Jenks - He was hilarious and I loved the voice the narrator gave him. Rachel - Got a little tired of her reactions to Ivy every time she came near her. Also, some of her decisions were a little questionable.
The story was good for the most part but dragged in several places.
What fun character's & fun situations they get into.Great series so far.I love the paranormal & mixing it up with Mystery is even better.Rachel needs to grow a pair though with concerning her"room mate"Ivy.Ivy seems to be taking the"Hero"role in this book.Jinx is funny & flighty a great companion to Rachel,her little side kick.I look forward to listening to the other books in the series to see what other trouble,Rachel & her team can get into:)
She seemed to flow effortlessly between characters and scenes
Ivy's reactions and efforts to control and addiction
This book was great. I was turned on to these books by a co worker since I loved the Dresden File Books by Jim Butcher. Please check out this series. I think you will enjoy them.
About a 6 on a 1-10.
No. This is a fun genre. I enjoy the theme a lot - witches, pixies, vamps, demons - good stuff.
Janx's voice. It was very amusing and well done. I think she did all of the characters extremely well. I would listen to more books read by Ms. Gavin.
I would read other books in this genre by Kim Harrison but only if they didn't have the Rachel Morgan character in them. I did not like her one bit. She was a spoiled, stubborn, rude and stupid character and I had no feeling for her besides annoyance. Also, the story plot was a little "movie of the week". It was trite and tiresome. I wasn't so much interested in the storyline as I was in the characters and their world. I really wished that the story explored more of Ivy and Janx. I was also a little disappointed that the loose ends weren't tied up very well at the end of the book. I hope that Ms. Harrison's next book is more about the world of the vamps and/or pixies. I think it may be more interesting.
The narration is excellent. The character develop well and the world feels full and dynamic with enough real world to help the fantasy come to life. The problems Rachal gets herself in seem daunting and with no way to go back and no desire to do so she finds her self and her two closest friends with only one choice. Stand or die. This holds fast thru out the entire series and only gets better as the depth of the world and personalities works its way out. If you like fantasy and magick in a mostly modern era. If you like demons witches and vampires. You will enjoy this series. I am a guy and wile there is a great deal of lover interpersonal relationship emotional involvement in this series it did not degrade in to a "sappy love story with spells and fangs". As a guy i prefer action but a listener looking for quality emotion that enhances the story more than becoming the story will most likely come away satisfied.
Say something about yourself!
This is a great book. I love the story, the characters, and especially the narrator. Marguerite does an awesome job. She talks a little fast but its not hard to follow once you get used to it. But back to the book...Awesome from start to finish! Plenty of action and humor to keep you interested. This is a must for anyone who enjoys books like Sookie, BDB, twilight, etc. You won't regret it!!
I missed the point of most of this book. The pacing would slow when describing some little detail, and then gloss over the main points of the book. I found transitions awkward, and frequently found myself how we got from one place to another and what the significance of a particular character was. The story didn't flow for me.

Honestly. I have no idea what people see in this book. The main character isn't even likeable. In fact, she's down right irritating.
I only finished it hoping I would find some redeeming value.
No such luck.
I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
With such a title and summary, you hope for a fun, sassy ride. The joy is, you get it! Well, I sure did. I'm glad my friends who love this genre sucked me into it!
I couldn't get beyond the first few chapters. I just didn't care for the writing style or the narration. I really tried to like it.
I don't know... but I had the books in this series in my wish list. I will have to remove them.
I thought her voice sounded too old for the part.
I couldn't get through much of the book, so I couldn't say.
It seemed like this would have been something I would have enjoyed. I like other books in this type of genre, but the writing style and the performance were grating. I just couldn't listen beyond the first couple of chapters.
