Publisher's Summary

To keep the people she loves safe, Sara left everything she knew behind. She soon learns this new world is nothing like her old one, and she struggles to make a place for herself among the Mohiri. But it soon becomes apparent to Sara and to everyone one around her that she is not your typical warrior. As the weeks pass, Sara builds new relationships, copes with her new trainers, and tries to manage her ever-changing powers while keeping her unique heritage a secret. Looming in the background is the constant shadow of the Master, who will do anything to find her.

Sara finds herself on a journey of self-discovery that uncovers her true strengths and awakens a part of her she never knew existed. She experiences the delight of new friendships, the sweetness and pain of first love, and a loss so deep it could be the thing that finally breaks her. At the end of it all, she discovers that the one place she was supposed to be safe might not be the refuge she thought it was.

Bad narrator

This is a good series. I have read and enjoyed it in the written form. Now, whilst the young lady narrating has a lovely voice, sadly, she has rhythmic speech patterns, which drive me crazy. For example: Every sentence. Is broken up. Into abnormal pauses. Either for dramatic effect. Or due to. Lack of experience. It gets annoying. Doesn’t it? Talk NORMALLY. We can adjust the speed on our device, if needed.

another dannika dark type author

narrator works well with the character. it's a bit young adult compared to what I read but it's a nice change. the heroine sinks back in to the pity party a bit too much and I have to grit my teeth but then it keeps Rollin along.

Love this series more than what I thought I would!

Any additional comments?

I’m on the edge of my seat listening to book two in this series. If the comments I’m reading about the third book being the best book in the series; than I know it will push me over the edge. This series is awesome! Just when you think things are about to calm down in the story; the author surprises you by turning up the heat!

Thrilling with great characters

This is a great second audiobook in the Relentless series. It has plenty of action, amazing characters and excellent narration. I loved the development of Nicholas and Sara's relationship. His intensity, power and protectiveness is well matched by her determination, caring nature and inner strength. These characters continue to grow in depth and complexity as the story progresses and you can not help but be invested in their lives. The secondary characters also capture your heart, from Sara's werewolf BFF's, to sassy, sword loving Jorden or the reclusive Desmond, they all have depth and you can't help but care for them. I also enjoyed the great variety of supernatural creatures/beings in this story; the author expertly integrated then into the storyline without overwhelming the reader. The narrator did a fantastic job of giving the characters individual voices and she the intensity of the story came through well. This book has excitement, battles, surprises and romance and I look forward to listening to the next audiobook in the series. I received the audiobook at no cost and under no obligation.

Even better than the first

I usually like romance with more way more steam but this is a seriously good story! Great clean adventure romance for teens. (Not my normal genre as I am not a YA)

Loved it!

A page turner with well developed characters and great plot. Loved the twists and turns, and most importantly, a long awaited, slow simmering romance finally being acknowledged. The author gave me everything I needed from this book. Can't wait to begin the next one.

The Riveting Continuation of Sara's Story

Would you listen to Refuge again? Why?

Yes. In fact, I already have. This story is so gripping, sparking a myriad of emotions.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Jordan. She is tough, hilarious, and completely loyal. My second choice would be Desmond... because he is Desmond lol.

Have you listened to any of Caitlin Greer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. She also narrated Relentless, by Karen Lynch. I think that, in this book, Ms. Greer slipped some when transitioning between male characters. Otherwise, I feel she did a good job. I didn't rate her lower for this book because there are so many more characters.

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

I had many extreme reactions to this book. I laughed out loud, felt warm and fuzzy, had my heart swell with love, and ugly-cried. This story had all of the feels.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed learning more about Sara's undine abilities, and the creatures associated to it.

Great series!

I love this series! I had read this book before listening to it and it and I'm a huge fan of Karen Lynch. I really enjoyed rereading it through audible. The narrator did a fantastic job. I think this series is great because it's different from others I have read. Fresh story line and I honestly feel like I can relate to Sara. Thank you Karen for this awesome series!

Good second instalment, narration still horrible

The story progresses well in this book, there are a couple twists that you will see coming a mile away if you’re paying attention, but it’s still enjoyable. The narrator continues to be awful and in this book attempts what I THINK may be Scottish accents - fortunately the Scottish characters don’t feature heavily so if you can stand the narrator from the first book you should be able to make it through

Only 3 stars, but still enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

I believe this series is YA. Unfortunately, the story is predictable. The characters are predictable. There are a lot of very irritating misunderstandings. The narration is disappointing - amateur at best.

At the same time, the plots draws you on and the characters are likeable. No mean feat for an author.

I'm an old adult, recuperating at the moment, and found the book a very pleasant distraction.

Loved it

The second instalment of the Relentless series was amazing. The continuing story had me gripped me from page one. There are new characters, especially Jordan, who I adored. Nickolas was as dreamy as ever and the relationship between him and Sara was fabulous. I spent the last two hours on the edge of my seat. This is fast becoming one of my favourite all time series. The narrator grated on me terribly in the first book but I found myself loving her in this one. She no longer rushed through sentences and I didn't hear her swallow once. I honestly can't recommend this book, and series, highly enough.

Good

Story is great, the narrator is pretty good apart from the atrocious attempts at accents.
