Club Nexus Audiobook

4 Hearts

This is a very interesting short story. It is the story of a single event that happens Club Nexus, but it is told from four different points of view from start to finish. It is a very interesting way to tell a story. This is the first story in the Ivy Granger series that isn’t told from Ivy’s POV, so it was interesting to get all the different aspects.

First part of the story is told by a Unseelie Fae who has been working as a bartender in Club Nexus for several years. She made a bad deal with Puck (yes, that Puck, from Shakespeare fame) who is also the manager of the club. She decides that she is no longer going to be a slave to Puck and she is going to get out from under that bargain.

Then we move to the next part where we are told the story from a vampire. This southern vampire has come to “Bite Club” where he could break the vampire rules. This keeps things from getting too boring. The traveling location helps prevent them from getting caught.

Up next is Jinx. How great is it that we get to see this scene from her point of view. I love Jinx and I love that we finally get to see inside her head.

The last part is told by Forneus, the demonic lawyer. I liked this part of the story most of all. Seeing things from his point of view was very interesting. I actually felt sorry for him in this story. Now, I’m even more interested to see him in the next book.

This was a very quick read and the four points of view were fun. You would think it would be boring to listen to the same event four times, but seeing it from a different set of eyes each time adding a high level of interest.

Club Nexus Narration

4 Hearts

Traci Odom did a great job with the narration with this story. She has to talk from all four point of views. I liked the Southern accent of the vampire. She really made it easy to know you were changing from the different POV.

E.J. Stevens is the author of the SPIRIT GUIDE young adult paranormal romance series, the HUNTERS’ GUILD urban fantasy series, and the award-winning IVY GRANGER urban fantasy series. She is known for filling pages with quirky characters, bloodsucking vampires, psychotic faeries, and snarky, kick-butt heroines.

When E.J. isn’t at her writing desk, she enjoys dancing along seaside cliffs, singing in graveyards, and sleeping in faerie circles. E.J. currently resides in a magical forest on the coast of Maine where she finds daily inspiration for her writing.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.

  1. I like when an author can pull off the multiple POV successfully and not make it boring. All the characters seem very different, which adds much dimension to the story. Great review!

  3. This series sounds familiar to me, although I don’t recognize this cover at all. You have me curious about the different perspectives.

  4. Are there other novellas? Can this be read as standalone? I want to try the series (I know I said I’m getting the books last time. Chickened out! lol) via shorties first see if the writing if my cuppa.

    • Yes, I think you could read this one without having read the other books in the series. The normal main character does make an appearance here, but her POV is not used in this book. I don’t know how many pages to read, but less than 2.5 hours long to listen, so it would be a great way to test to see if you like it. There is another short story, Blood and Mistletoe you could try too. It isn’t as Christmasy as it sounds.

  5. It’s great that it wasn’t boring in a whole and at last we’re not too lost between the POVs, that’s already a good thing. THe idea is intriguing. I know, after all your reviews, I need to try a book by this author!!! I need to!!!!

  6. That sounds like an interesting way to tell the story. I always like multiple points of views as it gives me the chance to get to know the characetrs better. Although I am usually not a fan to seeing the same event from different point of views as it often get’s boring, it sounds like it worked in this book. Great Review!

    • I was neutral on Forneus until this book. I’m now a fan and really felt sorry for him at the end. I’m waiting for book three to to be available on audio (very soon 🙂 ), so I can see what happens with him going forward.
