An okay listen

I had really high hopes for this book based on the blurb, however I was a bit let down. I had a hard time getting into this book from the very beginning. I felt that the story jumped around alot, and I just didn't connect with the story or the narrator. Overall, it wasn't bad.

Not what I hoped it would be

This book was very confusing and even though that narration was quite good I felt like I did not understand what was going on, ALL THE TIME. At first, I did get into it but the moment the parents came into play the story just threw me out and I could not get back in.

the plot twists into extreme situations but it seems like Sol is almost not really experiencing them. He is both naïve to a point its painful to read and yet undergoes so much. I could not believe the plot line at all and every new development, from his freakish parents kidnaping him and the colt thing…. It was just too convoluted for me to follow or enjoy.
the characters were too flat, I could not connect with them and it might be because of all the things going on in the book that really took the focus from the characters. I would have liked it to be a story that has less action and more emotion.

Dark & Twisted

This is an angst filled and sometimes depressing story. Sol's life is full of danger and abuse because of his parents and the "church" they belong to. It was really sad how not only his parents are his biggest enemies, but his twin brother Ben basically abandons him too. The only light in his life is Sean who loves him and helps him heal.
The narrator was okay but some of the character voices just didn't work and didn't give much life to the story.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this audiobook at my request.

Good story, narration not as enjoyable

Don’t be fooled by the bucolic cover depicting a beautiful small town street. This is an angst-filled novel about a dangerously mentally ill woman and her husband, and the crimes the commit against their twin sons in the name of a religious cult.
Sol and Ben are twins but Ben is the more outgoing son while Sol is a more timid soul. As their mother’s psychological illness progresses over the years the boys are shunted to foster homes. Sol’s situations are usually more bizarre and dangerous than Ben’s and eventually Sol ages out of the system and finds himself on the streets. He is kidnapped by members of the church that his father attends and locked up. One night he escapes and is found in a pitiful state by a wealthy young man named Sean who takes him home.
Ben has landed in better circumstances but is separated from Sol. Sol must continuously hide from the cult and somehow they keep tracking him down, despite the efforts of Sean to protect him. Ben, Sol, and Sean are all gay but their lives are very different.
This is a dark, twisted plot but has an HEA so it is worth reading as a romance. So, the book earns 4 stars as a novel. I listened to the audio book and that’s where my review takes a bit of a dive. I did not care for the narrator. His pace slow as if he is reading to a child, and the character voices were odd. This is not my favorite audio book but the story is interesting enough for me to remain attentive to the end.

*received in exchange for an honest review*

I really enjoyed the story of Sol and Seth. It was greatly written by Leona Windwalker and I have added the following book to my TBR pile. I did, however, find myself reading the book on my kindle because I found myself not listening to Standley’s narration and I kept missing bits. It was really monotonous. And as much as I tried to prevent it from taking away from what was a great, drama filled story, it really did.

Matt didn't do it for me

What did you like best about Sol's Solstice? What did you like least?

I enjoyed the story but the narrator really wasn't expressive enough for me.

What three words best describe Matt Standley’s voice?

Not expressive enough
