Summary

The first three books in the Eddie Lancaster series: Warlock for Hire, Warlock Wanted, and Dark Warlock.

My name is Eddie Lancaster. I've outfought vampires, outplanned seers, taken on the fairy kingdom, and even created my own species.

I've been on the run since I was a teenager. I have the unique ability to siphon magic out of anyone and anything. My former mentor wanted me to put my talents to work for her gain. When I refused she murdered my parents. She's been after me ever since.

If you like Jim Butcher, Kevin Hearne, Shayne Silvers, Steve McHugh, Patricia Briggs, Shannon Mayer, or Ben Aaronovitch, you will love the Eddie Lancaster series.

Eddie is becoming more dislikeable

His devil-may-care attitude was amusing in the first book but has become less so in subsequent books.
None the less, a good third book with some reasonable resolutions and a plausible hook into book 4. Definitely worth a read.

I received a free copy of this book and chose to write a review.

Definitely not a good follow-on to Rivers of London

I think this was recommended as like the rivers of London series, but I didn't feel that this story was in the same league, in terms of both character and plot.
I also didn't enjoy the narration, sorry. It felt rather unconvincing and detracted from the story. I actually felt it would be interesting to read the book and see how it compared to how the story comes across with the narrator.

Definitely worth downloading

Having already listened to the first book in this series, I downloaded this omnibus to continue listening to the series. Having listened to another book since reading the first one, I would say I enjoyed books 2 & 3 more than book 1. Not sure why, maybe it was the enforced break or the change of subject matter, but having read 2 I had to go straight onto book 3.

I do think that the narrator is not quite right for this book, his cadence sometimes is jarring and I feel it quite doesn’t flow as it should, but I’m happy to report that it wasn’t bad enough to put me off either listening to all 3 books, or from purchasing any future books.

Entertaining urban fantasy tales which pull the reader along, happily engrossed right through to the end. As I said in my book 1 review, if you like the Dresden Files then give this one a shot, it hits the mark a lot closer than other books that have been similarly recommended.

Very enjoyable

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and unbiased review. So here it is...

I really enjoyed this book, the story was good & very easy to listen to. The narrator is a great fit and has a nice voice that portrays the character very well.

I saw this advertised as a book similar to the Dresden files. That was a big statement and caught my attention as I already have the entire DF series on audible and it’s one of my favourites. I’d say it was a fair assessment and if that’s the sort of book you like then this ian definitely one for you!

Prior to this audible book, I had never listened to this authors work, nor had I heard the narrator before. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for future works from both.
