    Story
    Would you try another book from Julie Kagawa and/or MacLeod Andrews?

    Kagawa - not again. Andrews the narrator - sure.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Julie Kagawa again?

    Not if this is typical of her writing style and characters. I didn't care for the overall feeling of depression and moroseness which seemed (to me) to permeat the story. The prince's character just kept reminding me in way of Thomas covenant (the unbeliever series).

    I ended up fast forwarding through chapters a number of times and wishing the story would get more interesting. I have not read any of the other books in the series and have no desire to do so now.


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I wasn't thrilled with the narrator's versions of the characters but not sure how much of that is due to the book itself. I'd give the narrator another try.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    For me - no. For those who've read the previous books, probably. It continues the story of Megan and Ash (sp?). Though 90% is about Ash and his personal issues.


    Any additional comments?

    Glad I got this one sale :)
