    Evie's paranormal past keeps coming back to haunt her. A new director at the International Paranormal Containment Agency wants to drag her back to headquarters. The Dark Faerie Queen is torturing humans in her poisonous realm. And supernatural creatures keep insisting that Evie is the only one who can save them from a mysterious, perilous fate. The clock is ticking on the entire paranormal world. And its fate rests solely in Evie's hands. So much for normal.

    Story
    What did you love best about Endlessly?

    Narrator Emily Eiden does a wonderful job changing her voice for each character. From a sharp witch to Lend's gentleness, from Evie's vampire friend's sarcasm to the disturbing darkness of the Dark Queen's piercing inquiry, Emily transforms between each voice flawlessly.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Endlessly?

    The tantalizing attack on the boat and the subsequent defeat of the dark queen was powerfully told by Emily Eiden.


    Have you listened to any of Emily Eiden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to the entire trilogy by Kiersten White and loved the way that each book was told by Emily Eiden. It had me on the edge of my seat gripping the armrest in anticipation and wonder if Evie would escape with her life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The way Emily told it, the jokes really packed a punch and I found myself involuntarily bursting into laughter while driving and listening to the book.


    Any additional comments?

    The whole story was quite moving and I enjoyed listening to Emily's skilled characters each time I got into my car. Even if I was driving for 5 minutes, I couldn't wait to hear a little bit more.

    Not your everyday coming-of-age novel. This story was supposed to be about Evie - how she hasn't made a friend in years, how she tends to stretch the truth (especially about her so-called relationship with college drop-out Jonah Luks), and how she finally comes into her own once she learns to just be herself. But it isn't. Because when her classmate Elizabeth "Zabet" McCabe's murdered body is found in the woods, everything changes and Evie's life is never the same again.

    What did you love best about The Space Between Trees?

    The story, wonderfully told by Emily Eiden, captures and acts out teenage angst in a realistic (and shocking) way which makes it relatable and interesting.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jonah Lukes - he was just a guy going about his business. He was a steady force in the plot that gave the story its foundation.


    What does Emily Eiden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emily's voice is a natural for the main character Evie, she read the part with ease. Emily is also skilled at bringing out the different characters in the story. You can hear the sarcasm, glee and rage in Hadley's altering moods. You can feel the sorrow of 'Zibette's father's loss. Emily clearly captured Evie's mother's narcissism. I gasped in horror at the yowl when Jonah got hurt.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sometimes bad things happen to good people.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the listen!
