Owl and the electric samurai - Kristi Charish

The International Archaeology Association (IAA) is responsible for keeping all things supernatural under wraps. They’re also responsible for ruining the promising archaeology career of Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl.

Needless to say, Owl’s still a little sore about that.

Just to keep Owl’s life lively, the IAA has opened a bounty on the two designers of World Quest, the online RPG that is much, much more than it seems. Owl needs to locate the notorious gaming duo before the other mercenaries do. But finding the gamers won’t be easy since every clue points to them hiding out in the legendary lost city of Shangri-La. Not to mention that the last time Owl and the game designers spoke, their conversation didn’t exactly end on the best note…

Meanwhile, undercurrents of supernatural politics are running amok in Tokyo, dragging Owl and her friends into a deadly game of wits with an opponent who calls himself the Electric Samurai. The cost of losing? All-out civil war between two powerful supernatural factions.

All in all, just another great day on the job.

My thoughts:
I listened to book 1 on audio, then I read book 2, and now I am back to audio and I guess  because I started it on audio I just prefer the audio. I need those voices.

Owl does not have it easy. The IAA is after her (and it was never her fault to begin with). She is under the employment of a dragon and the worst, someone has her cat. Noo, not Captain. I do love a good cat sidekick. He is just there you know, and his growls plays a big part.

I like Owl, she is snarky (sure maybe too much for her own good but who cares). She loves cats and history. Gotta love that.

Anyway, in this one she must find two guys for the IAA and that is just the beginning. In comes the mystery of the electric samurai. And it does become a great adventure. Action, snark, danger and suspense.

Narration by Christy Romano
I do like how she plays the different part and I enjoy listening to her voice. I think she does a good job narrating this one.

I never know what to say when it comes to narration, I mean, I liked her voice and that is all I need.

Conclusion:
I am reeeeally looking forward to book 4 now cos omg that ending. Dang! That was intense and something bad happened. Something that will alter everything. I can't wait to see how it works out. I need it now.

  1. Sounds like quite a cliff-hanger ending!

  3. As you know, I'm in the middle of listening to the first book. It's pretty good. I hope Owl matures over the series - she's got some juvenile tendencies. But so far I'm in for the long haul...

    1. I can't remember if I though so in book 1, hmmm, well I like that side perhaps. Maybe it's her snark

  4. OH I have been there. Sometimes I just need the narrator to read it to me because their voices are better than the ones in my head LOL

  6. I am reading this one now. It is long but I like it. I will have to try the next one on audio.

  7. I finally gave in and picked up the audiobooks.

    I do the same. If I start a series on audio, I generally need to finish it on audio otherwise it feels like it lacks something.

  11. Can't wait to read this one. I love Owl. I have the eARC but I might consider doing the audio too, since you enjoyed it so much. I think I've also listened to Christy Romano on other audiobooks and she's great.

  18. I tend to want to finish a series on audio, if I start it on audio. I have several series that I haven't finished because they quit putting them on audio.
