    I must be brave. I must do what has to be done. I am Alice. Alice is the most powerful witch the county has ever seen. She may one day be the most evil. But Alice is also the best friend - and true love - of Tom Ward. Together they work to defeat the Fiend - the world's greatest evil - once and for all. They have nearly everything they need, all except a blade hidden in the Dark, the Fiend's domain. So Alice ventures there to find it. She faces the most terrifying creatures in existence. And she once again battles old enemies who bear grudges: Bony Lizzie, Bloodeye, and more.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I've bought and listened to every single book in this series. I always look forward to another book in the series with relish and anticipation. I loved the idea of having a book in Alice's point of view, however the narrator absolutely ruined it for me. If the author reads these ratings PLEASE PLEASE let Christopher Evan Welch do the narration in the future. He is absolutely fantastic and gets me really involved in the story. I almost gave up on this book because I couldnt stand the narrator and that has never happened to me before with this series. I will defintiely not be buying any more books in the series if Angela Goethals is kept as narrator. Christopher did such an amazing Alice... why change a good thing???


    What didn’t you like about Angela Goethals’s performance?

    Compared to Christopher, her narration of the story was dull and boring. I actually felt sleepy listening to her voice and drifting from the story.


    Was I Am Alice worth the listening time?

    I really wanted to love this book because I love Alice's character. I just couldnt get over the monotone voice that at some parts were breathy like Marilyn Monroe? I didnt know if the narrator was trying to sound scared or excited?


    Any additional comments?

    The story itself is interesting and had promise. Just couldnt get into book because of narrator.
