    Description

    Piper Griffiths wants one thing in life: To become a Consul, a keeper of the peace between humans and daemons. There are precisely three obstacles in her way.

    The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to get Piper into bed and otherwise annoy the crap out of her.

    The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive - and scary. Did she mention scary?

    The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon.

    And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes

    .Now she's on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She's dead on her own, but there's no one she can trust - no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons...see problems one and two.

    One of my new fave series

    I'm leaving this review on all of the books from this series, but no real spoilers here.

    I can say that I'm terribly sad that I'm almost done with the 5th book in this series (even if only 3 are on audible), I am worried that I won't be able to find another series that I love quite like this one, not for awhile. But in another way I'm a little bit glad that I am almost done because I can get back to my life afterward!

    I read a ton of books. I don't always leave reviews, but I had to leave one for this series because it kept me going and going and going. I never wanted to put it down. I had to force myself to do so. And when I found that the last two books were not on audible I almost cried, not kidding. The narrator, while not my favorite at first, ended up fantastic.

    The plot was awesome. Slight spoiler here: the love story is terrific. There wasn't much of the icky-sweet, romantic-puke, "our love is the strongest love that ever existed" crap that I see in other series that always makes me go "Really? C'mon now." This one was so much more realistic.

    I like that the characters are strong but faulted. I love how the friendship between the 3 grows so strong. I wish Piper would say "Thank you" once in awhile, but I'll get over it. I like how the twists happen, when you think one thing might happen and then, bam, another thing happens.

    This series had me gripped from *literally* (I'm using that with it's intended meaning), the first chapter of the first book. That is my favorite type of book, the kind that just grip you and won't let you go. I haven't had that happen to me for a long time and it was such a pleasant surprise, even if it did keep my up until 3 in the morning a few times. These are going on my faves shelf because...well...they are.

    Dear Annette Marie, more please? Pretty please?

    Got past the cover art to enjoy the book

    I avoided this series for awhile because I didn't like the illustrations on the covers. It's strange how much that first impression affects my book selections, but I'm glad I finally gave it a try.

    I really enjoyed the three main characters and the relationships they built. The main girl was annoying at times (overreacted to several situations in ways that hurt one of the other characters), but I liked that she made up for her lack of magical abilities with fighting skills and determination. The two guys pulled me in, both with their looks and personalities. You slowly get to know them throughout the book, and there isn't an instant love connection for no reason, but there is attraction which will probably lead to a love triangle.

    The book had a lot of action, and there was a new challenge for the characters around every corner. The ending isn't a cliff hanger, but there are lots of things left untold that make me want to continue with the rest of the series right away. Hope Audible publishes the whole series soon!

    I know there are a lot of comments about the narrator already, but I'll add my opinion. She did a reasonable job. The things that bothered me are how young/immature she sounds (but I know the main character is young too), and many times she shouted or used a tone of voice that just didn't make sense in the context. Yes, she sounds a bit congested, but I got used to that. Overall, it was ok and didn't ruin the book.

    Narrator needs a tissue

    Seriously, is it the mix? Or is it the narrator. It sounds like she needed a tissue the whole time, and was highly distracting. Story was good. Character is a little immature but she is young so I guess thats okay.

    Had a hard time finishing the book.

    The story wasn't bad, but I was not a fan of the female lead. She was suppose to be in training to be a Consul , yet she reacts to every conflict with emotion, drama and makes one stupid choice after another. An immature teenager who is suppose to be a leader, follows everyone around and when she asserts herself, it is always disastrous. After awhile it became too much.

    I ended up skipping to the end to see what happened. I will not be continuing with the series.

    Pass the narrator atissue

    The story was good, but OMG, the nasally tone of the narrator was just too much. I kept wanting to tell her to blow your nose. She sounded stuffy... So I had to stop listing to the book....

    I just hope the producers and editors read these reviews, and pay better attention on details that ultimately ruins an audiobok... What a waste!!!! Once again, a good story botched by a bad narrator and production company.

    The narrator needs help!

    I've never written a review before, but I feel I must. The story was fantastic. I loved the book. The narrator? Oh my goodness. First, the good: she has a nice tone, she speaks well and has decent acting skills. The bad: . She sounds like she has a cold for the entire book, and for about 25% of the book sounds as if she's actually plugging her nose. My biggest pet peeve throughout the entire book that was INCREDIBLY distracting is that she doesn't pronounce L's that are preceded by O's. Example: shoulder shoulder very obviously has a L in the middle of it but she pronounces it SHOW-DER. Hold? Pronounced HOAD. Is this a dialect thing? I don't know, but PLEASE SOMEONE! Give her some tips!! She could be very good with some coaching, but then again so could I. It is so bad and so distracting that I'm really debating whether or not to get the second book. I did really enjoy the the story itself, but her narration is so distracting to me I'm not sure if I'm going to purchase book two.
    My big question is: why did no one notice this in the proofing/editing/whatever they do with audio books??

    Can someone give the narrator a cold medicine?

    The series itself has potential. Since the main character seems to be a teenager, I take she is portrayed as annoying as she is because she is a teenager in the first book of a series. I mean, one can hope she has to grow and her powers will make her a better person, right? Now, the narrator is another story. What is wrong with her very nasal voice? Was she sick? Does she have a cold? It was painful!

    this narrator tho

    The story is pretty good and I'm not the biggest fan of young adult books. This narrator gets annoying at times and makes the main character sound really whiney.

    HORRIBLE narrator!! Made me return the book

    I have a rule. Give the narrator one hour so they can relax into their role. Ittook everything in me to stick to that with this book, because within that one hour, I cringed over a dozen times and paused it twice. It wasn't the writing... that actually was already interesting to me. It was the narrator. She is dreadful. She slips into this nasally tone frequently, often mid-sentence that makes it sound like the characters are being strangled. Needless to say, I returned this book... and I never return books. I've heard so many good things about this series, so I'll pick up a paperback copy instead. Do not waste your time on this!

    Story ist gut

    aber es dauerte eine ganze Weile, bis ich mich an die Sprecherin gewöhnt hatte. Sie spricht, als hätte sie eine verstopfte Nase, was ich als sehr störend empfunden habe, und teilweise auch recht monoton. Ich finde die Story zwar echt gut, bin aber nich am überlegen, ob ich mir den 2. Teil ebenfalls als Hörbuch hole, oder doch lieber lese.

    OMG diese Stimme

    Ich war wirklich gespannt auf das Hörbuch. Die Geschichte scheint interessant zu sein und war definitv etwas für mich. Ich hab zwar gelesen, dass die Sprecherin nicht so toll sein soll aber trotzdem hat dieses Hörbuch so tolle Bewertungen und kann nicht so schlecht sein. Dachte ich.
    Das Hörbuch hat angefangen und ich habe sofort verstanden, was die anderen Hörer meinten.
    Oh Gott... ich wollte so gerne durchhalten.
    Leute, ich hab es wirklich versucht. aber diese STIMME. die Sprecherin hat so eine nasale Stimme. Zwischendurch wurde es besser und ich konnte mich auf die Geschichte konzentrieren. Doch wenn man gerade aufatment und denk, dass es schon irgendwie geht..BÄM. Die Sprecherin kriegt solch extreme Grippe Anfälle. Ich meine die Art von Erkältung oder Grippe, wo die Nase sowas von zu ist, dass man nur noch durch den Mund atmen kann. Schrecklich. Ich meine wie kann so jemand Sprecherin werden? WIE? Nach 1 Std. konnte ich mich nicht mehr weiter quälen und habe das hörbuch abgebrochen. Das was ich von der Geschichte mitbekommen habe scheint aber ganz ok zu sein.

    Sprecherin nicht erträglich

    Die Geschichte ist Ok, aber dadurch das die Sprecherin die ganze Zeit so liest als ob sie extrem erkältet ist, ist es sehr anstrengend die Geschichte komplett zu hören.

    Nice YA fantasy novel

    I love the Spellbound and demonized books by Annette Marie and was curious about her other books. This one was good but not so good as the others. Maybe the story takes a but longer to catch me in the same way. I will definitely listen to the second book.
    My main problem is with the main female character. I don't like her very much. She is emotional weak and seems not very intelligent. I can't identify with her and most of her decisions. I hope she will develop into someone who isn't so harthearted and selfish and starts thinking a bit more about others and their feelings and not just how their actions effect her and her feelings.

    exciting story

    all in all narrator is good and fits the story. probably recording problems in between.
