Just as the first an amazing bit of writing, this is a audio book you will not want to put down. I'm finding myself wanting to binge listen to this book in the car, on my lunch break in the shower anywhere I can and have blasted through it in a few days

As with the First book you follow Joe a Would be Ritualist... cough Cleric through his trail's, tribulations and skill increases. Battling Monsters and forming friendships.

Just as good as the first book, if you loved the first the second is just as much fun with lough out loud humor. Worth a download

Armed with his grandfather's trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime!

Very much worth a read, this hidden gem is very funny with very colourful and quirky characters. Based on roughly on RPG board games follow Boxy on his adventure to become more powerful.

Yes

Any additional comments?

Only wish is was longer, but don't fear the continuation of Boxy's adventures continue in Volume 2

Would you listen to Split the Party again? Why?

Very enjoyable book, great narration and leaves you wanting more.

What did you like best about this story?

Great Character development and setting you up for the second book in the series. This book is short and could have done with being a few hours longer but does set the scene expertly for the continuing saga

Titan was one of the nation's most loved and respected Heroes, until an infidelity scandal tore his image and family apart. After decades spent out of the limelight, Owen Daniels has decided to take up the mantle of Titan once again to try and make amends for his years away. Unfortunately, the Titan Scandal is still common knowledge, and no Hero team wants such a polarizing figure.

What made the experience of listening to Corpies the most enjoyable?

Great Book - Yes it a spinoff but Titan deserves his own book. You can listen to this book without having read Super Powereds but it does contain a few minor spoilers so read the other books first. Even as a stand alone book it would hold up without being a spinoff. Great Reading and a very enjoyable book

What did you like best about this story?

Strong characters and a great narrator

Timid, socially awkward, and plagued by self-esteem issues, Fred has never been the adventurous sort. One fateful night - different from the night he died, which was more inconvenient than fateful - Fred reconnects with an old friend at his high school reunion. This rekindled relationship sets off a chain of events thrusting him right into the chaos of the parahuman world.

Would you try another book written by Drew Hayes or narrated by Kirby Heyborne?

Yes, the writer is amazing. The stories are very indepth and makes you fall in love or hate with the characters (Based on multiple books not just this one)

Do you think The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Already has and hopefully it will be longer and not leaving you hanging too much

Any additional comments?

This book is a great start to the series, based on other books I felt that this was a longer book cut into chunks. Would have prefered id to had been longer the 8 Hours seems flow nicely but the end seems to be rushed where they cut it to make way for the new book

In this first novel in his epic fantasy masterpiece, Stephen King introduces listeners to one of his most enigmatic heroes, Roland of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting figure, a loner, on a spellbinding journey into good and evil, in a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own.
