This story just got more and more gripping as the story unfolded. The two main characters just keep unfolding, at times you’re not sure what past belongs to who.
I couldn’t listen to it fast enough. I ignored everyone!
This is a superb story.

I totally loved the story and was desperate to hear the ending.

There are a lot of twists and turns and you're never quite sure who is involved. It will grip you to the very end.

Born into the lowest class of her society, Flora 717 is a sanitation bee, only fit to clean her orchard hive. Living to accept, obey and serve, she is prepared to sacrifice everything for her beloved holy mother, the Queen. But Flora is not like other bees. Despite her ugliness she has talents that are not typical of her kin. While mutant bees are usually instantly destroyed, Flora is removed from sanitation duty and is allowed to feed the newborns, before becoming a forager, collecting pollen on the wing. She also finds her way into the Queen's inner sanctum, where she discovers secrets both sublime and ominous.

I totally loved the story. It held me to the very end and has made me think of bees in a different way.

It's totally different to what I normally read, but you still get the shocking moments yo keep you captive.

My favourite was the part with the drones before the hive shut down.

One of Sarah's daughters died. But can she be sure which one? A terrifying psychological thriller that will chill you to the bone. A year after one of their identical twin daughters, Lydia, died in an accident, Angus and Sarah Moorcraft move to the tiny Scottish island Angus inherited from his grandmother, hoping to put together the pieces of their shattered lives. But when their surviving daughter, Kirstie, claims they have mistaken her identity - that she, in fact, is Lydia - their world comes crashing down once again.

I liked the story very much. It held me all the way through. I liked the blurring of the the girls. The suspense of why Angus was so angry was very good, but I also felt he loved her. Sarah knew she was missing something, but not what.
