Third one's the charm

Another fabulous story of the Athena Club. Listened to it avidly as it made my daily public transport commute (3 hrs a day)bearable. waiting with baited breath for the next :)

Give this a go, I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did!

I have loved listening to the adventures of the Athena Club. This is another thrilling tale with brilliant characterization from the reader, I have no idea how she changes so quickly between them all!

I just wish there was a fourth book!

More Please

This is the latest of the books and as good as the 1st 2.... I do hope there will be more.

Again the introduction of more characters whilst sticking with the old guard.

Really entertaining. (all though like Mary I did feel the need to give Diane a slap once or twice!)
