I have not read the print version yet, however, the audio edition was so good that I plan to purchase the entire series in print and keep them as a family classic to share for generations to come.
That is difficult to answer without giving things away, so I will try to keep it vague for those who have not read it yet. It was Sabrina's secret weapon that ended up saving the day.
His unique inflections for each voice make you forget that there is only one person doing the voices.
Although this is a light story, where one wouldn't expect to be overly moved, there are plenty of heart warming moments and surprisingly a few that make you a bit a sad.
If you are looking for fun new adventure series to read with your children and even young teenagers I highly recommend this series. My child and I loved reading these, discussing the characters, the direction of the stories and debating which ones we liked best.
I'm notorious for not quitting a book, no matter how bad, until I reach the end. I could not force myself past the third chapter. Just too slow.
Good story and the narrator was genius at portraying the various characters. I liked the way it all flowed and came together and I found it to be an interesting plot, however it just wasn't my cup of tea. I got a little bored because I had a difficult time identifying with the main character. I would not fault the author with this though, it is simply a case of not finding every well written character interesting. I think I would have found Charity to be much more interesting.
I’ve been a huge Mercy Thompson fan ever since I happened to stumble across a signed copy of the first book in the series at my local book store. When I saw this one I was concerned that maybe the series was starting to get dragged out and that this book would be disappointing. I’m thrilled to say that my fears were unfounded. Patricia Briggs managed to keep the story going without turning it into a cliché soap opera.
I did not have high expectations for this book since the introduction so clearly stated it was Patricia Briggs first book and it had not sold well. I was so pleasantly surprised to find it be a well written and well rounded story. I HIGHLY recommend this story.
It could very well be that I so love the "Hollow's" series by Kim Harrison that I found myself just a tiny bit disappointed at spots in this book. BUT, Dawn Cook's ability to write characters that you can both love and want to kick in the pants definitely made this an enjoyable story. It may have been better if the cover had not so clearly stated that Dawn Cook and Kim Harrison were one and the same. However I might not have bothered to listen to the book then. The story was entertaining enough that I'll be sure to check out its sequel.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As a sequel to Masques I really could not have asked for a more engaging and satisfying story. I found it be a wonderful exercise in story telling for both the Author and the Narrator. The lead characters were so alive in my mind as the story unfolded. I highly recommend this book, especially if you have already read the first one.
Loved this story. Sabrina is a little snot, but a tough cookie and Daphne is just adorable. Puck is a wonderful anti-hero! Highly recommend this book and this series.
I always enjoy Kim Harrison's series "The Hollows". I rated this one a 4 out of 5 because I can't decide if I like that there were clearly two story lines in this book. I wasn't sure if she was setting up for a spin off focusing on Ivy or if she was setting us up for the next book. I like the closure she gives us for Rachael's past relationships and the continued build up for a romantic involvement between Trent and Rachael. I'm interested to see how this will play out.
I found the voice and the audio in this to be very creepy. I couldn't listen to more than about three minutes before I had to shut off. Just not my cup of tea.
