Summary

The Jonathan Shade series continues with books 4-6: The Complete Time Travel Trilogy  

Includes:

Anubis Nights (Book 4)  

Hunting a dead sorcerer in ancient Egypt

Sharon shows up with a time god named Chronos, and they send me back to ancient Egypt to stop a dead sorcerer named Henry Winslow from getting the Emerald Tablets of Thoth.

No big deal, right? If I can't stop him, the world I know will only be wiped from the sands of time.

For his murder....

Sunset Specters (Book 5)  

Magic and murder in the Barbary Coast

Chasing a sorcerer through time sucks. Kelly and I find ourselves in 1877 hunting Henry Winslow in San Francisco's Barbary Coast.

That place is crazy. It's filled with gangs, crimps, thieves, cutthroats, prostitutes, magic, and a supernatural threat.

One thing is certain, we're not getting out of here alive.

Wizard’s Nocturne (Book 6)  

A murder in layered time

I'm not a fan of time travel. Especially when it's of the slow variety.

So I find myself in New York City in the roaring 20s where flappers dance to jazz, you can't get a legal drink, and secret societies kill each other for magical dominance.

One cool thing is that I get to meet Esther as a living, breathing woman, but what's not so cool is that my presence could lead to her death.

I have to stop Henry Winslow, who is now at his most powerful, and I have two obstacles who just stepped out of the sands of time: Kelly Chan and her colleague, Jonathan Shade.

Time Travel Trilogy

This second collection of Jonathan Shade books tends to share more traits with the final book in the previous set of three and by this point the author seems to have established his tone fully for them and they have become a bit more of ensemble pieces with the main supporting cast becoming more prominent in the books, this works overall since they had more room to develop over the previous books anyway.

This set of three books has a connected time travel arc as Shade and his friends have to travel back to three separate time periods in order to stop a powerful magician named Henry Winslow from successfully completing a plan that will give him even more power, but is everything as it seems with this person.

Yet again, this narrator has helped to enhance an enjoyable book with another strong performance with a pleasant tone and a distinctive range of voices for the various characters that adds to their depth nicely.

Overall, this is a another good collection of books, being both enjoyable and good value at the same time, but I would recommend reading/listening to the first collection before this as they are both worth reading.

A great series worth the listen/read.

Jonathan is back at it. He and his friends are hunting a man through time. If you like time travel books this series is for you.It also has action, violence, demons, magic, ghosts, and humor. It also has great characters. Everything a person could want in a book. The book do follow an arc so it would be best to start from the beginning...book 1.

Loved it.

This series keeps getting better. These book ( #4-6 ) tell a connected story as Jonathan and his friends hunt a man through time. Yes, these 3 books have an overall time travel arc, and it's one heck of an entertaining tale. The book 4 takes us way back to ancient Egypt, book 5 pumps us forward quite a bit to Old West, and book 6 brings us to the roaring 20s, where we actually get to meet Esther before she became a ghost! It's incredibly entertaining and well worth the 17+ hours of listening time.

Joe Hempel does a fantastic job narrating these books, completely bringing Jonathan and his magical world to life.

Urban Thrillers Con’t

I really enjoy listening to this series (I think the narration helps). I really like some of the characters especially Esther, Jonathan, Kelly, and Rayna but hate Sharon. The book is full of action, violence, magic, demons, ghosts, time surfing etc. with at times humor. I think it would be wise to listen from the start as books carry over. 4th one they go to Egypt and meet with King Tut (Tutankhamun) and his wife (1/2 sister) Ankhesenamun. 5th one I love the scene in Chinatown as they search for Henry Winslow in 1877 enjoyed the ghost Douglas. 6th they continue to search for Winslow but in NYC in 1920s but thought Jonathan was never going to see Esther again and leave her behind. . Recommend this series if you enjoy a quirky urban fantasy and time travel or Dresden series. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you!!

Anubis Nights:Jonathan, his ghost friend, and live friends are split up and sent to different times to find and eliminate 1 person.The joke may be on them...or not.Joe Hempel narrates this trip back to the time of King Tut nicely.
Sunset: The fith in the series is yet another fast paced thriller.Jonathon ShadeIs a PI who can see ghosts,In fact he has one that travels with him with the help of a typewriter key.This story was very touching .
Wizards Noctune:Wow 2 Shades come together to thwart an attempt by a man to have eternal life.A lot of people die..Loved it!“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”Joe Hempel was the perfect narator,as usual.

Overall a great omnibus and Hempel delivers as always. I feel like I enjoyed the first omnibus more though but glad I followed through these books

What an awesome story from start to finish!

This series just keeps on giving and giving, thrills spills and intrigue.
I have absolutely adored listening to this book the characters feel so realistic and the attachments formed become very real. You feel for the characters triumphs and set backs to the point where you become so immersed.

This immersion is further helped by the narration which I cannot fault at all. The characters are presented with such realism and emotion. They are all unique and I couldn't imagine anyone else doing the series now.

I truly hope you pick up this series as it is a blend of Crime Noir/Fnatasy/Adventure and Thriller all rolled into one and I cannot recommend this enough to people.

Magical time travel adventure.

This was my first experience with Jonathan Shade, having missed the first set I was worried I would be lost, however that was not the case. I managed to understand enough of the background to find this trilogy enjoyable. Basically Jonathan and his friends are tasked to travel back to three points in time to stop a wizard from essentially ending the world by achieving immortality and rebirth. They travel to ancient Egypt, the wild west, and 1920s to stop each version of the wizard. Each book is set up in each time. I really enjoyed it and will probably listen again and find the first three as well. The narration was spectacular, Each character was unique and well done.
