I like the style in which the author writes. It’s humorous and suspenseful and interesting. I will listen to more books in this series.
I enjoyed the first book in the series and wanted to like this one too, but it was too gruesome, not lighthearted enough, and the main character became more and more annoying. Having the heroine continually make wrong assumptions and bad decisions didn't work for me. Character flaws can invigorate a story, but this time they didn't.
I'm a fan of Sci-fi, fantasy and suspense. I like books that keep me guessing till the end.
This series is just a fun listen. It is not for those of you looking for the depths of The Mists of Avalon. What it does give you is a fun ride, with surprisingly interesting characters that begin to really grow on you. It's mind candy at it's finest, just remember to brush afterwards!

I loved the first book in the series so much but this one really let me down. It fell into the trap that a lot of female-centric fantasy books do which is soft-core porn. I'm glad that Rachel and her boyfriend have a lively sex life, but the unimaginative details are too common for the genre. I'm still not sure why she's dating this guy, anyway. He put her in debt to a demon in the first book. That's not leaving the cap off the toothpaste, that's putting her soul in danger when she begged him not to. Also, the excuses that she makes for her room mate, who attacks her over and over, makes her sound like a delusional battered wife. "It's my fault, she needs me, I'm special, I'll be careful next time, I'm worried about her." blah-blah-blah. So annoying! That said, I thought the second book in the Dresden Files series was horrible for many of the same reasons. I'm willing to give the next book a try after a break.
I found the characters confusing and was bored by the fact that a lot of it was just chit chat. I like vampires, and I like adventure but this book was just plain boring.
The story is great. Main character...doesn't deserve to keep living. I wonder how many people she will get killed around her by the end? Love the series so I will TRY to keep going.
I love all the supernatural love stories. Vampires stories are my favorites.
There was a tad too much repetition and too much unnecessary details. I still liked it but did find myself rolling my eyes and fast forwarding it in a few areas. I was also slightly irritated with how she was constantly attacked by her roommate the vampire. It was just borderline irritating so, Yes I'm getting the next book and hope it's better.
I enjoyed the storyline of different magicals/non-humans trying against the odds (and against the advice of those around them) to live and work together. I like the internal struggles they go through as well as the day-to-day challenges of being bounty hunters & PIs. The reader does a great job in vocalizing the different characters, enabling me to visualize Rachel, Ivy, Jenks, and the others. I've only listened to the first 2 books, but so far, Jenks is my favorite pixy. I do have one complaint; it just seems that Rachel's success in life and in her job happen by accident or by sheer luck. I was hoping that Rachel grows in the series, gets a little smarter, and things actually happen the way she meant it to happen
