Mediocre, flat, boring
good for not very discerning teenage girls with fixation on the supernatural.
Not even as up to the level as Twilight, which is a very low bar indeed.
The only good thing about this book is the narration, but definitely now worth a credit.
I am a fan of young adult fiction, and have listened to a few excellent ones. This was not one of them. I am shocked that it has gotten such high ratings from other listeners. Though the narrator does and excellent job, the story is pointless, and the main characters are shallow and uninteresting.
I enjoyed this story and the development of the characters. I would put this book in the teen catagory though based on the theme of the story.
I enjoyed the connection between the characters.
Just A little bibliophile!
I love the characters, particularly Ethan and his genuineness. Also enjoy the intrigue and the mystery of him meeting Lena, getting acquianted, and slowly learning more about her, and the world she comes from. It's interesting to have this type of story told from the young man's perspective. Also, because while the story may be a bit leisurely and take it's time to develop at some points, that can be deceptive (leaving one with the
I would have to say Ethan himself, and the way his inner
He really embodies Ethan and brings his world to life, making it feel quite real...very convincing. The different characters are distinguished through his excellent narration and accents. He seems to bring just the right rythym and cadence to the story.
Yes, that was a temptation at many points during the story when I couldn't tell what might happen next.
To me, this is a unique, engrossing story told by way of good writing and even better characters...I will definitely be following each installment of the story! I believe you would become addicted also, and hang on to find out what happens next!
I think that I will order the next book in the series, I did enjoy the book, I'm just not in a huge hurry to download the next.
I found the book interesting and enjoyed listen to it. The writer did a wonderful job in creating the characters. and if there is a part two I will look forward to it. I don't like reading the begining of a series though. it always seems to long for the next book.
Another boring book I can't finish. No idea what this is even about since I didn't have the patience to keep listening. I hate wasting credits.
I wanted to like this book but after awhile I really wanted the book to just end. I didn't like the sound effects and music interludes. The reoccuring song was irritating. Narration wasn't my favorite either but the think the problem was the writing not the narrator.
I bought this audiobook because of the amazing reviews it received in amazon. I liked the whole idea of casters and witches, but the truth is, the story is painfully boring.
According to the authors, the protagonist is a teenage boy, but he could easily pass as a girl.
The book is too long, and I waited patiently until chapter 6 to something happen.
And how about the constant i-can't-be-with-you-cause-it's-dangerous ? OMG, it's a nightmare.
Ok, they are teenagers, but this formula is so old.
And the plot had reall potential, though you could come up with it in fifteen minutes, without much effort.
Don't waste your time on this. Aside from the twilight series, I still didn't find a single supernatural YA fiction worth reading. If you have a recommendation, pleeeeease, let me know.
