Story was good, a tad bit, too predictable in some spots and totally unexpected in others. Kiernan sometimes acts a bit too immature and Meghan still needs more character depth. Wish is just the right amount of childish wonder and enthusiasm. It was interesting to find out more of his history and why he is the way he is. There was a good cliff hanger, I look forward to reading book 3.
Meghan Lewis, the narrator, did a great job of reading the characters so you always knew who was speaking with out needing to make exaggerating changes. There was one character who got on my nerves though, he spoke in a slow bored tone, which fit his character perfect, but he was still annoying!
Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
I was not in love with the first book, but I was happy to have stayed with the series. Enhanced the world and fleshed out the characters better than the first book. This was easier to like because the story flowed better. It has a very old fantasy feel while still being set in the present.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Meghan Lewis, who does a fantastic job. She has a terrific pace that keeps the book moving. One of the highlights of this book are the narrators skillful accents. I really enjoyed her work and would love to hear more reads from her.
Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.
I loved this book as much as the first one in the series, Wings of Shadow. I couldn't stop listening and even listened at work a bit! The story picks up about six months after Wings of Shadow ends. Kiernan travels to the Costa Rican rainforest in search of the source of his best friend Wish's magic, which will hopefully save his people back in England.
After arriving, Kiernan runs into Meghan, the American girl whom he fell in love with in the first story before she returned to Portland. Meghan is currently studying abroad and specifically studying the medicinal properties of Costa Rican plants. Their mutual attraction to each other is impossible to resist and she brings out the best in Kiernan.
Kiernan's evil father follows them to Costa Rica and wrecks havoc wherever he goes. He infiltrates the safe haven where Kiernan and Meghan were perfecting their talents. After a murder and a kidnapping, Meghan and Kiernan return to Seattle and discover his father's influence is even there. This is where the book ends. And I can't wait for the next installment!
Meghan Lewis's narration is outstanding. She has great individual voices for each of the characters. Her pace and temperament simply bring Anna Kyss's characters to life. I can't imagine the characters sounding any differently. I truly hope she narrates the final book in this trilogy!
This book was absolutely awesome. I was thrilled with the narration, story and the whole world the author built.
Fabulous characters, awesome narration.
Have also listened to the next book in the series, excellent!!
The narrator does a wonderful job with the story. I loved it in print but was so excited to listen to the audible version. The first book was awesome in audible and I was so thrilled that the same person did this one.
Kiernan is my favorite cause he doesn't realize what a good guy he actually is and I love how protective of Meghan he is
I adore how she does the different voices for the different characters. She brings the story to life
Can't wait for book 3 to see what happens. Even if I read it in print I know I will be getting the audible version for it as I love these books in audio form. The are great to listen to in the car
