When Finn, a 16-year-old Enforcer-In-Training, learns that The Wall built to keep citizens safe from The Wild is really a cage, he starts questioning all he's been taught. Maybe animals aren't as dangerous as he's been conditioned to believe. Maybe his rebel parents aren't the bad guys. Maybe he's playing for the wrong team. Finn must choose a side; either way it will cost him. His family, or his future...but neither are as terrifying as what may lurk beyond The Wall.

Because tales should be told.
Audio is always better. The audio version important for this book because the narrator, Zachary Johnson, embodies the character of Finn. He also does an excellent job with the other characters--most memorably his mother and sister and of course the dog.
Spoiler alert: The book totally changes when Finn realizes that the dog can communicate telepathically. The entire section where he is discovering this is very well-written.
The whole book is filled with great scenes, but my favorite is when Finn is in the recovery room trying to explain to the cute nurse that she is the reason for his high blood pressure. The scene where he sneaks into the office and finds out that his family is on the watch list and his girlfriend's parents are in a work-camp is also intense.
The Adviser is Watching you. Can your Dog Save You?
If you liked the book, "Divergent," or the movie, "Avatar," you will probably enjoy this book. This is a clean, family friendly book. I received this book free in exchange for a fair review.
I really enjoyed the interaction and dialogue with all the animals
Hard to chose
Zachary did a wonderful job with all the characters. He was very believable as Finn, but I especially loved what he did with the deep, richness of Adderick's voice
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
The only thing that could of made this story any better, is if all of the rest of the books were available
The narration was amazing, ZJ is on of my favorite narrators

Sixteen year old Finn has chosen the educational track to become an Enforcer, which in the walled off dystopian society he lives is a sort of policeman of the community – an enforcer of the law. Enforcers are always on the lookout for “agitators”, who the governing bodies consider to be threatening to the status quo. Problems arise when Finn realizes that he might not want to be an Enforcer after all.
Many Native American legends are intertwined in this novel, centering on nature, animals, and the whole concept of the way people and nature work together.
I was not a big fan of this book, because I could not really relate to the main character, and the telepathy between humans and animals seemed strange to me. It was an interesting concept, and I think someone who loves the paranormal dystopian genre would really like it.
Zachary Johnson did a great job narrating. His voice was perfect for Finn, and I would listen to other audiobooks that he narrates.
This audiobook was given to me for free from Audioboom in exchange for an honest review.
Here are some more books involving telephathy between animals and humans:
The Knife of Never Letting Go: Chaos Walking Series by Patrick Ness
Dead Until Dark: The Sookie Steakhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
Assassin’s Apprentice: The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb
Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
Worth the Credit
Interesting and enjoyable twist on a Dystopian society.
Native American legends woven into an really good, entertaining, well written and enjoyable book. A world where people are led to believe that animals are to be feared.
Finn thinks he knows the truth, but he has been lied to. Everyone has been lied to by The Adviser. There are only a few who do not believe the lies they have been told, like Finn's parents. When Finn finally realizes the truth his whole world changes.
Zachary Johnson did a fantastic job with the narration. He has the perfect voice for this story. He really made the characters come to life. He is also quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators.
This is the first book by Eryn Carpenter that I have read, and I will continue with the rest of the series.

I am extremely busy as a Father of 2 going to school part time and working a full time job. I do not have the time to listen to the amount of books I get weekly from Audiobook Boom. However I appreciate the ability to obtain audiobooks from website such as this. I do promise however that once I finish your book I will come back and leave a review.
This is book one of a trilogy - all three books are available in print but I am waiting for the audiobook format. At the end of the audiobook includes teaser of book two,
I thoroughly enjoyed the audio version of Finding Axiom. The voice actor did an amazing job!
At first I thought ok, here we go again with another dystopian adventure, but this one was pleasantly different. I really enjoyed the interaction and dialogue with all the animals.
Zachary did a wonderful job with all the characters. He was very believable as Finn, but I especially loved what he did with the deep, richness of Adderick's voice (that was the bear, right?).
I did not have an extreme reaction to this book. However, I can see one coming in the future, as it did a good job of building up a lot of tension and suspense to spill over into the next installment.
