Every High School has their social outcasts. The band nerds, the math geeks, the chess club, the girl that chews her hair, but at Butler High, even the creepy nose picker in the chess club is more popular than Caleo Anima. No matter what he did, his pale skin, snow white hair, and piercing blue eyes always made him an easy target. He used to think that the only way things could get worse would be if someone found out that he was gay, but that isn't even the tip of the iceberg of problems after a mysterious stranger shows up and changes Caleo's life forever.

Its horrible, I listened for over 2 hours and was cringing throughout. the narrator would be bad even if the audio didn't include every gulp, lip smack and wet sound associated with talking too close to a microphone. the narration made every character seem like the same person and didn't even attempt to make his voice more feminine when speaking a females dialog in fact some times their voices were deeper than the males. The story is too fast paced, with a basic plot and no real character depth

From the reviews I was expecting a gripping fast paced and intense story instead It was completely rubbish. The characters are lacking in both description and substance but It was the narration that was the worst, battle scenes were narrated slowly like one would read a children's book aloud it took all of the intensity and excitement from the entire book.
