Publisher's Summary

Her world is a lie, and that lie wants her dead.

As a student of the prestigious Royal Academy, Clare's work on automatons needs to not only impress her professors but also honor the legacy of her late mother, who wrote the book on humanity's mechanized companions.

Clare discovers a hidden recording at home that reveals an inconvenient truth, and now, she believes there's a chance her mother could be alive. This means the police lied to her about her mother's fate. But why? There's only one way to find out.

Sneaking underground into the forbidden substation system, Clare does find something: It has intelligence. It hunts. It can kill.

She finds a perfect copy of her walled-off city, and something's wrong; something's very wrong.

If you love thrillers, fantasy, dystopian settings, or just the kinds of chills that keep their nails in you even after you've put it down, look no further. Welcome to Substation 7!

Looking forward to the next book!

Condemnation (Substation 7, Book 1) by Kell Inkston and narrated by Jacob Buchholz is a good, imaginative start to a new series. I look forward to future installments as I think this will turn into a great series as it progresses. 4 stars all around. If you enjoy dystopian tech themes, this is a must-listen.

What’s it about? Clare is studying at the academy and she soon learns things are not as they seem with her mother’s death and the world she lives in. When she begins questioning things, her adventure into the unknown begins and becomes quite the thrill and will only get worse as the King has sicced the Chosen One on her. You get tech, adventures, a quest, futuristic elements, corruption, separatists, an automaton friend and enemies, and plenty more. The flow and character development is good, I look forward to learning more about the characters and their world (Clare and Oswald especially). Things are left unanswered as this is a series of three. Why four stars then? It took a bit long to get going, but once it did (Chapter Five), I couldn’t put the book down. If you start it and feel the same, keep with it.

The narrator, Jacob Buchholz, did a good job. As the book progressed, his pacing and voices became more steady and well-rounded. He has potential to become a great narrator. I would listen to another book by him.

Overall I recommend, especially if you enjoy tech set in a dystopian world.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: mild violence (guns). Language used: 23 f-bombs, Sx11, damn x15, hell x19.
