Publisher's Summary

A sorcerer seeking immortality
The powerful wizard, Henry Winslow, arrives in 1877 and sets out for the Barbary Coast in San Francisco to steal a bit of life energy from his parents before he can head to the 1920s to complete his immortality ritual.
A former slave with a mission
Douglas Freeman is a former slave with a growing collection of vengeful ghosts, and he's headed for the Barbary Coast to kill the last few men on his list.
Champions out of time
Jonathan Shade and Kelly Chan reunite with Brand, the former Sekutar warrior, and Esther, the ghost who has an unbreakable bond with Shade. They set out for California to stop Winslow. But the Barbary Coast is a dangerous place where life is cheap. Their paths will cross with thieves, cutthroats, crimps, prostitutes, gangs, magic, and a supernatural threat. Time is running out on their mission, and one thing is certain - not everyone is going to get out alive.

More Trouble

This is book number 5. I have really enjoyed this series. Even though this book is a continuation for the same mission and does not end in this book either, it is a great story. It is full of action, humor and surprises. From the ancient Eygpt to the wild west, After leaving Eygptian time Jonathan and Kelly go the 1870's to meet up with Brand and esther. However, as usual there is always trouble. I recommend this book and this series. It reminds me a lot the the Dresden books.. I love the narrator. He really brings the characters to life. I received the audio book free from the narrator for an honest review.

Awesome Actiony Goodness

Apparently the book before this left in a cliff hanger, but I've never read that story before... Yes it was a bit confusing at first to understand what was going on, but by the time I'd thought about possibly not finishing the story it was already sounding so good I couldn't stop. This story was great. There were sad moments, happy moments, and plenty of actiony goodness. Joe Hempel did a wonderful job narrating and this story has made it to where I have to find and read the first 4 stories.

"I'd rather not shoot you, Jonathan"

Any additional comments?

The weird world of Jonathan Shade just keeps getting weirder, and the West was never so wild. Back from ancient Egypt, Jon and Kelly are reunited with their companions, Esher and Brant in a lawless 1877 in their continued quest to stop Winslow and save the world. This is proving to be an exceptionally costly and dangerous enterprise as all does not go well (does it ever?). Could be only time will heal some wounds ...

As always, the narration is superb, with Joe Hempel's adroit voicings of each protagonist such that he becomes each character he assumes at the time. And his fast paced reading brings further excitement and magic to an already excellent story.

I was fortunate in being gifted a copy of Anubis Nights, via Audiobook Boom. My thanks to the right's holder as this is a book in a very enjoyable series, which made me smile, laugh and sometimes be filled with dismay. With great characters, fast paced action, quirky situations and comedy, too. Best if read in series sequence for fullest enjoyment, though not totally essential, this is the second of a time travel trilogy within the Shade listings - and it all just keeps getting better! I am really looking forward to the next installment of Jonathan's complicated life in book six.
