I almost put this one back on the shelf after the first hour, but gradually it became more entertaining, and I stuck with it. The world of the series and the vocal style of the narrator were both reminiscent of Buffy, and while I am not a big fan, I assume that will be an attraction for many listeners. For me the best aspect of this book was the creation of some appealing and delightful characters. Unfortunately, for most of the book, their choices are predictable and uninspired, and the "deeper" aspects of moral conflict are disappointingly obvious. Still, by the end I was enjoying them and did not regret sticking with the book.
WARNING. If you have not read the earlier titles in this series do NOT start with this book. It is full of spoilers about important plot turns from earlier episodes.

I envy anyone who will discover Marla Mason and her world. I got halfway through the first book and I was hooked! Funny and fabulous with a wacky cast of characters, T. A. Pratt's series is pure delight. Please bring us book 5 soon! A totally unique listening experience -- and one of the best narrators out there! Thank's T.A. for great entertainment!

I was hoping to enjoy the whole series, as I like urban fantasy. The writing in Dead Reign isn't helped by having a narrator with a high, fast, breathy voice- when she interupts a necromancer in a midnight graveyard and says 'You've been a bad boy' she doesn't growl the phrase- she sounds like a rather arch nursery teacher. But I just don't think the writing is good enough to let me finish one book, let alone the series.

Listened to this while driving and enjoyed it. The narration was good and lets face it when you buy this you know you are not buying Shakespear. Its a light, good story thats a good example of its type. I will be getting others in the series.
