After starting this book adventure based on my long drives, it has become an obsession, a method for relaxation and enjoyment.
I really enjoyed the Dark Elite series. Something about boarding schools that always makes me think of witches, cults, vampires, etc. This one captures all of that and adds a werewolf to boot. Lily is such a normally sarcastic teenager that would probably just being hanging with her BFF Scout in their dorm room... But they are not normal teens and they are always setting off on adventures. This adventure leads straight to more trouble and that is where all the fun begins.
I am disappointed that this is the last book in the series. I was really hoping to find out what happens next.
A different Narrator. I read and liked the first 2 books. Then I tried to listen to the third, and because of the terrible narrator I couldn't get through it. I've never had a narrator's voice actually grate on my nerves before. She's nasally, her cadance is robotic, and her words are over-enunciated. And did I mention nasally? Literally painful to listen to. What were they thinking?
Anyone. But some good narrators for teenage protagonists include: Sarah Drew, Emily Schafer, Gabrielle de Cuir, Julia Whalen, Cassandra Morris, Mandy Sigfreid, Rebecca Lowman, Devon sorvari, Justine eyre.
I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
It pains me to give Chloe Neill such a low rating. I think part of this was the narrator. While she does a nice job reading, her voice doesn't match a 15 year old girls and so there is a bit of a disconnect. It wasn't that it was bad, but I found my mind wandering and not that excited to finish. I liked the ending, but the build up was not all that.... Build upy? Anyway. And okay story, but not great
I almost couldn't finish this book because of the narrator. It's a pity because i like the author and the series. But the narrator sounds like a shouting school girl, and that ruined everything for me.
