it was a soap opera with a lot of magical creatures. Not at all to my taste. the heroine had no self-control, no common sense, and had it been a real life situation, she would never have survived to the end.

Acadia, the last human city. For 200 years, vicious creatures have laid siege to the city, leaving the land rough with the bodies of the fallen. For Cojax, training to become a defender of the city is his greatest ambition. That all changes when a girl from outside the city walls appears - from a land that supposedly held no life. Her presence threatens to undermine the entire society, putting Cojax in an impossible situation. He must now choose between what is right and what is necessary for humanity to survive.

What made the experience of listening to Acadia the most enjoyable?

This is seriously a good read.I couldn't put it down. I think it's as well-written as Ender's Game but more in the style of Brandon Sanderson. Nixon is one of my favorite authors, and this is his best work yet.

Conroy's masterful use of language places him with the world's great authors. I found myself marveling at the beauty of his words, even when dealing with difficult content. This book is not for those looking for a Disney experience. That said, it should be in everyone's library, and on every required reading list.
