But when the Prophet decrees that Kyra must marry her 60-year-old uncle - who already has six wives - Kyra must make a desperate choice in the face of violence and her own fears of losing her family.

"[T]his is a heart pounder, and readers will be held, especially as the danger escalates. Williams' portrayals of the family are sharp, but what's most interesting about this book is how the yearnings and fears of a character so far from what most YAs know will still seem familiar and close." (Booklist)
It was a good day when I realized I could combine my two hobbies- reading AND knitting. Audible has seen me through many projects!
I couldn't stop listening to this book. It's well written, well read and surprisingly quite tense. I highly recommend it!
I was looking for a new author as I had already exhausted all of my favorite author's (Meg Cabot, Sophie Kinsella) audiobooks. On a whim I downloaded this one and it was fantastic! When it started I wasn't so sure but I really got into it and couldn't stop listening. I can't wait to find other books by this author.
I chose this book solely because I liked the narrator's work so much on The Help. This piece was equally well done and the story was captivating with a nice variety of interesting characters. Well worth the credit.
I found this book when searching for Jenna Lamia's work. As usual, her performance was fantastic. I was surprised by how I quickly was pulled into the story. The interview with the author at the end of the recording was also enjoyable.
Avid reader, picky about narrators.
A quick listen and a really engaging story. I didn't realize the book is meant for the YA market until I listened to the interview with the author at the end. Well written and well narrated.
