Enjoyable overall, although at times slightly annoying. Reminds me of the writing of Evanovitch, with a very fun main character and interestingly unbelievable but funny sub characters.. and of course, there is the possibility of the love triangle..
I had this series in my wish list for over 2 years. I read a lot of the comments and they were all great. But for some reason I kept procrastinating on purchasing this Series. I started with the first book and could not believe how much I enjoyed the story. I love it, the sarcasm, tenderness, action and most of all Reyez. These are great Fantasy/Romance Books. They have story lines. It’s fantastic to actually read or listen to these books and not have 70% of the books full of sex, there is just enough to enjoy and leave a nice taste in your mouth. I have enjoyed this series so much that I am on book 5 in 4 days. I even get up in the middle of the night for a couple of hours just to read. They are absolutely worth a credit.
I received this book free of charge in order to give an honest review. While I don't normally favor this type of book I found I really liked it. It was different. The characters had depth and where well developed. The main character Charlie is very likeable. I liked also that it kept you guessing right up until the end. Narrator did an excellent job. Ill look for next book.
drink beer for big ideas; drink coffee to get them done
This is one of the only books I could listen to for more than 2+ hours at a time. Lorelei gives a stellar performance and the story progresses at the perfect speed. It can be a little cheesy at times, but I only think it adds to the feel. I bought this book at a deal and now I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series!
There is a quote that sets the tone for this novel and that is (do not fear death but be very wary of her).
Absolutely no "meat" or strong storyline for the entire 3 hours I listened. Not sure how it got such good reviews. Weak character development and by the time I couldn't stand it anymore there was STILL no strong story line
This little tale was a romp, lots of fun to see the characters unfold and develope and become a unique alternative universe.
Witty, grounded, vulnerable alternately insightful, intrspective and totally a shallow 20-something with an uncheckable libido, Charley is terrific. a great character to hang a novel on.
the narrator is creative and paces her dialog beautifully. Dhe enhanced thia book with her akill and command of pacing and timing.
Fun summer read!
