    Story
    "A Fair Start To A YA Series."

    Sterling Wayfairer, a Noban, is a high school senior on Geo, an Earth-like world. Sterling, who is about to come into strange powers. Tetra is a girl from Noban, who travels through time and space to make contact with Sterling, the boy she is somehow bonded to. Enter the Naga, a strange and powerful creature who is hell bent on killing Sterling and you have the beginning of the Wayfairer series. I found this YA novel a bit slow in pace, but it did keep my attention. With that said, I don’t know that I would pick up the next book in the series.

    Finally, this audio book was provided at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Boom.

    "Interesting Fantasy Story"

    I liked this story, but I'm still not really sure I know what was going on most of the time. I got the gist of it. Girl from another world "binds" with a boy to save the world from a creature who takes the form of other people as well as a huge snake. But beyond that, I didn't understand the binding or how Sterling got picked to join with Tetra, how she found him initially, etc. There was very little information about their past encounters or anything about Tetra's background. There was so much missing from the story for me that was never developed by the time the book ended.

    That said, I enjoyed the interaction of the students at the school. Some of what happened was downright hilarious. However, there wasn't enough personal information about Tetra to really make me care about her, and I never understood how she seemed invisible to everyone but Sterling for the first part of the book. Did she somehow erase ALL those people's memories continuously? Things like that didn't make sense, but if you suspend your need to understand and know what is going on, it's a pleasant enough diversion from reality.

    The narration was good, and the variety of vocal inflection and tone made it easy to distinguish the different characters. The only drawback was that it sounded like a cassette tape running, with hissing and popping/static-type sounds, in the background. It wasn't severe, but it was noticeable.

    I would recommend this as a good audiobook for the YA crowd.

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

    "well written and Narrator was great"

    I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review
    G L Tomas as I like to say scribbled a fantastic YA science fiction novel. Robert Kazmierczak made the characters in the book come to life. I love his voice for narrating. I will search for his books to listen to.
    Now: I loved the book, it captures the fears, insecurities and problems that come with high school kids on a daily basis.
    What I really liked about this book was the writing: it's so natural the words flow across the Universe.
    This is a YA title but can be enjoyed by all ages. It has something to please everyone: a coming of age story, romance, and fantasy.
    I highly recommend this book to everyone

    I read all kinds of books, but I have an obsession with paranormal and fantasy at the moment. Sorry about any spelling mistakes/typos.

    Story
    "A complex universe full of the possible"
    Where does The Mark of Noba rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was good, and I'd like to listen to the next book in the series, but it wasn't OMG I need to listen to this again right now.


    What did you like best about this story?

    G.L. Tomas has created a new universe for this story to take place in and there's a lot of information in this book because it's quite complicated. It forms a great set-up for a series, but I found it a bit unclear at times.


    Which character – as performed by Robert Kazmierczak – was your favorite?

    The narration was great, the character voices were a highlight, even the female voices were well done, I really enjoyed it.


    Any additional comments?

    Tetra makes for a very interesting character, having come from another planet she's clueless about the culture she's living in and it creates a lot of misunderstandings.

    Stirling is a little annoying, mostly because he acts like a typical teen-aged boy but he does change throughout the book, slowly coming to terms with everything that's happening around him.

    The plot is really well done, so many twists, I'm looking forward to what this means for the next book.

    There are a couple of noticeable shifts in the volume of the book, so you'll need to adjust for that.

    What did you like most about The Mark of Noba?

    Completely different than my usual read. I really liked the relationship growing betweenTetra and Sterling and how he had to teach her the basics of human culture it was sweet,funny and a non stop source for the story and characters to delve in to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It made me laugh and cry(a lot) and it has the potential to go far as a series.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I think I enjoyed the part where Tetra first came to live with Sterling and he had to write rules so she didnt take her bra off infront of him ect .Things a human would know but the culture on Noba clearly is very different.Very amusing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was, but there are only so many hours in a day so from the time I got home til the time I went to sleep I was a captive audience.


    Any additional comments?
