I love this genre and story line and was ecstatic to see the second book here. Unfortunately, I didn't pay attention to who the narrator was until after I had purchased the book. I was all set to hear Sean Crisden, and it was such a let down. I see that the first book has a different audio publisher so this explains the new narrator. I wish I had not purchased this book. Jeff Gelder's voice makes it difficult to follow which character is speaking at times, not to mention the monotone and dull recitation with a decided lack of inflection at times. Another problem is the difference in pronunciation of the special titles and words used here, but this just goes back to the different narrators. There are also several spots in this recording where the book just repeats itself. This just shows a lack in production control and very poor sound editing by this studio apparently. I have been an Audible listener almost since the company's beginning and isn't the first time I have noticed the quality change when audio publishers change and narrators change. Listeners like consistency and we all have our favorite authors and narrators. All in all, it is a great book and if you can get around the narrator, it is a great book in the genre.
Very good idea, interesting story, but the ending leaves you hating the protagonist. This book could have had great potential for a positive ending, but ends up being racist (towards the super-powered) and lets the protagonist not work through her issues and become a more scarred, hating victim. Sad.
Excellent book, just discovered Harrison and can't wait to listen to the whole set.
Interesting idea, good reader, but the heroine was weak and I wanted to smack her in the forehead a couple of times.
After listening to this book, I was left wondering what happened. All of the loose ends created through the book were never addressed: the murder, family issues, illnesses, threats...etc.
After almost twenty-six hours of listening, the book suddenly ends. So beware of this one if you like resolved endings.
