Publisher's Summary

To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her.

As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question. If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge.

But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line...and there are some lines that should never be crossed.

    Story
    "Vaguely racist narrator?"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Hell Yes! This is easily the most important book in the story so far. Peices of the overarching plot are tied together and made whole, and the status-quo of the series is broken.


    What didn’t you like about Gigi Bermingham’s performance?

    Her portrayal of Keasley is surprisingly racist. I cringed every time he spoke, which was thankfully only very small amounts of time. She tries to keep distinct character voices, but slips into the wrong voices at some points leading to some confusion. Also her pixie voices, while probably more accurate to what the author was going for then with the previous narrator, were none the less aggravating to listen to and broke my suspension of disbelief each time. I found myself hoping my favorite character would remain vacant from scenes to spare my gritted teeth when he talked. On the other hand, I thought her actual narration voice was quite pleasant. If she could stay in the right characters and didn't use voices that made me need to use q-tips after listening, I would totally listen to more of her work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Rachel realized it was time to 'grow up' so-to-speak, it really struck home. Everybody has that sort of moment in their lives and it resonated with me.


    Any additional comments?

    The sudden addition of musical interludes between chapters was unpleasant. It added nothing but extremely awkward pauses before

    "are you kidding me??"
    What disappointed you about The Outlaw Demon Wails?

    I quickly fell in love with the quirky characters in this series, particularly that of Rachel. The old narrator— Margarite Gavin— did an excellent job of bringing the voices to life, perhaps even added a little something extra to the story itself. This new Gigi Bermingham woman is just plain awful. She mispronounces terms, has no understanding of how to keep a cohesive cadence— in a word, she’s crap.So I gotta ask, are you kidding me?? Bring back Margarite!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gigi Bermingham’s performances?

    no

    "enjoyed story, not the narrater."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

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

    The previous narrator, she was lovely


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jenks. He totally knows how to annoy the crap out of someone. He is a crazy pixie with the heart of a god


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gigi Bermingham’s performances?

    Not really. Maybe a series that she starts.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Outlaw Demon Wails?

    The story was ok, the narration though, disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Get Marguerite Gavin back

    I will continue to listen to the series. The book definitely keeps my interest all the way through. The narrator was good.

    "Bad pronunciation ! My eyeballs hurt from rolling."
    What would have made The Outlaw Demon Wails better?

    If the producer would have been consistent with the original pronunciation of so very many key names and words of the story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The book was good but the consistent bad pronunciations were distracting.


    How could the performance have been better?

    If the original narrator would have read it


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

    Glad that it was over.


    Any additional comments?

    I only listened to this book so I would not be behind on the next and had no time to read the hardcover. I really did not enjoy this production or narration.

    "GREAT STORY HORRIBLE NARRATOR,!!"
    If you could sum up The Outlaw Demon Wails in three words, what would they be?

    Fun Exciting Story


    How could the performance have been better?

    In response to the question "How could the performance have been better?" I would simply say never use Gigi again! She is a nightmare. It isn't that I was just use to the voices characterized by Marguerite Gavin but the horrendous pronunciation of Names and even common words. Besides how many people do you know that stresses the 't' in words like writing and such! It became very annoying along with the fact that you couldn't rely on the voices at all to know who was talking. They were inconsistent and mostly sounded alike!
