While the narrator was wonderful and the writer talented, I just couldn't get into the characters in this book. I felt that the differences/similarities between the dimensions were not different enough in some cases, but the things that were very different just seemed odd. I just found myself not really caring what happened to the main character and felt she made really bad choices.
I laughed from the very beginning to the end! The narrator was excellent and the main charactor, Jace, is an FBI Agent with an attitude. Her quick witt and I'll kick the crap out of anyone who challenges me approch is refreshing and funny.
I have'nt enjoyed myself this much in quite awhile, a good story, many good charactors, all with good solid roles pulls you into the story and makes you feel as you are there with them. The narrator did an excellent job on all parts with no problems identifying each charrictor by sound alone. Johanna Parker is perhaps the best female narrator I have come across.
I highly recommend this book. Non stop action, comedy, with a solid story and lovable hero.
I have never read the print version (time constraints).
It's not-your-average suspense. The supernatural elements make the story better.
She has a natural talent and command with her voice! It only got better as the story advanced.
Nice mythical twist on the classic detective story.
Book-aholic and Craft-aholic. I have a great variety interests of when it comes to books and crafts. I have a very open mind when it comes to books, music, gardening and crafts. So I may go on tangent of topic , but it does change genera so you will find out my views on many subjects though it is seldom I am a black and white but more of a grey person, depending on the subject.
different twist to similar story
too many to choose but the usually included the funnies
Need more books with the paranormal twist with more humor I like to laugh along with the tense action filled chase story.
I haven't read this in a very long time and I remembered liking it so I picked it up. I don't recall feeling. As annoyed with the protagonist as I did this time around. Her standoffish nature can often be more frustrating than edgy. Ah, well! On to the next one in the series, though!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
A little bit confusing at first, but I was a bit sidetracked with other things. Humorous a couple of times and I like the heroine, but she didn't really do anything but go to crime scene after crime scene and not know what was going on. The world building has potential, but falls short on the details. Is it a parallel world with pires and thropes (vampires and lycanthropes), and with supposedly half the people in our world are in it, only they are different. Why is she not in this world too as her parallel self. The same history as ours was used with enough of the same real details, but things have changed understandable, but what is weird is the things that are the same youtube for example. In my opinion the author could not pull off the world building. There was no romance to this story. The story does hint that there may be some romance later in the series, but with who is unknown since she has a weird connection to at least four different guys. I would classify this book as a urban fantasy. The storyline and the heroine are enough to finish the book, but I just didn't accept the world that was built, I don't believe I will be continuing on with the series. I do love the narrator she has read many series that I have enjoyed.
this book was so funny I found myself giggling through it. it was amazing and I can't wait to pick up the second one. if it is as good as the first I know I won't be disappointed.
I enjoyed the characters and storyline. My problem with this book are the numerous similarities between the two dimensions. It was irritating. If you are able to set aside your disbelief, and if you love vampires/werewolf stories...this is a good read.
This book is definitely worth the credit or the price.
I'm really enjoying this book (I'm about 2/3 through), even though I'm not a big fan of vampire or lycanthrope stories. It's like a film noir or old-style mystery with a supernatural twist. I've been listening to too many books that can't hold my attention, but this one not only keeps my attention, I look forward to listening to it every night.
The narrator is perfect for the part. My only complaint, however minor, is that she talks too fast. That, alone, wouldn't be a problem, but the book is written in such a way that one moment the protagonist is thinking, and the next moment talking. The way the narrator speeds through these moments makes it difficult to tell where the thinking stops and the speaking begins. But Joanna Parker does such a good job capturing the personality it's easily overlooked.
5 stars across the board.
I love Jace's witty, snarky attitude. She is quick on her feet and says what she wants. The alternate world theme reminds me of the television show Fringe - different but just as good. I really like the idea of an FBI profiler needed in this world and that the NSA had to kidnap her to get her services.
Really loving the new terminology to describe the vampires and weres! Hilarious scene when Jace is looking for music lol
Action packed! I also like the way B.B. reveals Jace's vulnerability to her new reality!
The narrator is fabulous! Love her voice and her ability to voice separate distinct characters.
Really looking forward to the next book in the series!
