Publisher's Summary

Lexi didn't set out to steal a god's ring, but when a magic artifact starts trying to talk to you, what's a girl supposed to do? She's always had the ability to talk to animals, but this new development amps up the crazy. Now she's afraid her power is out of control and she's losing her mind. The only person who could possibly reassure her that she's not going mad is her mother, who has always refused to discuss the source of Lexi's strange ability. Now that the jewelry is getting chatty, maybe she'll finally spill the beans.

Unfortunately, going home means a trip back to the human territories, and Lexi only just made it out of there alive last time. She's hoping for a quick visit, but with a god hell-bent on retrieving the ring and a fireshaper she might have accidentally betrayed on her tail, life is about to get horribly complicated - for her and everyone she cares about.

GOOD CONTINUATION.

Lots of action and intrigues. Lexi is trying to help the best she can but she is faced with insurmountable issues. Jake thinks she betrayed him. There are the gods, like Hades, Apollo and Cerebus, the 3 headed dogs from hell also came to help thwart the shadows from killing off the gods. Very interesting continuation. I am starting the next book and I hope Marina Finlayson will write more books in this series and that Hollie Jackson will continue to narrate/perform them. Worth a credit.

Shifters, gods, and more!

Murdered Gods is book two by Marina Finlayson and narrated by Hollie Jackson. Our gal now goes looking for the mother who kicked her out to ask her questions only to find herself in the middle of trouble. Shadow shifters are capturing gods for their power but they need the ring our gal has on her finger! Super exciting!
Narration was spot on!!!

Great 2nd book in the Series

Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, the first in this series!

Any additional comments?

This was a wild ride. Lexi has decided that maybe not ALL shapers are as bad as she thought. That being said, when you take a ring that was in the possession of one and he was just starting to trust you, well that doesn't really help build his trust. Seeking answers brings her more questions than answers.

Is she a member of this new group she met and just forgot? Are they who she hopes they are or who Jake says they are? Confusion and hope tangle in her. Nothing from her past is as she remembers. Her new friends may not be friends at all and Jake may never trust her again.

This should be a short story

This story is a good concept but it lacks substance. I like the characters and I the plot is interesting. However, the story isn't developed enough to support a complete story. Lexi makes stupid decisions that if explained more thoroughly might have made sense. Her relationship with Jake is also underdeveloped and vague. The concept of the story is also flimsy and seems more like an outline or story notes. All of this makes the pacing of the story off and there are chapters in which nothing happens. I don't think I'll be giving the third book a try.

voice actor

the voice actor could use different voices. the voice of the main character was consistent. but Jake's voice was repeated for mutable characters. this caused a chapter with two of the characters with the same voice to become contusing for me, who usually listens as I fall asleep. having to reply the chapter 3 times. all and all. I loved the story.
