Description

Five rituals to control Chaos. That’s all it takes.

Now that Harley knows her enemy’s grand plan - to become a godlike Child of Chaos and punish those deemed “unworthy” - she’s got to figure out what the heck to do about it. Many of the missing magicals are still out there, and Katherine has vowed to kill everyone Harley cares about and make her watch.

So that’s fun.

Just when it seems like things can’t get much worse, one of the most precious monsters of the Bestiary escapes, and Harley is sure that Katherine has her dirty hands involved. But that crazy witch had better be ready because Harley has finally figured out a way to unleash her powers - although the cost might not be worth it.

Astrid, a human living amongst magicals, is just as determined to thwart Katherine’s schemes. At the same time, her budding romance with the Coven’s trademark bad boy has earned her father’s disapproval, and it seems like betrayal is lurking around the corner....

I think I'm done.

I think I'm done with this series. The premise is good; I feel connected to the characters and I like how it feels as though the typical magic and typical superpowers are combined; I think that's very unique. However, it feels like the story is just not fully developed: the plot is predictable and the foreshadowing is so blatant, it's making it hard for me to want to continue. I think the narrator does a very good job, but feels as though the author split this story into waaay to many installments for the sake of profitability and I'm having a hard time wanting to spend more money on this series.

slow moving and poor character growth

the concept of the book is good. but there is 0 character growth outside "blooming love interest". characters keep making the same types of errors and choices from book to book. honestly, it's getting old. I'll stick with it because the plot is interesting. but I've stopped feeling sympathy or compassion for the characters. it's a little like watching to many nic cage movies. because there's no growth in the characters, you just kind of feel like you're on replay every time a new situation comes up.

Too Slow, Too Juvenile, Poorly Narrated but I’m still reading all of them?

Ok - so I have to give credit where it’s due and admit to the fact that despite my continuously low star rating, I have listened through 4 books and will likely finish the series.

So acknowledging the achievement in that, I will lay out my concerns.

(1) Why does the author insist on telling us things we literally just heard ten minutes ago? You don’t need to almost verbatim repeat the same points. Especially when each character already knows too and you’re not explaining their epiphanies to us.

(2) The narrator. I love how she does Harley and Alton. But everyone else, especially the accent work, is very sloppy, inconsistent and just plain wrong at times. I could not have done this better if my life depended on it. And I’m sure voicing this many characters is a challenging if not down right impossible job. But there are so many talented people putting out narrations on audible - maybe they would have been better suited to the challenge. I cannot differentiate between Astrid and Harley, the accents dip in and out for Tatiana and for others. I don’t know. It’s just kind of shotty work where another voice actor might have lent atmosphere to a somewhat lacking bit of writing.

(3) Which brings me to my last point. I’ve read books about 16 year olds that had more depth and development than this book about a supposed 19 year old. Granted, this does feel age appropriate where those books have seemed reaching for what a 16 year old might be like, but I was surprised at how juvenile the characters are at times, especially Harley.

love this series

it's well written and performed beautifully. I love that it is in our world just like a Harry Potter book but, with all kinds of magicals. There is adventure, love, danger and magic. Just my kind of book and it flows so easily!

Its okay

These books are repetitive. It's the same thing over and over. Wade and Harley still haven't made any moves. And the group continuously fails. I have tried to give it a chance but I can't listen anymore. After 4 books I feel like more should be happening. That aside the narrator is amazing.

Too short

For 1 credo there should be 2 of these books. The narrator is wonderful.and does an amazing job with the different characters. Took 5 books to make it to the fist kiss? There are 9 books? That’s a lot of credits and not sore the series is worth it.

Getting Better

I was really starting to think I had wasted all my credits. I like the storyline but am hating the main character, Harley. I had purchased a bunch from the series and was holding out hope that they would get better. by the 3rd book I was so annoyed with Harley's character that I was about to give up. However, in the 4th book, she isn't nearly as bad. Don't get me wrong, she is still super annoying but I am at the point where I want to know what happens next. This is leading me to believe that maybe her character will grow up a bit and not make me wish I hadn't wasted my credits. Most of the other characters are great. I just wish she didn't rub me the wrong way so much, being that this series is all about her.

Harry Potter it isn't!

Way too American, way too creationistic!
It's an insult to compare this series to Harry Potter. "United covens of America"/ "Father of the free magicals"? And a stupid "heroine" who cannot see what's right in front of her.
Plus those "chaos rules" ideas are way too creationistic!!!!!
