Entertaining Urban Fantasy

Her mother lives in a mobile home park on the edge of town, her father was a lesser demon of Hell and occasional incubus. Daisy works as a part time file clerk at the local police office and as the liaison between the mundane world and the goddess Hel who is the local supernatural in charge. A young college student is found drowned and all of the signs indicate that this is not an ordinary accidental drowning.

Not as dark and angsty as some of her high fantasy novels, this is still an entertaining read. I like Daisy's relationship with her best friend, Jen, and how she was willing to try to repair it after she causes a breach. She also has a good relationship with her mother and her old baby sitter. Daisy is not just a smart-assed hellspawn-- although she does have a tail.

i noticed that someone objected to what they thought was Johanna Parker's southern accent. I have a fair ear for accents and I didn't think she was using an obvious southern overlay. After all a midwestern accent is frequently considered received pronunciation in the US.

Pretty enjoyable listen.

Fun Urban Fantasy

I am a fan of the author - and this is a huge departure from her other books. I had no problem with the narration (some disliked her accent). I found the pronunciation for some words to be strange (which can be jarring) and she does talk too fast at times, but it did not distract too much from the great story. I cannot wait for the next book! If you enjoy urban fantasy (Patricia Briggs, Kim Harrison, etc) then you will enjoy this one:)
