    Dulcie O’Neil is a fairy. And not the type to frolic in gardens. She’s a Regulator - a law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them from wreaking havoc in the mortal world. When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she’s either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim. Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Find a better writer.


    What could H. P. Mallory have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She needs to decide what genre she is writing and stick with it. It starts off hilarious then tries to be serious, then tries to be a mystery, then a romance. It never finds cohesion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scene is great. The book falls apart after that.


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

    Disappointment. I feel like a wasted a credit on this book.


    Any additional comments?

    The performance is really good, given what the reader had to work with.

    Story

    The Ghost Finders are investigating a haunting at the long-abandoned Haybarn Theater, which is being renovated. But work has been thrown off-schedule by the some peculiar and unnatural activities. And after the potentially world-altering recent events of their previous assignment, the team thinks that a haunted theater (aren't they all?) will be a walk in the park.

    Story
    Where does Ghost of a Dream rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to all of SRG's works and I think this is his best. It's his classic formula of an opening minidrama followed by a great mystery.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are more flushed out and human, while the classic horror is amped up several notches. You can see it unplay like a movie in your mind. He also ties it into many of his other series with character references.


    What does Toby Leonard Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He shifts wonderfully and fluidly between all of the accents of the UK. He is a pleasure to listen to.


    If you could take any character from Ghost of a Dream out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Alester. He plays no less that 4 characters in the book and would be a dinner party in and of himself.


    Any additional comments?

    Brain candy taken to a new fantasy level.
