3.5 stars for the story and the narration
Good start to a series. The story overall was entertaining, fun, interesting and enjoyable. It kept my attention from start to finish. For a shorter book there is a lot packed into it. The story is a much deeper mystery than I first thought it would be. It took a turn I wasn't expecting when I first started the book, but it just made the story more suspenseful and intriguing.
The ending seemed a little rushed and flat after all the buildup. You don't get all the answers to the mystery. It is the first in a series so it leaves an opening for the next book. I'm interested to see where the mystery and story go from here.
Great characters with a creative and interesting storyline.
Nicholas Patrella did a really good job with the narration. Pleasant voice. Clearly spoken. Good character voices. Good accents for characters. He was able to bring the characters emotions to life through his narration. His narration fit the story, calm when necessary, faster when the characters were excited or in a hurry. Although the narration doesn't always flow smoothly and there are awkward pauses occasionally.
Mispronounced words occasionally or maybe it's just a matter of what part of the country you come from as to how certain words are pronounced.
