Kayla Nighthawk, born crippled and orphaned in the theocratic realm of Potemia, defies her society's ban against reading the ancient books on sciencecraft. Her search for a cure for her deformities and for the meaning of existence itself becomes a matter of life or death for Kayla - as well as for all of humanity. This is the history of the next millennium of humankind. An epic tale of technology and the backlash against it. A journey of war, love, sex, revenge, and heartbreak - a philosophical adventure story.

Nihala was a really enjoyable story. Lots of good metaphor. Lots of good everything.
What a blast. Gabrielle did an amazing job narrating too.
The scene where Trickster Jack tricked the Monads. A very sad moment that echoed similar real world events from history.
Nope. First time.
Can't wait for the next book by Scott!
I am musician and mom of several little musicians. Love good narrators. Love good stories. Love Audible.
Yes, just to listen to the narrator's mercurial performance. She must have done 50 different characters. Jim Dale watch out!
I think it would have been best if it had been edited into several volumes. There was a lot of very interesting Alice-in-Wonderland type arguments but the main story was hard to follow sometimes. I wasn't always sure which world we were in; and where the flashbacks began and ended. That was a bit frustrating.
The accents!!! And more than that; the actual characters. She plays young girls and Indian Ganesha gods, and 8 legged Spiders ...
Noooo, too long.
I wasn't sure if I'd like this one, the summary doesn't give it nearly the depth it deserves. This story snatched my imagination immediately & held it all the way through. One of those books where you look at what chapter you're on hoping you're not near the end. When I did reach the end I was satisfied, rather than left wondering & let down. LOVED it.
