I don’t usually take the time to write reviews but I am hoping this will help others make a good choice on if they should or shouldn’t get this book. I really enjoyed this story but it was so hard listening to it. It sounded like my grandma was reading me a Romance novel, there was no real emotion in it. It was so dry and annoying. If not for the story plot I would have asked for my credit back. Seeing as the whole series is read by the same person I will save my ears and read the books to myself. I’m sorry if that sounded harsh but in my opinion save your credit and buy the book.

When Grace Andreas's sister, Petra, and her husband are both killed, Grace inherits the power and responsibilities of the Oracle of Louisville, as well as her sister's two young children - neither of which she is prepared for.

I don’t normally write reviews but I had to write this one. I simply love this series. And I loved Grace and Khalil chemistry. I love every book in the series so far, but this one is on my top 10 favorite books list.
Stephanie Eastlake does a fabulous job in bringing the characters alive. She does a great job of connecting the listeners with a great story.
Thanks for that.
If you liked book 1 you will love this one too. If you haven’t picked up one of the books in this series yet, Make sure to read all the books in order as this is not a stand alone book.
Can’t wait for the next one happy reading/listening all.

I really enjoyed this story. and I enjoyed listening to William Defris's narrating. the story though predictable was very cute and had a heart warming effect for me.
I loved that Julian was able to stand his ground against "papa" and was able to win over Camile.

She must now make a choice: Rebuild her life in the human world with the man who saved her, or live with Justus and learn how to use her extraordinary gifts. Justus has sworn an oath to protect her life, but can he guard her from the one man who has a right to claim it?

I was captivated from page 1 Dannika Dark is a powerful author who had me experiencing an amazing roller coaster ride from start to finish.
I am not a reviewer unless something I get from amazon really was terrible, but I felt compelled to tell all that this was an amazing book.
For me what was also cool was having the whisper sync audio so that I could listen in my car as well as read on my couch.
this book was just that good I just couldn't put it down and so far book 2 is of the same stuff.
back to my couch I go to enjoy book 2 if it continues being as good as the first I might just write another review :-) happy reading
