This series keeps getting better. These book ( #4-6 ) tell a connected story as Jonathan and his friends hunt a man through time. Yes, these 3 books have an overall time travel arc, and it's one heck of an entertaining tale. The book 4 takes us way back to ancient Egypt, book 5 pumps us forward quite a bit to Old West, and book 6 brings us to the roaring 20s, where we actually get to meet Esther before she became a ghost! It's incredibly entertaining and well worth the 17+ hours of listening time.
Joe Hempel does a fantastic job narrating these books, completely bringing Jonathan and his magical world to life.

This second collection of Jonathan Shade books tends to share more traits with the final book in the previous set of three and by this point the author seems to have established his tone fully for them and they have become a bit more of ensemble pieces with the main supporting cast becoming more prominent in the books, this works overall since they had more room to develop over the previous books anyway.
This set of three books has a connected time travel arc as Shade and his friends have to travel back to three separate time periods in order to stop a powerful magician named Henry Winslow from successfully completing a plan that will give him even more power, but is everything as it seems with this person.
Yet again, this narrator has helped to enhance an enjoyable book with another strong performance with a pleasant tone and a distinctive range of voices for the various characters that adds to their depth nicely.
Overall, this is a another good collection of books, being both enjoyable and good value at the same time, but I would recommend reading/listening to the first collection before this as they are both worth reading.
