Starting school is supposed to be a fun and exciting time for any new student. But for Lark, a skilled archer and fledgling mind-reader, it's a creative form of torture. Locked in rooms and hallways with both friends and enemies, bombarded by the thoughts and feelings of his peers, Lark is a prisoner.

For a first attempt at writing and publishing R. S. McCoy I believe has nailed it. Great introduction to characters and descriptions of the atmosphere and the structure overall was great. I read the book some time ago when she first released it on Amazon and really enjoyed it so I decided to look for audiobook.
This story was about two young kids taken to a school for gifted to be trained and educated so they can fulfill the desires of two people drunk on power. But as most teens do they eventually rebel and go against the wishes of those with the power.
Unfortunately the first book is all that has been put in audio format.
There were a few minor issues I think with the audiobook, first you can here what sounds like a metallic noise in the back ground. This wasn't enough to keep me from listening though. Second, there was an issue it seems at the beginning of each chapter the first few words somehow get repeated.
Overall very well done and enjoyable story.
