I found this story slow. And didn’t really like the narrator. Perhaps it was made for a younger audience. It took me multiple tries to get through it. I wouldn’t recommend it as a purchase.

Intresting idea, but fell short for me

I like the idea of this. But i think the writing and the narration was weak. I’ve had much better audio book in this same genera. Much better. I rolled my eyes and cringed a lot. I’m surprised this is a series, not just the one book. I would not pick up more in this series.

Superb story and narration!!!

I can't praise this audiobook enough!!! The story is complex and intriguing, with great strong characters and plenty of room to grow. I can't wait to see where this story line goes after this. The writing was excellent! This was my first time with this author and since listening to this audiobook, I have started devouring the author's other works. I'm now in the middle of the Kate Daniels series. It's interesting to read that series when knowing this Hugh d'Ambray first. I've also stared the Innkeeper series, and it's also fun to read. This is a great author!

The narration. Wow. I was browsing Audible, trying to branch out beyond my favorite author who's narrator is excellent. I listened to a couple other books, highly rated, but ended up returning them because of the narration. They were overly dramatic or flat and weak. I couldn't get through them or would never recommend them. So i tried the sample clip of this book. I was hooked! Steve West was masterful! I absolutely enjoyed every second of listening to this! He's now my favorite narrator and anything else he does goes into my 'try this one!' list. I have listened to this audiobook multiple times in 1 month, and with my husband who is now a devoted fan now too. I've listened to this author's other narrator, and Steve West is far superior! His voices are distinct, sarcasm drips, and he brings so much depth to conversations between characters then just the written words. He's amazing to listen to!

I loved this book! I can't wait for more of this series, the author, and the narrator! 5 stars all round and I recommend it to everyone!

Fun, but not the author’s best work

Having read all this author’s Jane Jameson series and Half Moon Hallow series, i find this is the weakest story i’ve read so far, by Molly Harper. It doesn’t have the depth of the other works. It has interesting characters, plenty of potential, and is fun to listen too though. I would like more stories from Mystic Bayou. This one just seemed light and a bit quick.

If you like this story and are new to Molly Harper, you will really get your money’s worth if check out her other series.

I actually read this story before listening to it on Audible. I find i really enjoy listening to a book. Tone and emotion in the voice really help the humour and in this author’s writing, wit, come across. I have enjoyed all of Molly Harper’s Half Moon Hallow books, and Amanda Ronconi’s narration of said books. Please excuse me while i go purchase the next one in the series. :). And if you ever loved the Buffy the Vampire Slayer tv series, i think you’d really like this series. Its clever and funny. I’ve even got my Husband reading it.

A fun smart read

I found this a lot of fun to listen to. It was funny and clever. I laughed out loud several times. Ironically once in a library. I’ll definitely be picking up the other titles in the series.
