Publisher's Summary

Clio might be a nymph living in exile among humans. And she might possess the rare ability to mimic any magic she sees. And she might have just seriously ticked off the most powerful family of spell weavers in the Underworld. But she is not in love with an incubus. 

Lyre is the rebellious black sheep of the Weaver family, and he's the only reason she survived her recent Underworld "vacation". He's also the sexiest thing she's ever seen. Together, they have to track down a catastrophically dangerous magic - a magic he created, she sort of stole, and they both lost - before his family gets their hands on it. 

And that means fighting alongside him in a desperate attempt to avert complete disaster. But she is definitely not in love with him. At least, she's pretty sure she's not. Mostly sure. Maybe sure? Crap.

Mostly good

Overall, the book is mostly enjoyable. There's lots of action which keeps it interesting. What's really disappointing is the number of times that the main character acts like a dimwit. I can't understand it. There are many times where she's extremely skilled and defeats enemies with ease. Then there's other times that she sounds like a whiny naive child, or just stands there doing nothing while watching things go horribly wrong, or doesn't use the powers we were previously told she possesses. Why can't we get a female character who is consistently smart and capable, especially from a female author? There should be challenges and failures along the way of course, but not because the character acts like a different person. This was portrayed in both the writing and the female narration. It was frustrating to listen to some parts. The whiny parts were the worst.

Vivid and never boring!

I actually read the Steel and Stone series first and then read these. WIsh they'd come out in reverse but the story is definitely worth listening too! Lyre and Clio are some of my new favorites! Highly recommend them if you are looking for something different and full of adventure!

GOOD CONTINUATION

Enjoyable. Clio and Lyre are in caught in desperate situations. Clio is rather naive and is therefore sometimes impulsive. The tensioned moments are very well projected/written by Annette Marie. I find myself so engrossed in the story that I am kept awake through the night finishing the story. Very talented writer. The narration/performance by both narrators are good though as I said in my previous review for book 1 the voices for the characters differ being narrated by different narrators spoils it.
