Fantastical journy back in time

Would you consider the audio edition of Curse of the Ancients to be better than the print version?

Although the Narrator brings the book to life it is the same story ,so what kind of question is that?


What about Jack Wallen, Jr.’s performance did you like?

Mr. Wallen has a magical voice that is a delight to hear. He is very good at narrating.He has a wealth of range and is a master at speaking well and clearly.There was never a question of who was speaking. He is very consistent with pitch and tone for each character.I have enjoyed many books that he has narrated. I rally like that he doesn't need soundtracks of ambient noise or music to make a story come to life. His voice is more than enough.

1870’s We follow the kindness act of two boys. James 17 the illegitimate child of Wyatt Earp,& Sarah Johnson a prostitute in the Iowa Territory Brothel Owned by Philler, and Carson 12 his slow-witted friend due to a childhood illness. Minnie was his mom Minnie who also worked at the Brothel.

The boys read about Wyatt’s escapades in the local news paper and would dream of being heroes and finding adventure. The boys would be sent outside for the night till the parties in the Brothel and bar died down. They were bar keeps during the day cleaning up both the bar and brothel waiting room. George the bouncer at the bar liked to spit his chew on the floor for the boys to clean up, George enjoyed making messes at the expenses of the boys.

The boys saved a lone Indian “Crouching bear” from the town drunk Wilson and a group of roughens. The boys fed Crouching Bear and in return, he taught the boys a sure fire way of hunting and they brought back the rabbit they caught to their mother’s. Then told the ladies about their adventures with Crouching bear and how he was cursed by his people for an unfortunate accident.

Crouching Bear had accidentally killed Laughing Crow, the middle son of the chief and a prankster, his last prank cost him his life during a raid on the white man. Due to this incident, Crouching bear was banished from the tribe and was cursed by the spirits and tribe.

Neither the boys or Crouching Bear could have known that their future were intertwined at such depths.

Mr Chuck Buda did a phenomenal job with this book, the story was riveting and the characters were well developed. This was the first of Mr. Buda’s work that I have read. Supernatural Westerns is not my usual read. But I enjoyed it and bought a few of his other books.

I hope this series continues!

When I start a fantasy or paranormal novel I always think: I hope it's not overdone! This is a paranormal shifter story in a historical western setting and I enjoyed it very much. The story is defenitely not overdone as the only supernatural element there is, is an Indian shifting into a bear because of a curse.

During this story I went to several levels of my gamut of emotions, with James, Carson and Chrouching Bear. The characters are developed amazingly and I can't wait to find out what happens to them next. The story also contains several dilemmas and you can see the dilemmas from more than one side. Knowing that James wants to go into his father's footsteps even though he's never met him, I'm sure he'll get there.

Jack Wallen did an exellent narration and was amazing with the voices. I guess that there isn't a voice he can't do. He made the characters come to life in a way that I couldn't put this story down and he was surprisingly dramatic when needed.

I hope this series continues in many books to come!
