You see plenty of strange things when you're a PI in Las Vegas, but even that couldn't prepare ex-cop Robert Hoskins for what was to come. At first he couldn't believe that all those stories he'd been told as a child were true. But hearing that the fae had taken the casinos over from the mob was something else. Elves, dwarves, werewolves and faeries were just the beginning and battling dark mages, the opening act.
Having banished his enemy to the cold hell of Tartarus, he'll now have to travel to the fae lands to claim his birthright. Along the way, and after, there's demons and dragons to fight and a trip down the river Styx to the gates of Hades itself is on the playlist if he'll want to defeat the dark fae's minions and undo an ancient curse.
Sin City will never be the same.

Lots of action in this second installment of the Vegas Fae stories as Robert learns more about his history and kingdom. Brilliantly written, well narrated, this will leave you wanting more.
"Great story and performance, not great recording"
The performance and story are very good but this was recorded in a room with way too much echo. It became distracting and made it hard to listen to. I thought perhaps the high quality version might be better but no dice.
"The story was great the audio quantity meh"
I am really enjoying the tale of Robert.
This recording has a hall like effect throughout the reading. The narrator does a good job it is perfectly understandable but not up to the quality I am used to from audible books.
"what a shame"
Yes. In fact the first book in the Vegas Faeries series was very enjoyable. The narrator's voice in the first book was itself a great experience, with many tones and accents unique to each character.
I can't assess the story in this format, the poor sound quality detracts and distracts too much.
Andrew Troth was not the problem, the echoing, 'huge room' tinny sound of the audio was. Terribly sad, as in the first book the narrator was an enhancement to the book, but with the audio quality so poor that was removed from the experience.
I will have to go read it instead of listen to it.
Does no one check the recording before releasing it to sale?
"Horrible Audio, couldn't get to the story"
I loved the first book but this one needs to be removed from Audible until it's re-recorded properly. Sounds like it was recorded in a phone booth.
"The audio quality is pretty bad"
The book yes. This version of recording no.
Hard to say I liked the way the story blended well with the first book and how he not a know it all.
The audio quality sucked so bad I had to stop listening to the book so I could come back later and finish it. If I have to strain to listen to a book then will most likely not finish listening to it.
"Grate narrator, good book, bad audio"
Not an bad book, but the audio has to much treb, and nearly no bass. The book almost sounds like it was record on a cellphone though I do like the narrator.
"poor audio quality"
The audio sounds like the performance was recorded through a tube. The reader does a decent job with different characters but has an odd cadence to his speech which is off putting at first. You get used to it and the overall read doesn't suffer too much. Reading the next book in the series is almost required for the flow of these stories. I almost suggest having all three books before starting these reads.
"Terrible Audio Quality"
I'm only 15 minutes in and the audio quality is like something a record it on my laptop…this narrator is great and his book is great but what the heck? What happened from the first book to this one?
"Good book, horrible recording"
The recording of this book is the worst I have ever heard. It sounded extremely tinny. Very low budget. I seriously considered returning the book after the first chapter. I did like the story. The narrator was fine, but the recording quality ruined it for me. I would suggest skipping the audio book & just reading the book.
"Worst audio of over 100 books "read"."
Introductory volume was 5 star. What happened in sexual? The audio sounded like coming from inside a box. Echo, booming, annoying. Narration stilted. Character names were obtuse (e.g. Siegfried, Sendi, Diantha, Gerta), except for talking dogs--Charlie and Sophia. Muddled mythologies from various countries. No real character development. Plot vapid. Fixation on fairy's breasts. Confession--I quit after chapter 12. Couldn't take it any more.
