Good quick listen.

Devil to pay was a great short story addition to the Night Huntress series.
Tavia Gilbert delivered the high quality performance that I have come to expect from her.

Lovely nightmare

Where does Devil to Pay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love this short story. The premises of the book is intriguing and I really like the characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like Blake and Elise, both works perfectly with each other.

What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

I like how she envelopes you into the story.

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

***Spoiler Alert*** at the end when Elise is trying to bring back Blake and fear he's not going to come back.

Any additional comments?

Worth every penny!

I love Elise!

This is a sweet yet a little nuts kind of story. Elise is a recluse who hides in the shadows so she doesn’t get caught up in carrying for anyone. Things change though by an unexpected encounter. She finds out just how much she needs the man who fell at her feet.

Too short but cute

Too short for a full credit or $! Good story but didn’t realize it was so short until after I bought it.

wish it were longer

loved these two characters but I would've loved a much longer story helping to flesh out their relationship.

Cute short story

The story takes place in the Night Huntress World with Bones, his co-ruler, & Cat acting as support characters. This, however is Elise & Blake's love story. The story will pull on your heart strings and have you rooting for the couple. A nice edition to the series. Ms. Gilbert did a fantastic job narrating.

Good listen

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It only had the Night Huntress character for a very few lines. It was too simplistic, no depth of anything.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jeaniene Frost? Why or why not?

I have all her Night Huntress, Night Prince and Night Huntress World.

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I buy books just because she is the performer. Most all of her Jeanine Frost books, all of Diane Duvall's and now I have found some new series she does. She should have an academy award for the Immortal Guarding Series.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

This shouldn't be a movie. Her Night Prince should be a movie, not series.
