Two souls in a multiverse of many planets .

What did you like most about The Mark of Noba?

Completely different than my usual read. I really liked the relationship growing betweenTetra and Sterling and how he had to teach her the basics of human culture it was sweet,funny and a non stop source for the story and characters to delve in to.

What did you like best about this story?

It made me laugh and cry(a lot) and it has the potential to go far as a series.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I think I enjoyed the part where Tetra first came to live with Sterling and he had to write rules so she didnt take her bra off infront of him ect .Things a human would know but the culture on Noba clearly is very different.Very amusing.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was, but there are only so many hours in a day so from the time I got home til the time I went to sleep I was a captive audience.

Any additional comments?

Good YA Fantasy Novel

Overall The Mark of Noba is a good YA fantasy novel. The characters are engaging, the plot keeps you interested, and the twists are entertaining. While I did find Sterling's "typical" high school experience pre-alien appearance a bit unbelievable Tetra is a great character and her backstory really pulled me in.

Story was pretty amazing!!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I loved the story but wish there had been more background given. It's like the Authors were no longer interested in writing anymore in this series. Very disappointed that there wasn't a second book in the series.

Memories. Aliens. Disappearances.

Fantastic story! This book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I literally couldn't put it down. The story flowed well, the missing memory gaps to the truth behind the magical powers, and the mysterious girl from another planet. Wow. They're in high school, and have to go about their normal lives, knowing an evil alien lurks nearby, causing kids to disappear.
The plot, the tension, and the intrigue. All of this was brilliant. I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next one.
The narration was well done.

ANOTHER GOOD READ!

I enjoyed it! I have read other books by these authors and now I finally get to read their debut novel! This book was full of adventure and had a humorous vibe at times. This was different than the other books I have read because of the YA genre which was still entertaining. The narration was good. The author did a good job with the character builds and plot. I look forward to reading more books by theses authors! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Pretty good

I am not a fan of YA. Let me just put that out there. Teenage angst and all that annoy me as I truly do not recall all that in school when I was younger. However, this was such a good story. Sterling and Tetra's characters are so well written. They both stayed true to their characters throughout the whole story. I admit to the beginning being a little rough to get into but it is well worth it. I loved it and can't wait to see what's next.

A Fair Start To A YA Series.

Sterling Wayfairer, a Noban, is a high school senior on Geo, an Earth-like world. Sterling, who is about to come into strange powers. Tetra is a girl from Noban, who travels through time and space to make contact with Sterling, the boy she is somehow bonded to. Enter the Naga, a strange and powerful creature who is hell bent on killing Sterling and you have the beginning of the Wayfairer series. I found this YA novel a bit slow in pace, but it did keep my attention. With that said, I don’t know that I would pick up the next book in the series.

Finally, this audio book was provided at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Boom.

Interesting Fantasy Story

I liked this story, but I'm still not really sure I know what was going on most of the time. I got the gist of it. Girl from another world "binds" with a boy to save the world from a creature who takes the form of other people as well as a huge snake. But beyond that, I didn't understand the binding or how Sterling got picked to join with Tetra, how she found him initially, etc. There was very little information about their past encounters or anything about Tetra's background. There was so much missing from the story for me that was never developed by the time the book ended.

That said, I enjoyed the interaction of the students at the school. Some of what happened was downright hilarious. However, there wasn't enough personal information about Tetra to really make me care about her, and I never understood how she seemed invisible to everyone but Sterling for the first part of the book. Did she somehow erase ALL those people's memories continuously? Things like that didn't make sense, but if you suspend your need to understand and know what is going on, it's a pleasant enough diversion from reality.

The narration was good, and the variety of vocal inflection and tone made it easy to distinguish the different characters. The only drawback was that it sounded like a cassette tape running, with hissing and popping/static-type sounds, in the background. It wasn't severe, but it was noticeable.

I would recommend this as a good audiobook for the YA crowd.
