This was the kind of book that I could take it or leave it because I really felt like something was missing. It's very much a character driven story, which I like, but I also like a bit of world building too. I felt like this was missing a big bit of the world building. We know there is political turmoil going on but we don't know why. We know that there is only two "flocks" of bad bloods left but we don't know why. We also don't know why the two flocks are separate and why they don't really talk. There was too much missing for me to get fully invested in the story,
Character wise, while there are two main ones, Serena or Daniel, we also get to see some of the flocks they belong to. Each chapter of this is told from either Daniel or Serenas POV, which I liked. I also liked thee concept of the story, I just wish there was more depth to it!!
I don't know what else to say about this, because even though I liked it, I just have a lot of negative thoughts about it!! I'm on the fence with regards reading the next in the series because I'd need to make sure the world building is better and we get some answers first!!
The narrator was ok. I did find that he didn't differentiate the characters enough and it was only the fact that the chapters said who was talking that I could follow along. Other than that, he read it ok.
I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Once upon a time, people simply told stories instead of reading them. I think that is part of the allure for me. I have previously read through Thompson's Bad Bloods November Rain and going through a second time in audible format ties in a lot I may have overlooked. A brilliant story starting out paired along with a hypnotic voice to narrate the tale.
