Something dark and evil has awakened....

Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City - and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It's 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries her uncle will discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho is hiding a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened....

This audiobook includes an introduction read by Libba Bray.

    "Wonderfully intertaining"

    This is a great listen, kept me on the treadmill just to hear more of the story. This book took me to another place and time, characters were .....well fun. January LaVoy is the best reader I have heard, I could see the different characters just with her tone. Loved the whole enchilada.

    "Hooray for Libba Bray"

    Libba Bray - where does this woman's imagination come from? From mad cows to beauty queens to the occult? The occult-based murders in this story almost made me stop the book, but maybe I am more easily scared by most. What kept me going were two things: 1) main character Evie O'Neill is the ultimate 1920's gal (way fun) and an amateur detective (love mysteries) and 2) narrator January LaVoy pulls you in with a wide array of character voices. The humor also had a little to do with reading this because while Libba Bray will probably tell you she is funny, I admit that she is right. Enjoy this creepy, humorous, historically cool story, but beware, while there is a very satisfying ending, this book is the first of a series/collection.... and now I have to wait.

    Story
    "Ok tween book."

    Lots of bad cliches and slow moving through much of it. The ending is an obvious set up for a sequel.

    Heroes x X-Men set in 1920's NYC, without the charm or great back stories.

    Entertaining, but I would not recommend it to anyone over 13.

    Story
    "VERY ENTERTAINING!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Diviners the most enjoyable?

    The way it was narrated by January LaVoy and how she did a great job with each characters voice


    What other book might you compare The Diviners to and why?

    Not sure its kind of like a mashup of a couple of different books


    What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    her voice is very easy to get used to


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

    yes but everyone needs sleep ;D


    Any additional comments?

    don't think just buy

    "Great til the end..."

    As with many Libba Bray books,the ending got away from her. That being said, the beginning is always good enough that I am willingly, knowingly, prepared for a confused finish.

    "This book is the cat's pajamas!"
    Where does The Diviners rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my first audio book. I am very impressed with January LaVoy's voice skills and characterizations. I am a huge fan of the Roaring 20s era as well as stories about ghostly/occultish things. The characters and plot are very well-rounded and interesting. I highly reccomend The Diviners!


    What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

    She is very skilled at creating different voices for all of the characters and expressing their emotions beyond the written word.


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

    Yes, but I also don't want it to be over!
