The whole seiries is so compelling that you will be doing your sleeping at work and your reading in bed. Get comfortable with that thought before you pick this one up!
Absolutely! Nothing is better than listening to a great book while driving to work or school. The Narrator, Andrew Troth, did a fantastic job. The story was enthralling and had a good mix of humor and action, and I want to see what happens next!You always miss a few things the first time through a book, so I will have to give this one another listen.
I loved the parts when they go over the history of the war between the Lillen (sp? That is the problem with audio books!) and the Fae. But I have to say that the part that gave me the most pleasure was listening to Robert learn how to talk to his dog!
I loved how Tom Keller mixed in all of the fantasy elements and creatures into a different, almost True Blood worthy, version of how humanity and fantastical creatures coexist along side each other. I can't think of a mythical beast, or species, that wasn't worked into the story, in one form or another. This is the type of Urban Fantasy I like to read!
Idealy, I feel that a first novel in a series should never be able to get more than 4 stars. When you begin a journey with a new story, you need time to get to know the characters. You need to see if the story has the potential to capture your imagination and have you wanting more. You have to know that the majority of the story has not been told before you get to the end, and that is what this book does for me. I don't feel I can rate it 5 stars because I do not yet know if all of the mysteries that have been spelled out, will be resolved in a satisfactory way so it gets 4 stars. All in all, I think this was a good start to a fantasy series and I am eager to make it through the next audio book!
