If you can pass narrators patronizing, singing voice (suitable for younger children), story is quite captivating.
This is one of those where I don't the writing is technically as good as I'd like. It's a little formulaic, the characters are drawn as if the writer wasn't too deeply involved with them. Having said that, I keep listening to it and I was interested in the romance.
Good story, well narrated. Writing was not great, but it was good. I'm going to get the second book in the series.
This story has it all - action, emotion, great characters, a story line with integrity. It's the narrator who makes it hard to listen too. She is too slow and sounds about 40 years older than the character. I swear you can hear her dentures slip as she reads. Too bad, because the story is really fun.
Ten minutes into this book, it felt like a poorly written knockoff of a much better series. The urban fantasy genre does feed off itself, but this went too far for me. If the concept is not quite original, I would at least like to enjoy the journey.
The writing felt like a juvenile first attempt, and I was shocked to learn that Briggs has been publishing her work since 1993. Save the credit; there are better series out there.
