Publisher's Summary

Tisiphone loves spending her days playing poker in the underworld, far away from mortals and all the trouble they cause - and all the terrible mistakes they make. Unfortunately for this goddess, her sister Alecto has vanished in Las Vegas - and the gods of Olympus believe only Tisi can find her and bring her back. To make matters worse, they force her to partner up with a mortal: recently deceased FBI agent Archer Mays. With all these challenges, how can a Fury keep her temper?

On their quest to track down the missing goddess, Tisi and Archer battle danger, demons, and even their simmering attraction to one another - until a sinister plot unfolds that could devastate humans and gods alike. Now, Tisiphone must set everything right within a few days, or find herself trapped in the mortal world she despises…forever.

From the author of the enchanting Stacy Justice series comes the first book in her brand-new Secret Goddess series: a book that proves hell hath no Fury, because she’s in Las Vegas.

    "Awesome New Series!"

    Having read all the Stacy Justice books, by Barbra Annino, I couldn't wait to read the first book in her new series. I thoroughly enjoyed Barbra's story - especially narrated by Christina Traister! I've never heard a book narrated by Christina before and she really brought the characters to life! I look forward to the next in this series and hope they will be able to get the same narrator.

    "good except for one thing"

    not a bad story but the one thing that distracted me about the whole story was the narrator's pronunciation of Hecate. Every time she said Heck-it instead of Hek-a-tay it took me away from the story and its all I can really remember about the book now.

    Story
    "Brilliant Fun Book"

    This book is a real gem. I love paranormal romance. This is about the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Myth. The Author did a brilliant job with the world building of this story. It's a fun and refreshing story with action and mystery. Though this is a series there is no cliff hanger and there's a HEA. I hate being left on the edge waiting many months for the next book in a series to come out when there's a cliff hanger. It can be a real turn off when the whole series isn't finished yet. But this is not the case here. A very satisfying ending. The narrator Christina Traister is very talented she does a wonderful job at both the male and female voices, she's a talented narrator. Actually she's up there with my favorite narator Tavia Gillbert. And for a audiobook the narrator is as important as the Author, without a good narrator even the best written book will bomb on audio. This is a great listen worthy of a credit or whispersinc it. You won't be disappointed.

    I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.

    Story
    "Sin City meet Fury Tisi"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sin City Goddess to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What didn't I like? This story is quite good. Sending a poker playing Fury to sin city in an attempt to find her missing sister, what's not to like? Throw in a newly deceased FBI agent as a "liaison" to keep Tisi from making to much of a mess and you have a great premise for a story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the dog wouldn't let agent in the room. (You'll know when you read it) ;-)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually, yes. I had a few laughs here and there. I really like Barbra Annino's writing style, so I got into the book and lost track of time.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next book

    I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.

    Story
    "Good to make you fall asleep"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The characters were 2 dimensional We knew they were gods, goddess, demi-gods, etc., and they all had names. Other than this there wasn't any substance. I didn't believe the heroin was tough, smart, or a fury. She sounded more like a self centered rich bitch from Beverly hills. "I'm hot, sexy, I can fly, I think I'm better than everyone else and I can play Texas Holdem". "Oh look at my eyes flame.", are we really going to be scared or intimidated by this? Not at all, especially if all the male characters are looking at her breasts. Only saving grace I found was in the playful hell hound and the setting of Las Vegas.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something really worth my monthly credit, like a Steven King novel, the newest Evonovich novel or a recommended new series, such as March Violets by Phillip Kerr. I have over 300 books on my wish list, so there has to be something in there worth my credit. I have a few biographies on my wish list and I'd wager those people have much more depth than those in this book.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Christina Traister did a better job than the author did. Her pace, tone and individual character voice were fair. Traister didn't have much to draw from the novel, so I really can't suggest what she could have done to improve her performance.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Best redeeming qualities for me was that it helped me with my insomnia, and it was relatively short. I kept listening in hope it would get better. It was also my first paranormal novel involving gods and other mythological creatures. I won't hold this review as to not read another from another author.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe Barbra Traister,s sequel of this book, will do better than her first.
