I love audiobooks!!!
Yes, maybe right before book 2 comes out, so I can binge. I loved the narrators voice.
Maybe the Lost Shards series by Charlie Pulsipher. It has the same type of rich storyline (more gradual world building) and the innocence of the main characters is similar. The stories themselves are nothing alike, merely saying that if you liked the style, you'll probably like it in both.
Serena, or maybe the queen. They're both pretty awesome.
It's been awhile since I've indulged in a YA fantasy, because they are becoming way too much alike. Dragons Heart is in a class of its own.
I really enjoyed this book, though there was definitely a portion that was heart-wrenching to listen to. The story is well-written and the characters are very well fleshed out. Killian and Serena are both young, but their romance is sweet and powerful and they are far more mature than their ages may imply. Unfortunately, their romance is not any version of simple and only gets more complicated as the story goes on (though there is a brief respite). This is a story chalked full of emotions warring with duty as both Serena and Killian are forced to make excruciating decisions in the name of what's 'best'. While things appear to be going well for the couple at the end of the book, it is clear that there is to be much turmoil ahead. At this point there are many questions yet unanswered and it is very difficult to predict exactly what will happen next. The fact that this book ends in a cliffhanger was incredibly frustrating, but I am most definitely interested in continuing the series!
Karen-Eileen Gordon performed this book beautifully. I think her voice was perfect for the story at hand and it made the story that much more enjoyable (and intense) to listen to.
Read/Listen, Review and Recommend!
I am not a huge fan of Fantasy, not because I don’t like it but because I tend to wander when the author is describing the world and building the story.
But this book doesn’t have that! I was like yaya!
I loved the different characters. This world is different but so easy to navigate. I never once felt like I was confused.
Serena and Killian have to fight so much to be together. This is an incredible tail of fighting for what you want. And not accepting things just because, but fight for what you want.
It’s kind of funny that both species think the same for their Royalty.
I also loved the narrator she brought all these character to life in such a way you want to hear more from her. Very enjoyable.
