Summary

The entire Karma series.

Karma

People say karma's a...well, you know. Personally, I don't think I'm that bad.

It's not like I wanted this job. I wasn't even in my right mind when I accepted the position.

Now, I'm surrounded by crazy coworkers like Lady Luck, who's a bit of a tramp,

and Murphy's Law, who's a bumbling oaf. But the worst is Fate. He's got a problem with transfers like myself, and I have to see him constantly. It's unavoidable. We're hunting the same man, my murderer.

Jinxed

Karma, it's what they call me and the very essence of who I am. When I died young, I was recruited by the agency that keeps the Universe running smoothly. As someone with a human past, most of my coworkers consider me inferior.

But not everyone. Something evil has been stalking me for centuries. It's been biding its time, waiting for the moment when it will strike and it needs me to do it.

Its methods of recruitment are tearing apart every aspect of my life. I'm slowly losing myself, both mentally and physically. I don't know who I can count on but I'm finding out how much I'm willing to sacrifice to save the ones I care about.

Fated

Settling the cosmic score is what Karma was drafted by the Universe to do. But what happens when all the humans start going to the dark side? She's got to find the source and the most likely suspect is her long time rival, who outclasses her in both power and resources.

Luckily, she's got a new partner, Fate, but he comes with his own set of complications. The confirmed bachelor has a target of his own.

The Agency

This is a short Karma prequel. This was written after the series was complete to give more insight into the events prior to Karma. It can be read at the beginning or end of the series.

Hormonal on steroids

Karma comes across as a insecure needy control freak, blind to fates true feelings for her, no mater how Many times he spells it out for her not in words but in actions, too much of the story was waisted on karmas irrational & inane self absorbed thoughts and feelings, you don’t have to be blond to be dumb 😏

Fun to listen to

I really enjoyed this audio box set. The only things that bothered me were some parts were very repetitive. e.g. telling us over and over how much Karma liked Fate's body and some of the character voices were so similar I sometimes had to wonder who was 'talking'. I was disappointed when the set finished. I would recommend it to a friend.

Not bad story if you can get over the audio

Sadly the performance was horrific and had me cringing most of the way through. Such a shame that my need to see a story from beginning to end had me stuck listening to that awful sound!

A bit boring

Just couldn't get through it Main character seems shallow, and frankly thick but she's supposed to have been a lawyer with a wonderful career. She must have left her wits and intuition behind at her death.

Fantasy and Reality come together!

The characters in this series are so real that I almost forget that they represent intangible human constructs like Fate, Luck and Karma. With Augustine's articulate and descriptive writing, as well as Clark's perfectly tuned voice telling this story, you'll never want to stop listening.

Makes my ears bleed

This narrator is awful. Totally ruins the story. The story itself is unique and engaging. This narrator beats it to an unreasonable heap of laughable male voices and adds mannerisms and inflections that war with the characters. After reading other reviews I figured I had heard poor narration before and could muscle through it or ignore certain things. This is some of the worst I've heard. Angel Clark manages to turn Fate whiney pompous ass hat with no redeeming qualities. She portrays the character in such a way that completely disrupts the story . Think about reading a serious and touching scene, now have those same characters say the same things non chalantly or in bored tones. That's what you are getting here. Don't t waist a credit.

Good story. Bad choice of narrators.

The story (for the most part) was very good, but the narrator (Angel Clark) had an odd tendency to somehow both over and under state many lines. She also somehow managed to ruin every male character by making them ALL sound like emotionless robots. There was no nuance to her performance of the males in the story.

For some reason, she had a lot of the female characters yelling. Most of the time for no reason I could ascertain! I might be picking this set up on Kindle in the future, because I feel like I missed out on a lot, do to how distracted I got from the performance.

Compelling Story, Okay performance

The story is really interesting once it gets going . Donna Augustine’s dialogue and descriptions are engaging and really make you care about the main characters and dislike the evil ones. You forget they’re constructs like karma, fate, wrath, and mythical beings like Cupid and Santa. It’s really fun to listen to how it all comes together.

The narrator had moments where she really shines with some of the characters like the office manager, Cupid, and Lady Luck, but for the main characters her style is stilted. She breaks lines in awkward places. Her style is very Shatner-esque. It makes some of the dialogue fall flat and some of the interactions/humorous moments don’t land because of it.

The story is enough to get through it and it was worth the credit to get me through my commutes.

Horrible performance and bratty characters.

It was a real struggle to finish. The characters were brats and childish and just annoying to listen to. The performance was mechanical and because the characters were such jerks to each other there was a lot of monotone yelling dialogue. Don't waste your money or credit on this.

Great concept...

This story really has so much potential. I love the concept and even the plot, I only wish it was written better. The author’s writing style is just not my cup of tea. For example, she re uses descriptive pronouns, sometimes in the same or adjacent sentences. The way she writes the conversations between her characters is incredibly frustrating. It seems that they can’t and don’t communicate at all but just assume and throw insults. Sometimes the verbal dialogue doesn’t even make sense and if it wasn’t for the predictable way they interact the reader would not be able to even follow what is supposed to be happening. Their relationship is nothing but tension and turmoil, exhausting for me and yet supposedly they have this great love. I can think of only one or two moments of tenderness in the whole series! Now I like your badass chick as much as the next girl, but there should be a balance. Imagine this story in the hands of JK Rowling or Stephanie Meyer, it would be fantastic!

As to the narrator, she was so difficult for me to handle. She sounds like a mix between a bratty teenager and a valley girl. She reads the voices so aggressively and her character voices are awful. Even if you only listen to the way she reads the chapter titles she sounds either bored or pissed off. My guess is she added a lot to the angry feeling of the story. In addition to this, the recording was not edited well. It repeats sentences, and at one point she stops and clears her throat! That should have been edited out!

To summarize, it was a great concept and story. If you are just looking for a brainless fix of badassery and stunted conversations, and if you don’t mind the voice of a whinny, nasally, angry narrator, this book is perfect for you.

Bad

Generally speaking a Mary Sue has some redeeming qualities. This one has none. The secondary characters have none. There is no depth to characterization or growth. The story is rape-y and believes the protagonist is infinitely more interesting, useful, capable, and assertive than she is.
The narrator isn't horrible but isn't good either.
The stories seem marketed as urban fantasy but that is a stretch. It's more like an abusive office relationship with a protagonist who doesn't think she has a problem.
The prequel tries to paint the love interest as worthwhile and that is just a lame attempt to undercut all the evidence.
