"reading junkie" I read or listen to almost anything except for non-fiction or history, unless I find it interesting.
It's not a bad book but I looked at the other books in the series and I was unhappy with the author's choice of love interest. I could be wrong but it just seemed to safe and boring. The story was actually pretty good. It's written well and even has some funny parts.
The story was okay, but really tired of the main characters whining about how great she is and what a burden that greatness is
I usually love this author, but I did not like this series or this character
none were really my favorite, but I guess the birthday party....
No, probably not
I won't repeat other reviews too much. If you see the same thing multiple times, I probably agree with it. The characters are complex. When the servants of Satan are kind and angles are annoying even if they do not technically sin (at least not without serious consequences), any plot is more likely to be fun. Each book in the series involves the main character solving some sort of mystery that has baffled her superiors with help and humorous breaks from a cast of immortal and mortal characters that are also well developed for the most part. There aren't too many shallow charactuers even if minor characters are not as fully developed as the leads.
It took me a bit of time to get used to the narrator. Unlike other reviewers, I found that her style of speaking did not quite match what I expected for the main character. However, it wasn't so off that I could not enjoy the book and before i reached the end of the first book, her style didn't bother me any more. Given that there is a whole series narrated by the same person, this is only mildly distracting for a small portion of the overall series.
Engaging characters, a few unexpected plot twists, very well performed. Many explicit sex scenes, so not the book you'd share with the kiddies while driving cross country.
These books are fun! The dialogue and the story development finds me grinning more often than not. What a nice change.
I just cant get enough of Georgina... I have all of Mead's books, and this is by far my favorite.
this book has a great story line and a fantastic cast of characters Can't wait for the follow up.
a great twist to the ending

The story was interesting and sexy. I could not get past Elisabeth Rodger's voice.
I don't think so, I didn't like the way she read or the tone in her voice.
I love urban fantasy, but this book was a real letdown. The plot's "twists and turns" were obvious all along the way, the scenes were plodding, and, worst of all, there was almost nothing happening. The sex, which I don't mind in a book but don't go looking for either, was unimaginative and cliche. The main character's romantic dilemma was so repetitive that it had become painfully boring less than halfway through the book, and the sharing of her backstory was ham-handed. The narrator's reading lacks nuance and made the characters sound alternately whiny and smug. All of the voices blend into each other; she didn't manage to create distinctive voices for any of the main characters, and her narrator's voice tended to creep in when characters were speaking. I'm sad that I spend a credit on this.
Maybe it's me, but nothing about this book grabbed me. One day, I stopped listening and never felt it was worth bothering to go back to it. It wasn't offensive. It wasn't anything. There was just nothing about it that seemed worth my time or attention. Sorry.
