I thought the premise of a fay genetic creature bent on vengeance interesting.For the first chapter it held together. It was downhill after that. Just a mixed up jumble of myths, stories, and stereotypes. Our heroine steals away from Fay, then holes up in a series of motels, learns English from TV, though she cannot read or write, knows a lot but somehow does not know what a fork is? (I am sure I have seen people eat on tv) speaks perfect English, except when she can't, is a terrific fighter, except when she is not, etc. Our hero is a 2 dimensional Native American, with mythic powers who has trouble with his feelings. His vocabulary is peppered with (helpfully translated) "indian"language. Other characters pop in and out ( to help drag out this tediously long narrative.) Lots of fight scenes, a little nooky. Needed a good editor to straighten out the storyline. I could go on, but this mess helped me get to sleep for several nights.
and Siobhan is pronounced Sheh-Van.

Sephti and Koda, as presented in this unique narrative, are two of my favorite characters in urban fantasy. This unique novel requires the listener's full attention to nuances and should not be skimmed. I have listened to it more than once and each time become more fascinated with Ms. Paige's original concept. What a refreshing change from the formulaic works now in mass production!
More Elisa Paige, please, with Felicity Munroe as the narrator. Narration is almost as important as content in audible presentations and Felicity nailed it with this one.
