Marla Mason has been a mercenary, a chief sorcerer, a protector of an entire city, and an occult detective, and now she's a goddess of death...but only part time. She gets to spend six months a year living as a mortal woman on Earth, and she's decided to devote those months to hunting monsters for fun and personal redemption. Armed with ax and dagger, with the living severed head of her worst enemy in a birdcage for a traveling companion, she sets off by motorcycle into the American Southwest on a journey of self-discovery and other destruction.

This audiobook book REALLY needs to be remastered, or re-recorded. It's atrocious. It sounds like it was recorded in a tunnel.
I've liked all of the books in this series so far. However, this is my least favorite. It's written from the perspective that it's taken from Marla's personal journal and Im not a fan of books written as journals. Anyway, this book is about Marla's 1st month on earth, as a human, after spending her 1st month as the Queen of the Underworld.
The narration is pretty good. The audio quality makes it sound bad, but that's not the narrator's fault.
In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
I missed the Marla stories for a while. No one. has ever made a character like this one. Thanks T.A. I enjoyed it and recommend it for all the Marla fans out there.
The narrator is the real star of he show- most of the time. Sometimes for minor character her voice for the narrator and the voice for the character the narrator is interacting with is are too similar, but her other voices, especially for Nicolette are flawless. Sometimes she varies the volume too much which leaves you scrambling for the volume controls.
