it was ok but

I liked the story but found the female narrator hard to listen to. She kind of sounded like Captain Kirk.

Good story terrible narrator

I love the concept of the story. The most annoying female narrator ever though.... she read with so much emphasis on the last word of every sentence. Totally reminds me of how William Shatner talked in Star Trek. Lol

Overall, I liked the story so much that I’ll continue to the next book in the series.

Awful, only read if you’re under 14

I’m hesitant to write a bad review but this book was honestly not good. Maybe I shouldn’t have expected as much but the cover and synopsis made it sound like it was going to be a totally different book. It was basically the daily life’s of really well behaved teenagers. The shifter aspect was barely explored and they spent the entire story following the boring lives of the young characters. Sorry to the author because I know this was her debut novel but it was advertised as I was browsing paranormal romance novels. This is not a paranormal romance this is truly YOUNG adult.

Waste of time

Not only is the story absolutely terrible but the performance was even worse.... The title and cover of this book is totally deceiving!

Enjoyable storyline, terrible female narrator

Really enjoyed the storyline and the male narration (Joe Hempel) was well done. However, the female narrator (Laurel Schroeder) was horrendous! Her intonation and cadence was SO extremely distracting! She has that cadence that ends on a high, questioning note after every single sentence... It's annoying and aggravating as it totally detracts from the experience and even the actual story. It's enough for me to even consider skipping the rest of the trilogy!

Ehh...

It’s an interesting story concept; However, it is poorly written and the narration is soooo robotic!

Bad.

Character development and storyline is incredibly slow or non-existant. I could barely stomach this story due to the child-like writing and plot development. I hope a high-schooler wrote this. If you enjoy the inane day to day activities and thoughts of immature high-schoolers, this is the book for you. When I got to the part where they each took the Harry Potter quiz to find out what houses they belonged to I wanted to start banging my head against a wall. The readers are also annoying. The woman is breathy and places emphasis on her words and in sentences at the wrong points. The man's voice makes the male characters sound puny. I wish I could get my money back. The book cover is awesome though....so there's that.

Update: I just looked up the author. She is definitely a teen. Or near one. In that case....good job on this book. Everyone starts somewhere. Getting published so young is an accomplishment.

Horrible Narration!

I am quite interested in this story but I cannot stand the drawn out sounds at the end of every freaking word for the female voice and there is no difference between the guys voices. It's hard to track the story when there are only 2 different voices for 6 characters!
I wasted a credit! I will not finish this book.

The female narrator is too clipped/precise

The story line is intriguing. The characters are realistic and young adults. Not a book for readers over 40 as technology is realistically portrayed in the characters life. The cellphone messages portrayal stretches the length of the book but cuts too shortly the realistic time narratives and in between of plots. The female lead portrayed by the narrators readings are precise to the point of irritation. Don’t know why this book is not labeled YA Romance. Irritating dancing around erotic situations, hope the final culmination is worth the build up.

The female voice is annoying. Her "T"s are "tch"s

The female reader is annoying. Her "T"s are "tch"s and because i notice this so much, her "s" also rub me the wrong way too.

Its a good story though.

.

I tried to get into the book, but I just couldn't get passed the voice actor as she kept trying to fade her voice off at ever ending sentence. It's very distracting from just enjoying the book.
