Visit the endangered dragon preserve! Please, no slaying.

Buy some knickknacks from The Fates! They might come in handy later.
On a road trip across an enchanted America, Helen and Troy will discover all this and more. If the curse placed upon them by an ancient god doesn't kill them or the pack of reluctant orc assassins don't catch up to them, Helen and Troy might reach the end their journey in one piece, where they might just end up destroying the world. Or at least a state or two.
A minotaur girl, an all-American boy, a three-legged dog, and a classic car are on the road to adventure, where every exit leads to adventure. Whether they like it or not.

Maybe it's just me, but this one just didn't grab me on any level. I was mostly just bored, bored, bored. Poorly plotted, poorly written, poorly read. Perhaps if the author had grabbed me more effectively at the beginning I might have gotten into it and stuck it out. After all, you'd think a story about a minotaur in a burger joint would be "compelling."
Unfortunately, in the case of this one, the burger joint" aspect won out and, well, is there anything more predictable, flavorless and boring than a fast-food restaurant? This is a "fast-food book." I'm giving this one back to Audible.
In the middle. I've definitely listened to better, but there are many books out that there are worse.
The challenges were insteresting. I loved that they had dinner with one opponent, pre-battle, and that mystery house had such a mystery. The least interesting parts were everything related to Helen. She had the random droll comment but most of her story line was a never-ending self-awareness conversation about her own mythological-ness. It wasn't amusing or interesting...just long. And repetitive.
Dinner with the cyclops.
For me it was the predictability of the story and the appallingly forced romance. To me there is nothing worse than a fake romance.
Sure, her voice neither detracted nor enhanced the story
