Publisher's Summary

Two children from Sierra Leone, Liberty and A’shai, are brought together by chance, only to be forced apart by the most inevitable and tragic fate. Ashley & JaQuavis bring us this classic love story set against modern life’s most horrifying realities.

Liberty is dying of a fatal heart condition, though she desperately wants to survive until her 25th birthday, when her sister has promised to visit her. A’shai blames himself for not protecting Liberty, but all Liberty asks is for A’shai to tell her a story, to help her remember what brought them to this point. He knows that this is the last story he will ever tell—and the last she will ever hear.

As Liberty lies dying, A’shai walks her through their past, reliving their ill-fated journeys through the streets. Their story will take them from an arranged marriage, through Mexico’s drug cartel, child brothels, and hustling in Detroit, to escaping the high-powered heads of LA’s underworld. But ultimately, this is a story of love and redemption that will leave you breathless from the unpredictable and mind-blowing ending.

    "Sad ending... Great love story!!!"

    This story was good...... Very different setting than the usual person of who overcomes turmoil in life. It also show's examples of unconditional love and when you are trully connected with a person and they're for you, you will always crave them and feel incomplete without the. I feel like Shai could've did more to save his love and she was a bit weak and an airhead but it was still a very good story. I loved the narrator too. I think this is a big part in audio books.

    Story
    "I was still crying 10 minutes after I finished!"
    If you could sum up Murderville in three words, what would they be?

    Non stop action


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Ashai. I loved that he loved Liberty fiercely from childhood and stopped at nothing to protect her. Boarding Murderville was his one mistake which both paid dearly for but he righted this wrong even though he put everyone he loved in jeopardy.


    What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

    I love his voice. His inflections and dialect. He is a perfect choice to read this series.


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

    One thing irritated me and that was why didn't these goons put their money in a bank!!?? Other than that the book was an emotional roller coaster. My tears came in the last 10 minutes and would have flowed longer had the Epilogue not been so shocking and violent.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually do trilogies but I'm excited to move onto Murderville #2 and then #3.

    Story
    "Horrible Book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    What a horrible book - I barely made it through the opening. Totally unnecessary language, although considering the story line I should have known better.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger
