I REALLY LIKED THIS ONE. FINIALLY LIZZY IS LIZZY AND NOT STEPHIANE. JANET GOT IT RIGHT. DIESEL WELL ENOUGH SAID. READY FOR THE NEXT ONE. WORTH EVERY PENNY. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.
Perhaps that is just me though. I wouldn't avoid this title or the story it is just that it feels familiar and perhaps too familiar. I found the story interesting but somewhat formulaic in nature, at times it seems as if I am hearing a reformulated version of Stephanie Plum (Diesel and Wolf substituted for Morelli and Ranger). The crazy woman running around torching everything and everyone is good, but if this is what I can expect from the "Wicked Series" it will not be on my buy immediately list for long. Janet needs to add real spice to her writing genres, by introducing real relationships rather than the tired same old same old two guys and which do I choose.
Lorelei King does a good job as narrator as usual, however, I associate her as Stephanie. It is too bad another talented female narrator wasn't chosen to voice these characters. Yes... Yes... I know she voiced Diesel in the other series, but still it just seems to much of the same old renamed.
A very exciting story contain some magic , relationships that are close but remain plutonic. Friends help each other. The whole story is rated , PG 14 with some sexual content , but only on
The periphery most times. Very humorous but the intrigue keeps the reader amused. Very little serious violence ; enough to add some realism that keeps the reader interested has to be present so the reader has an appreciation of good and evil, but on the light side. Good wins out in the end with the need for moral compass. I enjoyed the story that injects small incidents of mild violence and sometimes humor that interspersed with mild violence and confrontations on that does not dilute the concentration of the story- line; ending makes the reader feel something important has been accomplished. This gives a boost to the general reason that the reader and the author can have a good experience and one can deduce that something moral is accomplished.
While I am a huge fan of Janet Evanovich's this book tended to drag a little. It still held sharp humor and kept you guessing to the very end but there where long periods that dragged on.
If you are looking for something light hearted and fun. This is the book and the narrator Lorelei is my fav
I listened to each book within 2 weeks time, I couldn't wait for each book! I really thought it was good and had some seriously good laughs. If you like witchcraft type books then you will definitely like this series.
