Publisher's Summary

Most humans have no idea that a dark and deadly underworld, filled with magic and monsters, exists. They wander through life blissfully ignorant of the supernatural world around them. Nora Jacobs is different. Nora knows exactly what kinds of hellish creatures haunt the streets of Detroit.

Thanks to a unique set of psychic abilities, Nora has managed to steer clear of the underworld most of her life. But all that changes the night the most powerful vampire in the city discovers her gifts and decides to use her as a tool to find one of his missing clan members.

As if that's not bad enough, Nora believes she's cursed. All her life, people, especially men, have been drawn to her - some to the point of obsession and violence. Underworlders, it seems, are not immune to this curse, and now she's caught the attention of some of the most dangerous monsters in the city. Neck deep in an investigation only she can solve, Nora quickly makes as many new allies as she does enemies. Her biggest problem is staying alive long enough to decide which is which.

Contains mature themes.

Bad narrator

This story has a lot of potential but I can’t get past the extremely irritating narrator. She is very monotone with no real difference between the characters, but the worst part is that she sounds extremely nasally/whiny and it’s driving me crazy. I ended up returning the book and I am going to try reading them instead.

Pleasantly Surprised

I go through a lot of fantasy books a month, so I tend to try many different authors. I was pleasantly surprised by this story. It is shorter than I prefer by was entertaining the entire time. The characters and plot were built quickly so the beginning didn’t drag. The narrating is well done, no annoying quarks to her voice. I am looking forward to more from this series and author.

GOOD. INTERESTING STORYLINE.

Good plot. The protagonist have problems but luckily she met up with some allies/friends to support her. Fast paced action from the start. The storyline is good and leave room for further development. Hollie Jackson's performance/narration is perfect. She brings out the different characters well and her male voices are acceptable. The first book in this series turned out very well. Worth a credit. I will continue with book 2.

didn’t bother to finish it

I agree that the cast of characters and personalities are excellent and the story premise well designed but the poor logic used to explain the heroines’ actions devalued the book just when it should have become most important. Also the monologues for everyone internally dialogued by the mind reading heroine are shallow and underdeveloped. I honestly believe this author can get there, and I will keep an eye on her but this book didn’t stand up to the reviews it’s been getting. The narrator’s tone indicates she was just as bored as I was and the sing song pattern annoyed the eardrums. OTOH I did move on to the second book in the series and found it improved in most of the areas that this one was lacking in.

Good story but the men turned to boys

I liked the book until the end, when the exhausted heroine had to boost the men’s attitudes. It began to feel like a reverse harem book and made the “men” seem like boys that needed a mother figure.

We need more Kate Daniels and less Nora’s...

Seriously the most dumb thing I’ve ever read/listened to. I’m so tired of authors making the lead women portrayed as dumb, gullible, beautiful little wall flowers that fall into trouble only to be saved by her one true love. These Cinderella stories are getting old. Fast. Nora, who all guys fall so in love with her bordering on obsession, is a child. She’s weak and picks unnecessary fights at every turn but men seam to find this attractive and can’t get enough of her. Come on. A women can be sweet, smart mouthed, and kick ass all at once. They don’t have to be helpless all the damn time! This seems to be a theme with a lot of women authors. I find stories written by men have the women be more independent, which is just sad. And the fact that this book/series is getting so many 5 star reviews says something about what the audience wants, which is why so many authors are making books with this story line. It’s sad and disgusting IMHO. I’ve also been noticing an irritating pattern where weak women are saved by 5 guys aka the despicable “Reverse Harem” series. The fact that authors AND audiences alike keep portraying women/teens to be weak minded, gullible, angsts-y, says something about the society we live in today.like I said in my title... Audible needs more Kate Daniels and less Nora’s in the market.

Interesting Story

Absolutely enjoyed this book. The main character has a pretty sad backstory... but for the most part, the actual plot was fairly lighthearted and a fun listen. I can’t wait for the second audiobook and the third book!

lead Character Whines to Much.

lead Character whined throughout the book about
how she doesn't take charity and how she doesn't date. It was nauseating to the point that I put the book down 3 times and walked away.

NO!

I didn't finish this book. The characters are annoying. Although the plot might be passable, I really don't care about the characters. Hollie Jackson did okay with the narration.
