Summary

Half-fae Sam Gollet is no stranger to solitary confinement - being a half-fae working as a vampire enforcer will do that to you. She is also accustomed to solving the crimes within the supernatural community inside the Illinois Mystical Reservation when the feds refuse to lift a finger. 

After being released from Solitary, she finds herself quickly embroiled in the mysterious deaths of leading members of the fae community. Despite having been ostracized by the fae community, Sam agrees to solve the murders at the risk of her own safety. 

As the body count rises, she'll be forced to show her allegiance to the fae and prove that she's not in league with Heywood’s vampire gang, all the while trying to rebuild her crumbling friendships, avoid rejection from her family, and dissuade the unwanted attentions of a mage living outside the reservation. It seems like no matter what she does, all they can see is her allegiance to the vampires, leaving her wondering if she is stuck with misguided allies.

Amazing heroine

I received this book at my request for free but the review is of my own. Sam is back dealing with jolted friends, an upset family, trying to solve cases, and working for a vampire she hates. Life is still not simple for her as she’s trying to figure out who are suddenly killing the fae and how to get away from the vampire she works for. Another awesome tale of a very believable character.

A half-Fae allied with vamps?! Oh my!!!!

It's hard to believe that this book would be better than the first one but it is all that and then some!!!! I love this series!!!!

Book one ended with Sam, the half-Fae and the main character, forced to work with the vampires, a sworn enemy of the Fae. Book two has that alliance in full swing with all of the icky that comes with it. Sam loses her friends, her family, and slivers of her soul in the process. This book was as compelling as it was intense. I felt for Sam as each person in her world showed their true selves. It was heartbreaking.

The narrator was exceptional. There were so many characters and different beings and their portrayals were extremely well-done. This listen is probably not considered an action thriller but in every sense of those words, that's how it felt. That is attributable to the insanely good narration.

I took a sneak peek and to my utter joy, see that there are a few more books on the horizon. I can't wait.

Misguided Allies

A great continuation of The Void Series. Sam is a void, and has been alienated by almost everyone she knows. The only place she can turn is to the vampires, but when it looks like they may be responsible for multiple murders of fae, Sam needs to figure out what is going on...

Charissa Dufour has written an action packed story with lots of twists. I couldn’t put it down.

Janelle Tedesco is the perfect narrator for this story, and series. She flawlessly goes back and forth between characters and performs with impeccable timing and emotion.

Fantastic

The series just gets better with each book. Love the depth of the characters and the way the world shines through as a character itself. There is a little of everything in this book and the twists and turns were great. Once again Janelle did a superb job performing. I was given a free copy of this audio in return for an unbiased review.

Misguided Allies

Charissa has done it again in the Void series and I couldn’t be happier. This book has everything from betrayal to understanding and definitely keeps you wanting more. Once again Sam is pulled into some seriously dangerous situations and yet she is able to pull herself to the top finding some surprising allies along the way. I can’t wait to see what comes next!

Very enjoyable

I was given a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

This book was a very enjoyable listen. Charissa Dufour took what I enjoyed about the first book in the series and expanded on it. The world building was strong and I really was able to grasp all the things she was laying out. Dialogue was good, motivations were strong, and characters were clear. The narrator was excellent! Looking forward to book 3.

Different!

Anyone who knows me, knows I love Urban Fantasy and Dystopia. This series is an interesting blend of both. It's also a cautionary tale, told from the pov of the oppressed people. The story is so engrossing I got annoyed every time someone interrupted me. Tedesco is one of my favorite female voice actors, and the reason I started this series, despite the short length of the first book. Her voice transitions so smoothly between characters, it feels like there is a full cast. Anyway, for what it's worth, I really love this world, and I can't wait to see what comes next!
