Robyn Peltier moved to Los Angeles after her young husband's sudden death. Though she's still grieving, the challenges of her new life as the PR consultant to Portia Kane - the world's most famous celebutante wannabe - can sometimes be amusing, even distracting. But when her client is gunned down in a nightclub, Robyn is suddenly on the run as the prime suspect in the murder. And as more bodies pile up around her, it seems like only Hope Adams, Robyn's best friend, and Hope's somewhat spooky boyfriend Karl are on Robyn's side. But it's not the police Hope is worried about, and the only way Hope can keep her friend alive is by letting her enter a world she's safer knowing nothing about.

I really liked this book. I found the storyline fascinating even though it didn't follow the same format as earlier books in the series. The only thing that bothered me was the narrator. First, it was a different narrator than earlier books so the voices were different than what I was used to. Second, her male voices were a bit weird. Third, I'm from Philly and her attempt at a Philly accent was terrible-not to mention Hope is supposed to be a society girl and the voice lacked sophistication or confidence. All that being said, the narration wasn't so bad as to ruin the story. Definitely worth a listen, but I hope Book 10 is better.
I grew up in a household full of books. I love reading, and I love having someone read to me.
I love these books. They're brain candy. Unfortunately this narrator would pull me out of the story by mispronunciation.
The worst was pronouncing Jamie Vegas name wrong. (As Hie-Me not Jay-Me)
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
We meet Hope Adams in this book. Now Hope is a brand new character in the series and plays the main character. She has a pension for Chaos. Through Hope we learn a lot more about Karl Marsden who appeared in earlier books in not so flattering ways. In this work, he make the full transition from bad guy to good guy.
This series is excellent as the plots vary and keep interest. I like the universe of characters. Armstrong sticks to her theme, premise and does an excellent job of putting a plot around them. I leave it to you to figure out what they are. Jen Taylor's narration is first rate.
It is a excellent next read.
I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
I know this is the Women of the Otherworld series... but Finn was my favorite part of this book. He was great. More!
she detracted by being the narrator she was terrible. she mutilated the voices and she mispronounced names. it would have been better if she had not attempted voices at all.
I LOVE Kelly Armstrong. I love her writing and I love the series. I was very upset when I realized the narrator was so terrible! she has no sense for the characters, and she cannot even come close to a passable male voice. Karl sounds like someone is constantly choking him, and her female voices are almost as bad. They are difficult to tell apart and they sound like 16 year old brainless twits. Also how the hell do you repeatedly mispronounce Jamie as Haime?!? I could understand if the character was male or hispanic, but the character is FEMALE and a REDHEAD! I was very sad to see such a great stories ruined by a incompetent narrator.
I was totally disappointed while listening to this story, because the narrator did not do her homework at all. There were mispronunciations, and characters had different accents from previous stories. The narrator also sounded too ... young and whiny.
I don't understand how the narrator got
I really enjoyed the story, however I was very use to everyone in the story having some type of power and it was just a little disappointing that Robyn is just human.
The narrator was horrible. She gave Hope Adams a New Jersey accent and her male characters sound absurd.
I think both are very good.
This story was in third person. Usually women of the otherworld are first person experience
The narrator's voice is very versatile.
With the exception of messing up one of the character's names, the narrator was very good. I don't blame her. I blame the director. This was book nine, No Humans Involved had already been printed.
