I was obsessed with this book. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars was because of some of the angst lol and I also did not like the female narrator. She sounded like a robot... I like the male narrator though and now I would like some more Colleen Hoover recommendations please!

Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence, and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty - forced marriages and murder plots - for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall's borders.

This series kept me interested but I felt like it was just mediocre. There was nothing super exciting about it.

After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual. This year, it is my turn. My name is Ivy Westfall and my mission is simple: to kill the president's son - my soon-to-be husband - and return the Westfall family to power.

I'm not sure if I like this book, but I can't stop listening. I immediately bought the sequel after finishing book one though lol
This is probably the worst narrator I've heard on an audiobook. Not that she's terrible, just not as good as the others

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.

This series is absolutely amazing! And the narrator is great too. I did enjoy it more reading it on my own but I can say that of just about any book.
