Really enjoyable story with plenty of intrigue and great fight scenes.
My only gripe is that I haven’t read the previous books yet (hopefully to change soon!) but this is enough of a standalone story for it not to be needed! :)
Nigel does a fantastic job. He has the ability to tell stories as I imagine the storytellers of old did and really keeps you inbolved. He has great character voices too so you’re never confused as to who is speaking.

Brilliant! Mr Phipps manages to write some of the best and funniest books I’ve come across. Filed to the brim with his trademark snark, wit and sarcasm and overflowing with magic and action. I love how his characters are so self-aware and have no misgivings about their flawed logic! Everything about these books make me smile!
Jeffrey is the perfect narrator to pair with Charles and pulls of the characters brilliantly. He perfectly captures the attitudes and personalities of the characters and has the perfect flow and pacing for all the Scenarios Charles throws at him!
Literally anything by the Phipps-Kafer Partnership Incorporated TM Company is worth handing over all your money. Go buy it now!

Really enjoyed these stories! It’s always a concern that 30hrs May be ‘too long’ if it’s a bit mediocre, but thankfully this turned out to be great and loved every minute. Just the right balance of action, adventure, background, character development... everything you could wish for in a book and more! I can’t wait to find out what happens next and was sorely disappointed to come to the end!
Travis does a great job as storyteller and really brings all the characters to life. Great voices, great pacing and really brings the action and intensity out.
Loved it!

Whether it was the story, the narration or just my attention span, I struggled to connect with this story unfortunately and so kept losing track of what was happening.
There’s plenty of action and adventure to keep you amused, but I found the narration a little too ‘sandy’ without any differentiation between action scenes and just daily ongoings, although he does have some great character voices.

Mr Bray is a fantastic narrator and this is no exception. great character voices, portrays the intensity and action brilliantly and well, he’s just great!
Adding all the rest to my wishlist!

A brilliant listen. Filled to the brim with action, intensity, snark and brilliant quips and one-liners that made me laugh out loud. I really hope there more Sam Cable to come as I thoroughly enjoyed these first 2 books and they’re just so easy to listen to despite everything that goes on in them!!
Mr Bennett’s narration is perfectly suited to this story and has some great character voices to call upon; there’s never any confusion as to which characters speaking and he’s a great storyteller!
I loved this from beginning to end and I did t want to stop listening.

A good steady listen. Tons of nice short stories to listen to, all well written and paced out nicely. Some that a really pretty darn creepy and get you thinking! :)
Really well narrated with a great voice for this setting and I love the use of mild special effects which Nigel has blended into the storytelling. There were a couple of instances where the words seemed drowned out by the effects (perhaps made worse as I’m listening over hands free audio while driving?), but don’t let that put you off!
A really interesting compilation of tales!

Thoroughly enjoyed this series so far. A great fantasy adventure with plenty of action and great characters! I really hope there’s more coming soon and I’d love to see a Shadow War prequel are some point!?
Matt’s narration fits so well with this book. Great voices and pacing throughout; I’m a big fan!

Brilliant! Everything you can ask for in a fantasy novel. Fantastic characters, brilliant fight scenes all set over a traditional murder mystery. My favourite of the 3 books and they’re all good!!
Great narration too. Matt does a brilliant job with getting across the intensity of the situations and has great character voices.
Highly recommend this series to anyone!!
