The main character is terrific. She's just your average person - no super powers, not perfect. You really get where she is coming from. The whole cast is funny and interesting. I absolutely loved the culture of Jersey she captured. Many laugh out loud moments. I continued with the series and they just keep getting better.
I've finished the whole series and can say that they are all quite fun, well written, and interesting. The author handles time travel in a very intelligent and unique way so you're not spending too much time in your head working out the paradoxes. The rest of the plot isn't groundbreaking, but its sense of humor and well-balanced romance make it a worthwhile listen. It's very British and the romance scenes are fairly chaste so it's a good listen for most ages.
from anticipation waiting for the next book to come out! Everything I loved about the first book - real danger, real choices, real dirt and grit. Nobody is perfect and the situation is awful. But there are moments of fun, and laughter and sweetness. We are taking the journey with Evie and I enjoy the heartache. Great book!
I wasn't sure how I felt about the change in narrator initially because I have become attached to Cassie's (and others) voice and cadence, but I very quickly forgot about it as the story moved along. This narrator may even be better! As for the story, it's pretty much what you can expect - lots of action, humor, and sexy teasing. I don't want to give anything away but we learn a lot more about Cassie and Pritkin. Nothing gets tied up, but its really more about the journey than the destination!
I continue to be impressed with these books and this author. This is SUCH a fun story - a good balance of likeable characters, story, and smoking hot sex (but not every 5 seconds - it supplements the story). It is less weighed-down then the first one with world-building details. The story is not silly, or shallow or coarse and I never rolled my eyes. I even got a little misty-eyed over a few scenes. I will absolutely re-listen to these.
The first chapter is a little dense with details, but stick with it. She has a lot information to convey for you to understand the story, but once she gets past that, you are off and running! Its a really interesting world with all the wonderful little steampunk details to make you smile. And the sex, good heavens!
I just loved this book! It's excellent. Author balances the elements artfully - story, danger, romance, reality. It's very cleverly executed with some surprises.
The performance, especially our hero's accent, is swoon-worthy.
So glad I don't have to wait a year for the next one!
It seemed like this book had so much going on that it rushed passed! I enjoyed the character development - people are not static in this story. They are perfectly imperfect and they grow. An excellent addition to the series.
So, I really didn't like the first book in this series. The characters are annoying. But, based on reading a bunch of reviews that said the first was the weakest of the series and my interest in the romantic lead, I opted to try the second. It is better than the first book - less Gossip Girl style drama - but I still find most of the characters are unlikable.
This one is straight down the middle. The story is not unique, but it is fairly well-executed. The writing and dialog is good. The steampunk is there, but it's done with a light hand so its not too annoying. The Victorian manners and speech have been updated so that we can have spirited characters that are not too constrained. The reader's performance starts out a little stilted, but he gets the hang of it pretty quickly.
It's a slow start and I was *just* about to give up when the action kicked in and then I couldn't stop listening. I really like the main characters and they carry the story. The author's do a good job of giving us enough information about them to make us invested but hold back enough to keep us reading.
I was not a fan of Dani in the Fever books. This series makes you understand and like her.
The story is interesting. Great mystery and danger. However, she's 14 and she's being lusted after by some MUCH older men. Its not as icky as it might sound because nothing happens and Dani is not just oblivious, but kinda grossed out by the idea. Its a little heavy-handed at times with emphasizing she's a kid.
I love the heros - all of them. And I'm curious how the story is going to turn out.
