- The Greatcoats, Book 1
- By: Sebastien de Castell
- Narrated by: Joe Jameson
- Length: 12 hrs and 51 mins
The Greatcoats - legendary heroes, arbiters of justice...or notorious traitors? The Greatcoats are travelling magistrates bringing justice to all...or at least they were, before they watched the Dukes impale their King's head on a spike. Now the land's heroes are reviled as traitors, their Greatcoats in tatters. Facio, Kest and Brasti have been reduced to working as mercenaries, but when they find their employer dead - and are forced to watch as the killer plants evidence framing them for the murder - they realise things are about to get even worse.

I liked the idea of the saints and gods a lot, some really great world building.
took me a while to get behind the characters but once I had I really enjoyed and will definitely be listening to the rest of the series.

Peter Grant is learning magic fast. And it’s just as well - he's already had run-ins with the deadly supernatural children of the Thames and a terrifying killer in Soho. Progression in the police force is less easy, especially when you work in a department of two. A department that doesn't even officially exist. A department that if you did describe it to most people would get you laughed at.
Wonderful story, wonderful narration

a step in the right direction
I nearly lost interest in this series after the 2nd book, but this one rekindled the excitement I felt while listening to the first book.
as ever great voice acting
