Since Bree and Ana were small, their mother told them they have to hide their powers because they are Unknowns. Now they rely on a Sorcerer to create a talisman to keep them hidden, but when they can't pay said Sorcerer, he sends goons to collect. The goons hit the girls with a deadly curse before they are saved by some strangers. Bree and Ana have a limited amount of time to get the antidote before they die, but thankfully the strangers that saved them are from the elite Undercover Protectorate and the girls are invited to join them. Can they get the antidote in time though?
This is my first book by this author and I have to say that I loved it!! I know these characters have been in another of the authors series, but this is fine to read if you haven't read any of them as I followed along fine!!
Right from the start, you are drawn into the world and action. The two main characters are Bree and Ana, though Bree is featured more prominently. The whole story is action packed and intense, it's filed with adventure and even has a God!! The whole plot was seriously amazing. The authors writing just brought the world alive.
The best thing for me was the characters. I loved both Bree and Ana. Both were incredibly well written and developed and I loved seeing them grow. All the characters from the Protectorate were intriguing and I can't wait to get to know them more. I also loved Cade. I'm dying to know more about the God of War!!
In all, this was such a great read. I really had a hard time putting this down and I need book 2 now!!!
Laurel Schroeder was fantastic. She put emotion behind her characters and they really came alive. She is definitely a narrator I need to listen to more.
I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

I absolutely love this author and have enjoyed every single book she writes. This book is a spin off of another series but you could read it as a stand alone. I was familiar with several of the characters and have enjoyed all her previous books.
Narration is always top notch with this author/narrator and this one was excellent like always.
I love this young adult Paranormal Romance with lots of action, adventure, and a touch of romance. The characters are well developed and the world building is always well done. The story flows in a great pace!
I’m looking forward to her next book! You cannot go wrong with Linsey Hall! Her books are always a lot of fun to listen to!

The narrator was lackluster and sounded depressive. I felt like she was putting the intonation on the wrong words and stopping at the wrong time to take a breath. I believed she could do better but she is unexperienced.
For me this book was a bit of a slow burner to the point I was considering whether to persist as I kind of didn’t like it. However I suggest you persist as I did, once I got into the book I found I really started to enjoy it. I guess I was not keen because it really doesn’t offer any background to the characters instead jumping right into the scene not giving me time to relate. For this reason I think it’s probably better to read the prequel book of this series (not one I have read yet but did see mentioned in a review I read)
As far as the narrator goes, she was great, really adding to the story. Other than the slow burn and lack of background, I really just wish these audiobooks were at least twice as long. $15 for just 6 hours of listening is a bit pricey and putting me off buying the next instalment despite really enjoying the first book. I think I will wait till I can buy it discounted combined with the kindle version.
