Publisher's Summary

There's a body beneath the skip bins. Fae on the forklift. A vampire in the manager's office. And there's definitely something skeevy going on in the locker rooms. 

Hi. I'm Pet. Well, not exactly Pet. I am a pet. 

I was meant to stay out of it, but somebody's gotta do something when humans are being killed by Behindkind creatures. 

Lucky for me, my owners are just as dangerous and inhuman as the bad guys...maybe more.

Excellent! Loved ir!

I've already read all the books, and I really love the series! The characters are amazing, and I love the banter between them. The audiobook Is amazing as well, which surprised me, since I don't usually like audiobooks in general. I totally recommend it.

Do yourself a favor...

Read this series. But read it in order, otherwise you might get lost and that would truly be a shame. W.R. Gingell is a fabulous and amazing author, and Zehra Jane Navqi is pitch-perfect as narrator. My only complaint is to Audible.... how about gracing us with Gingell’s Two Monarchy series? And W.R....... please write faster!!!

Flamin heck this book is awesome

What an adventure you go on with Pet as she and her three psychos investigate who is behind the body she found at the grocery store. From the first chapter to the end you are kept entertained. Delightful characters, funny comments and intriguing mystery. The narrator made the story even better as she pulled you in. So good!

thoroughly enjoyed

I love listening to audiobooks that I have previously read because I really feel like I get a whole new take on the book. It is always fun to hear how a narrator interprets the characters and whether it lines up with your own inner voice. I really enjoyed this narrator and beyond a slight issue differentiating between the male characters, I really think she knocked it out of the park. I will be listening to the rest of the series.

Brilliant

First, the book is second in the series, and you really should read/listen to the first book too, out there's too much you'll have missed. Second, the narrator is wonderful. I could listen to her read the phone book. She is absolutely the perfect voice for Pet, and her reading added life to all the other characters. Third, the author's world building is fantastic. It's a natural unfolding conveyed through events and brief dialogue. No long explanations, yet everything we need to know, when we need to know it. The characters of her "three psychos" as she (affectionately) calls the vampire and two fae with whom she lives, continue to develop, as does Pet herself. This is a rather gripping series in which you become more and more attached to Pet and her three psychos as time progresses. It's also one of the best voice performances out there.

More Pet, more Psychos!

I have all of the City Between books on Kindle, but I also like to have my favorite Kindle books on Audible so I can knit and "read" at the same time. There was no question I would order both City Between books available on Audible and I'm waiting for Book 3 on Audible and Book 4 on Kindle and Audible. The books are amazing, needless to say, and I appreciate that Ms. Gingell has found a fresh twist for a young adult paranormal series--so many of the current paranormal books out there seem a little cookie cutter to me. I await each new book eagerly and recommend them highly. Ms. Naqvi also does a great job narrating and is an excellent reader (surprisingly, not all narrators are). And although I had pictured Zero having more of an accent-less voice like Athelas since he's fae, I enjoyed him having an Australian accent like Pet and the human characters. In my opinion, she does full justice to the books with her narration.

Cant wait for more!

loved the first and immediately devoured the second. sad I have to wait for the next book. ends on another cliffhanger. it's a refreshing supernatural story though. not of that annoying teen angst and romance. i absolutely enjoyed listening to it, the narrator has good voices for everyone. and her accent is pleasant. the story really drew me in. and the action moved along at a good but brisk pace. The only thing id have to advise a listener is you need a good imagination to fill in the somewhat vague descriptions of things. but other than that I highly recommended this series. I had to keep going so I got all the books in the kindle version too. when the 3rd and hopefully 4th come to audible, I'm definitely getting them. the story plays out like a movie and if this ever gets properly to the screens I will be the first one there. :)

A joy to read/listen to

Another superb PG book. Witty and engrossing, with superb narration. Pet is fully embracing her roll as a pet to the two fae and a vampire she lives with, whom she happily calls either her owners or her three psychos. She compares her role to that of a cat and she will obey if, and who, she wants to. Pet cooperates, partly to keep herself from notice of the foster care system and achieve her end goal (the deed to her parents’ house), but also out of an unacknowledged loneliness and boundless curiosity of the Between. These books are thoroughly entertaining. Very Australian, laugh out loud funny, with no swearing or sex, just a little violence.
