Suddenly Zoey can't walk to her car without an accident happening. The engineering quality was also good, again, that's something that can sometimes lack with the Audible catalogue. Don't get me wrong, it's not a book to tax the old grey cells, but it's decent enough to wile away a few hours. So I'll keep it to the characters.

Zoey Donovan continues to enchant me, as does Naquin and the way she spins such a fun story while incorporating underused, super fun creatures in her Monster Haven series. But there are other reasons why these books impressed me this much. Zoey's best friend Sara was repeatedly raped by an incubus over many days during the last book. A train of bad lucks comes into her life and especially that which touches on the death of her clients.
Add to that, the Leprechaun Mafia is in town. She wakes up in the morning, finds things amiss, and thinks that someone has broken into her kitchen only to find out that it is an incubus. With a little luck, she might be able to save everyone and still have time for a second attempt at a decent first date with her favorite reaper. Volumul al doilea al seriei, Pooka In My Pantry, a fost desavarsit! Insa nu numai Maurice este un personaj realizat in mod impecabil. This book more than the first really starts a story arc, so the ending doesn't totally wrap up.
Al doilea aspect care m-a fascinat este modul in care sunt construite personajele, emotiile, sentimentele ce se revarsa din interactiunile lor si modul in care se creeaza relatiile dintre ele. I just love Zoey and her friends and no matter what happen, you can trust Zoey to be there for her friends — with or without a toiletbrush.

They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations. This book made me laugh! On both occasions, Riley the smoking-hot reaper has refused to follow through.
Heck, this series is just that fun and lovable. She is the only Aegis left meaning that it is her responsibility to protect these creatures and give them sanctuary.

Something or someone is hunting the Hidden, and Zoey has to stop it. Naquin continues this delightful series, bringing back most of the original cast of the first novel.

Now she is starting to be more in a active role in her life. As the series goes on, there is just stuff happening that has to be read in order and I hate spoiling. Seeing her try to adjust to life as a helper of Hidden Creatures is really fun and leads to a variety of amusing situations that had me constantly laughing.
Towards the end of the book the plot starts to add some interesting elements, and there are some twists and turns I wasn't expecting as the book rolls towards conclusion, but it ended up seeming almost like an afterthought, or some heavy-handed foreshadowing of a more meaty conflict for the next book. A neat freak closet monster, who also happens to be a gourmet chef? I love the characters, I totally dig the author's voice, and the stories keep me entertained for hours of pure reading bliss. Exista ceva atat de firesc in existenta lor, atat de natural si lipsit de exagerari incat din momentul in care incepi sa citesti povestea, iti recapeti o parte din sufletul de copil pe care il credeai pierdut. But there are other reasons why these books impressed me this much. Naquin keeps it somewhat grounded by showing that there is still death and destruction in the world she built.

That information is gloss After taking offense to the sexual abuse triggers in the first book of the series, I decided that I like the world, main characters, and writing style enough to give the second book a shot. The Leprechaun Mafia are in town demanding protection money from Zoey and her friends or death will follow, Maurice leaves to try and save his marriage and a bad luck pooka mov If Zoey thought the incubus problems were bad, then her new set of problems are going to be worse.
