What listeners say about Once Upon a Midnight Drow
First I want to address some of the other reviewer's issue with the MC's attitude. I didn't really feel the same. I kept "she's only 21" in mind when she seemed a bit petulant or bratty. And, this didn't really happen that often. Second I didn't care for the breakdown of the books. Mainly the fact that there weren't any. LOL This is really set up as a long book with occasional retelling of backstories or ideas to keep you updated. Third the ending seemed a bit cliffhanger-ish. I know, not a word but I bet you all know what I mean regardless. This is a good book. I didn't get bored or annoyed with it which is a win for me. I'm not one to dig into plots. I just want to like what I hear/read. That's it. With this I did and with amount of reading you get, the neat way Magicals are described and their new lives here, and a good narrator... it's well worth the credit.

Once Upon a Midnight Drow (Goth Drow #1) by Martha Carr and Michael Anderle There is a lot to unpack in this novel. Supernatural being normally live below a certain borderline. There is a security force that controls and hunts down those that break the rules. Most humans are clueless that they live among creatures that are powerful and just as smart as they are but look a lot different. There are orcs, trolls, goblins, elves, and more. Some have magic and some don't. No one has seen a half long until the gal of the story comes along. She is half Drow ( dark elf) and half human. The story how that happened is interesting. She doesn't know any drows to help her learn how to control her magic. It's full of interesting characters and tons of fighting, both magical and other. Enjoyable read but I thought it could have been either enhanced and made into two books or revised to make a shorter book. Good narration!

I gave 3
I felt like their was a lot of repeating things said I like the Mc but I did figure that the ending was a cliff hanger for these reasons I gave it 3 stars will try the next book.
The authors do a fantastic job of not glazing over anything while keeping it interesting. The book is nothing new but highly entertaining. Can't wait for the next books to come out!
Very original story
Characters are different and the mystery of the storyline keeps growing. Kind of a Alien Nation theme, but still good.
More More More
What a story. The poor girl is going through her own hell and still helps out her friend and is going to get vengence. And her mom is just ... wow. Keep up the great work
Good start to the series
Good story, slow to start but that's not a bad thing as it sets up our main character. Lots of action and different characters - some good, some bad - time will tell if they are still good and bad by the end of the series.. I liked the narration too.
