Publisher's Summary

Discovering the shadow realm was only the beginning....

I’ve taken on my first-ever apprentice. A mage of my bloodline, Alec is as headstrong as he is powerful, his magic bolstered by a shifty trickster god. 

If that weren’t enough, I’ve been recruited into an NYPD task force on missing persons. Cases in the city are exploding, a little girl among the most recently disappeared. As a soon-to-be father, this one cuts close to the heart. 

But just as I uncover a bizarre lead, I’m yanked back to the shadow realm - a darker, more dangerous New York - where a nefarious entity has targeted Alec in order to get to me. Hunted and on the run, our one ally may be Detective Vega. Only she’s not my wife there, and I’m on her department’s shoot-to-kill list. 

As disappearances in my city climb and dangers in the shadow realm deepen, I’m a wizard caught between realities. 

And I’m getting desperate....

If you like occult action, spell-crackling suspense, and moments of heart, heroism, and all-out laughter, you’ll love Prof Croft!

Ready for book 11

I really like James Patrick Cronin as a narrator and think this book is better because he is doing it. That being said, is there some stereotypical fantasy stuff? Absolutely! Smart mouth wizard falls in love withsuper tough, model cop, I feel like I’ve heard this story. It didn’t matter, still a good tale.

My love for this series just keeps growing!

I absolutely adore this author and this series. Additionally, since I listen while reading along, I can share that the narrator brings his own special complementary magic to everything he reads. James Patrick Cronin breathes life into the Croftverse, and he deserves to be lauded for every contribution.

Unlike many longer series that end up inadvertently diluting the quality of the story after the first few novels, the Prof Croft series only gets better with each new installment. The author deftly develops his extremely magical and entertaining world with every word he writes. Magnarella repeatedly proves himself a capable and worthy steward of the entire Croftverse by always paying special attention to the details that show the growth and progression of each storyline, situation, and character. His delightful foreshadowing continues to grow more elegant and subtle, enhancing one’s enjoyment of it exponentially; in the same vein, his artful allusions to other series within the Croftverse are just as commendable.

Indisputably very lovable, the Prof Croft protagonist Everson Croft is someone any good person would be honored to know. However, the author masterfully balances that extreme goodness with characters who run the gamut from acting angelically to irrevocably evil (and every stage in between), so there’s someone in this series for every taste. I am personally quite enraptured by his redemptive character arcs (e.g. Hoffman)!

Shadow Deep shines not only by drawing one in as the story just keeps getting better, but also by truly showcasing Everson’s growth as a wizard and as a person; every fan will cheer each new benchmark. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Thank you for your work, Mr. Magnarella! It’s a desperately needed light in an ever darkening world, and I am eternally a member of Prof Croft’s Strange Brigade. I invite any newbies to join us there, it’s a heck of a fun ride.

Magnarella Challenges and Cronin Delivers

In Brad Magnarella's Book 10 of the Prof Croft series, Everson and the crew take you on a fun ride as they get swept into more mad wizard adventures. The story is magical , fast paced and extremely enjoyable, but what makes it truly unforgettable is the incredible narration by the talented James Patrick Cronin, who brings Magnarella's words vividly to life. I'm actually starting to believe that Magnarella is writing detailed character vocal descriptions to test JPC's abilities. I love it! One character's voice is described as "Silky Mongolian accent with his own flair. As if he was on the verge of breaking into giggles at any moment.". Who the heck can voice that? JPC can - no problem. Magnarella's quirky characters test JPC's creative limits repeatedly, but JPC not only embraces the challenge, but thrives on it, and consistently demonstrates that he is a narration force to be reckoned with.

Looking forward to Book 11. What will Prof Croft get up to next and what crazy aural ride will Magnarella make JPC take us on? Can't wait.

Prof Croft is amazing in Shadow Deep!

My wife has dubbed me "Garage Dweller" again because of the fact that I could not tear myself away from Shadow Deep.

But, there were far too many times that while listening to Prof Croft's adventures during my drive from work to home , I simply could bear to stop the audio book and go into the house. When the suspense subsided enough to turn off the car and go in the house, I would go inside and be met with with "the Garage Dweller stirs!".

The emotional interplay between characters and mind blowing twists of plot kept me seat belted in the car.

I highly recommend Shadow Deep and all of the other Prof Croft books!
