This was a surprise. When I started I didn't had an idea on what the book was about, but as it unfolds it described an interesting distopia world. At the end I liked it. The only reason I took one star off es for the slow begging.
"Another amazing world to get lost in!"
What an incredible story! I loved everything about it. The characters are full and exciting, the world to brilliantly described that you can't stop reading! Now the wait for the next book!!!
Wonderfully developed characters with a strong being for a new series. Can't wait for the next one. The narration is strong and well done also.
I really like the story, and the performance. The writing was pretty weak, and the plot was so loaded with estrogen and liberalism, it's like the author forced it. This has the potential to be the next Lord of the Rings, or the next Harry Potter, if she can quit loading it to the eyeballs with silliness.
"Wish it was better"
I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone I really want to like this book too.
"Narrator terrible, but the story is awesome"
Caitlin Davies reads this book like a robot. Her tone is monotone. The story is really good. Cast has created a very interesting new world . The characters are likeable, unless they are meant to be unliked. I look forward to the next book in the series, but I will be buying a hard copy rather than audible.
Couldn't get past the crazy-making monotony in the ridiculous dialogue between characters. So frustrating and poorly written
"Loving the new world"
So far I'm loving the story. Love the canines and moon women. Would have liked more of the skin stealers and a deeper glimpse into the apocalypse that led to this society but overall another smash hit for Miss P. C. Cast. I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the reader her timing and pronunciation are off putting.
