Publisher's Summary

Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother’s rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms – a struggle that could very well mean her death.

Pace is hard to follow.

Often during the book I was confused as to where the characters were. The narrator almost seems to read new chapters like she was reading the next sentence. The action would pass from one location from another without much transition and if you are like me and listening to audiobook is something you do when you do something else then it's mighty confusing. Book wise this is ok but it doesn't translate well into audio. The story was alright but I might have enjoyed more if I could have followed the pace.

Listening for the First Time

I've read the book several times before, but I've never listened to it. The narrator was good at voices, but kind of shit at using the text to inform how she read something. For instance, if the text said, "Kaye said thoughtfully," after a sentence, the narrator wouldn't have paid attention to it. I found that quite jarring at times, although otherwise her reading was fairly good.
