This was a really fun listen. It's classic YA distopian fantasy, Elspeth is on a quest to save her band of talented Misfits. It has likeable characters, an absorbing plot and the author does a good job of the narration. This was a favorite book of mine as a teenager and I really enjoyed revisiting it as an audiobook.
This is book 2 in the Obernewtyn series and it is highly recommended that you read book 1 first as this carries on from it without much introduction.
The book is set two years after the end of book 1 with elspeth having to visit the downlands to rescue a misfit.
The book itself is a really good read and the audio book is brilliantly narrated by the author isobelle herself
I thought the storyline was great however the characters lack depth and relationships between characters are extremely superficial. For this reason I found it hard to really get into this book. On top of that, to me this series seems more like one book, split up into a series which of course ends up costing triple (I think there are three in the series??) the amount of money. The narrator was ok but a little monotone. I wont be buying book three.
author does a fantastic job of reading this book. this second instalment in the obernewtyn chronicles progresses this world quite well
