I can tell you I am still highly impressed with Bevis's writing style. She has a smooth, flowing way of doing things and I find it very easy to step into the story. And as for the audiobook, I believe this one was done much better than the first! I didn't notice as much stuttering or quick-speaking, but she continued to add her snark and attitude to her dialogue, which made me laugh out loud on many occasions!
If you can believe it I think I like this novel even more than the first. She has made the story exciting and didn't fall to the curse of horrible sequels! I'm very impressed and let me just say-- very glad I have book 3 now....otherwise I might be looking for her house at this point...
Her young adult series "Daughters of Zeus" is available wherever ebooks are sold. She also writes for truuconfessions.com and Athens Parent Magazine.
