When the book first started, I thought it sounded very juvenile, but Marissa Mayer always weaves great stories and it grew on me quickly. Found I couldn’t stop listening to it. Both narrators are awesome.

Fantastic sci-fi

I just loved this book. Incredible story, easy to follow from a “tech” perspective. Taylor creates great characters who are easy to relate to. Ray Porter is so good as narrator! Recommended.

I don’t read a lot of sci-fi, but this was incredible and will cause me to read more. Sure, some of the technical bits got a bit too technical. But the story was awesome, and the imagination of travelling across galaxies 200 years from now blows my mind. Definitely going to be reading the next one in the series! The narrator’s voice takes a little bit of getting used to, but his accents are impeccable.

This is a must read for anyone who is interested in learning more about trauma. It’s long, and heavy, to be sure. But absolutely critical in understanding the impact of trauma on people and scientific research on how to heal that trauma.

I can see why this author is so highly spoken of. This was a stunning book. Insights into some aspects of life in Nigeria’s culture and politics, but more so into universal aspects of family, love, devotion, abuse, and how it all intertwines.

Stunning, relevant and moving

What an astonishingly relevant book. Several decades into the future, and the consequences of climate change, corporate power, racism and other modern day societal ills have manifested into our worst fears. Yet this book is delivered from the perspective of those who do it right, from a place of love, community, acceptance and fairness. I highly recommend this book.

One of the best series ever!

This has been one of the best series I’ve ever read! And the narration by Rebecca Soler made it truly unforgettable. This final book in the series was the perfect finish to an incredible journey. There was so much action and intrigue in this book and many sweet romantic moments. I am hardly a young adult, so to say that I love a YA series this much is quite a compliment. I found myself laughing out loud many times during the book. My favourite sections were some of the banter between Scarlet and Winter. Comedy gold. Highly recommended, no matter what age you are!

Great book with a different take on some of the usual “magical beings”. Well written. The only detractor was the slow drawl of the MC as delivered by the narrator. It took about 3/4 of the book to get used to it. Looking forward to more in the series.

So good!

Another incredible book in the series. I just love this series so much and how the story is progressing. So creative and gripping. Rebecca Soler once again did a truly incredible narration.
