I loved this book starting with the narration all the way threw. It was quite easy to imagine Eve talking like the narrator. This book also had a new feel to it (as opposed to other paranormal books). While it did have all the same character types (ie, vampires, faeries werewolves etc..) I love the whole new way White really rewrote and redefined these characters!!!
A fresh new definition of the paranormal.
This is a wonderful read and an enjoyable one for anyone!!!!!!!!!
Yep, I am right now because the writing and narration are funny and awesome! I've laughed out loud at parts!
Tasie the hot pink taser gun she had. Evie is in love with pink and named her weapon. Awesome!
The relationship between Evie and Raquel. I was not happy with what happened to one of the characters. I really missed that one... and it really affected Evie. Bleep.
I do enjoy listening to sci-fi YA novels, even though I'm much closer to 35 than 15, and this one was no exception. This is a lighter addition to the genre, not nearly as dark as Divergent, or thought provoking as The Hunger Games, but will still easily keep your attention and cause a few "extended driveway moments", so you can finish a scene or chapter.
The narrator did an excellent job, even adding accents when appropriate and making an effort to have males sound like males, which wasn't easy since her voice perfectly matched the 16 year old heroine.
The book was fast moving, kept me interested on my 6 hour trip, as well as drives back and forth to work until I'd finished it. I did purchase the next book in the series and hope the 3rd, which is due for release this summer, will be read by the same narrator.
Well worth a credit and your time, since you've found your way to this page and are already thinking this sounds like a book you'd be interested in listening to.
I enjoyed the book, so I thought I would like to hear it read. The character is cheerful and perky in the face of lots of strange goings on because she doesn't know anything else. The reader managed to capture this attitude very well with her voice.
I knew this wasn't a book my husband would enjoy, which was the one problem with an audiobook. I didn't have earphones and couldn't listen to it silently. So I stretched the listening out over quite a while, using times when no one else was around to either listen or distract me. But I found it very enteretaining.
I'm a twenty-something lit nerd who enjoys Romance, Fantasy and YA Fiction. I like strong female heroes and entertaining readers.
I would and have recommended this book to friends. I enjoy teen fiction and urban paranomal stories are high on my list.
In this tale, we learn about Evie, the odd and talented secret agent who tries to live her teenaged life while also trying to protect people against questionable paranormals. From the beginning to the end, we have a heroine who not only realizes the value of questioning the rules she is given but also who makes strong judgement calls that help her stay true to herself.
I have not had the pleasure of listening to Eiden outside of this series, but I really enjoyed her portrayal of Evie.
No, but not because it wasn't good. I didn't want it to end.
This is a funny, funny book. The characters are learning about themselves as they grow and they are humorous along the way. There is a good balance of the drama and comedy and I love this strong heroine.
Evie, I can identify with her.
Oh my goodness. Bravo for Emily Eiden! She did an incredible job with the voices of all the characters. Honestly, I don't think I would have liked the book near enough if I read it.
The kiss between Lind & Evie...yes, I'm a hopeless romantic!
I so appreciate the standards set forth in this book. No premarital sex and no bad language. Honestly, I had read a few reviews and thought I might not like it but was still curious. This proves to me that I shouldn't go by what others say about a book. Everyone is different. So everyone will view a book differently. I love paranormal/fantasy books and this had the perfect amount of romance, suspense and fantasy characters. It's really giving Twilight
I am a book junkie...I read and enjoy a variety of stories, so please don't "define me" by one book or review! :)
This story is a fun, entertaining diversion to pass the time during workouts and other activities. I am an adult who reads (and listens to) a lot of YA for the entertainment value, and I recommend this story. Decent writing, engaging characters, and a fun plot. Good narration by Emily Eiden. Her voice is very suitable to the teen girls in stories like this one that she usually narrates. Overall, this was engaging and interested me enough that I will catch the continuation of Evie's story ("Supernaturally") at some point soon.
The story was wonderfull and adds a suprising new spin on the popular paranormal genre of today. Evie is only 16 and the narrator did a wonderfull job portraying her as a typical teenage girl dealing with atypical situations. Can't wait for the next one.
I read all kinds of books, but I have an obsession with paranormal and fantasy at the moment. Sorry about any spelling mistakes/typos.
Yes, the book is lighthearted but also very serious in a way, it parallels strongly with the discrimination that we still happening far too often.
You cant help but love Evie, she's both very grown up and very young for a 16 year old, such a contradiction, and she grows a lot during the book.
This book can be used as a lighthearted weekend listen or you can read more into it, the choice is yours.
It's well written and the narrator does an excellent job.
while I love all manner of paranormal beasts and creatures represented in this well written and performed book, there is still no getting over the fact that it is definitely a young adult/teen influenced literary piece.
