A quick and easy read.

Any additional comments?

My actual rating is 3.5 but we don't have half stars here so I'll round it up to 4.

This was a good read though at times a little confusing. I'm going to list my likes and dislikes for this review so let's do the negative first.

What I Disliked:

There are many many characters and some that I still have no idea why they were part of the story, though maybe it will be revealed in future books.

The world building was lacking a little aswell. It had the potential to be explosive but it fell flat.

There wasn't much back story where Lillim is concerned. She was always on about being reincarnated and people knew her from her last life, but who was she? Why was she reincarnated etc? Not enough detail.

What I liked:

Lillim was a solid character. She was easily likable and you can't help but root for her.

The plot was really fast paced. There is plenty of action and adventure that you fly through the book and it's an enjoyable read.

There is a lot to this book which you know will slowly unravel over the series so it keeps your attention.

It has Dragons!! Admittedly not much to do with them, but still Dragons!!

In all an engaging if some what confusing read. Even though I got lost sometimes, it held my attention to the end and I liked the idea of the book enough to continue on with the series.

Rebecca Roberts did a good job reading the book. Even with the amount of characters, I knew when she voiced a new one. I will definitely check out more read by her.

*I received this for review from AudioBookBlast. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

Kill it with magic

What was one of the most memorable moments of Kill It with Magic?

Story is about a girl who is running away from her past life. She’s tired of everybody comparing her to the girl she used to be—a girl who selflessly ended her own life to save many others. But when her ex-boyfriend contacts Lillim for help, she has no choice but to be involved in the life that she had been so desperately trying to get away from. Lillim is thrust into a mystery and desperately tries to stop a dragon from taking over. In the process she meets several mysterious characters.

Overall, A Fun Listen

What made the experience of listening to Kill It with Magic the most enjoyable?

The reading and presentation of the characters and the world felt natural. I didn't find myself questioning the story or the setting.

What other book might you compare Kill It with Magic to and why?

Not sure? The tone was light with enough excitement to keep me reading. I find that a rare combination.

What does Rebecca Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love Rebecca's voice. I could listen to her read tax codes and still give a standing ovation.

Truly entertaining! Already shared with 14 y/o gd

fast paced and well plotted and detailed. Characterizatons are clear, dialog fun. My only caveat is that the narrator sounded bored, not engaged. Have to confess to hunting down the ebook about a third of the way through. That is so not normal for me. Lilly was OK with it, and we both want to go to the rest of the series ASAP!

Great imagination

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Less back and forth between her apartment and the other world. It was confusing for me.

If you’ve listened to books by J. A. Cipriano before, how does this one compare?

N/A

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes. The narrator did a good job.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No, unless I was taking one of my grandchildren to see it. It's not the type of movie I would normally choose.

Any additional comments?

I read this book to give a review. That being said, you should know I'm not a huge fan of fantasy novels. So, in fairness to the author I just wanted to let you all know that, in case my review is reflected in that.

The author: J.A. Cipriano definitely has an eye for image. I was impressed with his choice of descriptions for his characters.

The story: The story started out strong and caught my attention quickly. However, it went down from there as I got deeper into the story. I listened to the audio version and often found myself confused by what was going on and would have to rewind the tape. I felt the Jilliam's quest was nearly the same scene only different monster with a few variations. Overall, though, I like the story.

Recommend: I would definitely recommend this story to teenagers who were into vampires, werewolves, dragons...etc. It's a good story but you have to pay attention or you will get lost on your journey.
