    Madison's prom was killer - literally. For some reason she's been targeted by a dark reaper - yeah, that kind of reaper - intent on getting rid of her, body and soul. But before the reaper could finish the job, Madison was able to snag his strange, glowing amulet and get away. Now she's stuck on Earth - dead but not gone.

Fans of the urban fantasy series from Bantam Spectra that began with Blood Engines will find surprising secrets revealed about Marla's past, and new listeners can get to know the character from the very beginning.

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

    A completely different story.


    What could David Niall Wilson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Less creepy and a story line would be good, as it seemed to have none.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Basil Sands?

    Yes sure he was fine


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Gentle Brush of Wings: A Free Short Story from Defining Moments?

    This book was so bad I actually did not finish it. The beginning put me off - dull, slow, creepy. This book is just a really bad porno. Not suitable for teenagers at all.

    Simon Lewis is having some trouble adjusting to his new life as a vampire, especially now that he hardly sees his best friend Clary, who is caught up in training to be a Shadowhunter - and spending time with her new boyfriend, Jace. Simon decides he needs a break and heads out of the city - only to discover that sinister events are following him. Realising that the war they thought they’d won might not yet be over, Simon has to call on his Shadowhunter friends to save the day - if they can put their own splintering relationships on hold long enough to rise to the challenge….

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Book was OK I just disliked the ending. Anyone who had read the series would be disappointed.


    What was most disappointing about Cassandra Clare’s story?

    I have read many others previous books in this series, loved them all. this one the ending was horrible left too many unanswered questions. Felt confused. This book seemed unnecessary and the series could have finished with the third book


    What about Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn ’s performance did you like?

    These guys did OK, but it is annoying when the narrators are changed during a series


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

    Disappointment
