The story takes place in Harborsmouth, where all types of interesting and fun beings dwell. Some aren't so fun such as the pixies. I loved what she said about the pixies. Her friend Jinx is cool too.
It's Christmastime and it's her first Christmas with a boyfriend who's a Kelpie King who was needed elsewhere and had to cancel their date for the tree lighting ceremony. The Kelpie and Selkie tribes were fighting over fishing rights and he had to go and keep the peace and prevent a Fae war.
Meanwhile Ivy had agreed to take Forneas' case and Jinx also had her overbooked on other cases. The Fae needed her help and this kept her hopping 24/7 with emergency cases.
This was an amazingly good audiobook. E.J. STEVENS did a terrific job writing this. I loved the duel narration with Ivy and Ceff. With him being a water spirit, it was neat to hear when his voice came in. I'm looking forward to listening to more in this series. This one is up there amongst my favorite fantasy audiobooks if not my new favorite.
Melanie A. Mason and David Wilson Brown did an exceptional job narrating this audiobook. I loved their characters. They made this a really nice audio experience. I would definitely recommend checking this one out.

Birthright does provide enough information, back details, and is such an intriguing story, with a plot that really drew me in. I didn't feel lost, but do think the plot would have been much richer if read in order.
This was certainly a fast paced story, full suspense, action, some romance and great character development. I really liked Ivy!
Melanie and Anthony provided an excellent performance which enhanced the overall audiobook experience! They really brought the characters to life.
Overall, this was a fantastic, and I'm going to have to go back, and listen to the prior stories!
