In the dictionary, next to the word "bibliophile" there is a picture of me... Ok... it's my dictionary... and I put the picture there.
It could very well be that I so love the "Hollow's" series by Kim Harrison that I found myself just a tiny bit disappointed at spots in this book. BUT, Dawn Cook's ability to write characters that you can both love and want to kick in the pants definitely made this an enjoyable story. It may have been better if the cover had not so clearly stated that Dawn Cook and Kim Harrison were one and the same. However I might not have bothered to listen to the book then. The story was entertaining enough that I'll be sure to check out its sequel.
this is a ok fantasy sometimes a bit predictable but its interesting enough for the first book in a series i would get the next

This is an original and entertaining start. There were a few points that I can't figure out. They Felt a little rushed...but it wasn't enough to keep me from thoroughly enjoying tis ride. I find myself looking forwards to the next one already!
That's my biggest worry for teen books, is it going to feel like twighlight? All pining, longing, misunderstood, you know, teenage hormones. But it wasn't at all. It held my interest all the way through, and I just bought the next book.
Nice low timbre with a distinct variation between characters while remaining comfortable
Alissa and Strall travel to The Hold to find the book First Truth

Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
This is a great start to a new series. An interesting circumstance when a mother feels she has to send her daughter away from the safety and comfort of their home to embark on a quest to find her true calling and capabilities. The story has a lot of unfolding chapters for the main character. Her luck brings her a very loyal, traveling companion and they both have to be smart to avoid entities that would wish to harm them.
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
I liked this one from the start of the story and enjoyed it all the way through. A nice simple but entertaining story.
The idea for this story is a good one. A curious, reluctant young lady, a tense relationship with a fellow traveler who happens to be a young man, and magic! yes, magic! But the story is plodding and kinda lost my interest. It feels like cool things should happen any time, but it keeps slipping through your fingers. Ah well.

I liked this book enough to continue with the others in the series. The narrator has a quirk where her voice goes up and then down at the end of sentences and on certain words. It can become annoying at times but I enjoyed the story and plan to continue with the series.
