I first read this book over 10 years ago now and decided it was time for a re-read or listen in this case. It's truly an absolutely excellent book, I've read a lot of books in the mean time and this is even better than I remembered it. Interesting diverse characters, lots of blood, gore, fighting, snark and sarcasm. Plenty of irony and lol moments. Great worldbuilding and an immersive history for the world and the characters.
Bloody awesome, fast paced, unapologetic, self aware and thoroughly enjoyable.
Steven Pacey is an epic narrator too. Listen and enjoy!

The best!

Book 13 in this series and I think its the best yet. Faith has taken her well loved and established characters and given them more layers and depth. Fast paced story, surprises, laughs, action and so much heart. Absolutely love this story and this series.

Another great story in the Witcher universe. Fast paced and another fantastic performance by Peter Kenny the narrator.
These books are politically driven with a lot of characters and different factions still the action is great and gory too.
I have to keep focused when listening because the story does jump ahead quickly at times.
Highly recommended and a very enjoyable listen.

Neil Gaiman does Norse Mythology, two of my favorites. If you love Norse myths reimagined and read by a literary master, read/listen to this book. Bloody brilliant!

Circle of the Moon is excellent. The best Soulwood novel so far. This book has the main plot and at least 6 subplots and also incorporates the plot and subplots from the Jane Yellowyick stories too, that's amazing for an urban fantasy book but adds SO much to the overall novel. i tryluly loved it. Faith Hunter is an awesone author.
Nell just continues to grow into her power, there's more magic and action and we get a deeper look into Rick's history/story.
A fantastic story. Audible narration for this is top notch too.

Another great story

I really enjoyed this book. It was an interesting story and procedural style mystery.
I loved that we got the whole gang back from book 1 and that Nell had considerable growth as a character.
Looking forward to more growth from Nell and the team and maybe some more background and even flashbacks too!
Highly recommended.
