From the author of the Chicagoland Vampires novels, a new series about a boarding school filled with something worse than homework. Lily's parents have sent her to a fancy boarding school in Chicago filled with the ultra-rich. If that wasn't bad enough, she's hearing and seeing bizarre things on St. Sophie's creepy campus. Her roommate, Scout, keeps her sane, but keeps disappearing at night. When one day Lily finds Scout running from real-life monsters, she learns the hard way that Scout is involved in a splinter group of rebel teens.They protect Chicago from demons, vamps, and dark magic users. It's too bad Lily doesn't have powers of her own to help. At least, none that she's discovered yet....

The part of the story I could listen to was good. I would probably listen to series with different narrator.
Kevin T. Collins
To name a few that would have made the book better
The narrator didnt sound rt to me. These are supposed to be young teenagers and the voice doesn't fit plus when she is reading she doesn't say the phrases correctly the way it was written. I think the other narrator for chicagoland vampires was much better!! It made me want to listen without being critical. Thx love the books
If your in your teens its a good book. But being in my 60s it was not for me.. The reader was great the story line is very good, just not my thing.
The narrator hesitates in places that make no sense.
Courtney because she is mysterious.

I've enjoyed the story so far and the dialogue is pretty decent. I'm not far enough into the story yet to know if it follows a coherent story line. The narrator is what I like least. I can get past the nasal New England accent. What I can't ignore is the odd cadence and what sounds like an underlying amusement throughout the narration. Mary Kane has a tendency to pause in the midst of sentences in such a way as to remove any meaning from them. She also sounds like she finds the entire book humorous. It's nothing overt, but it's hard to appreciate the serious thrilling parts of the book when the narrator sounds like she's amused by the whole thing.
I'd ask that they return to Cynthia Holloway or explore Amanda Ronconi.
Possibly, but it would have to be very well done - on par with Harry Potter, NOT Twilight.
I don't know.
Book is fine but a very hard listen.
Not pleased at all. Get a new narrator!! Very robotic!!
Not really. I love Chloe Neill's books but I can barely keep up with the premise of this book, the narrator is so annoying.
Its a Chloe Neill book.
Everything! I would give no stars if this review would let me. I don't usually complain about narrators, some are hard to listen to but I get by because I get caught up with the story. In this one I am so annoyed 5 mins into it I can hardly "hear" the story to carry on. I usually finish any Chloe Neill book in a day, two at the most. I have had this one for just over a week and I am really struggling to finish it.
Apart from choosing books by my favorite authors I also pick many of my titles from Audible, Inc. and Audible Frontiers. I must say I was very surprised and disappointed that this audio version is by Audible Inc. I don't think I will attempt the other two books!
I love Chloe Neill but Mary Kanes voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard. it almost rendered this fantastically written book un listenable.:(
