I read a hard copy of the first book in this series, then found it on Audible. I'm now nearly finished with the ones that have been published so far and I have to say the narration absolutely MAKES these stories. I listen to tons of books -- have probably a hundred on my device -- and Lorelei King brings these characters and this story right off the page. I started one of them on my kindle and thought something was missing -- it was her voice! Highly recommended for wit, humor, suspense, and of course the sexiest anti-hero ever, Reyes Farrow!
I am an avid fantasy and urban fantasy reader. I also read a lot of millitary romance.
I liked the book even though I passed on it several times based on the summary. I am glad I finally gave it a shot.
Lorelai King is one of my favorite performers. This was another excellent performance.
I haven't listened to or read anything that made me smile as much since Stephanie Plum started he career as a bounty hunter. Enjoyed it!
Mom of 3 wild and crazy boys, I've become obsessed with books again after being sucked into a little vampire/lovestory series you may have heard of, and now I listen to most books (but read at night) so that I can be somewhat productive during the day and not leave my family and home to collapse around me while my nose is stuck in a book ; )
For me it was slow to get started. Funny, but sometimes corny. Didn't know someone could be so persuaded to do things bc of coffee. It felt like she was trying a little too hard to throw in a joke and too many one-liners. I found myself putting it down quite a bit and not in a hurry to come back to it, unlike some books that I find myself driving slower to get places just so I can keep listening. Even though it Took me awhile to get into it and to follow it at times, as it started nearing the end that is when the meat of the story came in and I was beginning to be drawn to these characters. I am definitely interested in continuing this series now. Hopefully the one-liners will peter off a bit and we will get to join her as she discovers her true abilities. It's got great potential, and considering there are numerous books in this series, I can only believe that they just get better.
All I need is tea and a good story.
I a lover of books think this funny slightly ditzy girl riper rocked. while she stumbles on to crimes she has cool powrs to help her out. get it now!!!
To keep it short and simple, this book was amazing.
Lorelei King captured the essence Darynda tried in portray in this book. She nailed each character. Her pace, tempo and overall narration was amazing. I could close my eyes and see everything and everyone she spoke about. She is hands down the best narrator.
Darynda Jones is marvelous. She is so descriptive with her writing that it leaves the whole scene painted for us. I loved the entire storyline, it was definitely something different. I felt a huge pool of emotions throughout various points in the book. Good stories should invoke an array of feelings, making it all the more realistic (because let's be honest, who likes everybody they've ever met, not even the Catholic priests). At one point my teenage cousin said she felt like she needed a dictionary to keep up, lol, but it's okay for the target audience. Darynda made me fall in love with fictional characters, which is always the aim for a good book. I would love to see this on the big screen.
Young girls, in middle school except for the semi-graphic sex scenes, so I guess nobody.
Story line, dialog, everything
If it wasn't for the fact that this was the only book I had on a long drive, I would never have listened to it beyond the first five minutes.
Definitely recommend. Kept me in my car listening and almost late for work!!
When Charley learned of her "Rayis"
muted- Not very exciting but still good
What a great start to what I hope will be an interesting series. Maybe a new joke--what do you get when you cross a grim reaper with the son of satan??? I can't wait to find out the answer!! The narrator was very good and the story is full of interesting characters. I will definitely be listening to more of the adventures of Charley Davidson!!
