When you're a witch named Trouble, chaos follows.
Arden Lesstymine (known to everyone as Trouble) likes attention as much as the next girl, but this is getting ridiculous. When an insane stranger is murdered at the inn where she works, Trouble becomes the next Soulbearer for the disembodied god of chaos, Loku. Yes, it comes with the ability to channel the god's limitless power, but at the cost of her sanity - literally. Now she has a sexy but cynical knight claiming to be her protector, a prince trying to seduce her to his cause (and his bed), and a snarky chaos god who offers a play-by-play commentary on it all, whether she wants to hear it or not. To make matters worse, a necromancer wants to capture the soul of Loku for his own dark purposes, and the only way he can get it is by killing her first.

Stupid, Brainless Characters
Not entirely sure. If not for the utter stupidity of the main character, and the totally obnoxious "handsome Prince" this might have been a fun story. The lead female is too stupid to be true. Vacillating between one male lead to the other, while vowing never to follow the path her mother trod, which is the very path she's happily skipping down. I absolutely detest the character of Kell, the so called handsome prince. I find characters like him sickening. The underlying story seems to be a good concept, and there's a great deal of humour mixed in. I'll keep listening, and hope the lead female character gets her head out of her armpit.
Not sure again. Less stupid characters might make a difference.
I am a big fan of Gabra Zackman, having listened to her performance of the Ixia series by Maria V. Snyder, and loving it. My favorite character in this story has to be Loku, with Dev a very close second. These are two very, very different characters, but Ms Zackman gives them such presence and depth. Plus the humour comes across in Ms Zackman's delivery of some of Loku's more outrageous comments.
Aside from punching Kell in the mouth, no, not really.
I tend to like character driven stories, and that means I like well written characters. Some of the characters in this book are good, but the lead female character of Arden, or Trouble as she is better known is just too brainless. She irritated me so much I wanted to slap her. Plus, as I've already said, I detest characters like Prince Kell. Him I would gladly have thrown to the necromancer, with the plea that he improve his personality by making him undead. It would have been an improvement from the self-satisfied, arrogant, condescending, snob he was to start with.
