    "Dislike!"

    Dislike!! This book frustrated me. The main character Emerson is so irritating and there are gaps in the story.

    Story
    "I enjoyed the overall story, but . . . . ."

    The story was enjoyable in general, but I probably won't be buying the second book. The writing, while not bad, was very juvenile, as were the emotions of the characters. I do understand that they were all juveniles, but it was a bit ridiculous. The story also came to no resolution, and apparently will be continued in the second volume. This is a no-no in my estimation. If authors want to continue a series with additional adventures using the same characters, that is great, but each book should be complete in itself. That does not happen here, so be prepared to buy all three books to actually finish the one.

    Story
    "Juvenile beyond belief. Run away."

    The world is on the edge of destruction, billions of lives balance on the edge of a razor, somebody kisses someone and makes someone else mad. But let's focus on the kiss, because that's what is important under these circumstances. When I find myself wishing that ALL of the main character die, it's time to stop listening and ask for a refund. This is the worst and most inane story I have ever heard. Time to get my money back.

    Story
    "Entertaining"

    I listened to this a while back but wasn't sure what I thought of it. I'm still not. It wasn't my favorite but is worth giving it some credit. There's a few chapters I thought were odd and not sure why they were part of the story. That's what really threw me. Other than that the story has a good, unique plot and a smooth flow. I listened to it a second time, skipping the weird chapters and it was pretty good.

    It's a love story using angels who aren't very angelic. The main character is an ordinary kid except her purple eyes and a bit of a wall flower but she's got guts. Marcus is the angel she's drools over but he's taken. The story gets far more involved but it's worth listening to.

    I loved having the two narrators because it gave the story ore character. The sound quality was also great.

    "love the author but..."

    I love this author and I love the series but the narrator sounds really whiney when she voices Emmy. I feel like it takes away from the story...

    "angst filled with bad dialog"

    The dialog is pretty bad in some parts. The lead female is super annoying. The plot is explained well but I can't get past my dislike of the lead female to want to read the second book.

    "What a waste of time"

    I keep waiting for it to get better. It didn't. Don't waste your time. This is not a young adults book it's a toddlers story.

    "a new world for me to get lost in. love love this"

    I didn't struggle with this book like I do most. it was easy to fall into the storyline in tempo with the narrators who were able to switch voices for characters without it being extremely or overly animated. it had just the right amount for each character with the right amount of emotion and inflection. I finished the quickly compared to other books. this was a good read.

    Story
    "Duty or Desire"
    Any additional comments?

    This YA saga, starts off with a group of angels, known as Guardians who descend to earth to battle evil and save the world for another 666 years. The premise is an interesting one and the characters well written. As a reader, I think I am getting a little old and intolerant of teenage angst and drama, which means that parts of the story really irritated me. <br/>On the whole though, the story is gripping and there are a lot of interesting twists. This is definitely a series for teenagers who would be able to identify with the struggles of love and life, and finding your place in the world.<br/>
