Ivy Wilde, the laziest witch in the West, is still entangled with the Hallowed Order of Magical Enlightenment. That's not a bad thing, however, because it gives her plenty of excuses to spend more time with sapphire-eyed Raphael Winter, her supposed nemesis. And when he comes knocking because he needs her to spy on the latest series of Enchantment, she jumps at the chance. Hanging around a film set can't be hard - or dangerous - right?

The flu pandemic of 1918 took millions of souls within a few short weeks. Except it wasn't flu, and death gave them back. Seventeen-year-old Ella copes the best she can by caring for her war-injured father, scrubbing the floors, and slaying the undead that attack the locals. Like rats, these vermin spread pestilence with every bite. Ella's world collides with another when she nearly decapitates a handsome stranger - one who is very much alive.

Evil stepmother, wicked stepsisters, handsome Duke, beautiful blond daughter/servant/slayer of the undead?!? Set around the time of WW1 the writer did a great job of incorporating the PTSD and Shell Shock of the men that came home after The Great War.
No frail sweet servant girl is THIS Cinderella (Eleanor = Ella) :)

I loved the full cast. I always said there should be audio with at least a male/ female combination. nothing is more distracting than a man using high falsetto tone for women and a female sounding like the big bad wolf for ever male character. done can pull off the duel tones but not everyone.
Full cast was wonderful!

I love this book and the reader was perfect! She read the book with the most perfect accents and inflections of the 1995 movie with Colin Firth. I read this book and watch the movie at least once a year, now I have to add THIS audible version. I hope she reads more Jane Austen books!

I was skeptical on the reader, mainly because Molly's voice was so irritating. Molly herself can be irritating but with a huge and genuine heart so after awhile I grew to like it, and was relieved to hear it a few times! I am now going to order the next books and follow this series to the end, and hope there never will be one. lol.
