OK--this is definitely NOT one of my favorite KA books; not even close. The sole reason it rated 3 stars was the creativity of this whole fantasyland series. While this book had its moments, the body of the work was pretty lackluster when compared to the first 4 books in the series. I hesitate to write further as spoilers would be inevitable in order to understand my response. I found 'Frannie' to be a non-compelling heroine for the most part and had not much more investment in Noc. The primary character in this book that resonated with me was Josette (remember I listened, so spelling may be an issue). Josette was a new character specific to this book; the other compelling character is Valentine, who has been a continuing character.
I think I understand KA's intent behind this story and there are quite a few strong moments/conversations. Yet, this book , to me, just does not have the force behind it that the first four have had.
The redeeming performance by Tillie Hooper is another reason for the 3 stars. She's quite magnificent as ALL voices. I am hopeful this is NOT the final book in the series.

It was really entertaining hearing about the characters exploring this world but other than that it was lacking. I've heard the 5 books in the series and the only one i wanted to hear again was book 2, that had a really well taught out story.

I've loved this series and i think this was a great book but there was way too much sex in it. At times I stopped listening to it for a period, others I skipped part of the book. It was extremely repetitive and made the book difficult to get through and enjoy.
This series was fantastic. Books 1 -4 were entertaining, creative and well read.
Somehow Book 5 went off on a tangent that was poorly written, messy, boring and so very disappointing. Readers could easily stop at book 4 and miss almost nothing but a poor repeat of the previous 4 stories.
