Publisher's Summary

From one ending comes a new beginning....

Ruby was murdered on Earth 18 years ago and reincarnated on Zadok as a Pastel Zeek named Harlow. To be born at the bottom of her race’s caste colour system to a middle-class family of Magentas has made Harlow a source of conflict amongst the ruling Purples, and a source of derision from all three colours.

When Harlow is attacked by a fuegor on Zadok, the effects of its slow reacting venom triggers an unforeseen phenomenon, and due to the strong connection she had with her former twin sister Jade, her human spirit is unexpectedly drawn back to Earth. Now living a double life, she has plunged into a world of intrigue on both planets.

On Earth, she watches on in horror as Jade reconnects with Lucas, the man who murdered her and got away with it. And to complicate things further, she’s being pursued by Alex, the ghost of Lucas’ twin. On Zadok, she becomes embroiled with Jax, the son of the Commanding family. He’s determined to bring about change to the colony’s colour system, but it’ll come at a cost.

As Harlow mixes with the political intrigue of the Zeeks, will she become a victim of those trying to rigidly maintain the status quo or will she usher in a revolution?

And will ghost Ruby resist the temptation of the handsome Alex or pursue an impossible relationship that could have dire consequences on both planets?

A promising start to a fascinating saga

Pastel Pink is the first book in The Zadok Series by rising author Nikki Minty. First of all, I need to tell you that this saga is targeting young adults and combines beautifully written fantasy with captivating magical realism.

If you want to learn more about the story, I suggest you read the Publisher’s Summary, but I think that it gives away too much of the plot and you know that I never put spoilers in my reviews.

What I can tell you is that this novel features some really interesting characters and their lives on two different planets: those who die on Earth are born again on Zadok, which is a completely new and fascinating world based on a race caste color system.

The audiobook version of Pastel Pink, is exquisitely brought to life by three extremely talented voiceover artists. Khristine Hvam is an award-winning audiobook narrator, producer, director, and voice-over actress. Jodie Harris is an Australian actress, singer, voice artist, audiobook narrator and singing teacher, while James Patrick Cronin is an award winning American audiobook narrator and stage actor.

Each of them are doing their best in order to bring all these fascinating characters and the two worlds to life. Three different narrators means that the listener will find it easier to differentiate between characters and also gives this story a more immersive setting. The narrative experience is top-notch and the production is perfect.

Pastel Pink is well written, fast paced, intriguing, thrilling, filled with emotion and highly entertaining. If you like YA Fantasy featuring colorful characters and a vivid world, you will love Pastel Pink by Nikki Minty. I plan to return to this captivating series as soon as possible and I’ll be sure to post reviews for the next audiobooks in this extremely promising saga!

I hope that you found this review interesting and will consider leaving a helpful vote below. Thank you! Take care, stay safe, and don't forget, always listen with your heart.

Fantasy, romance and mystery

Murdered on earth, a woman now known as Harlow has been reincarnated on Zadok. On this planet, people are segregated into different classes based on their color. Pastels are the lowest and when Harlow is born into the caste of Magenta’s her life naturally became more difficult. As a result of her injuries by a vicious animal, Harlow discovers she can return to earth in a corporeal like form. What she discovers there on earth affects her life on Zadok. Faced with many conflicting emotions, Harlow finds herself thrust into a caste struggle.
Nikki Minty, the author, weaves an intense story building a new world and connecting it to an old one. She takes her time building the suspense and keeping the story flowing naturally. Well-written, the characters are developed and rich. Each plot twist is well thought out and executed smoothly.
The narrators, Khristine Hvam, Jodie Harris, James Fouhey, James Patrick Cronin each give a solid performance moving the story forward with clarity and unique voices for each character. Their performances depended heavily on one another to keep the story clear. Their intonations were flawless and enriched the story.

This is the first book in a series of three. This book has suspense, murder, romance, and more!

There were no issues with the quality or production of this audiobook. The sound was clear and well done.

Ughhh men

Love the voice actors they did an excellent job bringing the story to life.

Spoilers at first I like the main character best friend.then He started annoying me and just flat out dislike the kid by the end. Same goes for Alex. I liked him now I’m pissed that he’s totally okay with putting a murder before his girlfriend and was even blaming her!! No sir we don’t like men who put the blame on the victims. So now all my hope is left with Jack. I really wanted Alex to be the one but there’s no redemption after that. Lol I’m Jack all the way. Can’t wait to hear the 2nd book.
