    The Invisible Order is the first book in an amazing new series by Paul Crilley, skillfully narrated by Katherine Kellgren. Emily Snow is twelve years old, supporting herself and her younger brother on the streets of Victorian England by selling watercress. One early winter morning on her way to buy supplies, she encounters a piskie—a small but very sarcastic fey creature that has been cornered by a group of the Black Sidhe, piskies from an opposing clan.

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good, the performance was very good, but the author just seemed to pick a place and stop. Clearly it's a series, but I felt that it came to a screeching halt at an awkward place that left me with more questions than resolutions.

    With the help of Rondo's seven best witches and wizards, their friends have made plans to combat attacks of the Blue Queen. But it soon becomes clear that defence is no longer enough. The queen has a dragon on her side, and is plotting a terrible revenge on all those who have defied her.

    Although I liked the first two Rondo books, I was disappointed with this one. It just went on and on and on without seeming to go anywhere, and I finally turned it off without finishing it.

    The reader and sound editing was, frankly, awful. She read too slowly in places, some of her characterizations were downright annoying, and mouth-noises and pauses were not edited out.

    Perhaps a different performer could have made a difference, but three quarters of the way through, I found myself not caring HOW it ended as long as it ended.

    When Alex finds out he is Unwanted, he expects to die. That is the way of the people of Quill: Each year all the 13-year-olds are labeled as Wanted, Necessary, or Unwanted. Wanteds get more schooling and train to join the army. Necessaries keep the farms running. Unwanteds are set for elimination. It’s hard for Alex to leave behind his twin, Aaron, a Wanted, but he makes peace with his fate - until he discovers that instead of a “death farm”, what awaits him is a magical place called Artime.

    This was a great book! I didn't want it to end! The performance was great, the story was colorful and creative and evoked a lot of thought and emotion. Heavy subject handled beautifully.
