Publisher's Summary

Perfect for fans of Secondborn, The Hunger Games, and Maze Runner, this dark dystopian tale of survival, intrigue, and slow-burn romance will grip you until the very last minute.

My name is Maia Graystone: prisoner, rebel, and reluctant savior of a dying world.

In exactly 552 hours, an asteroid will end life as we know it. Not that my life is anything to brag about. Trapped inside a hellish prison, my days consist of surviving the other inmates and the bounty on my head.

Then a mysterious benefactor offers the impossible: a chance to compete in the Shadow Trials and win a coveted spot on the space station above our dying world.

But the opportunity comes at a steep price. Partner with a dashing psychopath, enter the court that once condemned me to death, survive the ruthless trials created by my own mother, and kill the emperor - the very man who's hunting me.

In this cunning game of life and death, nothing is as it seems and everyone expects me to fail. But they forgot one tiny detail.

Never underestimate the girl with nothing left to lose.

Dare to enter the gritty world of Shadow Fall, where tyrants rule, misfits reign, and antiheroes are tasked with saving the world. If you like enemies-to-lovers romance, high-octane action, and epic themes of good versus evil, you'll binge this roller coaster of emotions late into the night!

I really need book 2!

This is a little different to Audrey Grey’s other series but I loved it all the same. Can’t wait for the next book in the series!

Great first book

This was a very good first book starting a dystopian series. I enjoyed it and was able to get into it pretty much from the moment I started the book. There was definitely a lot of angst in this story but it worked with these characters and this plot. It was very good and I kept on wanting to know more about it. I never wanted it to stop and am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series. The world building is so good and the characters felt very real to me. The narrator did a very good job bringing these characters to life and making them feel even more real.

The best dystopian series ever!

I loved this book- which really surprised me to be honest, because I usually am not kept interested by most books of the Dystopian genre. Maia Greystone, and Riser together assume new identities to try and take down the Emperor. The narrator does a great job individualizing each character and I was enthralled to the last word. I immediately downloaded the entire series and finished it in days. I recommend this book to anyone- even if you think Dystopian isn’t your thing!!

Good start to the series!

The book started off a little on the slow side but really started to grab my attention about half way through. I was not a huge fan of the narrator. I felt she rushed it or maybe it was just her voice. I can’t wait to see what’s next in the series

100 % Angst

This book is very intense . Mama is a prisoner just trying to stay alive . There are many twists and turns in this book and a bit of a love triangle . This is my second series by this author and they both have wonderful world building. The narration was spot on and conveyed a lot of angst .

Maya or Everly?

Listened to this one via audiobook and enjoyed the narrator's voice. The character is spinning but really struggles with who she is ( for good reason). I'll have to pick up book 2 soon! Too many ends to tie up to leave it sitting for long! out of all of Audrey's books, this one is my least favorite, but that being said, I have enjoyed all her books so far, so really even my least favorite gets a solid recommendation from me! pick it up!

One of my favourite books this year

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review. Ignore the other reviews, this is not another hunger games honestly this has to be one of my favourite books I’ve listened to this year. This book pulled me in and made me want to stop what I was doing and just listen and enjoy even though that’s the whole point of audiobooks id you can do other things. 😅 The world that was created and technology was so fascinating especially when you started out in the depths of the pit. The characters were cleverly thought out and each had a purpose and properly fleshed out and meaningful. The plot was well paced and full of intrigue. I just can’t wait for book 2.

Best book I’ve ‘read’ in a long time

Absolutely brilliant, grips you from the start. Great chemistry between all the characters and I just couldn’t stop listening. The narrator is great. Story a bit like hunger games but much better. Can not recommend this book enough. You won’t be disappointed!
