I really love stories about angels and demons. I can remember one year looking for every angel/demon audiobook I could find. At the time I found every..Show More »one I could and went on an angel and demon binge. Then I couldn't find anymore and I felt as if I was going through withdrawals. I wish this story had been available at that time. I was fortunate to have stumbled across this audio and the others that go with this story. I absolutely LOVE this story!
Author Lola StVil has written a brilliant an absolutely a wonderful story. The characters are fun, and you find yourself bonding with them almost immediately. I love all the details she included in this story like snaps, ports, Samson string, holders, and so much more. Lola did a perfect job planning what she wanted the readers/listeners to read or hear. The story is especially fascinating and you cant help but become immersed in the story.
Emmy Baxter is a fifteen year old girl, a mortal girl. She lives in New York City and believes she's a product of rape. She attends the Luingston Academy on a partial scholarship. My heart aches for Emmy but others as well. Emmy ends up falling in love with Marcus, the head guardian angel. Lola has written the story to where Emmy never seems to get what she wants. Emmy does have a lot of pressure and commitments she has to uphold as do the angels.
I also love the demon angels, such as Rage, Chaos, and the others even if they are trying to kill the guardians, the humans, and Emmy. Don't get me wrong I do feel Emmy is extremely strong for a fifteen year old mortal girl. I do think she does ask too many questions, puts her self at risk, and causes problems for the guardians. I love the teenage angels, Marcus, Rio, Jay, Ameana, who can be a real b.... most of the time but she has her reasons and then there's Miku, who we find out more about in book 3. Miku and Rio are twins, teenagers, and also guardian angels. They love each other because they're twins and among other reasons. Once again, Lola StVil has created a wonderful series about angels, demons, a sage, and wow, so much details that you cant stop until you finish the story but then you'll immediately start book two.
The narrators Jennifer O'Donnell and Adam Chase did an outstanding job with their performance of this story. Although, there are times that I feel Ameana's voice is to deep, sort of manly but other than that, it's perfect. The two worked great together and you can tell when you listen. You really will enjoy listening to this story and you're definitely missing out if you don't. The two narrators really shine with this story and the accents of all the characters are extremely enjoyable to listen to.
For Lola, I hope one day you get a chance to read this. I want to tell you to reach high because your stories are worthy of a great publisher, maybe Harper Collins. I think that publishing company is a great one. I've listened to the first three audios that you've written. I must say they are worthy of being published. I can't wait to listen to book four. I am looking forward to it and I cant wait.
I don't understand the reviews from people but I guess I'm not them. I know a great story when I listen to it and maybe those reviewers should take up..Show More » listening if they cant understand what a good story is by reading it. When you listen it takes on another world as if you're really there. I just don't get it because we definitely cant be reviewing the same story.
Lola StVil created another wonderful story and its written to pure perfection. I feel its somewhat original because of the human and even the angels somewhat human feelings. I love that and its nice to relate to. The characters in the Fallout makes me love them even more. I still am having trouble liking Ameana and her tendacies. Yes, she's hurting but she's still being mean of loosing Marcus to a human. Emmy is still being protected by the guardians and she is strong minded and overall strong for a young human girl, Overall, Emmy is strong and loveable.
Lola creates a hide and seek sort of story with good vs. evil. The Guardians are sent there to look for something called the triplex and prevent humanity from being destroyed and Emmerson plays a huge part in this much larger than anyone knows. Marcus is still being told by the Sage that he has to leave Emmy alone because if he doesn't they would fail their mission. Marcus and Emmy continue their relationship. I can understand why Ameana acts the way she does because she's with them daily and even has to guard Emmy.
This story left me with my heart aching, jaw dropped, and immediately downloading the third audio. Lola absolutely left me an emotional wreck with this story. Trust me, it was magnificent because that's how real her writing feels. She's an excellent author and she picked a great narrator to tell her story. Lola has such a vivid imagination and amazing talent that shows in her writing and someone should take notice.
When it comes to narrator Jennifer O'Donnell I must say she's extremely gifted and I'm sorry to say she doesn't need another narrator working with her because she's that darn good. You don't need a male for the male characters or vise versa. If the narrator is talented enough they can distinguish each character and Jennifer does an amazing job doing this. Jennifer kept me immersed in this story and on the edge of my seat. Wonderfully written and perfectly performed. You cant go wrong with these stories and the audio versions are mind blowing, I highly recommend you get these audios today!
