Publisher's Summary

Sarah Anderson has found her dream job: Clerk of Court for the District of Columbia Night Court. Dream job, that is, until she’s attacked in the open courtroom by a vampire defendant. And until she’s forced to take self-defense lessons from her boss, the enigmatic vampire James Morton. And until she learns that she can’t share the truth about any of that with her best friend, Allison Ward – even over delectable cupcakes from the Cake Walk bakery. Soon, Sarah is surrounded by vampires, griffins, and sprites – all members of a secret supernatural court. And when a deceptively easy-going reporter starts to ask questions, Sarah wonders just what answers she is supposed to give… Will Sarah be able to create order in the court?

Vampires, werewolves and sphinx oh my.

This book was really great. it reminded me a little of the Robyn Peterman books. It has vampires, werewolves and other supernaturals. The narrator did a great job with each character. I look forward to reading more in this series.

Unbalanced

This strong modern woman takes on a new role in a court and ends up in a physically abusive relationship, but it’s okay because he heals her broken arm and feels “really bad. On the other hand, the author uses her lead character’s OCD as part of a supernatural gift, which is kind of neat. The narrator should look up unfamiliar words before attempting to sound them out, and had a distracting habit of halting her sentences in. . . . . . inappropriate places.

I seriously dislike the narrator.

YUCK!!!! Narrator or author? IDK!

I am all for a good vampire story, but the voice and accent of the narrator is totally awful. Also, some of the wrong pronunciations of the simplest words are just sad.

Sooooo Boring!!

Don't waste your time on this one! It was a total snooze fest! The story was bad, the narrator was bad, the whole thing was bad! I kept listening hoping it would pick up and get more interesting but it never happened! That's 8 hours of my life I'll never get back. Do yourself a favor and pass on this one!

Horrid narrator

This story has so much to offer. A good plot line and unique twists on mythological environments. But this narrator, cannot read, properly pronounce words,, express the flow and emotions of the story, and characters. The book was almost ruined. It’s not the first time, I’ve listened to a book she’s done. It may well be the last. The pain, and excruciatingly poor job isn’t worth it. I understand why I got to buy this book for 1.99$. It’s not the authors fault, it is the fault of audibles worst narrator, and the production leadership that let this be produced,and provided for purchase. SHAME!

Vampires everywhere at the night court. Mystery, love interests, scary. The book was worth the read. Heard it in Audible.

Performance

The reading was choppy with no inflection. Monotone, pauses for breath timed wrong with sentence structure making it hard to follow. Ended up just reading the book. So much better that way. I use audible for when I drive long distance for work. This this destroyed the story.

Great book, painful narration...

Let me start by saying that I really loved this book. However,in all my years of listening to audible, I have never slammed a narrator like I am about to…the narration was absolutely horrific.
This narrator mispronounced SO many words that it was painful to listen to! Common words!On top of that, she couldn't even say a full sentence without putting weird pauses every 5 or 6 words, no matter what the punctuation originally indicated. I don't know who was the producer, but they obviously were NOT doing their job the day this was recorded.
I did listen to the entire thing because I really liked the story, but I will be buying the e-books for any future books with this narrator.

Please no more Emma Galvin!

I really enjoy Mindy Klaskys writing. Her stories are light and generally fun, but I am pleading, PLEASE, find a different narrator! Emma Galvin has a pleasant voice and I would find her portrayal of these characters if she only knew the meaning of punctuation! She pauses where she shouldn't so often that I find it terribly distracting. As much as I enjoy listening to books I'm afraid that any other Klasky books I purchase will have to be in print not on audible!

Dreadful narration

I quite enjoyed reading Fright Court on my kindle and I thought it would fun to listen to the audible recording of it. HOWEVER....the narration is dreadful -- sorry, but she's awful and I cant understand the positive reviews.
She seems incapable of getting a sentence out without pausing to gasp for breath every three or four words. What is going on here? I'm sorry but I gave up before our heroine even escaped her first experience of the night court. It was just too annoying to continue. Does she get any better? Maybe, later, when I've tried to forget how bad it was, I might dip into the book further on to see if the narration improves but, if not, this will be returned to Audible for a refund.
