Nicole Cassidy is a witch descended from the Greek gods...but she doesn't know it until she moves to a new town and discovers a dangerous world of magic and monsters that she never knew existed. When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in 3,000 years, Nicole and four others - including mysterious bad-boy Blake - are gifted with elemental powers. But the comet has another effect - it opens the portal to another dimension that has imprisoned the Titans for centuries.

I can’t even explain how seriously frustrating this book was. Every character was a whiny child and did the dumbest crap imaginable. I was so excited the listen to this book but it was such a disappointment. All the small unimportant conversations and story plots that the book didn’t need to convey the story were a complete and utter pain in the ass. The saving grace was how the reader added the emotional drama to each character. The only problem was they complain and whined soooooooooooooooooo much the acting became annoying. Please skip this series unless your like 12 and live this type of childish life.

This book has given me complete and utter life! I laughed, cried, smile, got angry, and so much more. The story gave me a vision of a fantasy world my soul has been craving. Thank you Toni Adeyemi for bring this story to the world. I can’t wait for the next journey in this series, I will make sure to buckle myself in this time!

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: it's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

Tiffany Haddish has an amazing story of survival and strength. I was so happy to listen to her tell it in her own words. Very inspirational for those that have lived a hard life and need help finding hope with there seem to only be hardship and pain. Great audio book for my collection!
