... I am about 20 years outside of the target audience but I gave the first one a go and found it to be a really easy trilogy to listen to. The narrator is absolutely top dollar and I’ve now found others of his to listen to after such a good performance here. The story is full of the normal teenage angst and the odd bizarre decision but it’s fast paced and easy to listen to. The ending keeps replaying in my mind. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic!

This has been the best book I’ve listened to in a very long time and certainly includes the best narration I’ve ever heard! I was initially a bit put off by the length of it but it absolutely flew by and I’m just off to purchase the next one now!

Enjoyable & well narrated

Both the author and narrator are new to me so I have been really pleased to find the combination is such a good one! Well paced plot, engaging characters and fabulous narration, I will certainly look for the next in the series!

Good story

Enjoyed the story but the narrator got on my nerves, all the female voices sounded like they were about to cry, but the most irritating part was the actual narration between speaking parts. I appreciate all narrators, it’s not a job that I could do st all, but I’m on the fence as to whether I can listen to the next book in the series or not which is a shame.

Well I enjoyed the actual concept and the story but blimey did it get a bit wordy at times, just felt like it was trying to be clever when it could have been more succinct and less rambly! Love the narrator though and would probably recommend the book but it wasn’t my favourite from this author.

Thoroughly enjoyed this and I’m glad it’s the first in a series, really liked the narrator too but I see he hasn’t done the second which is a shame!

I bought this ages ago and was then a little put off by the reviews saying that the narrator was naff - I personally didn’t find that to be the case at all and I enjoyed his narration, there were distinct voices for each character and yes he does use a higher pitch to show that it’s a woman talking but I’m not sure what else a man is supposed to do to sound like a woman?! Good story too and I’ll definitely listen to more from this author and narrator.

Kept me hooked

Well .... what can I say! I can’t remember why I got this book and it sat in my downloads for ages as I couldn’t quite bring myself to listen because I knew it was about a little girl going missing. I started with a slight feeling of apprehension but I was hooked by the narrators. It’s a slow burner and it isn’t a complex story but it brilliantly told and there are some twists and turns that you don’t expect. The ending had the hair on my arms standing up on end! This isn’t a seat of your pants book so don’t expect it to be massively fast paced, but it’s easy reading and beautifully narrated and I would recommend it.

Enjoyable listen

.... I loved it!!

As Sean Barrett is my favourite narrator I was looking through others that he had done & I came across this, every single review was 5 stars so I thought I’d give it a go & I am so glad I did, what a fantastic book & absolutely stellar narration, it all came to life within moments of the book starting, fabulous characters & utterly believable despite being complete fantasy! And the moral of the story is .... always bet on Sean Barrett!!
