I was looking for a new story to listen to while driving back and forth to my in-laws about 3 hours away and stumbled on the fact that Jennifer Ashley..Show More » (Highland Pleasures series) was writing alternative fiction under the Allyson James name. The fact that there were already 3 titles in the series with a 4th upcoming was an added bonus.
This story moves right along right from the start and we meet most of the major characters in the first two chapters. Hillary Huber does a great job of differentiating the characters, and I really like what she does with them. Nash is a little strident, but the rest are just spot on. She really gets Maya's "up yours" attitude and conveys it with every word.
In my opinion, the characters are well drawn and believable. They definitely make me want to rush to the Crossroads Motel and buy them a drink!
My favorite scene in the book involves Janet, Maya and a bottle of tequila. You'll laugh, bite your nails and drive right past your exit just so you can keep on listening. Can't wait to hear the rest of the series. Thanks, Audible!
After reading this second book of the series there is improvement and the overall feel of the story and characters for me, as the first one left me lu..Show More »kewarm and only mildly interested in continuing with the series in general.
Having chosen to read on I found a better understanding of Janet, she is tough, smart and compassionate. A well rounded character is forming and her relationships with the other characters are coming to life and feel more sincere. I look forward to reading the rest of the series now.
The daughter of an underworld goddess she is being trailed and monitored by gods, powerful dragons and others who are watching to see if she will realize the strength of her own power and if she will be able to handle it wisely or destroy the world.
