Publisher's Summary

The Secret Histories novels deliver "a terrific, adventurous blend of genres...[and] high-octane heroism", (SFRevu) wrapped up in a thrilling and dangerous supernatural world that only New York Times best-selling author Simon R. Green could dream up....
Call me Drood, Eddie Drood. Some know me as Shaman Bond and most simply don' t want to know me at all. For centuries, my family has been keeping the things that lurk on the darker side of existence as far away as possible from humans like you, without you even knowing we' re there. Unfortunately for us, not everybody appreciates what we Droods do. Recently, I personally managed to survive yet another attempt on my life, but the rest of my relatives weren' t so lucky. My parents are missing in action. My grandfather has been murdered. And the future of my family lies in the iron grasp of the Lady Faire, an incredibly seductive, mysterious, and powerful being. She possesses an ancient object that can save them. I have to steal it from her. Easy enough to say, difficult - and very, very dangerous - to do....

Another win for Eddie and Mollie

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I will always recommend Secret Histories books because they are always great fun. This one is no different. Full of crazy characters and odd problems another caper gets sorted. Starting with a personal tragedy, Eddie must deliver an artifact to save the parents. But it is never that easy for Eddie. The action and obstacles keep piling up until the ending. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is I felt we really should have been at the end of the parental arcs for Eddie and Mollie but no joy. It is still a great listen.
