Summary

Detroit artist Meagan Kelly has had a strong sixth sense all her life, but that doesn’t mean the gorgeous stranger’s crazy story—that she’s a half-elf, half human heiress—is true. But Meagan can’t deny the evidence of her own eyes—he’s Fae. A tall, blond, handsome, pointy-eared elf—and a man she just can’t get enough of.

Ric Thornhill’s assignment just got a lot more complicated. The more time he spends with Meagan, the harder it is to see her as a political tool to prevent an all-out war between humans and Fae.

Now Meagan’s in a race to master her newly released powers in time to prevent the conflict, convince a jealous Queen not to strip Ric of his powers, and find out if she can build a life that straddles two worlds.

Horrible narrator!

This could be a good book but I can't finish listening because the narrator's voice is wrecking the story for me. Definitely listen to the sample before you purchase. I wish I had.

Narrator with no talent

A good light story but not the most original, the narrator is horrible with no talent. If you can stand the narrator than the book is a good listen.

Save This Story!!!

GET A NEW NARRATOR PLEASE!!!! The story wasn't half bad. But the narrator totally ruined it. Have you ever heard a black man from Detroit speaking with a Scottish accent????
GEEZZZ!! In fact everyone sounded the same, bored!!! The female lead sounded as if she could have cared less about anything. The tonal quality was so bad, I just wanted the story to be over. The story itself sounded interesting but the narrator ruined it.

Audible get someone else to read this book. Save it please!!

do not ever use this narrator

ok Cindy is wonderful but the reader of this novel droned on and on and on and there was no emotion where there should be and so many pauses that it made the reader sound realy bad i own hundreds of e books and audio books and i have never come across such a bad read job on a really great book ever now she has a nice voice but not showing a lot of skill just sounded bored dreadfully bored at that i will not buy another book she reads just left a bad taste.i am a avid reader and audio purchaser i suggest books to my group of military wives we read or listen and discuss many aspects and mrs pape is a great author this a good book but reader did not do this piece of work justice Melissa from awbr army wife book review club just a hobby group for moms wife's and women who love to read thanks audible i will recommend to our other ladies to come here and pick it up or get a written copy but to look past the reader i love you guys you got me through two deployments and another coming up thanks

4 Star Story....1 Star Narration

I loved the story and had previously read the e-book, so had been very excited to listen to the audio, the narrator was horrible for this book. While she may be good on the other stuff she narrates she did not do this book or its author justice. I am happy to see that she does not narrate the second book in the series. It would be nice to see this one re-done in the future with a better narrator.

Encore, please!

I really enjoyed this audible book. Are there any more from the author in this series?

I cannot hear the story for the narration

The story, in a nutshell, is about a woman living in current time in Detroit, MI. The narrator is, I'm guessing, a woman from Ireland, or at least having an accent that, to me, sounds it. The speech patterns involved (word emphases and voice patterns and rates of speech and awful accents) are throwing me off; listening is proving to be an effort rather than 'a fun read'.

On top of the accent and speech patterns, and whether it is culture or the producer's idea, the woman protagonist sounds whiny. The male protagonist comes across somewhere between supercilious and arrogant. There is very little definition of voices other than aforementioned tones. I've found it difficult to figure out who is talking and the author wasn't good about adding 'he said' 'she said'. NONE of the characters are people I particularly want to hang around with.

When I can filter out the narration, the story seems pretty average; adopted child turns out to be half Sidhe princess and the male half is full Sidhe hunting for her to keep the bad guys from overthrowing the Queen, whom no one seems to like anyway. Perhaps in print, when in my head they can sound Midwestern or sexy or baritone or werewolf-y or whatever I'd care. And yes, I did pass on this book several times after listening to the 'sample'; but after reading a review of the PRINT version, I forgot why I'd passed on the ORAL one. YMMV, of course,

good story - bad performance

Is there anything you would change about this book?

love this story if you can get past the narration. Can't wait to listen to the other books. Hopefully with a different narrator...

Was Motor City Fae worth the listening time?

Absolutely

wasn't crazy about narrator

but enjoyed book enough to move on to the next book in the series. having it focus on the fae in lieu of the usual vamps and weres was a good twist. enjoyed main characters and I am wondering where arc will progress

Could do with a better narrator!!

Would you try another book from Cindy Spencer Pape and/or Terry Donnelly?

I would try another book by this author only if it has a different narrator. I could barely get through before I finally gave up, she gave such an emotionless performance.

How could the performance have been better?

Had it been a better performance I might have enjoyed the book.
