Book 2 in the best-selling English Pandora series by popular Australian author Tara Moss.
It's been two months since Pandora English left her small hometown to live with her mysterious great-aunt in a haunted mansion in Spektor - the fog-wreathed suburb of Manhattan that doesn't appear on any map. With the help of her great-aunt and the beautiful - but dead - Lieutenant Luke, Pandora is beginning to understand the significance of the Lucasta family heritage her late mother kept secret from her. Pandora is heir to a great gift. And with that comes frightening responsibility....
Meanwhile, she seems doomed to be forever underestimated in the mortal world. Her fashion editor boss doesn't seem to know she exists. But New York needs Pandora's special gifts. There is a new designer in town, and her ambitions extend far beyond taking over the fashion world one knit at a time....

This is a fun supernatural series...what I love is that it never drags...ever. Just fun, creative and very upbeat. While the actress in each book of the series is different, they're all upbeat and perfectly set the tone for each book. I was concerned about this, but they were all so similar you barely noticed.
I give it three stars because it is an interesting story in what I thought was a fantasy novel.
When I noticed Biblical parallels (only on the dark side) I was way creeped out...and that was before she gives acknowledgement to the Wiccan Goddess Fiona Horne at the end! What??
Just my opinion.
"A light listen"
As I have not read the print edition this is difficult but the narrator certainly made it an interesting listen. The fact that the narrator of this second book in the series was different from the first does not detract from it.
All of it but the descriptive passages of the house are very good.
I have not listened to any other narration a by Luci.
Very nearly did listen to it in one go.
Have downloaded the third in the series on the basis of the enjoyment of one and two!
