I could not stop listening. I was shocked at all the twists and turns and mesmerized by the characters.
It was intense it talked about switching babies at birth and how it affected the Trill community.
Wendy was my favorite because she wanted to change how the Trill lived and worked together.
She was a good reader with voice control on all the characters
When Wendy saw her brother for the first time and found out he was a Main Squeek in the home of her Mother
As YA books go, this one is good. I like it well enough to pick up the next book in the series.
The way Wendy keeps trying even though life appears to have failed her many times, beginning with her nutsy mother. On the whole, I was not enamored with Wendy, but hopefully she matures in subsequent books.
Therese Plummer is a good narrator. She helped the story come alive. I would like to listen to her read other books.
The story was interesting enough that I finished it, and will probably catch at least the next sequel, but I did not care for Wendy. She was too moody, shallow and changeable for my tastes.
This is not one of those Young Adult titles that crosses over well for adult readers. Although it has paranormal characters, it's basically boils down to a flimsy romance and doesn't have much to really grab an adult reader's attention and hold it.
Good story coupled with an easy listening performance.
The naming ceremony was so exciting I had to rewind and make sure I didn't miss something.
I become a successful multi tasker listening to my favorite books. Therese Plummer is very easy to follow and understand.
Makes you root for the bad guys
My son Noah set up my account But my name is Robin and I read like crazy, I am either reading a book or listening to one. Audio Addict!
I usually dont listen to books twice. but i might when #3 comes out and listen to the story line all together.
When she goes to find her brother matt. and when she kissed finn. rooting for those two.
She is an excellent reader, ALL authors should get her to read their books. She is amazing, one of the reasons I choose the book. It can be a great book but if you cant stand the reader it wont get listened to. You forget that there's ONE PERSON READING THE BOOK AND REALLY GET CAUGHT UP IN THE STORY, EVERYONE COMES TO LIFE WITH THERE OWN VOICE.
Just made me smile and kept me guessing. Just when you think you have figured out the way things are going to play out , something else changes and you have to keep listening!! good thing i listen while doing house work or nothing would ever get done.
Good story, great reader, bring on number #3 and keep the good books coming!!
I've never read one of Amanda Hocking's novels before, and I must say that I really enjoyed this one. Although there are some common romantic themes which tend to dominate all gothic novels these days, this one at least deals with a fresh variety of beings from a unique society that has not been done to death in the mould of vampires and werewolves. Theresa Plummer does a competent job with the narrative and it kept me interested and entertained.
The performance of the story was excellent. Unfortunately, I did not like the book. I don't think it would have made a difference for me if I read the physical book or listening to it on audio.
Having enjoyed so many books meant for teens/tweens (Riordan, Buckley, Rowlings), which have successfully bridged the generation gap and garnered significant adult followings, I gave this one a try. I can see where an 11-13 year old girl would enjoy the story, but it is so specifically tailored to it's intended audience that it gets carded at the gates to the older side of the gap and can't get in. However, if I were an 11-13 year old girl, this would be a complete rave.
