Publisher's Summary

Being a faerie princess isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Ivy must go to Faerie, but the gateway to the Wisp Court is through Tech Duinn, the house of Donn - Celtic god of the dead. Just her luck.

Unable to share her secret with Jinx, and with Jenna called away on Hunters' Guild business, Ivy must rely on Ceff and Torn to lead her to Death's door, literally, and back again. As if that wasn't dangerous enough, there's no saying what horrors lay in store within the Faerie realm. Too bad the Wisp Court is the one lead Ivy has in the search for her father - and possible salvation.

Maybe hiding away and dodging sidhe assassins isn't so bad after all.

Birthright is the fourth full-length novel in the award-winning Ivy Granger urban fantasy series by E.J. Stevens. The world of Ivy Granger, including the Ivy Granger Psychic Detective series and Hunters' Guild series, is filled with action, paranormal mystery, magic, dark humor, quirky characters, bloodsucking vampires, flirtatious demons, sarcastic gargoyles, sexy shifters, temperamental witches, psychotic faeries, and snarky, kick-butt heroines.

Good story

I started this series with book 4. I feel that i missed a lot but the story line was pretty good. It is about Ivy Granger who solves cases with her friend. She is half wispTand half human.

The main part of the story is she goes to Faerie along with her fiance, Ceff who is the king of the Kelpies and Thorn who is a cat Sidhe and a brownie named Skilly. She goes to Fairie to find out about her father and her to get information to try to stop assassination attempts by the Unseelie.

She meets her uncle, Cade, and he teaches her about her powers. Meanwhile, Ceff and Thorn disappear along with the adder stone of her people. It appears they left and stole the stone. However, all is not what it seems. There is secrets about her birthright as princess of the wisp.

She looks and looks for her friends but cannot find them. Finally after a long time in Fairie she decides to continue her learning and embrace her role. After a bad day in the court she and Skilly find a hallway she has not seen before. They find here uncles room and it has hidden passageway. Once they down the passageway they discover a hidden dungeon and then all secrets come to light.

Five Incredible Stars!


Wow, what an entertaining story!

I really enjoyed this audiobook and performance; however, because I didn't listen to the first three stories in the series, I felt I was missing some details BUT this did not in anyway impact my rating. Birthright does provide enough information, back details, and is such an intriguing story, with a plot that really drew me in. I didn't feel lost, but do think the plot would have been much richer if read in order.

This was certainly a fast paced story, full suspense, action, some romance and great character development. I really liked Ivy!

Melanie and Anthony provided an excellent performance which enhanced the overall audiobook experience! They really brought the characters to life.

Overall, this was a fantastic, and I'm going to have to go back, and listen to the prior stories!

Great Urban Fantasy Story About Ivy Granger

Birthright is the 4th book in the Ivy Granger series. I have not read the first 3 but I really enjoyed this one.

Ivy is a great character and it is easy to get sucked into this story. All characters are well developed and easy to follow.

I like having 2 narrators. It makes it a nice addition to the listening experience. You will find mystery, suspense, action, and romance in this book. And some betrayal as well... It is quite entertaining!

This book is very well written with a great heroine. I'm going to look for the previous 3 and listen to them as well.

OMG!

The ending came out of nowhere on this one for me. I can normally see what is going to happen later on and just have to wait fot it. Not this one. It blindsided me and then all of it came together. If I would have read the first 3 in the series, this might not have happened, but I am glad it did.

Ivy has to visit Faerie to get to the Wisp's Court. She takes a couple of cohorts with her and then the fun starts. It might be bad for Faerie Land, because she decides she needs to kill a few of the main players off while getting to the Wisp's Court. Writers should be real pissed at this author because she took half of their characters away in one book. But, as they say,"Oh Well".

As you can tell, I really liked this book. I think that I will have to read the first 3 in the series now. I would love to tell you parts of the book, but I do not revel a lot in my reviews. Just enough to get you to read it. The characters were developed with great thought and the plot moved along with ease. Did not bounce around at all.

Get it. Read it. Then put it on your shelve for a later date.

will have readers panting for the next book.

AudioBook Review:
Overall: Stars: 4 Narration 4 Story 4

Firstly – you should start this series from the beginning – each new book builds on the last, and you would be wondering just where this or that element came from. For those who have read the earlier books in the series, this picks up after the events in book three, Burning Bright, and poor Ivy is right in the mix.

By this point, we know that Ivy is able to ‘feel’ others, and is determined to ferret out the abnormal events happening in Harborsmouth. To that end, she has, with her best friend Jinx, opened a detective agency. With multiple issues happening here, there and everywhere, Ivy is constantly struggling to find a balance between her life, her newly discovered genetics, her boyfriend and her best friend.

Now with one answer to her many questions, Ivy needs to rely on Ceff (her boyfriend – a Kelpie King) and Torn (a cat shifter) as she wants to discover more about her father. She’s only just discovered her half-fairy heritage, and with someone still seeking to do her harm, she’s got to make these discoveries without sharing her ‘back from the dead’ status. But, as it always is, nothing is easy for Ivy – and with a new demon to defeat, an uncle who just may be plotting against the kingdom and a plot that is far more dangerous than she ever expected – the action just keeps on coming.

Ivy and her friends are well developed and likable, and with each book they seem to grow more distinct and confident as they accept their own powers and find confidence in successes. Even if those successes are often more a result of luck than actual skill. World building for the series is solid and intriguing, and with each new dimension that opens up, the world is unique and fresh. This book is full of action, angst and several moments for sadness –but fits solidly into the collection and will have readers panting for the next book.

Narration for this story is provided by Melanie A. Mason and Anthony Bowling, and they both presented and enhanced the story. With subtle differentiation in tone, delivery and pitch, the characters were presented as distinct individuals while subtle pauses, pacing changes and emotional overtones added to the story giving readers additional audible input to increases in action, danger or emotion. The narration allowed me to get lost in the story and moments, seeing and experiencing events as Ivy did, although without the mortal danger.

I received an audiobook copy of the title from the author via AudioBook Jukebox for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Ivy finally learns about herself!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Birthright?

Ivy gets a trip into Faerie. She starts to see her wisp side closer, learning more of what she's looking for. She gets time with a family member. But what she learns in the end is a shocker! Just wait until you learn what Ivy finds out about herself. Wow.

Which character – as performed by Melanie A. Mason and Anthony Bowling – was your favorite?

We get the dual voices of Melanie and Anthony, for female and male characters. Melanie feels the voice of what I hear or think of with Ivy. Anthony does a little voice for Sparky that reminds me of a little kid. Anthony does a few different voices and personalities with his voice for many different small character parts. I do like that the two narrators together gives us the opportunity to have one act out what is happening under the other's narration. They add in a few small audio affects as well, stone sliding over stone and water falling. Cool! However, I don't think it was my ipod but when Ivy and friends get to Faerie it seems the background becomes thicker--Ch 23 on audio. There are a few chapters that sound as though muffled, like the background is thick. after that too. It's not a huge thing but I did pick it up.

Any additional comments?

The introduction is changed! The part about Ivy being the PI to inquire with, is different. It says that she's dead!

One thing I notice with each book is that we get each characters history the first time we meet them. This is the fourth book and I remember hearing the histories each time. I think at this point, we can back down on that detailed list. But I do like small hints of past events to remind us, and if it's from a novella that's not needed to continue in the series it makes you curious to get them.

Ivy's relationship with Ceff also grows. And her friendship with Torn is really something. She spends a good bit of time with Ceff and Torn, and they go through a lot for her. The two do have quick clips back and forth that is competition of each other but so fun too. They do torment each other, at least Torn torments Ceff with quick comments to Ivy. lol. We also have a new friend, Skilly. He grows on you quick.

This story had me thinking about past stories. I think Ivy, or someone, had contact with Queen Mab in a novella, and I need to go back to double check.

This is a series that is quick and easy to follow for me. Seeing it's summer time, I would highly suggest listening to this as you relax for the summer.

Fun and Exciting

What made the experience of listening to Birthright the most enjoyable?

I really liked the characters and loved listening to this book.

What other book might you compare Birthright to and why?

There are many books that are paranormal romance, some of my favorites are the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole, Thea Harrison's books, as well as J.R Ward and Kerrlyn Sparks. All these authors add myths and magic to modern day settings and make alternate worlds which show how these creatures adapt with the centuries and shows you their hidden worlds.

Which character – as performed by Melanie A. Mason and Anthony Bowling – was your favorite?

I liked the little demon, he was super cute, other than that it was the main female character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Girl is a princess of her people, she is forced to fight for her life and goes on a journey to fairy to try to visit her father's land.

Any additional comments?

I got this book in exchange for a review from audibook boom.

Birthright: Ivy Granger, Psychic Detective

What did you like most about Birthright?
There was so so much in this story ,especially as this is my second time listening to it.However a favorite part was what Ivy did in Tech Duinn, the house of Donn - Celtic god of the dead and what she learned there and who she met I am sure you will see the irony at the end of the book but by that time I can pretty much guarantee you will be in complete shock!
What does Melanie A. Mason and Anthony Bowling bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The book itself is amazing but as much as I love the feel of paper and the smell of the pages I always prefer audio performances .The narration by Melanie A. Mason and Anthony Bowling was very good. they have a huge range of voices at their disposal and they give a real acting performance and I am sure Stevens would think it a worthy realisation of her prose.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was and they all are,I recently was given a copy of book 5 "Hound's Bite"so I listened to the whole series again and love it all the more.What E.J. Stevens did with that phenomenal ending that had me smiling ear-to-ear and teary-eyed at its sheer perfection. It was totally worth every time I cried and sobbed and went crazy over her devastating story got at times and gave me a solace of utter joy. Happiness is not a good enough word to describe what I was feeling when they were reunited.You will be in for a huge shock in this book! One that I did not see coming until a subtle trail of bread crumbs was dropped in the last half of the book.Creative writing wizardry!
