Publisher's Summary

Monsters, gods, and mayhem....

Police Chief Delaney Reed can handle the Valkyries, werewolves, gill-men and other paranormal creatures who call the small beach town of Ordinary, Oregon their home. It’s the vacationing gods who keep her up at night. 

With the famous rhubarb festival right around the corner, small-town tensions, tempers, and godly tantrums are at an all-time high. The last thing Delaney needs is her ex-boyfriend reappearing just when she's finally caught the attention of Ryder Bailey, the one man she should never love. 

No, scratch that. The actual last thing she needs is a dead body washing ashore, especially since the dead body is a god. 

Catching a murderer, wrestling a god power, and re-scheduling the apocalypse? Just another day on the job in Ordinary. Falling in love with her childhood friend while trying to keep the secrets of her town secret? That’s gonna take some work.

Great story, not a fan of the dramatization.

I really enjoyed the story, but much prefer a single narrator. Khristine Hvam does a great job, Graphic Audio is very, busy (?) all the music and sound effects are very distracting.

Meh

Another heroine whose positive qualities are overshadowed by her need for a man. GraphicAudio puts on a great performance, but I wish the story and main character were better.

meh

enjoyed the world building felt the main character could use a little brain power. was very predictable had it figured out a quarter of the way into the book. will not be continuing the series. the only thing that made the stand out was the graphic audio cast they ,as usual ,were amazing.

Full cast fun

I admit to being wary of this audio book. I only discovered the author Devon Monk in an anthology Dirty Deeds and was sufficiently intrigued by the premise of Ordinary to hunt down the series. I hadn't came across GraphicAudio before but the cast were amazing, giving great performances, well acted and engaging. I wasn't sure about the music but once you embrace the concept that it's a 'movie in the mind ', this is great fun with the sound effects adding to the experience. I like the concept of a town where gods of varying religions can vacation, laying down their powers to become mortal for a while . I likethe concept of the sisters being law enforcement / guardians. just a pity that the main character's brain turns to mush every so often especially in respect to the potential love interest.
