Publisher's Summary

Piper Griffiths wants one thing in life: To become a Consul, a keeper of the peace between humans and daemons. There are precisely three obstacles in her way.
The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to get Piper into bed and otherwise annoy the crap out of her.
The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive - and scary. Did she mention scary?
The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon.
And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes
.Now she's on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She's dead on her own, but there's no one she can trust - no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons...see problems one and two.

The narrator needs help!

I've never written a review before, but I feel I must. The story was fantastic. I loved the book. The narrator? Oh my goodness. First, the good: she has a nice tone, she speaks well and has decent acting skills. The bad: . She sounds like she has a cold for the entire book, and for about 25% of the book sounds as if she's actually plugging her nose. My biggest pet peeve throughout the entire book that was INCREDIBLY distracting is that she doesn't pronounce L's that are preceded by O's. Example: shoulder shoulder very obviously has a L in the middle of it but she pronounces it SHOW-DER. Hold? Pronounced HOAD. Is this a dialect thing? I don't know, but PLEASE SOMEONE! Give her some tips!! She could be very good with some coaching, but then again so could I. It is so bad and so distracting that I'm really debating whether or not to get the second book. I did really enjoy the the story itself, but her narration is so distracting to me I'm not sure if I'm going to purchase book two.
My big question is: why did no one notice this in the proofing/editing/whatever they do with audio books??

One of my new fave series

I'm leaving this review on all of the books from this series, but no real spoilers here.

I can say that I'm terribly sad that I'm almost done with the 5th book in this series (even if only 3 are on audible), I am worried that I won't be able to find another series that I love quite like this one, not for awhile. But in another way I'm a little bit glad that I am almost done because I can get back to my life afterward!

I read a ton of books. I don't always leave reviews, but I had to leave one for this series because it kept me going and going and going. I never wanted to put it down. I had to force myself to do so. And when I found that the last two books were not on audible I almost cried, not kidding. The narrator, while not my favorite at first, ended up fantastic.

The plot was awesome. Slight spoiler here: the love story is terrific. There wasn't much of the icky-sweet, romantic-puke, "our love is the strongest love that ever existed" crap that I see in other series that always makes me go "Really? C'mon now." This one was so much more realistic.

I like that the characters are strong but faulted. I love how the friendship between the 3 grows so strong. I wish Piper would say "Thank you" once in awhile, but I'll get over it. I like how the twists happen, when you think one thing might happen and then, bam, another thing happens.

This series had me gripped from *literally* (I'm using that with it's intended meaning), the first chapter of the first book. That is my favorite type of book, the kind that just grip you and won't let you go. I haven't had that happen to me for a long time and it was such a pleasant surprise, even if it did keep my up until 3 in the morning a few times. These are going on my faves shelf because...well...they are.

Dear Annette Marie, more please? Pretty please?
