I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. The world-building within the novel is excellent. It is a standalone book within the series (as all three of the novels are, I have heard) so you don't have to read its predecessor to know what's going on. The romance is subtle most of the time, but it's believable and enjoyable.
The plot is intricately woven at parts. The characters grow and change in believable ways. I began the novel heavily disliking one character for many reasons, but two-thirds of the way through, I learned to understand him and he became one of my favorite characters. There's such a depth to the story that you feel like you need time between listens to unravel what's going on.
I highly enjoyed the voices that Casaundra Freeman gave the characters. Some male characters had similar voices to each other, but every important character had an easily distinguishable, believable voice. Her narration style perfectly fits the first person narration style of the main character Oree.
My one recommendation to future listeners is to look up the names of the most important characters within the novel while listening to the audiobook. A few names were difficult to understand because of their fantasy nature until I saw them in writing.
