Summary

Natalia Stokes is a loner, a demon loner with some strange ideas about life and, well, death. Banished from Hell for being a trouble maker, would you believe, Natalia is condemned to walk the Earth with no one to communicate with. You'd think that wouldn't bother her, but even loners get lonely.

Everything changes when a chance meeting brings her to Lauren, a witch in trouble, and she sticks around long enough to help her in the guise of her familiar. The problem is, she then realizes she doesn't want to leave. She quickly learns, however, that life doesn't always go as planned, and she is forced to make a decision that will affect her for the rest of her...let's call it existence.

Just unforgetable, a real page turner,brilliant !!

Would you listen to A Familiar Problem again? Why?

This novel is so prepossessing, funny, vivid. You are there..feeling part of every moment. Sharon Kara has an exceptional gift for conveying the most fantastic fantasy scene in the most connected and convivial way. You identify withall the characters..you laugh and whince and blush with each turn of the plot. Your affection for each character intensifies as their personality unfolds in a dependably satisfying manner.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Familiar Problem?

The fact that it made me laugh outloud whilst listening and walking my dog in the park. Listening is so good i can do the most tiresome task with zest.

Have you listened to any of Emily Gray’s other performances? How does this one compare?

She reads well..her accents are convincing and each personality definitely has his, her, or its own voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Well..when the spider familiar was revealled...the moment it dawned that he had been 'spying'.

Any additional comments?

Sharon Kara has other books..not all on audio..i wish they were..i am addicted to them and they make the perfect companion to an otherwise ordinarily routine day..making it far more exciting and consequently productive.

So FUN!

As always, I'm never disappointed with Sharon Karaa. She has the best imagination, and her characters are awesome! The narrator Emily Gray is great too.

Absolutely entertaining

I love Sharon Karaa’s writing style! Such funny entertaining stories! Natalia’s story kept me listening from beginning to end not wanting to shut it off just as Lauren’s story before it! I can’t wait to read the next one. Sharon easily pulls you into the story and you can feel as if yr sitting there having an actual conversation with the characters..
