Summary

Book 8 of the Demon Accords.

College. A time of transition from youth to young adulthood. New lessons, new responsibilities, new distractions. A period of life treasured by most. Unless you happen to attend an institute of higher learning where the bullies are werewolves, the teachers are sadists, and the pretty girls are all deadly. A school like that demands a special kind of student, someone with the skills and power to survive. Someone like Declan O'Carroll.

Wasn't sure I'd like....but DID

Another fun easy read/listen. ...I was worried I wouldn't like it because of the end of HS/1st of college storyline, but I was wrong. I truly enjoyed this story. Declan & his, girl Kaeco, are a very unique pair.. I have like all the books in this series & was genuinely surprised ovr how involved I hav become w/these 2 main characters.

A great story that keeps you interested

What made the experience of listening to College Arcane the most enjoyable?

I liked the part where they played with the golems.

What other book might you compare College Arcane to and why?

I have listened to the whole series and wish they had the last one available

Have you listened to any of James Patrick Cronin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I must hand it to Mr Cronin he does a truely professional job by bringing all the characters to life and I will look forward to more of his works

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Many, both happy and sad the feelings of each lose and the joy of small victories made a very good book

Any additional comments?

Please don't stop writing these books, Well put together story lines and great performances from the reader.

One of the best books I have read!

I was at first like others who started this book. I was unsure whether I would enjoy a book that did not totally focus on Chris and Tanya. It was a great storyline. The ever expanding world of Chris and Tanya is memorizing. Each book has fresh ideas and new storytelling that ultimately lead to Chris and Tanya. I am already getting worried because there are only a few more books in the series. One of my favorite things about reading is when I can immerse myself in a series where the characters and storylines are rich and provide the much needed diversion from life that I seek. Hopefully, more stories are in the works.

Pleasant surprise

I was a little irritated when I got the 1st book Declan was featured in. I thought it would be more of the adventures of the God Hammer. But after listening to it, and this book, I find I enjoy the adventures of young Declan a little bit more than Chris & Tania. So far, a very pleasant surprise!

Good Young Adult Book

I really enjoy this book and I am in my 40s good World enjoyable story a little bit under me as far as maturity but the next book has more adult characters and seems to be a little bit more mature

Enthralling - this 1 got me hooked on John Conroe

I found this book very exciting. I found the character is very interesting, and the dialogue was very well written. James Patrick Cronin was definitely a good narrator. And I am looking for more books that he has narrated.
I like some sci-fi and fantasy, but find that some are just too bizarre. Conroe writes a very good book without getting too weird!

Freshman turmoil

Lots of action in the installment featuring Declan as a freshman at College Arcane. Good story with an new and powerful player in the Demon Accords series, lots of young and new characters. Good break from Chris and Tanya, who do make a few appearances. Narration is spot on as usual.

Perfect way to rekindle my interest.

I bought this book over two years ago and it just sat there. Why? Well it looked like this series was going to crash under it's own weight as I'd not been wowed by Declan previously and Chris was just too powerful for his own good. This book changed my mind. I still think John needs to watch his use of Chris but Declan is as good here as Chris ever was. Nice Dodge John. You once more have my attention.
