It was a great series with just one problem. The contrived death at the end of the series was unfit for publication and did not suit the rest of the story at all. It was so bad that I would urge the author to rewrite the ending before republishing. Little ...
I truly enjoyed the whole series! Each day I would eagerly await coming to work, just so I could listen to Trader's Tales at the same time I was designing! As with any good book series, it was both wonderful and sad when the books came to an end. Also, ...
I've been avidly awaiting each episode after first reading the Kindle version of Quarter Share. I have loved each story and felt the story line and character development were very good throughout, even if one the main plot lines "Ishmael will make it better..." has become somewhat predictable.

Wow, This series will go down as one of my favorites, thanks for writing such a great series.
