Publisher's Summary

Given magical powers through a wish by a jinn, Henry Tsien was thrown into a hidden supernatural world. Forced to battle his own faulty, pop-culture-driven assumptions, as well as shadowy supernatural organizations while leveling up, Henry found an ally in Alexa Dumough, the Knights Templar initiate.

But that alliance is now threatened as Alexa is forced to take the Knights Templar’s test to become a squire. Together, the pair must face numerous trials that will test their patience, skills, and magic. All the while, Alexa must consider if becoming a squire for the Knights Templar is truly what she wishes for.

The Hidden Wishes series is an urban fantasy GameLit series with a game-like user interface, magic, the supernatural, kickass women, and shadowy supernatural organizations. No harems involved.

It was good, but not great.

This is the problem with 6 hour installments. The first “book” in the series really managed to pull you in, and while it would have absolutely benefitted from being a full length book, the short format didn’t leave you feeling like you only got half of the story.

This second installment did. Though the events kept me listening and the writing was executed well, this book really didn’t do much to pull you further into the story. It felt like the first half of a book where you are entertained, but the characters are more or less just doing their thing.... and you know that all the really good stuff is going to happen in the second half. Except this book ends right before that second half would have begun.

In the end, this was overpriced for what it was. Spending a whole credit on half a book is not a great feeling. I hope that the author either drops the short installment format or starts releasing omnibus editions. This book was enjoyable, but I felt like it was more of an episode than the next book in a series. Which would be fine if I could buy it for $7 or $8.

Recording quality issues.

Listening to this I found that the sound editing done came in a differing sound/tone.
So all of a sudden a single word or more sounded like some other narrator read them.

So add a few words that where obviously incorrect but which the narrator nevertheless read even though the sentence made no sense and the bad sound production overall this is getting a 1 Star Performance rating.
If I new how I would rate it a zero.

- refund
