weak reader

Reader mispronounced words, used inconsistent character voices and dialects. Monotonous vocal cadence caused me to lose interest in the story.

Great story!

I loved the storyline of this book. However, I must give HUGE kudos to the narrator. His voice, all the accents and difference for each character made this one of the most enjoyable books! Thanks to both the narrator and author!

Wonka’s Mortal Instruments

Unique and engaging storyline but I found the world & character building to be a bit awkward in execution sometimes. The narration did not work for me so perhaps that lessened the experience. Overall a good first installment and premise for a solid series :)

Enjoyable

I was hoping for a little more supernatural in this. Truly her being a Seer is important to the plot but not in the way I expected. This is a story of rebellion with a touch of special powers. Once you understand that, it's a strong story and the Seer will play a pivotal role and that pushes the reader forward to the next in the series. I want to know what her role truly is. I have to say I loved the candy. It was an unusual touch that was fun and gave the story an edge. The narration was much better than others I have heard recently. The narrator is engaging but is best when narrating the dialogue of those with the Scottish brogue. Overall, this was enjoyable especially when I truly understood the story. I received a copy from the author; all opinions are my own.

Love the story, narration is just okay

I really enjoyed the story and I’m definitely going to pick up the next one. There is something very charming about a candy making Seeress trying to save her family and using weaponized sweets. Not to mention Scotland and tall, handsome Scotsmen with their sexy accents. I’m pretty much sold! The story was creative and entertaining, mixing elements you don’t usually expect to go together. It’s a story of family and heritage set against a backdrop of tyranny and rebellion which is eerily accurate even in the real world. My only complaint is that the narration wasn’t super. The good news is she did a decent job of navigating accents, which I don’t think is any small feat! However, when not doing dialogue it was very dry and almost sort of monotone. I think I would have enjoyed the book more if I’d read it, rather than listened to it.

It was okay

I really loved the cover and the blurb pulled me in. Sadly, the narrator was mediocre at best and it was really hard to listen to it. It was difficult to listen to it at a faster pace so I wasn’t able to do that this time. I would recommend that you listen to the snippet and see if this narrator is for you. The characters were okay in this book but I didn’t feel any connection towards them.

Let down

I really wanted to love this book but for some reason I found myself disappointed in it. I've been thinking about it for days and I believe the reason is because the story just didn't live up to my expectations despite having a fairly fantastic narrator. There has been a lot of buzz about this series among some of the reader/author groups and I had already purchasing the box set for my Kindle (although I haven't read any of it) so when I had the opportunity to review the audiobook I was incredibly excited. Unfortunately it just seemed way younger and less mature than I expected. The main character's father is abducted and she finds out scary things about him and their life along with hiding her own secret but so much of the book is focused on her attraction to "the love interest" rather than the desperation I believe she should be focused on. Admittedly, her love interest sounds like the perfect mix of brains, humor, and attractiveness so in any other circumstances I would be like "get it girl" but if the person I love most in the world is abducted and held hostage by the most murderous clan in the country I wouldn't give a single thought to a lingering touch or seductive smile; I would tear the world apart with my rage and direct that towards anyone that's trying to distract me from exacting my revenge. That budding relationship clearly degrades the book's integrity and makes the storyline just a way for the main character to learn her powers and get the guy. And that all really sucks because the book has so many things that would usually make me love it and the narrator brought it fully to life but that aspect of the story made me dislike the entire thing. I really don't know if I'll continue the series on my own.

Seer YA

I loved the premise of the candies with magical abilities. I honestly wish I got to know more about the candies and their magic along with how they worked. It was fun to learn about the different effects the candies can have on people. I wanted to learn more about the magic too but it was really fascinating. The main character grew on me as the story went on and I liked her friends and love interest. The accents were great to get to listen to I really enjoyed this book and want to know what will happen next. I hope the candies continue to be part of the stories since they were so much fun. I can’t wait to learn more about the world and what will happen next.

Willy Wonka meets Braveheart.

This is a unique story world, at first I was picturing an old setting, because America was referred to as the colonies. But then someone used a cell phone and I realized it was actually an AU with an Alt history. the characters were great. Well written with realistic chemistry. The performance brought them to life with convincing Scottish accents.

Edinburgh Seer

This was an interesting book. When I read the summary I was expecting the Seer to be more on the "supernatural side". It had a good story line. I got a little confused with the characters in the beginning. The narrator was not very consistent with the characters. I am still interested in what might happen in the next book.
