I like the story, the series has been great, and this story is on par with the rest of the series. The problem is with the narrator. Ms St Claire has a very sweet voice, but she sounds very, very young. I picture the female lead as a 12 year old because of the narrators voice. This narrator would be better suited for childrens books or young adult. Her Scottish and Portugese accents are better than a few other narrators that have read books in this series have been...I just find the youth of her voice very distracting.
This series seems to struggle with finding a really good narrator, the publisher needs to find someone who can handle different accents well, and that has the ability to do both male and female voices.
This book was very enjoyable, not too heavy or angsty like some urban fantasy can be. The characters were believable and fun. The supernatural premise was unique and promises to be something the author can build on in future books in the series (because it is obvious this will be a series).
If there was one criticism, it would be that the main conflict in the book was resolved a little too easily for my taste, I think the story might have been more interesting if there was more to the resolution between the main protagonist and the main antagonist- rather than the quick fix it ended up being.
Other than that, I think it was a great initial book in the series, and I can't wait to read the next book.
I would avoid any books narrated by Charlotte Hill. She does not have the ability to change her voice for different characters like any good narrator can. Her English accent pervades all - even the LA based characters!
Not as good as previous Gentry books.
Bring back Laurel Merlington! She was a great narrator for the other books. Unless she died, or was otherwise not available, please use her for future books!
If not Merlington, pick someone who can do multiple voices well.
Molly Harper's books make me laugh out loud!
Dick Chaney has to be my favorite, he is such a loveable scoundrel.
Amanda does great character voices! Her voices are the perfect fit for Ms Harpers humorous characters.
Molly's books make me laugh out loud!
I already have listened to this book more than once. This book was a great listen.
Same great characters you expect from Molly Harper, and great humor, but this story was a little less "Screwball" than some of her other books. This book is a bit more serious in its' subject matter.
Amanda is a great narrator, she is one of those readers that brings the characters to life and can really express the humor in Molly's stories.
I love this series. The narrator is good, Ms. Holloway does a creditable job with accents and differentiating character voices...and there are a LOT of characters to keep track of in these books! The plot thickens in this series, and it is starting to get a little muddled. It is still a great series, I just wonder how much farther the author can take it. in the last book and this one Cassie kills a god (little "g" but still). What does a girl do for an encore after that?
Pritkin. He comes through for Cassie every time; he is reliable, constant, selfless and pretty damn badass; and the sexual tension between them is not to bad either...the only problem is Cassie doesn't seem to even realize she has feelings for him.
I have listened to all of the Cassandra Palmer series so far...and the first two in the Dorina Basarab series. This one is my least favorite so far in the Cassie Palmer series...but not by much, it is still pretty darn good.
Not a one sitting obsession book, but maybe 2 or 3
The book itself is excellent (as are most of the books in the Dragonriders of Pern series). What was disapointed was the quality of the recording, it sounded like it was recorded in a tunnel...even when downloaded at the best audio quality Audible offers. The narrator was also not up to Anne McCaffrey standards for previous books. The audiobook overall sounded amateurish.
