Was a bit slow at the start, but maybe as this was the first time I had read anything from this author, wasn't sure what to expect. I was happy I stuck with it as Lisa Gardner has a way of building suspense and drawing one into her story. Well worth the daily deal it cost me and would definitely consider other novels by this author.

I had purchased this book as a Daily Deal, as I needed something to fill in the time until my next Credit arrived. Was not aware of this author and very surprised at how quickly the time flew, listening to this novel. As there were two narrators, it was so easy to follow the tale, and the love/hate relationship between the two main characters. I found myself extending my automatic shut off time more often than not and was beginning to believe I would have to purchase yet another book before my monthly credit became available. I was a bit sad to come to the conclusion of this audio book, wishing it would continue. This is only because it was a 'good listen', not because it NEEDED a different ending. I am very happy I made this choice as a follow up purchase. Hopefully you will feel the same.

Do you dare step through the red door? Spencer Grant had no idea what drew him to the bar with the red door. He thought he would just sit down, have a slow beer or two, and talk to a stranger. He couldn’t know that it would lead to a narrow escape from a bungalow targeted by a SWAT team. Or that it would leave him a wanted man. But now Spencer is on the run from mysterious and ruthless men. He is in love with a woman he knows next to nothing about. And he is hiding from a past he can’t fully remember.

Enjoy listening how ever there are a few places where there are breaks in the audio and I was afraid it would not continue. Maybe it has been listened to so many times there is now a problem? Would advise your technician check in to this before further purchasing takes place.

Of course I want to be like them. They're beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever. And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe. One terrible morning, Jude and her sisters see their parents murdered in front of them. The terrifying assassin abducts all three girls to the world of Faerie, where Jude is installed in the royal court but mocked and tormented by the Faerie royalty for being mortal.

#Audible1 I had originally bought this as a fill in to read, awaiting my next credit purchase. Was pleasantly surprised that I found the story quite interesting, and enjoyed how the characters grew. Although based on fantasy, I still got drawn into everyone's plight, and always looked forward to the next chapter. The narrator was very good; clear and distinctive between each individual so I had no trouble following along.

In the end, even though it WAS a 'fill in' for me, I can see me possibly purchasing Book 2 as I would like to know how the story comes to conclusion.
