I liked the book. A little bit of mystery, humor, and romance. it just doesn't have the same detail as longer books that I normally purchase. The narrator isn't horrible but by no means even close to being a favorite. Liked her reading and the book enough to get the second and third book of this series.
When Audible has a sale and it includes the first of a series that I think I might be interested in, I give it a chance; hating to pass up any book at a bargain. I have enough drama and need for reading technical literature in real life and look for entertainment in most of my reading material. I like the format and characters to entertain and interest me. This series is starting out to do just that. It's fun and entertaining and the hours flew by. I was able to multitask while listening and didn't miss the storyline while attending to other activities that didn't need any conscious thought. All in all, it's just what I look for in a novel. I would have liked a little more depth of character and thought that there were parts that could have used a little more detail in order to "paint" a better picture of where it was coming from and, since it is a series, where it may be heading, instead of just a "tease" of what's to come. But, that being said, I will be getting additional books in the series. It may not be perfect, but it is entertainment and a fun read.
Love books and love to put in my two cents' worth
I found myself on a five hour ride in a shared cab in Greece, with three other people who did not speak a word of English. While this book is not great literature, it kept me entertained and made the time pass pleasantly. In other word, it's a "beach read" - honestly I would not go out of my way to read a second book by the same author, though. It's pretty predictable.
I live in the REAL "Real world house". We are right over the Narrow's Bridge and the view is awesome. 8 roommates can be fun and nuts!
This book was fair and would have been better with another narrator. I almost traded the book back bust decided to tough out the slow monotone and I finally got used to it. The reader's voice achieved few levels and sounded sleepy all the way through. For those that are also interested in witch lore this had some good information.
I enjoyed when she made the Madragora out of Mandrake root and when she described brewing and ritual.
Her energy level seemed to be low. No highs and lows vocally with a monotone that sounded flat.
Very very high!
Hard to pick between content and narrator....and so I won't! I liked everything about this book. AND that there will be more too.
Love her easy style
No. I like to stretch out a good story.
I've been looking for a good series for a while now. So glad I found it!
A long time since any book grabbed me like this one! Absolutely loved the experience. Combination of great women's relationships and good sexual tension. The Pot Belly pig/ Gargoyle is genius. Great character building, dialog, and the plot was fun! The characters have depth, yet they are not evil! (okay, to me it seems like most authors spend way too much time giving the villain some layers)The only bad thing about this book is that there are no more available! Thank you for the ride Juliet!
Not a romance but a story about a witch, who leads a fairly regular life (with very little crush over some men in her life without anything actually happening).
Easy listen not overly exciting but keeps things light and interesting.
The narration was alright, was a bit hard to tell the characters apart at times.
Not sure I would buy the next book in this series (bought this one at a sale)
Definitely. Very easy and entertaining read
light, funny, warm
I laughed out loud several times through out the book
