Publisher's Summary

Amanda Obermann. Code name Iris. It’s Testing Day. The day that comes without warning, the day when all juniors and seniors at The Peel Academy undergo a series of intense physical and psychological tests to see if they’re ready to graduate and become government operatives. Amanda and her boyfriend Abe are top students, and they’ve just endured 36 hours of testing. But they’re juniors and don’t expect to graduate. That’ll happen next year, when they plan to join the CIA - together. But when the graduates are announced, the results are shocking. Amanda has been chosen - the first junior in decades. And she receives the opportunity of a lifetime: To join a secret government organization called the Annum Guard and travel through time to change the course of history. But in order to become the Eighth Guardian in this exclusive group, Amanda must say good-bye to everything - her name, her family, and even Abe - forever. Who is really behind the Annum Guard? And can she trust them with her life?

    "Great premise for a storyline, weak execution"
    What disappointed you about The Eighth Guardian?

    I don't know what disappointed me more, the storyline or the performance. I read the synopsis of the book and was looking forward to an interesting story. What I got were characters that were thin and overly dramatic, and the narrator taking these characters and embellishing on that drama with her pitch and tone. I will also admit, I only made it through half the book, before I went on to my next one.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm listening to Blood Song currently and am enjoying it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Amy McFadden’s performances?

    I don't think I will listen to another performance by Amy McFadden, her presentation of people was not enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    Just because I didn't like the story and the narrator, doesn't mean you won't. It may appeal to you if you enjoy more drama driven stories.
