Publisher's Summary

Soon-to-be college freshman Evie Claremont had hoped that once she'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that she'd been having would go away. It hasn't. She may be an inexperienced 17-year-old, but she's grounded... sane. She looks for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, she feels an attraction to him - a magnetic kind of force pulling her toward him.

Unfortunately, Reed acts as if Evie's the worst thing that has ever happened to Crestwood...or him. But for some reason every time she turns around he's there, barging into her life. What is the secret that he's keeping from her? Evie's hoping that it's anything but what she suspects: That he's not exactly normal...and neither is she. So, maybe Crestwood won't be the making of her, but it could be the breaking of her. Evie's now left to wonder if the dark future her dream is foretelling is...inescapable.

    "Slow start but worth the wait!"

    It took several failed attempts for me to get into this book, but once you get a few chapters in, you're hooked! Already purchased book 2.

    "Meh, Good Narrator somewhat boring Story"
    Would you try another book from Amy Bartol and/or Emily Woo Zeller?

    The narrator is excellent. The story not so much.


    Was Inescapable worth the listening time?

    I enjoyed the first book, but found the sequel to be boring. The story from Russel's perspective was tedious. The "woe is me" theme to his dialogue was tiresome. Sadly, I was unable to finish the audiobook. If I owned a physical copy of the book I would have skimmed over parts of the story that were boring. The audiobook was returned. (Also, Russel's "southern drawl"..... Whew. Painful.)

    Story
    "Lots of issues, don't know why I'm still listening"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Well, there's some pretty basic things that are confusing here. She has a main character, Russell, who's from Asheville-ish NC. And... He's somehow not familiar with "real Winters". Let me tell you, Asheville, NC gets dumped on. And it's a regular enough thing that the town doesn't close down. Also, Southern women? Can do shit. And don't peevishly mouse out and ask for help. I'm not Southern myself, but I lived in Charlotte, NC for 8 years (frequently traveling to Asheville, actually), and these women are quite independent, strong, and capable. Sometimes they may act like they want/need help, but they can fix that whatever just as well as the men. So, this threw me off immediately and kept me from getting into the book.

    My next big problem is... well, the whole plot. And how easily Evie is like, oh yeah. I'm clearly an angel, and this is fine. What could easily have seemed like an older collegiate just being an ass is almost immediately brought to seem like it's this awful situation and her life is spiraling out of control. It all seems very contrived. And like all the drama in the world is happening in the time of three days.

    Also certain plot holes are quite strange: I swear the angel Reed says he's never been to paradise, has been on Earth the whole span of his life, but later he refers to his time in paradise. Confused.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Amy Bartol again?

    I don't know why I'm still listening. I'm curious so who knows I might pick up the next book.


    Did Emily Woo Zeller do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Decently, but the mens' voices were... very strange. Can't explain it but they sounded like absolute caricatures.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    nope

    "Great book other than the reincarnation part!"

    This book has a good storyline and the reader does an excellent job. I didn't like the many references to reincarnation because it isn't my belief. Other than that it was great. Ready for the 2nd book.

    Story
    "Why did I wait sooo long?!"

    I absolutely loved the Kricket series by Amy Bartol and am not sure why it took me so long to start her Premonition series.

    I loved Inescapable and have already downloaded Intuition. YA Angel Romance is my absolute favorite genre (hence, my own book "Genesis") and I haven't been this happy about angels since Cynthia Hand's "Unearthly" series. While this book had more blood and gore than I normally like, it centered around Evie becoming a (half) Seraph and realizing she had a soul mate, but choosing to surrender to the pull from her guardian angel. I loved the way Bartol wrote the characters as well as the college setting. I was also surprised by the betrayal of a close friend in the end.

    Can't wait to start Book #2!

    "Terrible grammar, long-winded love story"

    It kept me somewhat entertained at my boring job and the gym, but the writing just uses such bad grammar. I hope the person editing is gone and they've gotten someone better. In addition, the story seemed a bit sickly sweet, with over-the-top love that seems to come out of nowhere and doesn't have much substance. I probably won't continue the series.

    Story
    "Story was intriguing"

    This book is a good read. The story flows well. I've been on the fence about this book because the sample doesn't do it justice. There were parts where I laughed out loud literally and others where I really felt for the characters. There were times when it got really corny. Like when the teens are using slang. I'm in my late twenties so I'm older but it seemed dumb in a way. Oh and things got very repetitive like when the main character described reed whether it was his scent, how she felt, physical features, or how he said her name. I've read better but overall the story was pretty good. The narrator does NOT do a good job with male voices though.
