Publisher's Summary

This omnibus collection includes Days Gone Bad, Wolves and the River of Stone, and Winter's Demon. That's three complete novels of Damian's dark, gritty, and occasionally hilarious urban-fantasy adventures.
Days Gone Bad (Book 1)
My name is Damian Valdis Vesik. I am a necromancer, an ability feared and hated as much as the powers my master and I set ourselves against. We've vanquished many evils, but now something is releasing an old darkness, forcing us to hunt an enemy beyond anything I've faced before. I was already busy enough with vampires, fairies, witches, Watchers, weddings, and ...damn, I need a vacation.
Wolves and the River of Stone (Book 2)
Philip, Zola's boyfriend from 150 years ago, is not nearly as dead as we thought. I really wish he was. Not only has he kidnapped Zola, but he's raising an army to scour humanity from the Earth. Hopefully the local werewolf pack will help. What could possibly go wrong?
Winter's Demon (Book 3)
Some things can never be undone. The horrors I've defeated - or even caused - with my own hands...they are nothing compared to what's coming. Philip Pinkerton has brought his madness upon my family, my own blood. His army of necromancers is on the move, harbingers of a great darkness. I fear the war has begun...and damn, I don't get paid enough for this.

Never a dull moment.

What can i say about these 3 books? They kept me on the edge of my seat, Full of twist and turns. These have it all. Gods, Necromancers, Fairies(fey) of all kinds, demons, ghost, guardians, werewolves and vampires. Good and Evil. The main character is Damien, a necromancer. These books were intense. I hated when it ended. Can't wait to read the next. It reminds me of the Merci Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. I recommend these books if you like her series. I received this bundle free in exchange for an honest review. However, they are worth the money or credit for them.

CLEVER WITTY DIALOG / STRANGE & ELABORATE WORLD

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Wow. Where to begin... First, I absolutely LOVED William Dufris' narration. His voice was perfect for this kind of comically sarcastic dialog. He performed a wide variation of voices and kicked in dialects and accents.

The stories are one rollercoaster ride after another of supernatural disasters waiting to happen. Damian Vesik is a necromancer with friends from every nature of being. With direction from his teacher, he and his unlikely entourage fight those intending to put an end to the world as we know it... all without the human population aware of their existence. The comical banter is very entertaining. The gore level is pretty high but isn't used as a crutch for the story. Book one has no romance. By book two, Damian gets a girlfriend, but the sex is just a paltry bonus.

Eric Asher has a bewildering and astonishing imagination. I mean... a panda demi-God? But he makes everything fit because of Damian's "comme ci, comme ├ža" attitude. In the writing mechanics, I noticed book two had a repeat scenario where only the characters changed. It involves a phone call, a "poet-and-don't-know-it" comment and a black w/3 red stripes van. For a moment I thought my audiobook had skipped back to book one.

What really made the listen(s) for me was the talent of Bill Dufris. He made Damian real. Unfortunately, I never grew any affinity for the other characters, as likable as they were. I could have accepted fewer characters and a closer look into Damian's personal life. But that's my love of raw romance adding it's 2-cents.

Summing it up; if you are a fan of romping fantasy with no holds barred on the improbable, this is a definite winner for you.
A good TWO THUMBS UP!
