When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing - not even a smear of blood - to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

The narration for this story was iffy. Mae Whitman definitely added a certain excitement to the experience, but I had trouble distinguishing the male voices (aside from Simon’s) from each other. If more than one was in the scene, it was a sometimes difficult to know which one was talking.

The actual story was okay. It was pretty easy to distinguish the plot from the individual book vs throughout the series. However, I feel that it needed a bit more development, along with the characters (however, both might be done throughout the remainder of the series).

Overall, a decent start to the series, improved slightly by the narration. Not a personal favourite, but I was definitely intrigued to find out what happens next.

In the wake of tragedy, neither Lazlo nor Sarai are who they were before. One a god, the other a ghost, they struggle to grasp the new boundaries of their selves as dark-minded Minya holds them hostage, intent on vengeance against Weep. Lazlo faces an unthinkable choice - save the woman he loves, or everyone else? - while Sarai feels more helpless than ever. But is she? Sometimes, only the direst need can teach us our own depths, and Sarai, the muse of nightmares, has not yet discovered what she's capable of.

This probably won’t be helpful as a review, but I have no words to describe how wonderful and beautiful this book was. At first I thought the writing style was over the top, but as the story went on it made more sense. I usually prefer a full cast (I don’t have a problem with single narrators, but it can often be a better experience with more people), but I think Steve West did a pretty darn fantastic job! I’m so happy I read this, but feel very hollow now that it’s over.

A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

I love A Christmas Carol! I got a late start on it this year, and decided to read the audiobook, and I’m glad I did! Tim Curry was a great narrator, although there were a few times I had trouble telling the difference between characters. The performance is really a 4.5 out of 5 stars. Great story, I would definitely listen to it again!
