read with skill, this book had me hooked from the sample, shocking considering I've never read this author nor heard this performer before. Sara Kin..Show More »g has written strong lead characters, a lot of them female, and Allyson Johnson has managed to make sound strong. Audible should stick to readers like her where the main protagonists are female as so many male readers make them sound whiny and petulant regardless of how heroic they are. So, if you want a gripping listen, go for this one, you will find yourself looking for excuses to shut out the world and find out what happens next! As for me? I bought the 2nd book a minute after I finished the first one!
