Teaser: Tamshi Telardian just had an epiphany. She now realizes that her memories are gone, and she has been serving an arch-demon bent on destroying the true gods. Further, her ice imp familiar has vanished in the confusion. How can a simple sorceress stop an entire cult, let alone an ancient demon lord?

Tamshi's Imp, is written in a wonderfully descriptive fashion that catches you up in it. Jonathan Fesmire does a wonderful job in describing things, and in bringing you into his world. He also does a good job with the narration and with the audio quality of this podiobook. At least in my opinion, granted I don't know a lot about the making or producing of such audio files so if it sounds good to me... doesn't necessarily mean it's great. :)

However, beyond that I found the story it's self conflicted and jumbled. Perhaps it would've been easier to follow in print but in audio it was hard to figure out what was going on. I also found the characters extremely inconsistent and contradictory which really took away from the story for me. Over all I found the sequence of events unbelievable, and the whole thing had a cut and paste feel to it.

For example, if the two main characters in here were best friends--memory loss aside--they would probably know each others powers especially since one taught the other. It was little things like this that just didn't really work for me that rather ruined the book for me. However, those fact's aside it was not horrible to the point that I wouldn't be willing to try listening to something else by Jonathan Fesmire in the future.
