The struggle against not-so-charming storybook narratives isn't the only complicating factor in Henrietta "Henry" Marchen's life. As part of the ATI Management Bureau team protecting the world from fairy tales gone awry, she's juggling her unwanted new status as a Snow White, dealing with a potentially dangerous Pied Piper, and wrangling a most troublesome wicked stepsister - along with a budding relationship with Jeff, her teammate.
But when a twisted, vicious Cinderella breaks out of prison and wreaks havoc, things go from disenchanted to deadly. And once Henry realizes someone is trying to use her to destroy the world, her story becomes far from over - and this one might not have a happily ever after.
Indexing: Reflections is New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire's continuing new urban fantasy, where everything you thought you knew about fairy tales gets turned on its head.

most annoying narrator I've ever heard
"Oh my gawd!" how anyone can stick with this book is beyond me. the voice the narrator chose for Sloane (who is a central character in this novel) is the most annoying, whiny voice you can imagine. It's like a dumb blonde, whose voice goes up at the end of every sentence like a question. The story has a good premise but the author seems to twist the "narrative" or "story" to explain away any plot holes. it doesn't end up making a lot of sense. I can't listen any further, her characters come across as teenagers trying to be edgy by swearing and threatening violence like they're supposed to be so intimidating. this Sloane character is supposed to be hundreds of years old, why does she sound like a 12 year old emo valley girl?!!!

As seems to be really common with Seanan's duologies (well, at least this one and Velveteen vs.) the first book is very good but the second is outstanding.
The only criticism (and hence the 4 star performance rating despite 5 star story and overall ratings) is that Sloane's voice - "Whiney California Gurl" - didn't seem quite right in the first book.
While it's good that consistency was maintained by the narrator, not quite right turned into "absolutely wrong" for fitting with her character as she developed in this book!
Ms. Kowal does the voice wonderfully, but it was a poor choice for the character.

Why do her books have to end???
Honestly, I never want her books to end. The characters, the worlds, the storylines... And the narration, I could listen forever. I listen to Audio books every day and Seanan Mcguire's books are at the top of the list of books that captivate me. Mary's narration bring the books to life in a way that make the characters feel like friends. More, please?!

The story is great and the narrator did a good job for the most part. Her narration of Sloan was so irritating that my skin was crawling. I'm actually listening now and it's infuriating me.
