Publisher's Summary

I loved him at 15. I thought we'd stand the test of time. He was my forever but maybe I fell too fast or loved him too much. Maybe I came on too strong or maybe I did something wrong. He still left. Turned his back on me without a word. I never thought I'd see him again and to be honest, I didn't want to. I began to hate him even though he would never know it. But then, I did see him again and with him came the secrets that would forever change all of our lives.
She was only a recurring dream in my foggy subconscious. A voice. A face. We weren't supposed to dream. We weren't supposed to remember. They said it was impossible and the before would never come into the now. None of the others remember, at least not that I know of. What I do know is that she was my everything, my every waking breath. Now that I've found her I will not be losing her a second time. She will be mine again, no matter what the cost.
Ages 18+ due to language and sexual content.

GENUINELY UNIQUE TWIST FOR A FANTASY WORLD

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

I love Gary Furlong and he didn't disappoint. First time listen to Aundrea Mitchell and she was very good. Narration fit perfectly for the characters.

Although there wasn't a lot of explanation or preparation for the types of beings (angry, clueless Angels, Ascendants, Dominating Archs, Human Fallen, Evil Fallen), there was enough to understand their worth and position in the plot's hierarchy. Obviously the Ascended are important as they hold some power from both Angels and Fallen. There weren't enough "Holy Crap" moments because no way could I have learned about or witnessed what Laney was becoming without some serious mental and verbal adjustments. And the the plot progressed at one speed... fast. No ups and downs of revelations and reflections. Not sure if I'm getting my thoughts across, BUT... I really did love the story. I hope the next in the series slows down a pace and fills in some quieter moments, allowing me to know the characters better.

The writing complexity wasn't very extensive; like high school level verses a deeper mature level. So it was fun, not haunting. There was minimal hot-dang sexual content, but frequent mentions of how hard Kass was. The series needs to either "up the ante" or cash-out and choose the YA genre.

But again... for all the little "iffy's" I've mentioned, I really liked the freshness of the fantasy world and it's characters and plot. So I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

Two thumbs pointing up, but not wagging them yet.

What's Next?!

This book is "sitting on the edge of your seat" good! The back and forth banter between Laney and Kass was great. While I enjoyed the narration from Gary Furlong, I wasn't in love with the narration of Aundrea Mitchell. Her narration of the story didn't take away from the plot, but it wasn't my favorite aspect of the book. I can't wait to see what happens next!
