This is the most poorly recorded audio book I've purchased. The sound quality is very bad - echoey and harsh. It was obviously not recorded in a studio, or even an moderately appointed home recording space. The narrator only makes things worse. Though she has a great voice for all the characters - good accents and believable voices which really bring the characters to life, it doesn't make up for the battering narrative sections. The narrated sections (the vast majority of the book) are really hard to listen to - truly headache inducing. I feel like the author is yelling the story at a passing crowd - it is brutal. I couldn't finish the audio version - and I recommend that you stick to the print version, too. Do yourself a favor and at least listen to the sample before purchasing - listen to the entire 5 minute segment. At first you may not find it to be too bad, but after 5 minutes, you will begin to get an idea of how strident and painful the narration is....can you listen to it for another 13 hours?

I tried. I really did. The narrator is speaking like she's at a conference making this incredibly hard to follow or be engaged. I'll have to try again reading the story instead of listening to it.

Any additional comments?
I'd been really looking forward to this book and Eliana & Demetrius' story! It did not disappoint! This couple go through a lot in this book. I found myself alternately shouting at Eliana to trust Demetrius and sympathising with her cause she's been basically brainwashed into believing Demetrius wants to kill her and the rest of her group by someone she's known and trusted her whole life. She doesn't know what to believe anymore.
I loved a lot of the secondary characters, especially Mel, Eliana's best friend. I loved Mel's sense of humour and how she believed in both Eliana and Demetrius.
I really enjoyed the couple's journey and the new developments in the series. I laughed at times and at other times I will admit to getting a little teary eyed. I'm hoping that they'll still be a part of the next book and that perhaps Mel will have a big part to play as I really liked her character!
A great book and series! I highly recommend it
It's actually a good series, a bit repetitive but otherwise I like it. Well read and was easy to listen to.
I read the other previews on this book and I nearly skipped it by. Than I thought I have listened to a few of JT Geissinger's books and haven't been disappointed yet. Im so glad I didn't, best book so far. The Narrator let the book down abit. She read it very crisp and matter a factly especially the lead females voice. It was abit of putting at times but the story out shine that.
So enjoyed it JT I am now a big fan cheers
