The hilarious ravings of Taniya Sexton, god of planet fruitcake and undercover intergalactic superagent.
Taniya Sexton is an ordinary downtrodden girl with authority issues. Having the working day from hades, she is sucked from our reality and into the fifth dimension when summoned to wage a war. Instantly she's elevated to god status and is worshipped as the almighty god Amrak.
Playing god by ear is challenging enough, but without warning she's dumped into the region of her nemesis, the god Adnachiel. Faced with drooling foamers and alien creatures, scrambling to distill hostility, she falls chin first for the gorgeous man, seduces and overthrows her enemy, and, on returning home when her mission is over, finds herself suddenly in the employ of the Bureau of Her Majesty the Queen, as a secret universal spy.
Hold on to your sides, as this is hilariously sidesplitting.

Funny to hilarious mind ramblings of a London shopgirl with a mind of her own and a solid opinion of herself as she is abducted and hailed as a god by the people of this fifth dimension planer. The publisher's summary will give you some clues without spoilers. Enjoy this gigglefest!
Elan gives a fantastic performance that no book could match.

I've never read anything from Poppet before, but from what I've heard this is not her usual genre. Still, I enjoyed the story and the characters. I was a bit shocked by how youthfully British the whole story felt, but it really works in the first person perspective of Taniya. While I didn't laugh-out-loud, I did smile at a few scenes and sentences. I just want to point out that this is not the same type of humour that you might find in a Pratchett or Adams book. It is a much more modern type of fast speaking, slang-slinging humour.
Elan O'Connor did an excellent job capturing the essence of Taniya. She embraces the speed and wit of the character, throwing out slang with confidence. Luckily, I'm used to hearing heavy British accents or I might have had some difficulty keeping up.

Norwegian in a English world!
Soul Cypher: Planet Fruitcake by Poppet is fun! Sarcastic and fun! Seriously folks, looking for something different? This is it! 8 hrs and 25 mins of strange, fun, and just so weird! The Soul Cypher is a great story left me wanting more! Planet Fruitcake is that fun i will give it 5 of 5 stars!
Elan O'Connor is good as well! She is a bit dry in her english performance! i like her, i do but i find her a bit "dry" or maybe more like she is reading it a bit slow? i enjoy herm don't get me wrong, but i want it a bit less dry!

I wanted to like this story, but I found the story lacking, just more of an immature young female who seemed to just bash or belittle the male race the entire time. I tried for hours to figure what was going on, but I just kept hearing nonsense.
No offense to this book, as most other reviews were very positive, I just don't get it. Maybe somethings wrong with me, and not this title...
She was a very good narrator, despite me not enjoying the story.

Rabid Listener/Reader and Shopper!
Narration - Elan O'Connor - Really terrific narration! I'm not sure this book would have been as funny to me if I'd just read it vs. listening to it because her comedic timing was exceptional (and mine is not).
This is kind of a snarky book - or I guess our Heroine Taniya Sexton is pretty snarky. It's fast paced and filled with the (yes, I'm saying it again) snarky internal ramblings of Taniya as she is swept from her crappy job into an alien world and elevated to a god.
The story contains a little romance, a bit of mystery, some good ole sci-fi bits with magical powers of thought. This was really an enjoyable listen and I'd recommend to anyone that likes sci-fi and humor!

This Is an outrageous, sarcastic, irreverent, earthy and mostly very funny lark on a Universal scale, and a treat of a book. It is almost, but not quite, essential that you have at least a good acquaintance with British slang, otherwise you will find yourself as confused as some of the resident aliens, and yes, sometimes the humor goes a bit flat or gets a bit stale, but never for long, and not often.
Along the way, the author slips in some educational goodies, too, particularly concerning physics and a few other sciences (and explains them logically, simply and understandably, even for this English literature major), and there is a healthy dose of political satire, and more than a few thoughtful comments on society, the role of Government, duty, and responsibility. But these are nicely tucked in, and never interfere with the grand fun that this book is. The world building is excellent, and not quite as zany as it appears at first glance, and the character building, especially for the main characters is very well done. Although the main character (who narrates the story) is entirely endearing, I did find myself giving thanks to all gods (or Galactic agents) that may be that she is not *my* daughter! Raising her would be exhausting, to put it mildly. But she works, and even though few of us have actually *met* people quite like her, more people like her *should* exist.
The writing is original, unique, and the author maintains her voice throughout the book, and considering that voice, she performed quite a feat. I say *she*, but the name Poppet could be female, male, or indicate plural authorship …all part and parcel of the wacky charm of this book.
In addition to the very extensive use of current British slang, the main character’s fascination with words and their usage, both historic and modern, is yet another treat, and adds more depth to a book that seems like a bit of mind fluff, but isn’t, quite. I am glad, though, that this isn’t an especially long book, since having to read 20 hours or so of it might lead to mental and physical collapse from sheer exhaustion and overload.
The narrator was beyond perfect for this book. She’s British (essential for this one), but she has the kind of light voice and flippant style that make the characters come to life, and her phrasing, diction and speed are handled with consummate professionalism. I have to give both book and narrator 5 stars, and I *want* one of those Quality Street boxes of candy! They sound absolutely wonderful!

"Bridget Jones meets The Iron Druid." Our protagonist, a Bridget-like British singleton with a sassy attitude, a colorful slang-filled vocabulary, and an abbreviated, self-centered tendency to talk to herself works as a shopgirl. Unexpectedly, she is transported through the fitting room into a world where she is worshipped as a god(dess). She is sent to do battle with another god, but has to use her wits and wiles to figure out who can she can trust in this world and how to stay alive. This book is full of silliness an humor, with a little mystery and romance. It's light, frothy, fun with a dash of romance. I personally found it a little too light on substance. The romance had very little tension, and the peril never seemed dire enough either. This is definitely chick lit with a mythological twist.
The narration by Elan O'Connor was well-fitted to the book and enjoyable to listen to, even if tour heroine was rather exasperating.
