    "Not bad story, narrator bit annoying"

    If you can pass narrators patronizing, singing voice (suitable for younger children), story is quite captivating.

    "Reasonably entertaining"

    Seemed a little like it was following a formula. I thought Masques was more creative.

    "like the series"

    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.

    "Worth a listen"

    Good story, well narrated. Writing was not great, but it was good. I'm going to get the second book in the series.

    "Great story - needs better narration"

    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.

    "Disappointing"

    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.

    "Not bad, not great"

    I'm a fan of the series, but I feel the narrator is somehow too mature sounding for this series.
