    Story
    "Perfect, as ever!"

    And Grover Gardner is still the most wonderful narrator. The combo of Lois' words and his voice always makes me feel like the story is creating itself right inside my head

    Story
    "Penric solves a mystery"

    Penric is enjoying a relaxing day fishing with his Shaman friend Inglas, when they are both requested by law man/Locator Oswyl. A temple sorcerer has been found dead from arrow wounds. Who killed her? What happened to her demon? And why?

    Penric, with assistance from Inglas and others, especially Pen's Demon Desdemona ultimately solve the mystery. And I found it an entertaining mystery/fantasy story. But the real deep joy of the story is to watch the evolving relationships between Penric, Desdemona, and all the rest of the very real characters, including the Princess Arch Divine. I have grown to love these characters.

    And, as always, Grover Gardner does a great job of reading the tale. The entire Penric/Desdemona saga is a delight. In internal chronological order, at time of publication this novella comes third, after Penric's Demon and Penric and the Shaman, and before Penric's Mission.

    Story
    "Lively "

    A very lively outing for Penric and Dez. With moments of humor, the return of some characters from older stories, and well developed plot, the story shines. I enjoyed it very much.

    Story
    "Fine fir completists, don’t start series here"

    It’s possible my review might improve if I listen to this again, but not even the fine vocal stylings of Grover Gardner drew me in to this story. I was repeatedly distracted from it. Aside from being not as compelling as I would like, and the solution to the plot mystery being clear early on, the interaction of several demons was a rare event of interest to series readers for character arc/plot.
