    "Completely worth the Download!"

    Just finished this book on the way to work.
    The two narrators were spot on in the characterizations. Sadly, this is book one of a series, but the world building is so rich and we are not given much explicit exposition so we are left to piece things out as the characters do, so looking forward to the second book.
    The main characters are flawed and young, but very three dimensional.
    Enjoy!

    "Good Listen"

    This is an exciting story. The narrators were great! I liked how the two main characters told the story from their point of view. I wish Audible had the the next book in the series.
