Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by K. Axel | 2/11/2014

    " This is just one weird book, and not good weird. I don't think I ever figured out what the fuss about, or even what the story was about. I'm certainly not going to read it again to remember, so this one will just have to rest in peace with the rest of the bad books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jeanne | 2/7/2014

    " I found this book at the library. It looked interesting and different from much of what I've read and it sure was. I liked the heroine. Her adventures were exciting and not predictable at all. There still remains much mystery and unanswered questions so I look forward to continuing with this series. I believe there are 4 books written so far, I am not sure how many will be in this series. I especially like the strong female roles in this book. The quality of this first book for Kristen just makes me even more excited to keep reading her work as I know she will get better and better as she continues to write. This book is just the beginning of a great writing career for Ms. Britain. "
