As I said, I listened to this book every time I enjoyed my bubble bath. I'm a serious bath gal and this book took care of my listening entertainment while soaking in my LushCosmetic-Heaven! I've listened to Mark Edwards before; he writes with a certain style that you have to know in order to enjoy. If not, you'll get bored. It's like he gets sidetracked sometimes. This book was no different.
I like the cover, but it really did nothing for me or the story. I'm used to something going on or the cover matching well with the story. This one didn't do it for me. Also, I LOVED the narrator. Elliot Hill has a great voice for audio. Then there was the intrigue, but because Kristen and Jamie were a bit thick, it made the story annoying at times.
There were times in the story where I kept fussing,"Come on guys!" They were doing things in response to the threatening actions against them that made no sense. I wanted to throw a shoe at them! Sometimes an author can make characters so real, they're unreal. These two fit that bill. I also have to say,there were unnecessary parts that I could have done without hearing. These parts are R-rated and overly described. I didn't need that. About six times. I will say no more.
The ending came together well, but not well enough for me to rate this as high as another book by Mark Edwards, that's soon to post. I may listen to it again, I may never; I just don't 'know yet. While The Magpies was entertaining, I can definitely say it wasn't the best or worst book I've listened to. On to the next story!📚
