    Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse. Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

    Katheryne says: "Beware of the Triology"
    "Exciting dystopian story."

    If you could sum up Under the Never Sky in three words, what would they be?

    vast, menacing, romantic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Under the Never Sky?

    Too many to pick just one and I wouldnt want to spoil it but it has action and adventure all the way through and all the characters are people you want to see succeed.


    Which character – as performed by Bernadette Dunne Flagler – was your favorite?

    I loved all the main characters but am interested to find out more about Roar.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I have done a couple of times.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the development of Arias character, it seemed real as she struggled to come to terms with life outside of her ordered world and she became a really likable and strong character by the end of the book.

    It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death. Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

    Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least at first. Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Through the Ever Night to be better than the print version?

    I read the book in five hours and thought it was amazing. So well written and such a compelling storyline. middle books are often fillers, this was not. it was action packed and full of great stories that will link the two books on each side together. now I get to listen to it on audio which gives me another experience and I love to hear the story with another voice. especially as I'm female and English and the narrator is male and American! brilliant!


    What other book might you compare Through the Ever Night to and why?

    hard to directly compare books but there's shades of a lot of books, Logan's run comes to mind as does a number of other dystopians but for quality of writing, it is way out there.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Goldstrom – was your favorite?

    I'm sure I'm not alone having a soft spot for Roar who gets some real ink time in this book, bless him and of course Perry and Aria are still adorable too.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    a few actually but without giving away spoilers I will choose a benign one. the turtle falcon!


    Any additional comments?

    I very rarely post reviews, a book has to be rather special for me to gush about it.

    The New York Times best-selling Mortal Instruments continues - and so do the thrills and danger for Jace, Clary, and Simon. Can the lost be reclaimed? What price is too high to pay for love? Who can be trusted when sin and salvation collide? Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.

    What did you love best about City of Lost Souls?

    The continued story of all the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Lost Souls?

    Spoilers!


    What about Molly C. Quinn’s performance did you like?

    She is very expressive and her accent is just so cute! Im English/Irish so its great to me!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No it was far too big so I chopped it into bite sized pieces and really enjoyed it.


    Any additional comments?

    I love to listen to a "book at bedtime" and this was a great way to spend a week. I also enjoy teen fiction as its clean enough to be heard allowed and also as we share a kindle account with our children I don't have to worry about my children reading any dodgy material!

    What did you love best about The Nation's Favourite Poems?

    I remember when they were voted for and have to concur with the number one and most of my favourites were way up there.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    John Nettles performing "If" was very moving.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Poetry is very moving and I had to read a lot of it at school so it was great to hear it again, I have the full tapes but having this abridged version for my Kindle is great.


    Any additional comments?

    Its often hard to get stuff from my home country on Kindle so this was a nice surprise. I would love to see more stuff available for Kindle. Real copies are so yesterday, actually I have no more room to store them!
