Publisher's Summary

Constance Verity has been saving the world since she was seven, and she's sick of it. She sets off on one last adventure to reset her destiny and become the one thing she's never been: ordinary.
Ever since she was granted a wish at birth by her fairy godmother, Constance Verity has become the world's great adventurer. She is a master of martial arts and a keen detective and possesses a collection of strange artifacts. Constance has spent the past 28 years saving the world, and she's tired of it. All she wants is to work in an office and date a nice, normal guy. And she's figured a way out.
The only problem is that saving the world is Constance's destiny. She's great at it, and there are forces at work to make sure she stays in the job.
Then again, it's also her destiny to have a glorious death.

Baffled by the enthusiasm

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Young readers. Not "young adult" - young.


Would you ever listen to anything by A. Lee Martinez again?

No.


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

I have not. I think she is quite good... better than many on Audible... not as good as the best.


Any additional comments?

I like a light and fun read. So not faulting that, in any way. But I am baffled by the comments which caused me to buy this -- such as "fantastic ride", "masterfully", "ultimate female action comedy" and "laugh out loud". To me it seems like lightweight writing, severely lacking in substance. I can only think it is for young readers - but I don't see that stated.

Terrific story

This was a great read. It was funny, yes, but also had heart and adventure and a great sense of wonder. Highly recommended.
