Publisher's Summary

Leah Tang just died onstage. Well, not literally. Not yet. Leah's stand-up career isn't going well. But she understands the power of fiction, and when she's offered employment with the mysterious Genrenauts Foundation, she soon discovers that literally dying onstage is a hazard of the job!
Her first assignment takes her to a Western world. When a cowboy tale slips off its rails and the outlaws start to win, it's up to Leah - and the Genrenauts team - to nudge the story back on track and prevent a catastrophe on Earth. But the story's hero isn't interested in winning, and the safety of Earth hangs in the balance....

Starts weak, gets better

The opening almost lost me, but it hit a stride halfway through. I can't help but think the author chose the wrong protagonist: it would've been better if he had the main character be from a genre world, stumbling through the curtain and forced to a Platonic realization. Leah is certainly likable, but her introduction feels artificial and forced.

Narrator is good enough when voicing the women, but I found her male voices distracting. She shouldn't try to go so low on them; would be better if she let her voice stay higher, but opened her vocal chords more for a broader sound.
