The Wilds Book 1
There are stories out there that that can build a fire within you so strong your skin feels the burn even days after it’s ending. They can wrap your mind and heart up so fast and so hard that you’d hate the words on the pages if you weren’t itching so bad to turn the next page... Loving every second of it. That was the case with The Wilds. I’ve never listened to a book on audio as I prefer to draw my fingers across the pages while I absorb its essence. Or hug it to my chest with happy sighs of contentment, or throwing the damn thing across the room in a moment of utter frustration. So this will also be a review of the reading.
For the cons: It took nearly a lifetime to get the beginning of the story out of the way. The protagonists origins/home life and the hate there of, was very constant. I nearly put the book down due to how tiring it was to hear how much hated her dilemma. The narrator did a splendid job throughout the book, although in the beginning took a little to gain her comfort zone. However, after meeting Dahlias friends and their innocent Nancy Drew ways, both the Narrator and the story, take off for the ride of a lifetime.
Pros: I had planned on placing the attitude/characteristic of Dahlia in the con section but I found myself hoping for more of her spunky, young, ‘I know everything’ ways. I began rooting for her innocence to win out and her love for living to shine bright, straight to the end. I have to say, I’m so glad I didn’t put this book down. The characters fast gained places in my heart and made wiggle room only for their fellow conspirators. The many voices for the characters that Angel put into the narration were flawless and lacked nothing. I genuinely enjoyed waiting for the next character to be introduced just so I could meet them and learn how they sounded.
I made my way through the first book in one night, much to the chagrin of my eyelids and I regret absolutely nothing. I will now, at 12 AM, start the next edition in this masterpiece of a series.
And take my word on this... don’t stop reading/listening.

This is the first audio book I've ever listened to and it was fantastic . The author wove an engaging story that I wanted to come along with and the narrator did an amazing job of making the story come to life and keeping me listening.
