Interesting 🤔

Timekeeper by Rebekah Dodson seems to have a lot of promise as a great book. The story is interesting with so much possibly, but is too short and the author did not develop the plot well. I listened to it twice to make sure I didn’t miss something and still found myself confused as to how Lydia ended up where she did in the end. Hopefully, the second book will bring it all together.

The narrator, Andrew McDermott, gave another stellar performance! His Irish brogue is always a joy to listen to.

Good read

Timekeeper (Realm of Elestra Book 1), my first read from author Rebekah Dodson. Well written & enjoyable. Narrator Andrew McDermott’s accent was perfect for this book and added greatly to the listening enjoyment. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it.

Pretty Decent Short Story - Worth the Listen

So firstly, the narrator Andrew McDermott is Irish, and when I say Irish, I mean he has a strong Irish accent. But it never took me out of the story, and had an oddly soothing, ASMR-like tone to it all.

The story as a whole was much better than I expected, as most books of this genre seem to be very cliche and badly written - story and character arc wise. I hope that Rebekah Dodson continues with this series because I can't wait to see what else can come. Just wanted it to be a longer story, so it was a shame when it ended :)
