    "Thank You Stephanie Meyer!"
    Overall

    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!
