I really had a hard time with this narrator, it honestly kinda ruined the book for me. I really liked the story line however. That said, this is about teenagers and the narrator does sound like a teenager so maybe that is relatable to teenagers who listen to this book. For me as an adult it was a negative.

Amber Patterson is fed up. She's tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more - a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted. To everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne - a socialite and philanthropist - and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale. Amber's envy could eat her alive...if she didn't have a plan.

I thought the book started out a little slow but once it got good it got really good. I have to say I did see the twist coming because I had just read a book with an identical plot twist (must be because I use Audible suggested books because you read this, you might like this). That said, I’m glad I purchased this book it ended up being really good. Towards the end I couldn’t put it down, and I love satisfying ending. This book will give you that!

Determined to discover what this means and how to use her newfound abilities, Cyrene sets off for the distant land of Eleysia, an island nation where Affiliates are strictly forbidden from entering. But the journey is perilous, and the destination may mean utter ruin.

My boyfriend and I can never agree on a book to listen to while on a road trip and then we found this! We liked it so much we finished at home in the evenings listening to a little each night before bed. We are looking forward to starting book two on our next drive.
