Sintesi dell'editore

Alex Bledsoe’s fantasy novels have drawn rave reviews for their ingenious blend of classic fantasy and hard-boiled detective fiction. Now Bledsoe returns with an all-new tale of intrigue and murder.

Freelance sword jockey Eddie LaCrosse is in the wrong place at the wrong time while conducting an undercover investigation on the island kingdom of Grand Bruan. When a poisoned apple kills a member of the queen’s personal guard, Eddie becomes the prime suspect in the murder. He must do some fast talking to keep his head attached to his shoulders. While trying to clear his name and find the real killer, Eddie becomes embroiled in a nasty political scandal. Someone is trying to ruin Queen Jennifer and doesn’t care who is killed along the way.

The more Eddie digs, the more twisted the lies become, until Eddie finds himself caught between two opposing armies. The fate of the entire kingdom lies in his hands.

Murder, betrayal, and magic—just another day on the job for Eddie LaCrosse.

Very different from the first two in the series

Although Stefan Rudnicki did a wonderful job at narration, the story line was a bit different, taking place in Eddie LaCrosse's past. He is telling the story to his friends as they sit and drink to hear his tale. It goes from the (Bar room story, several times and then back to Eddie telling his tale) You will see a lot of parallels, between Eddies story and the story of "King Arthur". True evil and again those with weak stomach, may wish to pass on this. I hope that Alex Bledsoe continues with more Eddie LaCross in more Original tales. The first two books were wonderful and I recommend them highly. This book is a bit different and it can stand alone, where the first two can not. I was hoping for more about Eddie, but I do hope that Mr Bledsoe will hear the fans and poke some life into a new story for Eddie Et Al.

classic PI novel meets fantasy setting

The narrator's deep baritone adds to the author's gripping story that reads almost like a Sherlock Holmes story, but with action. The story pulls you in and keeps you engaged even after the mystery is solved.

Great Book

I really enjoy this series. My only problem with it is the narrator. He does a great job, but his female voices are awful and the difference between the male voices is so slight I get confused with them sometimes.

Worth the listen

These books are more entertaining than they have any right to be, somewhat predictable but just the right amount of twists

Best Eddie LaCrosse Yet

This story is excellent, by far the best of the series. If you like mystery novels this one is quite good.

love the narrators voice

I love the mix of genres here. I've listened to the first 3 in this series in month and didn't loose interest once.

Eddie LaCrosse Is Fun

Talk about adventure. This book is one of the stories that stuck out in my mind when regoing over the story in my head. I saw reviews, and people mentioning about how its bits and pieces from other stories like King Arthur. And as I can see the influences and similarities, it did not bother me or really get close enough to upset me in anyway. There is a few "stretching of" things in possibilities with this but it's like that in all these books, that's why its fantasy. The only odd choice for this, was having Eddie tell the story in a tavern, so it goes back and forth between the two view points. It's not a huge deal, as it only does this 3 times and for short periods. I could not guess the ending, and enjoyed this crazy wild ride. Though the ending isn't super satisfying like some of his adventures, it's one of my favorites of this genre.

Very entertaining

In the style of Dashell Hammett’s Mike Spade, Alex Bledsoe takes a smart, funny and likable gum-shoe and places him in a renaissance faire world with laugh out loud humor and a very fast moving storyline. The sign of a good series, this sequel is as good as the first in the series. I’m going for number three now.

Best interpretation yet!

I've read Tennyson. I've seen The Sword in the Stone. If it has to do with Arthurian legend, I've at least skimmed it. And I can honestly say, this is the most enjoyable version yet! Alex Bledsoe, thank you for giving me a Merlin I needed, but didnt know that I did
