Wanderers 3: Garden of the Gods
By: Richard Bamberg
Narrated by: Johnny Mack
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I love this series! A Wanderer, a person that died but brought back to life to work for good and has magical powers, and our main guy is sexy and named Rafe. He has an apprentice and it is a woman which it is unusual, her name is Tess. Tess gets her familiar in this book. Rafe's is a Harley Davidson that really is a mythical beast when he shifts. His name is Beast.
Tess and Rafe have to work on stopping a gateway opening to an old world but harder still, they have to come to terms with their feelings for each other. Great series. Love the fantasy, adventure, magic, creatures, and characters.
Love the narrator too! Clear concise voice and makes the emotions ring true. Great voices and makes the story flow naturally. Great performance!

Love this series, it just keeps getting better! Plenty of action, magic, and snark (Rafe), this is a listen that is hard to put down. Revisit old friends, meet new ones, and new enemies. Very well written and very entertaining. Fantastic narrator, he brought the story to life with unique voices for each character and use of tone. I highly recommend giving this series a listen. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

The 3rd book in this series is another strong one with the ongoing story of the last Wanderer, Rafe, and his new apprentice Tess progressing nicely as their adversary, the renegade former Wanderer Rowle continues in his efforts to bring about Ragnarok.
Their latest mission for Verðandi, one of the Norse Fates takes them to Colorado and along the way the party grows as Rafe judges that his apprentice Tess has learned enough to be ready to summon her own familiar, which turns out to be a hippogriff called Maya.
Besides the additional familiar we also meet some new secondary characters who live in the vicinity of this summons of fate, one is an old friend of Rafe's, a native american magician and the other is Tess' aunt (and her wife) who is shocked by her recovery from the injuries that caused Tess to be chosen as a Wanderer and by the knowledge that magic exists. All these new characters helped to further enhance the overall feel of this book's world, particularly Tess' relatives who helped give a mundane perspective on the magic, whereas as Joe was already well aware of it already.
The narrator gave another excellent performance and the change in tone when a chapter was told from the perspective of either Rafe or Tess was nicely enhanced by his performance. The secondary characters and the general narration were also very pleasant and added to the overall story.
Overall, this was another enjoyable installment in this series, but I wouldn't recommend somebody starting with this one as the first two books in the series are also very good and well worth checking out first.
