Summary

The ferryman of the dead is forced to leave the life he’s always known.

Apollo has had a vision: as the life of each soul flashes before Charon’s eyes, the ferryman ages like an old man. Charon needs to experience his own adventures to become youthful again, or he will soon die. The last thing Charon expects is to fall in love with a mortal woman - someone he can’t take with him when he returns. Charon must decide whether to abandon the love of his life or his duties.

While Charon's Quest shares the world of The Underworld Saga (a best-selling paranormal romance/urban fantasy series), it can be listened to before or after or anytime in between the rest of the books in the saga.

Ferryman has his own fairy tale

I really enjoyed this book. It can be read before or after the Underworld Saga. I happened to read/listen after I read the other books. I’m glad it was in that order. It gives me a look at the man I’ve grown to love in the other books. He has always been a man of few words. Doing his job without any complaint. But now it’s predicted he might die. He has become so old and withered. Seems it’s due to no contact with others. So he is sent up to earth. Here he meets a bar tender who is also a nurse. They become fast friends. Pretty soon, due to his interaction with others and the emotions it gives him, he is looking younger and younger. It was like a fairy tale in a way. We see how he learns to cope with being around others. There were also some old friends from other books who were in the picture some. This was a different pace and story type compared to the rest of the books so even if you haven’t read the others, if this isn’t your cup of tea, please give the others a try too. And if you like audiobooks, this is to die for, no pun intended with the whole underworld and death lol. The narrator is excellent.

Really liked this one

Charon is an old, fading ferryman, and Apollo has predicted he'll die. He really needs a vacation.

Hades sends him to Earth to get a break from the monotony. Charon doesn't want to, but he obeys.

I liked how grief and reluctance were handled in this story.
