Publisher's Summary

Constance Verity has been saving the world since she was seven, and she's sick of it. She sets off on one last adventure to reset her destiny and become the one thing she's never been: ordinary.

Ever since she was granted a wish at birth by her fairy godmother, Constance Verity has become the world's great adventurer. She is a master of martial arts and a keen detective and possesses a collection of strange artifacts. Constance has spent the past 28 years saving the world, and she's tired of it. All she wants is to work in an office and date a nice, normal guy. And she's figured a way out.

The only problem is that saving the world is Constance's destiny. She's great at it, and there are forces at work to make sure she stays in the job.

Then again, it's also her destiny to have a glorious death.

    "Baffled by the enthusiasm"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Young readers. Not "young adult" - young.


    Would you ever listen to anything by A. Lee Martinez again?

    No.


    Have you listened to any of Cynthia Farrell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not. I think she is quite good... better than many on Audible... not as good as the best.


    Any additional comments?

    I like a light and fun read. So not faulting that, in any way. But I am baffled by the comments which caused me to buy this -- such as "fantastic ride", "masterfully", "ultimate female action comedy" and "laugh out loud". To me it seems like lightweight writing, severely lacking in substance. I can only think it is for young readers - but I don't see that stated.

    "Terrific story"

    This was a great read. It was funny, yes, but also had heart and adventure and a great sense of wonder. Highly recommended.

    I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!

    "another good book"

    I have most of A. Lee Martinez audio books. I keep a look out for any new ones. This book is good. A little more serious but humor still present. It was fun seeing a non super hero at work. I do wish a little more detail about the fairy godmother could have been given. Cynthia Farrell does a good job. She is excellent as Connie and her friend. The male voices sounded a little too much alike. These are enjoyable characters in a good story.

    "not up to his usual standards"

    the last two books by this author have been nowhere near as good as his previous works. Nowhere near as funny, or is interesting or entertaining. If you're a big fan, you will still get something out of this. but don't go in expecting much.

    "I liked it, but not my favorite from Mr. Martinez"

    This is an enjoyable book. I do recommend it.
    Still, it's not Mr. Martinez's best work.
