Summary

Six hundred thirty-seven. That’s the number of children who have been taken in the last 30 years. All taken by one person. He never leaves any evidence. He never leaves witnesses. He leaves only a name: Mr. Panomie. And Panomie is far from human. 

Eddie is hired to solve the case and bring about an end to Panomie's machinations. He delves into a world in which magical creatures are in charge. But Eddie has problems of his own. 

Rachel is in prison, but her curse is fighting to take control of Eddie's mind. And it's getting stronger. Each time Eddie gives in to the dark urges, the curse gains more ground, and he becomes more monstrous. 

With the darkness inside him rapidly growing, he has to figure out a way to cure himself before he becomes worse than Rachel ever was. But it's getting harder to tell the difference between what's him and what's the darkness.

Snarky warlock returns

Eddie Lancaster is not intended to be the most likeable of main characters, but he is an interesting one and more well-rounded than he was in the first book in the series (I haven't yet read the second one), less reliant on the fourth wall breaking that featured so heavily in the first one.

The narrator does a good job of enhancing this book, giving suitably distinctive tones to the main character and supporting cast to help bring them to life that much more.

Overall, the story is an entertaining one in it's own right and challenging for the hero, but there is also a fair amount of world-building that both fleshes out the overall world while also setting things up for subsequent books in the series too.

Eddie is back and he’s bringing the darkness with him

Thoroughly enjoying the Eddie Lancaster books. An exciting addition to the urban fancy genre. Particularly enjoying the whole Neil Gaiman sounding twang to Hannibal Hills voice
Arcane Inc. books are just such fun to read.

Must listen

The performances of the voice actor bought the story to life. The characters in the story were original and made a great change from alot of the heroes in many of the urban fantasy novels. The storyline kept me hooked and looking forward to the next book

Meet Eddie Lancaster, Warlock

The writing style is a little arrogant, very irreverent with a soupçon of good humour to match our central character, Maidstone's Eddie Lancaster. The chap is still learning his craft of being a Warlock and we are taken on wild journeys into his and other worlds to meet, kill or fall in love with other characters, only a few of which are human. Eddie is a great guide, aided by a wonderful narrator, in this strange but very entertaining murder mystery and adventure.

Was Unsure

Let me begin by saying that I was given this book free in exchange for my unbiased opinion. So when I realized this book was volume 3 of a series I was unsure exactly what I should do. I wondered if I should try and read the first two books before reading this one because I was afraid it was a continuous storyline that I might be missing pieces. That was far from the case even though I am sure the other two books have story that lead up to this it was not something I felt I could not read without having read the other two. I enjoyed the characters I enjoy the interaction and the tension and the fairy tale element LOL but I just truly enjoyed the book. The narrator did a nice job of keeping me engaged and I blew through this book before I knew it was even done! LOL I am glad I read it and I will read the other two now.

Another great tale

I was given this book at my request for free but the review is of my own. Eddie is back to deal with Rachael’s curse, a creature taking children, and a new company that wants his talents. Children are being taken without a trace and Eddie gets called to deal with the case finding that there’s a long history. He is fighting the darkness Rachael gave him and trying to win back the girl he cares for. Will Eddie find the creature before more children go missing? Can he ever get rid of the darkness? Another amazing tale.

Dark Warlock

This was a really good book! Eddie,a warlock, is hired to solve the case of over 600 kids who have dissapeared.Hannibal Hills was an excellent choice of narrator to take us on this jaunt into a magical world of imps and goblins. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Such a great series!!!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Ugh, I really wish these books would come out faster! I say that because I have enjoyed them so darn much and they just aren't long enough. Don't get me wrong, each book has been longer, but they're so good I binge listen and they are over in a few short hours and I'm left waiting half a year or more for the next book. I really enjoy how this author makes each book its own. This means you can enjoy them even if you start at a later book. That being said, though, you definitely get so much more if you listen to the previous books first. Great narration, great writing, this is an all around great series I highly recommend!

Yet another great Warlock Tale.

Once again Sean Stone has managed to get Eddy into all kinds of trouble and we get to enjoy watching him get out of it. Hannibal Hills dials in another great performance, keeping the audience simultaneously entranced and entertained. The whole Warlock of Hire series is amazing; this particular entry really puts Eddy through his paces and doesn’t stop for a minute

Love Love Love it!!!!!!!

This is fantastic Urban Fantasy series. This time Eddie teams up again with Ashley to help the police with missing children. Someone is taking children. The only clue is a name. Panomie. But who is Panomie? Over 600 children have been taken over a span of years. This case will lead Eddie an Ashley to the Fae realm chasing Gnomes and Imps. This book kept me very entertained. It is action packed. I just love Eddie. He is bit rough around the edges but he gets the job done. The narrator of this book is fantastic. He does a great job with each voice for each character. I recommend this series if you love The Dresden books. I was gifted this book at my request in exchange for an honest review.

Very Entertaining

This is the third book in the series but the first one I’ve listened to! What a treat it was!!! The story has it all, a dark cursed warlock, gnomes, Imps, a secret paranormal investigation team, a human police investigator mixed up in the middle of all of it. I just loved it. Eddie, well want to say about Eddie, he really is the extreme, kinda sweet one minute and a first rate jerk the next but you can’t help but love him. This was one of the most entertaining books I’ve listened to in quite some time. Hannibal Hills was freaking awesome with the narration. Can’t wait to go back and get the first two to see how this all started
