I got this book in exchange for an honest review. And I really have to admit that I struggled with it, for a few reasons.
The world building..Show More » was good, there seemed to be ample reasons to the why our protag Aislin, is as she is. I think I had to get through the first half of the story to really start to like here a bit though. The second half defo picked up a lot more and I did find myself more engaged. This is the first of Ann's books that I've read or listened to and I do think I'm looking forward to the next one in the series.
There was a lot more sexy scenes than I had thought there would be and personally I think that detracted from the characters depth and the main story line. So I wasn't sure if this should have an erotica tag rather than the sci-fi post-apocalyptic feel that it has.
I do think that the narration seemed to be disjointed at times. I think she did a good job of all the characters though they were distinguished enough for me not to think too hard who was speaking with the tags.
I have the second book to listen to this week maybe that will feel better to me, I shall defo let you know. Many thanks for the opportunity to listen to something new.
As with the first book, I was given this in exchange for my honest opinion.
Once I'd gotten used to the narrator through the first book, thi..Show More »s was a nice addition to the world created. I think anyone who listened to the first book would really enjoy this, it ties up lots of loose ends, and yet still leaves you with some questions.
Of course, lots of action, and sexy scenes which I think is handled better in this book and at least I was expecting it. I think the characters especially Aislinn grows a lot in this, she had so much thrown at her in the first book I wasn't expecting this journey to be as hard, but it was in very different ways. She's a very strong woman and I can identify with her for pulling on through sometimes against all the odds.
Really worth listening too, and I think that Caroline improved her character voices and tone through this book. I look forward to more, I think there is another one, not 100% sure on that, if it's written or in audio : ) but I will find out.
