Publisher's Summary

You'll never miss the sunlight until it's gone.

Sixteen-year-old Echo Navarri, daughter of world-famous archaeologists Alice and Peter Navarri, had spent her life traveling from one expedition to the next as her parents unearthed lost civilizations.

On their 13th dig, Midnight, Echo's twin sister, disappears without a trace. This prompts a year-long search that leaves the family nearly broken.

In an attempt to find some closure, they reluctantly host a mock funeral for Midnight without ever recovering her remains.

Nearing the one year anniversary of Midnight's assumed death, Echo is sent to live with her eccentric Aunt Luna who is the caretaker of the centuries old Navarri Estate in Port Royal, Maine.

Echo attempts to settle into her new life in Port Royal, but soon finds that she's destined for adventure as the mystery of her family's history, the sunless town, and it's oddly intriguing people teeter on the supernatural.

    "Not for me."

    After reading a lot of positive reviews for this, I was excited to start!! But I'm baffled as to how bored I was with it!! I expected a fast paced, engaging read and what I got was a book that basically focused on a teen romance with a vampire. It had echoes of Twilight as well.

    So the book focuses on Echo Navarri, daughter of famous archaeologists Alice and Peter Navarri. On a dig with them, her twin, Midnight, goes missing without a trace and Echo is devastated. After a fruitless search, Echo's parents send her home to her aunt. There Echo meets Thorn Vega, a mysterious boy who she feels drawn to. As she dig deeper into who he is, she is drawn into a world she never knew existed.

    I didn't particularly like Echo. She was so..... boring maybe. I don't know!! I wanted her to be more proactive and less like she was. I have to say that I hated the insta love/connection she felt for Thorn. It was just so... ugh and overdone. I didn't care whether they got together or not.

    While reading, I felt like maybe I dozed off or something, because a lot of the time I was confused as to what was happening and had no clue what was going on, so I pressed back on the audio only to realise that I hadn't missed anything. It was just written like that! It felt very disjointed at times and honestly, at that point I didn't care for the story or the characters to go back and try to immerse myself again. Maybe it was just me, but I found it to be boring and predictable and not something I would read again.

    Sarah Puckett read it well. She was clear and easy to listen to and had a few tones and voices for the characters.

    I was voluntarily provided this free copy by the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    Story
    "ABSOLUTELY WORTH A LISTEN!"
    What made the experience of listening to 13 Ways to Midnight the most enjoyable?

    The best part about this book wasn't just the story, but the voice over reader. I have listened to audio books before with readers who have literally put me to sleep. This was NOT one of those. Mrs. Puckett read it masterfully and was engaged in the story, making the listen enjoyable for me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself was excellent. Rue Volley, besides having a really cool name, is obviously an excellent author. But the best part was the audio reading. Mrs. Puckett read this professionally and excellently, and she kept me engaged in the story the entire time. P.S. The accents were very good!


    Have you listened to any of Sarah Puckett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first performance I have heard so far, but it will not be the last. I plan on purchasing everything else she has done in the past, and in the future! The performance was five stars!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had a very emotional reaction to this book. The emotional journey for the listener is up to the performer, and Sarah Puckett delivered in a big way. She kept me engaged in the book, and elicited a wide array of emotional reactions!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this audio book. The story and the audio performer are a perfect combination, creating an amazing experience for the listener. Five Stars. Actually, scratch that...TEN STARS!!!

    "Good YA Story"
    Would you listen to 13 Ways to Midnight again? Why?

    No, I am not a fan of YA books but there are too many others to listen to for me to listen to this one again.


    What other book might you compare 13 Ways to Midnight to and why?

    Not sure about one that I have listened to that comes close.


    Which character – as performed by Sarah Puckett – was your favorite?

    She did a fine job with all of them. I did not have a favorite. Although Echo was done very well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I did not care for the parents. Why would you send your daughter away after she loses her twin They were too selfish for me. I got this book via audiobook boom.

    "an amazing and magical tale"

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audio book by the author, narrator or publisher.

    and it was so awesome!!!

    this story has a lot of folclore I haven't heard before and some that I had but it was so masterfully interwined that it was perfect.

    the romance was so intriguing and all the upsides downs and twists the narration had, make this book a favorite already.

    one thing I found amusing was the balance between suspense, romance and comedy I got from this book, it was superb I mean everything was where it needed to be and nothing felt awkward or misplaced.

    if you like vampires and magic and romance you should pick this one up.

    "One of the Best Stories I have read this year"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because its a great book and has a really good story line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The town seems to have a lot of different stories to it. Im hoping that these come to light in the second book.


    Have you listened to any of Sarah Puckett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but she did a great job of bringing the characters to life with so much emotion.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book recommended to all ages. I didnt like how Echo was all over Thorn even though he was a jerk to her. I also kind of hated how the ending seemed to just end awkwardly.

    "More than 13 ways to GREATNESS"

    I am a huge fan of Rue Volley. I absolutely ADORE her! I actually won an e-book copy of this book, but as I am not able to read books right now with my schedule (I work and go to school, both full time). I bought the audio version of the book on Audible.com to listen to it. as audio is my book reading saving grace! It was SO TOTALLY WORTH IT TOO!.

    I love this book. I love this book for so many different reasons. I am a feelings kind of person. This book made me get the feels too. All kinds of feels. Midnight and her sister, Echo (cool parents to name them that huh) have quite the adventurous life. One adventure turns their life into a tragedy, leaving Echo half of what she used to be.

    The emotion in this book is almost tangible. The characters are so real, they make you laugh, cry, jump, and want to choke them. This is the stuff that good books are made of. I highly anticipate where the next book in this series takes us (HINT HINT RUE VOLLEY.....I want another book)!!! :)

    "Two thumbs up"

    This book is totally different than what I'm used to reading but the Narrator did a fantastic job of making me feel part of the book. I normally don't listen to audio books but I would definitely do it again. The story was different but I definitely got into it.

    "fantastic book"

    I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review
    This book was pretty interesting to read and I loved the dark and creepy look of the cover. I am a sucker for paranormal reads filled with mystery that needs to be unveiled.
    When Midnight, Echo's twin, dies in a horrible way Echo's life gets turned around. She ends up moving home, surrounded by grief, tries to live a normal life. But the young has different ideas.
    After reading the first few pages, I was immediately hooked into this unusual, paranormal world.
    Rue Volley has worked her magic once again by weaving a suspenseful tale, she keeps the reader guessing with every page turn. This reader finds herself asking "Is he?" "Are they?".
    I thought I had the plot figured out and then I realized I didn't.
    Sarah Puckett did a fantastic job with the reading of the book.
    Fantastic!!

    "Incredible!"

    Wow! This is the first book I have read from Rue Volley, but it won't be the last. She did an incredible job keeping the reader engaged with the many twists and turns this book had. Her writing style is a joy to hear and the story flowed naturally.
    I cant wait to find out how this story evolves.
    Sarah Puckett did a great job with the narration. I truly felt like she was Echo and her intense emotion was very refreshing to hear.

    Story
    ",Twilight lite"
    Would you try another book written by Rue Volley or narrated by Sarah Puckett?

    Yes I would try it for sure This book did have potential,it had a sort of framework but I felt it was the bare bones and little meat to it sort of a Twilight lite.However Id certainly give Rue Volley another chance.Sarah Puckett I think made me enjoy the book more .In most books the performance is important but here it was key .There are some narrators who you know aren't going to let you down. Their voices, attention to tone and story telling are great, you can put the book on and know you're getting the right everything for your money and time.Her performance held emotion and she did a great job injecting that despite the lack of range of emotions that I feel was actually in the print.The Lore was pretty awesome though that was well done.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I adore the whole archaeology scene and think that it was one of the most interesting things about the book.the least interesting was the repetition of questions Echo Navarri was asking herself and how slowly that went and how the answers wern't as satisfying as hoped.


    Do you think 13 Ways to Midnight needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes as there were a lot of unanswered questions and the story didnt progress very quickly or far.


    Any additional comments?

    "Could have been better"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I don't think listening to this book is a time well spent. I was hooked from the beginning and I thought OK this might be a good book. Unfortunately I was disappointed to find out that I was wrong. The book has potential in my opinion however it needs a little more work doing to it.

    One of the characters I liked in this story is Echo's aunt. She felt real and had her own problems but she always tried to not let it interfere with her home life. She is honest with Echo, treating her more like an adult then a teenager but at the same time she does act the adult and put a few rules down.

    Echo acted like a teenager which is OK. I expected her to act this way since she has been home schooled because her parent move around and therefore she had not been around people her own age. However, I found her to be slow in figuring things out. I don't mind the love at first sight but I didn't believe in the love between her and Thorn and I found the progression of the book very slow. There was not a lot happening in the book. Also we did not get a lot answers to questions which I found frustrating.

    Some people have likened it to twilight and I can see why they have but if I had to choose between the two then I would go with twilight being the better because there is progression in the story and things are happening. That doesn't mean this book doesn't have potential because it does but as I mentioned above it just needs more work doing to it.

    The narrator was OK she voiced the characters giving them something so you can differentiate between them.
