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....

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!

A bonus never-before-released short story by best-selling author Isobelle Carmody. Before the apocolyptic Great White - and the regressive theology that ruled the decimated population in its wake - the city of Uropa is a gleaming metropolis devoted wholly to materialistic consumption.

I kept smiling though out this short story. Isobelle Carmody no only writes a great story but narrates wonderfully as well.
