This was not as good as some of her other novels. Also with the narrator being female and there being so many male characters the reading of it seemed a little off. I may have enjoyed reading it more than listening to it.

I have long disliked the females of this series and have zero idea why the men adore them. What keeps me coming back is the men; sexy, dark, interesting, dangerous. My new fave is Seth...unfortunately Jane who asked him to help her keeps telling him to get lost. I wanted to smack her and tell her, "Lady, never heard of gratitude?"
Jane is rude and takes completely after her adopted mother Eve, who continues to put the people she says means "everything" to her, in danger!
Iris--woman CAN be strong and not be bad mannered. They can also possess common sense. Really.

I wasn't sure if this was a comedy at first. It made me laugh out loud at some parts. The fiesty red haired, emerald eyed heroine, the dark and brooding anti-hero's (all secretly in love with the heroine and all Scottish), the bizzare back story, mixed with a few supernatural powers and a bit of religious theme thrown in for good luck. Clich?s galore.
The narration was fine apart from the Scottish accents. It seems all Scots have an upward inflection at the end of everything they say which turns everything into a question. This got very irritating. The lady did a very passable English accent until she said 'tomAto' rather than 'tomato', which is a basic error.
I only got as far as the first download, by which time the comedic value had worn off and, quite frankly, I didn't care if they all got caught and the whole lot of them came to a grizzly end. It would have been a kindness.
Maybe if you were reading this the story wouldn't have seemed so silly and the characters so annoying, but listening to it was not a pleasure, more of a chore.
