Could you find a hotel for a harpy? Or a bar for a Bigfoot?Following the disaster that was her last job, Zoë is searching for a fresh start as a travel writer in New York City.
After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position, though, Zoë is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can't take off her résumé - human. Not to be put off by anything - especially not her blood-drinking boss or death goddess co-worker - Zoë delves deep into the monster world. But her assignments turn deadly when the careful balance between humans and monsters starts to crumble with Zoë right in the middle.

I've been a fan of mur for years now and she only seems to get better,
shambling is a side ways look at an alternative ny city where every conceivable type of being is out there somewhere, its intelligent witty and even pretty hot and steamy in places, mur! who knew!
a sure fire hit would definitely recommend 5*
Probably not - it was a junk food kind of book, something you veg out with rather than savour. I'm also not the biggest fan of urban fantasy, which I always forget until I read some, but it held up well.
Yes she did, with her varied voices. I will say that her accent is quite jarring, however, especially for a British audience.
The romance was obviously predictable, but the zombie problem took some interesting turns, as did the Big Bad. Overall, it surprised me by subverting my expectations.
Funny, Charming and Engaging
This book was wonderfully read by the author herself, a brilliant listen that you just didn't want to put down. Looking forward to the second book also coming out in audio format.
After the heaven series it's great that this is here. happily devouring all Mur can write. love it.
"Buy this book!"
Well done Mur Lafferty! I was well impressed with this book that was written and read by Mur. She did great with both. Support new authors and pay for this book. She has given us enough for free!! Great story and narration
"Fresh, fun and different."
I really enjoyed this book. It had new ideas and a fresh take on monsters in the big city.
The author is very good as an narrator. She doesn't have an actors perfect trained voice but that just gives the main character a feeling of being real.
I really love it when authors read their own work. I actually originally found the book as a paper back and liked it. Then I saw that the audio book was read by the author , immediately bought it and loved it.
Can't wait for Mur Lafferty's next book.
