When I have to listen to a series more or twice for that matter it's impressive. McGuire is great at giving you just enough of information to send your imagination running wild. She creates characters like the sea witch actually likable, there are no flat or one-dimensional characters waiting here. Toby has grown and we were on the journey with her, she has finally gotten the point that she better find out her legacy, and learn how to use it to protect herself and those she loves. Give it a try but start at the beginning.
If you enjoy material concerning sexual intercourse between close relatives, by all means please purchase this audiobook. But if you are mentally stable please run. I just could not believe the author would take us on that journey. I mean this is Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Huff hasn't the imagination of a flea. She will not get another chance.
I have been a fan of Greek myth ever since I found the section in the back of my 6th grade lit. book, so I had to give Nikki Glass a chance. I think the author could have done so much more with this first novel, and though I was not blown away I will still have to listen to the second before calling it quits. She has some really good material and this series could turn out to be great.
Was it slow? Yes but Rachel is at a turning point, she has had to come with the terms of her new status, give her some room. Harrison is building a new plot again she needed this filler book to get us there. I missed Al he will definitely be around in the future.
I enjoy this genre, but this was not an easy listen. It seems the heroine is the only one with brains. How can she know more than the "old races". It reminded me of the Gargoyle cartoon I watched as a child.
Her books only get better!
