Publisher's Summary

In Domengrad, there are rules all must live by: Fear the Gods. Worship the Magicians. Forsake the Iconoclasts.
To Annabelle Klein, the rules laid down by the Magicians are the mere ramblings of stuffy old men. As far as she's concerned, the historic Iconoclasts, heretics who nearly destroyed the Magicians so long ago, are nothing but myth. She has much more important matters to worry about.
Heiress to a manor mortgaged down to its candlesticks and betrothed to her loathsome cousin, 16-year-old Annabelle doubts the gods could forsake her more.
Then Annabelle is informed of her parents' sudden and simultaneous deaths, and all of the pigment drips out of her skin and hair, leaving her colorless. Within moments, Annabelle is invisible and forgotten by all who know her.
Living like a wraith in her own home, Annabelle discovers that to regain her color she must solve the mystery behind her parents' murders and her strange transformation.
Meanwhile, hundreds of the Magicians' monks, with their all-black eyes and conjoined minds, have usurped control of Annabelle's family manor. An Iconoclast is rumored to be about-a person who they claim goes unseen, unheard, and lost to memory, yet is the greatest threat to all of Domengrad. For the first time in 100 years, the monks plan to unleash the dire wolves of old.
Their only target: Annabelle.

Magic, dire wolves, no one remembers her/sees her

Narrated by: Lauri Jo Daniels
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
This is a very unusual book. I didn't know what it really was going to be about and just let the story hit me. Wow, I love different and boy, it is! A girl's parents die, in their room, the reader fears foul play. When the girl is told by the maids that her parents are dead, suddenly, no one remembers her...all her color disappears from her clothes and everything she touches. She lives in the house with servants but no one see or acknowledges her. She is to be married and even he has forgotten or has he? It is a very unusual book. It has magic, evil-ish monks, dire wolves, and a foggy hint of other...delightful for the strange like me. I think it lagged a bit getting started but once on a roll it was good.
The narrator had the perfect voice for that eerie, quiet, otherness....all that was needed was a thick blanket of fog...

Captivating Story

I loved this unique, thrilling story of one girls fight against an evil regime. It is not the everyday tale of a brave hero, it has an unusual and totally captivating storyline. Set in a period world where a dictatorship of manipulative magicians rule, their wills endorsed by the creepiest monks ever, Annabelle is unknowingly thrust into a fight for her life. As the colour drained from her and she became invisible and forgotten by almost everyone, Annabelle learns the truth of what she has become and the reason behind her parents and other nobles’ deaths. She is hunted by both the congregation and the magician controlled dire wolves, but with the help of unlikely friends, she finds the courage and means to fight for her life and freedom. This story takes you on an exciting journey that pulls at your heartstrings, has twists that surprise and keeps you enthralled to the very last page. The narrator did an ok job and I enjoyed it overall but I did find some of her accents a bit strange. Annabelle’s voice was a little too girlish at times and Dylan’s was just a bit odd, as if the narrator was trying a bit too hard to distinguish between characters, but then Tony’s, Ms Egress’s and some others suited the characters well. I loved the different relationships between the characters, from the hints of romance between Dylan and Annabelle, to her grudging friendship with Joseph and the hair standing up on the back of your neck monks; each had depth and merged to form a truly entertaining and exciting story. I cannot wait for the next in the series.

Different

I liked the plot of the story and the world building. I thought it was different and orginal to others that I have read in this genre.
I would have liked however more of a description/explanation about the other groups mentioned in this book. I also found it slow going. It took a long while before we found out somethings, but other then this I thought it was a great read.
The narrator did a great job in voicing the characters.

I would highly recommend this book.

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

Intriguing characters, premise and story!

I loved the premise of the story. You will have read the synposis/description so I wont repeat it.
As a concept it really appealed to me and I think it was well executed. The characters are interesting, theirs plenty going on to keep you interested.
It not like other books and thats a good thing. Its what appealed to me and I think the author delivers on the promise. Very creative in terms of the concept and story and suspenseful as a book. I enjoyed it.

The narrator was a great fit for this book in terms of making it feel different maybe even creepy at times but with a voice that is also a pleasure to listen too.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review

Not sure of this book

This book writes of a concept I have not come across in any other book so is a refreshing change. I am not decided if I want to continue to the next book. Although I have given it 3 stars it is more a 3 1/2 .
