Publisher's Summary

Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she's an Elder, but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control, but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she's betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and doesn't even know his name.

Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky southern girl, or fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is, not what she will become.

As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head win the battle, or her heart?

Surprisingly good

When I first listened I thought "uh oh, another dud" but thankfully I have a personal deal to give every book 1 chapter or 10 pages, whichever is longer. This book then hooked me and had some fun twists. Ending is harsh!! Gotta get second in series :)

A book with no common sense.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

no

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me confused. I just find it hard to believe that a young adult would make every bad choice they could that often. Its like sticking your hand in the fire and then wonder why you got burnt.

Any additional comments?

The book started out fine the turned into a book with no common sense. Or maybe I am wrong, but the main protagonist just spends the hole book making all of the wrong decisions.
I just don't think a 18 year old would be acting like a 8 year old. Not to mention the book is highly predictable. I new what was going to happen way before it happened. The book played like a bad horror movie.

Good story, but just okay narration

I like the story. It was a little different twist on the supernatural tale/love story. The story could have been a little more developed. The book feels unfinished because of the cliffhanger you will see coming.

I almost didn't listen beyond the first chapter because the narrator just wasn't good. Her male characters were just awful and her southern accent sounded like something from a cartoon.

Not bad but not great

This book has great potential but it was very predictable and lacked the climax that I was hoping for. I'm debating whether to continue with the series because again it has potential but I'm also wondering if it would worth the cost....we shall see.. The narrator did a good job, she kind of reminds me of Kate Rudd who in my opinion is a great narrator.

This book is on fire

Literally...
I can't help but love a good, sarcastic, fun heroine and story full of Magic and secrets, and you'll love it too. The narrator does a great job distinguishing between all the characters and you'll be seeing yourself with laughter, that is when you aren't holding your breath or crying.
