Publisher's Summary

My world isn't safe. The northern gate lies open, and monsters roam the land. Towns are locked behind walls, protected by the emperor and his Black Army. Once, a fated priestess and her four guardians kept the gate sealed with magic, but there hasn't been a priestess in over a century...or so I thought. 

When a monster attacks me within the walls of my village, I am saved by Sir Forrest - the quiet former soldier who came to Istim three years ago. Turns out he's been watching me. Waiting for my powers to awaken. I am the fated priestess. But there have been others. The genius commander Abel and the Black Army have killed them all. Sir Forrest found out the truth, and now he is driven by his sacred mission to help me find my guardians and bring me to the gate. All I have to do? Find them and join with them in the Grand Quintet to grant them the powers I apparently hold, close the gate, and save the world...without suffering the same dire fate as the priestesses who came before me. 

I've always liked attention...but this is too much. 

Contains mature themes.

OMG

Holy Cow... this chick has a magic
Jay-Jay! The only way the world can be saved is by using that magic Jay-Jay with her four Guardians! I think I might have enjoy this story if there was more to the story then the nightly Magic Jay-Jay!
I didn't finish the story, I just couldn't take it. Maybe I'll go back to the story another time. I really want to know what happened to the flying cat. But I think I can only take the magic Jay-Jay in small doses.
The narrator did a superb job!!

Narration Was Perfect

This book knows what it did, and it isn't sorry. I quite like that about it.

Lauren Sweet quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators. She switches between distinct characters very effectively, and shifts back to the window character's voice without a hitch. Also her delivery is compelling and entertaining. 10/10 would listen to her again.
