Publisher's Summary

When Cynthia Rothchild's best friend, Annie, falls head over heels for the new high-school librarian, Cyn can totally understand why - he’s really young and seriously hot and apparently thinks Annie would make an excellent library monitor. But almost immediately, Cyn starts to sense that something about Mr. Gabriel isn’t quite right. Maybe it’s the creepy look in the librarian’s (literally) mesmerizing eyes, or the weird feeling Cyn gets whenever she’s around him, or the blood and horns and giant bat-like wings that appear when he thinks no one is looking. Before long, Cyn realizes that Mr. Gabriel is, in fact…a demon. Now, in addition to saving her beloved school musical (Sweeney Todd!) from technical disaster and avoiding making a complete fool of herself with her own hopeless crush (who happens to be the only other person who knows the truth about Mr. Gabriel), Cyn has to save her best friend from the attractive-yet-very-very-bad clutches of the evil librarian, who has not only bewitched Annie but also seems to be slowly sucking the life force out of the entire student body!

A fabulous, and funny YA paranormal

Would you listen to Evil Librarian again? Why?

Yes! It's a great story and the witty dialogue and overall humor make it such a fun book! It's definitely worth a repeat listen.

What other book might you compare Evil Librarian to and why?

While I can't think of a particular book right now, the paranormal storyline and snarky humor remind me of the early seasons of Buffy The Vampire Slayer (in style and overall feel, not that the characters or stories are similar.)

What about Emily Foster’s performance did you like?

I'm new to audiobooks and have been disappointed with many samples I've tried, but she did a great job. I prefer dual narrators for male and female voices but she was able to do well with all of them and I found her very easy to listen to (and NOT annoying to me at all.;)

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

I loved the dialogue which was very humorous and Cyn's inner dialogue had me laughing quite often.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book if you are looking for an overall fun and humorous book with a paranormal theme. (There are some curse words but they did not seem out of place being spoken by high school students. If a few here and there bother you, just be aware they are there.;) I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will definitely check out more titles from this author and narrator.

All dialog with very little action.

Extremely repetitive. Heroine comes to the same conclusions over and over again and doesn't take action or move the story forward.
