Publisher's Summary

For some, hopes, dreams, and ambitions come easily. Not so much for Lilith.

Created by one of the most feared supervillains, Shadowmind, she has no past of her own and only a passing familiarity with the world as it is. With a death sentence hanging over her head due to who created her and how, she escaped into the world to see and explore, and perhaps find a meaning to her life. There, she encounters heroes and villains alike, including those who brought her maker to justice.

Gina and Rachel are superheroines in San Francisco, and freak chance brings them into contact with Lilith. As they interact, the three grow to be friends...but with villains after them, who knows what the future will bring?

    Story
    "like the story... most characters are too simple."

    I really liked the story, the narrator has workable distinctive voices. What I find annoying is that most characters have being very simple such as most males come in three flavors evil stupid, good stupid and stupidly irritating. Hoping to see the next one.

    Story
    "Above average, has potential. "

    I had to adjust to the narrator. She's not the best, but far from the worst also. Once I did adjust, I was properly immersed into the story.

    I read so many books about powerful characters where they frustratingly display their power so little. It leaves you feeling disappointed and unfulfilled. This was not one of those books, so kudos to the author for that.

    Based on this book and reviews I've read for his other books, I've concluded this author is obsessed with lesbians, so if you're reading this review after reading his other books, be prepared for more lesbians. For what it's worth, in this story I enjoyed the lesbian element.

    I look forward to listening to the next book. I probably wouldn't have bought this book if i had known the remaining were not out yet. I hate waiting for new books in a series. Also, this book could have been a bit longer with more progression.

    "Magic"

    Benjamin Medrano has an amazing talent for world building, in addition to making strong lead characters that are interesting and fascinating- when coupled with Sara Beth Goers awesome voice acting giving every character their own unique voice you get something magic to listen to.

    "Boring"

    This was bar none the most boring superhero book I've ever listened to. The dialog was terrible, the narrator's voice was annoying, and the author seems like he's trying to write Americans as stuck up British people. This isn't a novel. It's a train wreck in text.

    Story
    "Good story but not great, spoken well throughout"

    This novel is very much in the style of super hero stories - and consequently lacks somewhat in character motivations and scale of the plot. in spite of this, it is a very enjoyable read, with the plight of the lead character drawing the reader in. My biggest problems with the story concerned the history of the world (which played little role, but made me feel as though it hadn't been deeply thought through) and the timescale (which felt rushed). The behavior of the heroes also annoyed me more than the villains' - even though their behavior was genuinely abhorrent.

    Story
    "Fun."

    This is over the top, silly, campy, and often inconsistent, but very fun. If you want an uncomplicated and silly book that doesn’t require much thought has superheroes, villains and plenty of ham this isn’t a bad choice.

    "A good story with a nice voice that tells it."

    I don't listen to a lot of audible books, but I wanted to support the author more. what wasn't my surprise when I really liked Sarah's voice and the story. She gave even more emotion and depths to the characters!
