Publisher's Summary

The heart-pounding second audiobook of The Child Thief series. 

After the night’s shocking events, Robin, Jace, and their team find themselves thrust into a race for their lives. 

Robin never could have imagined that things would go so wrong. Never could have dreamed they would find what they found within that innocuous-looking building. 

And now it’s too late: They’ve seen what they’ve seen, and there is no time to talk. No time to even think. Not with the caliber of people who are now on their trail. Fleeing is their priority - but even if they escape, it’s uncertain whether they will ever truly be free. 

Because there’s one thing Robin and her comrades can now count on: The deeper they dig in this strange world that was once called “the United States”, the darker the shadows become....

it was very long drawn out and repetitive.

I liked her other work better

I've listened to and read several other of Bella Forrest books, and I found this one to be not as exciting and engaging as for example the gender game was. this serious seems to take too long to get rolling. in this book they spent so much time planning the main event, but I'd rather just get to the main event sooner without so much hemming and hawing. with the gender game and the girl who dared to think series I could barely put them down, I would stay in my car longer so that I could finish a chapter or hear what happens next. I just wasn't as on the edge of my seat with this one

Ugh

I found myself saying get on with it several times LOL the story drags and drags on with the narrator‘s thoughts & feelings. Not enough story and action way too much fluff. I won’t be listening to the next book… wish I hadn’t wasted my credits on this one

booksplaining

the first book in this series was pretty good but I just couldn't finish this one and I hate to leave a series unfinished. the author got to the point where she was over explaining everything. she doesn't show you anything through the story. it's all very plainly explained over and over again and most of the time the main character Robin explains something, then she explained that another character agrees with her and explains why, then explains that someone else doesn't agree and explains why, then goes through both sides to explain the different opinions. I kept listening hoping it would get better but when I had only 2 hours left in the book I realized that almost nothing had actually happened and decided not to waste anymore time. I don't know what happened to make the first book pretty good and the second book so annoying but I couldn't finish it.

Mixed Emotions

I finished this book pretty fast within days, mainly because it is nonstop action. The narrator does a really good job in changing the voices and the pace of it all - so that was good. However the main character is who I have issues with, she's just very predictable, her thoughts are all over the place - I don't like her. I had to read this book after reading the first one, to get closure. I do have to give credit to the author though because now I have to read the 3rd one after reading this one, a little frustrating though as well because what hooked me with The Child Thief STILL hasn't been solved or close to it.

Intense

This book was full of action and intense. The characters are more fully developed, and their relationships are starting to grow. The action really helps to promote the plot of the story.

Gripping and moves at a good pace,.

Interesting storyline. great narration. Leaving me ready for the next book in the series. Easy listening whilst also being intriguing enough to not want it to stop.
