October Day is a fantasy hero for adults!!
Great listen. Cool, sassy, fast and sad. A very interesting take on a female fantasy character,She is no superhero, she is an understated woman with everyday worries caught between two worlds.
If you like fantasy, this is worth a listen. I will be listening to the next Toby Daye novel, can not wait to see how this great character progresses!!

You gotta love it
Starting abruptly & with more politics than I have ever experienced irl this story may yet be one of the most amazing worlds I've ever experienced....I just wish the narrator didn't try so hard to do the accents because she's not great at them & it just winds up being kind of uncomfortable.

A fairy tale with grit.
An amazing beginning to a wonderful series. A fairy tale for adults. McGuire does a great job building this world and giving characters some nice depth, without sacrificing action or a nice pace to the story. The narrator was very good and enhanced McGuire's work. Very entertaining. I have already downloaded the second book (A Local Habitation) and look forward to the third book which should be released in September.

Missed Matched Pair
I am currently on my third attempt to make it through this novel. I've put some thought into why Rosemary and Rue isn't working for me. I know that audible reviewers giving negative feedback are rarely appreciated, but here are my thoughts. It seems that McGuire has some fun ideas for her story line. In this case, however, they fall flat. From the opening scene, I found myself a little curious to see what would happen next but mostly completely unaffected by the main character. There is absolutely no character development and I kept thinking "Why is she doing this?" "Why should we care?" "Why so dramatic?" The narrator adds to this sense of blah. Its like watching a soap opera with monotone actors. You know there should be some drama in there somewhere, but can find it in the performance. I can only recommend this book if you are ready for a strange pity party. There are so many fun options in this genre. I would definitely recommend the Mercedes Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs, The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris or Stray by Rachel Vincent long before I sent you to Rosemary and Rue. Good reading
