If you could sum up Magic Marks the Spot in three words, what would they be?
So much silliness!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Her gargoyle was a great addition; love the novelty of a traveling gargoyle.
Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Such a range of wonderfully unique and funny voice makes this story SO much better than when read in the book. Crazy, silly, funny characters are completely experienced when K.K. does them!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not required, you can stop and pick up later without losing out on the enjoyment.
Any additional comments?
Thank you for two of my favorites in one book: Magic and Pirates!

The Audible production narrated by Katherine Kellgren is delightfully dramatic and deliciously funny. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the book alone, but listening to the perfectly over-the-top characterizations enhanced the story greatly. Though this is a middle grades book, any person who enjoys humorous fantasy will likely enjoy this. It uses familiar tropes, but with new and creative variations, and tells a fine yarn along the way. It is appropriately G rated, though with scenes of tension and drama, and a remarkable lack of bumbling idiocy by anyone.
The Kindle edition has minor chapter head illustrations only and I didn't really need it to enjoy the story fully, though it does have an excerpt from the next book at the end.
I would compare this in general feel to the Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom and the less known, but quite enjoyable, My Sparkling Misfortune.
