    Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey - ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.

    Meagan says: "better than part 1"
    "Narrator is great, message to teen girls is poor"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not, unless they were fantasy fanatics.


    Would you recommend The Iron Daughter to your friends? Why or why not?

    Same as above.


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

    No.


    Could you see The Iron Daughter being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could see it, and I could see it being very popular.


    Any additional comments?

    Only a few thoughts for teen fiction authors. Please please please create strong female characters. And I don't mean girls whose only strength lies in how well they can wield a weapon or who can defy authority without thought. I mean girls who don't fall in love with "ice princes" or vampires--with older men who abuse them. Instead, make them beautiful and admirable from the inside out. Make them sexy, yes, but independent. Make them resourceful and sure, romantic, but not dumb asses. Megan had potential. But Julie Kagawa failed her, epically.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Chris says: "Finally, a modern day fantasy that really hits the"
    "The dog is the bomb."

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Sure! Totally entertaining.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Oberon the wolf-hound. Hands-down.


    Could you see Hounded being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    um. no.


    Any additional comments?

    I would listen to the rest of this series for the voice of the dog alone. Brilliant!

    Raised by loving adoptive parents, San Francisco private investigator Wyatt Hunt never had an interest in finding his birth family-until he gets a chilling text message from an unknown number: "How did ur mother die?"

    A.C. says: "An okay read"
    "Hold out for another narrator."

    Would you try another book from John Lescroart and/or Eric Dawe?

    Lescroart? Yes! In a heartbeat. Eric Dawe? No freakin' way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As much as I was able to listen to it, it's classic Lescroart. Love him.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I'm not sure this is his calling.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I'm super disappointed that spent one credit on a book I don't think I can finish listening to.
