I'm honestly at a loss. It took forever to get into the story and it didn't really get interesting until the end. I'm sorry but the narration was truly painful to listen to. I'm not sure if I would have disliked the story as much had I just read it. that being said, while the story did improve towards the end (and I do mean the last 5 or 6 chapters), I'm not crazy about the author's writing style. I love audible and the urban fantasy genre, and having just listened to the newest Jane Yellowrock installment perhaps my expectations are unfair. I'm fairly certain Kristine Hvam or Tavia Gilbert should narrate pretty much everything. However, having spent many hours discovering new authors and lesser known gems with perfectly good narrators, all I can say is in my less than humble opinion, this story and this narrator do NOT go well together. I will say this though- the end did leave me curious enough that I'm wondering about the next book. I'm just not sure whether to read it instead or try to listen, as I'm genuinely not sure what bugged me most, the writing style or the narrator. YMMV, seems plenty of people enjoyed it enough to wax poetic - I just wasn't one of them.
