Publisher's Summary

Most humans have no idea that a dark and deadly underworld, filled with magic and monsters, exists. They wander through life blissfully ignorant of the supernatural world around them. Nora Jacobs is different. Nora knows exactly what kinds of hellish creatures haunt the streets of Detroit.

Thanks to a unique set of psychic abilities, Nora has managed to steer clear of the underworld most of her life. But all that changes the night the most powerful vampire in the city discovers her gifts and decides to use her as a tool to find one of his missing clan members.

As if that's not bad enough, Nora believes she's cursed. All her life, people, especially men, have been drawn to her - some to the point of obsession and violence. Underworlders, it seems, are not immune to this curse, and now she's caught the attention of some of the most dangerous monsters in the city. Neck deep in an investigation only she can solve, Nora quickly makes as many new allies as she does enemies. Her biggest problem is staying alive long enough to decide which is which.

Contains mature themes.

Fantastic start!

Fantastic start to the series! Very slow burn but lots of intrigue and I'm curious to see where the story takes me. I'm not 100% loving the narrator. I feel like her voice doesn't quite match Nora or the situations but I'll be listening to the next two books on audible as well.

GOOD. INTERESTING STORYLINE.

Good plot. The protagonist have problems but luckily she met up with some allies/friends to support her. Fast paced action from the start. The storyline is good and leave room for further development. Hollie Jackson's performance/narration is perfect. She brings out the different characters well and her male voices are acceptable. The first book in this series turned out very well. Worth a credit. I will continue with book 2.

Pleasantly Surprised

I go through a lot of fantasy books a month, so I tend to try many different authors. I was pleasantly surprised by this story. It is shorter than I prefer by was entertaining the entire time. The characters and plot were built quickly so the beginning didn’t drag. The narrating is well done, no annoying quarks to her voice. I am looking forward to more from this series and author.

Good story but the men turned to boys

I liked the book until the end, when the exhausted heroine had to boost the men’s attitudes. It began to feel like a reverse harem book and made the “men” seem like boys that needed a mother figure.

Like the narrator did not like the story

struggled to finish. Story line and characters seem very forced. Ended up just getting annoyed with the main character

didn’t bother to finish it

I agree that the cast of characters and personalities are excellent and the story premise well designed but the poor logic used to explain the heroines’ actions devalued the book just when it should have become most important. Also the monologues for everyone internally dialogued by the mind reading heroine are shallow and underdeveloped. I honestly believe this author can get there, and I will keep an eye on her but this book didn’t stand up to the reviews it’s been getting. The narrator’s tone indicates she was just as bored as I was and the sing song pattern annoyed the eardrums. OTOH I did move on to the second book in the series and found it improved in most of the areas that this one was lacking in.

lead Character Whines to Much.

lead Character whined throughout the book about
how she doesn't take charity and how she doesn't date. It was nauseating to the point that I put the book down 3 times and walked away.

Decent Beginning

This was a pleasant audiobook. The narrator isn't the best, maybe, with voices, but she wasn't irritating for me. I found her performance engaging enough to lose myself in the story.

There were a few parts of this I felt could use some work, but over all, it is a decent first book in a series. That first chapter? I was nodding thinking "Giiiirl, I feel you." What I liked about this was that no matter what was going on Nora was a fighter. She's not strong, physically, but she didn't let that stop her or make her cower before someone who was trying to do her harm. She even had the smarts to play along a few times to find her opening and actually took it.

The paranormal side of this is maybe like any other, but what I liked most? The top dogs in the paranormal world aren't the usual creatures.

It was a decent story that I don't regret listening to. I'll be checking out the second book.

Interesting Story

Absolutely enjoyed this book. The main character has a pretty sad backstory... but for the most part, the actual plot was fairly lighthearted and a fun listen. I can’t wait for the second audiobook and the third book!

Loved it

This is my first book narrated by Hollie Jackson and I really enjoyed her performance. I enjoyed the large cast of paranormals in the book. Looking forward to the next book

Finally a story to get lost in

Spent the last couple of months trying to find a new series to immerse myself in. Found some interesting stuff but this is the first one I’ve listened to almost none stop. I will definitely read the second book and hope to find more in the series. Not been so involved in a story since reading Deborah Harkness last summer.

Quick read, fun but a bit slight

I really enjoyed the Demon Hunter series so I thought I'd give this a try. It's similar in tone, but feels a bit thin compared to the other series. The characters aren't as well developed. The main character has such a horrific past which also casts her gift in a very scary light, it makes it hard for the rest of the story that feel like a fun caper.

Trollific

Loved this!!!
The story focuses around Nora a not so normal human and the madness she gets involved in due to her special uncontrollable abilities. This audiobook is filled with sexy men and a different take on the whole underworld scene, which is sooooooo refreshing. A must read for those who love the paranormal world and the differing species and charms. Highly recommend !!!
Also it’s not full of heavy sexual context the way some paranormal romances are, you can genuinely feel how all the characters are getting to know each other and see how each bond is developing with meaningful interactions.
CON: I have run out of credits this month and can’t get the second book yet!! It’s going to be a long agonising wait 😿
