This is one of my favorite series of all time! I have been waiting for years for it to finally be on audible so thrilled!

I purchased this book because it was described as a cross between Harry Potter and Twilight, two of my favorite things! While not as life changing as either of the above mentioned, still very good and I will continue on to book two.

The premise is fine, it could be good, but sadly isn’t. Trying to be twilight in a Harry Potter setting and failing to hit either mark at all.
I was made uncomfortable by the misogyny of the prose - idiot girl needs men to save her continuously, none of whom deign to offer her any explanation as to why. There is a lack of emotional depth to any of the characters, and the lead male is completely unlikable, treating the lead female extraordinarily badly throughout. I realise this is a children’s book, but this is not a healthy model of relationships to be presenting to anyone.
A personal issue: There are some phrases that cropped up repeatedly that must be American vernacular, which I found grating:
‘On accident’ and ‘could care less’.
None of this has made me eager to listen to the next book, which is disappointing as I am a committed HP fan and enjoyed Twilight too.
