Publisher's Summary

Sons Of Anarchy meets The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in this coming-of-age dystopian novel.

When the daughter of Greece's premier singer fails to sing as expected, she finds out about a biker group of women. But will she manage to find the elusive Orosa, the bikers' motovlogger, when all she has to go on are random street-sightings of criminal behavior, when her family is opposed to her following this path, and when her dad's employer wants to keep her as she was for marketing purposes? 

Do you want to know what's next for the voiceless Aura? Do you wanna meet the Amazons? Then listen to this coming-of-age story set in a world of biker Amazons and celebrity singers, where fate is quite literal.

Greek God corporations

Aura is the daughter of a famous singer who suddenly can’t perform the way she’s suppose to. She learns of a woman bike gang and those women who try to change the way corporations are treating the people as they name themselves after Greek Gods. A special mission comes when they find one using a group of fates to literally chose what happens in people’s lives. What will Aura do? Will the fates keep deciding or will they change what’s going on.

Cool world

This book was hard to get into and understand at first. The character names were too similar. Once I figured everything out I started to enjoy it. Great characters and writing. The chapters often times cut in the middle of a climax and didn’t resume from that point on. This felt very anticlimactic at times. It is worth reading, especially if you want something unique.

Not bad

It took me a bit to get in to this. Many names sounded alike and some of the Greek characters aren’t familiar to me.
It was slow to start but got going fast after the initial beginning. I did really enjoy it.
While the narrator was great I think a female should have narrated a book about an all female gang.
I would continue with this books works if this turns in to a series.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook from the publisher/author but voluntarily give my honest review.

pretty decent story!

I received a copy of this book in audiobook form in exchange for an honest review.

This story was actually decent.
Be forewarned, if you have a problem with female bikers, some of which like other female bikers in romantic ways, you may not like some moments in this book.
other than the occasional mention of a female body part by it's proper name, this story was good. I started out not liking the main chick because, white privilege... but she proved to have some good depth. There were many other characters that I ended up liking and the story had some interesting plot twists, new ideas and ended on an interesting note.

all in all, it was a good listen.

Good story in YA Gendre.

I should not be reviewing this audible book, but here I am.This is a good story for YA audiences. I am not a YA, so received this by mistake. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.".

A Wild Ride!

The Girl Who Twisted Fate's Arm: A God Complex Young Adult Novel
The Road Demands Tribute, Volume 1
By: George Saoulidis
Narrated by: John York
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
This is a strange but interesting book about celebrities, teens trying to make their own way doing it their way, changing the world even if it means breaking rules, and so much more. It's in the future with more tech. Some things don't change like Corp corruption and teens needing to be themselves and loved.
The narration was very good and keep the flow going well.

SOA on tricycles

I was sold on the Sons of Anarchy headline. I didn't read enough of the description so even though I figured this was a young adult style story I probably should have realized the target audience based on the cover art and title, but I was looking for something different to listen to so I was excited to give it a go. As it turns out I am totally too old to listen to it. I found myself more indifferent about a lot of what happened or the people involved, but can see why this would be great for younger readers. I just couldn’t get into the aspects of the plot with the maturity level this was intended for.
I really liked the mixture of post-apocalyptic bikers and Greek mythology. Really that is a fantastic marriage. I just heard too much let’s take a selfie talk versus what I was hoping for.
Narration was great, I probably would have ditched the whole story if it weren’t for the narration. I liked his accent and his cadence. I wish there was more distinction with the different character voices but again his voice was quite enjoyable as is.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Do not feel sorry for your rage...Shape it, mold it.

This Audiobook is such a disappointment.
Firstly, the format is not so much a novel as a screenplay, divided into play!ist video clips rather than chapters, not in itself off putting except some to ish unexpectedly only to do things in the next clip. Yet it is not a conventional screenplay, either, seemingly merging script and novel, directions, conversation and action. The reason this device was used is obvious: one of the main protagonist is filming everything she sees throughout; and it might have worked had some of the action recorded in the story not been seen by the camera.

There is confusion, too, in the similarity of names of the (mostly female) characters, not helped by the narrator also apparently sometimes fudging the pronunciations, leaving this reader unsure of who was being mentioned. Several attempted starts were aborted because of a personal inability to absorb what was being said of done by or to one of the protagonists.

Set some time in the not too distant future, the story centres around a mid teenage girl, Aura, daughter of a popular singer who is herself being groomed to be famous. Surrounded by wea!th and celebrity when so many were impoverished, she falls in love with the idea of leaving it, and her parents, to join a band of female gun toting motor cyclists known as the Amazons, affiliated to a mega corporation which is a rival to that in which she has grown up and been pampered. Intertwined with her personal romance is a mission undertaken by the Amazon's which is 'straight out of a Greek tragedy.'

Had the story been more accessible, it could have been both touching and thought provoking. Perhaps, in print rather than as an audio production, it is more compelling. But the choice of the narrator was also wrong. John York has a clear, well articulated presentation but his occasional mis pronunciations and only slight differentiating voices of the numerous protagonists failed to convey a story dependent on a flatter text reading combined with animated conversation.I

I have read several of the short stories by George Saoulidis and been impressed by his versatility and good writing - a especial favourite being the insightful and scary, You Have Too Many Friends. So I was delighted to receive a complimentary copy of The Girl Who Twisted Fate's Arm, at my request, from the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. I was expecting something intriguing, radical, thought provoking and well written. It was all of these except the last.
