Publisher's Summary

London is a powder keg...and Eliza Braxton is the match.

Imagine a London where magic is real...real, but feared. This is Eliza Braxton's London, and she has always accepted her place in it gladly. As one of the Riftborn, her magic has relegated her to the servant class, where she dutifully serves as the lady's maid in one of the most powerful households in the country. There, she uses her remarkable powers of persuasion to keep Elder Hallewell's rebellious daughter in the path to an arranged match of power and prosperity. Eliza has never questioned her loyalty...until now.

Currents of discontent are roiling beneath the city's surface, and Eliza's comfortable existence is about to be caught up in the tide. A resistance is building, a resistance that covets Eliza's talents above all else. But can Eliza betray everything she's ever known for things she never dared to dream?

Narration/performance — having a hard time with this recording

I was so very excited for this book to come out on Audible. I love this author and the other series. Even pre-ordered and started it first thing this morning.
The narrator’s pronunciation of her words sound like she’s a snake drawing out every single “s” sound. The ends of the sentences are overly exaggerated. I feel like I’m listening to a performance from Harry Potter talking to the slithering snake in the underground. I’m hoping this gets re-recorded so I can listen at some future point. I was able to increase the audio speed and it sounded better but the ending of the words were still the same. I do hate to judge and complain but I’m very disappointed in this book.

Waited so long

I waited so long for this book. I love JA Andrews book and so I will read the book and order the audible version and enjoy the story over again. However, the reader was the biggest disappointment. I didn't like her quiet, long drawn out way of speaking, etc.
I almost returned the book because of this however I loved the story. I made it thru but if this is the reader of choice I won't purchase the audibles going forward.

Why narrator, why?!?!

I was so excited for this audiobook. I love the authors prior books! But however good this book could be is completely ruined by whatever the narrator has decided to do with the way she performs it. So much so that I can't concentrate on the story. Why oh why?!?!?!?! What's with the snake like S sounds and the weird D and T sounds that have a TH sound at the end??? Why draw each sentence out so dramatically? I actually sped up the audio and that helped make it sound more normal... I just don't get why and who would have approved this to be released? I listened to the samples of her other book performances and they are nothing like this. Really disappointing. I'm tempted to return it.

Better with every chapter

Starts a bit slowly but then gets you hooked. Stick with it. Looking forward to the next edition.

Disappointing

Loved all of E.E Holmes books to date and was really looking forward to this one. Huge disappointment. Story was ok but the narrator was terrible she really got on my nerves.
