I loved the first three mortal instruments and altho I couldn't get into the last three books I had high hopes for this series. I'm not sure if it was the time period or just the story but I struggled to finish. I was not bound to any of the characters and while I'm a bit curious of their next adventure I could just as easily be satisfied reading a synopsis.
The narrator did fine with the accents but agreed no life to the story. Best of luck to the next reader... Not bad but not for me.
I loved being swept away by the images of nineteenth century London fantastically transmogrified into backdrops for chivalric young shadow hunters. There is beauty in combing the nostalgia of the age of Victoria with the good vs. evil of angels waring against devils. History and fantasy intertwined; I am simply captivated and will continue to read the series. I hope the author continues in this time period.
great book! I had put off reading it because I wasn't sure if or how it would compare to the mortal instruments books. I'm sad I waited this long. .. can't wait to jump into the next one!
This was a very different take on a dark fairytale with some prominent characters from the old Penny Dreadfuls. I like the twists and turns this story takes. It was a fun listen.
I actually listened to it twice b/c I kept day dreaming while listening. But would I listen to it twice b/c it was just that good?? Nope.
Good ending. Better than beginning. Took forever to get to the real action. Contemplated getting the 2nd book. Not sure if I will.
I didn't really have a favorite.
