Twisty!

I received a copy of this audio short story from the author – my thanks. I really enjoyed the story, really enjoyed the world-building that went into it. I also loved what I thought was the "gimmick", if you will, in which the entire story was basically a verbatim transcript of a psychology session police detective Dierdre Morton) Dee is required by policy to undergo following the loss of her partner. It was so well done, for the most part – economically told, with a fine balance between exposition and world-building. My only quibble was that there were a few times I was pushed away from the story, figuratively speaking, because the language was definitely that of a short story and not that of someone telling a story out loud to another person. Even I don't speak like that, and I'm weird. (Not Wyrd, though.)

The only other place where the concept fell down a bit was toward the end of the ninety minute story, when Dr. Anne Pershing mentions that over three hours have gone by. My brain hiccupped for a second, because it sure seemed like real time.

But these are quibbles. Gwendolyn Druyor's writing is lovely, funny in unexpected places and moving in other unexpected places, and always smart. And I love the idea for the series: people with unusual powers or abilities "passing" as ordinary citizens, stepping up and banding together to save the world. It's been done before, sure, but that's because it's so much fun when it's done well. As it is here.

And I love the mystery of what really happened to Kyle. And the twist in the tale… so well done. So very well done.

And I love the author's narration. I'm a fan.

I received a copy of this story in audio format directly from the author – thank you!

Amazing twist and turns

This book was well written and developed from the storyline to the characters. Dee puts a new spin on the fae and how alike we are. I highly recommend this book because you will not see the end coming. I received this book from Audiobooks Unleashed for free and this is my honest opinion.

Follow me down the rabbit hole...

Some authors write in a rather One dimensional universe, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, but as I dive into Gwendolyn Druyor's books, I've discovered that her envisioned universe is much, much more than that! If you follow me down the rabbit hole which Druyor has dug for us, you'll see that one story follows a Were-human, while another has a tooth fairy, and then this particular story (Dee), is from a Banshee's point of view... A Banshee who happens to be a cop! Best of all, the books I've read are complete stand-alones, but if you read just one, I expect that you're gonna be hooked, and you'll soon feel the need to read Druyor's other, delightfully "wyrdo" books! And Gwendolyn Druyor's voice acting is fantastic...

Extremely good

This book was extremely good. The writer does a wonderful job writing the characters and building them up. I only wish that the story was longer, it went by too fast.

Short Story

It was my first book by Gwendolyn Druyor. This is the first book in the Wyrdos Tale. This is a short story, interesting, captivating and strange. The story is well written and the storyline is fast-paced and intriguing. The narration is great and easy to listen. I love Gwendolyn Druyor's voice.

Great Quick Read

Any additional comments?

Dee: A Wyrdos Tale by Gwendolyn Druyor was a good quick read. There is a group of Wyrdos that are banding together to save the city. Dee is someone that will care for you when you die even if no one else will. I can't wait to read more by Gwendolyn Druyor.

Great story concept, amazing narrative voice

I love listening to Gwendolyn, her voice is fantastic. This is the first book written by her & I really enjoyed it. It does feel like a novella for a bigger world though & I'd love to hear more, especially some full novels, as I think there is loads to explore within it!

Who needs super hero's when you have Dee

I really enjoyed Gwendolyn Druyor's shifter school, where we caught a glimpse of the Wyrdos, so was really glad to see a few of the characters had there own storylines. Gwendolyn sure doesn't disappoint she packs so much In such a short amount of time, just wish it had been longer. It is a very cleverly crafted tell that will have you wanting the rest of the series. The characters are unique and very interesting, who else can weave a story with a Banshee, Brownies, the Bogeyman and dragons and not make it weird. Off to start the next book. Dee is a cop and she has a secret that only her partner knows. She is also a Banshee. Being a cop she sees a lot of death but how does she cope with it and stop it from taking a toll on herself, especially when she for sees the death of her partner and her only real friend. A man who had secrets. Can she track down his killer? Save herself and the city at the same time? Gwendolyn is one of my favourite narrator's (and fast become one of my favourite authors too). She just has a way with words that no one else can copy. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request from audiobooksunleashed and have voluntarily left this review.
