Firstly, if you haven't listened to or read the previous books of the series, this isn't the one to start with because each builds on the ones before, particularly 4, 5, and 6.
The story engaged me from beginning to end with plenty of revelations and just as many new questions. Liv Anderson's narration was spot on as usual and made for a pleasant listen.
In this installment, Kara is back on Earth trying to rescue Idris and joins up again with the old gang. Eilahn, Zack, Jill, and Ryan are all there as well as Tessa, and detectives Pellini and Boudreaux. A lot happens around betrayal and loyalties, and Kara finds herself still a target for the machinations of the Mraztur. There is a scene with Ryan-Szerain that blew me away but saying more would spoil it!
Almost every character increased in richness and depth and the world building leaves me wanting to know more NOW! :)
For a fan of the Kara Gillian series, this is a must-listen! Nothing is black and white.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This book rocked. You really do have to have read the previous 2 books in order to keep up. The investigation was interesting and nail biting. I really liked the unexpected twists at the end.CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!
Who was your favorite character and why?
I really liked Paul & Bryce as a unit because they add a new dimension to the storyline and they help the other characters to change as they needed to.
What about Liv Anderson’s performance did you like?
I enjoy her different voices and the fact that she is "acting" rather than simply reading the lines.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I didn't really have a particular reaction but I went through the rollercoaster ride of the emotions of all of the characters.

Each book gets better than the last. I have never gone from one book to the next so quickly in my life. Next book starts tomorrow!

Would you try another book written by Diana Rowland or narrated by Liv Anderson?
I have listened to the whole series now - and whilst the first book is ok, numbers 2 to 5 actually are good. The characters are engaging, the story amusing and enjoyable, aside from some minor annoyances.
What could Diana Rowland have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The point about this book is that our whole concept of the story is turned upside down - a surprise twist. I like surprise twist normally. But here the twist seems to come with losing any link to any characters, it is incredibly hard to empathise with them anymore because they have become flat facsimile of stereotypes.
Have you listened to any of Liv Anderson’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I like the narrator
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Honestly, not many. The story has a lot of potential but the characters have flatlined.
