Publisher's Summary

Another day. Another disaster.
After surviving a kidnapping and battling with spriggans, Matilda Whipplethorn finds her life in a suburban human house pretty boring. She's been excluded from school because of her fire-making abilities and her former friends are afraid of her. Salvation comes in the form of a life-threatening illness. Her tutor, Miss Penrose, needs a medication and there's only one place to get it, the spriggans. Matilda heads back to the antique mall to save Miss Penrose even though it just might cost her everything.

An Engaging Narration

What made the experience of listening to Fierce Creatures the most enjoyable?

How the narrator dove into each individual character full force and filled their shoes magnificently--portrayed with great realism that captured my focus and let my mind drift along with them into this magical tale.


Which character – as performed by Michele Knotz – was your favorite?

I personally enjoyed the characters that would say "We're from the Home Depot." It's such a silly ongoing gag and the way Michele delivered it was hysterical!


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

With Michele's narrative, this book had me in stitches. The way she delivers the narrative is so rib tickling that it left me wanting more and more!


Any additional comments?

A riveting story with compelling characters set in a fantasy world--just my kind of book! An excellent read, and Michele provides some of the best audiobook narration I've heard to date. I wasn't much of an audiobook man until I heard these stories with her remarkable depiction of the characters and telling of the plot unfolding around them. Definitely would listen to more! 5/5 stars all around! :)

I loved the battle scene, where Matilda was injured but still fighting. She isn't a force to mess with, that's for sure.


Any additional comments?

This was the first audiobook I've listened to, and my introduction to this series. By the end of my listen, I ended up purchasing the Kindle edition of books 1-3. I very much am looking forward to the next book. Michele is amazing!
