While it's true that this gives a view of what a rock star's life might be like, for those who've enjoyed the Skolian saga, there are many small pieces that come together. I like the narrator, though I am sorry that he had to try to sing; his gift is effective reading.
A solid plot, and a good advancing of the meta story about Rachel's identity and background.
Rachel drives me nuts at times, but then we are reminded of the people she loves who have died. She is not slow to grow, but at least she is frustrated with herself.
The big disappointment, that seemed to show up whenever I forgot it, was that this narrator did not know how to pronounce the name of the famous musician who has a bigger role in this book than earlier ones.
The big reveal of Rachel's personal life is almost worth winding back.
I read far more books with my eyes than my ears, but Elizabeth Rodgers does such a superb job with this series that I am not even tempted to go out and buy the print book; I want to hear the story in her "Georgina" voice. Mead's beguiling succubus makes a great first-person narrator (usually not a favorite for me).
This reader does very well with a familiar story. Like others, I can't wait for the rest of the series, and hope this reader is given the opportunity to read more.
