Publisher's Summary

Ian Black is an illusionist with a talent for keeping secrets. College student Rayne Bevan has a gift for uncovering them. She suspects that the popular performer's skills extend beyond the stage and that he's the area's mysterious and elusive defender of the innocent. In her efforts to uncover the truth, Rayne is swept into the hidden world of the Weir, a magical race who struggle to prevent Earth from self-destructing. Her inquiries expose Ian to those who would kill for his connection to the planet, and as he fights to keep Rayne safe, they discover a force behind the Weir's raging civil war - a traitor bent on launching Earth's armageddon.

Magic, adventure, action, touch of romance

Fade to Black
The Weir Chronicles, Book 1
By: Sue Duff
Narrated by: Christopher J Mayer
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I really liked this paranormal book about an illusionist, but his secret is that they are not illusions. He does magic. Then off stage he does help those in need. Unfortunately, a nosy gal is on to him and has figured out he is the one helping people. She didn't know how deep things really went until she started poking around.
A very good and exciting book with fantasy, magic, action, adventure, danger, suspense, and a touch of romance thrown in too. A great story.
The narrator made the book really "POP". Not only could he do all the strange voices but he had to do several women's voices and many of them with foreign accents. LOL. He did them perfect and I didn't stop to think at the time that it was a man doing the voices. It was only later I thought how hard that must have been. Great job.

Epic concept! But confusing a first...

This book series has the potential to be epic. But like a jet fighter being launched from the catapult of an aircraft carrier, it thrusts the reader too quickly into the thick - a grand struggle that has been occurring for centuries between two races of super humans.

The beginning of the book led me to believe this was a new take on a super hero in a gritty city. But as the plot started to unfold, the scope of the book changed and expanded drastically. No longer was this story about an illusionist with real powers that used his abilities to fight crime, but there was a huge war going on in the background!

New characters were introduced so fast that I could not keep track initially who was who and what part they were playing in the story. Strange words were introduced. Duok? Pure? Saar? Were these titles or ranks? No translation was offered to what they meant. Was a Saar a general? A prince? A sergeant? We should have known up front, because every time they were used, a small part of my CPU spun off a processing thread trying to figure it out, slightly distracting me and taking me out of the story.

Once that bit of culture shock was overcome, it was easy to settle into the story. The war between races became clear and the book started to feel like a comfortable sweater. Chapters are bite-sized chunks that fit easily into my driving commute times.

Christoper Mayer did a great job narrating this story. His production is professional grade. His attention to detail is fantastic, with no flaws whatsoever. His voice is unique, and followers of his work should have no problem recognizing his voice in other titles.

This audio book was gifted to me by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.
