Interesting enough.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Truth Hurts to be better than the print version?

I prefer audio edition especially when the narrator does a great job reading the story.

Which character – as performed by Holly Adams – was your favorite?

Natalie's grandma, she had so much information to give. I guess she was the mysterious one in the story with all the secrets to spill.

Any additional comments?

For a short story the build up was slow and pretty much what the reader wanted was crammed in at the last minute..literally. The story was not bad, just felt like it was rushed at the end.

This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Amazing short story.

This story starts with a little girl named Natalie being dropped of with her grandmother, since her mother has to go to work and has no one else to watch her. The story starts off with the tension between mother and grandmother firmly established. The reason for the tension is discovered when Natalie discovers her grandmother paintings, which it turns out are of an Alien that visited her when she was younger. Natalie is very excited about this , and cajoles her grandmother into telleing her about it. This starts Natalie's fascination with her Grandmother and the aliens. Natalie's mother doesn't believe in them, believing her mother mad, and keeps them separated. Natalie sees her grandmother again on her 16th birthday, and gets more of the story. Her mother walks in on them talking about it, and she separates them for good at that point, but only after Natalie has already learned some dark truths about her mother. This is a character driven story, and Natalie and her grandmother are beautifully written, with a lot of dramatic heft to them. The tensions and secrets in the family keep you guessing who's side is valid.I can't wait to get to the next story.
Narration was handled by the excellent Holly Adams, who did a great job bringing the characters to life.

Great side story from The Secret King series

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a great side story from the Secret King: Lethao story. It has just as much heart and action as the primary book in the series and really augments the overall world well. It's narrated by Holly Adams, instead of Greg Tremblay, but this actually added to the experience for me. Because it is a side story, following a female character, instead of the male, Kendro. Definitely worth checking out!
