Publisher's Summary

Magic marked her for suffering. Magic will save her. Magic will lead her home.

On Tempris, time magic is outlawed, and suspected time mages are hunted. Humans are second-class citizens, shunned by the immortal fey that live on the island. They even have a name for their kind: Shardless.

Taly is one of the lucky humans. Taken in by a fey noble and his family, she's lived a good life, surrounded by people she loves. But when an accidental brush with magic causes her to see things - ghostly apparitions that give her small glimpses into the future - it has deadly consequences. The Sanctorum has returned to the island, and if they find her, they'll kill her. And anyone that tries to protect her.

This includes her best friend, Skye. He was the boy that saved her. The man she knew she could never have. And when he refuses to let her go, their actions might hold the power to reshape the world.

An ancient evil is rising, and in order to protect those that she cares for, Taly will have to sacrifice everything.

Including her heart.

Contains mature themes.

Characters I actually like& a story I want more of

I really enjoyed this book. I wish the next one was coming out tomorrow, if not today, but alas I will have to wait.
I liked all of the characters, even the ones that seem to only have a line or two. I'm not sure how she accomplished it but even in those brief words for the side characters, I had an impression of each one.
For once the main characters relationship progression was nice. it would be hard for me to explain, but it felt right, wasn't rushed or stilted, and wasn't all kissy kissy.
As with the beginning of any new series, it took me a little bit to understand the layout of the world, but not to any extreme, and there is still plenty of room to expand.
Of course I still have lots questions, but I'm sure the majority will be answered in the upcoming books. I sincerely look forward to their release.
As for the narrator, I personally thought she did an excellent job and explore other books she has narrated.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did, and pass it along. I honestly had this for a while and can't believe I waited so long to listen.

Loved this, slow to start but stick with it

At first I struggled to get into this book but I’m glad I stuck with it... this series has the potential to be an epic fantasy series (similar to throne of glass but very tamed down version and lead character doesn’t have the same swagger/ kick ass attitude as celaena sardothien yet)... I’m hopeful for next book to have more action packed twists and turns that this first book lacks (my personal opinion).. but don’t let my words put you off.. I have finished this book wanting to re read it again and can’t wait for the next one to be released ... again the narrator Elizabeth Evans is amazing as always in the books she narrates.. she brings the characters to life!!

loved it can't wait for more

I was skeptical as to whether I would enjoy this or not from the description but I'm glad I gave it a chance as it's one of the best stories I've "read" in a long time.

the narrator was decent, but some voices sounded the same. however this wasn't really an issue as the dialogue and written voices of the characters were so superb that I knew who they were just by what they said and their manner of speaking.

Cannot recommend this one high enough!
