She quickly learns, however, that a woman cannot wander the city streets alone without damaging her reputation, and she disguises herself as a mustache-wearing man. During Truthful's dangerous journey, she discovers a crook, an unsuspecting ally, and an evil sorceress - but will she find the emerald?

Clean, fun magical romp
Would you listen to Newt's Emerald again? Why?
I think I would. I loved the narrator's skill of different accents and really getting into the story. Plus the side characters, magical elements and the writing style were very good.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
It was rushed. I do think he needed at least 100 more pages to extend the romance and action of the finale.
Have you listened to any of Faye Adele’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This was my first listen to Faye Adele and I was impressed. She wasn't over dramatic; she played every part, efficient in each accent and gave the story a lot of life and fun.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A missing jewel and evil sorcerers can really make London exciting.
Any additional comments?
Nix truly adapted the regency era writing style perfectly. He always tries something different and I loved seeing a new and different story from him. This is also a very clean story, for those who don't like graphic content in their books.
