Great story

I read this book a couple of years ago so was very pleased to hear it was coming to audible. The book is brilliant as it follows jax and yffrey as they have to fight a tyrannical maniac in yffrey's world and travel through three worlds to do so. The narrator fitted the style of writing perfectly and made the story even better

Fast-paced and exciting

I have never finished an audiobook so quickly - and then been so sad it was over too fast!

This is one of the best fantasy stories I’ve listened to in a long time. I was hooked right from the beginning. Crossovers between a magical universe and our own world are among my favorites, and this one did not disappoint. I’m also a sucker for the exact type of strong women in this story.

Neither Yfrey nor Jaques are perfect, and they aren’t buff women with superpowers, unless you count their ability to use magic to their advantage. They both have a bit of a past, and part of the story is coming to terms with their own histories while attempting to save Yfrey’s world from a tyrant. It’s brilliantly done. There’s enough world building to help us understand how each woman has some degree of culture shock, but it’s not so in depth as to be dull or detract from the storyline.

The narration is brilliant. It’s smooth and clear, and I loved all the different voices of the characters. The narrator and story are an excellent match.

All in all, this is just so well done.
