Worth a credit! Or two...

I read a sample of this on kindle before purchasing because I’ve gotten very cheap with my credits! I maybe read 3 pages and immediately purchased the audible version. I’m so glad I did. Very different premise and I loved the characters. Enjoyed the actor as well, maybe a bit flat but still very good. Looking forward to the next in the series!

An excellent book

It does run together at times during the narration but the characters are all appealing and interesting. The story is something different. Couldn’t put it down.

Barely okay for me..

Like I said in my comments on Goodreads, I don't get all the rave reviews. I'm certainly glad it's over. The one good thing about the story was the end of Ghost Mother and the nice ending of Frankie and his mother's misery. I did like some of the nuts at the insane asylum, especially Motown, he was a great friend to Jake. Jake's mother was not likable at all. BUT, overall it wasn't a very good story. No sex and the F-bomb was used 15 times. As to the narration: Todd Menesses did a great job on the voices and the emotions when he read.

Fabulous

I received this book free and I’m leaving this review voluntarily. The book starts when Jacob is 12 and is dropped off at a Mental Institution by is Mother who seems to have issues of her own too. Jacob as grown up knowing he has some peculiar powers as when someone wishes for something he feels the urge to carry those wishes out. When he is finally let out of the institution his Mother tells him his Father was someone she met on a travelling fair and he granted her wish for her to have a child that’s when Jacob finds out he’s half Jinn. Really interesting well written book and a great narrator too.
