The book itself is pretty much on par with the rest of the series, I enjoyed the continuing story and advancing of the characters. That said, it took me FOREVER to get through this book because I could barely STAND to listen to the narrator. Her accents are laughable, and in certain cases downright insulting (her reading of Karmeesha's every line made me cringe!) I won't be listenting to the next book if there isn't another narrator change.
Caitlin Davies is I'm sorry BORING!!!!! I get so use to one of the readers and then you get a different one. Its hard to stay in focus with the characters... they lose me when they ALL start to sound the same Stevie Ray you lose her twang... Aphrodite she just sooo much attitude you can't mess her. But the twins and Jack and Grandmother Redbird they just aren't right Please find a person to Narrate and stick with them.... Oh My Goddess.... Other wiseI so love this series as much as V. A...
You know, I am starting to see that everyone has a different opinion when it comes to narrators. This is the first Narrator that I have actually enjoyed listening to in a while! shes very descriptive, and has a pleasant, calming voice. As far as the book itself goes, I am enjoying it to! I do not see it being to "wordy" as other reviews put it. I mean whats a book without words? ^^
Say something about yourself!
Very wordy as the other said and you already knew what was going to happen it was very obvious. Not the same as the rest. Very young reader also.
great come back can't wait for the next book. I just cant believe WTF Stevie Ray is doing, boy Zoey you had better HURRY!!!!!!! Thanks P.C Cast and Kristin Cast so wich of you is Zoey????
I liked the narrator- have read all the other HON books in ebook so this was my first audio and I thought she depicted each character well. The book did feel a little short like they stretched out the story by telling other people's POV but it was interesting to hear how others saw the same situation. The HON series is a little cheaper pricewise so the books do seem shorter than say a Stephenie Meyer book which costs more. While the story is focused on a teenager as the heroin, it covers topics that all ages (except really young tweens) can relate to so despite being 39 yrs old I love these books. waiting til next year for the conclusion is awful- will keep busy with Richelle Mead and Spirit Bound from Vampire Academy series and hopefully Lauren Kate with her follow up to Fallen by the Fall of 2010. These are all great books - somewhat in this style of Urban Fantasy - if your looking for something til the next HON.
I'm probably too old to love these books as much as I do (32!) but I am completely in love with these characters! Not at all ashamed to admit that I was crying and laughing within the first hour, and it just continued from there. The Characters and story lines progress nicely. I love the way the story was split into multiple character points of view.
My only complaint is that this is the FOURTH narrator for the series. Seriously? Why can't we just stick with one? I like Jenna Lamia and Cassandra Morris the best. JMO.
