Evil pixie, Opal Koboi, is back and she’s more dangerous than ever. This time she doesn’t just want power over the fairy People - this time she wants the humans too.

Another one of Eion's great books. It was another incredible continuation to the series, and somehow I've grown to love these characters even more...

It was hilarious throughout, heartbreaking at times, but most importantly, kept me listening till the very end.

Thor's hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon - the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn't just lost; it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can't retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin.

I was hooked from the start to the very end (that cliffhanger). It was great to see the characters relationships develop and the implication of new ones was perfect. Had a very modern appeal with gender fluid characters. Difficult to explain in word how much I enjoyed it, and I am already impatiently waiting for the next instalment.

This book kept me hooked to the very end, not much left to say: "The perfect end to a perfect trilogy."

In London lies an underground ghost station - empty and unused. Trains don't stop there anymore, but if you look closely on the tunnel walls, you might just spot a grime-covered sign for Brompton Road Station. Tucked away from the hustle of London streets, the station holds a secret - a government training facility for those select few who are unusual. After 18 years, the Wicks, Wakefield and Lynch Institute for the Gifted has started recruiting once again!

For lovers of authors such as Rick Riodern this is a must listen.

The moral dilemmas and the feelings of isolation and desire to be accepted are told in a powerful yet entertaining fashion.

This is a must listen for all of those who want to be sure of an entertaining and fun listen.
