No rest for the wicked... or anyone else! Welcome to the world of Marla Mason, part-time goddess of death and former chief sorcerer of the Felport. It is a world full of snark, violence, weirdness, bad choices with surprising consequences, friendship, betrayal, villainous living severed heads, magic motorcycles, axes made of fragments of moonlight, monsters from beyond the multiverse, and other delights. Alternating one month in the mortal world and one month in the underworld, while Marla is on Earth she tries to do good and remember what it means to be mortal - often having to remind her adversaries of their own mortality. In Lady of Misrule, Marla awakens for her month on Earth and finds her allies missing and an old enemy causing trouble in her home city of Felport. If that wasn't bad enough, a charming gentlemen from beyond the multiverse has decided that murdering gods might make for an amusing pastime. He figures he will start with Marla. Now, with the help of her former apprentice, Bradley Bowman, Marla must rescue her friends, crush her enemies, and eliminate the aforementioned existential threat - before her month runs out and she returns to the underworld.

I have been following this book series ever since I was in 7th grade, and I am now a sophomore in college. TA Pratt never fails to disappoint - this book was excellent in every way. I was always finding an excuse to continue listening. Marla is always learning and she never fails to surprise the reader with her powers of stubbornness.
Her character voices completely enhanced the book. After reading these characters for years I was delighted to get to hear someone give them more personality than I had in my head. Her voices were perfect and made it even better than it already was.
