Publisher's Summary

On the heavily forested planet of Lumin, the Network has slept, dormant, for over 600 cycles. Only a select few remember that it resides beneath the crust of the planet, waiting, and for those who do, the battle for Lumin's future has raged in the shadows.
When Mia Jayne's path crosses with an ancient volume in the Archives of the Order of Vis Firmitas, this ancient battle moves from the shadows into the light. Compendium opens up a world of knowledge, and, for the first time since arriving at the Order, Mia has the key to reclaim the freedom she has lost. To do so, she must choose between her conscience and her heart. Conceived against an ailing world of fantastical beauty where long-lost technology tips the balance between extinction and survival, Mia must remember that there is always a choice, and that makes all the difference.

Great Writing + Wonderful Narration = Amazing!

Any additional comments?

I’m a sucker for beautiful writing and this book has beautiful writing in spades! Couple that with a fantastic narrator and you have audio book gold! Compendium had me hooked from the beginning. The characters are relatable and engaging, the world is intriguing and beautiful (I long for it to become a movie so I can see it in full color), and the story is unique and compelling! I so enjoyed getting to know the planet of Lumin and the people who are fighting for its future. I can't wait to find out what Mia and the Order do next! If you're looking for your next great listen - this is it!

A wonderful read!

This was such a good book! I loved the combined organic/machine powered by the elder trees. The Compendium is an extraordinary book with lots of surprises. The narration was excellent!
