I was in awe from the beginning. This was one of the best books that I have ever listened to or read. I put this up there with The Hunger games and Ha..Show More »rry Potter as far as story goes. I was intrigued also that the author was not afraid to voice her beliefs of God and not attribute everything to "magic". so many authors are ashamed to create a world where God exists.
I read a review where the reviewer ranted about Katie including God's existance in the world she made in the Gifting and how too many of her Characters had Christian based conservative beliefs. Saying she was "shoving" her beliefs on others... Nobody made you read that book. How many books are there that blatantly deny the existence of God. I say Katie is amazing and an amazing author. that she is brave enough to not care what others may say or think is comendable.
The gifting was a book that I could not stop listening to. I listened to The Gifting and then it's sequel The Awakening every waking moment until I finished them. I couldn't help myself. Katie's masterpiece and Heather Master's voice make this whole series addictive.
My only regret is that the 3rd book The Gathering is not available in audible yet...
When Katie when! How long will you keep us waiting?
There was so much angst and emotion, it was irritating to listen to. Most of the book was how Tess thought she wasn't worthy ect. What little act..Show More »ion and learning we did about keepers and fighters was truly interesting however, if I had to hear another word about Luca or Tess biting their thumb nails I would have gone nuts!!! Don't get me wrong I'm going to read the last book but this book would have greatly benefited with less angst and more action or showing Tess and Luca getting closer and learning their skills rather then the drifting away moodiness that dragged you down.
