Summary

There are only a few things Mila is afraid of. Most are pretty common fears, but there is one that sets her apart from those around her. The fear of a secret. With one drop of blood, her secret of a power beyond anything anyone had ever seen before is unleashed, landing her in a place where she is a prisoner. And an experiment. And there are only a few that know their dictator's ultimate goal. Some are willing to save her, others want to exploit her for their own dark and sinister intentions, and it is up to her to stop them before it's too late.

Thrilling and intriguing

This wonderfully written book had me hooked from the very first page, I could not stop listening! The author writes this enthralling story paying particular attention to the small details. The brilliant, innovative narration really brought the characters to life for me, I especially liked the Tanoy which was an ingenious touch. I cannot wait to listen to the next book in this series.

Bloody Brilliant!

I had no idea that I would ever be so interested in a book about such weird people and fantasies. Listening to Angel Clark tell Mila's story, though, made it all seem so believable. The book may not be real but my anticipation for the next one sure is!

Absolutely nothing but awesomeness, Kindra Sowder

Kindra Sowder's best work to date. I was told by a very good friend that when I got to a part i would not want to put it down. All I can say "Understated, No shit Sherlock" Now where is the next Audible file!!!!

So many useless words ...

Narration: Okay if a bit overly dramatic. The cadence and intonation frequently at odds with what I felt should have been the emotion context of the text. The cast of voices was actually pretty good, if only there were more dialogue.

So many useless words ...
Mutant is discovered by the government and becomes a victim of an expected forced rendition to a secret lab where they conduct experiments while said prisoners plot their inevitable revenge ... now add details to make it interesting ... except that doesn't happen here.

What we get instead is an entire chapter on how to cook and eat green beans? This type of detail is not good world building and does not advance the main plot. Just as aggravating is the perpetual perseveration on the same dramatic element for pages of internal soliloquy (oh the drama of it all). Stir in some ridiculous science and I was nearly screaming at the speaker about how that is not how any of this works (hint: when atoms split really bad things happen ... except in this story where you just bleed a little bit). I kept hoping the story would pick up, but except for a few rare parts, it never really did.

Then we get to the main character ... I can tolerate a fair amount of youthful angst, but Mila hit my limit pretty quickly. The constant introspection was driving me bat crazy with how if took forever to resolve ... only to circle back to it later and do it again. I really do have a low threshold for drama (so if that is your thing, feel free to consider my rating 1 star higher). I just could not connect to any of the characters at all. By the time we get to the point where MC is revealed to be truly monstrous, any sympathy I may have had for that character completely evaporated. She was forced to make a choice ... she chose poorly. In the end, I did not really see much in the way of character growth before we get the pseudo cliffhanger ending (no real resolution yet) and a detailed setup/info-dump for the next book.

This title is also currently available on Kindle Unlimited ...
