A solid start.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. This is such an enjoyable read and a great introduction to the Ivy Granger series.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was sufficiently fast paced to keep me hooked and it really picked up the pace towards the end.


What about Traci Odom’s performance did you like?

Yes. She is such an awesome Ivy and knows how to grab the readers.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Ivy is so snarky that it's impossible not to snicker during the book, so yes, I had a good few laugh out loud moments.


Any additional comments?

Shadow sight introduces us to the snarky and kick ass heroine Ivy Granger. When she touches an object she can "read" that object. She doesn't know why or how she has the gift but she learns to deal with it. She opens her own Detective Agency and has the name to investigate the weird.
Ivy is such an awesome character and I loved her wit and sass. I can't wait to read more in this awesome world and look forward to the next book.

Monsters Everywhere!

This was fun listen. Ivy is a psychic detective with second sight. She see's the monsters for who they are and can't touch anything without seeing its past. She lives in Harboursmouth where plenty of creatures mingle in the streets.

When a demon walks into her and best friend Jinx detective agency her life gets even crazier. He's been hired by a type of Fae when their king disappears. They want her to find an item of his. In her search she gets distracted and doesn't spend a lot of time looking for it instead she spends more time warning other supernaturals and gaining their assistance.

It was another type of Fae who kidnapped the other's king and they are ruthless and ready to attack Harboursmouth. This is a fun book.

It started a little slow but picked up after the first few chapters. Where I kept getting lost was her in depth descriptions of all the various types of Fae and other monsters. I really just needed to know about the ones directly involved with the story not every one she saw and it's history etc. I adore the author's imagination but trying to keep track of them all was a brain blast that detracted from the actual story. Sometimes less is better.

I enjoyed listening to the narrator and think she was a good fit for the story.

I recieved this book free through Audiobook Boom.
