Publisher's Summary

Fairy and law enforcement agent, Dulcie O'Neil, finds her life is pretty boring at the moment. Her hunky boyfriend and boss, Knight Vander, is busy setting up the new world order in the Netherworld and hasn’t been around much. Consequently, Dulcie is put in charge of Headquarters for the ANC (Association for Netherworld Creatures). Unfortunately for her, she doesn’t have a whole lot to keep her occupied. Well, that is, until Jax Rochefort storms into Headquarters and her life. 

Jax, who’s a member of one of the most infamous illegal potions rings, ups and turns himself in with little to no explanation. Dulcie takes it upon herself to solve the riddle of Jax Rochefort, all the while trying to dodge his obvious advances. Dulcie learns that the new Netherworld government is threatened by the potions cartels, who wish to see their own in power. 

Things heat up when Jax kidnaps Dulcie, all the while claiming to be following orders for his mysterious boss. After discovering that everyone she cares about is directly in the line of fire, Dulcie must do everything in her power to ensure their safety as well as the security of the new Netherworld government.

pretty good

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Going in, I really didn't know this was a series, let alone that this was book 7. That being said, this seemed to stand alone rather well. It took me a little time to get comfortable with the world and the main characters, but I was able to do so, and found I really liked it. This book

Great Series!

This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The narrator did a wonderful job with this book. The narrator did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Okay Read

This series can be read as a standalone. In my opinion this story was not as captivating as others by this author. The story felt rushed and the banter & sexual innuendos between Dulcie and Jax got old and tiresome very fast. Honestly for me the narrator saved this story in that if I were reading this I would have skimmed through alot but the way the narrator read kept me engaged through the audiobook.

A Midsummer Night’s Scream

This is my first book in this series and it’s easy enough to follow as a stand alone but I did feel some things are missing from the story since I have not done the series. And there is a big cliffhanger at the end. The story is nice, but I felt like parts of it are drug out, and some of the male characters tend to act like adolescent boys over the leading lady. All they want to discuss is what they want to do to her sexually. No trying to entice her wine/dine her. The narration is very nice and easy to listen to!

delightful, don't let the so-so reviews stop you!

What about Kate Tyler’s performance did you like?

Kate Tyler takes this book to the highest degree of humor, excitement and mystery. Loved her performance. Incredible talent.

Any additional comments?

Now I have seen some readers/listeners give so-so reviews of this book, but I found it delightful, humorous and addicting. I have read 1-6 but it's been a while so I was glad to see that there was additional novels coming out. I love our main character Dulcie, her sex appeal and her ability to constantly get herself in trouble, no matter what she's doing. Only one problem I would had liked to see more story line on Bram and Dulcie's relationship. It was going really good last book and it was kinda put to the side in this one. Dulcie being a fairy and being in law enforcement is a line of fantasy I haven't seen any other author approach. H.P Mallory approaches it at a fast running leap. I love her stories. This book does end on a cliff hanger, but it's going to be so worth the wait! Thank you to the author for bringing such extraordinary characters to life.

book given to me free of charge for a honest review.

Paranormal creatures and adventure

A Midsummer Night's Scream
The Dulcie O'Neil Series, Volume 7
By: H. P. Mallory
Narrated by: Kate Tyler
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I enjoyed this book, it had the paranormal fun I like but it ended in "to be continued" which I didn't like.
This book has pixies, fae, werewolves, vampires, and more. It has action, romance, adventure, and sexual situations so think 18+. I was thinking this is going to be a 4 star book but then when it just stopped and said, "to be continued", well I hate cliffhangers!
The narrator was great! She made the voices wonderful! All the men, creatures, or women! Great performance!

jumping in at Volume 7...

I started this series on Volume 7 and the heat was turned up by chapter 3! whew! Enjoyed Kate Tyler's narration and the way she brought the characters to life. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Why?

WHY switch narrators at this point in the series?! The first narrator was much preferred IMO. WHY split this into two books. Obviously I haven’t listened to the next book but there was so much fluff here. I’m sure they could have been combined for one book that wasn’t full of fillers. Between the narrator and pointless ramblings it was so hard to finish this.

A bit disappointed.

All of this series has been narrated by Therese Plummer up until this most recent installment. It took a while to get used to the new narrator, which I personally didnt like as much. Also, the overall quality of the audio just wasn't the same. I didn't enjoy it as much as the rest of the series.

A Little Sassy With a Strange Ending

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The story is fast moving and completely centered on the protagonist. The other characters are just complementing her antics. I found the tone of the narration a little too snotty and the characters acting somewhat spoiled at times. It is not a book that you want to read on its own as it ends abruptly without any definite conclusion. The author invites you to listen to the next chapter in a new book for that purpose. Not a standalone book for sure, which I much prefer even when part of a series. That said, the writing is fun and fast-paced and the narration could be a little less sassy, but otherwise good.

somewhere in this book is a story but

I listened until the detailed description of sexual encounter and I thought "Where is the story?" I know its a part of a series but this long detailed sexual encounter had no reason it doesn't add anything.
What took pages could have been written so much quicker ie they missed each other, ..... later sweaty, rumpled. happy he says she says the story moves along.
Example see Faith Hunters Jane Yellowrock series where sex is pacy slightly descriptive and moves the story along.
John Conroes Demon Accords series here sex is suggested at sometimes with fun and gentle humour it's appropriate , left entirely to the imagination of the reader and again moves the story along.
This writer just leaves me feeling a bit queasy and voyeuristic (not nice) I'm no prude but this is just page filling at its worst.
