You'd think that being chief seer for the supernatural world would come with a few perks. But as Cassie Palmer has learned, being Pythia doesn't mean that you don't have to do things the hard way. That's why she finds herself on a rescue mission skipping through time - even though she doesn't entirely understand her dimension-bending new power.

Any of the old narrators would be better than this

I love these books. And truthfully, I wasn't thrilled with the first change in narrator. Or the next change, or the next. But if you're going to keep springing new narrators on us, would you at least insist that they listen to the previous books and learn how to pronounce things correctly? It's disappointing and distracting enough that I'm giving up on listening to these books, which were once among my favorites. Such a shame.

Every other weekend, Stella buys a ticket on the next flight out of town and leaves her life behind. Home is a place with too many memories, and departure is the sweetest possible distraction.

As soon as she arrives at her destination, Stella visits the airport bar. She orders a drink and waits for the right guy to come along. A bored businessman, a backpacker, a baggage handler just off shift. If he's into a hot, no-strings hookup, he's perfect. Each time is a thrilling escape from reality that gives the term layover a whole new meaning.

What disappointed you about Flying?

Everything. I honestly didn't even care what happened to a single character by the 4th or 5th chapter.

Has Flying turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I usually love them. Including Megan Hart's other books.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance wasn't bad, but I kind of hated the actual characters.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not so much. Even the ending was a let-down.

Any additional comments?

Save your credit.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Maybe an angst-ridden pre-teen would find all the drama and whining more acceptable.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Anything else.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Elizabeth Evans?

Although all the characters constantly sounded arrogant and bratty, I don't think the narrator can be held solely responsible; the author's writing is just as much to blame.

What character would you cut from Throne of Glass?

All of them! The "world's best assassin" "wrings her hands in worry" and lets people sneak up on her on a regular basis. She spent her career carefully hiding her identity, yet now constantly whines that no one respects her or takes her seriously because they don't know who she is. The "spoiled prince" is an arrogant womanizing jerk, who refuses to marry because every woman he's ever met is "mentally inferior". Listening to them is like listening to a bunch of immature 12-year-old spoiled rotten brats.

Any additional comments?

Save the credit!!
