Publisher's Summary

Funny, sexy, fashionable and just a tiny bit terrifying. Best-selling author Tara Moss’ exciting Pandora English series – is True Blood meets The Devil Wears Prada in high-fashion fantasy New York.

Book 2 in the best-selling English Pandora series by popular Australian author Tara Moss. 

It's been two months since Pandora English left her small hometown to live with her mysterious great-aunt in a haunted mansion in Spektor - the fog-wreathed suburb of Manhattan that doesn't appear on any map. With the help of her great-aunt and the beautiful - but dead - Lieutenant Luke, Pandora is beginning to understand the significance of the Lucasta family heritage her late mother kept secret from her. Pandora is heir to a great gift. And with that comes frightening responsibility.... 

Meanwhile, she seems doomed to be forever underestimated in the mortal world. Her fashion editor boss doesn't seem to know she exists. But New York needs Pandora's special gifts. There is a new designer in town, and her ambitions extend far beyond taking over the fashion world one knit at a time....

The narrator drove me nuts!!

The narrator on the first book of the series was so good I purchased the next book in the series without thinking. The Pandora story is no where near as powerful at Tara Moss’ other series but nice for something light to listen to on the train. Unfortunately the second book has a different reader and her voice sounds really petulant and annoying. Makes pandora sound like a spoiled barbie doll or one of the girls in ‘Clueless’. The story itself was ok but I was unable to enjoy it because of the grating voice. I recommend picking the same reader for the whole series. (The first one was brilliant and really suited the main character).

Loved it

I have to admit, spiders are the one thing that truely freak me out. However I loved this book. It is beautifully written and well crafted. Bringing to mind classic horror films and echos of Stephen King’s ‘Rose Madder’. I loved it. I was hard to put down - so to speak. I can’t wait to start the next book. I am a huge fan of Tara Moss and making my way through this series is truly delightful.

Another home run for Tara Moss

This is a fun supernatural series...what I love is that it never drags...ever. Just fun, creative and very upbeat. While the actress in each book of the series is different, they're all upbeat and perfectly set the tone for each book. I was concerned about this, but they were all so similar you barely noticed.

Beyond Creepy!

Any additional comments?

I give it three stars because it is an interesting story in what I thought was a fantasy novel.

When I noticed Biblical parallels (only on the dark side) I was way creeped out...and that was before she gives acknowledgement to the Wiccan Goddess Fiona Horne at the end! What??

Just my opinion.

A light listen

Would you consider the audio edition of The Spider Goddess to be better than the print version?

As I have not read the print edition this is difficult but the narrator certainly made it an interesting listen. The fact that the narrator of this second book in the series was different from the first does not detract from it.

What did you like best about this story?

All of it but the descriptive passages of the house are very good.

Have you listened to any of Luci Christian’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to any other narration a by Luci.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Very nearly did listen to it in one go.

Any additional comments?

Have downloaded the third in the series on the basis of the enjoyment of one and two!
