Hugh d'Ambray, Preceptor of the Iron Dogs, Warlord of the Builder of Towers, served only one man. Now his immortal, nearly omnipotent master has cast him aside. Hugh is a shadow of the warrior he was, but when he learns that the Iron Dogs, soldiers who would follow him anywhere, are being hunted down and murdered, he must make a choice: to fade away or to be the leader he was born to be. Hugh knows he must carve a new place for himself and his people, but they have no money, no shelter, and no food, and the necromancers are coming. Fast.

i am a huge fan of the team of Ilona Andrew book. Their stories are fantastic, indepth, intelligent and tests your moral code as to what really matters.

I was so looking forward Hugh story and i was not disappointed in that. I fell in love with the narrator voice but i was disappointed that he couldn't really do the different characters like Renee Raudman can. I had to really concentrate to figure out which characters were speaking especially later in the book. Some of the voices were hard to recognise. This took away from the pure enjoyment of the book.

Apart from this tiny criticism, the book was amazing. 75% of the Narrator voice was heavenly. well worth it

I loved the dynamics. The real life drama of family in each other spaces.
The story had a few holes and the narrator read it sometimes instead of narrating. Yes I know that is what a narrator does - read the book outloud. However there is a slight difference and its hard to explain.
The narrator also did not have clear voices for all characters and sometimes missed the mark for some of the more hilarious hijinks.
However. I really liked the book and u cant wait to read more.

Darn it, a man has his pride and a caribou of a certain majestic presence - all of which could wind up ruined if he abases himself to play a simple-minded reindeer in the town's Christmas parade. No way was he wearing tinsel in his antlers. Like heck was he sporting a red nose and pulling a sleigh. But he changes his mind when he meets the woman in charge of the event.

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods. At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won't ever be forced to present herself to them... Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world - a position that she definitely did not earn.

Barely recovered from her brush with necromancy, Ivy is flung once more into a world of intrigue, adventure, and potential death and disaster. It's not her fault - it just so turns out that she's now the only person in the entire world who can communicate with the dead. And they're a chatty bunch with a list of demands.

When the ghosts offer information about a witch-hating mass murderer in return for Ivy's help, she has no choice but to get involved. She might be getting herself into more trouble than she realizes, though - and that's even before she's dragged to Sunday dinner so...

Loved Helen Harper. She is a brilliant writer.
The book goes through different twists and turns while Rafe and Ivy solve the mystery. Rafe and Ivy are in a more settled place but still they have a lot to learn.
If there is a negative, the story finished without the meeting of certain people. (i am not giving away the story. you have to read/listen to it). If there is a fourth book, I would love for this to happen.
Helen Harper books focus is on the characters lives more outside of the bedroom than in it. I find these books more enjoyable and intelligent reading. She still has a puts in a lot of fun and I can find myself relating to the characters.

I originally chose to listen to this book because I love Tavia Gilbert as a narrator. And she did not disappoint. Tavia did a fantastic job.

The book itself was good. The story line was great but it was just a few little items that brought it down. Chapter 1 was really the most awkward chapter but then it got into a rhythm and the story flowed from there. Plus you can tell a man wrote this book. There is just a few examples where you go that is not how a woman/girl would do that.

It tells a story of a young girl Emily thrust into a completely world. in this new world, where she has lots of raw power. She uses her knowledge of her own world to understand the magic. she also brings brings basic ideas from her old world which starts a chain reaction to improve the new world. in the meantime she is studying like mad and learns combat training as the necromances and other baddies are after her.

The characters are done well. The storyline was good. And narration was well done

Ivy Wilde, the laziest witch in the West, is still entangled with the Hallowed Order of Magical Enlightenment. That's not a bad thing, however, because it gives her plenty of excuses to spend more time with sapphire-eyed Raphael Winter, her supposed nemesis. And when he comes knocking because he needs her to spy on the latest series of Enchantment, she jumps at the chance. Hanging around a film set can't be hard - or dangerous - right?

Let's get one thing straight - Ivy Wilde is not a heroine. In fact she's probably the last witch in the world you'd call if you needed a magical helping hand, regardless of her actual abilities. If it were down to Ivy, she'd spend all day every day on her sofa, where she could watch TV, munch junk food, and talk to her feline familiar to her heart's content. However, when a bureaucratic disaster ends up with Ivy as the victim of a case of mistaken identity, she's yanked very unwillingly into Arcane Branch.

I love the twists and turns. Ivy is a onion. Everytime you understand her, another layer is pulled off. There is a little bit of Ivy in all of us, i think. Rafe also grows and changes.
i can't wait to listen to the next book.
The narrator did a fantastic job. i am going to have to find more of her books to listen too as well

Witches and glitches and testicle-obsessed cats...Oh my. One dilemma down and approximately 74,876,283 to go. I think being the Shifter Whisperer is hard - or Shifter Wanker as I enjoy referring to my new job - but healing wounded Shifters is easy compared to finding and eliminating the lurking freaking evil. Throw in a ghost, a potentially explosive ex-cellmate, a long lost dad and a smokin' hot werewolf who's convinced he's my mate, and suddenly it's party time - from hell. And this is my mission?

Dina DeMille may run the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, but she caters to a very particular kind of guest...the kind that no one on Earth is supposed to know about. Guests like a former intergalactic tyrant with an impressive bounty on her head, the Lord Marshal of a powerful vampire clan, and a displaced-and-superhot werewolf; so don't stand too close, or you may be collateral damage.
