I am an avid reader! Now I guess an avid Listener. I am addicted to Audible, and love how it keeps me focused when I am trying to get my work done. I am also a really fun kids entertainer... some Adults too!
This book is not for the mature reader. I think young people would enjoy it. It as kind of tongue in cheek silly for me
Great fun reading... light and fun. I enjoyed I and look forward to reading more from this author in future!
I really enjoyed this book. It was charming and funny and scary all at the same time. It was an enjoyable listen.
The animation of objects like the mug and the origami.
She did a good job with all the character voices
It's toungue and cheek humor.
I loved her ability to visualize what was going on. You joined her in the story.
It made me laugh.
It was light hearted and whimsical. I enjoyed it.
I can't remember why I ordered this book in the first place... perhaps a sale? Anyway, it was a bad pick for me. I enjoy escaping into a good story but this one was so annoying and all over the place. I disliked most of the characters with the exception of Tobias, with whom we barely scratch the surface. The rules of the "magic" seemed like the author just made it up as she went and then broke her own rules. The main character was silly and I just wanted her to go away. The narration was not my style either. I had trouble sticking with this book through the end and was glad when it was over.
I have already gone through the book twice. The characters were likeable, the story a new and refreshing take on Magical People. I have been in a "Molly Harper" book sort of mood, having just finished her vampire series. This fit the bill perfectly. As someone else said in a review here, Lucy March is not Molly Harper, but she is close. In fact, I was so certain that she was Molly Harper, I had to check out both of their websites before I would believe it wasn't a Molly book.
Of course Amanda Ronconi does her usual stellar job...her voice is the perfect fit for this book.
Oh dear, there were two, both having to do with betrayal...I don't want to say anymore because I don't want to give away anything in the plot.
Davina, most definitely. Ms. Ronconi is human and only has so many voices to use in her narration. Most of the voices we've heard before. That is not a complaint, it is her magic. Even though the voices are similar/same to other characters in other books, she manages to individualize each character so that they are still unique to the personality currently being read. However, Davina is a voice I haven't heard before from Ms. Ronconi and I absolutely loved it!
Yes, I even stayed up way past my bedtime to finish the book the first time through.
If you are in the mood for a light-hearted paranormal romance, this book is for you!
I accidentally found this title because of the narrator, Amanda Ronconi. I had enjoyed her narration of another book, and was curious to see what else she had worked on. This title was on sale, and I thought I'd give it a try. I was charmed by the story, and even went hunting for more titles by the author. No luck yet, but I'll get her sophomore effort!
The magic system is new and original, but it doesn't take away from the story. It builds slowly with the plot, until they're so inexorably entwined that you can't resist finding out where the author is going to go with them.
Amanda is funny and manages to convey so many different emotions in her voice that you just can't resist her. I always feel like I'm listening to a friend telling me a story.
Yes, it has a bit of a slow start, but the characters are so engaging that it doesn't last for long!
it's a top 20 book
I love livs powers.
I want a little gibson of my own
stacy - she reminds me off m own friends willing to take the normal and the weird in stride.
Fun, original, heartbreaking
The Unseen by Alexandra Sokoloff because the book explores a little romance and a girl with newly awakened powers who struggles with a new self-identity.
When magic overtakes a small town, one girl must control her new gifts to fight the powers of night.
Great book. I would love to see it develop into a series. Liv's new reality and powers promise many adventures to come as she learns to control her gifts.
A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.
I hope this book is a success and Lucy March writes many more. Her characters and plot are wonderful.
With Amanda narrating, the story reminds me of Molly Harpers' wonderful tales, but that's a very good thing.
Wish I could get a mug bunny of my very own!
