Not a great choice if you like books that make you think or have you guessing the whole time. Many times throughout the book, I found myself checking the amount of time remaining. Which I never do. It just seemed drawn out and not even interesting. I would not recommend this book if you are looking for something with twists and suspense.

This is my first Brennan book. I would have enjoyed the printed version better due to the narration by Fass. Her portrayal of male characters is actually better than her female characters at many times. She adds too much inflection in her female voices causing their emotion to sound fake and overly dramatic. Both Lucy and Max's characters are strong lead females not the annoying bimbos they are made to sound like. I will not listen to another book narrated by Fass. She is more suitable for humorous, light hearted romance novels than mystery thrillers.
I will try another book by Brennan. The plot held my interest despite the poor performance. Shattered is probably a good introduction to someone not familiar with Lucy or Maxine. The plot is long and the characters and back-stories are well explained so it doesn't matter if it's your first book or not. There is some repetition of story content should have been paired down. After reviewing other books in the series I see a lot of background in Shattered came from other books, I'm sure I would have found the repetition annoying (a personal pet peeve).
Bottom line, a pretty good plot and a mindless listen if you're not picky about the narration. However, If you're like me and strongly prefer highly skilled narrators then you might find this Audible annoying and better save your credit for something else.
