Sixteen-year-old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years. She can't seem to stop herself from closing them down. Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school. Only Kingsley isn't like the other schools she's been to. The students are different. But, then again, so is she. After meeting Kiran Kendrick, the mysterious boy who seems to be the source of all her problems, she is suddenly in a world that feels more make-believe than reality.

Seraph Black used to think that she was prepared for anything. She could last days without eating and she always walked away from the violent altercations with her father relatively unharmed. She survived working at the club and the drive to school every day in her mother's rust-bucket of a car...but it all changed when Noah and Cabe came bulldozing into her life, careless of the precious secrets they picked apart in their quest to take over her world. She was even less prepared for the mysterious Miro and Silas, and nothing could have prepared her for the bond. The connection.

Best fantasy book I've listened to in a while. The narrator was great and the book was nothing short of fantastic. The characters are very well written. I really do not like the female characters they can be grating, shallow and annoying. However, I don't think I am suppose to like most of them.

Love this book and would highly recommend it. I can't wait for the next book!

Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

I bought this book because of the wonderful recommendations and was not disappointed. The story was great and the characters were well developed. My hands down favorite character was Oberon. He is laugh out loud funny! The narrator was also fantastic. I will be actively looking for more of the books he has narrated.
I would highly recommend this book! Well worth the credit!

But this is only the beginning of his discoveries.

Wonderful book. Loved the depth and breadth of the story. The author put great effort into making you feel like you were living the main characters life. It was an amazing book with a great story to tell and with wonderful moral lessons. I think it's just amazing and I am looking forward to sharing this with my fantasy loving teenager. I can't wait for the sequel!!!

The narrator for this book is just wonderful. Her voices for the Characters are rich and she makes the story come alive. I look forward to listening to more of her narrated books.

Richelle Mead is one of my favorite authors. She took a different approach with this book. It is less of a fantasy book and more of a loose take on history. This story seems to combine elements of the Roman Occupation of Britain, the colonization of the United States with a dash of Salem Witch Trials just to keep it interesting. It is definitely not like her other books but that makes it a vert refreshing read. I will definitely listen to this one again. Definitely worth the credit and I look forward to the next book in the series!

Afterlife...just some gothic nightclub where gossip is fuelled by the presence of a rich and unearthly, handsome family or afterlife...the strange place where time seems to stand still and guests feel the presence of something more powerful held within the confines of the VIP. Keira is new to this small, cold town and is running from a past that seems to feast on her darkest memories. She finds living with her sister away from English soil to be just the ticket to the new life she is trying desperately to find.

What was most disappointing about Stephanie Hudson’s story?

She put so much effort into making such a great, strong character and then it just fell flat.
