Summary

She’s always felt cursed. He’s being hunted. The prophecy foretold their encounter would change the fate of the world.

Ophelia is cursed with the ability to unwillingly siphon the secrets and emotions from everyone around her. But after a chance encounter with a stranger, she discovers she’s part of the powerful Conduit world, where gods and monsters are frightfully real, and her "curse" is actually her gift.

Elias has been hunted since his parents’ murder. Now, he’s the only one left who can stop the Conduit war that has been waged in the shadows of humanity for over 3,000 years.

Their meeting sets into motion a series of events divined in an ancient prophecy. What remains unclear is whether they are destined to be the catalyst for peace or the weapon that will annihilate the Conduit world and humanity as we know it.

Found is book one in Ashley Hohenstein’s Conduit Chronicles, an urban fantasy novel with a splash of romance. If you like Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid series and the imaginative writings of Charlaine Harris, then you will love this fantastical thriller that weaves gods, monsters, and magic together into a brand-new world that you won’t want to stop listening to!

Excellent first book - give me more!

This is a book which give us a great level of detail which the author can build on later in the novel to craft what is a very enticing world and a great premise for a book and series. It’s brilliant world building. I really like the depth of the characters. It also has a really great feel to the book. It makes the world feel normal even though it’s a sci-fi ish premise. I liked the pace of the book and it kept me interested and wanting more. The main character captured my interest from the start which made it easy get to drawn into the book. I always know I’m enjoying a book when I stop the car when I’m driving and sit listening for longer. I totally did that with this. I also really enjoyed the audio narration. It matched the work as well as being a great voice to listen too. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

All the beautiful people

Narration is really outstanding, she does great with an array of characters. Story is good, definitely has potential to be a really good series. There's a large and diverse cast of characters, each with a good back story. I thought the love triangle really slowed the story down and is my only complaint. Both males are supremely beautiful, total ass kickers, and so on. Lead female can't decide and is torn. Move that along and this could be a really fantastic series. I know I'll get some unhelpful votes for saying that even though I did like the book, so just click away....... “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

Intriguing

This was definitely an interesting and quite an intriguing story. When it began I felt as though I had missed some background information or something, however as book went along and I got into the story I felt more comfortable with it. It certainly was a unique story and had my interest through most of it though I felt as though it dragged a bit in the middle and I was wanting more to happen at one point. Unfortunately I felt unfulfilled at the end of the book as it is definitely not a stand alone. The story does not end and it is necessary to go on to book two to find out what happens to the main characters. It was a well written story however and quite enjoyable and it definitely leaves you wanting to know what happens next. Sarah Sampino is an amazing narrator. She does a variety of voices almost to perfection and brings the story to life with her narration. I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily provided an unbiased review. #AudiobookObsession Reviewer 🎧

Intriguing!

Found is a beautiful and descriptive fantasy romance. Despite the slow beginning, I soon found myself engaged and wondering. This was an enticing and alluring tale about a new supernatural world of powerful beings with incredible abilities. Ashley Hohenstein is a wonderful author with a delightful imagination. Both the plot and characters were well developed and captivating. Sarah Sampino, is an exceptional and very talented narrator, with the ability to perform a broad range of accents. Despite the various characters, I could easily tell them apart. Overall, Found was a fantastic listen, with great writing, plot and characters. Honestly, I can't wait for the second audiobook in the Conduit Chronicles. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Very imaginative!

First off I want to say I listened to this on audio and Sarah Sampino did an AMAZING job with this book. I have listened to her a lot and this is by far her best work. There are 9 or more characters with different accents and she really did a wonderful job with each of them! I could easily tell who was talking at any given time. That being said I did struggle with this book for a bit. It was slow and boring. I am telling you this so you can hang in there and get to the good part. It does happen. Then this turned into an lively book. There were multiple characters to keep track of. They all had different abilities and the fun was trying to figure out what they were and how they use them. This also has a bit of a Love triangle going on. I enjoy the push and pull off of these two men. This is my first book by this author and it engaged me after a point. The idea of the castle was so imaginative! Very Harry Potterish! By the end I am eagerly looking forward to more.

This is a fine and interesting book

I in no way mean three stars to be negative, but as a fair rubric to what is ultimately a fine book. Things I liked about the writing. The author clearly has though through her world building a lot. The attention to detail and continuity seems strong. There are several interesting character/power sets in this book. It is squarely urban fantasy without (so far) falling into the fey/wolf/wizard plot traps. Criticisms of the writing. There is a LOT of exposition. Like a lot. The main character is new to the world and is constantly having things explained to her. At the same time, she is almost a Mary Sue. Ophelia is not a Mary Sue because she does go through a lot of training, but everyone loves her immediately, and she knows a lot of very random and specific facts. Not to a completely unbelievable way, but I rolled my eyes several times. The author also fell deep into the love triangle cliches, two loyal, dedicated, handsome young* men falling allover themselves to make O happy. It gets annoying after a while. I think that either Elias needed to be way more unlikable or Lucas should have only been a best friend. The triangle distracts from the narrative and I hope it is cleared up by book two. Narration The narrator does a fine job with the main three characters. She is no James Masters but each has a unique voice that is distinct enough to tell who is speaking. I left three stars because of Rand's voice, which was so nastily and unpleasant. This is something that many readers do, but it took me out of the story. Spoilers Below The best parts of the book are the background, the author put a lot of though into the world and it shows. While I think she should have toned back on the exposition, it was also neat to know. I really liked the castle and wish that she would have explored the castles hyjinx more before burning it down. Conclusion I think that the second book deserves and opportunity to be read many series start off this way (high potential) and develop into a great read.

Ugh... Love triangle

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. While the book was good and the storyline was amazing for the most part, I disliked the love triangle. I have never been fond of love triangles and most books that have them, I skip. The narrator hit it out of the park. I was impressed with her and how she was able to capture all the different voices of all the characters

Excellent

I love this story! So much action and travel and history. The books world is built and explained so beautifully. The characters are rich and have so much depth. You can visualize each one clearly. You will love them and root for them. Sarah Sampino is an excellent narrator. She does so many accents and voices so well you will instantly recognize who is talking before it is even revealed.

love triangles

I was given this book for an honest review. this was a really good book. there where times where i was frustrated because i don't really like love triangles. Ophelia, Elias and Lucas where good characters i liked that you get to read about who they where and are. to see their struggles about thier bonds with one another. yet danger is at bay. now the story line was captivating. i really liked Elias and i cant wait to hear more about what happends to him and if he gets his soulmate which is ophelia. i will say total cliffhanger which i dont appreciate but i would read book 2 so im excited. would recommend.
