Julie Kagawa does an epic job on this series and I just love Khristine Hvams narration...She makes the Fey world come to life for me!!!!!
I want to know what happens next...I enjoyed the story, could not stop listening to it. Love the characters and the plot.
I truly enjoyed this story. The main character showed courage, strength, a good sense of loyalty and growth. In a story full of incredible creatures and fantastic worlds, I found the interesting parallel between reality and fantasy.
I like my audiobooks to be easy reads (listens). And this is exactly what this series is. The narrator does a wonderful job.
Puck, because he's that guy that all girls always want to have as a BFF.
Grim, the cat, was fun to listen to.
These faeries aren't so sweet and innocent.
I love discovering new stories while driving or working in the barn, reading voraciously since I could walk. There is no genre, just magic
I gave it a read as I love the narrator of this book. She is amazing! The story built an entire world rich in detail and depth. Great work and I highly recommend it.
a lot like the Hobbit series and Michelle Sagara's Cast in Sorrow series. Kristine Ham is great
The first chapter captivated my interest and it continued to build
Acupuncture student with a long commute to school who loves quirky horror and sci-fi/fantasy
this is the introduction to an amazing world of Fey and some great characters
I can not compare this story to many others, but it has all the right elements to real me in. It has 2 boys in love with the same girl, danger intrigue and magic. I was not sure about this series at first as this is the 1st book and it was a slow start. the next 2 books in this series left me breathless. I was driving down the freeway listening and crying and laughing and just loving this series more than I can say. Give it a try
she is one of my favorite narrators, she is excellent in this series as she was in the daughter of smoke and bone series and the beautiful creatures series
fey-ries not fairys lolI love that this was emphasized in this series
just read it, I am in my late 30's and still love this series it is not only for young adults
Favorite Genres: Urban/Preternatural Fantasy, Science Fiction, Knitting Favorite Story Components: character development, under-dog success stories
The premise of the book is kind of fun, but it was not easy to get into. Mainly, the heroine is written with an unbelievable level of ignorance of "fairy tales", and the fey are written up like they were copied from Shakespeare's plays.
The "unbelievable" about her ignorance comes in because there is never a clear (or even muddy) explanation of why she hasn't had even the briefest introduction to fairy stories, yet she's a white girl living in middle America. White girl. Middle America. That isn't just prime Euro-mutt territory, it's prime North and West Euro-mutt territory. Where most of the fairy stories come from? Yeah. So, that part bothered me a lot. Until about half way through, you don't even get a decent shot at guessing why she's such an utter dunder head.
Relying on Shakespeare's conceptualization of the fey, also not a winner, but again, get past the half way point and the character building starts to pick up so they don't feel quite so ... cardboard.
The narration wasn't half bad.
I loved that the fey realm is entered by one of "us" and seen through our eyes. I love details, like iPods not working, etc.
The dance where she meets the winter prince.
I love her interpretation of Puck.
I couldn't hardly put this down. I was captivated.
I don't care if its a "Tween" series. It is a well written story for any age listener.
I wanted to give this book five stars I really really did, but some parts of the story I just found missing something. Maybe because I'm older then a high schooler, and some of the love triangle storyline is just not for me anymore. I enjoy the throwback to Shakespeare. I had to read a lot of his work during school.
Khristine Hvam performance was great! She brought the characters and story to life.
