Publisher's Summary

Sara Grey's world shattered 10 years ago when her father was brutally murdered. Now, at 17, she is still haunted by memories of that day and driven by the need to understand why it happened. She lives a life full of secrets, and her family and friends have no idea of the supernatural world she is immersed in or of Sara's own very powerful gift.

In her quest for answers about her father's death, Sara takes risks that expose her and her friends to danger and puts herself into the sights of a sadistic vampire. On the same fateful night she meets Nikolas, a warrior who turns Sara's world upside down and is determined to protect her even if it's the last thing she wants.

Sara's life starts to spin out of control as she is hunted by an obsessed vampire, learns that her friends have secrets of their own, and reels from the truth about her own ancestry. Sara has always been fiercely independent, but in order to survive now she must open herself to others, to reveal her deepest secrets. And she must learn to trust the one person capable of breaking down the walls around her.

Better for younger teens

I found it soooo hard to get into this book. I made it to chapter 3 and couldn't make it any further. pretty sure I would have loved this in my teens. Not a fan of the narrator.

YA at its best

This is not my normal genre but I really enjoyed. Some chemistry but no steam. A great adventure for all ages. Looking for a good story that happens to be clean, this is a good choice.

Outstanding Plot & Characters

I picked this audiobook up looking for something to listen to at work. I'm so glad I found this trilogy. I now own the books and audiobooks. The characters and plot are engaging and suspenseful. This book will have you sitting on edge of your seat waiting to see what is going to happen. I could easily relate to Sara and her desire to live life on her own terms. Sara is incredibly tenacious and independent which adds a bit of humor when dealing with Nikolas. Her strength and loyalty to those she loves no matter their "differences" is very admirable and makes her that much more lovable. The different creatures in this literary world are fascinating and add so much depth to the existing story. If you haven't read/listened to this book and enjoy the paranormal I highly recommend it!

Did not expect to love it.

I started this book thinking I would not like it. I loved it though. It was very good. The writer did a great job. The narrator made the book so enjoyable. I would recommend this book to anyone into the fantasy world of mythical creatures. Anyone looking for a good adventure book to read it is definitely full of them. Can't wait to start the next in the series.

If my ears could smile...they would!

Caitlin Greer brings Karen Lynch's books to life!!! I wasn't able to put the book down when I was reading it and I wasn't able to turn the audiobook off either! I listened to it in the car, while working out, while cooking dinner...it was great! I love Caitlin's voice and I feel she really brought the characters to life. This book was so easy to listen to - I really can't wait to listen to the next ones in the series.

Refreshing storyline

Loved the characters and plot, felt really drawn in and wasn't overly chatty dialogue of characters. Great balance of book plot history (bat actual history, but characters) and great use of highs/lows and shock value! Heading towards Refugee now!

Brilliant!

Saw the great reviews and settled on it. it's more than worth the credit. You have friendship, action, family, and many other elements that makes a book amazing. The characters, plot, and pace was perfect and I have no complaints. I'll be using my other credit on boo two. I cannot wait to find out what happens to our leading lady and her friends. Best book I've read in a while!

Meh

I’m a couple hours in and...how does someone not know what an orphan is? How can you tell a persons age by their voice? The writing is not that great and the narration doesn’t help at all. I tried slowing it down because the narrator speaks quickly but then is was way too slow. At least she tried to use different tones for different characters unlike other narrators but it wasn’t done well. I just can’t. I can’t.

A gem of a story

This story grabbed my attention right from the start and kept it to the very last word. It was imaginative, had a slew of great characters, plenty of action and some hints of romance too. The descriptive writing, believable characters and engaging plot quickly pulls you into a world of excitement, suspense and action. Sara, the main protagonist, is a strong female character with a kind, protective nature and a determined personality and you can not help but like her. Her discovery of her power and origins, the dangers, changes and difficulties she faces endears you to her and you become invested in her life and development. Hints of future romance with the fierce warrior, Nicolas, adds interest and anticipation to the story and I will look forward to seeing how this develops in the rest of the books. The narration on the audiobook was excellent, her tone, pitch and intonation changed with each character giving then all individual voices and personalities. She did a great job of both the male and female characters and hit all the different accents well. I enjoyed this story and look forward to listening to its continuation in the next audiobook. I received the audiobook at no cost and under no obligation.

Seemed promising at first

Unlike the others, I liked the narrator. The story had a great start in the beginning and the heroine seemed honourable. She was kind, helpful and took care of injured animals. The male love interest was oh so mysterious and beautiful. It had all the ingredients for a decent paranormal romance (kinda). The biggest problem that I couldn’t look past was the blatant girl-hate. Every teenage girl with the exception of the protagonist was so catty. I also couldn’t relate to a heroine who had no female friends cuz all girls are either bitches or dumb blonds who drool over hot guys right? Oh and I’m so tired of the over bearing “I’m not like other girls” cliche.

Sorry I stopped listening after 12 chapters as the story got too juvenile for my taste. Maybe I would’ve loved this if I were 14-16 (the intended audience I believe) so I gave it 3 stars.
