    "Entertaining"

    I would have given this book five stars but I do think 2 credits is to much. I wasn't happy when I saw this go on sale for 5 dollars. Though good for those whose timing was better.

    The narration was good; though it took me a short bit to get into it. (I also think she gets better as the book and series progresses.

    The story was good and moved along. Sometimes the motivations of the characters was surprising, but not so much so it took away from the story. There were interesting things that went on but the focus was Harper the main character.
    I always liked x-files except that sometimes it went to far with the creepy stuff. This story had just the right balance. All in all for me this was a good choice even having to use (2) credits.

    "Interesting story, annoying narrator"

    Although I enjoyed the world Richardson built this story in, I did wonder at the motivations behind many of the characters in the story. I kept wondering why all of the secondary characters continued to help the main character except to move the plot along. She gave them no reason to continue to help her. The world-building and the mystery were interesting though.

    The narrator I found overly melodramatic and the voices she used for the males drove me to distraction in their silliness.

    This may be one of those books that is better read than listened to.

    "Great story-worth two credits"

    This is my first book by this author and it grabbed me from the beginning. I will be buying the other books in the series.

    "Series starts out decent but fails after book 5"

    I liked the first few books. Other then the dialog related to mysterious messages and cryptic comments of antagonist i like the series very much. That is, at first. The early books were a little slow but i thought, hey most good novels are like that and then i looked over at the good ratings so i told myself i was being too harsh. Give it a chance. Book 2 and 3 were great so i guess i was being too critical. The problem is the progression of the storyline. Books 4 and 5 really expanded the supernatural content. Our main character goes from a private investigator with a near death experience to a near godly (book 5) kick a$$ heroine we all want. I liked the direction of the series so much so that i bought book 6 and 7 while i was still listening to 5. So you might be asking yourself why i rated the series so low, It's because at the end of book 5 our girl gets a ability/power reset. The girl goes from awsome to nothing. At first i thought this was just a way to relax some of the hype, ya know to steer the books back to their roots but you can't go from saving the world with super powers in one book to a character that has to have a ferrit save her in the next. She is pathetic. After skimming the rest of book 6 and book 7 i have decided to stop listening to the series.

    My advice... If you did not absolutly love the first book, don't bother listening to the rest.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    "A Very Good Listen"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Harper is a PI, who dies and is resucitated (sp.) with a special gift that she is wary of. Ultimately the slow process of acceptance that she is different begins, these new differences thrust her into the world of the supernatural. I was so happy to see that vampires were not made into romantic creatures in this book.
    I noticed that many have criticized the reading of the the book by Mia Barron. I'm sorry but I do not agree. She did a very good job with all of the different voices. The only whiney male voice was Cameron, but he had a lot to whine about. She had a great range of voice, and her inflection was good, and she knew when to speed up her reading to express excitement.

    Now about Quinten.....who wants to bet that he is a supernatural as well? A werewolf perhaps?

    Story
    "narrator ??"

    The story was good, but could have been better if it didn't sound like the narrator was reading a book. She didn't show much emotion and just blandly read the page. It pretty much ruined the book for me. I've listened to snipets of her reading other audiobooks and some sound ok and others are just like this one. I'm very disappointed.

    "Hard listen"

    This book may not be as bad as I think but it was so hard to listen to the narration. The narrator had one voice that sounded okay, the rest where just plain bad. I bought two of these and regret the purchase.

    "Mediocre"

    Both the writing and the audio were mediocre. Not a book I recommend. I won't buy another by this writer.

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    Story
    "maybe with a bit more descriptive variety..."

    This series was on sale. I recognized this title as one that I've been wanting to read for awhile, so I picked up the first book thinking that, if I liked it, I would buy the rest of the series while it was on sale.

    I guess the fact that I did not buy any more books in the series answers the question as to whether or not I liked the book.

    The story starts out well - bit of mystery as to what's going on, bit of mystery that Harper has to solve, so far so good. Then we learn what the Grey is, but we, the readers, are the only ones who listen - Harper spends the entire book denying what she is. This denial makes her sick and queasy (and we hear about this about, say, 37 times in the book) but she doesn't take the "expert's" advice and stop fighting it. No, she spends the ENTIRE book complaining how beat up and dragged out and tired and sick she is. Please, Harper, take a pill. Or, better yet, accept the fact that you're a Greywalker.

    But even when she looks into/uses the Grey (still denying it, but anyway)... we're subjected to the same descriptions of the "roiling blackness" and the red edging and the crimson lines and the wavering edges about 242 times.

    I like my heroines to have more backbone and less whininess and my authors to have more variety in their descriptions. I'm not saying it's a bad story, it's just not tightly enough written that I'd choose to read more in the series given that there's a whole slew of urban fantasy books out there. Oh, the narration was very good, there is no sex in it, and I don't think there was any swearing.

    Story
    "Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Kat Richardson and/or Mia Barron?

    I would try another book by Kat Richardson, however I do not like listening to Mia Barron read the book. Her inflexion is terrible and I feel like a junior high school student is attempting to act out the story with difficulty. I have listed to many audio books with some truly talented readers. Mia Barron is far from that. I will end the series on the first book because I have no desire to listen to her again.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mia Barron?

    Honestly, anyone with more experience. Her performance was mediocore at best.
