Where does Killing Rocks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
eight on a scale of one to ten.
What did you like best about this story?
Charlie, Gally, . I love the world that he has built. I love the alternative mythology.
What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?
She is very good at the voices. Although the Mafia guys are a little too cartoony for me...
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When she shot Charlies
Any additional comments?
I do not understand why some reviews say that this book was somehow out of kilter from the first two. Parallel universe - Check! Evil Sorcerer gunning for Jace - Check! Comic book elements - check! Fighting bad guys - Check! I really enjoyed it and it filled in some blanks. I am not sure how the people who skipped three and didn't feel that they missed anything anything..KNOW that they didn't miss anything...after all...they skipped the book...I just finished four and I think four was off track. After three I couldn't wait until I could get my hands on four. After four I am not sure I want to listen to five. . Charlie wasn't there for most of the book...but that was vital to the storyline and made for some nice suspense. One the other hand - I really didn't like four and thought it was off base. No evil sorcerers. No comic books. No alternative universe travel...
As a side note. I tend to enjoy books with four elements. 1. bad guys/mystery to solve. 2. strong female character 3.Paranormal elements. 4.. Romantic relationship of the main character large focus.
I prefer series that focus on one character and am willing to overlook lack of one of those elements above if the rest are strong enough.
This book is NOT a romance book by any stretch of the imagination. Unless the series has a drastic shift the only "Romance" involves Jace having crushes on various men around her and every once in a while sleeping with one and then wondering if she should have a relationship with them.
The only books with time travel that I have ever enjoyed have been Lynn Kurland books and Diana Gabaldon books. As a general rule I HATE time travel/parallel universe stories.
My favorite books that have similarities to these books are the CE Murphy, Jeanine Frost, Carrie Vaughn, Patricia Briggs books.
Because of the lack of a good romantic element so far I would personally not rank this book as high as these. But there are more books..so I am hopeful....
