, it's solid, and I definitely recommend this one.

A Mind-Expanding Journey with "Third Eye"

Laurel Pettigrew, a not-so-ordinary girl thrust into an extraordinary situation, is relatable and endearing. Her journey from supposed Chosen One to pariah is a rollercoaster of emotions, humor, and heart. It combines a fresh and captivating narrative, well-rounded characters, and phenomenal performance from and extraordinary cast make this one of the most fun experiences to listen to and enjoy.

Not for me

I really wanted to love the story, but just couldn't get into it. I really did enjoy the narrator and the various character voices and acting. The storyline just wasn't for me.

The funniest thing I've read or heard in ages

I adore Felicia Day and have since...Buffy? The Guild? Dr. Horrible? It's hard to say. I couldn't help but pre-order this as a result, even knowing little about it, and I'm so glad I did. This story is fantastic and unique, beautifully performed. I haven't heard an audio book before that's so much like just hearing a staged show. I loved the world and characters, and dearly hope that Felicia carries on with it, turning Third Eye into the first of a series. I've been on the fence for so long about audio books, and if more were like this, I'd have been won over long since.
