It's hardly possible to honestly say it's a good piece of work, but it was enjoyable and I don't regret purchasing it. Do not expect it to be any..Show More »where near as good as Dresden Files or Iron Druid Chronicles. It seems to have been written by someone far too inexperienced. It totally lacks insight and credibility. The plot is predictable and, in general, often appears to be just an excuse to explore very simple fantasies and desires. The romance has no depth to it and the sex scenes (completely unnecessary btw) are flat out embarrassing. Still, it does capture attention and won't let you get bored. You may also find some of the characters, regardless of how flat they are, quite likeable and it will take you to some really nice, if slightly (polite understatement) naive or cheesy places. Whether we care to admit it or not, it may also appeal to the simple human longings we share. There's love, acceptance, family and magic and it's all good things.
The narrator isn't bad. At least his voice isn't annoying. I do think, however, that his interpretation adds to the issues I've mentioned before. As far as acting and conveying credible emotions is concerned, it's definitely less than you could expect of a pro.
All in all, I would struggle to admit it out loud in public, but I liked it somewhat:)
