The story is great and I'm waiting on the next one, eagerly. It's a little obvious with what is going on, but it's different and I'm interested in where the story is going.
The narrator is irritating. First, where ever in the world this story is set, it is not in America, or any alternative of it. There are phrases, and words used that are obviously not American, yet the narrator uses an American accent. It should be something like English, or something, but not American.
Second, the word Apollo is mispronounced as A-PO-lo all the way through the book. Explain to me, please, what adult person doesn't know how to pronounce Apollo. Maybe I'm being too harsh, but if speaking is your job, you should know how to pronounce everyday words, like say, the Greek god of the sun... Apollo.
Other than the irritating narrative quirks though, it's good. If you can overlook those things, then the listen won't be too bad. And like I said, the story is worth the cringe.
Looking forward to the next one. I really want to know why she doesn't remember who she is. I mean, the clues are not subtle.

This is a pretty good story. I enjoyed the characters and the world created. The story started out really good but fell apart at the end. I'll read the next one because I really liked the characters.

This is a simple, easy to listen to story with some nice creative touches. The writer creates a rich world with impressive dramatic moments. However, the story feels rather brief and there isn't much time for character development. The book is set in Australia and therefore the choice of an American voice to read the book feels odd - especially the American pronunciations of "arse" and "mate". It's a bit jarring, but on the whole bearable.
wow that is one very exciting twist in the end, i wud have never expected it. I thought for sure Alberto was a shadow shaper haha. Anyway i loved this book Lexie who talks to animals and Jake Steel the shaper are really good together, i hope they have more adventures to come. Hollie Jackson has always been one of my favourite narrator and i am not disappointed.
