The premise was, sorry, just like any other girl-with-secret-destiny-and-two-hot-guys book out there. The lead character was boring, indecisive, and overly emotional. Maybe it's I'm not a 16 year old boy crazy, unpopular girl who choose bad (jerk or douche) boys to crush on. The story has some potential but the lead character needs to develop more, I found myself more interested in the side characters.
If you have ever listened to Inkspell or Harry Potter --- you will enjoy this. Fun story line and great characters to follow..
The books target audience looks to be for teenager so if your teenager you're probably like this book but for older audience not too sure lease for me did not do really.
Yes, Khristine Hvam did an excellent job.
There were so many....but I would have to say the most memorable was when Ash promised to lead Megan to the Iron King and almost died in doing so.
Fabulous performance all the way around. I heard every character loud and clear and loved them all because of her performance.
I think this series has a lot of potential. However there were many points within the story where I became fed up with Megan's rash actions, the inability to listen to offered explanations of the unfamiliar world in which she finds herself. However I guess there would not be a story if not for this character flaw.
Also the romantic aspect of this story was trite, expected, and shallow. Almost twilight-ish: oooh, sexy bad boy, who is technically centuries older than megan, and often poses a threat to her and somehow ... its love.... I will continue reading, because I like the fey world which the writer has created. I hope that other aspects of the story live up to their potential.
It starts out pretty slow but once you give it some time you will get caught up in it.
Really compelling storyline--a little bit different from the norm. This author created a believable world filled with fey and danger. I enjoyed the intricate storyline and in depth characterization.
If it was for an older audience.... I couldnt get into this one, it gave me flash backs of high school.
I don't want to write a long review, but Julie Kagawa wrote a brilliant story and Khristine Hvam does a fantastic job reading. Loved every bit of it!
I couldn't get past the first several chapters and had to delete it. Total waste of money. The story was so stupid and unbelievable that I couldn't take it one more minute.
