Publisher's Summary

Bailey Chen is fresh out of college, with all the usual new-adult demons: no cash, no job offers, and an awkward relationship with Zane, the old friend she kinda-sorta hooked up with during high school.
But when Zane introduces Bailey to his monster-fighting bartender friends, her demons become a lot more literal. It turns out evil creatures stalk the city streets after hours, and they can be hunted only with the help of magically mixed cocktails: Vodka grants super strength, whiskey offers the power of telekinesis, and tequila lets its drinker fire blasts of elemental energy. But will all of these powers be enough for Bailey to halt a mysterious rash of gruesome deaths? And what will she do when the safety of a real-world job beckons?
This sharp and funny urban fantasy is perfect for fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and grown-up listeners of Harry Potter. Includes 15 recipes from a book of ancient cocktail lore.

Not bad, but not great

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The story itself was not too bad, if Krueger put out a sequel, or even a book outside this realm, I would probably give it a try. The concept is definitely there. He has the talent. So, yes, I would urge someone to give it a try. Just because I wasn't head over heels about it, doesn't mean someone might not love it.

Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Woo Zeller’s performances?

I doubt it. It took me 6-7 chapters to not notice her voice and the way she speaks. It was very distracting. I actually considered asking for a refund and picking a different book. Once I was halfway through the book I was more into the story and didn't notice her voice as much.

Was Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge worth the listening time?

The story is solid. I think people will like it. It's fun, but I just wish there'd been a different narrator.

Well worth the listen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Sure. In fact, I think I will, since the mix of humour and action will probably appeal to one of my friends who is a big Buffy fan.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked all of them really, but Bailey's mentor (not Zane, the other one..I'm terrible with names) endeared himself to me.

What does Emily Woo Zeller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

What any competent narrator brings. She's pretty good at doing different voices for each character, and that brings it to life in a way that simply reading wouldn't.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really. It made me smile though, and listening to it while working made my day a lot less boring. I also made about 100 mental notes to learn more about various drinks.

Any additional comments?

If you're looking for a deep book with lots of character development and maybe an underlying message about coming of age or something like that, then this isn't the book for you. If, however, you're looking for a few hours of action filled fun, go right ahead. I hope there will be a sequel!
