"Col felt a stab of fear in his stomach. The Sirens were now close enough for him to see their crimson mouths open in a scream, pale faces blazing with white-hot anger, their bird claws tearing at the air."
When 11-year-old Connie is sent to live with her eccentric aunt by the sea, she’s not expecting anything great - not to make friends with Col, the coolest guy in town, and certainly not to discover that mythical creatures still exist, that an ancient society has protected them for centuries, and that a dark and treacherous force is lurking in their midst. Most of all, she doesn’t expect to learn that she has the rarest of talents, greater even than her secret ability to communicate with animals. With Col’s help, she could achieve unimaginable power - and face the terrifying choices that come with it.
In the tradition of Eragon, A Wrinkle in Time, and The Golden Compass, the first book in the Companions Quartet is a boldly original adventure that will ignite the imaginations and emotions of fantasy readers everywhere.

Great story, narrator takes some getting used to.
The story is really good. A scenario that could almost be real. The society for the protection of mythical creatures could almost be real.
The narrator is good too, although his whisper-shouting takes some getting used to, but I look forward to audible releasing the next one.
I adore this series :)

all the twists and turns were awesome even the narrator made it better! 10 out of 10!
I didn't like the Narrator's style whatsoever. His attempts at reading as different characters and with great emotion were just dreadful. I felt awkward just listening to intense parts of the story.
