I might listen to something else by Peter Lerangis but most likely not another in this series.
the main characters are supposed to be 13 year olds but the narrator was obviously an adult trying to sound like a kid. It just didn't work.
I couldn't get through the book. The idea sounded cool when I read the synopsis but it didn't come through. When I saw the recommendation from Rick Riordan, I was hoping it would be at least of a similar quality. It seemed like there were quirky characters just for the sake of being quirky. I liked the 4 kids but couldn't get invested in them.
The story and the humor were good. The narrator was a bit rushed at times and the voices tended to blend together too much.
I don't like Rachel. I find her to be one of the most selfish characters I've ever "met". She has no self awareness and doesn't think about the consequences of her actions. I root for her only so Jinx and Ivy don't suffer. I really like the stories though, so I overlook her blatantly self-destructive behavior, the adrenaline flowing in and out of her body like the tides and the constant affirmations of "I'm a White Witch". I love series with strong female lead characters like Eve Dallas or Anita Blake so it's refreshing to have a series with a main character who can't do it all.
Don't get me wrong. I think the series is original and entertaining. When listening it's easier to hear how often her adrenaline gives her headaches.
I will continue listening to the series.
