Narrated by Mary Ann Weathers
Run Time: 13 hrs and 35 mins
Genre: steampunk-ish, Christian-ish
Nyssa Glass’s life is kind of a mess. She gets framed for her boss’s murder, gets blackmailed into a dangerous job, goes on the run, and still gets a fairy tale ending.
- I really like this author, but some things about the plot and characters annoyed me.
- There are 5 separate tales here, but you’d probably want to read them in order.
- The worldbuilding’s interesting, but some things don’t seem to jive. The computers seem way too advanced for the time still talking about “horseless carriages.”
- The performance was okay. Only the voice for Amara was truly painful to listen to, everybody else was fine. Theo sounded adorable.
- Even though much of the plot (dumb character decisions) struck me as infuriating, I can see many people just ignoring such or not being bothered by it.
- The end of each story turned out all right, but the journey there took way too many idiot-induced and convenient timing turns for me to truly enjoy it.
- This might just be a pet peeve, but the phrase “Shock me” as an expletive got super old real quick. It fits and was clever oh the first one or two of 55 times in that story.
I still like the author. The narrator’s okay. I’m not sure how people in the target audience would take the story, but it’s worth trying.
