I really wanted to listen to him speak but there's these high pitched chime noises, that I assume we're meant to be soothing, (along with other noises that felt like they were literally rattling my brain. Which is such a shame because I was genuinely intrigued in what was being said. I made it to episode 2 and couldn't handle it anymore. It might have just been me but those with issues like those on the spectrum go in carefully

Take a shot everytime she mentions painting!

Personally I couldn't stand the two main characters, especially Feyre. I honestly can't put my finger on why. But if there is more Lucien and Rhysand in the next book I might consider dipping my toe in again.

Amazing, new adult supernatural mystery!

I could easily put this as my favourite book this year and most definitely put it in my top ten books of all time.

I'll definitely be looking for more by the narrator as well as writer.

I have learned more from this book than I did in 3 years of screenwriting classes.

I did really like this, but it doesn't translate as well on audio, there's too many moments she asks you to sit down and do something (which is a bit hard when walking the dog).

If you're a fan of the Try Guys then give this a go (especially audio), they translate well into book form. It's also nice to listen to a "self-help" book that the author is trying as writing.

It's short and sweet, and though I think it would have made an amazing full length novel in Derek Landy's style, it is perfect the way it is.

Pop Culture Bog Down

As good as this finale is (and don't get me wrong it is good) I feel a lot of the build up within the book is bogged down with too much pop culture references. Which I get is a Derek Kandy "thing", but usually there are either less if them or more subtle in reference. I just felt bombarded with all of them, and it took away from the actual story.

I wish there was more focus on certain aspects and less on others. Hopefully, as with the Skulduggery series, another trilogy might be able to delve deeper into the Milo story as well as the F.O.L.

Still worth a listen and read. Kathryn Griffith's has become one of my favourite narrators and I will be seeking out more of her work.

Better than the first

This story is just getting better, and the voice acting is so good. Can't wait to listen and read the next book in the series.
