    Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena's Claiming. Even Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals is affected - and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What - or who - will need to be sacrificed?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The storyline and character development/connections could have been much stronger. I really don't care about Lena and Ethan's relationship and love for each other. They bore me as a couple. I cared more about Liv and Ama and their relationships with Ethan. Lena seems really annoying to me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm going to re-listen to Divergent and Insurgent to get ready for Allegiant in October.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The reader, Kevin Collins, did a good job.

    Becky and her two-year-old daughter, Minnie, have relocated to L.A. to join her husband, Luke, who is there to handle PR for famous actress Sage Seymour. Becky can't wait to start living the A-list lifestyle, complete with celebrity sightings, yoga retreats, and shopping trips to Rodeo Drive. But she really hopes to become a personal stylist - Sage's personal stylist - if only Luke would set up an introduction.

    Would you try another book from Sophie Kinsella and/or Clare Corbett?

    Of course, I would try another Sophie Kinsella book - I love the Shopaholic series and her other works under SK. I would not, however, particularly enjoy listening to Clare Corbett again.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story should have continued....towards the end of this book, it seemed very rushed to tie up what loose ends were tied. The ending left much to be desired. Good setup for a sequel, I suppose.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Clare Corbett’s performances?

    No. Her voice for Becky was ok, but her "American" accent for the characters in Hollywood were pretty much atrocious and not consistent. Bryce sounded like a Muppet and several other voices sounded like drag queens.


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

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    For Book 8, which there must clearly be, I really, really hope the narrator is different. I wish this book could have continued onward to complete more story lines, but I guess I will just have to wait for the next one.

    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If this was actually a sequel to Revenge Wears Prada, this would be 5 stars. Just because you use the same names as a prior book doesn't make the subsequent book a sequel!


    What was most disappointing about Lauren Weisberger’s story?

    The most disappoint thing was that this was not a sequel to Revenge Wears Prada!!!! It was just a story about people with the same name....and the story was very weak and shallow.


    Did Megan Hilty do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes. The reader was fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment - angry that I wasted a credit and soooooooo disappointed because I love, love, loved Revenge Wears Prada.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your credits or time with this. Terrible.
