Publisher's Summary

Part lawman, part tracker and part magician, the Wardens are monster-hunters - tasked with protecting the people from the various, nightmarish creatures that have invaded the world of men.
Despite his personal dislike for the job, Errol Magnus has faithfully carried out the daunting (and singularly dangerous) duties of Warden for their region in place of his missing brother Tom. Truth be told, despite his reluctance in accepting the role, there is no one better suited for it in terms of knowledge, training, and skill.
Arriving home after an extended sojourn in the Badlands, where monsters are as common as blades of grass, Errol longs for just a single day to pass that doesn't require him to put his life in danger. His desire for a respite, however, is complicated by two things: the arrival of a mysterious troupe of performers and the appearance of a bloodthirsty creature that kills its victims in a horribly gruesome fashion.
Now Errol must determine what connection - if any - exists between the troupe and the killings, as well as find a way to stop the monster before the body count goes any higher.

Better than the 1st

Hardman is a really good author and this series was much better with this installment. Narration was really good. Looking forward to the next one.

Good Continuation

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This is part two of the story of the brothers who are tasked with destroying monsters. Errol is still looking for his brother Tom. He is now the Warden until his brother returns. He also finds a love interest. The narrator made me see that spider and her children. That part of the story and the action and battle came to life in a good way. I can see that there will be more stories as Errol grows in knowledge and skills. This was a nice fantasy and well developed. I loved the narrator.

Lure of the Lamia

I really like Kevin's books, so when I saw this I had to get my hand on it and I was not disappointed.

With this authors books you know you will get a good plot with a twist and suspense. This story did remind me a bit of Beowulf, that I read in my teens, which I really liked, so this book did not disappoint me.

I would highly recommend this book!

Exciting Follow up

After the events of Book 1 it seems our new warden( reluctantly) is attempting to recover however the life of a warden barely pauses Errol finds and so the learning experience continues. As he hopes to find out more about his brother Tom still missing he finds out about the other side of the monsters where sometimes it isn't as cut and dry a problem as you would think.
great pace of action, mystery and even a nice dose of humanity rounds this book up well.
Narration as you would expect from Narramore is excellent and comes across well especially in the human moments.
Looking forward to the next in series.
I was gifted this audio and choose to leave a review and as such is my own honest opinion.
