The book was good actually but the ending just dropped off.
I feel the author is more interested in getting me to buy the next book then having a full and complete plot.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
It heavily depends on personal preferences. Lore does resemble some parts of Neil Gaiman's "American gods" although perspective is vastly different.It should appeal to the fans of genre - female POV, strong character and lore references. Depicted culture and characters do not lack details by any chance.Since I'm not quite a fan of genre - time spent listening was good enough to pass time, but not quite there to detach me from life and focus on listening.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
A little bit more emotion/mindset into what it would "feel" like to be part of culture, that interacts with society and hidden right next to it.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
On one hand - voice casting an immortal must have been somewhat tricky - a level of apathy is expected, though throughout the book overall lack of emotion did cause attention to blur.
Was Ink Witch worth the listening time?
If you are a fan of the genre - it's a decent book to grab. Otherwise - it's good enough to pass a few hours, but will not end up as a memorable book in library.
Any additional comments?
Comments based on experience of mid-twenties male.

If you could sum up Ink Witch in three words, what would they be?
If you haven't read/listened to the Echo in Time trilogy (plus 2 novellas), I think you'll enjoy this but will be missing a lot of the backstory. This is a fantastic continuation of the Echo in Time series, where Kat was introduced. Very excited for the next installment (already started it!)
What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?
The narrator is fantastic!! She does a great job with the different characters and gives life to Kat's insouciance from the novel; not an easy feat to combine the angst of teenager with an immortal 18-year-old. I hope that she continues to narrate the other 2 novels in this series (I think a 4th is due this summer, hope she does that one too!)
