The Wilds series interweaves a post-apocalyptic world with the evolution of supernatural abilities. The fourth book in the series delivers the goods on the questions that build throughout the series. Who are the Dark Walkers? What are the beasts and where did they come from? What do the Skinners use the skin for? What is the Wood Mist and why are they in opposition to the Dark Walkers? And, most of all, what does any of this have to do with Dal, Dax, and their friends? Entertaining read!
So, usually when I read a book to myself, the main character is fairly likable and interesting. I have no problem understanding the motivation behind the actions they take or don't take.
In this book, I hated the protagonist. She was stupid. She was clueless. She did stupid stuff simply because she felt like it. She seriously didn't get what the heck was going on... with her lovelife, her motivations, or anything.
It made for good reading. Even as I was rolling my eyes (as I drove down I-5 to go to work), listening to the exploits of this girl, I found myself excited to see what was going to happen next.
The story: 5 stars. I liked the story, and emotionally reacted to the protagonist.
The narration: This series was the first time I'd listened to Angel Clark as a narrator, and I enjoyed it. Some of the 'boy' voices were a little overdone (like Bookie's) but he was always recognizable without needing a prompt as to his identity. I really enjoyed the pacing of the narration. Not too fast, not too slow. Very listenable.
This version was Whispersync for Voice ready, a feature I was really happy to use.
