I really enjoyed the originality of the characters created to tell a star-crossed love story. Taylor's imagination is amazing as she creates a story told between a human world and a world full of magical beasts and angels.
The main character Karu is a tough young girl who travels the world on secret errands. Her transition from a young carefree girl who knows nothing of her past to discovering her true identity was fasinating.
Hvam as the narrator did a wonderful job using various voices for each character in the story. Her transition from a wise old half man, half bull beast back to a teenage girl was execllent.
How much would you sacrifice now to know who you were then?
Just a fun book, this is great for any romantic at heart. The author did such a fantastic job creating these two different worlds I truly cannot wait for the next book in this series! Please continue this series Ms. Taylor!
This book is really great. I loved world and am waiting on pins and needles for book 2. I would recommend this listen to scifi fans.
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
This book is a great surprise. Each character is so unique, the story so engaging. I am listening to it constantly, I don't want it to end. The love story is pleasantly mature in a way that it is lovely to listen to, not explicit. You can imagine their love for eachother, and not have to be told what happens. The language is clean, I can listen to the book on the stereo while my kids are in the room, I can't always do that. I look forward to exploring more of Ms. Taylor's books.
Stick with this book, you will not be diaspointed. Love, Adventure, Twists, new content! Great book!!
Initially I thought this was another twilight'ish book (which I liked but am over it) but it was far from it. The author wove a fantastic story that had undertones of Romeo and Juliet but wasn't so much a romance novel. It was just at truly unique story. It was hard to put down. I kept trying to figure out who Karou was and what her origin was. The end wasn't what you expected but didn't disappoint at the same time! Defintely would recommend.
This was one of the best books I have ever read/listened to! The story is fascinating and the writing is excellent. I also really liked all of the characters, especially the main female character. I definitely recommend this!
Gave a whole week to this book, Here and there trying to engage myself with the story.
It`s not the isn't creative. The universe and the characters are interesting, its just that i`m about to reach the last chapters and she still setting up the stage for some action to happen. Its just boring.
I would not recommend if your are looking for some dystopia, suspense or thriller. May engage teenage better, the ones that are twilight fans.
But if you are an mature reader you probably get bored.
If you like love stories and fantasy this would probably be your kind of book.
Audilbe.com definitely needs to come up with a separate category for romance novels disguised as si-fi or fantasy. If the novel contains a scene in which the heroine is forced by her friends to wear an evening gown that is much too revealing but she looks fabulous in it and then her one true love dances with her, its not science fiction.
