Publisher's Summary

The second instalment in the best-selling Obernewtyn series.

Since their takeover of Obernewtyn, the secret community of Misfits has flourished, protected by their remoteness. Led by Elspeth Gordie, whose extraordinary powers set her apart even among her Misfit friends, an expedition sets out to rescue a powerful Misfit in a distant part of the Land.

Only she knows the enormity of their task. But for her there is yet another challenge, as she must fulfil her vow to find and dismantle the dormant death weapons left by the Beforetimers.

A quest with mind talents.

This was a really fun listen. It's classic YA distopian fantasy, Elspeth is on a quest to save her band of talented Misfits. It has likeable characters, an absorbing plot and the author does a good job of the narration. This was a favorite book of mine as a teenager and I really enjoyed revisiting it as an audiobook.

can't get through this book.

didn't much get into the first book either but struggled through and as it came highly recommended by a friend I thought I'd try book two but am returning it. can't feel any link with the characters. not sure if it's the reader or the book...

Fantastic Listen

Isabelle Carmody not only captures the characters of the people she writes about, but the voices too. This is an entertaining audiobook, I like her "highlander" accents. I'm enjoying the story of Obernewtyn immensely
