Spectator to Musician, The Grimoire Touches All
If you haven’t listened or read Brian Barr yet you are missing out. He has an incredible imagination and his short stories really show off his talent. While all of them are crazy and make you wonder what is going on in Barr’s mind, all of them are little gems. Metal Magic doesn’t disappoint either, especially for anyone who is a rocker. Each story takes the listener through different stages of rocker’s lives and each tell a different story about how the grimoire takes them over. Each one is separate yet tied to the grimoire. All three speak to me in a different way as each is coming from a different aspect in a rock band story. As someone who thought he could make it in a band these stories really grabbed me.
Out of the three stories I have to say the third was my favorite. The whole glam rock and succubus story knocked it out for me. You can read descriptions of each story so I won’t bore you with that. Just want to say that the third one coming from the mindset of a glam rock star hit every expectation I had. Barr nailed down the attitude of what I assume every rock star has and the way the story played out was perfect. As usual with his stories this is a bit over the top but that only makes it that much more fun. Each one is a really fun story and needs to be heard.
Rick Gregory does each story justice. He has a great voice that I thought really shined in the second story. He does all the characters superbly and I’m glad that Barr continues to use him for his stories. The pairing is magical.

Awesome to have all 3 in the same audio book!
I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
So, I listened and reviewed these individually the first time, so was excited/happy to do so for them bundled together. Here are my individual reviews of all three:
Metal Magic - Short, metal-themed, humorous horror story. The narrator was a bit nasal, but I thought he did a good enough job on such a short audio book. I do wish it was a longer because it didn't have enough build up or character development.
Punk Pandemonium - This was a short follow up to Metal Magic, a metal-themed and humorous horror story. Basically, this book has a Punk musician finding the magic book and rearranging the chords to fit his style of music. This results in different effects from the first book which was interesting. For what it is, this is pretty entertaining.
Damned in Glam - This third installment of the Metal Magic series, finds you with a demon summoning rocker who is wreakign havoc. It was neat to follow the premise through different forms of rock/metal music where the results differ with the style of music. It's the longest, and best in my opinion, of the series.
Bundled together, this really worked for me. I thought it made for a more enjoyable experience over listening to them individually. By In large, I think this is due to them being so short. I think this is definitely a short and fun trilogy that is worth checking out.

Great little trilogy
Really enjoyed this trilogy of books; they all link together nicely, are well written and read!
The cover and ‘metal’ and ‘punk’ aren’t something that appealed to me, but if you’re in the same boat, don’t let it put you off as that’s not a real factor in liking the story at all!
Definitely worth a credit and I’m looking forward to listening to more of Brian and Rick in the future!
This is an honest review of a free review copy.
