Publisher's Summary

Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Airhead novels, brings listeners the first installment in an exciting fantasy series about the underworld. When 17-year-old Pierce spots John Hayden, her first impression is that he’s a murderer. And she’s right—sort of. Fighting a strange attraction she feels towards John, Pierce struggles to discover what’s really behind a mysterious death—and what she discovers may make her wish she’d stayed in the dark.

fine

The narration was so inviting and lulling that I found myself engaged on a level I think the book alone would have not been able to achieve.

Too slow, disappointed in story

The performance was fine, even good, but the story is just terribly slow. The whole book seems like a set up for a series rather than setting up an engaging story that readers can't wait to continue. There were parts that were good, but this could have been edited down to a few hours instead of dragging on and on and on.
