He brings these books, which are above and beyond already, to even more magnificent life! I have enjoyed his performances of all of the characters during the full series.

Of my seat!!! Mila is getting more than she bargained for in this installment of wwos. No one is who she thought they were. Creatures exist that she didn't expect to be alive. She is stronger than she expected.

Let me just preface this by saying that I LOVE the Samantha Moon stories. I've read them all. I was excited to see that this book was on audible as I love listening while I commute and I had already bought this book to read on kindle. The first 5 minutes of the audible I thought maybe the narrator would loosen up further into the book. Nope. It's robotic. Sounds like an automated voice and it's terrible. I wish I could get my money back that it's so bad. I couldn't listen any longer because it was ruining it for me.

I truly enjoyed reading this book so I just knew the audible would be great. I was terribly disappointed. It's obvious the man had not read the book and knew nothing about the characters. He gave Samantha Moon a Transylvania accent. She is from Southern California! When an audible causes me to rage at my sound system then it's no longer an enjoyable experience.

I received this book as a gift and after listening to the narration I would gladly buy the follow up book in the series. The writing draws you into the mysteries that November and her friend Kale just can't seem to pass up. The star here is the narration. After recently listening to a few hours of bad narration of a book I really enjoyed reading, I have a new appreciation for an amazing narrator.
