    From the author of the Chicagoland Vampires novels, a new series about a boarding school filled with something worse than homework. Lily's parents have sent her to a fancy boarding school in Chicago filled with the ultra-rich. If that wasn't bad enough, she's hearing and seeing bizarre things on St. Sophie's creepy campus. Her roommate, Scout, keeps her sane, but keeps disappearing at night. When one day Lily finds Scout running from real-life monsters, she learns the hard way that Scout is involved in a splinter group of rebel teens.They protect Chicago from demons, vamps, and dark magic users....

    Would you try another book from Chloe Neill and/or Mary Kane?

    Chloe...yes. Mary...no.


    What other book might you compare Firespell to and why?

    I don't know.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mary Kane?

    Katie Schorr


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Firespell?

    Book is fine but a very hard listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Not pleased at all. Get a new narrator!! Very robotic!!

    Seventeen-year-old Alice Bonham's life feels out of control after she meets Jack. With his fondness for pink Chuck Taylors and New Wave hits aside, Jack's unlike anyone she's ever met. Then she meets his brother, Peter. His eyes pierce through her, and she can barely breathe when he's around. Even though he can't stand the sight of her, she's drawn to him. But falling for two very different guys isn't even the worst of her problems. Jack and Peter are vampires, and Alice finds herself caught between love and her own blood....

    Would you try another book from Amanda Hocking and/or Hannah Friedman?

    Book was ok. Narrator does not match emotions of characters. Audio book has TONS of differences from written book which makes it extremely frustrating to use Whispersync.


    What didn’t you like about Hannah Friedman’s performance?

    Her emotions don't match that of the chAracters.

    Sydney Sage is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. In the Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her...But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, one of the main characters has had an english accent for the last SEVEN books and now it's gone?? Ruins the whole book and experience.


    What didn’t you like about Emily Shaffer and Alden Ford ’s performance?

    Alden Ford should have used a british accent as Emily Shaffer did in previous books.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, if the actors kept to character as Alden Ford did not.
