Brilliant, amazing, excellent, must-read...

A lovable rogue, a beautiful goddess of a super woman, a dystopian future where religion has been outlawed (well, in 'north america', anyway).

And along comes some pesky gods to bugger it all up.

The rogue is forced to face demons, the goddess discovers her mortality, while all the while gods are trying to immortalise them both.

It's fast paced and you'll quickly become invested in the characters and the story. I'm gutted that it's a loonnnggg wait till book 2.

Absolutely loved this story!

A refreshing story amidst supernatural teen books

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I love a good teen vampire book and have read a fair few, but this book is such a refreshing change in story and characters that was hooked fairly quickly. Having read Meads other books, I really enjoyed the overall story and pace of the book but was difficult to understand the world the story is set in as there are little clues and you have to piece together or come up with your own take on who's who and what.

What does Emily Shaffer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Excellently read with different voices for characters made it easy to understand who was talking. Sometimes it's nice to just listen to the story.

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

Being 19 hours long you really couldn't listen to it all, but I did have it one every time I had a spare half hour and got through the book quickly.
