Not a very exciting story line. Seemed like a very young teenagers idea of love. Lots of whining and a not-plausible love story and I'm open to alot. Hard to make it trough the whole book. Really like all of Kiera Cass's other books but this was not to that level!

Before Elloren Gardner came to possess the White Wand of myth, the Wand was drawn to another bearer: Sagellyn Gaffney. Sage’s affinity for light magery, a rare skill among Gardnerians, makes her the perfect protector for the one tool that can combat the shadows spreading across Erthia. But in order to keep the Wand safe from the dark forces hunting for it, Sage must abandon everything she once knew and forge a new path for herself...a dangerous course that could lead to either triumph or utter ruin.

Point of view from another character and at first I wasn't really into it but after about 30 min I was glad I did! It was good to hear more about how all of this came to be, and really liked the new characters.

Elloren Gardner and her friends were only seeking to right a few wrongs when they rescued a Selkie and freed a military dragon. The last thing they expected was to be thrust into a realm-wide underground resistance against Gardnerian conquest. While the Resistance struggles to fight back against the harsh rulings of the Mage Council, more and more Gardnerian soldiers descend upon the University…led by none other than Lukas Grey, now commander of the nearby military base. Though Elloren tries to keep him at arm's length, Lukas is determined to tie himself to her.

I loved this book! I loved the way the characters build and the all twists and turns!
The world and people are painted so vividly that you'd think it was a real place the writer has visited.
The narrator is perfect! Great range in characters and I felt drawn in immediately! Can't wait for the next book!

The world is changing - the government has seized control of almost everything and kids are disappearing. For 15 year-old Wisty and her older brother, Whit, life turns upside-down when they are hauled out of bed one night, separated from their parents, and thrown into a secret compound for no reason they can comprehend, except that the new government is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

This book sounds like it was written by a dramatic 10 yr old girl.
the reading is overly childish, and a bit overly dramatic for the text.
The music and sound effects are really awfully in an audible book.
Might be good for a young teen, but thats about it.
