    Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students - children of the wealthy and powerful - carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    What did you love best about Divergent?

    I didn't love anything at first! Hated it at first! Had a hard time, still not sure if it was trying to get use to the reader Emma Galvin or what... Towards the end, I decided to buy Insurgent to see if I could really get into it, and I made a GOOD decision. I like Emma and the story has really come together. There was so much information to process through and decipher that it took book 2 to sort it all out. I'm hooked and almost done with book 2 as I write this.


    If you’ve listened to books by Veronica Roth before, how does this one compare?

    I had not listened to any!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I didn't think so in the beginning, I think Emma had to become the story before I really like it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really!


    Any additional comments?

    If you buy and don't really like or just not sure, Read book 2 Insurgent and I promise you won't put it down.

    Sydney Sage is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. In the Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her...But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once.

    When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning. Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times best-selling Vampire Academy series so addictive - this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting....

    Have you listened to any of Caitlin Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    When I first started listening to Caitlin Davies's I didn't like her.. I soon realized she is a great reader. The reason I didn't like her at first was because the reader had changed. In the first book MARKED, Edwina Wren was the reader and I recognized her the best for ZOEY!! I still do! I will buy more books based her as the reader,Edwina WrenA++++++++++!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    OF course!! I listened through book 1-11 as I'm sure I will re-read book 11 before reading 12 in October of 2014

    What did you love best about Hidden?

    Sylvia Redbird has more parts to this book. The twins are no longer TWINS.. there are more things I loved to learn, but I think the reader needs to learn by reading the book and me not telling all the goodies upfront...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zoey is always my favorite, then Stark!


    Which character – as performed by Caitlin Davies – was your favorite?

    She is a better reader for Stevie Rae. Her voice sounds more like she's from Texas as well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When I thought Neferet would succeed in the death of Sylvia Redbird..

    "My love, speak to me. Tell me everything.” Neferet went to Kalona, kneeling before him, stroking the soft, dark wings that unfurled loosely around the immortal. “What would you have me say?” He didn’t meet her eyes. “Zoey lives.” Neferet’s voice was flat, cold, lifeless.“She does.”“Then you owe me the subservience of your immortal soul.” She started to walk away from him.“Where are you going? What will happen next?”

    Would you listen to Awakened again? Why?

    I have purchased the Hard Back for Awakened, after reading the series on my Kindle and now I have purchased the entire collection through book 11 thus far. I LOVE to read PC Cast and Kristin Cast!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Awakened?

    When Stevie Rae tells Kalona she loves Rephaim and Rephaim tells Stevie Rae he loves her. Kalona releases him and Nyx return Rephaim to a boy for part of a day...


    What does Caitlin Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I purchased Audible because when reading it myself I don't pronounce the words the same and I can follow easier listening to the audible reader.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    After reading Awakened I had to purchase Burned right away...

    Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet - which would be a whole lot easier if the High Counsel saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together - if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow.

    The excitement of how they bring Heath back into the story. That even though he's back they don't discard Stark.
