I was a deer Caught in the Headlights!
The second installment of this wondrful series cranks it up to 11 on the action scale, and places poor Jane right in the danger zone. The tone, while a little darker than the first book is still funny and irreverant and full of puns and wiseacre remarks. This time, Jane might just be over her head in trouble, so deep in fact that she may not be a ble to hoof her way out of it in time. There is the old crew from last time, as well as a newbie named Robyn. We get to see Jane's world through her eyes in a way, which plays nicely so that we get some idea of the deeper stuff happening.
Jane is finally the Shaman she was worried she could never be, and after a terrible discovery has her hands full trying to find a baby killer. The scooby gang reunites and brings their all to find the fiend responsible for the atrocity. Problems arise when a wizard makes an appearance, and Jane has to worry about whether or not the family business should get sold or not, and if you remember she's just a poor girl from a poor family and there isn't anyone gonna spare her from this monstrosity. She is low in her cash flow, so this is a dire predicament to deal with while everything else is happeneing. Can she solve the mystery, save her family business, get her boyfriend's brother out of her hair, and stop the cult leading wizard? I can't say, but I'm just gonna tell you that the solutions to these problems are fun to listen to.
Speaking of listening, I will again praise Arielle DeLisle. She is a joy to listen to, and she has some serious story telling chops. Her pleasant tones really sell Jane, you get to see her in a way that the printed page simply cannot provide. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Chock full of deer puns, this new installment in the Bright Falls series did not disappoint. Comedy, romance, and a supernatural mystery all rolled into one. I liked the narrator a lot. Her voice is very versatile, and highly entertaining. Well done!
