I struggled with the beginning of this book which surprised me because I love Kristen Ashley's books. I even considered returning it but I'm glad I stuck with it as it got much better once it switched to Keeley's POV. Still, not one of my favourites.

I love all of the Jane Yellowrock books but this one is my favourite by far! From the first 'tap, tap tap tap' to the very last word I was hooked. The story is fantastic and had me both laughing and crying (don't listen to the epilogue whilst driving!). Not only was the story well written and captivating but Khristine's narration brought it to life in an absolutely spellbinding fashion. A masterpiece, well done!

Humble baker-turned-supernatural Alena Budrene is lovely and lethal, and for the first time, she's owning it.

She's on good terms with her difficult mother, and she's growing comfortable with her powers. But just when it seems things are falling into place for Alena, Hera strikes again.

Really liked this as an ending the the series. Sad that it had to come to an end though. I love Greek mythology so enjoyed listening to stories with them in. I especially like Ernie! The narrator did a very good job and I would definitely listen to her again.

Really enjoyed the story although struggled slightly with what seemed to be the quick change from quiet librarian to adept fighter in a short space of time. Overall a very good story with good narration and the ending took my breath away... please translate the next one very soon!

The world of Faerie never disappeared: it merely went into hiding, continuing to exist parallel to our own. Secrecy is the key to Faerie’s survival—but no secret can be kept forever, and when the fae and mortal worlds collide, changelings are born. Half-human, half-fae, outsiders from birth, these second-class children of Faerie spend their lives fighting for the respect of their immortal relations.

Took a little while to get into it but once I did I really enjoyed the story. The narrator was very good and was able to give distinctive voices to each character which always help follow the story. Looking forward to listening to the next one.

After an underwhelming couple of audiobooks (not this author) I was delighted when this one drew me in straight away. The story is fantastic as you'd expect from Kristen Ashley and I really liked the use of two narrators as it helped get into the mindset of whichever character was in control. The narrators were brilliant too which is always a massive advantage. The only downside is that it had to end!
