An enormous weight lifts off my shoulders when I finish a series, but this time I want it to stay with me a little longer. We learn so much and Amelia and the gang come so far, it almost doesn't seem fair for it to end. But this ending is more than I could have asked for. When you get chills from listening, you know it's good. Grade a fantasy fiction if there ever was any!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely. The story is great and the audio work is wonderful!
Who was your favorite character and why?
I have enjoyed all the characters. Each has their own strong personality that is brought to life through audio here. I can't pick just one. Amelia, Aidan, Bethany, Micah, and Cole. Those are just the main characters. Even the secondary ones are fun.
What about Kristin James’s performance did you like?
Kristin is always a treat for me to listen to. Her favorite voice for me, Bethany and her sweet southern accent. And oh, the strong personality for Bethany that pops with the accent. lol. And Micah's accent. I love it! This is a great cast that Kristin makes fun to listen to and easy to differentiate the characters as they speak. The different characters personalities and attitudes ever present in their voices. Male and females are all different in accent, tone, and feels as we listen. Oh! When two sing a song, we get both voices! The harmony of the two together. I love when we get these little extras that makes the story feel more alive with the characters.
Any additional comments?
Not only do we journey through the prophecy of what's to come of Amelia and Aidan, but we also get to the root of Amelia's Keeper power mystery. Amelia has grown! I was worried going in that the book would fall flat for getting us through Amelia's Keeper powers. Yet we get something a little different other than her finding a way to work with what she has. I enjoyed this. She's come into her own with help from someone we didn't expect. She finally faces the magic and love that she's been scared of for so long. We even end with a fight that's not as deadly as it could have been. It moves quick and keeps us listening yet with Amelia and Aidan in the place they are now, it doesn't need to be bloody. It's more than that.
I really liked this ending!
A wonderful YA read of letting yourself love and accept who you are. Even when in battles, it doesn't always have to end ugly. There are options and choices in life that you get to pick from even if it doesn't seem that way. You need to accept and live by your choices.
I love the feel of the theme in this story. How Amelia is bound by what was set in motion, through prophecy, for her. But in the ending, all learn they are not bound by others but that they are bound by their choices in life. It felt like it really hit to the heart for me.
