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.
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.
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.
Sometimes bad things happen to good people.
Worth the listen!
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.
The tantalizing attack on the boat and the subsequent defeat of the dark queen was powerfully told by Emily Eiden.
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.
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.
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.
