This is an interesting story. I liked the characters and dialogue. Over all the story is well written and holds your attention.
The narrator does a fairly good job of making the different characters sound and feel different.

Listening to Ever Fire, book 2, without reading or listening to book 1 was a mistake. I had a problem keeping my head straight about some of the characters and happenings. Alexia Purty is a good writer so maybe I'll go back and start with book 1. Nancy Peterson always has a great voice for narration and this one is no different!
I was given this audio book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
I like a wide range of genres. Favorites include Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, Thriller, LGBT, classics and history.
I'm enjoying this series very much. I'll read just about any urban fantasy, but this one is quickly becoming a fav. Dark and a little bit angsty, just how I like it.
The narrator gave a good performance. Very well done.

I liked this sequel to Evershade. It did seem to be lacking in some areas, but overall it was decent. There was an ongoing repetitive quality and I think the book would've benefitted from additional development of the secondary characters. Despite this, I will be reading the next book in the series because I am interested in seeing where it leads.

I might listen to the rest of the series. The concept of this world and a fairy world was interesting. I think listening to the first book first would be best.
Not sure why she calls her mother by her first name. It makes her seem very distant and awkward.

I love books!
Absolutely! Alexia Purdy is one of my go to writers. If she writes it I'm going to read and listen to it. That being said Ever Fire continues Shade journey through the land of faery. Shade meeting her grandmother is one of my favorite scenes in any book. Soap of course stole my heart and is Shade doesn't pick him I want him! The story is so deep, the characters so rich this is one I will listen to over and over again.
Her meeting her grandmother
It's a tie between Soap and Lana
A sad scene- no spoilers here - that happens during a fight
This is a series you will want to listen to over and over
"A fast paced and engaging sequel"
Yes I would. It was a very fast paced and character driven book. Very interesting and likeable characters, especially Shade and the adventures and world that you are drawn into make it a book that you can easily come back too.
Shade. The story draws you in and you care about her character. Will she find out about her father and any other family and what about the people who she grew up with. She's interesting, strong enough, vulnerable enough and complex enough to be a character that you connect with.
Shade is a great character. I thought the narration of all of them and the entire book was great but both the narration and the writing bring our main character to the fore front.
I can honestly say that I was drawn into the book from the start. It feels full of life and Shade is coming into her own, developing her gifts and her strengths. It's a great ride!
