Really not worth your time, I'm a Mercedes lackey fan and I have no illusions that she produces great literature. But wow this book was terrible, boring plot, uninspired characters, pointless rape scene, no interesting magical world building tidbits. The most frustrating part was that the plot and main character were almost completely recycled from another of the elemental masters books. Also the narrator mispronounced a lot of words, I'm not talking about accents but actually said words wrong, although her voice acting was pretty good.
This book left me stressed out and frustrated. At no point did I feel convinced there was any advantage to being an introvert. And most of her advice for dealing with workplace issues would leave my coworkers thinking I was utterly insane. Very disappointed.
Just a bad novel, it reminded me of the book I tried to write when I was 13, shallow character, boring plot, and the reader made everyone's voice vapid and annoying, frankly I didn't finish it.
Troy and probably Helen too
Really didnt enjoy it, the characters were boring, their romance was forced and the plot plodded along without ever giving me a surprise. Not as good as his other work, which on the whole I adore.
This book desperately needs better dialog, a bit more plot, and a bit less predictability
I love this genere, but it does have the intrinsic flaw of being aim for 14 year old girls. Don't talk down to young people, they can handle a little more complexity.
The reader was pretty good, I'm sure she is the only. Thing that made this book tolerable.
Don't pay full price for this one
i wish it was interesting and not about 90's pop culture.
boredom and irritation
i truly uninteresting book, i had high hopes for it, but wow, it sucked. Perhaps if i was passionately opinionated about pop music or found this obnoxious author engaging and clever as he thinks he is... no probably not
