Be careful who you trust, for even the Devil was once an angel.
My name is Jemma Blackburn, and I have a secret. I know vampires are real. I watched one murder my father eight months ago, and even though they tried to convince me it didn't happen - that I'd lost touch with reality due to the trauma, I know what I saw was real. Hollow Hills is now the place I call home. It was supposed to be my chance at a normal life. My chance to bury my secret and start over. But everyone around me is keeping their own secrets, whispering lies into my ears like promises, and one of them is about to turn my entire world upside down.
I thought I had it all figured out. I thought I had the answers. I thought I knew who I was. The truth is, I didn't even know the half of it. There's a reason these vampires are still after me. There's a reason they will always hunt me. Because I'm not human. I'm the devil they fear and the angel they crave.
Only problem is, I don't know it yet.
Inception is the enthralling first installment in The Marked series. A YA paranormal romance full of atmosphere, supernatural adventure, and jaw-dropping twists that will keep you guessing until the very last minute.

"For a YA Book, I'm Impressed!"
I loved the narrator. She did an amazing job. I plan to see what other books she narrated.
I really liked both Trace and Gabriel. I won't go into details as to why, because I'll spoils parts of the story!
She does a good job with giving a new voice to all characters!
Hmmmm, no, not one sitting, but I did listen to it over 2 - 3 days. And I bought the sequel, which is lacking an audiobook.
Great book. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future!
"good book, horrible narrator"
I liked the story and the book itself. the narrator on the other hand made my skin crawl. if it wasn't for the fact I paid for the book I would of stopped listening. I don't like the way she did any of the characters or how she made them seem personality wise from her different voice tones with them......I wish I had the book to just read myself.
"Good story- narrator ruins it"
She did a good job this book and the narrator is just terrible the voices are terrible on the management
really takes away pleasure
such a great story! I was a little hesitant to read it at first because the description wasn't enough for me. Turned out to be an excellent story and wow what an ending to that book just when things are starting to get good a huge twist comes into play. Can't wait to read the next one
Yes I would I couldn't put it down I thought it was a good read!
It has some elements of other books but pretty much it's a standalone .. At least I haven't read one that's like this:-)
I don't believe I've listen to her read before.
Oh yes there was but I can't see what it is it would give too much away .
I know but two is out and I can't wait for it to come out on audible hopefully soon !!!!!!
"awesome narrator! awesome audiobook! NEED SEQUEL!"
what happens in the cemetery - CHILLS
This was my first time listening to this narrator and I loved her! I couldnt stop listening. Ugh I wish she was my best friend!!!
OMG WHYYY did it end there? My heart was broken at the end of this one! NEED BOOK 2!
"Tried to hard"
Narrator did a good job. Author tried to be elegant in describing scenes and moments and at times it did not work. Main character was overly driven by her interest in boys. After the nth time she mentioned dimples it got old. Story had potential but crammed too much world building and not enough character development into the book. Very disappointing.
"Change Narration Speed to 1.25x"
For those discouraged by the negative reviews about the narrator, she just speaks a little slowly. I changed the narration speed to 1.25x and it sounded great!
Inception by Bianca Scardoni is a tale about Jemma Blackstone, a teenager who spent the first 16 years of her life believing she was a regular upper middle class American. Everything changes when she witnesses a vampire murder her father.
Soon after her father's death Jemma moves to live with her uncle. There she discovers that she is not a normal American teenager - she isn't even technically human! She is a Slayer - a special kind of vampire hunter descended from angels. As Jemma struggles to adjust to her new reality we meet several interesting characters and are introduced to several different sub-species of vampires & vampire hunters.
There is a little too much teen drama for my taste, but it is listed as "Young Adult" so drama is par for the course.
Overall this is an entertaining story filled with interesting characters. It kept my attention throughout. Bailey Carr does an excellent job narrating - she has a perfect voice for the girls, and does a good job with the male characters too!
If you like vampires and entertaining stories without too much gore then this is a book for you!
loved the entire story!! I can not wait to read the next one! I hope she just keeps going with it because WOW!
