Summary

*Seven half-Walker girls. Seven worlds. One chance to save them all!*

Abigail Swish's life is nothing to brag about: gang-ridden city, orphanage style accommodations, and a matron who's kinda on the evil side.

Not that she has to worry about that for much longer. She'll turn 18 soon, and then it's goodbye compound, hello dangerous streets of New York City.

Of course, as her luck would have it, she doesn't make it to 18 before her world is turned upside down. One ambushed meeting with an accent-bearing, sword-wielding stranger, and suddenly her entire life as she knows it is a lie. Apparently she was just stashed on Earth for safekeeping and has been lost to her family ever since. And it's time to return home. To First World; a land of unimaginable beauty.

Of course, one should never forget how the old tale goes: beauty often hides the darkest secrets.

Good start, now for more....

I feel this is another nice little series I could easily get in to. If you liked the Gender Game series by Bella Forrest I feel you will easily like this. It's technically young adult ish, but I'm a big kid I guess and I found this very easy to listen to on my daily commute.

I'm intrigued to see how the series pans out as I feel it has a lot of potential to grow on me even more.

Red / Abigail / Arabella seems like a feisty female character so it will be nice to see how she develops and tackles the crazy tasks ahead of her.

The only character I don't really get is Lucy, she seems like an added extra with no purpose unless they are scene setting for later books. Who knows?????

I like the narration the pace and story could be a little faster but over all I feel its a real grower. Enjoy....

Great story but a bit slow pace

This particular book is a bit slow paced for my taste. Jaymin is a great author and knowing that this is her first published book, her first "baby" I can see the potential. Compared to other great books from Jaymin this one is a bit slow. The narrator did a good job, but the voices were not all that great. Other than that, overall, I like the story and where it's headed. An awesome series.

How have I not read this before now?!?

I have been an avid reader since the first time I was able to escape into a story. This book has it all and is one of the funniest, most genuine books I have ever read. I have now bought the next four books in the series because I am THAT confident/impressed. Very well done. Diverse characters. Complicated plot without getting muddled. Would recommend to...anyone who likes anything.

Do yourself a favor, and READ THIS BOOK

I have just finished this series and I had to come back here and let everyone know that this book is a MUST READ. Every single book in the series is delightful and immersive. I have grown so attached to all the characters that I feel like I know them personally. The world building in this book is amazing, and the character growth and maturity is so realistic. Gosh I cant say enough good things about this series! You must start here! You'll regret it if you don't.

FINALLY been waiting on this FOREVER!!

This is one of the best series I've ever had the pleasure of reading and now to my utter delight listen to. I've never had a series to elicit such emotion from me as Jaymin Eve's Walker Series. I enjoyed the narration of it I wish the narrator wouldn't make her breaths in so LOUD. I eventually was able to ignore it as I immersed myself in this wonderful story. you will NOT be disappointed.

too much focus on minor character

Lucy is the WORST. Couldn't finish the book because she exhausted me. Abby's attachment to Lucy also made her a less tolerable heroine.
