great story and amazing narrator
Jennifer manages to read in a variety of different dialects, making it REALLY easy to "get" the whole book.
The story itself is different from your everyday paranormal lovestory. (for once, it's set in a completely different world) The heroine is witty and accomplished and her relationship develops "naturally". Nothing seems forced, the characters are great.
I really enjoyed this audiobook!

Romantic demon hunting
It's a romantic story of the wizard Shamara (not Riala), who has lost her family during a war with the Easterners. These don't believe in magic and wizardry. So the demon, who haunts the castel where the new ruler (the reeve) lives, can roam freely. Now the demon has murdered Shamaras blind and old wizard-master. And after serveral aristocrats are killed, the reeve has Shamara asked to act as his mistress, in order to live in the castele and to find and destroy the demon.
I liked the story, its funny and romantic with a good touch of fantasy, but I give only four stars, because it needs some time to get familiar withe the reader, she lisps a bit.
