Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of How to Hang a Witch comes a thriller set at a secretive boarding school where students are trained to carry on family legacies that have built - and toppled - empires. Think Umbrella Academy with teenage assassins.

November is as good as dead. She just doesn't know it yet.

At the international Academy Absconditi, there's no electricity, no internet, and an archaic eye-for-an-eye punishment system. Classes range from knife throwing and poisons to the art of deception. And the students? All silver-spoon descendants of the world's most elite strategists - training to become assassins, spies, and master impersonators. One is a virtuoso of accents - and never to be trusted. Another is a vicious fighter determined to exploit November's weaknesses. And then there's the boy with the mesmerizing eyes and a secret agenda. 

November doesn't know how an ordinary girl like her fits into the school's complicated legacy. But when a student is murdered, she'll need to separate her enemies from her allies before the crime gets pinned on her...or she becomes the killer's next victim. 

From New York Times best- selling author Adriana Mather comes the first book in a thrilling new series that will leave you breathless.

NOVEMBER.....

I am anxiously awaiting book 2. Adriana Mather is a literary genius! Cassandra Morris is a divine narrator! The performance was great, the book was NEXT LEVEL. The plot of this book has so many twists and turns I felt like I was on a roller coaster. I could not put it down. Honestly the character development is what has me so shook. Adriana has always done a good job making me feel like I know her characters and can connect with them, but this book is in a league of its own. November is one of the most competent and compelling protagonists I have ever had the pleasure of reading.I cannot wait to see where her journey takes her in the next installment of this hopefully very long series.

Keep A Secret

Adriana Mather has been my new favorite author since How to Hang a Witch came out a few years ago. She’s done it again with the secret society that November is thrust into.
The book kept me captivated and guessing who November really is until the end. The narrator captures November’s spirit wonderfully.

decent

this is the third book by Mather I've purchased, but this would be the first audio version. narrator was good, story was interesting enough, but Mather's other two are still my favorites. I am interested to see how the story continues.

Couldn't listen to it fast enough

The story line kept me intrigued the entire time, I was on the edge of my seat a few times from anticipation, though some of the twists were expected. I would read and listen to this book again and again.

Great read/listen

As an adult, I go through phases of what genres I enjoy and I'm currently back to more of YA reading phase. I started listening to "The Naturals" by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, which I had read before a few years ago, and was in the mood to go through for the second time, but when I finished listening to the first book in the series, I was bummed to realize the other books were not available in an audio format so I started looking for something similar to listen to and this book came up. I was not disappointed, this was a great first book and I really enjoyed both the story and the the narration. I will admit, certain aspects of the book were a little predictable, but that would be my only criticism for "Killing November". I'd definitely recommend this to adults and young adults alike.

Great YA Series

This was a really enjoyable listen! The story is kind of Mr and Mrs Smith meets Harry Potter and the narrator does a fantastic job of bringing the story to life!
