Publisher's Summary

In the months since Cassandra Devlin walked off Earth onto another planet, she has grappled with everything from making blankets to helping psychics battle the memories of monsters. Not able to find a way home, she has instead gained friends and a purpose. Unfortunately, that purpose brings with it the pressure of being more than a little valuable, and those she has befriended are also her guards, ordered to explore and control her abilities to find out just what it is a touchstone can do.

"Test subject" was not the career path Cass had been planning. With no privacy, too-frequent injuries, and the painful knowledge that she must always be an assignment to her Setari companions, Cass can only wish for some semblance of normality and control. And as her abilities become more and more dangerous, tests and training may be the only thing capable of protecting Cass from herself.

Screwed by Audible they are failing to provide book three.

An excellent adventure away from reality giving the readers the chance just to enjoy listening, Book three needs to be completed now

Lab Rats Rule!

I was so thrilled that this series was finally pulled from the Ena to come to Audible. Though the Australian narrator doesn't do male voices well, she does make the format of the story, told in the form of a diary, really come alive. "Lab Rat One" is the second book of Andrea K. Höst's 'Touchstone' series, which sees Cassandra's adventures on new worlds with new supernatural powers really jump into action. (But read or listen to "Stray" first so you understand all the characters and the world-building.)

The story really gets intense with scary encounters that are horrifying to experience--which tells you how good the author is at pulling the reader into the book. It's impossible to tell more without spoiling the action, but the reader/listener will find "Lab Rat One" engrossing.

Ms. Höst delivers a coming-of-age tail with little angst but a whole lot of heart. I love the character of Cassandra--I just wish I could hit that inter-dimensional gate and visit Muina as well.

As a final note, the books have a great index at the end that explains Australian idioms. I had to refer to it several times because the only phrase I really knew was about "the barbie."
