I was so happy to find this book here! At first I didn't like the dry way the reader read the book, but as time went on I realized there was a darned good reason why.
The story itself was beautiful, and outside the box; which is always delightful. Stephanie's love of looking at humanity from other perspectives is unique, and her love of the supernatural is downright first hand; I'd swear to it in a court of law!
After finishing the audiobook, I found myself wondering if this love triangle didn't set the stage for Jacob and Edward; except in reverse as Wander is not human, and her two love interests are human. She is truly the modern "Queen" of the love triangle, but I hope she doesn't get stuck in the same formula in all of her subsequent work; I don't like to think of her as being predictable. I do, however, love the way she solved the situations in this book, as well as in the Twilight Saga.
This audiobook is worth your while if you are a Stephanie Meyer fan; even if you are not. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and how it was played out. I am very experienced with audiobooks, and I am very picky about what works and what doesn't work. Everything that Stephanie Meyer has written thus far works perfectly in audio!
I liked the story. I felt like it was going to be something epic, it had epic potential, but I just kept waiting and waiting. I was a little irritated that the best, most interesting character just died off so matter - of - factly. I have a few more books in this series to get through, so I will reserve my full take until the very end. To be fair, I typically don't like books that create super human powers, or attempt to shroud itself with a surreal air. This is the first time I have bothered to continue through a whole book...which says a lot because I typically put them down or don't bother picking them up.
