Audible Editor Reviews

Over the opening strains of Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, Jenna Lamia’s sly, high voice cites a passage from the Book of Judges. Soon, Oliver Wyman’s solid, young voice intones the settling of dusk over ancient Mesopotamia. The listener is in for a romantic journey to the long-ago. Written for young adults by Gail Carson Levine - known primarily for her Princess Tales - Ever is the story of Kezi, a mortal, and her love for Olus, the Akkan god of the winds. The pleasant voices of Lamia and Wyman will carry listeners through love, religious conviction, ancient crafts, and plenty of action.

Publisher's Summary

Falling in love is easy...even for Kezi, though she knows her days are numbered. And head-over-heels, come-what-may love is inevitable if her heart's desire is Olus, the Akkan god of the winds. But accepting death is hard, especially when romance is new.

Falling in love is easy for Olus if his beloved is Kezi, a beautiful mortal, a dancer and rug weaver from the city of Hyte. But facing Kezi's approaching death is unbearable. Love brings Kezi the will to fight her fate. Love gives Olus the strength to confront his fears. She questions her faith and seeks truth in dark places. He suffers a godi??i??i??s trial when she needs a champion.

Together - and apart - they encounter spiders with webs of iron, the cruel lord of the land of the dead, the mysterious god of destiny, and the tests of the Akkan gods. If they succeed, they will be together; but if they fail, Olus will have to endure the ultimate loss, and Kezi will have to make the supreme sacrifice.

    "Boring"
    What disappointed you about Ever?

    It was very difficult to follow. The story itself is lame.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gail Carson Levine again?

    I love her stories. This one was lame.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jenna Lamia and Oliver Wyman ’s performances?

    No, thanks.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really

    "The ending"

    Maybe there's more? I thought there would be more resolve. I did like the concept of the story but I didn't like the lack of explanation of why things were the way they were.

    The book itself is great, as much as I remember, but the performances are unsteady.

    I could not get into this book. I tried at least three times to listen to it and could not.
