Yes, it is well written and interesting.
Throne of Glass
Puck and Ash.
It is a easy, predictable book that you can easy follow even when distracted. It was well written and has more action then I would expect.
Khristine Hvam, one of the best I have heard. She puts such feeling into the voices.
I loved the idea of the Iron Fey and how they come about.
This was my first of hers, but it won't be the last. I plan on looking for more of her books. She is great!
What would you do for family?
great book and series!
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
YEEESSSS!!!! This book was “Alice in Wonderland” meets “Labyrinth” meets “Percy Jackson”. In other words, it was GREAT! I was sucked in from the very beginning! There was so much action and adventure that I wanted to listen to this audiobook all in one sitting, and would have if time would have permitted. The characters, concepts and the Nevernever World were completely mesmerizing.
It's a 3way tie -- Meghan was such a wonderful character and I loved watching her come into her own. She grew up and gained so much strength and independence. It was very refreshing as I hate weak women in books. I love her selflessness.
I love Puck’s bluntness and sense of humor as well as the fact that he’s always there for Meghan. What a whimsical character! "Will it be dangerous?" "Oh, extremely. That's what makes it fun. You can die in so many interesting ways - skewered on a glass sword, dragged underwater and eaten by a kelpie, turned into a spider or a rosebush, for all time."
Ash is your typical male character (good-looking) from every fantasy book. The brooding hot guy with vulnerabilities. And ooooo I am happy about it! I was never quite sure if he was going to kill Meghan or kiss her! Epic kiss scene btw.
I loved her voices of all the different creatures. She did a fantastic job!!!
Whenever I think of Ash and Puck fighting all I can picture is the scene from 21 Jump Street – “Have some fairy dust, b****!” LOL
I still haven’t figured out yet if I’m Team Puck or Team Ash.
Now onto the 2nd book!
While I generally love YA fantasy reads, I couldn't get into this one because I did not like the main character, Meghan Chase.
In this genre, I'll probably listen to "Poison Study" (for the second time) next. I purchased the other books in this series, but after struggling to finish this one, I will not be listening to them.
Meghan, the narrator as well as main character, came across as whiny and bratty. This may may have to do, in part, with how her sections were read. Hvam did, however, do an excellent job distinguishing between characters and gave some of the characters excellent voices.
The way the book spun off the character framework from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" was interesting and a lot of the secondary characters were intriguing- I just found Meghan Chase too annoying to enjoy the the book.
Yes I would this is in fact going in my "CLASSICS" so that I can listen to it over and over. I love the freshness of the story and the way there was always something new around every corner. I like the fact that the characters were brought about and we were always discovering more about each one. Love the bit of the fae lore that you can glean from this first book and it was just something I could and will listen to again.
The dance with Ash.
Where Ash told her he may have to kill her if his queen wishes it.
no I did not cry but it made me go straight to amazon and download the next book the minute I finished this one and be thrilled I could get the whisper sync with it.
I love it and I will check out the books for adults too lol but I am really enjoying the young adult right now.
I got of my typical genre for this one. I typically stick to dystopian. This reminded me of what I would expect listening to a Harry Potter audio. The voice was at time awful. Her "child" voice was like nails on a chalkboard. I'm sure its hard to do several voices of mythical creatures but it was just annoying to me. The book was mediocre. I finished it because I paid for it but I wouldnt recommend it, Maybe reading it instead of listening to it would be better.
I did not enjoy the book.
Very disappointing. I was hoping for some excellent storytellling throught the creation of an interesting magical world - but there was none of that.
By far one of my favorite Fey books. The characters are imaginative, funny and likable. I didn't want to put it down.
I almost did not purchase this book because of all the negative reviews. But when it went on sale I purchased it. I am glad I did. I was glad to have a new twist on things. I have listened to a lot of supernatural books and I liked this one. It started off a little slow for me and about an hour into the story I stopped the book and switched into another one. Then came back to this book. I loved it, and can't wait to listen to the next one.
