I have never heard anything from this author before but after reading the other reviews I tried the book. I listened to the whole book in one day beca..Show More »use I just couldn't wait to hear what happened.
What can I say?! I am attaching quite easily to these characters. This book was told beautifully from the points of view of many. There is an excellen..Show More »t surprise in the beginning and the dramatic tension stayed at just the right pitch throughout the novel.
I was happy to hear more from Rebecca and Makadewa! I am eager to see how that plays out. I will miss Teyas, too and hope to find that she is happy.
I was only confused a bit during a part when Maggie was really angry at her guardian for not telling her more information when she was growing up. This didn't make sense to me because she had already learned how she and her family would have been in danger if she knew more information. I read and re-read that part thinking I might have missed something. Maybe I did. But, Maggie's behavior really annoyed me.
I read the first 1/3 or so on my kindle and then did the whispersync with audible. I wish I stuck to reading with my eyes. I have listened to hundreds of books over the years and I can honestly say that this girls narration was the absolute worst! She did Maggie like a whiny 10 year old! Not how I imagined Maggie to sound at all. All of the Indian men sounded identical in a deep monotone, all of the Norse men sounded identical in a deep Scottish-like monotone.
A great example of the poor narration: She would loudly and animatedly cry a line like: "But, I love you" , followed by: "Maggie whispered". It was so distracting!! That was not a whisper! Poor, poor poor.
Anyway, that is not the book's fault and did not want my rating to reflect the awful listening experience. I can't wait for the next one!
