Fun listen!

Great story, interesting mystery, tons of fun history to boot. I enjoyed Pirate Vishnu very much The story moves along at a good pace, with no boring bits in between. The characters were engaging and entertaining.. It had the right amount of fun, suspense and intrigue. Jaya Jones is a very capable heroine. I am really enjoying this series.

If there is one drawback, it is that the narrator used the same Scottish accent used in Artifact (the first book) for the Irish character. If someone can't do accents well, it's best to avoid them. I kept getting confused as to why the Irish character was speaking with a Scottish accent.

Pirate Vishnu: A Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery,

This was a thrilling Treasure Hunt that Jaya was presented with. Finding a long lost treasure and restoring the reputation of her family's hero were impossible to resist.

I enjoyed the alternating POV(Points of View) between Jaya and her great-granduncle Anand.

While understanding why he did it, I was sad that Lane left Jaya for her own good. I was tickled that he couldn't help but want to protect her afterwards. I loved the way that Jaya put him told him exactly what she thought of his unilateral decision to end their relationship. These two are an entertaining pair.

I really enjoyed the narrator!
