Part 2 of the Hellequin Chronicles, continues the story of Nathan Garrett.

Nate, a sorcerer born in the dark ages, who formerly worked for Merlin but now follows his own path, has a secret, a secret from his former life that will set him on a new journey when it's finally revealed!

The Hellequin Chronicles are an addictive listen, the performances really grab you immediately, that's because of the fully fleshed out characters and a totally page turning storyline.

Steve McHugh is a wizard of a storyteller, you'll be hooked on his spellbinding world!

This is more like a chapter than a novella and a short chapter at that.

A dull predictable story that thankfully reaches its obvious conclusion very quickly!

Lee Child cannot be so short of cash that he actually published this!

Another great story about John Milton aka Smith, reintroducing characters from a previous book and bringing their story together with an older and wiser Million to create a very good read (listen), perfectly performed as usual David Thorpe

A real page turner if that's the correct term when reviewing an audiobook.

As usual this John Milton story doesn't disappoint, in a globe trotting tale we get more details of Group 15, Control and its members both past and present, in a well crafted story of betrayal, love and vengeance, you'll find you can't put it down!

Enjoy!

I'll be honest I struggled right at the beginning whilst getting to know the new characters but I kept on and I'm so grateful I did, this book easily maintained the quality of Steve's Helliquin chronicles and takes the stories to both new and also familiar places !

I won't go into the story as I hate spoilers but I will say you'll kick yourself later if you don't read/listen to this book!

A couple of good stories but sadly not enough to make this a book actually worth paying for!

Enthralling epic story of desire, ambition, intrigue and treachery, the characters are fully rounded, the period fully realised and you're drawn into this epic of a story !

The 3rd of a great 4 book series (so far), perfectly performed and highly recommend, I'm really looking forward to a new book!

Struggled to get through this audio book, the narration just didn't do it for me and apart from the Jim Butcher story, I was hard pressed not to skip forward to the next story! I felt that most of the stories were aimed at the ladies, with romantic liasons with Vampires, the undead etc!

Not for me!

Douglas Reeman at his best!

Douglas Reeman is a master at bringing to life the Royal Navy at war, he draws the listener or reader into the triumphs and tragedy of the war at sea!

His characters are believable and you really get a sense of the life and times they are living through.

I would be remiss if I also didn't mention his ability to bring the ships to life, they are as much a character in the story as the people who serve in them!

The listener may recognise aspects of the story that mirror that of the famous Royal Navy Battleship HMS Warspite , her story has been told in numerous books but I'd recommend the one simply titled WARSPITE!

If you like a good sea story with full, believable characters, you'll enjoy this book!
