Fast paced and at times gruesome book. Smattered with la long love and faithful friends. Add that with a bit of magic and you have a great entertaining book to the very end. Highly recommend this series. Well written by Jim Butcher and the narrator,, James Masters , once again, does a brilliant job.

Good read

This book I enjoyed in manny ways. It had some rather interesting twists. In fact I didn’t quite guess. Who ‘done it’. My only real dislike was the ending, but then as there are quite a few more books in this series it should tie more strings up. All in all even though things were a little unbelievable in this book, I did enjoy it.

Excellent

This is a brilliant start to what promises to be a great series. Can’t wait to listen to the next book . The story of a young orphan boy Fletcher and his journey to becoming a warrior in a magical setting. Lots of spells and demons (though I didn’t find them that way). Not recommended for younger readers. Not Harry Potter lol

Nice romance

I really enjoyed this book and this series. It was lovely to read books that didn’t need gratuitous sex to make for a pleasant read and just a good story as well. Bravo Ms Britton Also well read by Kim Bretton I would definitely recommend this book which is a stand aloe, but also a lovely finalisation to the series.

I chose this book as I wanted to see how time travel was going to be dealt with I found s many bits of this annoying. The woman, Emma, is supposed to be a historian. The fact that she kept throwing in 20th century jargon, when it would obviously make no sense what all to the period she was in, was so annoying. I get she would have maybe done this right at the start, but once she knew where she was ..... I did enjoy the back story of the aunt and sisters. This kept me going, as well as how was the ending going to be dealt with. Probably would have given a rating of 3.5 as 3 would be logo low.

Silver - A great book

I really found this a very good book to listen to. So many secrets in such a small town. Very well written mystery, I can’t wait to read the next book. The narrator, Dorje Swallow, did an excellent job of bringing all the characters to life.

I found this a lovely heart warming story. It did have some sad moments, but there were some very funny humorous bits which balanced the book. In the end I couldn’t stop listening, just to see how everything panned out. The reader was very easy to listen to as well. I would recommend this book for its light romance, the interesting stories of the people that come to and work at the Cafe.

I have really enjoyed all three of these books. This one in particular has been full of action and adventure. I really hope that the author J Estep writes another and follows up on some of the tales that need to be completed. I highly recommend that you read the three books in order as they will make a lot more sense. Love this trilogy thus far.

This is a fun story about a fairy trying to get her wings. She gets mixed up in the life of a “mortal”, with whom she falls in love with. There are villain and unicorns . Lots of laughs and there has to be a wicked villain. This is not a book for children as there is some explicit sex scenes as well.
