I love urban love stories and books filled with supernatural creatures and this fit the bill on both. The reader was great and the trolls in the story caught my attention and imagination. Highly recommend this second in a series book, a cross over from the Mercy series.
I would never have bought this book in print. When it comes to print I like my fantasy dark and bloody and, therefore, would have skipped right over this book. The reader did add a lot to the enjoyment of this book, so audio was a good choice.
I liked most of the characters but not to the point where I picked a favorite.
When someone caught the alien looking like a headless dog.
Not really any moving scenes. This was more comedy than tragedy.
I'm glad I bought this book but also really glad it was on sale when I did.
It's urban fantasy. Meaning that unless an urban fantasy book is just plain stupid or boring I'm going to enjoy giving it a try. Red-Headed Stepchild wasn't the best fantasy book ever written but was entertaining enough I didn't regret buying it. Sometimes this is enough of an endorsement to get me hooked on a series, sometimes not. In this one, let me say, I would buy the next book in the series if it were on sale but wouldn't ever think about paying the full price for it.
Most interesting was a new twist to how vampires came to be. Least was that the plot was pretty predictable. I called almost every move the main character was about to make long before she made it.
Not that bad.
I think I smirked a few times when listening to it but I did not laugh out loud. As far as crying while listening to it, no, I never came close.
You could do worse.
I listened to the other G.R.R.M books on audio and didn't love the narration but didn't cringe either. I cringe listening to this book. I have made it through the first part but not sure if I can stomach listening to the whole thing.
I loved this book. Loved the reader. Can't say enough good things about it. Can't wait for the next book in the series to come out on audio.
The first narrator couldn't have sounded more like Pooh's sad friend if he tried. I expected him to sigh heavily after each sentence. Save your credit
