The Amulet: A Faedra Bennett Custodian Novel, Book 1 | [Alison Pensy]

The Amulet: A Faedra Bennett Custodian Novel, Book 1

To Faedra, faeries were nothing more than the figurines she collected and displayed in her curio cabinet. She was in for a surprise. Faedra had no idea that faeries controlled nature, and with a book no less. Nor did she know that her ancestors had protected an ancient fae amulet for thousands of years. An amulet that, if ever was reunited with the book, would give the wearer power to control the weather, too.

Publisher's Summary

To Faedra, faeries were nothing more than the figurines she collected and displayed in her curio cabinet. She was in for a surprise. Faedra had no idea that faeries controlled nature, and with a book no less. Nor did she know that her ancestors had protected an ancient fae amulet for thousands of years. An amulet that, if ever was reunited with the book, would give the wearer power to control the weather, too. She didn't know all this because the one person to teach her died when she was just six years old. Well, now it was time for her to find out....

A letter from the grave reveals her true identity the day of her 18th birthday. But she barely has time to digest the revelation when she is plunged into a fight for her life - and a fight for all mankind.

    "Adorable Modern Fairy Story!"
    Would you listen to The Amulet again? Why?

    Yes! It was such a pleasure!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Faen. He's both sexy and honorable.


    What does Martha Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Loved her British accent!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    This modern fairy story by Alison Pensy is adorable! Faedra Bennett, who lives with her father in an English cottage, discovers something life-changing about herself on her eighteenth birthday, including the fact that her best friend--a dog that arrived during her mother's wake eleven years ago--is not an ordinary dog! He's her shape-shifting guardian, Faen. And yes, he's sexy, strong, and honorable and already knows Faedra inside and out by the time he reveals himself to her. Now it's her turn to get to know him and her new role as custodian to an important object that is the key to saving her world and Faen's.

    I loved every minute of it and can't wait to read the next book in the series!

    I am a elementary school teacher. I spend so much time in my classroom so I use my non-student time to listen to books that I love so much. I love to read and this allows for me to be able to keep up with my books.

    "A must listen for Fantasy Fans!"
    What did you love best about The Amulet?

    As a fan of 'The Amulet' and the companion books 'The Emerald Staff' and 'The Cypher Wheel' I greatly anticipated this audiobook. I usually won't listen to an audiobook until I've read the book first. With The Amulet, I've read through the series 3 times before the first installment was release on audiobook.

    I'm one of those people that either loves or hates an audiobook. I hate when a narrator reads the book as if it were a takeout menu. I much prefer the narrator to read it as a parent would a book to a small child. I want different voices and clear emotion. With this book, I got just that. Martha Lee's charming British accent lends authenticity to the quaint English setting. She seamlessly transfers from character to character. Each voice has unique tones, inflections and accents. She brings a new perspective with her narration. Her interpretation of Alison Pensy's work adds a dimension beyond the written work. Her ability to verbally convey the emotions of the characters allowed me to sit back and really listen.

    The combination of Alison Pensy's excellent writing and Martha Lee's narration, The Amulet will become one of my go to audiobooks. I would recommend this to anyone and ev
