I'm afraid it just didn't catch me in it's spell !
Firstly, I hadn't know that this is actually book 2 of the Portal trilogy - book 1 is Mark of the Witch, this is book 2 followed by Blood of the Sorce..Show More »ress (not yet released).
I usually like M.S.'s work but I found this book to be so frustrating, it's one of those listens that'll have you pulling your hair out over whilst screaming "can you really be sooo stupid!" - the female character Lena was always thinking "oh I'm sure I saw it.... but I must have just been dreaming it/hallucinating it/imagining it" over and over again. It started off well - woman (whose also a witch) falls in love/accidentally gets pregnant/doesn't want to share news with boyfriend/runs out on him/meets him again 7 months later after a tragedy/he moves in wanting to bond...... then it goes downhill from there.
The narration didn't help any and I felt like Lena sounded and acted very young, naive and gullible and this could easily be a YA book - no real romance and definitely no sex. It didn't have the feel of an Adult book and it's made me very unsure of any of Ms Shayne's other books.
Worth a credit? In my opinion no, nor the $ if you wanted to buy it and I won't be going back to listen to book 1 nor will I eagerly anticipate book 3's release - so that shows you just how uninterested I am.
