Cool story, can’t wait to see it grow.

The story itself is cool. I love the concept of it. I feel like at parts it could’ve progressed better, but still a good listen nonetheless. I can’t wait to see what the next book(s) have in store.

The narrative performance by Steve was great! This guy is hands down my favorite narrator, if you haven’t listened to his work, I recommend you do. The emotion you feel with his performance is amazing!

very boring

I had to return this book after a few hours, it could not hold my attention with it's very slow and predictable world building and the narrator was very bland when he performed the characters.

pretty adult for YA

interesting characters, good plot and very little teenage drama.
is a very interesting world with a rich story...
all in all great fantasy, very much recommend it...

how Steve manages to do female voices better than some actual female Narrators is beyond me, but damn is it satisfying to feel like there is a full cast with one Narrator
