Nothing I thought it was a splendid story and very smart story line
The description of the characters
Yes very much so
its emmerging concept
her natural vocalisation and simple accentuation
CJ Rutherford.s “in the Never” series
Hey if I am to take the time to review something you gonna get it wit 2 smoking barrels, (the perk of CJ not knowing where i live)
I start with the praise for his chosen narrator Katie Welburn
It is a breath of fresh air, to listen to the tones of someone who does not carry the garlic stench of a real strong accent. Allowing you to feel more involved with the characters, and her grasp at the We Irish accent made me believe she had even seen the commitments. all praise to the Narrator.
But to business, “the never” series. Lucky for me i was advised to start with prequel Origins, More a novella, but it got me hooked, so much so I continues straight onto Soles and Worlds.
From the innocent of Belfast to vast multi-worlds sounds a quandary however Its all here, with CJ’s Hometown of Belfast being the anchor that pulls this all together.
so i will summarise, “of the Never" are a compelling read, a fantasy sci fi with a little true love added. The development of its lead character (OMG its a woman) leaved the door open for some amazing continuations. The main additional characters begin life fooling me to believe they are Normal even bland, but pretty soon you have to open your mind to maximum as it seems CJ took a large dose of the Irish Pixy dust. “that escalated a little” came to mind as it fell into where i love a story to sit.
"An amazing fantasy!"
I absolutely loved the prequel to this. It set the scene but was also going to be hard to follow up. But CJ Rutherford managed to surpass it! This was fantastic!!
Katherine is a normal girl, but her dreams are anything but! They feel like they are getting worse and darker, but she is also dreaming of a certain boy, and when that boy turns up she is both thrilled terrified.
Derren is from Sanctuary and has been searching for the girl from his dream too. He finds her in Katherine and what follows is an epic journey of discovery, a battle between good and evil, and a sweet romance.
I absolutely loved everything about this book! The characters were well written and developed and were all amazing. The plot was fast paced, intriguing, and gripping. I devoured the book!! Right from the very first page the author grabs your attention and doesn't let go. This book is filled full of magic, dragons, different worlds and so much awesomeness!! It's a must read.
I have to say that this author is one to watch. The writing in this is amazing and as for the world building, well that was phenomenal!! I will be keeping a real close eye on this author and series!
The narrator was awesome!! I really liked her narration and thought she did a good job. She gave everyone their own voice and had the right tone for all the situations.
*I received a copy of this for review, this in no way affects my thoughts.*
"Great Start to a Fascinating Series"
This was one of the most unique books I've listened to in awhile. It was a great start for what will be an amazing series.
The story is told from the points of view of two main characters. One is in the modern world, the other in a very different parallel reality. They are both plunged into a battle against evil that as raged for thousands of years across countless worlds.
When reading or listening to a book, I can't help but to try and predict where the story is headed. This was one of the most well-written, least predictable books I've had the pleasure of listening to in a long time. I will admit that this is one of those books that only starts making sense after the first few chapters, and I was sometimes a little confused, but overall the book was so great that I can't even complain about that. In the end, everything comes together and I can't wait to go on to the next book.
The performance by the narrator in this book was nothing short of fantastic. Real top-notch narration.
I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.
This is not my style of book usually but the author and narrator have me hooked and wanting more. can't wait for the rest of the series!!!
"Souls of the never"
I really enjoyed this story, and thought the author ended the book in a perfect spot. I felt satisfied, and I definitely look forward to reading the next book A very good audiobook to listen to.
"I LOVE WHEN I FIND NEW AUTHORS"
I LOVE WHEN I FIND NEW AUTHORS & NARRATORS I LOVE!! I am enjoying CJ Rutherford's Books! SO HAPPY I FOUND HIM AS AN AUTHOR!! I CAN'T WAIT TO READ/LISTEN TO MORE! KATIE DID AN AMAZING JOB!! ON TO THE NEXT ONE!! DEFINITELY WORTH A LISTEN!!
"Great narration, Story was fun."
Yes, the print version would require guesswork of intonation at the beginning of the book when you're still figuring out the relationship between each character.
Focusing less on the physicality of romance, more on the big picture of beating the bad guys.
Inflection & Intonation from a girl named Katherine. The experience became much more real! Ms. Welbrn's reading makes sure you're engaged in the story. She has a good range of voices, and her talent of utilizing pace / tempo seems to improve throughout the book.
One exceptional girl challenges the threats of evil that spans the realities
While I was a bit confused with the characters' relationships at the beginning, I eventually figured things out and enjoyed a great novel.
"Souls of the Never"
I really enjoyed the book. I don't normally spend time reading sci-fi/fiction books. The time hopping can be confusing at times, but it does make the book a bit more interesting. The narrator is enjoyable to listen to. I have listen to audible books before that were painfully boring to listen to the narrator. I definitely plan on following the entire series.
"Entertaining YA Fantasy Book"
Action packed fantasy that expands through space and time. When you start this journey, know there is a lot of road to cover and many characters to meet. Hold on for the ride, and you will not be disappointed. The places and characters you meet will be fascinating and sometimes frightening. I have so many questions that I can't wait to read the next book. Highly entertaining. the narrator rocked and brought the book to life. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
"Wonderful start to the series"
I received this book for free for an honest and unbiased review
Yes it takes a minute to get things straight with relationships etc... But once u jump that hurdle you get one hell of a book with substance and one hell of a narration!
Honestly I was nervous starting this book but glad I took the plunge into a genre that is out of my comfort zone.
Worth a credit - most definitely!!!!
"Soul mates and magic"
Fighting evil across worlds while searching for his soulmate. Full of wonderful characters and a rich story of good vs evil. "This audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast."
