Publisher's Summary

Callypso Lillis is a siren with a very big problem, one that stretches up her arm and far into her past. For the last seven years she's been collecting a bracelet of black beads up her wrist, magical IOUs for favors she's received. Only death or repayment will fulfill the obligations. Only then will the beads disappear.
Everyone knows that if you need a favor, you go to the Bargainer to make it happen. He's a man who can get you anything you a price. And everyone knows that sooner or later he always collects.
But for one of his clients, he's never asked for repayment. Not until now. When Callie finds the fae king of the night in her room, a grin on his lips and a twinkle in his eye, she knows things are about to change. At first it's just a chaste kiss - a single bead's worth - and a promise for more.
For the Bargainer, it's more than just a matter of rekindling an old romance. Something is happening in the Otherworld. Fae warriors are going missing one by one. Only the women are returned, each in a glass casket, a child clutched to their breast. And then there are the whispers among the slaves, whispers of an evil that's been awoken.
If the Bargainer has any hope to save his people, he'll need the help of the siren he spurned long ago. Only, his foe has a taste for exotic creatures, and Callie just happens to be one.

I'm so glad I read this

I was about to skip over this book because the summary was a bit confusing but the reviews said it was worth a shot. I was not disappointed. I loved that the worlds were established enough but not overly explained to follow along smoothly. The main character is tough and funny (didn't expect that!) and the side characters are interesting. Of course the love interest was ¡¡HOT!! and really every fantasy style romance man but he was everything I'd look for so I was super happy. the plot is interesting and engaging and there wasn't a moment I though "hmmm wonder when something fascinating is going to happen"
It's not just well written! Oh no. Susannah Jones gives one of the BEST performances I've heard on audible and I've been a member for a long time and gone through about 100 books. Susannah where have you been all my life!? She give great tones and has amazing character voices. She gives one of the best sexy male voices I've heard, better than some men! Her delivery is natural and impeccable. Enough so I might just get another book she's narrated based on her being part of it alone!

Would you listen to Rhapsodic again? Why?

Definitely! Great book and awesome narrator! I read this book when it was released on kindle. As soon as I received an email from the author for the release of this audiobook, I purchased. Laura Thalassa is an automatic purchase for me.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Des! Do I need a reason?

Have you listened to any of Susannah Jones’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end!

A Fine Romance

A fine romance

Though Desmond is a pitiful name for a romantic hero, this is nonetheless an enjoyable romance. Thematically It feels like the writer has borrowed heavily from Sara J Mas' Court of Thorns series, but given I like that series this wasn't too much of an issue for me. In tone it's more like A. J. Aalto. This story lacks Mas' complexity and nuance, but it's fun.

Aggressively Cliched

Flimsy, poorly written romance with a blurb indicating a fantasy novel. The prologue sets out a promising idea but it’s wasted in the following chapters, drenched in cliche, poor characterisation and distracting plotting. After so many quality audiobooks lately this was such a let down.
