Phipps keeps this series light and entertaining, however, the main character is facing some deep interpersonal dilemmas. Story is really good, well thought out for a blatant Mortal Kombat ripoff. Toasty!

Can't really say whether this was really good or not, but that's mainly due to this book not being in my wheel house. I listened, but could not get into it.

Super nerdy outcast is stalked by the most popular guy in school. She hates him, but he suckers her into a sleep walking macabre world. The main protagonist is so bitter and .......well, boring, it's a hard listen. Narration is good, but couldn't save this one.

Kassidy Spence thought she was just making a typical Friday night commute home. Turns out she was about to dance with the devil. Her unwanted ability to sense demons once tore her world apart and she refuses to let it happen again. But a hot new self-help book changes everything. Some who read it leave on a mysterious journey only to turn up dead; even stranger, they died smiling. Kass fears the author has sinister intentions, and even worse, a demonic alliance.

Loved the narration, thought Gwen Cross was a blast to hear. The story, however, was just not fast enough. Was slow and not especially interesting main character. The overall book was not bad.....but that's all I can say.

Faced with writing college papers, prepping for tests, and teaching testy witches, Declan O'Carroll has enough on his plate. Not to mention the magical withdrawal of leaving his very own magical kingdom behind on Fairie. But when he and his friends are attacked from creatures out of folklore and fable, it seems the Queens of Summer and Winter aren't done with him yet.

A black comedy that follows the misadventures of a reluctant 18th-century hero as he makes his way through the centuries. A curse has rendered him no more than three inches tall, and when you've been dragged into a six-thousand-year-old faery war, that's not a good size to be.

Death was celebrated when the reapers and humans coexisted. Back when the monsters from around The End stayed in their small pocket of existence, only coming out in nightmares and darkness. Ganedyn was paradise and shared its life with its mortal counterpart. Reapers rewarded those at the end of their time on Earth by leading them through the tree in the in-between to an eternity of color, life, and freedom. In return, they would bring tokens back from Ganedyn. Acorns capable of sprouting into an entire forest and flowers capable of curing disease. Everything was in balance.

Not really sure what this was supposed to be. At times there were interesting parts and some semblance of a good story, but then it would go sideways. Narration was mediocre at best.
