Awful narration

The story's alright - not fantastic, not terrible - but the narration is truly awful. I had to turn the volume up to be able to hear the dialogue which is recorded at much loerr level than the almost shouty main narration. The narrator rrads too fsst and her intonation feels rrally unnatural. Ruined the story for me

Lots of characters

First Psi book I've heard although I have read them all non have been available in the UK on Audible. I loved it although only a short book and free (thank you) this was an excellent book to start with. The narrator was fabulous so many different voices as it was filled with so many of the characters and she was great really brought the story to life. I would buy the entire series if it was available.

Interesting, but not what I was expecting

I don't remember why I downloaded this short story, as it was some time ago (last Christmas or the one before) and I had no idea what it was about or what the author writes.

I only listened to this because I'm between books and it was on my unlistened to list and short, I'm pleasantly surprised and will be looking at more books in the series, partly because I'm confused as to the characters (and the cat thing) but also because I enjoyed it. Not badly written and a good narration...

I hope I won't be disappointed by the other books

Need to Have Listened to the Series

I grabbed this short story, due to the time of year. It is very short and there is not much plot. After looking into it, it is part of a series. I think this would mean much more if I had listened to the series. I know in other series I have read, I love little novellas like this. I am sure that is the same for people who know adn love this series.

Angela Dawe does a fabulous job with the voices.

Christmas in the Kitchen

What a sweet little short for us all to enjoy and fall even more in love with all these characters.

The narration even though it is by the same narrator was a little different.. But still lovely.

what?

There was nothing here. People baked cookies and looked at their mates. The narrator's voice was dire.

A fun little freebie from the author / publisher

A short story set at Dorian's home. Ashaya is baking Christmas goodies with Keenan and Dorian when visitors come calling. Holiday merriment ensues. No real plot and nothing very meaningful is said, but nonetheless the camaraderie is delightful, as always.

Thank you for the gift!

(Admittedly, I opened it long before Christmas.)

A peek inside Dorian/ Ashaya house.

A nice 20 minute teaser to get me in the mood for more from the Psy-Changling world that is coming out next week. Thanks audible for the freebie.

love this series!

I love this series!! Read it multiple times. I love the characters. I love their stories. I love this magical world and complexities within the world and characters. Nalini is an amazing writer and a source of inspiration — I laugh. I cry. I get sucked into her stories and stay up late reading. I always know I’m about to have an epic experience reading one of her books. I always pre-order her stories! Do not miss out on this series because you may have been swayed by negative reviews. These books are amazing!!!
Note: This review is long overdue and will be the same for all the books in the series.

Cute story

This was a great comedic relief after the heart wrenching story that thankfully ended well with Katya and Dev

Cute short story

This is a cute short story of a sweet moment in DarkRiver. I wasn’t as excited by narrator Angela Dawe’s performance as I’d hoped, but it was ok.
