Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at worshiping, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules - but none of that matters anymore. The rules are changing. The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans. Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out - until she doesn’t, and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos.

Based from my title, I have said it all.
Longer-ish version. Every book I kept listening, it just keeps getting better. By far Book 3 is the best. Cant wait for Book 4 & 5. I am sure they will be even better and the narrator is awesome as usual.

Hi, I'm Alexis Delaney. I'm your average 17-year-old girl. Except I can see the dead. And talk to the dead and help them move on. So...okay, I'm not your average 17-year-old girl. Right now, the Veil is shut off, and the Way is closed. Which means the dead can't move on, so, they are camping out on my lawn. I'm trying to open the Way, juggle school and, well, deal with my feelings for two of my best friends.

I will be waiting for Book 4, please let it be soon. Also, please never change the narrators.

Willa Knight: Dweller? Bad-ass? Notorious pet to five magical beings? In Blesswood, there are rules, and someone is trying to teach her how to follow them. The only problem is Willa. Which shouldn’t be anything new, since she has been a problem since birth — something her pseudo-sister Emmy would agree on. So it definitely shouldn’t be new, but it is. Because things are starting to happen that have never happened before. Things are starting to get chaotic.

Book 2

In my opinion, I think it is even better (well duhhh). Because we are starting to uncover what Willa really is. Was totally hook, I listened to it over and over again.

On top of that, besides uncovering Willa each books (3 more books left to go) concentrated on different guys, hence, the colour of the books

I have to give credit to where credit is due, the Author and the narrator. It was awesome to listen as well as the characters was so believable.

My name is Alexis Delaney, and I'm your average 17-year-old girl. Except I'm a Necromancer. Which means I can see the dead, talk to them, and help them move on. Well, I used to be able to. Someone has sealed the Veil. Now the dead are stuck here. And with the extra energy floating around town, the ghosts are getting stronger. It's been two months since I came to Spring Mountain to live with Uncle Rory. And the guys, my five best friends, have done everything they can to help since.

Book 2

I love the long hours listening to the story. I so do not mind Book 3 and the author's future series to be over 10 hours long.

So Book 2 is a slow build with Lexi dealing with the veil, I personally like it because it leaves more story time with Lexi and all the boys.

Based from the summary we all know the boys have girlfriends now. (SPOILER ALLERT) So there lies the drama, it goes from one guy's girlfriend to the next. The drama was frustrating to listen not because the author or narrator did anything wrong. It was frustrating cos I wanted to punch some of the boys's girlfriend (I know it is just a book) and Lexi having to deal with the girls drama all on her own.

Although we know the books are majority based on Lexi's POV but at the near ending of both books, the author shows another POV from the guys. I like this kind of writing because it shows us more inside to what the boy(s) are thinking.

On top of that, Lexi also have to deal with the souls who are getting stronger. For a 17 year old girl having to deal with so many stuff and in Book 1 shows us Lexi had to be a grown up cos her mother can't take care of herself, so Lexi had to be the adult. Which makes her very mature for a 17 year old.

Anyway, I seriously hope Book 3 will be out ASAP please. I am looking forward to my next hit.

Lastly, I must show my appreciation to the narrators AMAZING JOB, made me so hook into the story.

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar. He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out. When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight -- telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass. You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend-smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married. He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done.

I thoroughly enjoy Vi Keeland's book.

I usually purchase the author's book when they have been released, I just read the summary / story and I will purchase them.

I am familiar with the narrators (Love Both Narrators) which made it an easy decision for me just purchase.

Hi, I'm Alexis Delaney. I'm your average 17-year-old girl. Except I can see the dead. And talk to the dead. And push them away and, well, help them move on. For years I've been struggling to survive the souls still roaming around. The shitheads always seem to find me. Moving from town to town every few months never helped either. More dead just always find me. But things are changing for me now. I'm moving in with my uncle Rory and cousin Tara. I'm finally going to be able to do normal teenage stuff I've been missing out on. Right?

I really love this book, from my title already know I love it.

Once I start listening I could not put it down and again (the title) could not get enough of this book.

I am so happy book 2 and 3 are coming out soon. Already pre-ordered book 2 (CANT WAIT). Also, I visited the author's website to see how many chapters the author is planning to write, and lucky me 15 Chapters!! Trust Me I am getting them all, don't doubt me.

Please B. L. Brunnermer is your reading this, I hope:
1. You make all 15 chapters available for me to purchase & listen; and
2. Never ever EVER change the Narrators.

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods. At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won't ever be forced to present herself to them... Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world - a position that she definitely did not earn.

I wasn't really sure about this book at first, after going through some reviews glad I bought this book because It was worth it. I can't wait for the next four books cos I am already addicted. While listening, I literally almost choke from how funny it is.
Don't ever change the narrater, she is perfect and she made the story come alive.

It has been awhile since I decided to actually write a review, I only usually rate the books I listen. And I hope "Ann M. Noser" sees this review so she can release her 2nd book soon!!! (I know there is book 3 too)
I absolutely love the story and when you listen all the way till the end its like...I want more. Cos the story can't just end like this. I listened to a few books with somewhat the same story as this book, but what made this book special is the main character played around with witchcraft, just so she could stop feeling guilty and what she got is totally not what she expected to get.

I got to rate it here...
Ann M. Noser - 10/10
Caitlin Kelly - 10/10

Both did amazing jobs!!

Vanessa Mazur knows she's doing the right thing. She shouldn't feel bad for quitting. Being an assistant/housekeeper/fairy godmother to the top defensive end in the National Football Organization was always supposed to be temporary. She has plans, and none of them include washing extra-large underwear longer than necessary. But when Aiden Graves shows up at her door wanting her to come back, she's beyond shocked.

I literally re-listen to this book over & over & over again. Usually, after re-listening about once or twice I got bored. But this book in particular, I never got bored, I think I re-listen to this book about 8 times and I still have not gotten bored yet.

My money was really well spend.

Like many other narrator they are good (very believable) but after listening to so many audiobooks, Callie Dalton narration does not bore me...

Looking forward to more Mariana Zapata books & Callie Dalton narration.

From all the comments I read I am 50/50 when it comes to purchasing this book.
So in the end, I actually bought it.

We all love Chris in book 1 and thought book 2 was going to be even better. In a way, the whole story is actually even better, because we get to see the whole families progress. On the other hand, why we think this book is bad because of Chris's attitude towards his mate.

I won't lie saying I am not pissed listening to the story because I truly am MAD at Chris and his treatment on Isabella. One thing we can learn from this story is we can have expectations but having "too high of an expectation" on either someone or some situation isn't good. Because in the end it never happens the way you expects it and it will hurt your feelings.

I also realise instead of explaining one by one, they just jump through hoops with Isabella and to me personally it is a really horrible way to explain things. Besides that, I get it that he is worried for his family cos he loves them so much but COME ON!!! If I was in Isabella situation I would have the exact same reaction - confuse & mad as hell. But maybe not coward down to a point of losing my dignity.

Also keep in mind that everyone is different. Some people pick things up quickly and some slow. And some people are good in one thing and suck at the other or multiple things, its just the way it is. It can be frustrating but slowly (not at a snails pace) with patients, sooner then you know they get there. - this is me defending Isabelle, as part of my personal experience.
