I love reading this series and the audio version doesn't disappoint either. This story has mystery, romance, magic , Lycans, plucky women and hot sexy guys...what's not to like!This is the beginning of the series that still has a satisfying ending and yet leaves you wanting to know more about all the characters.Lizzie is a great heroine, not perfect, but real and so endearing and funny. John is drool worthy and trying hard to be honest with her without scaring her and letting her know how much he wants her for himself. And the other characters are just a great mix of humor, sexy ness, loyalty and friendship.The Lost Library was a good read and is an enjoyable audio book. Kelly does a great job as narrator and both sounds like and has the attitude I thought Lizzie would have.IThis is a different look at Lycans...not wrewolfs...... and magic...and one I thoroughly enjoyed.I did receive a copy of this book for an Honest review.
It is so sad and frustrating when one is presented with a good story but an unsuitable narrator. the narrator sounded like a 17 year old girl who was to be in her late 30's plus the author often describes the hero's voice as low and or deep.... the narrator never changed her voice to reflect the author's discriptions. producers of audio books need to be more professional when giving narration parts to persons who's voices do not even come close to the discriptions of age or genda of characters. narrator ruined the book for me.
The story was great. I am very disappointed that books 2 and 3 are not available on Audible. I hate starting a series then finding the rest is unavailable.
To start, I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I found this story to be captivating. I could not wait to hear what came next. The original take on the paranormal was intriguing. I love the wonder of a "Lost Library" and what will be discovered, not to mention the relationships developed along the way. I am eagerly searching out the next book to see how John responds to Lizzie at the end of the book. I started to say more but do not want to give it away for you. This is a MUST read/hear!!!!
Lost Library starts with Lizzie Smith receiving a magical book in the mail. She spent two years trying to figure the book. John Braxton arrived at Lizzie's door, looking for the book. Without realizing, Lizzie and her best friend Kenna have entered a world where magic, Lycan, and magical creatures exist.
Shortly after, Lizzie is kidnapped by a group of Lycan from the Idaho territory. As John tried to save Lizzie, there is an unknown European party involved. It is no longer a lycan politics but facing an enemy who is interested in seeking power at any cost.
As I was listening to the audiobook, Lizzie lived in a very simplified world until the magical book and John showed up at her door. Lizzie is attracted to John but she has reservation in being involved with him. As Lizzie gets more and more deeper into John's world and that the fact she can't get away from her kidnappers, Lizzie realized that she has been missing her life.
Lizzie also discovered that there are parts of her life hidden by her parents. The story is about Lizzie rediscover her past and finding out that she has been living inside the box instead of taking chances. I like this part because Lizzie is maturing in the story from a timid individual to learning who she really is.
The narrator, Kelsey Osborne provides an innocence to Lizzie. Lizzie's occupation as a computer webmaster, keep Lizzie inadept socially. Kelsey makes John sound more worldly and a very capable alpha-pack leader of the Texas. Kelsey makes Max (although he is human) more of a beta and Kenna, a bubbly companion who tried to encourage Lizzie to go out into the word a lot more.
I was given this audiobook by the author in exchange of an honest review. I was not compensated or influence in writing this review.
