If you like the film The Skeleton Key you’ll love this movie. I’m sad now.

Excellent story!

At first, I wasn't sure if I could continue listening as the narration of the character Erin is quite annoying, however, you do get used to this as her character. The narrator does an excellent job of so many different voices and characters! The story is long, but because it's a fantasy world I feel it needed to be so that everything about the world could be set up for more volumes to come. I am dying for the next audio installations of this series!

Excellent story with an amazing twist! The male narrator is fantastic however the female voice doesn't match the character in my opinion but it doesn't affect the story.

Must read!!

The first two chapters or so felt a bit vague, but I persisted and I am glad I did. The story comes together very well with the use of a few back flashes. I liked the characters and the narrator was great.

Great story by the narrator is WAAYYYY to giggly.

I read a review before purchasing the book where the writer described the narrator as "play school story time" and boy were they right. She's good for the most part but she has a giggle in her voice at the most inappropriate times. Story was great though, had you guessing until the end!

Excellent story and amazing twists! You think you know the characters and you think you know what's happened but you'll be wrong and it fits together so beautifully! The narration is great and the writing is natural and flows well.

Narrator for Lexie sounds like iPhone's Siri

I really liked the story but the women who narrated 'Lexie' literally sounds like iPhone's Siri. Or when you were younger and you'd type words into the old Mac computers for the female voice to read back to you. The story is good but the writing is high school quality. So many descriptive words are repeated over and over again, such as 'incredulous'. It gets a bit boring when the writer runs out of descriptive words. Also, Lexie is so unbearably annoying, narrator aside, the character herself is so frustrating. Despite the annoying robot narrator I finished the book and did enjoy most of it.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought the narration with the present events told by Heidi and Chris and the past told by Willow was a good technique as it created suspense. Heidi went through a lot of character development/change while Willows storyline provided some good twists. Pretty Baby gives a realistic depiction of moody teenage daughters and the effects of PTSD and abuse.

Fantastic story and narration

I felt a little lost during the first couple of chapters only because of all the complicated words and names for things but as the story progressed I got used to them all and got totally taken in by the characters. Adoja Andoh is an amazing narrator, I purposely look out for books that she narrates because I love her voice and delivery so much. I think Ann Leckie has done an amazing job with this trilogy in creating a believable world and characters. I love the unique quirks like wearing gloves, drinking tea and singing songs.
