Publisher's Summary

In a world struggling back from the brink of apocalypse, life is harsh. But for Elspeth Gordie, born with enhanced mental abilities that would see her sterilised or burned if discovered, it is also dangerous.

There is only survival by secrecy, and so she determines never to use her forbidden powers. But it is as if they have their own imperative, and their use inevitably brings her to the attention of the totalitarian Council that rules the Land....

©1987 Isobelle Carmody. By arrangement with Penguin Group (Australia). (P)2016 Bolinda

    "At Last! The Obernewtyn Chronicles in Audio"
    What made the experience of listening to Obernewtyn the most enjoyable?

    I have already read the series and enjoyed it immensely, but to hear the story from the author's own lips is an amazing opportunity. If you are already a fan of the books, you will love this. For those who have yet to experience Obernewtyn, if you like post-apocalyptic science fiction/fantasy, this will be a great listen!! (And it will leave you wanting to hear the rest right away!)


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the rest of the series to become available! I read on Obernewtyn.net that the schedule has the first book set to be released in audio in May, but here it is on Audible in April! Let's hope the rest come out sooner than the scheduled dates as well. :)
    Obernewtyn – May 2016
    The Farseekers – July 2016
    Ashling – September 2016
    The Keeping Place – November 2016
    The Stone Key – January 2017
    The Sending – March 2017
    The Red Queen – May 2017

    "Brilliant!"

    I really enjoyed this audio book. Normally I'm a bit hesitant to listen to author read books as they aren't usually as good as the professionals. However this is not the case for Isobelle Carmody. Her smooth voice captivates you and she embodies each character's tone wonderfully. I especially love her highlander accents! Can't wait to snap up the rest of the series!

    "Awesome YA distopian fantasy"

    This book was my favorite teenage reads, I'm so glad it is now an audiobook. The world it builds is imaginative and original and this book is only the first of a long series. The author performs this book and she does a good job. If you like mind powers and young woman's quest against persecution in a distopian future then you'll like this book.
