I think teenagers or adults that like teen adventures.
If it was geared to adults only.
I didn't care for her performance, especially the lead teenage girl.
The book had good action and a detailed plot. The supernatural element was interesting.
I just could not get into this book. I love the mortal intruments seirses but this one I could not connect with the characters.
This was a great story ! I really enjoyed and this review should not stop anyone from purchasing however I had the voice really annoying at time. Her voices were cartoony and silly. The weird whisper yell thing she does to indicate someone is screaming made me laugh out loud and completely broke the 4th wall.
Again great book- just maybe download a written copy instead.
I couldn't get into this book until about the last couple of hours. That's why I only gave it 3 stars. I LOVED the mortal instruments series & this just wasn't the same. I almost stopped reading but the last several chapters MIGHT make me read the second book. I'm bummed :/
This was not quite what I expected. I love the Mortal Instruments series so I thought this would be comparable.
The story is great! 5 stars! However Jennifer Ehle is very shrill and annoying! I had to try and tune her out as best i could to enjoy the story! Her narration aside...if you loved The Mortal Instruments series you'll love this series!
loved listening and I'm excited for the next book. made my morning and evening commutes appear faster.
Though the reading was well done, the author leaves a lot to be desired. The first half of the book drew me into the world and from the narrative of a young girl in apparently the late-1800s.
The portrayal of Tessa, the young female lead was done well. Her narrative staying close to that of a young, well read woman of that time. The rest of the characters however lack variety and depth. I was disappointed that the other reviews failed to mention that this book is clearly written for a young crowd. The author often explains what is obvious to reader and in ways that take you out of the story. Lines of dialogue spoken only for the readers' benefit when we should already know what is meant. The supporting characters are out of place being so young. Displaying experience and depth of knowledge that even the magic could not rightly explain.
I really wanted to like the story. I was so invested for 60-70% of the book, but once the glimpses into teen relationships reared it was too late. The book devolved into a sort of Twilight narrative. Disappointing.
