Publisher's Summary

“Lengard is a secret government facility for extraordinary people,” they told me.

I believed them. That was my mistake.  

There isn’t anyone else in the world like me.  

I’m different. I’m an anomaly. I’m a monster.   

For two years, six months, fourteen days, eleven hours and sixteen minutes, Subject Six-Eight-Four - ‘Jane Doe’ - has been locked away and experimented on, without uttering a single word.  

As Jane’s resolve begins to crack under the influence of her new - and unexpectedly kind - evaluator, she uncovers the truth about Lengard’s mysterious ‘program’, discovering that her own secret is at the heart of a sinister plot...and one wrong move, one wrong word, could change the world.

"Compulsively readable, compellingly narrated, and so full of twists and turns that I couldn't put it down until I'd turned the final page. I loved every sentence of Whisper." (Sarah J. Maas, #1 New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of the Throne of Glass series)

 "A gripping and heart wrenching tale. I was enthralled." (Maria Snyder, New York Times best-selling author)

What a surprise!

This is a fantastic book and was a wonderful surprise. Well written and beautifully narrated. If you enjoyed The Hunger Games, Divergent and Harry Potter you should enjoy this book.

Whilst this book reminds me of the above mentioned books in small ways it is most definitely it’s own unique, imaginative story.

New idea and interesting

It is a YA book but the story line is interesting. I actually look forward to read/listen to the 2nd book just to see how it concludes.

I’d give both the performance and story a 6 if I could

This isn’t a genre I would normally read but was so pleasantly surprised as the story unfolded, I was carried along on the journey of Jane. My only criticism is that the ending seemed abrupt and a number loose ends not tied. A sequel coming I guess.
The reader captured the dialogue, especially of Jane, perfectly.

Great book and narration

Really enjoyed the story and narration. Couldn't stop listening.
It was refreshing to have an Australian narrator. Tamala's pitch and tone are both relaxing and spellbinding. Lynette's story was different to what I usually listen to but thoroughly enjoyed.

Love this story!

I...LOVED IT! This book was one of those that I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I started. I had heard of Lynette Noni's other series, though I've yet to read it, but seeing SJMaas' praise, along with an interesting blurb, and I was all for it.

I'll admit, I rewrote this to be double sure to avoid spoilers, as the first one talked a lot about the characters. That said, this is one of those books that it's best to know next to nothing about so you can enjoy it as it unfolds.

This books starts out with a strange girl who is selected by a governmental facility for a 'program' go one is willing to tell her about. We aren't given a name, so she is called Jane Doe. For over 2 years, she hasn't spoken, or even responded to treatment, evaluation, or torture. In a last ditch effort to get a response, the Director tells her she had 30 days to show improvement, or she will be removed from the system. To sweeten the deal, he adds a new face to her schedule.

I loved the characters, plot, and writing style, but most of all, I love the mystery and sci-fi elements of this story! It's so fun unwrapping the layers of the story, and coupled with a fast-pace and complex original characters, I loved every moment of it!
