I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. The book arrived with the first two volumes in MP3 form. This review is based on the third book.

A few things bothered me about this book. First of all, the font kept changing. I have never seen that before. The book is set in a very small type then suddenly it reverts to a larger and more comfortable type. Then back to small type. A little distracting for the reader.

I had difficulty staying interested in the story. I found that there were a lot of characters with weird names to keep track of. I wasn't sure who the good guys were or the bad guys. There was a lot going on and it was a little confusing.

Greta is Erikasbuddy Uber hates it when authors give everyone weird names. I can never keep up with them when they do that.

OH! And I totally gets ya! I wouldn't want the font to change like that either. I like BIG BIG BIG grandma font ;) Makes it easier on the peepers

Catherine It's insanely distracting when the font changes in a book. It always snaps me out of the story.

I guess it beats spelling errors.
