This is my first Terah Edun book but it definitely won't be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed it. You are brought into the story right from the start and its pretty much a non stop, action packed, roller coaster.
I loved the MC Sara. She was totally kick ass. Despite what everyone thinks about her father, she knows that deep down if he did desert then he had a really good reason to. I admired her faith in him and her tenacity to prove him innocent.
I also love Saras' powers. The idea of her powers, if used constantly, could possibly make her become a beserker was unique and quite awesome! Not only does she battle the people who want to harm her everyday, she also battles her powers and fears.
Ezekiel was awesome too!! He was witty, kind, clever and an all round great person to know. I loved seeing both of them together and seeing their friendship blossom.
The plot was really fast paced and gripping. Poor Sara is put through the paces the whole way through. She is first hired as a watcher (a security guard for magical items). During this time she is forced to guard certain items multiple times, then she learns that her dad may be innocent and ends up as a mercenary to try to get information, then she is sent to a battlefield!! It was so fast paced but also well thought out and developed.
In all I really enjoyed this and will definitely keep on with the series. There are plenty of answers still to come!!
The audio of this was fantastic. The narrator nailed Saras' spunkieness perfectly. She gave each character their own "voice" so it was really easy to differentiate each one.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes I would because the action and narration just pulls you into the story and makes you feel like you are next to each character.

This is my first time ever listening to an audiobook completely because I tend to get annoyed with them, but this was absolutely stunning. The narrator, Sylvia, did an absolutely fantastic job at making me feel like I was surrounded by the world and characters.
Sara is a fantastic character. I loved her determination despite all that she went through. Even being introduced to her was dramatic in a way that made me connect with her straight on. Sara's sword fighting ability was amazing, not to mention the fascinating way she controlled her magic. Sara was simply kickass. I also loved Ezekiel. He was so funny and he seemed like he was a bit dim-witted, but there is so much going on with him that it feels as if he's two different people.
The combination of action and mystery, magic and drama kept me hooked and wanting to know more about the world and characters. I've enjoyed both the story and the characters alongside the narration of this beauty.
I definitely plan to check out the sequel as an audiobook because it's absolutely fun to read and Sara is just simply amazing.

There are so many unanswered questions in this book that I need the next in the series. Have read the Courtlight series by Terah so enjoy her style of writing that goes into great depths creating pictures of both characters and locations. Can recommend.
