Meet FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong. She's cursed. He's damned. Together, they make one hell of a team. Emma Monroe is a Siren, cursed by the gods and bound to earth to atone for an ancient failure. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now that she works missing persons cases for the FBI, it could be just a rescue away. Unless her new partner leads her astray.

What disappointed you about Cursed?

The premise is good, but the plot seems a little forced in places and super transparent in others. I can tell a lot of research went into the greek aspect.

Would you ever listen to anything by S. J. Harper again?

I didn't dislike the book, just wasn't captivated by it.

What three words best describe Johanna Parker’s voice?

I usually love her narration, but in this case she has missed the mark with the characters who supposedly grew up on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. No one who hails from here sounds like the stereotypical southern hick drawl she is portraying them as, and for me that kept taking me out of the story.

Any additional comments?

If I knew the book had characters from my hometown I would have read the book instead of listened.

Eddie Drood is not happy about being the new head of the family, especially now that everyone believes either he or his girlfriend, Molly, was responsible for the former matriarch’s death. Since Eddie knows he didn’t do it, he doesn’t like where this is going

Would you consider the audio edition of From Hell with Love to be better than the print version?

I love the print version, but this narrator is absolutely wonderful. The depth he brings to the characters is amazing, not to mention the perfect timing for Simon R. Green's humour.

What did you like best about this story?

Eddie and Molly's interactions just keep getting better.

Which character – as performed by Gideon Emery – was your favorite?

I had a geeky girl crush on Eddie Drood before, but now I am totally in love.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed at a good amount of the book, sat on the edge of my seat for all the action, and the ending distressed me so much I could hardly wait for the next book!

Any additional comments?

I am a long time fan of Simon R. Green, and I love how he takes each series he writes and intertwines them.
