Three months ago, I lost my foster sister, Sienna, to the darkness. As in blood magic and chaos and general mayhem. No one saw it until it was too late, but I should have. Now I have a wounded heart and soul that I can't even reveal to anyone around me, because I'm supposed to hate Sienna with the fiery passion of the justified - and I do. I just wish I didn't feel so lost without her, so unsure of the path I thought I had carved for myself, and so outclassed by the powerful Adepts constantly by my side these days. I'm not even sure if they're with me for my own protection or because my shiny new powers are rare and valuable. Assuming that I ever figure out who or what I am, and how my magic actually works. Even chocolate can't save the day every time - just most of the time. At least I've got that going for me.

A great follow up in the Dowser series. The story seemed to go really quickly before I knew it, what I thought was the middle of the story was actually nearing the end. All the characters are back - Jade, Desmond, Ket, Kandy, Pearl, with a few new ones including Rusty's teen sister Maury, Jades mother Scarlet & we see the return of Sienna.... We also finally found out what is Jade's other magical half.....
Caitlin does a great job again although still not quiet so sure about the voice for Ket & sadly can't do an Australian accent LOL.
There a few laugh out loud moments. Some moments you do feel sad for Jade but not enough to cry.
As the story was nearing the end, I purchased book 3 , as it does leave you on a bit of a cliff hanger & I need to know what happens next :)
so much fun and the reader is very engaging. totally worth listening to and I will be buying the rest!
"Detached voice in a way?"
She did a great job with the story, but I wasn't a fan of the main characters pace of voice that she chose. She did a great job with differing between different characters though, and giving them all their own feeling. She also seemed a little old for the main character. But- I loved being able to listen to the story at work.
