I have enjoyed Christopher Pikes Thirst series and he is a wonderful writer who writes women quite well. And I have to give him props for writing a complete book. He doesn't give you a novella and call it a book. He WRITES a full story in each book. You receive hours of enjoyment from each book without having to buy fourteen quickies, ya know? Witch World held my interest. He was able to go back and forth between the real world and Witch World seamlessly and did so between the characters who existed in both worlds simultaneously. Not and easy job, that.
I wish audible would put the entire Thirst series in their catalog. Even though I've read them, I'd read them again. I started audible books when I was on the road for my job going up and down the Texas coast. I found that when I listen to music, I would get sleepy because of the steady beat. Audiobooks keep my interest and I don't get sleepy. I certainly hope you put any sequels to Witch World in your line up.
Pike tells a huge story that is complex and tells it in an uncomplicated manner. I was so excited to see this new book out and characters I could follow and unfold, finding more than a one dimensional character. From Russ to Whip to Jessie, Pike delivered. All I want is more more more... I understand that a finale for Thirst will be out soon and I will buy it and read it more than once. I so look forward to more of Witch World.
The narration was by Justine Eyre who was nothing less than amazing. You guys did it again. Congratulations!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I am a big Pike fan, but I really did not enjoy this book. The whole story just seemed to drag on and branch out into other stories ultimately to no end.
Maybe someone with more appreciation for Sci-Fi would enjoy this better than I did.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I think I will stick to Gillian Flynn, can't get enough of her books at the moment!
What didn’t you like about Justine Eyre’s performance?
I didn't like Justine's way of speaking at all. That was the first thing that put me off about this audiobook. Justine did not speak clearly and has a habit of allowing her words to drift into a mumble towards the end of a sentence. She also seemed to speak in a whiny pitch when speaking in Jessica's voice which made me come to not like the character! When she spoke for a male character, she made me cringe and reminded me of kids in high school making crank calls and putting on a "man's voice".
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
None for me. I couldn't even finish the audiobook.
