The story is very well written. From the beginning, I was sucked in and it was hard to put it down. The story is interesting and quite complex. There is adventure, danger, suspense, humor, and romance.
Narration was well done and brought the story to life.
There is a lot of detail and unique character development. There are also quite a few twists and turns to throw us off. I had to listen to most of it with little distraction because there is so much going on that you need to focus or you will miss something important. Everything happens at a good pace though, not too fast or too slow.

I quite enjoyed this book. The world and peoples with their feylin capabilities were new to me. A refreshing new tale.
This is a book you need to listen to without too many distractions. Often the narrative switches between Talia, Hark and the Prophetess but is said in the first person- "I". Often I had to rewind to figure out who "I" was, and then "the doll" too. Especially since the voices for them are not too different. Also, the storyline switches quite quickly (hence paying attention to the book), one moment they are in one place doing one thing, and the next you're rewinding the book thinking "how did they get here?
The book starts with an event that parallels the end of the book. Then we meet Hark and Talia. She is a recruiter for the Feylin Order and recruits Hark. Not long after we learn Talia is not whom she initially seems, she has many secrets and a complicated personality. She is to embark on a quest and Hark is to join her. and there is plenty of strife, drama and trials they need to overcome.
The narrator did a good job reading this book. My only criticism is the characters voices were very similar and everyone often spoke in a 'happy' tone which did not seem appropriate in all situations. Despite this, it was still pleasant listening to Crystal narrate. I would listen to another book narrated by her.
I would happily listen to/read another book by this author.
There is not any explicit sex or swearing. For the overly squeamish, there are a few scenes you'll probably want to gloss over, yet, they are not too gory.
