Not even Naomi's prophetic dreams prepare her for the mysterious wanderer who appears just in time to snatch her from danger, nor the upheaval he brings in his wake. No knight in shining armor, Reynolds once risked Naomi's life, and that dark secret again threatens it. When Naomi discovers the world of magic and of what she is capable, not even Reynolds can slow the fate barreling down upon them both.
This was such a fun listen! Listeners young and old will enjoy this story with elements of magic, adventure and a little romance. Evil powers will stop at nothing to possess the magical stones and Naomi is caught in the middle, fighting for her survival.
The narration was very well done and enhanced my listening experience. This looks like the start to a great series and I would recommend it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I did enjoy this book. When it ended I realized that I was hooked and wanted to hear the rest. I'll look forward to purchasing the remainder of the audible series when it becomes available.
What other book might you compare Vivatera to and why?
It's a fantasy set in an earlier time. I could compare it to other magical novels in some respects. Even though it had some familiar elements, it was fresh and had plenty of original ideas.
Have you listened to any of Alyson Grauer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not heard of her, or listened to Alyson narrate a story before. I liked her voice and I thought she did a very good job with all the characters, making teach one sound different. I really liked the way Alyson read the book. She did an awesome job! I look forward to hearing her finish the series. I might see what else she's done. I think she is a great choice for the tone of this novel.
Any additional comments?
I did enjoy listening to this book. Some of the wording wasn't ideal, I would have chosen some different phrasing here and there. I could see where some of her ideas were progressing to, so no real surprises. I think it was well done. Maybe could use a little more polish, but over all I thought it was very good.
