"Best one yet!"
Okay, so this has been a fairly serious series, with some fun, quirky characters (think Harry Dresden meets Harry Potter) and there was this moment, for me, when I laughed so hard I needed to take a break. Seriously, there are some pretty good one-liners scattered throughout the series, but there was this one... The epilogue also raised some really interesting questions, so I'm dying for the next book! If you haven't started the Elemental series yet, do so. It's excellent and complicated, without being overwhelming. The voice actor does a great job with the material, so it's definitely worth the credit to listen.
I have really enjoyed this series and hope that the author has a few more stories to tell about Devin. Good work!
"Strong Paranormals defeat a Supervillain"
This is always an odd question for me. I can say that it is an urban fantasy series that I highly recommend to others. I really like it and I am seriously hoping there will be more books in this series!
Oh! There's so many!
Astrid seeming two faced
Finding out all about Langrell's red ball
Rocky and Devon underwater
A shadowwalker (Cretia's) is relieved of his master's control
Felicity helps - that alone was like... whaaat?!
He's just got such a great presence and such an extraordinary voice and he flawlessly moves from one character to the next. I'm impressed.
Devon Sanders & Scooby-gang save the day

Rain Oxford's Elemental Series Book #5: Soul Guard
This was an exceedingly well written book with a lot of great magic, imagery and life. It wasn't my favorite in the series though. Even though it kind of had the fifth element of the soul/spirit...I really missed the elements of earth, air, fire and water setting the undertone of the book.
The super-villain of the series is finally dealt with and we find out how he became who he is. That was definitely a tugs-on-the-heartstrings part of the book that Rain Oxford is great at!
I loved Rocky, the gargoyle familiar of Devon, in this book. Rocky just has this great personality and always acts with such authority and clarity and does it all without hesitation. Everyone should have a Rocky in their life!
We learn even more about Langrell's red ball.
There are some parts that are repeated from book 4 but they are necessary to the story and tie in the new bits of information very well!
Todd Menesses continues to do a great job narrating. I feel like I did when watching Dick Tracy films as a kid.
There's a cliffhanger at the end that can lead into a whole other book and I hope that it will.
I really have enjoyed all of this books in this series and I highly recommend it to others.
Devon, Darwin, Henry and Scott are completely loveable and I will miss listening to them! Fingers crossed for a book 6!
