Summary

How hard do you have to shake the family tree to find the truth about the past?

Fifteen year-old Rae Kerrigan never really knew her family's history. Her mother and father died when she was young and it is only when she accepts a scholarship to the prestigious Guilder Boarding School in England that a mysterious family secret is revealed.

As Rae struggles with new friends, a new school and a star-struck forbidden love, she must also face the ultimate challenge: receive a tattoo on her 16th birthday with specific powers that may bind her to an unspeakable darkness. It's up to Rae to undo the dark evil in her family's past and have a ray of hope for her future.

Over all a good read, after getting used to a bad welsh accent😯

At first I was more than a little put off by the awful accent by the reader, for the character in the book called (Molly)but it grew on me and was able to settle into the story. I see there are 2 more books that follow this set of six, however I don’t think I will bother with them , as the synopsis more or less told the rest of the story. I did enjoy the books and would give them 8 out of 10 .

Fantastic book

I love these books, having read them all I love being able to listen to them whilst doing housework. However the narraters accents are awful, I’m only on book 1 so I’m hoping they will improve.

Worse narration I have EVER heard

How on earth did this performance make it into Audible! It is such a shame as the story had real potential. I just could not take the absolutely terrible narration. Especially Molly's.. was that suppose to be Welsh? really? Gave up after book 1....

What an awful accent

If you could sum up The Chronicles of Kerrigan Box Set, Books 1 - 6 in three words, what would they be?

Really good story line with great characters

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Chronicles of Kerrigan Box Set, Books 1 - 6?

There were several good moments

What aspect of Sarah Ann Masse’s performance might you have changed?

The Welsh accent was terrible. It would have been better to not use an accent

Any additional comments?

The accent spoilt it for me

totally enthralling

What did you like most about The Chronicles of Kerrigan Box Set, Books 1 - 6?

even though the books were short,in total the story was well balanced and had depth to it, with some great characters
at times fast paced and full of action and others you delve deeper into the the characters and story line devepoment, but it is always entertaining and the longer you listened the more enthralling the story becomes

What other book might you compare The Chronicles of Kerrigan Box Set, Books 1 - 6 to, and why?

vampire academy is similar(with the obvious lack of vampires)

What about Sarah Ann Masse’s performance did you like?

ok dealing with the elephant in the room first!
some of sarah's accent's are horrendous! Molly is one of the main characters in the story and the welsh accent utterly abismal! if i had to guess i would say it's closer to a scottish pakistani than anything else and it took me a while to get my head around it, but if you ignore where she is meant to derive from and just listen to the story, she is totally adorable!
and in fact she is one of my favourite characters in the whole series.
other than accents Sarah does a wonderful job narrating, you dont have any problem deciding who is who when listening and her narration is very emotive which really pulls you deeper into the tale being told

Narrator needs better accents

I really enjoyed these stories and the adventures. The plots were a bit predictable and the heroine slightly one track minded but that is the way with young adult fiction.
I enjoyed these. My major gripe is that the narrator seemed to have no idea about how people from other countries sound. Molly as a case in point sounds like an L. A. Princess that has never been in the U.K.
And my lesser but glaringly evident gripe is, who in the world would drink espresso with sushi????
Fun summer read but don't expect too much.

dont buy until fixed

ok so i love the ideas behind the story. But there is huge problems. the first one in the inconsistencies the main character learns something and then in the next book hears the information and its all new to her again. the last 2 chapters of book 2 are missing it jumps straight to book 3. devons car changes from a lotus to a mustang wothout and explination as well as molly never driving her car after the first time. I may just be nit picking it but it realy bothered me i have no idea how book 2 ended.

Recording is missing several chapters

The first book is great. The second book ends without actually finishing the the book. like I've actually read the 2nd book and I know how it ends, and the reader move on to the 3rd book without even finishing the 2nd book.

I loved it

I loved this boxset. It was one adventure after the other and it had me hooked until the very end. I loved the narrator of this boxset. Her ability to use different voices for each of the characters was truly amazing and made the story so enjoyable. I really enjoyed it.

Good story

Good story. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Harry Potter, Vampire Academy or any other School Based Magical Books. Rae is a great character and you can really see how she has grown throughout the series.

My new favorite series and audio!

I was skeptical on the reader, mainly because Molly's voice was so irritating. Molly herself can be irritating but with a huge and genuine heart so after awhile I grew to like it, and was relieved to hear it a few times! I am now going to order the next books and follow this series to the end, and hope there never will be one. lol.

Loved it!!!

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. Wow! I loved this box set. There were so many twists and turns that my head is spinning! It kept me on the edge of my seat and up way too late listening because I just had to have one more chapter before going to bed. Needless to say, I didn't stop at just one chapter.

There are some inconsistencies between books and sometimes even within the same chapter. The narrator's voice is irritating at times. But overall it's a good series, and I can't wait to find out what happens next. I was screaming in my head "NOOOO" at the ending because it leaves you hanging. I can't say more without spoiling it for everyone.
