I'm in my 20s from Seattle, WA. I love reading and knitting in my free time.
The voice didn't always fit the story
I think the story grows on you, however, it can be a bit hard to get into. I received this book for free in return for an unbiased review.
Probably some parts
The beginning, when Ronan explains his origin
Lori did a GREAT job, this kind of novels is very tricky to perform as Lori had to do some parts of the novels from the aliens perspective, which could actually make or break the whole novel. But Lori who actually surprised me with her performance
Not particularly, but as what I mentioned before, I liked how Ronan explains his origin
I recommend this book for anyone who is into Sci-fiction/young adult
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
I wanted to give this a 5 Star rating BUT I SHOULD'VE gave it a 3.5 OR 3 however I HAVE HOPE IT'LL GET BETTER IN THE NEXT BOOK!! I just was confused some....and I'm going to listen to it again just to verify its NOT ME! I LOVE THE PLOT & CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!!! WE WILL SEE!!
I am an avid reader and listener of all types of books. I am always willing to try any book or audiobook.
I was gifted this audio ARC from the author/Narrator for a honest and unbiased review
First let me say Loved Loved the cover.
Xela Culletto did a fantastic job with her debut sci-fi novel. I think it is well suited for all ages. It's a quick and easy listen.
Lori Prince did a grand job with this book.
Overall, a great book and a lot of fun to read. Great cliffhanger -if you like cliffhangers
This book is starts by introducing us to Alex, your average high school girl working a crappy pizza delivery job that leads her down the path of discovering the reality of aliens and her strange and twisted history and future with them. I loved Alex and her dry sense of humor and just the way she responds to situations both in her head and physically. She is pragmatic and a realist and she struggles to find balance between the logical and her feelings. She is forced to make a lot of judgement calls, dealing with issues of ethics and morals, what is right, wrong or mostly "the least wrong" solution.
Ronan is completely enthralled and mesmerized by Alex and the intimate relationship they have reminded me of Twilight. A love full of gravity that's hard to comprehend but like a fairytale we romantics love to indulge in.
I loved the reader. She definitely understands the main character. I thought it was fun the way she did unique voices for all the characters and really possessed their interesting quirks. The only thing that bothered me was her voice for Ronan. It was really hard at times to get past it, but luckily the writing and the voice for Alex made up for it and I stuck with the story.
Would I recommend others to read/listen? definitely yes. Alex is a great character and I just enjoyed following her adventure...
I'm dying to know more about the aliens. I would love a prequel or off shoot story to give more of that awesomeness.
There is a twist you won't want to miss.
I loved the fast paced actiony feel to this story. Everything that Alexandra and Ronan experienced and the whirlwind feel to the story is great. I've always wondered what alien life forms are like and the way this shows them is really awesome, and yet they are complete jerks. I know when we finally meet them there will e some like this, but there's gotta be nice ones out there somewhere. Then there's Lori's performance and man did she do an amazing job. I loved listening to her narrate this story and all the different voices she used and all the emotions she conveyed was just pure genius.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
I was surprised by the fast pace nature of the book. The pacing didn't take away from the enjoyment of the overall story. The narrator was spot on with the emotional side.
The character was written well, This audiobook had a lot of action and so many twists and turns that it kept me interested and wanting to find out what was going to happen next.
Listening to audiobooks for few hours everyday since the start of 2017.
I had received this book for free from the author / narrator / publisher and I'm providing an unbiased review for this book.
From the cover and synopsis provided for this book, it looked like an young adult romance book. And it mostly is. It just has a Sci-Fi base. That said, the story is fast paced and the narrator does a good job of expressing the emotions. The scenes between Alexandra and her father are specially emotional.
I liked how fast the story went, never felt like the story lolled. I think some people would say it goes to fast but I appreciated the no nonsense story telling.
This is an obvious answer for me but the stuff with Alexandra and her father was very emotional. This part feels a little out of place but it really makes me sympathize for the main character. I liked the bit of real life in-between all the sci-fi.
I received this book free for review.
